“The position was superb with amazing views. We loved the large terrace with garden furniture where we sat and enjoyed breakfast and evening meals/ barbecues.
It was great having our own beach and mooring.
The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to watch the river activity whilst cooking and washing up.
We were able to take advantage of the mooring as we hired a boat and spent a lovely time exploring the river and little coves and even discovered a pub upstream.
The minor grievances were the parking space - difficult for three cars; we didn't realise the number of steps and terraced levels which made it hazardous for young children. We enjoyed good weather whilst at Harbour Watch, but bad weather might have been a problem as the roads are narrow and access tricky to negotiate with more than 2 cars.
One of our party is a good cook and he was up early baking bread most mornings. He commented there was no veg steamer which he thought would be a good addition.”
“Salcombe Finest were ridiculous! And by that I mean in that they presented the house that we rented from them so impeccably that even my cynical ex-hotelier wife could find no fault with it's preparedness and presentation. And that they were ever present for all things, but were never intrusive, is the mark of a firm at the top of it's game. Exemplary in all things, what's not to admire?!!”
“A great house for a large party. Smack bang in the middle of all the action on Salcombe high street so fantastic for nipping out for coffee and all the yummy restaurants literally on your doorstep. So good to go somewhere dog friendly. Much appreciated! Fore Decks was spotlessly clean when we arrived and very comfortable throughout our stay. Lots of stairs and parking a little way away so probably not ideal for very young children or older or disabled people. We look forward to returning to Salcombe in the sunshine next time!”
“Lucy at Salcombe First was very patient with all our questions and made the booking process very easy.
Watch Hill is a very beautiful house in an ideal location, 5 mins walk into Salcombe and fabulous views of the estuary. We had a memorable Christmas here with extended family, lots of room and extremely comfortable. Salcombe itself has a good selection of lovely shops, great pubs and cafes, and wonderful coastal walks. Highly recommended.”
“We were a little disappointed as for the first hour I had to make several calls to sort out the WiFi, a double socket in the sitting room is hanging of the wall and a piece of sealing paper is hanging down in the front bedroom (i have pictures if needed!)”
“Very helpful from the first telephone enquiry. Booking process was easy and we were met on arrival at the property to run through how everything worked. It was good to know there was someone we could call if we had any problem.”
“Salcombe Finest was a superb partner in planning and executing our holiday. Both the team and Lesley (our property owner) were helpful and responsive - a big plus considering we were doing all our planning from America. The house was perfect for our group, and Lesley did a great job providing advice and suggestions on how to make it all 'work.' We simply couldn't have been more pleased with choosing Salcombe Finest - and we've said so to so many of our friends.”
“All emails and texts were answered quickly. Property was just as described on website. Property was furnished and fitted out to a high standard, and was perfectly clean on arrival. Appreciated Kate calling mid-stay to check that all was in order.”
“We have just had a fabulous holiday. The photos we viewed prior to the holiday were of a beautiful house however the house we stayed in was better than the photos which has been taken. There was more space than we expected. The service from Salcombe finest was excellent. The house keeper was efficient and ironed really well. The deposit was returned in full with no problems or discussion. The ocado shopping was unpacked during the cleaning time every other day and it all worked without a problem. I feel I had a holiday. The kids loved it, the games room and Wi were perfect for quieter times at the house. It was just a lovely experience with no hassle before, during or after the holiday.”
