  • “Daylight Robbery.”

    I paid over £1300 for this studio flat. It is tired and mean. badly appointed and badly laid out. Everything needs updating. The basin in the bathroom is cracked, the shower rail falls off, the window in the bathroom is cracked. the top of the towel rail is broken. All of the windows were filthy with seagull droppings down them. The place was dusty and filthy, old sweets and wrappers behind the sofa. I doubt it met the stringent cleanliness required for COVID. None of the glasses ...

    I paid over £1300 for this studio flat. It is tired and mean. badly appointed and badly laid out. Everything needs updating. The basin in the bathroom is cracked, the shower rail falls off, the window in the bathroom is cracked. the top of the towel rail is broken. All of the windows were filthy with seagull droppings down them. The place was dusty and filthy, old sweets and wrappers behind the sofa. I doubt it met the stringent cleanliness required for COVID. None of the glasses matched. The wine glasses were sherry glasses. There were only three forks and two teaspoons. The 'hob' is a plug in baby belling. The wifi is very poor. The hoover smells and there are no attachments. There is no where to put your clothes and the owner has stuffed any space available with 'stuff'. Fridge has no ice compartment, so you can't store ice packs for your picnics that are suggested in the details. The front door catch does not work properly, you cannot put it on the latch, so be careful you don't lock yourself out. There is no excuse to charge such a high amount for such a poor level of accommodation. Coast and Country should be embarrassed to put your names to this property and you should be advising your client to update and repair this accommodation. Unfortunately Coast and Country have a monopoly in Salcombe, but I'd avoid using them if I could.

Cradling the Kingsbridge-Salcombe estuary, this delightful town plays host to a number of amenities, including shops, pubs and eateries.

If cooking is off the agenda, you can try the local seafood at one of the fine restaurants, then head to the harbour front for a refreshing drink at one of the local pubs.

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.
