  • "A fantastic place to stay."

    One tiny tiny gripe - it felt a bit invasive having the window cleaner arrive during our stay as he was told to clean both inside and out which could have been a little uncomfortable had we not been out of bed!

  • "Delightful stay in this perfect authentic cottage which is in such a peaceful comfortable location - but so easy to reach Salcombe and The Bakers it’s also a great starting point for our many walks be it Snape or North Sands via Hanger Mill."

    We loved the fittings so in keeping and the painted decor, it was a great size for 4 adults and 3 children without feeling on top on each other. we didn’t use the Den but can imagine on warmer days it would be used a lot. We loved our stay in our ‘Christmas Cottage’ and we’re sad to leave

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were really pleased to read that the property was comfortable and the location was great for what you had planned during your stay. How lovely to spend Christmas by the sea this year!.. We very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

  • "Lovely well equipped cottage and well situated for Salcombe with short but steep slope on part of the walk."

    As other reviewers have stated the cooker takes some getting used to and switches off completely after 10.30pm So beware if you arrive late on your first day and try to cook pizzas as we did. Take something microwaveable instead!

  • "The cottage was great although a bit cobwebby!"

    I placed a bag on top of the wardrobe to make space and when I took it down it was literally covered in dust and fluff. I realise it is an old cottage and accept cobwebs but a quick dust on top of wardrobes not difficult. The bedding was all very nice and fresh feeling. The downside of the kitchen was the cooker I would say. It was quite annoying that it had to be switched on 30 minutes before you could start to cook anything which is no good if you have young children who want to eat soon after you arrive home. Also, because I have arthritis in my hand, I found the doors almost impossible to open. Something to be aware of I think. Lovely view from the cottage windows, the children enjoyed watching the cows moving from field to field. Finally I would like to say I didn’t need so many emails from C &C giving me instructions on how the cottage was to be left, it was quite irritating, remove all bedding, put towels in black bags, make sure dishwasher is emptied, remove all rubbish etc etc. Personally I would always do that but when you are paying a not inconsiderable amount for a weeks stay you do not expect to be told to do the job of the cleaners for them.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are happy to hear that you loved Summer Cottage. The comments in respect of the accommodation are much appreciated, these have been passed on to the owner who will be looking to address the various points mentioned. We can only apologise that you felt we asked too much of you on your departure, please know these are only suggestions to help the cleaners at this busy time. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and hope to welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very well equipped & in particular the beds/ bedding extremely comfortable."

    The downstairs shower room wasn’t clean- hairs in the plug hole from a long while ago stopping it from draining which I dealt with. Whilst we are used to an Aga style oven, those who aren’t would struggle to cook a full meal effectively. Perhaps a separate hob could be installed as well, which most people with Aga’s have. It must have made the kitchen very warm in the hot weather as well. A lovely cottage in a great position.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Summer cottage, however we are disappointed that you were not satisfied with the cleanliness of the property. We work very closely with our cleaners who have been informed of your comments and will rectify these issues. Many thanks for your feedback regarding the Aga, we will pass this onto the owner. We do hope you had an enjoyable stay despite the issues you encountered and we hope we can welcome you back to the are soon. Property Owner

  • "Great property a short walk from Salcombe."

    House had a lovely flow to it with lots of social space. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired however, and we left the house in a much cleaner state than when we found it.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We do apologise that the property was not presented satisfactorily on your arrival. We have discussed and worked with the housekeeper of Summer Cottage to ensure that the cleanliness is improved upon. We do hope despite this, you were able to enjoy your time at the cottage and we look forward to welcoming you back to the area. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    .really appreciated all the personal touches. Every kitchen implement you could think of, including a coffe machine, ...loads of games, videos, and a welcome pack, brilliant! The walk alongside the river into Salcombe is an easy stroll, and very pretty. We go away every February, and have stayed in many lovely cottages, but this was exceptional.

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.
