|Bolt Head, TQ8 8LL, Salcombe, Devon, UNITED KINGDOM.|
Description: South SandsEnjoying a fabulous location, right before the Salcombe's beautiful South Sands beach, South Sands is situated in one of the town's most emblematic properties. After a chequered history and a number of changes of ownership, this delightful property was rescued by its present owners in 2008. After a painstaking and thorough renovation, it reopened in May of 2010, and now offers boutique accommodation and fine cuisine in a matchless beachfront setting.
As befits a historic property that is located beside the old lifeboat station, in a town that is renowned for its seafaring history, South Sands features nautical themes throughout the hotel. Rooms and suites have been named after sailing vessels popular in this charming seafaring town, and have a New England-style décor. Starting with the little Optimist, and continuing through Enterprises, Yawls, Dragons and right up to the majestic J-Class, rooms vary in size and specification, but all are comfortable and fully equipped with all modern amenities.
South Sands is home to the stunning Beachside Restaurant, where guests and visitors can enjoy contemporary British cuisine prepared with the finest locally sourced produce from the South Devon and West Country land and sea. Large and airy, the restaurant features floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto a delightful decked terrace, with spectacular views of the estuary.
