|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Cornerways is a five bedroom family home, benefiting from 3 separate reception rooms, including a large sunny conservatory. It has a good sized garden and off street parking for 3 cars. There is a small terrace to the rear and a larger, furnished terrace to the front of the property, where the estuary views can be enjoyed. The town is a short walk away and the Spar grocery is just around the corner.
Owners Nick and Jenny have three adult children. We all love holidaying in Salcombe with the family, as well as spending time at Cornerways with our friends.
We live and work just outside London and enjoy taking weekend breaks down in Devon to get away from the stresses of our working life, enjoying the hustle and bustle of the busy summer months, but equally the peace and tranquility offered in low season.
Jennifer Chard purchased this house in 1998
We have been holidaying in Salcombe since the 1970's, and in 1998 decided to buy Cornerways. It is a lovely family home, in a good location being set about 5-10 minutes walk from the centre. There are great views and good inside and outside space.
Three separate reception areas means that those wishing to watch TV can be in a separate location from those wanting to socialise in the dining room or conservatory. The conservatory also offers a feeling of being outside when the weather is not ideal, whilst still enjoying the views. Our newly constructed loft suite offers a large bedroom with ensuite shower room and a sitting area with views. This can be a lovely refuge for grandparents who wish to have their own space.
Apart from the lounge, downstairs is not carpeted. This accommodates our guests who like to bring their dogs away with them.
We have private off street parking for three cars.
The Spar convenience store is just around the corner!
Your house is amazing, we fell in love with it. It is the first time we have all felt happy and comfortable in a rented holiday home. Mrs JT
Third year running in this lovely house for a great family holiday. Mrs R
Most enjoyable, appreciate the conservatory and generally all that goes in to keeping the house comfortable. Mrs N
Excellent house, great facilities. Loved the car parking! Mrs O
We rented this house for a family reunion and it was all we could hope for, spacious, clean, homely. Everything was available and well equipped from coffee machine to games. Wonderful conservatory and even though there were nine of us there was ample space for everyone to chill. The house is high above the town with lovely views but to walk to can be difficult for the less able and hard work with a push chair, but there was adequate parking in the town.
We Thoroughly recommend this house.
