WNU Weekends: Salcombe

Our founder's hometown is hard to beat to kick off our #staycationseries...
-
-
Location:
Salcombe, Devon.

Recommended season:
All year round, we might be biased...

Average temperature:
13 degrees in Autumn, 19 degrees midsummer.

Distance from WNU HQ:
216 miles
To stay:
The Gara Rock Hotel is top of the list, with ocean views from bed and free-standing baths. The hot chocolates are particularly good - perfect after a wet walk.
-
To do:
The beach when the sun shines and the beach in a waterproof jacket when it doesn’t.
-

To pack:
Sailor Stripes of course! Naturally you'll want the Brushed in every colour - as well as the Linen to layer up under knits. Oh, and a waterproof.



To sit:
On the wall of The Ferry with a drink overlooking the estuary.

Day trip:
Walk the costal path of Bolt Head around to Hope Cove, a neighbouring costal town (almost) rivalling Salcombe in its charm.

To eat:
Captain Flints. A pirate themed pizzeria on the main high street – if you know, you know.




For the evening:
Summer days on the beach turn into nights, so big cool boxes of wine and sausages to barbeque are a must.


To buy:

Pasties and Doughnuts from The Bake House and pick & mix from Cranches sweet shop, with its concerningly Instagramable pink striped exterior.
