Lovely homely seaside cottage with lovely views.
Had a great stay over New Years with friends. Great location, is a bit of a walk to the seafront if not driving on the way back. House is lovely and charming, has everything you can need, even games and dvds. Would recommend to anyone, we loved our time, cosy, comfortable and would 100% be back again. 👍
Many thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed it. Hope to welcome you again soon. Regards Adrian
Glorious week in Devon
Spacious, beautifully decorated cottage overlooking the bay. Lovely welcome pack including local produce much appreciated by all. Well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. No faults no complaints a lovely stay. Thank you
A very relaxing and homely cottage
Really enjoyed our weeks stay at old saltys. The cottage is clean and very well equipped with everything you need. The old saltys soap and shampoo is a really nice touch. The views are amazing and it's only a short walk to shops and the beach. It's perfectly situated to explore north deven and only a short drive into Cornwall. I would highly recommend a meal at the pig on the hill. We would definatly stay here again.
Our one-week spring holiday at Old Salty's in 2018
Our one week stay at Old Salty's, our second visit in two years, allowed us to enjoy a delightful & relaxing break at this superb location.
Located at in an elevated position at Northam, the property affords spectacular views over the vast Westward Ho Beach & the estuary area behind to the east, & to the west a wide seascape towards the Isle of Lundy with its ever changing evening sunset.
The property is clean, well-appointed, well-equipped, & very comfortable, ideal for a family holiday break in beautiful N. Devon.
External decking allows the wonderful views to be enjoyed whilst eating/drinking 'al-fresco' during daytime or evening.
External areas provide more than ample safe car parking space.
The Location of Old Salty's Cottage is ideal for visiting the many local amenities on foot or for exploring further afield the delights of N. Devon by car or public transport.
