The Bolt is quite possibly the most iconic of Salcombe landmarks and one which, from its position peering down from the cliffs above South Sands, is first seen by sailors entering the Salcombe estuary. Built in the 1950’s as a holiday home for the founder of the Jaguar car company, Sir William Lyons, the property forms the ground floor of a detached house standing in grounds of approximately two acres and with the most impressive views of the estuary and sea beyond. The property is furnished, in part, in ‘retro’ style having changed little since first constructed and has shared parking for two cars. The outside areas are restricted, due to safety factors, to the large paved terrace to the front of the house.
