Custom House, The
The Custom House is a Salcombe landmark sitting adjacent to the Lifeboat Station in the very heart of the town. Constructed in the mid 19th Century, the property has stunning views over the main Salcombe anchorage towards East Portlemouth and has been refurbished over recent years to a good standard throughout. The house is ideally set up for one or two families but is also the perfect retreat for smaller groups looking to enjoy the spectacular location at quieter times of the year. Mooring available (tides permitting) for a tender up to 8ft.
LOCATION Set on the waters edge just yards from the Lifeboat Station and Fortescue pub, and within easy access of the town's shops, restaurants and amenities. (N.B.
