  • "Our second year in this fabulous property which has everything anyone could need when on holiday."

    2 parking spaces is a real plus point for Salcombe and accessibility to shops/restaurants and the Co-op exceptional. Every bedroom with its own en-suite is also a big positive.

  • "Everything about the property was wonderful."

    Only thing that could have I.proved our stay was to have been able to park both cars in the parking area.

    I m sorry thought there was a problem with that because there is plenty of parking for 2 cars . We only reserve a space behind the fence by the dustbin for ourselves for when we may need it otherwise we are very happy for 2 cars (& occasionally 3) to park there. The property is advertised as having 2 parking spaces. Always best though to back in as makes going out so much easier! Property Owner

  • "No 1 Orchard Cottages is comfortable, stylish and well-equipped."

    It is well-situated being a level walk to the Co-op and all the facilities in Salcombe. What it lacks in a view, though pleasant enough, is compensated by the delightful courtyard. It was a luxury to have three en-suite shower rooms, an upstairs bathroom and a downstairs shower room! Also, the owner kindly left a bottle of bubbly which put us straight into holiday mood and was very helpful over the calor gas - thank you! We would book again next year but there are likely to be too many of us.

  • "Fabulous house, perfect for large families."

    We had a wonderful week in Salcombe staying in this beautiful property. Ideal for larger families with young adult children as there is plenty of space for people to do their own thing as well as coming together. The only slight negative was no kerbside recycling and the lack of ability to self recycle anything other than glass and paper but this is probably a council thing - we didn't see many recycling points in the town either. The house's outside spaces are perfectly positioned to capture the sun - we were lucky with the weather!

    Yes I m afraid the commercial waste contract that we have does not give any options for recycling. There is a bottle bank near end the creek carpark but that is it. But so glad the you liked the actual cottage. Property Owner

  • "We’ve been coming to Salcombe for over 35 years and this property was by far the best we’ve ever stayed in."

    The house was immaculate, spotless, plenty of room and bathrooms for us all, a great patio and terrace area that was a real sun trap. And two parking spaces ( a rarity in salcombe). We had all the amenities that we needed and everything was top quality. Clive left us a lovely bottle of fizzy on our arrival and checked with us a couple of times whilst we were there to ensure we had everything we needed. We will definitely book this house again. It was perfect. Thank you so much

    Great downstairs space, lots of bathrooms, generous sized bath, and everything you need in the kitchen. We were very impressed with the wine fridge too!! Owners were lovely and very accommodating- thank you Clive and Jacky. We will definitely be back xx

  • "Thank you again for a lovely stay in this beautiful house."

    Everything you need and more. We love Salcombe and visit at least 2 or 3 times a year and we think this is one of the best houses. Lovely Owners. Great walks, Batson Creek, North Sands, South Sands, always something new and different to see.

  • "Bathrooms need attention, grouting etc."

    The information pack was useless, we left a brochure on Salcombe in the pack for future holiday makers. WiFi did not work for a couple of days and more instruction on how to use the fireplace remote control would have been helpful.

    I m very sorry you were unhappy with our property. We , unfortunately, were away for a few days while you had issues with the Wi-Fi and remotes for the fires as we are usually around to help with these things. I can’t explain the lack of Wi-Fi but the remotes can be tricky - we will review our instructions. I also presume you mean an information pack regarding Salcombe. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "The owners kindly allowed us to stay with our two dogs and we had a great week at this holiday home."

    The location was fantastic, so close to shops and pubs etc and no slog back uphill after being in town like many other holiday properties in Salcombe. It was so spacious too - bigger than we had realised from the listing pictures. Everything we needed was provided, really well equipped. Can't really fault this property and look forward to coming again hopefully!

    As a group of 4 friends we all thought it was perfect. The owner came and said hello, which we've never had before, andwas a lovely gesture.

  • "The property itself was truly excellent, unfortunately the instructions on how to use the TV/Video were impenetrable, the sitting room table lamps were also something of a conundrum."

    Parking in Salcombe is currently a nightmare, so it was very handy to have our own parking space, but getting a big SUV into it was somewhat testing, reversing was definitely the answer. Somebody came in to change some batteries during our stay, it would have been nice had we be warned in advance, that said it might have been nice had Sykes made some face to face contact at some point during our stay..

    Us owners were away but had been made aware that you were having problems so arranged for batteries to be changed and TV s to be checked to help with your stay. Backing into our parking area is THE best way although agree it does take a couple of manoeuvres but once in usually cars tend not to be needed again for holiday Property Owner

    gas fire in lounge area did not work. both of the ovens dirty and cobwebs on light shades over dining table and skylights in the kitchen.

    Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay. We’re sorry to hear that there were a couple of cleanliness issues upon your arrival and please be assured that these have been passed onto the housekeeping team for their attention going forward.

    Loads of space for everyone, five bathrooms for five people and showers that were wonderfully cleansing and refreshing. A safe garden for our small dog to sniff around and play in topped it all off. A beautiful property, but sadly it has now been priced out of our range or we would have jumped at the chance to book again for next year.

  • "This holiday was fantastic the cottage was everything we expected, Have looked for next year and unfortunately the price doubles therefore it would not be a cottage we would entertain at that price."

    The damp in the upstairs bedroom needs attention and the kitchen equipment and a tumble dryer all needs improving for a charge of over 3k however that is feedback as a customer looking for a repeat booking. For this holiday this year and the price we paid it was great and we were very happy.

    We are so pleased to read you enjoyed your stay at 1 Orchard Cottages however we were concerned to read that the price has doubled for 2021. We have had a look over the pricing and the same week in 2021 is currently around 5% more than 2020's price however, this is changeable depending on the time of year you wish to visit. The owners have let us know they will be inspecting the property and rectifying any issues and replacing any equipment as needed. We hope to see you in Salcombe again soon. Property Owner
