  • “Excellent position, poor cleanliness.”

    The location and quality of the cottage is spot on and we really enjoyed the stay. However, after reading a poor review on Sykes website about the cleanliness of the cottage I contacted them and was assured it would be 'cleaned immaculately' before we arrived. I think Sykes must have a different definition of immaculate to me! You can imagine our disappointment when we opened the door to find the floor absolutely filthy. It obviously hadn't been cleaned for weeks, either that or the cleaner ...

    The location and quality of the cottage is spot on and we really enjoyed the stay. However, after reading a poor review on Sykes website about the cleanliness of the cottage I contacted them and was assured it would be 'cleaned immaculately' before we arrived. I think Sykes must have a different definition of immaculate to me! You can imagine our disappointment when we opened the door to find the floor absolutely filthy. It obviously hadn't been cleaned for weeks, either that or the cleaner doesn't know how to clean! So, after a ten hour journey we started cleaning. The floor was washed several times and the rest of the property vacuumed including the sofa. The table and chairs wiped down along with the cupboard shelves. After an hour it was almost perfect. I tried to contact Sykes via email but that has proved impossible! I must say the fixtures and fittings are very good and the view amazing. There is an excellent pub a short walk along the cliff. If you go you won't be disappointed as long as Sykes get their act together!

About the location

HALLSANDS

Start Point 1.5 miles; Beesands 3 miles; East Portlemouth 5.5 miles; Kingsbridge 8 miles.

Hallsands is a small village near Start Point, one of the most southerly points on Devon’s coastline, near Salcombe in the beautiful South Hams area. The sheltered South Hams Peninsula is in 'deepest Devon', a pastoral landscape of flowering hedgerows and ancient sunken lanes, carved into by the richly wooded Avon and Dart Valleys. This quiet fishing village, with its dog-friendly, unspoilt beach, is situated next to the historic ‘old village’ of South Hallsands, just three miles from the popular Beesands Beach which has its own gastro pub and shop. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is decorated with white, pink and ochre thatched cottages, picturesque fishing ports such as Dartmouth, and is renowned for its stunning coastline, popular with yachting enthusiasts. Much of the clifftop land has been acquired by the National Trust, a haven for bird watchers and walkers who take advantage of the South West Coast Path, peppered with perfect picnic spots. Nearby, uncover the beauty of Blackpool Sands and Torcross, a historic site where the Normandy landings were practiced; explore the nature reserve at Slapton Ley, and stroll along Slapton Beach, feeling the soft sand between your toes. Park at East Portlemouth and catch the ferry across to the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe with its renowned estuary, or visit the Start Point Lighthouse, less than a mile away. Hallsands is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of Devon and the South Hams, all year round.
