  • "Orchard Barn , was quite difficult to find."

    A sign would have been helpful at top of the lane. It was very comfortable and spacious nicely decorated. Very well equipped and warm. A bit more attention to cleaning needed. Lampshade in bedroom full of insects , oven door and some kitchen cupboard door handles a bit sticky and grubby , but overall lovely and would stay again.

    Nice home from home - plenty of space indoors and outdoors - dog friendly and not to far from town (short way up the hill at the end of Batson Creek) - great service as always from the Sykes Salcombe Team

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Orchard Barn pleased to say the enclosed back area was as detailed and enabled us to let our dog out without worrying."

    If I was to offer any criticism it would be that a lot of the cupboards were overcrowded and the glasses and cups etc had hairline cracks in them .As there is a hefty damage indemnity this is a concern.But on the flip side the cottage offered everything we could want .

  • "It's a fantastic location and we had a fabulous 10 days."

    Views from the garden were great and we used that space a lot for reading, eating and relaxing. The cottage is so well equipped in some ways but the beds really let it down. The sheets supplied are too small, mattress topper in second bedroom badly stained, this bed is also ridiculously creaky! In the ensuite room the mattress is bigger than the bed base, meaning it lacks appropriate support and structure. We were all looking forward to sleeping in our own beds again. Some basic instructions for the TV and oven/ microwave would be good, an unsorted drawer full of manuals is of limited use as some related to previous appliances. Finally we would have liked a second set of keys to make it easier when not all the party went out.

  • "Orchard Barn is a home from home, it has everything you need."

    From reading previous reviews it was as expected, a little tired and run down. Our mattress was too big for the bed, the sheets didn't fit. The carpets are a little worn and grubby but the property allows for animals so it's almost expected. A good deep clean wouldn't go a miss. The layout is great with a lovely kitchen and lounge onto a courtyard area. Walk into Salcombe is about 15 / 20 minutes along the beautiful creek, you need to be semi fit to walk back up the hill ! The lady next door is lovely. Would we stay again, yes.

    Having said that we had a lovely holiday in Salcombe and would use sykes cottages again.

    The bad - property dated and grubby. Not sure what the extra COVID cleaning time was used for but it certainly wasn’t cleaning.

  • "A gorgeous barn in an idilic location ."

    Pretty little hamlet on the creek and only a 20minute walk to Salcombe. Beautiful surrounding walks. Ideal if you have a dog. If I had one or two criticisms , maybe the garden could do with attending to and why have all the radiators on in May. Would still recommend this as a place to stay .

  • "I suppose house was as stated, but looking quite tired."

    Can one be picky about rental accommodation if they have a dog. I think so. - I wouldn't expect to see weeds and fungus growing in the lounge. - The drain in the downstairs toilet stank - There were food stains on the bench seat in the kitchen and ring marks on the worktop. - The whole place needed a good clean!

  • "Great space to have."

    Lovely views from the bedrooms and kitchen. And very clean with lots of useful cooking kit in the kitchen to make it home from home. The walk to Salcombe is very, very easy, flat and about a mile - maybe bring scooters for younger family members to make the walk whizz by.

A fabulous holiday home, close to the head of Batson Creek, the property provides comfortable accommodation for a couple or family. Stroll in to town and enjoy crabbing on the quayside with the children, or why not catch the foot passenger ferry across to the sandy beaches of East Portlemouth, for a day soaking up the sunshine and paddling in the clear waters.

With miles of South West Coast Path just waiting to be explored, the area is perfect for walkers too.

Orchard Barn accommodates up to five people in three bedrooms – a master en suite double bedroom, a second double room and a single room.

The property also has a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.

The property has a very comfortably furnished living accommodation as well.

The lounge has two sofas, a flatscreen TV and DVD player, plus an open fire – perfect for cosy evenings in.

There is also a door leading out to the rear courtyard, with patio furniture.

Ideal for al fresco dining in the summer, this is a wonderful spot for soaking up the South Devon sunshine!

The traditional cottage kitchen is a very spacious room with a dining table and chairs.

There is also parking for up to three cars or boats.

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat within easy reach of Salcombe’s amenities, this could be the perfect accommodation.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


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.
