Driftwood is a stunning detached house, furnished, equipped and presented to the very highest, contemporary standards, and with lovely elevated views of the Salcombe estuary. The two-storey accommodation offers a superb retreat for extended families or possibly 3-4 couples in a mostly quiet area of the town yet within only an 8-10 minute walk of Salcombe's beautiful harbour and waterfront, boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and the small passenger ferry running to unspoilt sandy beaches.

“This was a wonderful house to stay for a family. It had everything you need to enjoy a holiday without having To bring the kitchen sink.
The beds were comfy and the house was warm. Great to have lots of bathrooms and lovely utility room. Great to have 2 living room. Although a tv would be good in the upstairs room. Sofas were comfy and plenty of seating.
My only criticism would be the cookers very small when cooking for 8 people. Also my son 12 wanted to sleep in the top bunk (as it was a bit of a novelty) when he climbed to ladder it did move a lot so we decided it best in the interest of safety for him to use the bottom bunk. This maybe something that should be screwed to the wall!
It was lovey to be so close to Salcombe and maybe if the weather had been better we would’ve walked into town. Maybe another.
Overall a fab holiday”

“Fantastic property let down by the overflowing waste bin outside”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Many thanks for your 5 star rating!  We were delighted to hear that you had a fantastic stay at Driftwood in Salcombe, although it was disappointing to read that there was an issue with a refuse bin.   Our property services team have followed up this issue with South Hams District Council and it would appear that the bin had not been emptied due to a parked car causing an obstruction.  On a positive note, we were pleased that you would stay with us again and very much look forward to welcoming you back to Salcombe in the not too distant future.

“We had an amazing family holiday at Driftwood. The house was beautiful with plenty of room inside and out for six adults, a toddler and a baby. Driftwood is furnished to a very high standard and has lovely homely touches. The only observation we would like to share is that the details of the property say that it is baby friendly but we were concerned there was no stair gate available for the top of the stairs. We definitely recommend this lovely property.”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

“We absolutely loved Driftwood, it was very modern, spotlessly clean, and in a great location. We would definitely give it 10/10 and were very impressed in how well the house was maintained, there was not one thing that we could complain about! It was a perfect home away from home and provided everything that we needed for a fabulous week in Salcombe !”
