“Holiday week ”
Reviewed April 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Have just returned from a week in Salcombe staying at the wonderful clifton place cottage for the first time. Prior to going, Mr. Jones, the owner, could not have been more helpful with the booking and delightful complimentary information pack sent to home address. There was an abundance of helpful leaflets and booklets enclosed.
Having previously been used to holidaying in hotels, we opted for change as we have a small Spaniel who was with us. Hand on heart, I can honestly say that I have never felt more comfortable than I was in this stunningly beautiful and interesting cottage. Extremely quaint, to be expected with the age and history of the property. Absolutely everything and more that you could possibly require was available, down to a little sewing kit in the bedroom dresser. Everything has been very carefully thought about. The location is superb, right in the heart of the beautiful village and by the gorgeous water's edge. I absolutely cannot fault Salcombe or this cottage. You must go to appreciate it. Very good value for money, without a doubt, with extremely caring owner's who are only concerned that everything is to your satisfaction. Fabulous!!!!

“Excellent Value with Character and Charm”
Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A charming cottage yards from the water's edge with delightful views from the porthole style bedroom window. This accommodation was comfortable, tidy and well equipped albeit a little dated. The location was perfect with some very good pubs in close proximity. The South West Coastal path was easily accessible by foot and/or ferry and well worth exploring, with outstanding coastal views. There are no luxuries at 8 Clifton Place but this is reflected in a very reasonable and fair price. What you do get is excellent value for money.

Thank you for this complimentary review, as to a little dated with a building put up in 1401 we try to be sympathetic with furnishings, still maintaining comfort.

“A lovely cottage in a fabulous location.”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As a a family of four with two children aged 12 and 15, we stayed at Clifton Place for a week at the end of July. The cottage is in a fabulous location within Salcombe. Across the road is the butchers, bakers and grocers. The cottage was very well equipped, clean and tidy. The bedrooms are a good size with lots of storage. Even though the property has no parking, you are able to pull up outside to drop off luggage etc. We parked on the car park about a 5 minute walk away and paid for a weekly ticket. It was lovely to not use the car for the week as all amenities are in walking distance.

We would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a central location in the heart of Salcome.

“Lovely, Amazing, Brilliant!”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My Partner & I + 3 year old stayed in this lovely little place for 5 days - all 3 of us loved it. Not only did having amazing weather help but the location was superb and our accomodation was very cosy. Both Bedrooms were a superb size and enough storage to fit out stuff. The amenities were great. It had everyhting we needed + more! There a littlwe balcony which gives a great view - just adds to the greatness of this.

“Amazing little place.”
Reviewed May 27, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

This little cottage is located in the middle of Salcombe, close to all shops and local amenities. You won't find a better spot.

It is small but perfectly formed. I travelled with my partner and one year old. The cottage suited us perfectly with lots of crawling space.

The living room is cosy with a TV and wifi, comfy sofas and carpets. It's a old fashioned but charming and clean. This leads onto the kitchen and bathroom. Both adequate. We cooked in the kitchen without problems and utilised the local butcher whose produce is amazing.

The is no bath in the bathroom but shower is fine and always good supply of hot water.

The bedrooms are upstairs. The main bedroom is roomy and nicely decorated. The view from here is lovely. The kids room has plenty of beds but we used their travel cot.

Everything was very clean and tidy.

This is a fantastic little cottage and such excellent value for money. I still cannot believe how cheap it was for a whole week. Worth a visit.

“Champagne taste on lemonade money”

How do you start?

Location amazing, right in the middle of salcombe next to the lifeboat station. Couldn't be better.

The property, if you are trying to rent the ritz, then this isn't it, equally it doesn't pretend to be, if you have seen the pictures you know what you are getting, and that's why I give it a five.

The property was clean and tidy, the beds are comfy, the information pack arrived the day after we booked, so as for service it was amazing.

So for the price you pay you would not get better value anywhere in Salcombe, a true gem that I hope we stay at again.

Thank You.
