  • "We had a lovely stay at Estuary View."

  • "We had been to this property 2 years ago and really like it."

    Very well equipped and really good location. The only reason I dropped the rating on the maintenance was not a fault of the owner but of the maintenance company. It rained very heavily and the window in the third bedroom leaked quite badly. This was an issue on the landing as well and was the same 2 years ago. Only mentioning it now incase the owner isn’t aware. The bed in the main bedroom was really comfortable. We didn’t like to strip it to find out the make but if the owner can remember we would appreciate knowing.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, and particularly your understanding of our water ingress issues. You are spot on with your assumption, it is a building maintenance problem, which also involves the building insurers. But, the good news is that we have just agreed a resolution with both parties, and the long suffering problems will be rectified this year. We are actually down at Crabshell at the moment, and we agree the bed is absolutely wonderful.....it's like sleeping on a cloud. The bed is a- Sleepeezee, Select Visco 600. Thank you once again for your patience and understanding. Good health & happiness. Tony & Mel Property Owner

  • "We were most impressed with the apartment."

    It was extremely clean and well appointed. It had everything (and more) we needed for a short stay. Extremely convenient for the excellent pub opposite too. We had a couple of small niggles. The underfloor heating was unbearably hot and the thermostats didn’t appear to have any effect on the temperature. We were unable to turn it off. Also it wasn’t possible to open the balcony door to stand and admire the lovely view. It appeared to be stuck. However we enjoyed our stay immensely.

    Thank you for your feedback. Under Floor Heating is something you have to get use to, if you have it in your home and use it everyday, you get to understand how to get the best from it. We have traditional radiators in our main home and it took years to understand how to get the best from the UFH in Estuary View. A simple explanation is, the heating pipes are in the concrete screed, so when it comes on it takes a while to heat up the concrete , and subsequently when the concrete is heated it takes a while for it to cool down. Our method of use is, as soon as you feel the heat in the room building go into the main cupboard in the hall and press the 'Override' button on the control box.........this turns off the heating and as the concrete cools it brings down the temperature in the room. We are looking to replace the thermostats with a more a modern type. The doors and windows are traditional timber, which expands and shrinks with the inclement coastal weather, at the end of April we will get a joiner in to adjust the doors to work better. Thank you once again for your feedback, and for staying at Estuary View. Tony & Mel Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely apartment, well appointed, clean and in a good location."

    We were walking the Coastal Path, so it was important that it was close to the bus station which had good local links. Excellent parking is a real plus.The living room is very warm with underfloor heating we couldn’t control, ideally we would have liked some coat hooks to hang our walking stuff. Overall we would definitely recommend.

    Thank you for your feedback and idea.......we now have coat hooks in the hallway. Thank you. Tony & Mel Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely property in a lovely area which we really enjoyed, a few things need changing for the price being charged."

    1 no welcome pack/ only one front door key 2 a couple of dishwasher/washing tablets left 3 should also be noted only 4 people can fit at the very limited eating space , a table in the hall!

    Thank you for your comments. We used to leave two keys, but one always got lost.....with only one key people are far more careful, and use the key safe when they go out. There should have been 4no dishwasher tabs and 1no washing tab, I will investigate this. Correct the table does only seat 4no people, but we are limited by the size of the space. Totally agree about the welcome pack, from now on there will be one in the apartment when people arrive. Thank you again for your comments. Tony & Mel Property Owner

  • "We’ve just stayed here for seven nights and we would say that this Apartment is absolutely stunning."

    It is equipped and furnished to a very high standard and in a great location. The apartment shares a lift from the underground parking making access to the second floor easy. The Location makes easy flat walking along the creek to Kingsbridge which has good restaurants and a few bars for you to enjoy. This is one of the best apartments in the area and priced correctly. Got to say that pictures on the advert really don’t give you the full picture of how nice the apartment is and its facilities. Definitely going to be returning here.

  • "We had a lovely week in this very well equipped , beautiful apartment , spotlessly clean with tasteful furnishings ."

    Underground parking an added bonus. Balcony view over river was an ever changing delight . Just 2 observations, no welcome pack first time for many years , also no guest book I know people leave reviews on website but that is usually accommodation based a guest book usually has tips on where to eat , what to see etc. No facilities for recycling glass a bit annoying .

  • "Overall a great stay."

    A couple of small issues - to only be provided with 2 dishwasher tablets and 1 spare bin bag for a 4 day stay with 5 people seemed very stingy given what we're paying. The other thing that clearly needs addressing is some problem with the windows - particularly in the child's bedroom where towels were folded up at the base and when I tried to open the window water leaked in over the chest of drawers.

    Hello Rebecca My sincere apologies regarding the bin bags and dishwasher tablets, I am glad you have raised it, we will review this going forward. Again, our apologies regarding the leaking window, last week we had a builder investigate and I am told he has now rectified the problem. Thank you for your feedback, it prompts us to improve.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. As we were two people the apartment was spacious but felt that catering for six people would be pushing it.

  • "Well appointed and comfortable apartment."

    The location is excellent. We had a great stay. A couple of very minor points: 1. The bed in the master bedroom squeaks when you move. 2. The plant on the balcony could do with replacing and then the new one regularly watered.

  • "Lovely flat in a good location with the added bonus of car parking."

    Everything about the flat is of high quality and is accurately described. Be aware of the low headroom for the car park - this prevented us bringing a roof box but this was made clear in the description. Extra charges for a pet - I appreciate this is reasonably standard but it does grate a little.

  • "A lovely apartment with ever changing estuary views, fabulous location."

    This is a very welcoming holiday apartment more a home from home very warm and cosy. It is extremely well equipped with good quality towels and bedding. Immaculately clean with all modern amenities you would require for your holiday. We had a great week here and would have no hesitation in recommending it to our friends and family. One negative was there wasn’t a welcome pack which would have been fabulous after our train and bus journey, having to walk back in to town for milk and other basic supplies after our long journey was a bit of a damp start to our holiday.

    We would just like to thank all renters for there custom this year, wishing you all a Happy 2022...hope we get to see you again soon. A little good news.....Father Christmas delivered a new 43" Smart TV ..... Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic week away."

    The location of Estuary View was better than we had expected and far exceeded the photos shown on the website. Having a parking space was a bonus and the 10 minute walk into town was a lovely stroll along the estuary. The property itself was beautifully equipped and very comfortable. The only negative we had was that it is quite small for 6 people (2 adults, 4 children) as there is only one small main room which houses the kitchen and seating area. The dining/breakfast table was situated in the hallway directly upon entering the front door so it felt a little cramped. However, we spent very little time in the apartment and it didn't stop us from having an amazing holiday. The Crabshell Inn opposite was our go to 'coffee and croissant' stop and the kids loved it's location by the water. They also do amazing pizza!!

    I was disappointed that I had to supply my own toilet paper after spending more than £800 on the property. The reason for this was that the paper supplied weren’t full rolls. My other complaint was that the settee was very tied and not comfortable to sit on.

  • "Everything thank you."

    Staff on telephone in Salcombe were friendly and helpful and followed through. The accommodation was beautiful, the location was just perfect. The standard of cleanliness was perfect and I am extremely fussy. The bed linen was white bright and beautiful. Even better the beds were so so comfortable. WiFi great. Parking space slightly tight to access but just a knack you quickly get hang of. Parking under accommodation felt brightly lit and safe. The home was dog friendly. So so near pub/ restaurant, the Crabshell Inn, across road and perfect for Paddleboarding run by a company called Waterborn. Went out twice. Surreal and utterly wonderful time on the water. Thank you to the owners of this lovely home and to Coast and Country for this lovely short break. Will come back. Very minor points to check on freezer starting to over freeze up made difficult to open the door to access the ice and extractor if there is one in en-suite did not seem to work but shower pressure amazing and also main bathroom bath and hand held shower divine. Kitchen was superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook any meal. I was 100% impressed by this property and found Kingsbridge convenient and enchanting. Keysafe a little tricky but I suspect all keysafes are a little difficult and maybe would be good to have two keys. Thank you.

About the location

KINGSBRIDGE

Salcombe 5 miles; Bantham 5 miles; Dartmouth 12 miles; Totnes 13 miles; Plymouth 20 miles.

The busy little town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of a marine estuary in the attractive South Hams area of South Devon. Kingsbridge is home to a range of lovely independent shops and coffee shops, as well as a 3-screen cinema and an award-winning pub. During the summer season there are estuary excursions by ferry to Salcombe which lies on the banks of the Kingsbridge Estuary, making it one of the prettiest towns in South Devon. Salcombe is famous for its outstanding coastal views, rolling countryside, and is a watersports paradise for kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding and powerboating. It is packed with boutique shops, high street brands and independent producers, restaurants serving freshly caught seafood, and Salcombe Gin and Ice cream! Kingsbridge is perfectly located as a base to enjoy the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast. Visitors can take a walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles in Totnes, an Elizabethan market arcade. Around the South Hams area there are picturesque ports, such as Dartmouth and Salcombe, together with sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands near Stoke Fleming and the two sandy beaches at Thurlestone. There are a host of small attractive villages in South Hams offering interesting pubs, local farm produce shops and pretty rows of cottages, plus further afield the waterfront city of Plymouth is a vibrant centre, housing the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars. Kingsbridge can be easily reached by train to Totnes and then a local bus service which will take you to Kingsbridge town centre.

Best suited to a party of four, but is made available for 6 on the understanding that the bunk bedded room is used by young children only.

All bed linen and towels supplied. You will need to bring your own beach towels.

One well behaved dog permitted.
