Tides Reach, Culture

Tides Reach is a new luxury hotel and spa located within an area of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking the Salcombe Estuary in South Devon.

Owned by Harbour Hotels Ltd, the proposal includes a 44 bedroom hotel, 10 apartments, restaurant, bar, spa and extensive public realm areas surrounding the development.

All ground floor bedrooms open onto their own dedicated terrace facing the estuary, with a further lower floating terrace accessible from the beach.

Time will be invested to alleviate the issue of flooding by accommodating compensatory floodwater storage below ‘floating terraces.’

Extensive landscape will include natural stone paved terraces, a timber walkway to the entrance and a reeded ‘rain garden’ with echoes of Slapton Ley.
