National Trust Property & Gardens
Overbecks is a hidden paradise of subtropical gardens and eclectic collections, just a short walk from the hotel.
Experience the exotic and fascinating hidden treasure perched high on the cliffs above Salcombe. Explore the banana garden, meander through the woodland, or relax beneath the palms. Walk along the coast path and soak up the spectacular panorama across miles of beautiful coastline and estuary.
Continue your journey of discovery into the Edwardian seaside home of eccentric scientist Otto Overbeck. See his amazing invention: the 'rejuvenator'; hear the polyphon, a giant Victorian music box; and be intrigued by the eclectic collections of natural and maritime history.
The perfect day out for families who enjoy exploring, or the keen gardener who wants to be inspired and excited. www.nationaltrust.org.uk/overbecks

Charlotte is a Contemporary Figurative Artist named in the Top Ten Best Selling Living Artists in the U.K by the Fine Art Trade Guild. Her highly acclaimed paintings have been described as dynamic, fluid and passionate. www.charlotteatkinson.com
We also recommend another local National Trust property, East Soar Outdoor Experience, where after a blustery breath taking walk along the South West coastal path you're greeted with home made cakes and hot and cold drinks in the walkers hut.
