East Portlemouth, Salcombe , South Devon, Away from it all

Seacombe is a secluded, coastal contemporary holiday house in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near East Portlemouth, Salcombe. It has a large garden, a path across fields to a lovely beach, incredible views, well-equipped luxury accommodation and a hi-tech cinema.

Surrounded by National Trust farmland, Seacombe is approached down a private stone track. The site had been owned by the family for over 20 years before the existing wooden shack was replaced by the new building. Annie, a qualified architect, designed and supervised the project. Glyn managed the self-build, Jane, Will and Joe helped and Mark (Annie’s partner) was the carpenter.

The result has won awards and the plaudits of all who have stayed there. From the rear, the cedar-clad building is low-key as it is built into the hill with huge glass windows to the south.
