  • "Comfortable apartment in a beautiful, peaceful location, we had a great holiday ."

    3 storey so quite a few stairs! A short walk to the beach, coast path and The Start Bay Inn. Parking is over the road, could be busy in high season as the spaces arent allocated. We appreciated the coffee pods. Thank you

  • "Another great holiday at no 17 At the beach (our 3rd visit)."

    Very comfortable cottage with everything we needed. Perfect location so close to the beach and the coastal path. Lovely and quiet, friendly locals, delicious fish and chips on the beach. We swam 5 days out of 7, took our blow up kayak and had fun ‘trying’ to stand up on a borrowed paddle board! Really dog friendly and Bonnie our Cockapoo loves it as much as we do. It’s our Devon home from home and we’ll definitely be back!

  • "The flat and location are great."

    We have visited At The Beach flats three times now. This time though, parking was really difficult. The car park was over-subscribed with no "reserved" parking and the nearest available parking was half a mile away - at a cost - when we arrived due to the beach being really busy. We had to wait a long while before we could bring the car close enough to unload. We never we able to park in the car park all week.

  • "Codes provided for car park were incorrect."

    Key safe wouldn't open on our arrival. Someone had to be called out which wasn't ideal. One of our party was unable to use the shower cubicle due to the door only opening partway. This needs reviewing. Any larger person, also for example someone well into their pregnancy, would not be able to use the shower. Would recommend changing the door to be fully opened and not just one partition. The accommodation was lovely otherwise, and would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit this area of Devon.

  • "A basic welcome pack to include tea coffee and milk would have been helpful."

    More complete instructions for the dishwasher and washer/drier would have been helpful.

  • "17 at the Beach has everything you could possibly want for a perfect home from home Staycation."

    The only one criticism would be the washer/dryer. Although the manual was there it would be useful if an idiots guide could be put together, as I could not work out how to continue drying my washing once the wash and wear cycle had finished :( and I'm usually good with things like that. Our dog was welcome in the apartment and a nice little touch was the duvet cover with dogs on. It didn't go unnoticed :). The only thing that let our break down was the weather, which was in now way the fault of 17 at the beach. In fact it was a godsend that the accommodation was as perfect as it was, to spend time in. Highly recommended :)

  • "No 17 was just what we needed after lockdown ."

    It is located in a beautiful area, plenty of beach walks , good pubs and cafes . The apartment itself is lovely inside, very comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The weather initially was appalling , wet and very wild but as the week was about recharging our batteries it was great to curl up and read in peace!! When the sun came out, we loved the beach and cliff top walks, all dog friendly as are the pubs and cafes. Would recommend the Billy can for bacon and egg rolls and cream teas, tables outside watching the world go by and the duckery (slapton ley) also the Start Inn for a pint by the beach and delicious fish bar meals, the staff at both were excellent.

  • "A really clean, nicely decorated and comfortable property in an ideal spot in Torcross."

    Easy and direct access to the SW coast path plus a few lovely cafes, sweet shop and bars a minute’s walk away (cake in the Billy Can highly recommended!). The property had everything we needed and was very cosy. Plenty of storage for personal items and some cupboard space in the kitchen for food/ drink. I’d say the only thing missing was a welcome basket (this is one of the few times there hasn’t been one provided) and more information about the local area. All in all, a great stay and would very much recommend.

  • "A fabulous apartment within two mins of the beach and the lovely beachfront cafe's and pub."

    We had a relaxing week exploring the area which has breathtaking views around every headland, and some lovely food in a number of the local pubs. The apartment was really clean, comfortable and warm, a great place to come back to and relax after a busy day. The only thing missing was a beach view as the apartment is around the back of the building, saying that the beach is very easy to access and a great place for Seal spotting in the evening, and as there are no street lights star gazing at night. We will definitely be back. The free and secure car park is an added bonus with a keypad access to lift the barrier, although the walking access gap is a struggle to get through when you are trying to take suitcases and bags of food from the car to the apartment, we opted to pass them under the barrier then walk around to pick them up at the other side.

  • "The allocated parking space was not available - suggest parking bays are numbered to apartment, difficult unloading with a 93 year old."

    The key entry box was very difficult to open. Kitchen was difficult to eat in for more than one person and not really feasible to carry food upstairs, no coffee pods provided and no recycling bag for rubbish. Some of the bulbs in the inset lights in the lounge and the cream lantern table lamp not working. The refuse was piled up in the car park as the commercial bins were full to overflowing. No where to put toiletries in bathroom and shower. Bedrooms were lovely and everywhere clean.

    One negative comment - I have received so many emails from Sykes. I couldn’t block them because they it would have stopped important emails too! This would stop me recommending you to others.

  • "We were disappointed that there was no radio in the property, especially in the kitchen, as we like to listen to the radio at breakfast to catch up with the local weather etc."

    It was not a problem however as we used one of our phones! The apartment was very comfortable and otherwise more than well equipped and proved to be a very good base for lots to do, even with the poor weather!

The unspoiled little village of Slapton lies just inland from the nature reserve at Slapton Ley and the two mile-long beach at Slapton Sands in the heart of the South Hams in South Devon. A picturesque and peaceful village with a two excellent foodie pubs, The Queens Arms. Visitors come from far and wide to observe the wildlife that live in the nature reserve and the beach stretches as far as the village of Torcross and is popular with families being patrolled in summer months by the RNLI. Nearby popular towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe can all be easily reached. A lovely destination for a beach holiday or simply exploring on foot.
