  • "It would help if it was made clear how difficult a road it is to Bolthead."

    Also the parking space is appalling the camber on the space is so severe that it is very difficult to park . We were very fortunate that the neighbouring property had two spaces and let us use one of theirs. When someone has a large car trying to get in the space the camber causes your car to go on three wheels., which was dangerous and worrying.

  • "Much better to be able to speak to the Salcombe team instead of a call centre somewhere else."

    Appreciated quick response of a plumber to sort out the dishwasher and shower. Generally clean but the carpet was full of sand.

  • "The house is large, bright and well appointed, bathrooms are a very good standard."

    A downside was the night storage heaters which aren’t easy to understand so the house was cold on occasions. There didn’t appear to be any instructions. The allocated parking space for 16 was impossible to use for our car which is low to the ground. It is constructed on such an angle and a dip that we scraped the front of the car. Luckily the apartment complex wasn’t busy so we used someone else’s space and left a note. The house is a brisk 45 minutes walk from Salcombe up and down some very steep hills which was fine for us but not suitable if you’re unable to do this. It’s very well positioned for the lovely coastal path walks, again very hilly. Ps, although mentioned in previous reviews, there is still no bottle opener/corkscrew

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were really pleased to read that the property was comfortable for your stay. We were sorry you had some difficulty with the parking arrangements but were pleased you were able to resolve this during your stay. We do look forward to welcoming you back soon.

  • "As in previous years, a very enjoyable stay."

    We were concerned to find the property had been booked for our usual dates (which are earlier than the ones we booked this year) before we even arrived for our holiday this year.

  • "Nice spacious and clean property."

    The parking lot allocated is on a steep slope and adjacent to a wall. It is physically impossible for a SUV to fit in the space. I just used another space without any problems. Building work is ongoing on a property nearby whilst there is planning application pending for an adjacent propert. With this in mind and the renovation of a hotel at South Sands in 2016 I expect a lot of construction traffic on the narrow roads next year.

  • "Excellent location, comfortable and well-equipped property overlooking South Sands and situated on the South-West Coast Path."

    Just a minor niggle - information on the water hearing and other facilities could have been presented more accessibly to avoid a trawl through files and manuals.

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.
