Came here with my wife and 6 month old. Limited access for pushchairs making it difficult to get around the gardens. Very very poor car parking so get there early. We took the ferry from Salcombe and it was extremely difficult negotiating a pram up...More

Overbecks has a good sub-tropical garden but the house itself is rather disappointing. Lots of stuffed birds on display which seem to be of very limited interest. It is a very long walk here from Salcombe. Best to go on the ferry. No dogs allowed.

Always a lovely spot for tea as a Nat Trust member ! Great walk past beautiful South Sands Beach and the South Sands Hotel - good for Lunch or Dinner.

Small quaint museum. Well tended subtropical garden, stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Helpful staff. DId not sample tearooms but those who did had generous portions of cake that looked good. Gardens may not be terribly accessible for those with limited mobility

National trust property so free to members like us! Takes a while to reach down some very narrow lanes but really worth the effort. The plants in the garden are truly amazing even for non gardeners. Decent cafe and a small shop.
