    The kids loved their bedroom with their own little balcony. It was well equipped and had everything we needed. We loved it.

    Some nice touches like decent reading lamps, Roberts radios, Dyson fan. There is some work being carried out next door but didn’t bother us as we were out & about daytime. Would stay again.

  • "Had a lovely stay at 4 blue view, only a couple of issues the door lock on the apartment was difficult to open from the inside not sure if it is the key or the lock, it took us nearly 5 minutes before we could get out one time, although it was fine getting into the apartment."

    We think it would also benefit from a extractor fan to stop the cupboards getting wet. We have stayed at 4 blue view many times over the years and have loved the views, it was nice to see the new kitchen and lounge sofas.

  • "Lovely flat with great views of the estuary."

    Clean, comfortable and well equipped. There was an issue with the lock on the door which I reported, and hopefully that has been addressed. The vertical sash windows in the lounge are very drafty, and probably need the brush pile seals replacing. It was fine in April, but in the winter it would be freezing. These are only little niggles, and I would definitely book the property again.

  • "We had a great week at Blue View."

    It was spotlessly clean, the furniture and fittings were top class, as was the bedding. We slept like logs. The only comment would be that the refuse information was unclear. It said there was one bin day a week but we weren’t sure what day. We put our glass and cardboard into a recycling crate but we weren’t sure if it belonged to the property. The only other criticism would be to say the patio needs some TLC. The chairs were rusty and the flagstones needed a clean. Other than that, it’s a fabulous apartment with some of the best views we’ve ever had from an apartment in Salcombe.

  • "The property would benefit from clear information about refuse collection."

    We arrived to find the bin full and although we left it out all week, it was never emptied. Spoke to the bin men, who declined to empty it on the basis of it being trade waste (rental property). They couldn’t advise who would empty it or when. Thankfully Sykes Cottages arranged a private collection to save me a trip to the tip! A minor point and don’t let it deter you, because this is a lovely, well appointed, clean and comfortable flat, with excellent views. This was our second stay and we throughly enjoyed our week (regardless of the full Bin!)

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you loved the apartment, the views really are spectacular. We can only apologise the bin was full on your arrival but please we were able to empty it once we had heard the pick up had been missed. We do hope that we can welcome you back to Salcombe for your third visit at 4 Blue View. Property Owner

  • "Clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment, with commanding views across the estuary."

    The allocated parking is a bonus (although access is rather tight). A few minor maintenance issues (poor shower flow), but nothing major. During our stay renovation works started on the building next door, which involved heavy machinery. This didn’t spoil our enjoyment as we were out each day, but anyone intending to spend more time in the apartment may experience some noise. Overall, an enjoyable week!

    We have also never been to Devon before, the property was in a great location and has the most fabulous views of the estuary, only a 5 minute walk down into Salcombe with all it has to offer, pubs, cafes and lots of shops. The parking space was definitely an added bonus too. The property was spotless, very comfortable and well appointed. At the time of our stay the washing machine was out of order, which was a little inconvenient but I had received an email and small refund in way of apology prior to our arrival. Would definitely recommend!

  • "We have already recorded our reaction to the lack of a washer/dryer during our recent stay."

    However, to be clear; We booked this property ( again, many previous stays) as it is a great base, We arrived to find the washing machine not working. We spent quite some time googling the error code etc to try to fix it and called the office on the morning of Monday 9th May. We were told that an email had been sent to us. We later found this in our junk Mail. The email was dated 24 April, almost 2 weeks before our arrival. It stated that the washing machine would be “ unavailable” during our stay. We would like to know; What steps were taken in those two working weeks to either; 1. Repair the machine. 2. Replace the machine. It is not, from our perspective acceptable to declare the facility “unavailable”a poor choice of words at best. It was in the flat, it was available but was not working. No one, to our knowledge, visited the flat during our stay so we assume that the next customers will face the same inconvenience. We were looking at rebooking this flat in August for one week prior to our booking with you at 3 Church Hill flats in Salcombe but will not do so unless we are assured that this facility will be “available”. We work hard and look forward to our holidays. We are active people, swimming, running and so on when in Salcombe. It was a huge inconvenience not to have the machine working and the suggestion from the local office that we use the launderette in town was not acceptable. Did they seriously suggest that we walked down to town each morning to wash and they wait to dry our laundry? I would like your assurance that this reply is seen by the owners as we would be interested in their reaction to your handling of the situation. We appreciate that there are some situations when a problem may arise during a rental and a few days may elapse before a full repair or replacement is possible. However, this was not the case and we assume that you have removed the washing machine/ dryer from your website listing for this property so as not to mislead anyone looking to book it now. We would forward to your response. Dr E Fernández

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are very sorry that you were without a washer/dryer for your stay. Due to the specialist nature of the appliance, unfortunately it was not quick to fix or replace. The appliance has been removed from the website until it is fixed, and all parties have been made aware of the situation. We can only apologise again that you were without this amenity. We do hope that you enjoyed your time in Salcombe despite the lack of washer/dryer and we look forward to welcoming you back in August. Property Owner

  • "We had a great time."

    The property is well situated and was clean and tidy, The living room and upstairs bedroom have lovely views, there is off road parking and it is easy to get to the main shopping street. The bedrooms are both nice, although it would be handy if the upstairs bath had a shower. Whilst the information says to bring oven gloves there are now lots of pairs! Do also watch out for the foil used to line the oven blocking the fan - this can considerably increase cooking times!

  • "Overall excellent."

    If I was going to be ultra critical the shower door was faulty, the shower head needs replacing, the radiator in the lounge was too small and the mattress on the double bed was too soft, but these are minor points the property was lovely, great views, fantastic location location and well equipped, would gladly stop there again. Superb.

  • "The flat was spotlessly clean with excellent facilities."

    Couldn’t fault it. The views from the flat are superb and being blessed with excellent weather we particularly liked the upstairs balcony and also the outside patio space. Parking space below was particularly useful. Excellent views have their downside - It is located half way up a steep hill and is a bit of a slog back up from Salcombe.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were pleased to read that the property was clean and that it provided you with the facilities you required during your stay. We very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

  • "Unfortunately when we arrived at 4 Blue View at 3."

    15 pm it was very disappointing to find the apartment had not been cleaned, the beds were not made and there was no sign of the cleaners. After a short period the cleaners turned up and did apologise for not having had time to clean the apartment. The lady said she had had to clean six places already that day. I'm afraid I was not a happy bunny and did say I expected to be able to access a cleaned and covid-19 prevention ready apartment upon arrival. My husband and I agreed to leave the property whilst it was cleaned but knew it would take quite some time to ensure it had been cleaned thoroughly. Whilst waiting in the car we saw both cleaners throw the dirty linen into the boot of their car and drive off! There was no explanation given. We went back to the apartment and I proceeded to clean it myself. I had just finished vacuuming and had started to make the bed when two ladies arrived from the office in Salcombe. They had been told, presumably by the cleaning ladies that "there was a problem" and these staff members from the office had been sent to make the apartment suitable for us "new arrivals". These members of staff were very apologetic and could see I was upset by the circumstances which had arisen. If only we had received a message via telephone or email, letting us know the property was not going to be available at the time stated, we would have delayed our arrival and the whole experience could have been avoided. It was disappointing as we had an especially long journey only to find that during the covid-19 virus, our apartment was not presented as it should have been. 4 Blue View itself is a lovely, well appointed property and we had an enjoyable week stay there.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are very sorry your holiday did not get off to the best start but we are so happy you enjoyed your time and loved the apartment. We can only apologise that you were not made aware of the delayed clean, we totally understand that this is not how you would want to start your holiday. Unfortunately that day we had very limited cleaners due to isolation, which is why members of our office attended 4 Blue View. We realise this was not ideal but feel we did our best under the circumstances. Thank you for your patience and we do hope we can welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

    The views from the apartment are stunning and Salcombe is easily accessible - just a short walk into town. The apartment itself is clean, spacious, very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Absolutely loved the little balcony on the top level and we really appreciated the 2 pairs of binoculars that were available so we could watch the activities on the water. We would love to return! One small piece of feedback - the en-suite bathroom would benefit from a shelf or cabinet on the wall as we had nowhere to place our washbag items.

    Loved the upstairs balcony which is a great breakfast spot. We used the patio area, probably good if you are a family, but much preferred the balcony. A great addition. Easy to walk down to Fore street and all the eateries bit uphill back but that walks off pudding! Great walking from the doorstep and good weather meant no driving just heading off to local beaches. Negatives some of the doors needed a clean where fingers had been but that's a minor thing. Overall

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.
