The house provided a good base for Hope Cove, Salcombe, South Milton Sands and surrounding area. We had a comfortable stay and the house was adequately equipped. The garden was a good size with plenty of parking. We enjoyed several meals out including the Old Inn in Malborough which was a very welcoming pub, recently refurbished, good value for money and under new management since August 2017.

This cosy home is in a great location with a short drive to some of Devon's best beaches. It was perfect for our family with a toddler and baby, the house in pristine condition with all the necessary mod cons. The host is really helpful and responds to any queries promptly. Overall the property and location exceeded our expectations and we'll definitely return at some point in the future.

We stayed two nights at the cottage. The cottage is well located for staying in the Salcombe area (car needed). The cottage was immaculate when we arrived and very clean. The cottage had everything we needed. Communication was excellent. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The house is exactly as described and photographed. Spotlessley clean and tidy with every amenity you could need for a family break. Close to the beaches and on a rainy day only 40 minutes from Plymouth. The Co-op round the corner was really useful. The welcome book was perfect and had everything we needed to know in it. Would highly recommend the Winking Prawn cafe and Mill Bay beach if you don't mind very narrow roads. Thank you Raquel for an amazing stay.
