  • "Well pleased with the effort put in to make the house clean and attractive for our stay."

    Reviewed by Andrew5.0Jun 2024

  • "Perfectly placed property, new windows, carpets and doors very good."

    Everywhere appeared very clean and lovely holiday home for 6 people. Only downside was the parking outside, it’s easier to park in the lane opposite. There were however an abundance of ticks on the dog so beware. The house is next to trees and long grass, dog even picked up a tick on the driveway. House itself is excellent, just walk your dogs straight to the beach!

    Pillow protectors might be a nice addition.

  • "Photos sent showing the disgraceful state of the kitchen and bathroom areas especially ."

    We had to clean the floors before we could walk on them ! The state of the place was disgraceful ! The cottage overall was very worn , stains on the mattress covers and the bedding very worn and off colour . Stains on the furniture and the cottage in general felt unclean . There wasn’t a quick turn around as the cottage was vacant for 2 days before we arrived and this was not 1 week’s dirt ! . Reply from Sykes was it is resolved as cleaning was offered after we complained ! ! . I do not feel the case has been resolved. We did complain the day after as the office was closed when we arrived. I did decline the offer of a cleaner for two reasons because the original cleaner had not done a sufficient job and secondly because we were already occupied in the cottage and we had started our holiday and had personal belongings in that cottage at that time and did not wish anybody to come into the cottage whilst we were there and felt uncomfortable as we had complained about the cleaner for them to come back. We should not have to be inconvenience because of the poor condition of the cottage which should not have been in that state to start with . I feel it’s unacceptable to say it’s resolved when we arrived to a cottage that was filthy and dirty and not one weeks dirt and grime either . you can clearly see from the pictures the state of the cottage and I had to clean the floors the evening we arrived as we could not walk on them. I’m absolutely amazed that both yourself and the owner feel it’s acceptable for us to arrive at a cottage in that state and not to offer any kind of compensation . We also had to request the “green “ rubbish bags as none had been left at the property , It's also the only property we have stayed in that does not supply oven gloves, but judging by the responses, we guess health and safety is not a priority. We were however left a list of other cottages in the area, along with all of the relevant key box numbers !

    The location couldn’t be better and the cottage had everything you need. Just one small point the cloakroom is upstairs- there are no downstairs facilities. But all in all we had a marvellous time.

    It has such a beautiful view of NorthSands, we absolutely love it. The cottage was immaculately clean when we arrived with fresh towels in every room and new internal doors fitted since we last stayed. We would highly recommend it.

  • "We had a lovely week at Moult Farm Cottage."

    The property was clean, spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. The location is perfect with the beach being so close by! Lovely walk in to Salcombe as well. Parking at the cottage was a bit tight with another car alongside in one of the other cottages but was manageable. Small price to pay for a great location and no real need for moving the car day to day anyway! We would definitely book again :)

    Clean and welcoming upon arrival. Well equipped kitchen. Spacious bedrooms with good bed linen and towels provided. Minor items for feedback - disappointed that requested highchair for 18 month old was not there - one though was delivered on the Monday. Also, insufficient refuse sacks and instructions/advice as to when collection would be made seemed to vary with information given.

  • "We absolutely loved our time at 3 moult farm cottages."

    It is in a stunning location and the cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Cottage is really nicely decorated and beautiful views from the main bedroom. Only for the owners future my husband is tall we did need to swap to the bed in the back bedroom as the bed was longer and more comfortable. Also the hoover gives off a horrible wet dog smell when used.

  • "We continue to return to this property for the location, which we really love."

    However, as we have commented before, the cottage is in need of some attention both inside and out. We had to contact Coast and Country during our stay to ask for some repairs to be carried out. The bathroom is very basic, the windows need replacing, it would benefit from new garden furniture and the outside of the cottage is very tired. Considering the amount it costs to hire in peak season it really does need some attention to justify the price.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were sorry you felt that the property was tired. We have passed on your comments to the owners who were saddened to read this but hope that it did not detract too largely from what is a beautiful week in Devon.

  • "We have stayed at this cottage several times and its location is really lovely."

    The cottage is generally comfortable and has sufficient equipment. The pillows are really uncomfortable and badly need replacing with better quality. It was disappointing to find that they were the same old ones especially as there have been previous comments over several years.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were pleased to read that the cottage was comfortable and provided you with everything you required during your stay. We have passed on your comments regarding the pillows to the owner and were sorry you felt they needed replacing. We do hope that despite this, you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

  • "A wonderful cottage in the most perfect location for us as a family with young children - a hop, skip & jump over to the beach with the added bonus of a green for games and the Winking Prawn for fabulous food."

    Ideally situated a short walk over to South Sands and a pleasant walk into Salcombe town in the other direction. The cottage itself was extremely well-equipped, especially the kitchen which had everything you could possibly need. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and well-presented. As previous reviews have mentioned, the shower pressure is a little low but this did not pose a huge problem and it's typical for this sort of property. During our stay the fridge/freezer was replaced and Coast & Country made us aware in advance and dealt with the transition with minimal disruption to our day. We very much enjoyed our stay here and felt like we discovered a little gem in 3 Moult Farm. Highly recommended!

Only slight complaint would be regarding cleaning equipment , hoover bag very full when we got there and despite changing the bag it did not work very well. Also as we had some wet weather the cottage could do with a mat inside the door to avoid getting carpets wet. other than these few small moans we had a lovely week and would happily recommend this cottage ,

    The only downside was that the outside seating area was very limited and the table and chairs for a cottage that houses 6 were very basic and too small to be able to eat outside which was a shame as the weather was amazing. Other than that, the cottage was faultless. Thank you.

    The cottage was as described, it could do with a little TLC in places and there is a musty damp smell in certain locations, however this is an old stone built cottage so to be expected I suppose. Kingsbridge is a twenty minute drive and has a great 80’s style cinema. We would defiantly consider going again.

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.
