  • "Third time we have stayed in this beautiful property."

    Spotless, very comfortable, well equipped and well positioned in the town. Stunning views from the balcony.

    Thank you for your very positive feedback. I hope you are happy that we removed all but 2 pots from the balcony. Property Owner

  • "The bed in the on-site room could benefit from a new mattress and some form of extract or opening window in the bathroom"

    Thank you for staying at 5 Island Street Salcombe. The double bed is fairly new and has not had much use. It was a very expensive bed . With regard to the bathroom window we have asked several builders about the feasibility of ventilation. Unfortunately the only way would involve taking up the floor in the living room which they feel would be a huge disruption and disproportionate. It may also not be effective as we have secondary double glazing. We have tried to have the window freed so it can be opened which has so far not been unsuccessful.. I apologise for the inconvenience. Rachel Kershaw Property Owner

  • "Great place to stay."

    Outside shower fantastic for after the beach or a sail. Will book again if the group size suits. Location proved to be surprising quiet as well as super convenient for everything.

  • "Very nice house clean and comfortable."

    Only one thing really could do with a extractor fan or a window you can open in the en suite.

  • "Fantastic accommodation, great facilities."

    Only improvement would be the bed, felt quite worn and slightly uncomfortable

  • "Booking was easy and very efficient."

    I had amended the party numbers to 6 however the beds were just made up for 4 - not a problem, Coast and Country rectified this quickly. House was great except the showers and bathrooms could do with upgrading, the shower pressure was non existent and the baths very uncomfortable for an adult. If the plumbing was being upgraded an outdoor tap would be really handy to wash down the sand from beach kit.

  • "Well equipped cottage in central location."

    Good heating/hot water. Nice to have balcony and view of estury. Would be fine for 2-4 Cramped with 6. Good value.

  • "We had a lovely break in Salcombe."

    We were really impressed with the property and it was v well equipped. The living room with balcony at the top of the house was great-and to have an estuary view was fab, also the proximity of the house to the centre of Salcombe was a real bonus (we had a pram and toddler so that was really beneficial). Salcombe itself is lovely and all of the activities we did were great fun. The beaches we visited were amazing (East Portlemouth being my favourite). My only suggestion to the property owners would be to perhaps put a little table & chair set on the balcony as that space could then be used on a warm day.) To summarise I would recommend both the property & Salcombe-we had a great time and would definitely come back in the future.

  • "Lovely little house right in the hub of Salcombe with great facilities and level access to town."

    Has a great little outdoor space for drying wet gear and a large kitchen (for a small house) for socialising. Lovely little balcony in the roof for checking out the activity on the water in the evening sun with a glass of wine.

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.
