  • "The property was ideal for our needs."

    Its very well equipped, everything works, the furniture and beds are comfortable. The TV is a bit small, but, that's just a minor detail. The location is great for touring, although there's not much in the local area at night. There's a brilliant Co op within walking distance, that stocks everything you need.

  • "What a lovely holiday home!"

    I was very impressed with the extra facilities that the house offered, including DVDs, games, books, buckets and spades, beach mats - I really had not expected to have these provided, so thank you for going that extra mile. With that in mind, the only thing I found to be missing (and this is only being very picky) was a washing basket: I'd washed the clothes but had no basket to carry the wet washing outside in. We loved the local area too and hope to return again one day.

  • "The property was just what we wanted."

    It was very well appointed and very comfortable. The only issue we had was that the central heating stopped working and we were unable to contact anyone (or at least get a response) for a day or so. This meant that we were quite chilly in the evenings as it coincided with a downturn in the weather. Once we found a real person at the end of the phone the problem was sorted very quickly. With other Sykes properties we have always had a contact number for the owners but because this was part of Coast & Country Cottages the system was different. Being a Bank Holiday weekend didn't help either. Having said all that - we had a lovely week once we had warmed up. Thank you

  • "The property was better than expected."

    Handy for bus route to both Salcombe and Kingsbridge. Fantastic royres for walking into Salcombe and surrounding area. Well-stocked Co-op within walking distance. We wouldn't hesitate to book again. A few minor niggles but nothing to moan about really.

  • "Very pleasantly surprised, bungalow was much nicer in real life than in the pictures on the website."

    Very clean and well appointed. Very comfortable mattress, good quality towels etc. The road was busy with parked cars but having a personal space was very useful. Will definitely return.

  • "Bungalow was lovely great that we had our own parking space great location for travelling around the only down side (NO INTERNET) and although it was a lovely place to stay in future when booking somewhere I will make sure it’s included nearly every one has a iPhone & tablet."

  • "Great place to stay, comfortable and well equipped."

    I would recommend to others Only thing I would suggest is a shower cutain instead of a screen as bathroom gets soaked!! Also shower head wouldn’t stay up.

  • "I have written to Coast and Country directly."

    In all honesty this property lacks in a lot of ways.

  • "I have found it harder to get hold of the office due to the nationalization of the business."

    This is unfortunate, in my opinion and with this type of business it is always nicer to deal directly with someone locally than a national number.

  • "Clean modern interior, nice kitchen with everything you need, warm and lots of information, odd little beach bungalows but a good base for exploring the area easy to find."

    Lovely views of south Hams hills at the back, small outdoor space but lots of buckets and spades in the shed, so good for children. Bunk beds were fun.

  • "Great value for money, clean and well equipped for our needs."

    Great to have a designated parking space. Will be perfect when both children can use the bunk beds, had to squeeze youngest and cot into master bed, but still worked. Great access to the park, and local shop by foot.

  • "Cumber close was okay."

    I would say no more than a solid okay. In terms of the size, position, facilities and furniture it was as we had expected it to be, so good from that point of view. However to describe it on the website as "immaculate" was going too far. I think you should describe it as "comfortable and well appointed". The kitchen was well appointed in terms of equipment etc - much better than much smart/posher places we have stayed in. However, whilst is was adequately clean; certainly the bathroom and kitchen were clean and the floors were hoovered; there was way too much dust and far too many cobwebs for it to be described as "immaculate". In some places it was a bit tired looking (shower/bath). We used the hoover to get rid of the cobwebs in the corners of the bathroom, kitchen and both bedrooms - it had clearly not had a "proper" clean (corners/under beds etc) for some weeks. It was NOT dirty, just dusty (all the nick nacks on display etc were dusty as was the fireplace) and very cobweb-y. We have stayed in a good many holiday homes and we normally go for 4 or 5 star and use Helpful Holidays and Toad Hall cottages because the cleanliness IS immaculate. They had nothing to offer in Salcombe for this particular week and of course we were booking at very short notice so we decided to try your company. I think if you rent out a house and you want to market it as immaculate then you HAVE to pull out all the furniture, give it all a good old dust everywhere including the nooks and crannies and also do the ceilings for cobwebs ...on a weekly basis! Anyway - the place WAS comfy, good facilities, good supply of information which we found useful - thank you - and good position for the money. We would probably try Coast and Country again, but if the next one is dusty or cobweb-y then we would feel once bitten twice shy.

  • "The property was nice and had everything that we needed."

    My only disappointment was that it wasn't nearly as clean as I would have liked. There was a lot of dirt and hair under the chairs that had the leg rest and this was clearly visible when using them.
