    “Beautiful cottage, really well fitted out, lots of lovely touches like the personalised bedding and cushions, and the Emma Bridgewater crockery.”

    Beds were really comfortable, the children loved the little bunk room. The only thing, (and I doubt there is anything that can be done about this in a cottage of this age) is that it is impossible to sleep in any of the downstairs bedrooms when someone is in the lounge or the kitchen. The creaking floor boards are the loudest I have ever heard! However it didn't detract from our enjoyment, the cottage is really lovely and in a perfect location.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We were really pleased to read that the cottage was comfortable and presented beautifully for your stay. Thank you for bringing the floorboards to our attention, we have passed this onto the owner. We were sorry for any inconvenience this caused to your stay but were pleased to read that you still enjoyed Devon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of, Property Owner

About the location


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.

For reasons of comfort the cottage is only available for a maximum of eight people with no more than 6 adults.
