This beautiful garden offers spectacular views over the Salcombe estuary and surrounding coast. Run on organic principles, the 2.75-hectare (7-acre) garden has an intimate and informal atmosphere and is filled with rare and exotic plants, which flourish due to the sheltered microclimate.

The inventor Otto Overbeck lived here until 1937, and the house contains his collections of curios, natural history and nautical artefacts, as well as his most peculiar invention, the ‘Rejuvenator’.

Overbeck’s is situated 1.5 miles SW of Salcombe, signposted from Malborough and Salcombe.  It is situated within 0.75 miles of the South West Coast Path.

If you are thinking of moving to the Salcombe area, you can save estate agents fees with a private house sale.
