The Salcombe Apartments Guest Regulations

The Salcombe is one of the area’s most iconic buildings and holiday destinations, welcoming apartment owners and holiday makers for generations. ‘The Salcombe Regulations’ is designed to ensure everyone’s enjoyment and appreciation of this long-established property and the wonderful experience that it brings.

The Salcombe consists of 36 privately owned apartments. This leaflet has been prepared on behalf the owners, based on clauses in the long-leases of the apartments, statutory and regulatory health and safety requirements, resolutions voted for over the years by the owners through the Management Company, requirements of the building's insurers and some local planning and harbour regulations



  1. The apartment has the use of a  designated parking bay numbered (18) which is found on the car park at the same level as the Salcombe Reception.

  2. The car park spaces are not suitable for very large vehicles.

  3. Each bay allows for one car, and there is no extra space for trailers or boats.

  4. You must not park in any other space, other than your own.

  5. The only time that you may temporarily pull into another space is if you are unloading/loading your car.  If doing this, then one person must stay with the vehicle at all times to ensure it can be immediately moved if someone arrives for the space you're in.

  6. Additional cars must not be brought into the car park. Additional cars must use the public car parks around Salcombe.

  7. You must not park in the car park before your check in time.

  8. You must vacate your car park space once you have checked out, or beyond your check out time. Cleaners, linen deliveries, trades people and letting agents need to use the space in the short time between changeovers and arriving early or checking out late can cause issues for these people having nowhere to park.

  9. A parking permit for your apartment/space must be displayed in your car windscreen at all times. This can be found in the apartment lock box near reception.
