The location was stunning, literally on the edge of a cliff (but very safe with lots of fencing!), with views over beautiful beaches from both sides of the house (and from most of the rooms). The interior was beautiful with lots of interesting seaside related features and it was very thoughtfully equipped - both in the kitchen and beyond (lots of maps and walking guides which I always like!). If you come in the summer, there are even bikes and wetsuits on offer! Although we were only there for 3 nights, we made the most of our stay, and did a lovely walk from Pawle Head to Start Point (left cars in both car parks!). Look out for the rare Cirl Buntings at Pawle Head and we also saw 2 seals near Start Point! There are also lots of walking routes from the house - at low tide you can walk westwards along the beach to Beesands. We had a lovely fishy lunch on New Year's Day at the Start Bay Inn - monkfish tails in garlic butter comes highly recommended! Salcombe is a lovely place to explore and don't miss the Winking Prawn café on North Sands Beach - also a great walk from there to Bolt Head with fantastic views. The house was very dog friendly with bowls provided and handy stair gate to prevent any visits upstairs! There was also a small outdoor area with high walls just outside the door so useful for letting the dog out into! And the two beaches within a minute's walk were very popular with Poppy! (especially the beach to the west which was sandy). Would love to visit again soon!

Salcombe is lovely any time of the year and Friday Cottage is perfectly situated in the centre of town. The pictures do not do the property justice; the rooms are bright and tastefully decorated. The house was warm and the wood fire was an extra. The garden is perfect and I imagine in the summer there would be no need to leave....Shopping is on the doorstep, and Friday Cottage being just off the road brings a tranquility that was wonderful. Everything you would need is in the kitchen, there is plenty of hot water for showers and baths(we were 4 adults) and the beds are very comfortable. Linen is provided and the house is easy to keep clean. Highly recommended for a holiday or longer. We hope to profit again renting this house. To be recommended.
