For fantastic summers in Salcombe, the owners of Soar Mill Cove know everything. Having lived there for three generations they're the experts on who's who and what's on so here is a roundup of their favourite family activities to get involved in this summer.

1/9  Bait, line and skuttler

For free, traditional seaside fun let your mob while away an afternoon on Victoria Quay in the pursuit of creatures from the deep. All they need is a bucket, a crab line, a net, some bacon or tasty squid (crabs love ‘em) and a suitable perch in front of the town’s chocolate box houses overlooking the estuary. The deserved reward has to be a trip to Island Street for a big dollop of Salcombe Dairy’s famous ice cream.
