We arrived at the cottage late Friday night after a dreadful journey from London. All seemed great until we discovered that there were no towels! Not pleased or impressed. On closer inspection to the small print we did read that "some properties did not supply towels" But it would have been more sensible for this to have been flagged to us when booking was confirmed or made clear in the details. Salcombe is not the best place to buy utility items and we ended up buying ponsy designer towels, which was preferable to sitting for another hour or so in the car and traipsing round Kingsbridge on a Saturday with a large dog. We have rented holiday homes all over the world and have never had towels unavailable. Moving on from the major bug bare. The cottage was delightful and suited us perfectly. Fabulous location and very quiet. Well equipped, apart from the towels. Great bathroom, even though it was in the basement.The garden was perfect, although the shed only contained 1 garden chair. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind enough to us so we did not have to fight over it. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped, and the living room was comfortable. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. If I am going to be picky, the duvet and mattresses were good quality, but the pillows were past there sell by date. Would I go again? Yes.
