A deceptively spacious and comfortable property sitting proudly above the town with clear and uninterrupted views along the Salcombe estuary. Something of a local landmark in its elevated position, this late 19th Century house has been converted into three apartments in recent years with the main holiday accommodation divided over two floors and offering exclusive access to the large garden. Much of the property has been recently refurbished and it is suited to family groups or perhaps two couples looking for a centrally located house with lovely views and off-road parking.

 

Coast & Country Cottages can not be held responsible for the accuracy of the position of the property shown on the map, as these are powered by Google - if you have any concerns about the location of the property then please call our team on 01548 843773 who will be able to advise you.

LOCATION The property is located towards the lower end of Devon Road with just a 5-7 minutes downhill walk into Salcombe and its array of boutiques, pubs, restaurants and famous waterfront.  The sandy beaches of East Portlemouth and Millbay can be reached quickly and easily via the small passenger ferry that runs to/from the harbour all year round.
VIEWS Stunning views along the Salcombe estuary towards Snapes Point and South Pool Creek and across to East Portlemouth beach, from each of the rooms on the front elevation and the garden/terrace.
ENTRANCE An outer door (unlocked) leads into a glazed porch area with the main entrance door offering access into the property at the first floor level.  A further door from the hallway leads into the accommodation with two bedrooms and shower room on this floor.
SITTING/DINING ROOM On the ground floor, and with panoramic views, is a comfortably furnished sitting room with double sofa, armchairs, chaise longue, coffee table, feature stone fireplace, flat-screen TV, DVD player and DAB radio/MP3 hi-fi.  Glass door leads out to the garden.  The dining area has an ash table seating eight comfortably.
KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM A newly refurbished and extended kitchen has sleek fitted units, four ring gas hob, electric double oven, American fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave and wine cooler.  The room extends out towards a bright and sunny breakfast area with table, four chairs and wonderful views.  A door leads out to the side of the house with access to garden and parking area. 
BEDROOMS Three in total.  On the first floor is a large bedroom with king bed, bedside units, drawers, wardrobe, chairs and estuary views.  Door out to balcony with table and two chairs.  Also at first floor level is a twin bedroom with two single beds, bedside units, fitted wardrobes, drawers and basin.  On the ground floor is a further double bedroom with lovely oak flooring, bedside units, wardrobe, drawers, chairs and doors to rear courtyard.  N.B. All duvets, pillows, bed linen and towels (excluding beach towels) are supplied.
BATHROOMS On the first floor is a newly fitted, tiled family bathroom with bath, rainhead shower (over), w.c., heated towel rail and wash-hand basin.  On the ground floor is a stylishly presented shower room with rainhead shower, w.c . and wash-hand basin, heated towel rail.  
OUTSIDE To the front of the house is an attractive area of tiered garden (over four levels) with some stone terracing and garden furniture.  There is also a balcony at first floor level
PARKING Off-road parking for one medium sized car.
OTHER INFORMATION The house is fully double-glazed and enjoys the benefits of gas-fired central heating and hot water.  Oak flooring or carpet in most rooms. Wireless broadband internet available.  Strictly no smoking or dogs permitted. Due to the nature of the tiered garden, it is suggested that young children are supervised.

“A perfect property apart from the parking. We would rent Edinburgh House regularly but cannot park a family car on the frontage, so unless we have a smaller car with us (VW Golf) we, as a couple, will not use it. There is a solution - move the steps to beside the house, infill the old ones, level and tarmac. Relatively inexpensive. It is a 3 bed family holiday let at which you cannot park a family car, I know this is common in Salcombe, however there is an opportunity here that does not exist elsewhere at a property with a fantastic view!”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Thank you for your review of Edinburgh House.  We were pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay.  We have passed your comments regarding the parking onto the owner.  We hope to welcome you back to Salcombe again soon.


Following on from our recent reply, we would like to let you know that the owners thank you for your excellent suggestion and will be looking into getting this work done over the winter as they appreciate that parking can be an issue during the summer.

“Absolutely fabulous view which is the highlight of this property. Ground floor - which includes living room and kitchen - is well appointed as is the bathroom on the first floor. The upper floor needs attention from a maintenance point of view - somewhat disconcerting to find cracks in the ceilings and covings. The cleaners were still in the property when we arrived at 3.30pm. They apologised and we were happy to wait while they finished off. The entrance lobby was littered with dead flies - not a good first impression and perhaps overlooked in the cleaners haste to leave. Parking (on the drive) is tight and we found ourselves blocked in on occasion by a Transit van belonging to the upstairs flat. These are relatively minor points given the property's nearness to the centre of Salcombe and the superb view which one cannot put a price on.

Note: the agent's directions to the property state that Edinburgh House is grey. It is in fact blue.”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Many thanks for taking the time to leave your review of Edinburgh House in Salcombe.  We were grateful for your feedback in respect of the various issues mentioned.  We were sorry to hear that the entrance lobby did not give a good first impression and was followed up immediately with the cleaners concerned. Work is currently being carried out on the ceiling and covings and will be finished by the end of February 2017.  The driveway has had new tarmac and *no van will be allowed to park at the property without liaison with the guests* Comments edited by Feefo*   We were delighted to hear that these relatively minor points did not detract too much from your stay and that you had an enjoyable holiday taking in the superb views from the accommodation.  We do hope to welcome you back again very soon.

“The good features are the view is even better than it looks on the website, the location of the house is excellent, the rooms are large , the kitchen is well equipped, showers excellent.Internet really good.Excellent amount of games and books to read.
Lovely and warm and quiet. None of us wanted to go home.
The minor points which would put us off going again are - needs a more thorough clean of the cobwebs around fire and bookcases, kitchen cupboard doors and utensils and microwave doors - sticky needs a good clean here. Bed in main bedroom is very narrow just about can classify it as a double bed - really needs a kingsize bed here, seating in the living room is only for 4 people - the sofa is a sofa bed so not very comfortable, the chaise is uncomfortable. Parking is tricky- a small space outside the house is for your car and the tenants upstairs - if you both have tiny cars it can be just about squeezed in, if the tenants have a van..........”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Many thanks for your positive feedback regarding Edinburgh House in Salcombe and please accept our apologies for the delay in replying.  We were delighted to hear how much you loved the amazing views from this popular property but disappointed to learn that the accommodation was not satisfactorily presented prior to your arrival.  Please be rest assured your comments were passed on to the housekeeping team and all issues have now been rectified.   Following on from your feedback in respect of the beds and furniture, we are now pleased to let you know that there is a king-sized bed in the main bedroom.  The owners have also had the sofa cushions replaced to make this furniture more comfortable.  There is seating for 6 people (including the chaise which many guests love the best!) and there are additional small armchairs upstairs which are portable and which tenants are free to move downstairs if they wish. Thank you again for taking the time to leave your review, we do hope to welcome you back to Salcombe very soon.

“Parking extremely poor only able to park a small car comfortably and then it kept getting blocked in . Building noise and bonfire smoke from the adjacent house blighted our holiday. The house has lovely bathrooms and a good kitchen the rest of the house is very dated and and very mix matched odd assortment of furniture . But the views are wonderful and it's easy to walk into salcombe .”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Thank you for your feedback in respect of your recent holiday although I am sorry that your expectations were not met.\n\nIt is very disappointing to read that building work nearby disrupted your holiday, and we will follow this up with the parties concerned.  The work to the neighbouring property has been ongoing for over a year to date and for the most part the builders have been very considerate to the needs of guests next door.  I am very sorry that we were not able to intervene or help more during your stay. \n\nWhilst I am pleased to read your many positive comments in respect of the accommodation, views etc. I am sorry that the felt the house to be 'dated' in parts.  As you may know the majority of the property was extensively refurbished in 2012 and has maintained a VisitEngland 4 Star rating since then.  We will, however, pass on your feedback to the owners and investigate ourselves at the earliest opportunity.\n\nIf you have any further comments please do not hesitate to contact me directly at any time.\n\nRegards\n\nAJ


Following on from this reply, we are able to confirm that all building work at the house next door has now been completed.   We do hope to welcome you back to Edinburgh house very soon.
