Firm Anchor holiday cottage in Salcombe is a large detached family house in Salcombe on three levels, on a residential street 800 yards up from the waterfront, pubs, cafes and shops and with terrific long views of the estuary. Five minute walk to public outdoor heated swimming pool (May to September).
At the front of Firm Anchor in Salcombe isan enclosed and private courtyard with table and chairs and a gas barbecue. At the back of Firm Anchor holiday cottage, a smallish lawned garden. Inside, fresh, simple, unfussy decor, full of light from lots of windows. Open-plan hall and living/dining/fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/electric oven) with open fire, TV/DVD, iPod dock and sliding doors to balcony (table/chairs), all with super estuary views. Utility room with washing machine, tumble drier, through to shower-room (suite). Stairs (stairgates) down to three bedrooms includiing a double, a room with 3' bunks plus single (both with doors to garden), and a single; bathroom (suite with separate shower).
From living area at Firm Anchor, stairs up to landing (TV/DVD, good area for toys/games) and two more bedrooms with great views and a roomy double bedroom (5' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), and a very small single (limited clothes-hanging space). Corner shop, 200 yards.
Very disappointed. 1 stairgate for 2 flights of stairs. Should have 4 stairgates. Uneven block paving in courtyard, trip hazard. Extremelly filthy BBQ, not fit to be used. Loose light switch and bannister. Loose spacers in balcony so thet spinsters can be moved. Unsafe balcony, easy to climb over by children. Sttep concrete steps in garden. Uncovered drain. Gap between doors and balcon, trip hazard. Damp and musty smell down stairs. Cracked sink. Lawn mower left in back garden. Not child or dog friendly. Barely fit 1 car on drive. Anxious about parking ticket. Got one.
