About Us

The Fortescue Inn Salcombe

The Fortescue Inn Salcombe is off the beaten track we are nestled away from prevailing wind. We have 3 log fires.

Salcombe was once a major port for the fruit trade.Over the years, has found fame as a safe haven for family holidays and visiting yachtsmen.

It is situated at the southern end of the Salcombe Estuary. The estuary is, in fact, a ria which is a landlocked, salt water inlet, with beautiful, safe, sandy beaches.

The whole area is a Marine Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Marine Local Nature Reserve and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The estuary is bordered by magnificent cliffs which form part of the South West Coast Path well loved by walkers throughout the year. The South West Coast Path has been mentioned recently in the Great Adventures book. Published by the Lonely Planet, as one of the world’s most awe inspiring hikes. Described as “walking at its most diverse and most spectacular”. The South West Coast Path is the only hike in the UK to make it into the highly respected guide book.

We have two pretty beaches, North Sands beach and South Sands beach., And beyond on the hillside is “Overbecks” National Trust property. The house is a small, interesting museum. Because of the micro climate we have warm summers and mild winters.

Looking from Salcombe over the water is the village of East Portlemouth with its lovely beaches. There is a ferry from town which runs regularly to the other side. If you are adventurous you can find smaller beaches joining the South West Coast Path, dipping down from path to beach.
