    Mrs McShane

    “I spoke with your office about black bag rubbish being left and that it was all strewn over the driveway, the feedback was there was nothing really could be done until bin cookection day.”

    Fortunately one of your team was coming to the house to pick up a broken lamp from the previous rental and he saw the rubbish and cleaned it, we was also only left one black bag which he replenished. The bin men never came all the week we was there so our rubbish then became a problem with having to leave it in house so birds would not peck at it, I really think you should have taken the previous bags to your local refuse tip. ...

Also a quick mention where I've had previous holiday lets there have always been basic condiments in the store cupboard. We had no way of a cup of tea or coffee until our big shop arrived, I do not expect 'welcome packs' but I do expect basics such as salt pepper and the like The house was fantastic and spotless. It was a real shame about the rubbish and I felt very sorry for the other property sharing the drive with all the rubbish strewn around

About the location

HOPE COVE

Salcombe 4.6 miles; Kingsbridge 5.1 miles

The picturesque and unspoiled village of Hope Cove lies in the sheltered curve of Bigbury Bay on Devon’s south coast. A choice destination for families, the two beaches offering soft sand and rock pools for sandcastle building and fishing for small crabs. The town remains a fishing village where crabs and lobsters are still landed, however it was once used by smugglers. Many ships have perished around the coast and the wrecks that lie beneath the waves make it a popular spot for divers. Above the beach there are a number of pubs and restaurants. The coastal footpath can be joined from here and leads towards Bigbury-on-sea in one direction and the coastal resort of Salcombe in the other.

Wood burning stove not in use.
