  • "Orchard Cottage is a wonderful cottage renovated to an excellent standard in a stunning location."

    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 outdoor terraces are fantastic and a real suntrap, unfortunately the weather wasn't kind enough for us to use the BBQ which was our only disappointment!

    So pleased you enjoyed the cottage and we look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    It is the best holiday home in Salcombe and it will exceed the expectations of anyone staying here. The owners are lovely and couldn't have been more helpful to us during our stay. We will look forward to returning soon.

  • "This was our second visit to 1 Orchard Cottages, and it was lovely that it was decorated for Christmas."

    Everything was perfect, extremely clean, comfortable and cosy in the evenings. We enjoyed having the extra space and the outdoor area was great for the dog. Lovely homely cottage that we will certainly visit again.

  • "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

  • "Television and gas fire in the snug room did not work."

    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. It’s a shame we weren’t made aware of these maintenance issues at the time as we would have been able to assist you; we have attended since your review and found both items to be functional.

  • "Property was great and in a fantastic location."

    A little more attention to cleaning would have given the rating of exceeded expectations. Microwave was not very clean shower had some mould and cobwebs were missed. These are just minor issues but a bit disappointing. Overall a good stay.

  • "We stayed at this accommodation last year and was excellent, this year standards ..."

    We stayed at this accommodation last year and was excellent, this year standards have really dropped, cleanliness very poor, had various issues, that were dealt with when I phoned but should not have happened in the first place, all in all a disappointing second stay and will not be returning to orchard cottage if standards are not improved, as for the price we are charged we would expect better

    Owners visited us twice to check everything was ok and gave us a nice bottle of bubbly to welcome us! We will be back.

  • "The house was immaculately presented, with little touches in every area, even down to the pictures on the walls, that made this the perfect stay."

    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.

  • "The property was excellent."

    The downstairs loo didn’t flush easily and the kitchen knives could do with a sharpen. Apart from those two minor gripes it would be hard to improve. Would certainly book it again.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you loved the property. The matters you have mentioned, we have passed onto the owner, who will sharpen the knives and look into the toilet situation. We do hope we can welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "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

  • "I guess it is a little more expensive than other 3 bedroom rentals, but 1 Orchard Cottages was even better than expected."

    Extremely spacious and airy property, well maintained and equipped despite COVID-19 restrictions. Best outdoor space of any Salcombe property we’ve stayed in over 5 years. Island Street can be noisy at night during peak season, but this location is excellent.

    .and I must say this is the best house we have stayed in..really missed it when we left..actually it was more spacious than advertised...we always try to choose a house with parking this was advertised for 2 slight discrepancy when we arrived with the office..but there wasnt a problem and we both parked with no problem..would definitely recommend it.

  • "Despite seven days of rain we had an excellent holiday."

    The house is large and well designed. There are five bathrooms all of which are in lovely condition.The beds are very comfortable and storage is very good.Parking in Salcombe is difficult so the fact that two large parking spaces are provided is a great bonus. The outside area in good weather would be another bonus. I would recommend this lovely house to anyone.

  • "The cottage is actually much better with more room and facilities than on the description or photos."

    We were not expecting that. The cleaning could have been better with long term bird droppings on the upstairs french doors and dust where maybe there shouldn’t be but it didn’t detract from an enjoyable experience by all. There was a small mix up with keys not being available which could have been handled better but overall we are very pleased with everything. It is a great house in a fine position.
