Christmas Lights Switch On 

Is it really Christmas before the lights are switched on in Salcombe?  The seasonal ceremony is definitely one of the highlights in the calendar.  On 4th December they will be turned on in ceremonial style, and before you get there, don’t forget to pop into the Cliff house Christmas Fair as well!

Winter walks and hot chocolate

Of course, nothing beats a day on the beach or strolling along the cliff tops.  As any avid beach fan will tell you, sandcastle building is definitely not just a summer activity.  Woolley hats and scarves at the ready, and don’t forget to pop in to see us at The Winking Prawn or Island Street Bar and Grill afterwards for hot chocolate with plenty of marshmallows and cream!
