    “The cottage is suffering from damp.”

    The lower entrance smells musty and the walls are wet making the paint rub off and stain clothing and luggage. There is plaster and paint flaking off the ceiling in the living room, falling on to the sofas. The bathroom toilets are not sturdy. The toilette brush in the lower bathroom was disgusting with faecis sitting in the holder it is a health hazard. The overall cleanliness is the worst we have ever had in a property in Salcombe (visiting for 15 years). It’s so grubby, dust and filth ...

    The lower entrance smells musty and the walls are wet making the paint rub off and stain clothing and luggage. There is plaster and paint flaking off the ceiling in the living room, falling on to the sofas. The bathroom toilets are not sturdy. The toilette brush in the lower bathroom was disgusting with faecis sitting in the holder it is a health hazard. The overall cleanliness is the worst we have ever had in a property in Salcombe (visiting for 15 years). It’s so grubby, dust and filth everywhere (under the double bed was particularly disgusting). The washing machine took 16 hours to drain and did not spin the clothes we tried to wash, we had to manually reset the machine to retrieve our clothes. We are very unhappy with the property.

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.
