Highly recommended

Our party consisted of my wife and myself, our son and daughter in law and their three young children - all under 3. The property was ideal for our stay: it was clean and well maintained and everything was as per listing description. The facilities make Paxdene very suitable for 2 families sharing.

There is a downhill 10 minute walk to the sea, which we enjoyed but would not recommend for the disabled! We found lots of interesting shops and restaurants in Salcombe and both my wife and I and our son and daughter in law managed an evening meal out during our stay. We went to different restaurants (55 and the Boatswains Brasserie) and both provided a very enjoyable meal. We also went to Dartmouth and Agatha Christie's house during our stay, both of which are well worth a visit.

An unexpected bonus was the discovery that there is a play park approximately a quarter of a mile from the house, which is ideal for young children to let off steam. Finally, we were blessed with dry and mild weather throughout our stay, which made for a very enjoyable holiday.

The nearest beach to Paxdene is Northsands, just a 15 minute walk downhill. This lovely sandy beach is perfect for children. Also close by are the beaches of East Portlemouth accessible from Salcombe via passenger ferry. Our favourite is Mill Bay, a gorgeous sheltered beach situated in the mouth of the Salcombe estuary. Mill Bay is MCS recommended for it's high quality water standards, and as well as plenty of golden sand Mill Bay beach has rock pools and safe bathing for families.
