    “Firstly the positives.”

    ...

    Decent location in Salcombe, great views from the top bedroom and 2 parking spaces. All great. However............. Property a little tired and outdated. Plastic coverings on the dining chairs, old throws on sofas. Patio doors broken and unable to open. When we arrived the bins were overflowing outside, no room for any of our refuse and overnight the overspill bags were attacked by seagulls which we had to clear up. The beds had been changed but all of the previous guests dirty laundry was left in the house which was worrying with Covid regs. No front door key so only one key for the back door for 8 people meaning the door had to be left unlocked in the evening if some of us went out. Also not great for fire regs. We called the owner and this was sorted within a few days but it wasn't a great or hygienic start to the holiday. You also have to transfer a £250 cash deposit to the owner. I had no problem with that but once it was paid we received and email saying no towels, tea towels or bathmats provided. Also told that property had to be fully cleaned by ourselves before we left. We own a holiday cottage and would never expect this from our guests. We hoovered and tidied but a part of our deposit was still kept. We were told it wasn't clean enough and accused of breaking ornaments which we hadn't. I think it should be made much clearer on the property description about what is provided and what is expected.

About the property

Perfectly located for touring and enjoying the stunning South Hams, this delightful, spacious detached four bedroom house is set over three floors in an ideal location proudly sitting in a quiet residential area, overlooking the beautiful harbour town of Salcombe.

You will feel at home immediately on entering Marine Cottage which is full of character.

On the ground floor the well-equipped kitchen leads out to the stone patio terrace where you can enjoy alfresco dining in private surroundings amongst palm trees.

A cosy sitting room to relax at the end of the day and a comfortable dining room with ample room for everyone to sit around at dinner completes the ground floor accommodation.

There are four individually furnished bedrooms, two with an en-suite and the second floor room has a sitting area to enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the estuary.

To be able to have a lie in whilst watching the boats and yachts on the water is something that will provide lasting memories.

Located at the most southerly tip of Devon and surrounded by stunning coastal scenery and beautiful beaches it is easy to understand why Salcombe is one of the most sought after and desirable holiday destinations in the UK.

The wonderful outdoor environment offers visitors a host of watersport activities.

For beach lovers the sweeping sands of Thurlestone and the sheltered coves of both South and North Sands offer some of Devon's finest beaches whilst a must do will be to take the ferry from the harbour to East Portlemouth where beautiful beaches look directly back over to Salcombe.

A wonderful house offering excellent accommodation in a delightful location at any time of year.

About the location

SALCOMBE

Kingsbridge 7 miles; Dartmouth 21 miles; Plymouth 24 miles; Paignton 26 miles.

Salcombe is a popular destination for walkers and families looking for a holiday by the sea and was once a major port. 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.
