The South Hams, Salcombe and Hope Cove
Still in the South Hams today we visit Start Point with its famous light house, and aim for lunch at a famous pub in East Prawle, The Pig's Nose.
We reach the Kingsbridge estuary via a beautiful downhill stretch and take a ferry across the estuary to Salcombe. There's something a bit unworldly about Salcombe - it's beautiful, completely devoted to sailing, and very well-to-do. But as somebody once asked me "Don't they have any proper shops? What do the locals do if they want a haircut or a pint of milk?" We're visiting, not house-hunting, so enjoy one of the most stunning panoramas of the week.
Tonight we stay at Hope Cove, a delightful, hidden cove with spectacular views across Bigbury Bay to Burgh Island.
