  • "A fantastic location and very convenient to have a parking space."

    The air conditioning was very welcome as we had hot weather and the top floor is very sunny. We also enjoyed using the terrace for evening meals in the shade. Have already rebooked for next year!

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back next year. Thank you for your feedback Property Owner

    The property had everything we needed and was light airy and homely. The parking space was a great bonus. We hope to come back soon

  • "Harbour yard is great location, as central to shops and pubs as is possible."

    Maybe some parts of the property and decor are now getting a bit tired now specifically the bathrooms and condensation in the en suite is a constant issue and we had to dry the towels every day in the communal wash room which is coin operated so bring some £ coins. The single TV system is very complicated but once we understood ( after a couple days ) how to access the live channels it was just fine. Overall a very pleasant stay.,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were really pleased to read that you had a lovely stay and that the property’s location was perfect for what you had planned. We were only sorry you had some trouble with the condensation in the bathroom, we have passed this on to our property services team. We hope that aside from this issue you enjoyed Salcombe and we very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

  • "Really lovely house in a perfect location plus parking, what more could you want?"

    The house was clean and well presented, it's very well equipped and comfortable. It's not particularly spacious but it suited our needs (we are a family of 4, might get a bit a cosy if there are more adults) and has a really lovely feel to it. The only negative we had in the whole week was the washing machine situation, had to wait nearly two days and someone decided to leave their washing in both washers, not ideal when you're trying to washing beach towels! However it hasn't deterred us and we will be booking for next year.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed the property so much that you intend to book a future visit. In terms of the washing machines, please do feel free to unload clean washing and leave it safely on one side. Sometimes people forget they have put a wash on! Response from the owner. Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was lovely and in a great position."

    Only criticism would be the description saying it has a garden. Although there is an outside area it's not really somewhere you could sit and relax.

  • "We have a few minor gripes: 1."

    Key collection & drop-off could be improved. 2. No sockets in one of the bedrooms. 3. Some sockets not working in one of the bedrooms. 4. Some lights not working throughout the property. 5. Two keys to access the property would be useful. 6. NHS Covid QR Code had to be searched for. It should be on the wall when entering the property. It was hidden amongst the pamphlets.

  • "A lovely house in a lovely position."

    So I consider it well worth my time to compile the following list of minor faults: 1) Front Door Sticks 2) Skirting by Front Door falling off 3) Power Point behind Master Bedroom Drawers only half working 4) Three Drawer Stops missing from Master Bedroom Drawers 5) Master Bedroom Wardrobe Doors too Twisted to shut properly 6) Master Bathroom Skylight very dirty 7) Master Bathroom Light Bulb (no spare) 8) Kitchen Cupboard Light Bulb (no spare) 9) Kitchen, Dining Table & Sitting Area Light Bulbs (One spare bulb broken & other spare not dimmable) 10) Fridge Door doesn’t snap shut. (Not completely cured by WD40 on the hinges) 11) No Instructions for very complicated Oven (Good Idea to leave Instructions next to relevant appliance) 12) Glass inside Juliette Balcony was very dirty 13) Back Door very dirty 14) Trees shading Back Terrace need pruning 15) Slate fallen off No2’s roof 16) Sykes very slow to answer the phone. Coast & Country much better!

    We are so pleased you like the property. It is indeed in a fabulous position. Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We really appreciate it, as we can now do our best to rectify any issues raised. We can tell you that the owner has been made aware of your points raised and have noted or addressed them all. We can only apologise that you experienced these matters during your stay and can only hope that you still had a wonderful holiday. We do hope we can welcome you back to Salcombe in the near future.

    Great to have your own parking space too, which was an important reason for picking it. It was very well equipped and very clean.

  • "Location excellent and a very nice house ."

    I will be a little critical of the cleanliness though. Considering it was being cleaned from 10 until 5 I think considering COVID it could have been cleaner . There were a few pieces of dirty cutlery in the drawer . Underneath the microwave was filthy, and the toilets weren’t cleaned as well as should have been . There were also some suspect hairs on the bathroom floors, not those from a head ! I haven’t put that expectations were failed as I feel that the positives outweigh the negatives.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments regarding your recent stay at 5 Harbour Yard. We are sorry to hear that there were a few cleanliness issues upon your arrival; we work very hard with our owners and individual cleaners/caretakers to ensure all properties are clean, tidy and well-presented before the arrival of holiday guests and we are sorry that these checks did not highlight the issues you have raised. We will be feeding your comments back to the housekeeping team to ensure these problems are not repeated. Please bear in mind that the check in time has been pushed back to allow cleaners to focus on sanitising high traffic areas but may have more than one property to clean on a changeover day. It is disappointing that you did not contact us with these cleanliness issues during your stay as we would have most certainly been able to rectify most of this for you immediately. We were glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Salcombe and hope to welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "Another great stay at 5 Harbour Yard, great location and accommodation."

    This stay I did notice that general maintenance needed a little attention. Only small things but it's the little things that count and also demonstrates how the property will be maintained long term. Nearly every room had a little bulb gone Ground floor Bathroom fan needs good clean, given there is no window to open this is an important one to maintain. Ground floor Bath seal has come away from tiles which will allow water behind bath. My only other comment would be that the super king bed on ground floor is very uncomfortable, an investment in a better quality mattress would be warmly welcome. I would definitely stay here again it's a great place and I hope this feedback helps keep it well maintained for lots of future use.

    Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry to hear that there were small maintenance issues that should have been rectified prior to your stay. We have since attended to replace the bulbs and other works are in place during the winter. We have passed the comments on about the mattress to the owners for their consideration. We hope to welcome you back to Salcombe soon. Property Owner

  • "Listing said washing machine, but we could not find it!"

    Also had to go into coast and country on day 2 and ask for one gate code for gate and second set of keys. Both of these should have been given to us on day one. Other than it was great

    Thank you for your feed back. We are grateful for all comments so that we may improve our service and standards to make future holidays more enjoyable. We have added the location of the washing machine and gate key to the communications sent out to our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back to the area soon. Property Owner
