About Ringmore House
Your Hosts, Karen & Simon
Karen & Simon LOVE Salcombe. They have visited Salcombe every year since 1980.
They have been letting Ringmore House since it’s purchase in 2003, and they let other property, both abroad and in the UK, so you can rest assured you are in the hands of some very capable and experienced hosts.
Due to their extensive local knowledge, they are always more than happy to help out with recommendations in Salcombe for anything from day-trips to places to eat.
Look no further for your ideal hosts in Salcombe!
Fantastic Central Location
Located merely seconds away on foot from Fore Street, you’ll struggle to find a holiday rental in Salcombe which is closer to the action!
High Quality Beds & Linen
The beds at Ringmore House are kitted out with high-end bedding and linen, without exception. Did someone say sweet dreams?
Tastefully Furnished Throughout
Exquisite furnishing throughout, totally befitting of the period property it lies within.
From the very moment you step inside Ringmore House, you have that inescapable feeling of the quality that goes with a listed period property. Steeped in history, the building is formerly the Old Post Office building in Courtenay Street, right in the heart of Salcombe’s Golden Triangle.
The high ceilings and beautifully crafted cornicing catch your eyes, as the views of the estuary speak to you with one word. Salcombe. The uninterrupted views of the estuary are quite breathtaking and of course give you real confidence that you do not need to travel far, to get to where the action is. You are a matter of yards away from the waters edge.

The most perfect location! Everything was easy on arrival and there was great communication from Simon and his PA. Would defs rent again. This place is so close to the action.
The house was lovely, the location couldn’t actually be any more perfect and though I didn’t have much direct communication from Simon, his PA was always on hand.
Ideal position, hustle & bustle, and a fabulous view of the estuary. We enjoyed our stay so very much and all in all, would recommend Ringmore House.
Superb location in the centre of a lovely town. Welcoming host and very well equipped house. Highly recommend!

Pubs & Bars
The Victoria is a famous Salcombe pub, based on Fore Street which is a very short walk away from Ringmore House, about 2 minutes at most. The Victoria’s owners have set a strong emphasis on sourcing local ingredients, and have built up a strong friendship network of Salcombe’s nearyby Farmers and fishermen. They serve a great selection of ales and great food.
The ferry has been a pub all the way back since 1739, and has remained a family favourite in Salcombe ever since then. It boasts the supreme views over the estuary, a great selection of local beers & ales, and of course great food.
Another of Salcombe’s famous pubs. The Fortescue is based right in the centre of Salcombe, on Union street. The Fortescue boasts 3 log burners, 2 bars, 1 restaurant, a jukebox, pool table, and table football.
An ideal location for the kids. The winking prawn is so close to the beach you’ll likely be grabbing a bite to eat in your swimming costume. There are great views overlooking a gorgeous bay, and the selection of ice creams and childrens meals are unbeatable.
Situated right near the water in the heart of Salcombe on Fore Street, Captain Flints is an absolute MUST for families. Captain flints has been serving excellent food with a fun, funky, and welcoming attitude for more than 25 years. They have a great selection of pizzas, pastas, cocktails & even mocktails for the young ones.
Although a relatively new addition to Salcombe, the Crab Shed is not one to be missed. Being voted “Best Restaurant 2015” by Food & Drink Devon says it all. The Crab shed is based near the Fish Quay right in the heart of the town and boasts it’s own “Crab Factory” connected to its restaurant. All their fish and seafood arrives on site daily, so it does not get fresher than this!
If you are looking for something slightly more high-end and/or romantic, then Boatswains Brasserie is highly considered to serve some of the best food in Salcombe. Fantastic wines and seafood dishes, combined with a welcoming and intimate atmosphere make this a spot you should definitely check out. We’d recommend it more as a dinner spot, rather than a lunch choice.
DickandWills poses a suitable alternative to BoatSwains Brasserie if you are looking for high-end brasserie-style-food (particularly at lunchtime, and if you are desperate to have views of the gorgeous Salcombe estuary whilst you eat). DickandWills serve excellent food, have great service, and have unparalleled panoramic views overlooking the entire estuary.
Outdoor/Adventure & Day Trips
Renting a boat from Whistrand is a great way to experience Salcombe from a different perspective. Use it to go and explore some of the fantastic and private beach coves the Salcombe has to offer, or simply admire the town from the water. Whitestrand has been operating for over 3 decades, so you know you’re in safe hands.
Adventure South provides outdoor adventure experiences out of Salcombe. They offer a large mix of activities to suit all ages; coasteering, kayaking, wakeboarding, donuting, scenic tours, boat tours, paddle boarding and much more.
North Sands Beach
A short trip outside Salcombe, North Sands beach is a great place to go for the day, especially if you have dogs with you as North Sands is dog-friendly. There is a large car park if you are going by car, and a fantastic cafe/restaurant called the Winking Prawn if you wanted to have something to eat.
Local Shops and Venues
White stuff was founded in 1985 by two friends, George Treves and Sean Thomas.
Jack Wills is a mid-range British clothing brand that was established back in 1999 in Salcombe. The first store was opened at 22 Fore Street, which is just a 2 minute walk away from Ringmore House.
Quba Sails Co was born right here in Salcombe from a brilliant idea to repurpose old sail cloth and use it to make clothing, whereas before old sails would just be wasted. Quba has grown to be a global brand since just 1996.
Crew clothing was started in 1993 by Alastair parker-swift. In the early 1990’s Alastair spent his winter months training as a member of the England freestyle ski team, and the summer months running a windsurfing school on Salcombe High Street. During the summer of 1993 he created the original navy and white rugby shirts with the Crew Clothing patch, which he sold from the windsurfing school shop. They sold out within 10 days. The rest is history.
