10 Customer Review(s)

  • Mr Clyne

    “Loved the property - we were a party of 10 and it was ideal.”


    The shower rooms in most bedrooms were new and large, the kitchen was a good space and the outdoor area was excellent. Unfortunately the bbq cylinders left were both empty but after a call to C&C, new ones were brought the next morning (thank you). Regrettably, even with our calls from three days in to the holiday, the rubbish that had been left in the bins which were full were never emptied. We were surprised this was not resolved at this bearing in mind the cost of the holiday wasn't cheap. No recycling opportunity which is regrettable but we had seen this from previous comments so took all of ours back home to recycle. The property is 10 min walk to both North Sands and South Sands beaches (and about 20 minute walk back because of the hills). Probably about 30-40 minute walk into the town of Salcombe depending on whether you are a strider or an ambler! Bantham Beach nearby is worth a visit (it is huge and great surfing / body boarding). The coast path is stunning. Also recommend a guided trip on the estuary with Whitestrand Boat Hire (

    - Mr Clyne, August 2020

    Thank you for your recent feedback. Unfortunately, the local council did not collect the refuse due to a clerical error which took a couple of days for them to resolve. We can only apologise for the inconvenience, but this has now been rectified. It is for this reason that we leave additional bins as it seems to be a perennial problem for a couple of weeks a year! We have a weekly commercial collection but unfortunately a recycling service is not offered as part of this collection. Paper and bottles can be recycled at Malborough or at Batson. We’re so glad to hear that you enjoyed the property and we hope to welcome you back soon. - 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.
