“Perfect setting and facilities; well equipped
However very disappointed that there seems to be no encouragement to recycle. Think Coast and Country should do this as part of service
The bath on first floor had not been cleaned
Would have liked couple of sun loungers on terrace
There was no large table on terrace as in pictures
Freezer had not been defrosted for our arrival
Needs larger freezer for size of house”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback regarding your stay at Overcombe, Salcombe. We do encourage recycling, but it is up to each individual guest as South Hams District Council do not offer recycling facilities for holiday homes. However, for those guests who would wish to recycle there are bottle, cardboard and clothing banks opposite the entrance to the boat park (alongside the Creek Car Park). We were disappointed to hear that the property has not been properly cleaned / presented in readiness for your arrival, please be rest assured we have now followed up with the housekeeper and these issues have been addressed. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. Your comments in respect of the sun loungers have been passed on to the owners for their information. Thanks again for taking the time to leave your feedback, we hope you’ll book again with Coast & Country Cottages soon.

“Property subject to 30% price increase not reflected in overall standard. At re book indication was given by agent of '5star' makeover from previous years but reality was only a few new pieces of furniture and beds. Property sold as suitable for special occasions but no dressing mirrors or full length wardrobes in property. Year on year Kitchen utensils are missing (no spatulas). Rusting and unsightly toilet brush holders in many ensuites. Most frustrating is encroachment of shrubs on trees within the property's own boundary disrupting the view. You can barely see Mill Bay or smalls cove from two thirds of the ground floor certainly not a panoramic view and a diminishing return for regulars like us.”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

Many thanks for your feedback in respect of your recent holiday at Overcombe.  Although is is disappointing to read that some items of equipment and furniture did not meet your expectations we can confirm that the property achieved an independent VisitEngland 5 Star grading following a number of changes and improvements over the Winter period.  Clearly, such assessments are reviewed each year and we will forward your comments to the owner to ensure the current grading is maintained or improved if at all possible.  Although there was an increase in the rental charge for this period (to reflect the investment, improvements and higher star rating) we believe the house still represents very good value at this time of year - around £20.00 per person per night - for the standard of accommodation, location and views.  We appreciate that the latter may have been slightly compromised by the growth of trees and shrubs in the property grounds, and will work with the owner ensure the superb views are maintained wherever possible.   In conclusion, we would like to thank you for your continued loyalty and do hope you will choose to return to Salcombe again in the not too distant future.  \n

“Fabulous house. Second time we have stayed here and it was just as wonderful second time around. Hoping to come back next year.
These points are not criticisms, just minor things that would be helpful to address for future guests.
Feedback as follows:-
The house would benefit from a few more coat hangers.
The single room on the first floor has nowhere to hang clothes, not even a hook on the back of the door. Needs some gizmo to hang a jacket.
Kitchen needs a tin opener (one in drawer did not work).
Big green waste bin at top of drive VERY SMELLY. Sometimes the smell drifted down to the house. Quite offensive. Needs cleaning out (we would have done it but no hose).

It is a gorgeous property. Very well knitted out.”

“We booked Overcombe House, as we wanted a large house to celebrate my 50th Birthday with friends and family.
The house completely exceeded my expectations (the photos don't do it justice). Such breath taking views from the terrace, kitchen, lounge and front bedrooms. The garden, although hardly used, was well maintained, with the trees trimmed so as not to hide the views
The owners have recently invested in some tables and chairs for the terrace, so there is plenty of seating (the photos don't show this)
All the rooms in the house were bright and fresh, and was commented by all as to what a delight it was to stay in. Even with 14 of us, we felt there was plenty of room
The kitchen was huge, with a great communal table, plenty of fridge space (for all the Champagne!), large cooker and plenty of work surfaces. The utility room was a bonus with a washing machine, separate tumble dryer and lots of hanging space for coats, wetsuits and beach towels.
This wasn't a holiday house, it became a second home... so sad to leave!
Note to Coast & Country; this is a great house to have on your books. Don't lose it. We'll definitely be booking again”

“We had the most wonderful stay in Overcombe over Christmas. This was our second festive season there and it really was perfect. It is a beautiful spot to see crazy weather from. Elegant and snug in equal measure. I bought a tin opener as a house gift and meant to get a garlic press as well but in every other way the house was fantastically well equipped, even for Christmas dinner for 14 people.

 

Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to the owners. It was a really special Christmas for our family. The first time we stayed in 2013 was because we were rained out of the Tower down the road. Overcombe came to the rescue and how fortunate we were!!!  We will be back again.
