Fantastic cottage close to the sea
This is a fabulous place (though see my advice at the end). A lovely cottage tucked away down a quiet lane. It has been fully restored with all the mod-cons. On arrival it was spotlessly clean ? so much so it looked new! A small welcome pack of bread, eggs, butter, wine was a lovely touch. It has an excellent kitchen with all that you need; induction hob, dishwasher, washer-dryer washing machine etc all top quality. Lovely, large master bedroom and small and charming double bunkroom for kids. Come as a couple and use this for storage I suggest. The bathroom is excellent, clean and bright with a large shower/bath. There is a delightfully nautically themed seating at the rear outside too, but more of a summer thing of course. There are lots of local interest books on the shelves and board games too. We liked the ?tide times? clock, which we found really useful once set correctly. The place has under-floor heating, which is all you need to keep it warm with the staircase door open to let some heat upstairs. There is no phone signal (perhaps a bonus ? or walk down to the beach to get it) but there is wifi and a landline with an honesty box. So some advice? This place is down some really narrow lanes so be sure of your driving/reversing skills. Don?t think of relying on a satnav. Get the OL20 OS map and use that. Come to the place from below i.e. North Hallsands, as the road down to it is so narrow. Getting anywhere with the tiny lanes will take ages so be prepared to do short outings: local beach, Torcross, Beesands, Start Lighthouse, or stay in/walk etc. Perhaps Salcombe on the tiny boat that takes passengers across the river. Those with limited mobility will find it hard to get up to as it has small and steep entrance steps. There is one parking space, which is larger than it looks, but if you come in two cars park one at North Hallsands and walk back to the cottage. Shame there appears to be no recycling but perhaps the commercial is sorted. All in all this is a fabulous place. We just loved it!
