  • "Apart from the new dishwasher not arriving all was fine (we don’t have a dishwasher!"

    ) everything was fine, even the weather behaved in week one. Super location thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • "Beautiful property, the view from the balcony is fabulous and location is amazing."

    The only downside is the family who live next door (number 3) clearly don’t like other people or tourists so just try not to engage!

  • "Fantastic location, the views are incredible."

    We have stayed at 2 poundcourt on several occasions and just love it, wouldn't stay anywhere else. However we were a little suprised that lounge patio door still does not lock, it wasn't working last year , that really should have been sorted out by now. not sure where that sits for insurance purposes!

  • "It has location and views."

    It is clean, comfortable and light. It has a well-equipped, modern kitchen, luxurious bathroom, large master bedroom. The starter pack had everything when needed to settle in. The sort of place you can enjoy whatever the British weather throws at you.

  • "A perfect apartment with fantastic views over the Estuary and all the amenities you could possibly need."

    Clean and great size rooms could easily accommodate 5 guests if had sofa bed or guest bed in main bedroom. Only improvement could be to ensure windows and balcony glass are cleaned as these were dirty (seems a bird took a fancy to them) and to warn of the extremely difficult parking for large cars. Did not use garage as no instructions on how to open it and not sure my car would've fitted even if I had figured out how to open it. I would definitely recommend this property and would like to stay again, just wish I could have brought my dog.

  • "Great apartment in an amazing location."

    Both bathrooms were very nice and has everything you could need for a long or short stay. Car parking space is tight but once you have reversed in a few times it is ok. Would recommend and would stay again on the future.

  • "The location of the property is convenient for Salcombe and it’s wonderful shops, pubs and restaurants."

    The views of the estuary and beaches from the apartment are stunning. The facilities are good and well maintained. The main bedroom is spacious and the bathroom adequate. We did eat in one night and the cooking facility was good. The parking is very difficult with a medium car the area in front of the garage is narrow with two pillars in front. We visited in mid January and temperatures outside were sub zero at night and only 5C during the day. Consequently we found the heating of the property inadequate. It was uncomfortable to sit in the lounge after eating out in the local pubs. The radiators worked ok but the draft from the patio doors defeated the heating.

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at 2 Poundstone. The doors are due to be replaced this year. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back to Salcombe again soon. Property Owner

  • "Very enjoyable stay."

    Amazing position. Right Hand Sliding Door needs some attention to the locking mechanism and would not recommend opening until this has been done. Likewise the single bed under the window needs looking at with regard to the slats under the mattress.

  • "The apartment is lovely - clean, comfortable, well-equipped and furnished."

    There are fantastic views across the estuary even on a grey day! Our only concern was the patio door (I have seen this been mentioned in other reviews). It was not securely fitted and did not lock. It was very windy during our stay - the door was rattling, there was a strong draught and we were a bit worried the whole thing would cave in! Other than that our stay there was perfect and we would book again.

  • "Excellent property with fantastic views over the estuary."

    Parking was interesting in a Jaguar XF but with care only one minor w/mirror scratch. The flat was warm and comfortable with all amenities to hand. Would benefit from shelves in the showers(to hang shower gel etc. from)and a splatter mesh for the frying pan. On the whole a great place to holiday, in fact have booked for next September already.

  • "The bedrooms were poorly decorated, the beds very uncomfortable, and the bed linen of very poor quality."

    The carpets in the bedrooms were very badly stained., The shutter in the double bedroom was faulty as was the balcony door in the sitting room. The code for the waste bin garages was incorrect. The property for what we expected was overpriced and badly presented.

  • "Fantastic property with the most AMAZING views from the balcony/lounge and kitchen!"

    Great facilities for our family of 2 adults/2 teenage boys - the 2 ensuites were a bonus. Just a couple of points: please provide cushions for the sun loungers, please check the twin room window as it appears to be locked shut, also, the larger patio doors are very difficult to lock. We will be recommending the property to our friends and family! Thanks

    Thank you Joanne for taking the time to provide feedback. There are now cushions for the sun loungers and repairs made to the door. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic apartment, fantastic view, however the place was furnished pretty poorly, like the world's most expensive student apartment, with the world's loudest bathroom fans."

    Could do with an update for the price they charge. Other family members rented 9 Poundstone which was worlds apart - beautifully decorated and furnished, would highly recommend that over 2 Poundstone. We will be booking somewhere different next year. Coast and Country were great, we had no problems with the apartment, just not the premium experience you'd expect for the price.

  • "Fabulous improvement to both bathrooms."

    Apartment very clean. The welcome pack was a great addition. However for improvements: 1. Please refine instruction regards key safe, “ The keys can be found in a key safe, which is located in the blue/grey Louvre cupboard to the left of the front door, just past the window.” 2. The large patio door ( right hand side near tv) requires URGENT repair or replacement. Last year it was off the runners and difficult to use and this year appeared worse and the handle was falling off. It was impossible to use. Other than that, views to die for and perfect weather.

  • "We love staying at no 2 Poundcourt, so central for everything and the views have to be one of the best in Salcombe."

    Small nags - found parking really difficult, and a little scary!! Should state parking for small, medium cars only. Also we found having the Wifi system in the bedroom was not the best. The blue light radiating from it kept me awake at times. I think as well that the rooms could do with a little TLC, looking a little worn especially the carpet in the main bedroom which was quite stained.

    The flat was bright and airy and we could have had a lovely holiday without setting foot outside the door - the sunshine and views from the balcony were so lovely! The flat is also very convenient for many pubs, shops and gorgeous walks - so all in all a really great holiday location.

  • "There was no DVD as advertised, no big problem, but we mentioned this to the local office."

    It would have been useful to have been advised of this and we would then have brought our own. More detailed instructions how to operate the boiler would be useful and the dishwasher - a couple of buttons on the right were unreadable. These are very minor comments - we are planning when we can go again or who we can recommend the flat to.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were really pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit to Salcombe. We were sorry to read that you had some difficulty with operating the boiler and dishwasher. The instruction manuals can be found in the guest notes, we were sorry you did not come across these. We do hope that despite these inconveniences, you had a lovely holiday here in Salcombe. We very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

  • "The apartment is as we remember it from the last time we stayed there."

    It’s location is ideal for us and in general terms delivered well , but .... there were a number of niggles which proved irritating and should have been dealt with at a pre check stage before we moved in. 1. The plug in one of the bathroom sinks was jammed in and after removing it the plumber was unable to refix this for the whole time we were there 2 The dishwasher after one run broke down and had to be repaired by someone coming round 3 not able to use the oven on the first night and someone had to come round to reset the clock to manual.. not clearly explained in any instructions

    Many thanks for leaving us your feedback. We were sorry to read that you had some issues during your stay. Please be assured that should you have contacted our Salcombe office during your stay, our team would have done everything they could to assist in resolving these issues. We do hope that these inconveniences did not detract from what is a beautiful week in Salcombe. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

    Reviewed by ROY5.0Oct 2020

  • "It is the location and unbeatable views that sell this apartment."

    However the owners have ignored the comments made in their visitors book for the last 3 years, regarding required updates and improvements: The 2 bedrooms need daytime privacy blinds, since other residents can walk right past these windows and see inside. We had to keep the curtains closed throughout our stay, giving a gloomy feel to the apartment. At night the outside security lights shine into both bedrooms, lighting up the rooms! Blackout curtains are required. The second bedroom en-suite bathroom has only a hand shower attachment, from the bath taps. We were a party of 4 adults so ended up all sharing the first bedroom en-suite shower. Both bathrooms need updating, with heated towel rails as there is nowhere to dry towels. The hallway needs a row of coat hooks for outside clothing. The balcony is the main selling point of this apartment, but the furniture on it is old and falling apart. The table wobbles and is unsteady. The apartment sleeps 4 but there are only 2 sun loungers provided. For visitors with 2 cars, it needs to be made clear that only a small car will fit in the garage. Fortunately one of our cars was a mini, but a larger car would not be able to open the drivers’ door. Overall, this apartment is tired and crying out for refurbishment of all rooms and new furniture, if the owners expect repeat bookings.

    This property really exceeded those expectations, the views were truly amazing. Blinds in the bedrooms would be beneficial, for privacy during the day and to help with security lights at night time. Otherwise a great apartment, we’ll definitely use it again.

  • "The flat is large and comfortable with a huge balcony and an amazing view of Salcombe estuary."

    No complaints at all, until it comes to the details. The flat is part of a gated complex, where other guests had a remote fob to work the gates. I was offered a code for the keypad which did not work, and it took 3 days, several telephone calls and two trips to the office to get the correct one. Similarly the automatic garage doors would not work, likewise even the code for the waste bins. A great place in an excellent location, marred at times by irritating things that could so easily have been rectified.
