Four days was not long enough to enjoy all that was offered.
House was excellent and view exceptional.
Unlikely to return as such a long way from home in Cumbria!
Where shall I start, location could not be better, views fantastic, everything you need within walking distance, Salcombe itself is beautiful, orchid house just puts the icing on the cake. Thank you for letting us rent your wonderful cottage.
The Orchid House was perfect for a short stay in Salcombe. The only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer!
Very well equipped, excellent location, fantastic view
Definitely use again
Location and views are perfect
We have been to this cottage twice now and love the views and location - perfect for exploring Salcombe. The house is clean and comfortable; great for a family. I'm sure we'll stay again!
This is a well placed property in Salcombe with 2 parking spaces. We did not need to use a car during our stay as it was so close to the town. It is clean, well equipped with everything that is required for a holiday. The owners responded quickly to all emails.
We spent a long weekend there in order to attend a wedding in the Harbour Hotel. It was probably the nearest we could have stayed to the hotel, without being in the hotel itself, and we were able to pop back during the day when required, as the walk was less than 5 minutes.
4 adults stayed in the property and although our grown up daughters shared the downstairs bedroom, they preferred to use the upstairs shower. We did not use the room with the bunk beds which was probably more suitable for children.
One of the best things about the property was the great view from the lounge window and to be able to 'people watch' whilst sitting on the beanbag at the window!
