Devonhill Hero 1

Devonhill The South West

A hillside hideaway with views of the sea

Set among the trees with glimpses of the sea beyond, Devonhill in Salcombe feels like the most exciting treehouse. As the wooded garden slopes steeply below, the balconies are among the treetops. Large sliding doors sweep aside to capture the full effect. Out on the balconies, you can gather for a barbecue, hide in a hanging seat with a good book, or immerse yourself in the hot tub.

Back in the spacious living area, the décor blends a mid-century Scandi vibe with a nod to the nautical location. This room is big enough to roll out the table tennis and not disturb the movie buffs watching the HD TV at the other end. If they do get grumpy, they can always retreat to the separate sitting room. Meanwhile, the open plan kitchen gives way to a dining area with glass walls, a balcony and sea views.

During the day, cosy up on the sofas around the log burner in the sitting room, hang out in the hanging pods and designer chairs close to the open fire, or sit at one of the tables with your laptop. Later, throw open the balcony doors and it’s party time, blending outdoor and indoor with space to mingle, drink and dance.

Smart bedrooms and bathrooms continue the Scandi-meets-seaside theme, while the treetops outside your window keep the treehouse adventure alive.

If you can tear yourself away, drop down the hill to the harbour for a beachside barbecue at the Winking Prawn, a wander round the harbour to watch the yachts or to make your own gin at the Salcombe Distillery Company.

What we think

This stunning coastal hideaway couldn’t be better located to explore this wonderfully scenic part of South Devon. You’ll also have the chance to enjoy an amazing mix of indoor/outdoor living thanks to the large bi-fold doors that open onto the terrace that runs the length of the house.
