  • "We thought the property was in an excellent location."

    The property, we felt property was a little tired. Cushions, bedding and towels, could do with being replaced. The shower, had lots of cobwebs and the extractor fan was full of gunk. We could have done with more towel rails in the bathroom to hang more towels, as there was 4 of us using the bathroom.

  • "We have stayed in Salcombe many times and sadly this apartment was the worst place we have stayed in."

    We didn’t have much choice due to Covid and all accommodation being booked up really quickly with very little choice. The plus points: nice location and a car parking space. The not so good points: This apartment needs some serious TLC ! Everything is tired and worn out. Everything that is chrome has gone rusty, bins, bar stools bathroom fittings. Carpets are very old and thread bare in second bedroom, bed linen, cushions, throws all tired and worn out ! Things that don’t work, blind in bedroom broken you have to hold the pull with both hands to get it to go up and down. Bedroom window doesn’t stay open keeps sliding down. Fan in bathroom not working so you have to open the window for condensation - might be due to the fact it is full of dust. Toilet upstairs, have to repeatedly pull chain to get it to flush ! Cleanliness- very poor, dust around plugs , dust on side in bathroom where nic nacs not moved. Kitchen stools dirty around base, bins smeared on top. Sofas not hoovered hairs and crumbs etc. Bathroom - fan not working full of dust, cobwebs hanging from window the window, and upstairs loft windows in bedroom and bathroom absolutely filthy, does not look like they have been cleaned for months, when opened filthy all around sides as well. This could be a lovely apartment by spending a little money on some new furnishings, and fixing the things that are not working. No excuse for cleanliness though ! Especially when check in is now later, so they can do a proper Covid clean ??? Really definitely not happening here.

  • "We had a great stay in Salcombe and Upper Fernlea is in a great position looking out to the estuary with a short walk into Salcombe with the all important parking space."

    The kitchen and bathroom works well with a family. However, the beds and bed linen are very tired and need replacing. And a key safe outside the property is also convenient for guests to use.

  • "I’m afraid that the main bed is uncomfortable, the mattress could do with an upgrade ."

    In general the booking system no longer benefits those wanting to rebook the same week and by releasing all dates constantly, booking has become a free for all. Coast and country was a much better customer service orientated company before selling out to Sykes

  • "We can't fault the property."

    Clean, bright, all the amenities needed and lovely view of the estuary from the front window. The location was good, but like most of Salcombe, there was a bit of a hill to climb to get to it. I would book again, however the only small drawback from us was no garden for the dog, but we found a near by park.

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.
