April Cottage is a delightful country cottage in a beautiful, secluded part of South Devon close to the coastline. The cottage is surrounded by National Trust farmland and is just a short walk along a country footpath to Soar Mill Cove where the footpath joins the South Devon Coastal Path.

The cottage lies roughly half way between Bolt Head and Bolt Tail. With its spectacular cliffs and panoramic view points this is arguably the most dramatic and scenic stretch of coast in South Devon. The popular yachting centre of Salcombe is a few minutes away by car, as are the nearby beaches of Hope Cove, North and South Sands, South Milton Sands and Thurlestone. Only a little further away are the beaches at Bigbury and Bantham, popular with surfers.

We enjoyed our stay very much, the cottage was lovely, nice sized rooms and a well equipped kitchen. The garden was huge and was safe and secure for our dog to run around and enjoy. The location of the cottage was perfect for us, total peace and quiet, surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the Cove, on our next visit we could quite happily stock up the fridge and not bother getting in the car for the rest of the week, just enjoy the walks, the Cove and the stunning views. We have previously stayed at Salcombe Retreat and the lodges there are beautiful but we find April Cottage is far more personal, relaxing and private, it really is a home from home (And the walk to the cove is much easier!!!) Hoping to return in March 2018.

We had a wonderful stay and would like to return next Spring

September 2017

Beautiful rural location. Ideal for walking

August 2017

We were disappointed that on a 2 week holiday there was no mid-stay clean and change of bedding/towels. Weekly cost is the same, but you are saving the cost of one changeover week. Front door handle broke on our very first night, so we were shut out at 10pm in the rain. Response from your out of hours service was immediate and effective, and locksmith was with us very quickly. Gardeners came during our stay to trim hedges and mow lawn. They were extremely professional and at pains not to be any inconvenience when we were at home.

Many thanks for your comments. It is great to see you had a good stay at the property despite a couple issues.It is standard procedure for a mid stay linen change to be offered for a two week stay so we will be looking into why this wasn't the case on this occasion.
