If your reversing skills are somewhat lacking, it's probably best to avoid visiting Overbecks: the access road is narrow, steep and winding, with sharp bends and very a limited number of passing places. My husband had to reverse for half a mile because a bloke...More
The drive to get here is terrible, with very narrow roads and people walking on them everywhere. We were lucky enough to get a space in the actual car park but they are extremely limited (and cost £6).
We strolled through the gardens themselves, but...More
The route from Salcombe is very narrow, be prepared for oncoming traffic and reversing into passing places. Once there though, the gardens are spectacular with wonderful views across the estuary. The house itself is very small, but has an interesting history.

It is full of unusual plants and...More

Once we got to salcombe we spent more time reversing than going forward.yes the road to Overbecks is horrible. Once there you’ll find very little parking and most people park on the single lane road leading to Overbecks. It has to be said that the...More

We are relatively fit people but do not do much climbing and distance walking , we walked from Salcombe to Overbecks and it was not strenuous. We got the boat back at the bottom of the hill into Salcombe - glorious . Getting to Overbecks really early so that you can park at their car park is the best option if you are concerned .
