  • "The property is over the Fat Face shop in Fore Street and if you are facing the property, the gated entrance is found down a narrow path to the right of the shop."

    The access codes for both the gate and the key pad were sent by email once we booked the property. There is a small car park approx. 30m further up Fore Street, which for a small charge we parked in just to unload the car and get everything to the property. The long stay car park permit was on the dining table waiting for us and we then moved our car to the long stay Creek car park which is located past the Co-op. The property was lovely, clean, and with a very well equipped kitchen. We cooked all our evening meals there, having bought our vegan supplies for the week with us. The fridge has only a small freezer compartment. We ate lunch on the go and we never had a problem finding vegan options in any shop, cafe or restaurant. The owner kindly supplied new tea towels, a few dishwasher tablets and a 100ml bottle of washing up liquid. All bath towels are supplied but not swimming towels. The beds were very comfortable and the two small bathrooms were great for us. There was a small amount of damp in the main bedroom fireplace and ceiling which I am sure the owner will address, as overall, the property has been well cared for and was nicely decorated. The TV is big and made for a great Eurovision evening. The radio is in one of the wall kitchen cabinets. There is a shelf of videos and books which was a nice touch. We did not use the wood burner as the weather was great, but it's a nice feature. The clothes hanging space was limited but there is plenty of drawers which was just right for the two of us. There is some covered building work approximately 20m behind the property. Although it is visible, it did not bother us as there are lovely blinds and shutters to arrange as you wish for privacy throughout the property. Noise was not in any way a problem, indeed the property was surprisingly quiet considering it is on the main street. For us the position was perfect as it was right in the heart of Salcombe, with the ferries shops, pubs and cafes all on a level walk. (No hard slog up to a rental at the top of the hill at the end of a day for us!) We had a fantastic week exploring some of the South Coast Path which was stunning and beautiful. We would recommend popping into the information centre to pick up the maps of some of the circular walks: Gara Rock, Bolt Head, Snapes Point, Bolt Tail, Thurleston. Don't miss a ferry trip to South Sands to explore Overbeck Gardens; the views are superb. Thank you for a fantastic week. We would not hesitate to recommend this property or to book it again. On one more point. I left a small rucksack at the property when we left, but after a quick call to Coast and Country Cottages, this was returned to our home address within days for a reasonable £30.

  • "Our family had a really lovely stay."

    Comfortably took our family of 6 and our little dogs. We loved the open plan kitchen, lounge, diner. And the log burner made it so cosy and warm. The beds were also very comfortable. It’s ideally located in the centre of town, within a short distance to the pubs and shops. We enjoyed our stay so much we are looking to book again for next year.

  • "We had a lovely time at this property."

    Two real negatives- The heating was obviously controlled remotely. when we turned up the thermostat it hardly got warm (we are guessing the boiler is set very low in the locked cupboard). The evenings were very cold! We felt considering we paid £600 - the owners were being a little 'tight'. We were very aware they were energy efficient with all their gadgets but not recommend this property to anyone for this reason. The tv also was a nightmare!!! You needed a masters in technology to get any sound on! They need to think twice before saving on pennies when taking a substantial premium from their customers.

  • "The leak in the ensuite into fat face meant I had 3 of my 7 days dealing with trades or the fat face manager."

    The main bathroom shower is too small - no one will use it which mean we all used the ensuite - which given the above leak issue compounded the problem. The bunk room skylights need to be cleaned inside and out - they don’t currently work at all - they let in no light. Lots of dvds - no dvd player ? Cupboard door to the dishwasher is starting to fall off. That said it’s a nice little flat in a great location - just needs a little love.

    The Top bunk doesn’t have a railing and is very high. Overall: enjoyed our stay.

  • "A wonderful apartment in a perfect location."

    Well equipped. Our only suggestions would be to provide a few more basic provisions, such as toilet rolls, bin liners, dish cloths etc. Also, the shower cubicle door makes it hard to access. And the washing machine power button needs to be fixed. The wardrobe in the main bedroom could do with being replaced as there is no hanging space. But overall, it’s a great apartment. This was our second visit and are already planning our next visit.

  • "Having seen this flat before as family stayed last year, we were disappointed with how tired it felt."

    The rug in the sitting room was frayed, nothing felt particularly clean and it just felt that overall it needs some love. There was also no way to dry clothes - no airer and we couldn't figure out how to even turn the towel rails on to dry off towels. So had to resort to hanging stuff on chairs which wasn't ideal. Great spot (albeit quite noisy but that's to be expected!), Comfy beds (although the top bunk is terrifying) and beautiful crockery.

    Perfect location for a long weekend in Salcombe. The place was spotless and beautifully appointed. A great space for the family and our little dog. We will be back for sure.

  • "We had some delay enetering property because we weren’t given an access code to the gate."

    This should have been in the envelope. We would also have liked a drying machine/ for the machine to be a washer/dryer. Also there was no head for vacuum cleaner- a mid week sand clean out was difficult to accomplish!
