    “This apartment is advertised as "sleeps 4" but the tiny living room was hardly big enough for my husband, me & our medium sized dog.”

    It was the smallest living room I have seen. The Venetian blinds did not work properly, they were very old and there were no curtains. The place was soulless & it was not a pleasant experience. We had to move things to sit at the small table as it was crammed in under the window. The room between shower & wall was so narrow that you were in danger of getting burnt on the towel rail. Shower tiny & anyone tall or not thin would have a difficult time. Blind in bedroom had to be continually closed ...

    It was the smallest living room I have seen. The Venetian blinds did not work properly, they were very old and there were no curtains. The place was soulless & it was not a pleasant experience. We had to move things to sit at the small table as it was crammed in under the window. The room between shower & wall was so narrow that you were in danger of getting burnt on the towel rail. Shower tiny & anyone tall or not thin would have a difficult time. Blind in bedroom had to be continually closed due to people walking down the side from the flat above. Wardrobe legs missing on one side and had something attached underneath so it would stand. Bathroom & kitchen smelt musty. Gate fastened with rope. No ambiance, no comfort. Would not recommend.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. The owners of this property are very pro-active and have taken all your points on board. They have changed the blinds in the window to curtains, they have planted bamboo up the stairs so that very soon any view in will be blocked from the outside steps. The wardrobe has been fixed. They have fitted a brand new air filter system to avoid and condensation, eradicating any “musty smell”. We have recently visited the property to admire the work that has been carried out and found it to be cosy yet charming, with lovely views across Salcombe. We can only apologise that you had these issues during your stay but do hope you still had an enjoyable holiday with all that Salcombe has to offer. Property Owner

An external flight of stairs leads down to the lower ground floor accommodation, where you will discover a sitting room with comfy seating, and an extendable dining table in the window. The kitchen boasts a charming set-up, matched accordingly with wood effect counter-tops and sage coloured units, a lovely place to dish up your favourite meals throughout the day. Snuggle up in one of the two bedrooms as the night draws in, both neutrally styled with a glimpse of colour, and low lighting to bring a warm glow to the pretty sleeping arrangement. A family bathroom comprises of a quality suite with a bath and a shower cubicle. There is a useful utility room too with a spare fridge freezer, a great place also to store your beach equipment. Outdoors, the lovely lawn has fantastic views of the rolling Devon hills and Dartmoor in the distance, offering the perfect spot to relax on a warm sunny day. 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.
