Salcombe, (not to be confused with Salcombe Regis which is a village near Sidmouth some 40 miles away as the crow flies) is a town in South Devon, close to the mouth of the Kingsbridge Estuary. Lying within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the town's extensive waterfront and naturally sheltered harbour formed by the estuary gave rise to its success as a shipbuilding and sailing port in the past. Today it is a tourist destination especially for pleasure sailing and yachting. There is also still a strong crabbing industry. There are a number of shipwrecks off Salcombe, one is of a Bronze Age ship, one of only three known in Britain, which had French made weapons and jewellery on board, although the first recorded appearance for "Salcombe" is as late as 1244. According to their 2001 census, the population of Salcombe was 1,893.

Where can our Salcombe taxis meet you?
Salcombe is not a big place but if you are a visitor to the town and need a few landmarks, then down by the sea in Clifton Place could be a starter and there are a few seats where you could wait. Otherwise any of the town public houses or restaurants, your holiday address, or of course your home address would present no problem. You can be collected from wherever you wish..... Just call us!
