Super cosy, clean and clean comfortable.
Ideal location for the best Salcombe and the surrounding area has to offer. Close to great beaches and both Salcombe harbour and Kingsbridge.
You certainly made the most of your few days here: up early, out exploring all day, and late back. So pleased you all enjoyed your stay at Vale Court Cottage and we hope to see you again soon.
A holiday that will be hard to beat, and has converted us to do more UK based holidays in the future...the awesome weather obviously helped.
The cottage, the garden, the views, the people, the beaches, the rivers, the walks, the seafood and Lyme Bay white wine...I'm in complete awe!!. Devon really does have it all and equally so does Vale Court Cottage!
The location of the cottage was perfect for us. A 2 mile footpath links Marlborough village to Salcombe or a short drive easily connects you to Dartmouth, Salcombe and Knightsbridge...with fabulous walks and beaches. Our favorite beach was Bantham, with private car park, soft sands and plenty of surf!
I would highly recommend the cottage, and with our 10 month old in toe...it had everything we needed to make our first holiday together very, very special!
Very sad to leave, but will be back!
Who needs holidays abroad when you can have this?!
Fantastic Stay, we will definitely come back next year.
Thank you much to Val and her husband, we had a fantastic time at Thatched Cottage. The cottage has everything you need, beds comfy, bathroom clean and modern. My dog Cookie enjoyed very much the garden. Very close to Salcombe, Hope Cove, and many other beaches. Also a very convince CO -OP shop for shopping but still close to Kingsbridge, only 10 min you can find Morrison and Tesco.
We will definitely come back next year. Lovely Place.
Lovely clean cottage in a great location
A good base for visiting lots of beautiful beaches and stunning walks. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend.

Lovely location in small village not far from the coast. Lots of nice coastal walks and coves to explore
So pleased you enjoyed your holiday. The weather was lovely whilst you were here - ideal for walking! We very much hope to see you again soon.
What a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is really beautiful, the grounds and the views are amazing and a really relaxing place to stay. We were welcomed by Val and her husband then to walk into find the scones cream and jam which was a real treat. The cottage is so well equipped.I would love to come and stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a break away.
Thank you so much for your excellent review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and it was lovely to meet you all. The weather was good, so you could enjoy sitting in the garden, taking in the view, which is just what we want for all our visitors. I shall certainly pass on your comments about the Devon Cream Tea, and glad you found all you required in the Cottage. Very much hope to see you again.

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.
