BFB's Overview

This lovely family house with its useful self-contained garden flat - ideal for grandparents joining family holidays - is a real find thanks to its quiet residential setting just a short five minute stroll downhill (longer on the way up!) to the centre of picturesque Salcombe. The famously pretty yachting town's pretty cobbled streets, shops and bistros are on the doorstep, whilst the lovely sandy beach is just 20 minutes away on foot. Along with it convienent location, amongst its best assets are the views over the town, countryside and scenic Batson Creek from the bedrooms and large decked terrace (very safely enclosed) - best enjoyed whilst cooking up a storm on the BBQ or simply relaxing with glass of wine at the end of a long sunny day!

Crossways is clearly owned by a family with lots of experinece with young children. There's allocated parking outside and a long list of equipment including safety gear like stairgates and plug covers and useful items like bath mats, puree makers, microwave, dishwasher and washer dryer (full list below). All of which assist greatly in insuring a relaxing and enjoyable holiday with babies/toddlers in tow.

The house itself has been recently refurbished and has a lovely, bright, open-plan downstairs area, awash with light from its many picture windows and a well-equipped, stylish contemporary kitchen diner with archway through to the spacious lounge equipped with TV, DVD player ane music centre. Upstairs, the first floor has a double bedroom, a twin/double (zip'n'link) and a twin, plus a family bathroom (with bath and shower), whilst the attic room on the floor above has a double with Vi Spring mattress and ensuite shower room. The Garden flat benefits from lovely views of the water and town beyond and proves a very handy extra space for those travelling with larger parties or split family groups. It has been thoughtfully furnished in keeping with the main house and sleeps 4 in one double and one twin. Outside, guests taking the whole house have the choice between enjoying the stunning views from the roof terrace (very sfaely enclosed) which is accessed via sliding doors from the main kitchen, or enjoying the pretty lawned garden, both boast outdoor furniture and gas barbeques . Either has enough space for a small padding pool or scooting about on a small ride-on.

Location Information

Salcombe is often regarded as 'England's St. Tropez' due to the glamorous yachts it attracts. With yachts come great bistros and boutiques and Dick & Wills, overlooking the water comes highly recommended. For child-friendly meals, Island Street Cafe Bar(closed in winter) is great fun and doesn't feel like a compromise for the adults either. Great days out include tours with lunch at nearby Sharpham Vineyard and Riverford Organics – both have well-respected cafe-bistros on-site. For the more energetic watersports such as surfing, windsurfing and water-skiing are available locally, as are boats trip and private boat and skipper hire. Family fun can be found in spades at nearby Pennywell Farm Park, Paignton Zoo or Blackpool Sands Beach, which was recently voted best family beach in the UK by Conde Nast Traveller thanks to its toddler sandpit, paddling pool, easy parking, clean toilets and great cafe serving organic kiddies meals. For a special evening out, try dressing up for an evening of Art Deco glamour with a dinner dance at the famous Burgh Island Hotel.

Who owns this place?

After the birth of their first son - owners Jane Brown and Tim Wells quickly learnt that travelling with a little one can be hard work with having to remember the travel cot, the high chair, the toys, the bath things etc. They looked to create a family friendly holiday home in their favourite seaside town of Salcombe. They fell in love with the beauty and pace of life in Salcombe.

If you are looking for a family friendly holiday let then Crossways is the place for you.
Tim and Jane now have 4 children and have owned holiday lets since 2001, and so have plenty of experience in holidaying with young children and looking after guests!



Fun in the sea!

What do they love about it?

The space for the little one to roll around and explore

Being able to park right outside - no stress of trying to find a car parking space

The large patio to enjoy the view of Salcombe and the water while cooking on the BBQ

The nearest sandy beach only being a 20 minute walk away or a five minute walk and a short ferry ride.

Lots of lovely cafes and restaurants serving everything from cakes and buns to fabulous 3 course meals within walking distance

Salcombe is a lovely safe town where older children are given a freedom to wander and enjoy some independence in a way you do not get in large cities.

We also enjoy the fact that without Sky we actually spend some time away from the screens and the children have even been known to read and play board games!


What do the kids love about it?

Our 4 kids love going to Salcombe. They enjoy building sandcastles on the beach which is a short walk away and then getting the sea tractor and ferry home again. They are always keen to have a cocktail and a pizza at at Captain Flints which is just a short walk down the hill. If you do want to get in the car then Woodlands near Dartmouth is a real crowd pleaser with a huge soft play area. They love visiting the wonderful traditional sweet shop and the toy shop.

  • Thoroughly lovely holiday and we will visit again.Review dated 03/11/2014

  • We stayed over Christmas and had a wonderful time. In a perfect location, just a short walk to the town, with amazing views. The children were well catered for with a great range of toys and baby accessories. They were even left christmas presents by the owner which was a lovely touch.Review dated 02/01/2012

  • Salcombe is a lovely location but you will need to be strong to push a buggy up and down all the hills which are extremely steep. Owner Response: Thank you for rating us so highly for Baby/Toddler friendliness. Other than the hill approaching the house the heart of Salcombe itself is level and easily mangeable with a pushchair.Review dated 25/09/2010
