Called in whilst on coastal walk as NT members. Lovely hot fresh lunch. The Homity pie is highly recommended and also gluten free with fresh salad. Prompt service and friendly staff.

A wonderful garden and museum. Especially out of season, where if you are lucky you will get a parking space. At this time it is less crowded and you can enjoy the tranquility, views and beauty of the place. A must in October

This is a great place to visit when your in Salcombe. It is a reasonable walk from the town centre but you can always catch the ferry. On a clear day the views are breath taking so it makes it worth the effort.

We visited here on a lovely sunny day and very much enjoyed it. The gardens are pleasant, the view of the sea is awesome and the house and it’s links to the war are very interesting.

Fabulous gardens and views over the estuary. The tea room is excellent - sadly cannot take dogs now as the entrance has been moved forward to main gate. Would have otherwise visited more often as very handy for lunch. Also garden closes really early which...More

Took the ferry from Salcombe and you get the added bonus of the little trip on the sea tractor. A short - but steep - walk up to Overbecks. The gardens are a delight and the tea rooms well laid out with a good choice...More

On a gorgeous sunny September day, Overbecks house, garden and spectacular views were shown to perfection. The house is interesting and not too large, allowing plenty of time to walk through the garden and enjoy the vista. Highly recommend.

We visited in early September and the people ahead of us commented that they had tried to go there the last week of August, but they couldn’t get parked. Parking is limited and tight. The views are probably more limited than when the house was...More
