  • Mr Pilcher

    “The property wasn’t very well cleaned by Coast and Country with crisp packets left down the sides of the chairs and a lot of dust in most rooms, the damp in the property wasn’t nice either and made one of our children unwell with their breathing, the mattresses in the loft room were also horrible and the cooking facilities in the property were a little sub standard.”

    The location is great but the property needs some work to bring it up to expected standard, it was grossly overpriced as well but that is a theme with most uk holiday homes at present. Overall quite disappointed with the way the property was prepared for our stay and the main factor to us leaving a day earlier than we were required to, won’t be going back.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were terribly sorry to read that both the presentation and property upon your arrival were unsatisfactory. We have passed on your comments to the housekeeping team and can only apologise for the disruption this has caused to your stay. Please be assured that this is not our usual standard. Should you have contacted our Salcombe team during your stay, we would have arranged for the property to be recleaned. We hope that despite these issues, you were able to enjoy Salcombe, its stunning views and choice of amenities. Property Owner

SALCOMBE

There are two pretty beaches within a short distance, North Sands and South Sands and further on is the National Trust property Overbeck’s where you can wander through the subtropical gardens. Why not have a more adventurous day and try out the watersports available on the estuary including surfing, kayaking or a more leisurely boat trip? Whilst staying in Salcombe you must take advantage of the locally sourced seafood which is served in many of the restaurants, pubs, cafés and delicatessens. The southern tip of Devon provides some spectacular scenery and picturesque vistas with a number of sandy beaches, lovely villages with thatched cottages and some fantastic opportunities for walking, including the South West Coast path.
