We loved Salcombe so much we visited for 2 days in a row. The first day we parked in Shadycombe car park but this only allows 3 hours then you have to leave and is rather busy, so the next day we found Snapes Point car park, where you can park for free, if a National Trust member, or it costs £3 for all day. It is about a 40 minute walk in, the scenery is stunning. The harbour itself is very busy and lots of places to eat, shops and public toilets. Could do with more parking though. Salcome is such a lovely place overlooking the estuary and so much to do.

Visited Salcombe last weekend. Somebody clearly not in their right mind decided to close the park and ride, big deal you may say however there are two very small car parks in Salcombe which after driving around a few times we gave up and headed out. We eventually parked in Overbecks and walked the mile into Salcombe - what a waste of time. Some may find Salcombe quaint and it is in parts - but its also full of people who are rude, obnoxious and don't know how to act in these covid days. Wont be returning.

We had a visit to Salcombe. It's a nice little town and dog friendly. The walk along cliff road to south sands beach was nice. The main issue with Salcombe though is parking. The small car park in the town was closed so pubs and restaurants could use it for seating. The other small car park in the town is small and full. The option was to use the park and ride. However the bus service was suspended, but the parking charge still had to be paid. This meant a 20 minute walk down the steep roads into Salcombe, but the walk back up the steep road is no idea and seriously no good for people with mobility problems. Absolute joke that you have to pay for a service whether you like it or not, but the service doesn't have to be given to you.

On our first trip to Salcombe, we were hoping for a walk around the village and then grab a bite to eat. Sadly, Salcombe was CLOSED!!!!!!! We had read that parking was difficult in the area, so we decided to use the park and ride.....which was also CLOSED!!!! We then travelled to the car parks that we located further down the hill in Salcombe. Two of which were also closed.....We were going round in circles, along with a stream of other cars, so we decided to leave. Salcombe clearly isn’t interested in revenue from visitors. Get your act together Salcombe, you’re not that posh, that the small businesses can afford to turn custom away.

We would not visit again or recommend worth the trouble in the end. Just too hard to park in village and the park and ride was not running their buses (presume due to CV19). We still parked top hill but the walk to and from the harbour is not for the faint hearted. Sea front is nice and some independent shops to mooch but very touristy and expensive.
