  • "We enjoyed our stay in Salcombe."

    Lower Ferlea is ideally placed to walk into town where there are plenty of pubs restaurants and lovely shops plus the Quay and the most stunning views you could ever wish for. The apartment was a nice size. 2 bathrooms and parking was a real asset. The 2nd bedroom is fairly small and has no wardrobe which is fine for a short stay but it was a bit tight for 2 adults. Also had small problem with ants in the property. There was ant killer provided so I guess this must be an ongoing problem. We rectified the problem with water but may need some further investigation. The apartment is equipped with many extras in the kitchen to make it feel homely and comfortable. We had some noise (scrapping of chairs) from the apartment above but as we were out and about a lot this was not a problem for us but useful to know. The apartment has a lovely large balcony which was a real sun trap. The umbrella was a real bonus and provided the shade we needed. We had a lovely stay and would recommend to others.

  • "We have stayed in many properties in Salcombe and this is one of the better ones."

    The location is brilliant and the terrace is great. The property is a good size for a family of four with young children (ours are 13 and 10) and was clean, tidy, comfortable and well maintained. The only downside was that the people staying upstairs (in another property) were very noisy in the early mornings.

    Dear Sally, thank you for your review and we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Really nice place with everything that we could have wanted."

    Great to have the patio and chairs out front with the sun on it until mid afternoon and also to have onsite parking. Short but steepish walk into Salcombe centre and handy to have the park virtually opposite for walking the dog early and late in the day. Only slight downside on the property was the bed was a little too firm for our liking. I would also make a point about having to pick the keys up from the Agent's office on arrival rather than have a secure key case outside the property to access. Despite having set off early (we had a 300 mile drive) traffic delays on the way put us under pressure to get to the office by the final pick up time of 16.00 and when we tried to phone ahead to advise that, firstly we couldn't get a signal and when we did, we were put through to the head office. They were able to advise of the backup arrangements, which shortly afterwards were messaged to me by the local office but perhaps the back up arrangements could have been advised in the directions and pick up instructions sent out beforehand?

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were pleased to read that you had an enjoyable stay. We were only sorry that you had some difficulty with the key arrangements at the beginning of your stay, we have passed on your suggestion for a keysafe to the owner and can only apologise for the inconvenience caused. We hope this did not detract too largely from what is a beautiful week in Salcombe and very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

    Shower trim on shower door upstairs could do with a clean. Lovely time despite the weather. Best wishes

    Might have been nice to have been informed that someone was going into the property though! A rug in the sitting area would have been appreciated - cold floor! Otherwise - lovely cottage - great location and parking. Managed to use the patio furniture too!

  • "Great location, as only a few minutes walk to the main street and estuary."

    Balcony out front was very spacious and a sun trap for most of the day, having parking spaces was great (officially 2 but we only had 1 car, would have been a squeeze to get 2 in). The house itself was well laid out, and had all amenities for a week's holiday. Spotlessly clean. Double bedded room had a relatively small bed in it, and the mattress was a bit too soft for our liking, which was our only negative

  • "Good property."

    Excellent location. Well equipped. Some issue with noise from flat above causing problems for sleeping of very young child in our party.

  • "Great property & location in Salcombe, opposite the park & close to Main Street."

    Modern, spacious & clean decor. Worked very well for our family & dog. Great outdoor space & parking space a bonus. Only slight downside was noise from surrounding property above. However, will look to book again next year. Great service from property company.

  • "Good location."

    Nice apartment. Sleeps 4 but not equipped properly for 4. Needs a few diy jobs but nothing that would spoil your stay. Lovely sun terrace.

  • "Lovely apartment, thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    2 points to note: the bin lid did not work and my brand new car had 3 big White patches on the roof and windscreen of milky white paint presumably caused by the driving rain into the open carport. It has been quite tricky to get off. Staff at C and C clearly were aware of the issue, might be worth warning future residents.

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.
