  • “This was our second visit to Dory cottage having visited at the same week in 2018 and whilst the cottage is comfortable and ideally situated it is very evident that the cottage would benefit from a thorough deep clean, in particular doors and all the glossed paintwork are badly marked and covered with a large build up of dust, and the inside of the oven is not something I would wish to cook food in as there is a large build up of grease.”

    That said it’s lovely and we have booked for next year but hope that the finer details mentioned are acted upon.

    Many thanks for your feedback, although we were concerned to read that the property was not satisfactorily presented prior to your arrival. As you will appreciate, we work very hard with our owners and housekeepers to ensure high standards of cleanliness are maintained. Your feedback has been passed on to the cleaner concerned and we will request that the particular cleanliness issues you have mention are focused upon. For your future holiday please feel free to report any issues to ourselves upon arrival and we will address them as soon as we can to reduce any impact in you holiday. We are glad that you had an enjoyable holiday in spite of the issues raised and look forward to welcoming you back to Salcombe in the not too distant future. - Sykes owner relations

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.
