    ‘Salcombe Maritime Museum, which we visited while staying at nearby East Portlemouth, proved a gem. It’s a small museum made up of two rooms in a building packed with exhibits on a mainly nautical theme including photos and artefacts from shipwrecks. There are also exhibits and tales from the second world war and interactive displays for children, including a dressing-up box. There was a really knowledgeable guide on the front desk and the place is free to enter.’
