This is our second time at Boatmans Cottage. Its perfect for us. The location is great and its well appointed as a holiday get away for us visiting family in Salcombe from New Zealand. We would recommend this to any one going to the UK as a perfect spot to stay in Salcombe. Thanks for the great quality cottage.

Yes we loved Salcombe and the property. We liked Island Street as well, as it is the cool crafty side of the town. It was very easy for us to visit the local beaches and there was plenty to do in the area. We loved Boatman's cottage and it was perfect for us as a couple. It was nice to have the little outdoor area too. The wifi was excellent too.

Boatmans cottage has been a little haven for us at Salcombe. Cosy and warm during the winter stay. It has everything you could want for in a holiday cottage. Lovely decor well set up and quality fittings. Fantastic bathroom and very good shower. It's positioning in Island street is absolutely perfect for a wander into beautiful Salcombe. The availability of parking is excellent just a few minutes away. What a wonderful place. Top stay and recommended.
