  • "Batson House was stunning and only a 1mile walk to Salcombe."

    It was however not good value for money. On arrival the barbeque was thilthy. The clothes airer was broken. There was a washing line but no usable pegs. The double room door was v tight and someone got stuck inside and was unable to get out. There was a damp smell in the ensuite bathroom, first floor. There was also a broken door handle to bunk bedroom, leaky shower door and broken toilet brush top floor bathroom. This room also had cobwebs and dead insects.There was a lack of small things like dishwasher salt, rinse aid, salt and pepper, cleaning materials, washing up brush.The garden had 3 bins full of rubbish, one of which had been knocked over so there was rubbish all over the car park. I did speak to Coast and Country on arrival and went into the office on the Monday morning. The rubbish was cleared on day 3 but nothing else was fixed until the Thursday night just before we left. We did have an enjoyable holiday but it could have been better.

    We were sorry to hear that Batson House was not presented to it's usual high standard, and that the issues you reported were not dealt with until part way through your stay. We are pleased to advise that everything has now been remedied. We hope that despite these issues you were able to enjoy your holiday and that we will be able to welcome you back to the area again soon. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house, suited our needs perfectly."

    After coming to Salcombe for over 30 years this is the first time we stayed at Batson Creek. We loved it. A couple of minor gripes, one of the ensuite sinks leaked , the 3 dustbins were all full and hadn't been emptied for at least 2 weeks and a broken front window, all reported to sykes first day but nothing was done. However this didnt spoil our holiday. Just suprised as previous years sykes have been very responsive.

  • "This is a very comfortable and well equipped property in easy walking distance to facilities in Salcombe and close to beautiful coastal walks."

    Some people mentioned not enough hot water but, as a group of 7 adults, we had no problems at all. I need to say that, there had apparently been staffing issues and therefore the property had not been properly cleaned. I only mention this, not to deter anyone from booking, but to say that the management company did their very best to rectify the situation, were upfront with us as to why it had happened and came to see us to apologize in person. We would definitely go back.

  • "This is a fabulous property."

    The accommodation and location suited our mixed age group perfectly, with an easy walk into Salcombe. The house was very well equipped. We would have no hesitation in returning and are just sorry that it already looks to be booked for our dates next year.

  • "Beautiful house in a picturesque location we all had a lovely week."

    Kitchen was so well stocked with everything you could need even down to plastic cups, plates etc for the children. Sky box would benefit being nearer the tv as it was awkward to use the remote control.

  • "A beautiful & spacious house with everything we needed for our family holiday."

    One small thing, we needed a cot for our granddaughter & we were told there wasn’t one so we brought our own travel cot. We found one in the cupboard so it would’ve been good to have known about it. The kitchen was very well equipped & the beds were very comfortable. We will definitely book this house again.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to hear that Batson house had everything you needed for your stay and agree it is a beautiful spacious home. Please accept our apologies with regards to the travel cot, it will be there for you when we can welcome you back to Salcombe. Property Owner

  • "Batson House is a beautifully presented holiday home, done up to a very high standard."

    We enjoyed our stay here but felt that it could have been made better by more useful information being available. In the information book with regard to heating it simply says that the house uses oil not gas and to please bear this in mind when using. This means nothing to me as I have never lived in a house that uses oil. We ran out of hot water after 3-4 showers on the first morning. There were 10 of us that would have liked to wash and the house sleeps up to 12. There was nothing to warn us about the fact that hot water was likely to run out and to use hot water sparingly. There were a few other gripes too. It didn't seem to be possible to actually turn on the lovely heated towel rails, again some information about how to do this would have helped. Also, the bottom oven didn't work. The house claims to have WiFi but when you get there it mentions in the information book that the Wifi is unreliable and intermittent. This is an understatement! I hate having to rely on such things but two members of our party needed to be able to complete some work over the weekend and were reliant on the Wifi in order to do so, some prior information about this again would have helped. Lastly, the layout of the house means that noise travels very well, so when younger (or older!) people go to bed before others in the house, it is hard to keep noise to a level that doesn't disturb those on higher levels. Having said all of that, it is a lovely house in a lovely situation and the walk in to Salcombe along the creek is beautiful.

    Thank you for your feedback, the property has an immersion tank which will after several showers need to re fill and warm up. The oven has been been fixed and is working fine. We are sorry that you say that you had problems with the WIFI, this can be intermittent occasionally due to the rural location of the property and area and will depend on amount of people using it also. We hope to welcome you back to Salcombe soon. Property Owner

  • "Excellent and perfect property in all aspects."

    Very happy stay and would book again without hesitation, Only downsides were: - slow running drains on one side of house. By the last day this had badly affected the showers and basins in two bathrooms. Reported to the cleaner. - information at house stated that we had to leave property as we found it, which gave me a lot of housework to get through by 10am, including the showers with blocked drainage. It was left cleaner than we found it. When the cleaner arrived, she suggested that I needn't have done all the cleaning and so I suggested that the house information be corrected to reflect this.

About the location

There are two pretty beaches within a short distance, North Sands and South Sands and further on is the National Trust property Overbeck’s where you can wander through the subtropical gardens. Why not have a more adventurous day and try out the watersports available on the estuary including surfing, kayaking or a more leisurely boat trip? Whilst staying in Salcombe you must take advantage of the locally sourced seafood which is served in many of the restaurants, pubs, cafés and delicatessens. The southern tip of Devon provides some spectacular scenery and picturesque vistas with a number of sandy beaches, lovely villages with thatched cottages and some fantastic opportunities for walking, including the South West Coast path.
