    I expected that to have been fixed but it wasn't so we had to clean our teeth in the bedroom or the kitchen! The settee in the lounge is not that comfortable and if you sit on a chair they are wicker conservatory type so they so become uncomfortable quite quickly. The fitted sheet on the bed was far too small and so came off every night despite our best efforts to prevent this. This just made the bed uncomfortable to sleep in. A small coffee table in the center of the lounge would be useful. The noise outside the bedroom of an evening can be quite loud and go on well into the early hours at the weekend. The owners have put really good double glazed windows in which just about shut out all of this, which is great, unless it's warm and you like a window open when you sleep! As I said though, these are quite minor things easily rectified (apart from the noise) and did not detract from a brilliant week in Salcombe. You'll not find a better located flat with a short stay carpark right outside which is great for unloading and loading.

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.

Located in the centre of town. Due to the location of this property it may be noisy when the town is very busy.

No pets permitted.
