  • "Absolutely loved the view & the layout of the house."

    The beds & pillows were really comfortable. Easy peasy check in & facilities were great. The only thing that's letting the property down is a bad damp smell throughout. More noticeable in the kitchen - especially the cupboard in the corner ( below the toaster). The tiny box of dishwasher tablets in the kitchen just turned to mush after a couple of days, where it absorbed the damp. We had a great week though & that was the only thing that put a "dampner" on it!

  • "Waders cottage is great place for the money."

    Key lock makes check in and check out super easy and convenient. Bit of a walk up the hill but spacious place as described. Well equipped kitchen. Very small television, not great for watching sports. WiFi ok. Interiors absolutely fine, perhaps a little dated and some old smell from some of the kitchen cupboards. With all that in mind, great place as a base for a family or group of 4-6 adults. Would stay again. Thank you!

  • "As usual we had a near perfect experience of “Waders“, what a lovely house - so homely and friendly."

    Because the weather was not brilliant we had to do a lot of drying of clothes and I guess an internal drying rack would’ve been helpful in these exceptional circumstances! The towel rail in the bathroom was faulty but the Super-helpful people at Sykes were immediately onto it .. Electrician came round the same day and a new part has been ordered so should be fixed ASAP. Brilliant service thank you

  • "Holiday cottage ‘Waders ‘ was perfect for us as a couple, of course, we had more than enough space- as the cottage sleeps up to six people."

    The view from the rear , looks across the estuary. As Waders is set on a hill above the town, you look out on this , from the two double bedrooms, and dining room, plus from the veranda on the small , but ample back garden. We found the area very peaceful, we even forgot what an aeroplane sounds like , let alone traffic or noisy people ! Salcombe itself, is a pretty little town- a short , albeit, hilly walk from the cottage, with plenty of small shops , pubs & restaurants ( which can be a bit pricey) some lovely little sandy coves , a bit more of a walk away. Surrounding areas, are exactly what you expect from Devon- picturesque, and rural. We will return !

  • "The WiFi was broken and despite being told that it would be fixed it wasn’t."

    It took a number of phone calls during the holiday to try and sort out. Phoning Sykes took ages for someone to pick up each time. We were promised a refund but didn’t hear again from anyone. The cottage was nice but not as clean as others we have rented in Salcombe in many previous years. A number of things were not working properly.

    Valuable after a days sailing. We would use the house again.

  • "The house was lovely and spacious with a super view of the estuary."

    It had a warm and friendly feel and we all felt very at home. The only niggle was that some of the furniture was very dusty and we had to clean before we could put our things out. The Hoover was also rather smelly!

About the location

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.
