UPDATE SPRING 2021
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 14th Apr 2021
I reviewed these notes in April 2021. Prices have changed and they have a very complicated scale of charges which vary over the year Winter, Spring and Autumn, High Summer. and the length of stay can influence the rates as well. I've added Tyro notes on Frogmore Creek to the main text.
Up the creek
Written by Tyro Sailor | 27th Mar 2021
It's possible for a shoal-draught boat to get right up to the top of Frogmore Creek where there's a pontoon for boats under 7m (with a walk through a field of cattle to get to the village) and the possibility of anchoring IF you can find room. Same prices as down in the town.
Good pub, The Globe, across the creek from the pontoon via a bridge, with good beer, and folk on Thursday evenings. No other facilities as far as I could see.

No changes except that there are minor changes to the depths over the bar. Prices have gone up slightly

Update March 2014
Written by dononshytalk | 24th Mar 2014
These notes were reviewed in March 2014. There are no significant changes and the harbour charges remain the same for the ninth year running. We have now altered the text to conform with the change of name of the Salcombe Harbour Hotel. Ian Gibson is due to retire early this summer but we have left his welcome message in until we review next year.

The harbour notes for Salcombe were updated by Don T (with the very co-operative help of Ian Gibson the HM) on the 7th February 2013. The arrangements at Salcombe continue to be upgraded; the Whitestrand pontoon has beeen extended and pontoons further up river realigned. There are now showers supplied by the harbour so it is no longer dependent on the hospitality of the Yacht Club. Out of season where possible the pontoons in the vicinity of Whitestrand will be used to offer AB to visitors.
The change of name of the Marine Hotel advised by Mr Bluesky has not been ignored but as the Admiralty still call it the Marine Hotel on their charts we have kept to the same format to avoid (or compound!) confusion

The Marine Hotel mentioned in the coverage above, is now the Salcombe Harbour Hotel:
