    Comfort and Equipment






    Value for money



    out of 10

    Wonderful location with good local amenities. Lovely local bakery. Well equipped cottage. Owner easily contactable and helpful. Very small, ideally for only two. Very steep stairs and cramped bathroom.

    Our third visit to Salmons Leap. Lovely village with easy access to walking on Dartmoor. Cottage has everything we need. We’ve gone summer and Autumn and been comfortable each time.

    bathroom needs overhaul, no hot water for 4 days, hedges &lawn in garden needed cutting, garden table and chairs needed cleaning, Horrabridge is a great place



    out of 10

    Positives - good location for walking on Western Dartmoor, two pubs (Leaping Salmon good), village shop/PO and supermarkets in Tavistock. Negatives - small bedroom below minimum legal standard for an adult, bathroom tired and in need of upgrading, shower difficult to use for 6ft and above (and tricky enough for 5'9""!). Narrowness and steepness of stairs would make it unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems. Loose TV cable that had to be positioned just right to get a picture. Garden weedy, overgrown, no view and unattractive. Overall - I've rented a lot of cottages over the years including 7 others in Devon. This one is definitely in the bottom quartile and not good value for money compared to others.

    The bathroom lets it down and could do with upgrading.

    The cottage was spotless, comfortable and well-equipped. Considering the time of year and weather, the wood burner was much appreciated. Ideal location for a family who loves Dartmoor and various National Trust properties. Our dog also loved the park and local walks. Fish and chips at 'The Chippie' is a must. We did have a problem with the central heating but, as soon as we told Steve, he came over immediately and fixed the problem. The following is not meant to deter others because we really enjoyed our stay at Salmon Leap, but they might appreciate knowing that the stairs are very steep, the floors upstairs have the creaks of an older cottage and slope .



    out of 10

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful but quiet location. It is a cottage so a little on the small side if you’re 6 foot+ But this is by no means a criticism. Decor was lovely, owner helpful, and the welcome pack was a lovely gesture. Would definitely recommend and would like to return in the summer months next time.

    Lovely cottage, we had a great time ,would definitely stay here again
