Beautiful thatached cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property. Amazing cottage with all the amenities you would ever need. Cupboards well stocked like home from home. (not that we used them as so many lovely places to eat in the area).

Gorgeous weather and the views from the master bedroom were wonderful. The garden was immaculate. We will be back.

Excellent communication and services from Linda.

Tranquil and idyllic

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful spot. Perfect to recharge the batteries!

Close to salcombe. Park and ride is a must into salcombe. Lots of other places to visit. Not forgetting Dartmoor zooalogical park. Walks from the door. Hope cove near by, good hotel for lunch and lovely views. Or just stay at home in that gorgeous garden, the view is amazing😎

As you say it is in a fantastic location, so close to all the beaches, coastal walks and National Parks. Like you we often stay at home and relax in the garden - just to take in the view! It's a perfect place to unwind...

Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Vale Court is a cosy, homely cottage in an idyllic setting. The cottage has everything you need and more, it's was clean and well equipped. (It's like being at home!)

3 rooms upstairs are all good sizes and the double has a stunning view of the private garden and fields beyond.

Village is scenic and very peaceful and throughly enjoyed the lack of traffic, street lights and bustle of London.

Stunning view at Hope Cove about 8 mins away and Salcombe which is 10 mins away has a South Sands Ferry that takes you across to North sands where you can enjoy a lovely walk back into main street Salcombe.

Had great communication with owner Linda from the beginning of my enquiries until our return home. She is very friendly and professional and it was a pleasure to stay at this property.

I have already spoken with my family about visiting Vale Court again and my children have also asked when will we be going back! Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear that you had such a lovely holiday at Vale Court Cottage and appreciated the views and quiet location in the village. Hope Cove and South Sands are some of the most beautiful spots in the region and our children, when they were smaller, also loved to catch the ferry from South Sands to Salcombe. It is great to hear that Linda, who manages the cottage for us, ensured that you had a pleasurable stay. Thank you for your complimentary review and we look forward to welcoming you back again one day.

Ideally situated for the wonderful National Trust coastal walks and the wild beauty of Dartmoor. There is a choice of several sandy beaches all within easy reach of the cottage, from small coves to wide-open sands - ideal for surfing and kitesurfing. Also close by is a leisure centre, steam railways, horse riding and golf. The historical seaports of Plymouth and Dartmouth are within a 40 minute drive.
