    “We had a great stay.”

    Its really conveniently situated for the town. The cottage is beautifully presented. The beds were extremely comfortable and amazing pillows and duvets. Although it says it can accommodate 6, it felt pretty cosy with 4 adults. I think 6 might feel overcrowded. In summer, when you are out all time, it probably doesn't matter. But in November and during a storm...it was compact. It's worth saying too that the double cabin bed won't be to everyone's liking. Takes some gymnastics to get in and out ...

    Its really conveniently situated for the town. The cottage is beautifully presented. The beds were extremely comfortable and amazing pillows and duvets. Although it says it can accommodate 6, it felt pretty cosy with 4 adults. I think 6 might feel overcrowded. In summer, when you are out all time, it probably doesn't matter. But in November and during a storm...it was compact. It's worth saying too that the double cabin bed won't be to everyone's liking. Takes some gymnastics to get in and out and actually to shut the door from inside. But incredibly comfortable to sleep in. It would have been helpful to have more information specific to the actual property esp how to make heating work. It was v cold and not obvious how to get the heating working. I tried the programmer but it didn't seem to come on at times it was set. The 'fireplace' was wonderful. The boiling water on tap was great. Being picky, but some oven gloves would help...using tea towels isnt ideal as there are only 2 provided. Potato masher would be helpful too. A roasting tin or two as well. The dimmer switch in seating area was temperamental- sometimes it was v difficult to turn lights off. We are used to recycling plastics, paper, tins etc, and it was hard to discover how to do that locally. Again, some more property specific info would have been helpful. Shower room v compact but excellent shower with good hot water and great power. In downstairs loo, not sure the lighting cord on the flush is really up to the job! Key pick up and drop off very easy. We didn't get to use garden as weather wasn't conducive but some great views up the top.

The property

In the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the beach town of Salcombe, is the lovely three-bedroom house known as Marroy.

This home features a contemporary interior with white walls and grey accents; outside, there is a nice terrace garden (from Easter 2023) where you can eat outside on warm days.

Before visiting your vacation home, bring along your family or friends and be met by off-road parking for two automobiles.

Enter the bright living room with a comfortable sofa, two chairs, a charming window seat, a fireplace, and a Smart TV to unwind in front of.

The kitchen area has everything you need to make home-cooked meals, including an island where you may dine with others.

Take your favourite bottle of wine from the wine fridge and step outside into the courtyard where you may unwind and catch up on the day's events.

As night falls, head upstairs to one of the three well-appointed double bedrooms, one of which is designed in a high-rise cabin style and is perfect for younger children.

Holiday travellers will love the charming town of Salcombe, which offers stunning coastal vistas, expansive farmland, and sailing options.

Visitors interested in history can check out Salcombe Castle and Salcombe Maritime Museum, then refuel at one of the many outstanding eateries nearby.

Wander over the moorlands of the Dartmoor National Park, which have a wild landscape scattered with ponies, or go to the charming town of Dartmouth.

The market town of Kingsbridge, where you can wander along sandy beaches, explore the past at the Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum, and eat in historic taverns, is also easily accessible.

Marroy has all of this and more in store.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

SALCOMBE

Kingsbridge 7 miles; Dartmouth 21 miles; Plymouth 24 miles; Paignton 26 miles.

Salcombe is a popular destination for walkers and families looking for a holiday by the sea and was once a major port. 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.
