5 Reasons to Spend your Honeymoon in Salcombe by Salcombes Finest.

  1. It’s stress-free.

Forget dashing to the airport, worrying about parking, making sure you’ve got the right currency… Honeymoons in the UK are beautiful in their simplicity. All you’ve got to do is make your way to Salcombe. If you’ve got a four-legged friend, honeymooning in the UK is even better – you can take your dog with you. All you have to do is find dog-friendly accommodation and pack some extra treats.

2. Romantic walks are everywhere.

Honeymoon in Salcombe and you’ll have miles and miles of spectacular walks to explore. Walk hand in hand along the outstanding beauty of South Devon’s coastline. Take a sunset stroll on the soft beaches and you won’t need much convincing that you’re in a paradise to rival any tropical beach. For incredible views, take a wander along the coastal path from East Portlemouth to Gara Rock.

  1. There’s luxury accommodation to rival any foreign destination.

No matter what kind of honeymoon you have in mind, you’ll find the perfect place to stay in Salcombe. Sea views where you can enjoy a picturesque breakfast in bed? No problem. Rural retreat? You’ve got it. Beachfront beauty? That’s available, too.

If you want pampering, or want to be close to the sea to jump into some watersports, if you want to be close to the gourmet restaurants, you’ll have plenty to choose from. There are even cottages and lettings with hot tubs ready for you to sink into with a glass of something fizzy to celebrate your nuptials.

  1. Fabulous food is at your fingertips.

Gaze into each other’s eyes across the table as you sit down to gourmet meals and delicious local specialities. Seafood lovers will be in heaven – mussels, clams, langoustines and ever-romantic oysters are all on the menu. Not to mention Salcombe crab, which will quickly become a firm favourite of any seafood connoisseur.


Mouth-watering fare is on offer at a wide range of restaurants – from the exceptional dishes at The Harbour Hotel to the relaxed ambiance of The Winking Prawn. Dick & Wills offers spectacular views for a romantic dinner overlooking the estuary.

  1. You can be as chilled or as active as you like.

Every couple is different, which is why people love different types of honeymoon – and sometimes each person in a couple wants something a bit different, too. Luckily, in Salcombe you can cater to both of you. Looking to chill and relax? There’s a spa, beaches you can stretch out on for days, and even the option of having your own personal pampering team come to your holiday cottage.

For the active types, you’ve got sailing and powerboating, fishing, waterskiing, surfing, sea kayaking, and paddle boarding. And that’s just in the sea. On land, you can explore the walks, go for a coastal run, or pop into the gym.

Choosing your honeymoon is a big decision. Salcombe is South Devon’s jewel, and you won’t be disappointed.
