    “What a beautiful old cottage in a stunning location .”

    The cottage has lots of lovely features and comfortable beds. Such a shame that housekeeping left a lot to be desired. I found dirty clothes in the washing machine and personal belongings of others under the side board . There was lots of hair in the bathroom plug and a very dirty mop for drying the bathroom floor. Toilet brush was revolting and rusting so the floor had lots of rust marks on. The shower curtain was discolored from water damage. . The fridge drain was dirty and the oven ...

    The cottage has lots of lovely features and comfortable beds. Such a shame that housekeeping left a lot to be desired. I found dirty clothes in the washing machine and personal belongings of others under the side board . There was lots of hair in the bathroom plug and a very dirty mop for drying the bathroom floor. Toilet brush was revolting and rusting so the floor had lots of rust marks on. The shower curtain was discolored from water damage. . The fridge drain was dirty and the oven gloves were heavily stained and the dishwasher was out of salts. Such a shame we were greeted with such an array of issues, first impressions really do count. You don't expect to have to highlight so many basic housekeeping tasks to a company who manage holiday accommodation. Please be aware you MUST spend time valuable time of your holiday getting in touch with the agent,. and arranging for issues to be resolved. Don't address the issues yourself and then let the agent know.

About the location

EAST PORTLEMOUTH

South Pool 3 miles; Kingsbridge 8; Salcombe 1 mile (by passenger ferry) 15.8 miles (by car).

East Portlemouth is a tranquil village nestled on the southern edge of the Kingsbridge Estuary in the South Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The small number of properties that make up this settlement are scattered on the hillside and around the cliff, with part of the village once being home to Coastguards employed during the nineteenth century to prevent any smuggling on this section of the South West Coast Path.
Nowadays the village offers a little cafe (open only on dry days) and a number of tiny peaceful beaches - Fisherman's Cove, Smalls Cove and Mill Bay - all of which have been awarded Safe Bathing status.
Further inland situated creekside, is the pretty village of South Pool with its delightful pub, the Millbrook Inn. A haven for food-lovers, this establishment serves a heady combination of fresh English ingredients with traditional Galic cooking.
Just across the estuary is the popular resort of Salcombe with its charming independent boutiques and plentiful selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, which can be reached easily by a five minute pedestrian ferry ride. Further down the coast are the historic town of Dartmouth with its Castle and the bustling city of Plymouth with its museums, aquarium, theatres, shopping and the Barbican.

One well behaved dog permitted.
