“A very comfortable and well equipped cottage and we enjoyed our stay.
The owners have clearly put considerable effort into ensuring that the cottage is a welcoming place to return to. Sky TV, a laptop (& Wi-Fi), a well equipped kitchen, a great shower and a comfortable living room all enhanced our stay. The garden is lovely too with several places to sit and the location is very, very peaceful.
A few logs for the wood burner would have been good and some tools for it such as a poker and tongs would have been even better! We went out and bought logs and kindling before we discovering we couldn't use the wood burner safely because the tools were missing. £20 wasted.
We were not terribly impressed with the cottage preparation either. The keys were not in the specified place when we arrived (in fact they were nowhere to be found) so we had to ring the office who quickly delivered them (the cleaner allegedly didn't know where to put them so took them away with her! Initiative is clearly not her strong point.)
The cottage seems to have been empty for a few weeks prior to our arrival and did not appear to have been recently prepared for us. There were flowers in vases (a welcoming touch) but these had been dead for a long time (rather less welcoming), there was a dead woodlice in the bed (my wife was not thrilled) and the place was very cold on arrival (although it warmed up quickly when we turned the central heating on).
Overall though we very much enjoyed our stay here and the positives.outweighed the negatives.”

“We have had the most wonderful holiday in this delightful cottage.  The garden has proved to be ideal for play with the children.  The location of the cottage is ideal for visiting Salcombe and taking advantage of the local beaches, especially Hope Cove.  We recommend The Hope and Anchor which offers good food and excellent service service.  We have enjoyed delicious cream teas at Avon Mill and Aune Valley both in Loddiswell.  Another popular attraction for us has been Pennywell Farm.  It is worth mentioning that the Co-op at the Texaco Garage (Malborough) has proved to be most useful.”

“Our third visit.  At the start of the week the weather was fretful, i.e 3 days of sea fret, low visibility etc.  However, greatly improved and we’ve had a super time here as we always do.  Looking forward to visit no. 4 next year.”

“We've had a wonderful relaxing break. The cottage is fantastic, we really enjoyed staying here.  Great garden for cartwheels!  Beaches on the doorstep are beautiful and the walk from here to North Sands for coffee at the Winking Prawn was a fun morning despite the sudden showers.  Thank you for providing such a lovely place to stay.”

“An amazing holiday to celebrate my Mum's 70th Birthday.  Fantastic sunshine all week!  We enjoyed crabbing (69 crabs caught).  A super canoe adventure with 'singing paddles'.  Barbecues at Bantham Beach and Thurlestone House was wonderful, thank you.”

Many thanks for a relaxing stay.  The cottage is fantastic – everything we could have needed was here.  The garden is beautiful, very quiet and great for time when you don’t want to go to the effort of driving somewhere.  We look forward to returning soon.”

“So much fun in Salcombe, the Beach House at South Milton was amazing and we made a crabby friend.

Even though it rained a bit it was still amazing - lots of card games, Rattler Cider and cosy meals!  Once the others went, we had Cream Teas at Beautiful Dartmouth Castle and an afternoon in sunshine at Harbour Hotel.

Coming home a day early for a very exciting project!”

“Thank you for a gorgeous time in Salcombe.  Phoebe's first time and she adored it - no. 1 fan of the Devon Cream Tea (they do a great one at Dartmouth Castle and Hope Cove if you ever fancy it)!

We are well and truly  chilled out, The Harbour Spa helped that and their new outside eating area is amazing!  The views are incredible - perfect spot for a coffee / cocktail.

We loved our snuggly night in with the fire roaring, the cottage is so gorgeous, we love it so much!  The garden is looking so pretty and we made the most of team in the sunshine.  It is so so kind of you to have us here - we have been so happy and cosy, the perfect break.  Thank you!”

“Our second year at this beautiful cottage.

The weather has been fantastic for the majority of the week, so we've done a fair amount of touring but also taken the opportunity to enjoy the lovely garden.  Time to relax, read and have a good gin and tonic or 2!

Already looking forward to next year, provisional booking already made!”

“Once again fantastic place to stay, perfect location and comfortable.

I think this is our fifth time.  It's never long enough, that's why we keep coming back year after year.  Counting the days 'til we return.

P.s. Discovered Noss Mayo, newton Ferrers this time.  We also went to Looe but wished we hadn't.”

“Our second four generation holiday at Higher Collaton Cottage.  We stayed last year and this year has been just as enjoyable.

A big thank you to Coast & Country Cottages for the beautiful flowers for our eldest family member who stayed being 101 years old.

The house was pristine!  We enjoyed sunshine everyday.  Our 16 month old little boy had great fun in the stunning gardens.  Many thanks.”

“Another amazing stay in Salcombe!  Gorgeous sunshine made for a great trip (and Milo's first holiday too)!

Visited Salcombe Harbour Hotel for a spa day - so relaxing and the most delicious afternoon tea!  Definitely worth a visit for the chocolate brownies alone!

Dartmouth was beautiful in the sun and Jack very patient with my Granny driving in all the 20mph villages on the way!

Unfortunately we were a couple of weeks too early for the lambs - we would have only had to take one back to London though!

Thank you for letting us use the house - we had the best time, thank you so so much.”

“What a beautiful Devon cottage - you really have made the place a pleasure to stay in.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our friends from Nice, France!  The cottage really is a great example of a "typical" cottage with everything we could have wanted or needed.”
