Guestbook comments from the owner
Here are just a few comments from our Visitor's Book in the lodge.
"We have travelled all over the world (we are an international family) and are familiar and very experienced in hospitality and can honestly say that the lodge was excellent. It was a superb holiday for us. Location was great and amenities were fine. Would very much recommend and indeed will like to return sometime."
4.8 based on 5 holidaymaker reviews
The property was great in a lovely spot. We had a great fun filled holiday. They only thing that we didn't like was when we first arrived at the mobile home, It seemed like it had been shut up for a while and smelt musty, we had to leave the windows open whenever we could. Apart from that we enjoyed it very much.
The lodge was superbly equipped and spotless.
The location was beautiful and exactly as described. We had some wonderful walks along the coastal path and were lucky with the weather too. Simply stunning part of the country.
Wonderful chalet and such a great location. Faultless accommodation. We all had a lovely stay and will definitely want to return in the future. K Dowding.
Lovely stay at Saw mill cove.
We have just come back from a lovely stay at this property at Saw mill cove which was exactly as described on the site. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the lodge and it was great to have all cleaning products supplied as this made it so much easier to keep the lodge in good condition. It was extremely well equipped with the kitchen containing everything you could possibly ever need and more! The owner was very helpful with the queries I had beforehand and always got back to me promptly.
The area around Sawmill cove is stunning and nearby Salcombe is a beautiful part of the country with a bustling atmosphere. The lodge is a little remote and you do need to drive to most places although there are some great walks from the doorstep. There is a massive choice of beaches and bays to visit, our favourite of the week being South Milton sands and it's well worth getting the passenger ferry over to East Portlemouth for lovely walks and secluded bays.
Salcombe has lots of places to eat. We enjoyed fish and chips by the harbour and our meal at The Victoria Inn was a big hit with us all.
I would definitely recommend this property and the local area to others if you like a quiet place to return to but lots of interesting things to do. The only warning I would give is that the roads are not great for cycling as they are very narrow and windy yet also quite busy with cars so we didn't get any use from our bikes that week.
A great place to stay with easy access to Salcombe
What more could you ask for in a holiday let. The lodge was clean and the kitchen is well equipped, even more so than my home. There's a really easy walk down to a beech and a slightly longer walk to hope cove which we enjoyed, especially the beer reward at the end.
It rained a few days whilst we were there but everything was good enough that we cooked a full roast dinner! Then when sunny there was nothing better than watching the sunset.
We'll be back soon.

Having dived this coastline for over 20 years and visiting throughout the Spring & Summer months we understood the value of the peace and tranquillity that this location provides and with Salcombe with its attractions and hustle and bustle only 10 minutes away.”

From the Owner
“Our lodge has stunning views over National Trust headlands to the south and to the sea in the west and a large secluded grass area to the side. The South West coastal path is only a short walk as is Soar Mill Cove itself. It really being the hidden treasure of the location. When the other beaches in the area are packed, Soar Mill Cove won’t be. Here you will find clean sand, brilliant for sandcastle making, safe swimming for children,rock pools and streams to explore and all in walking distance from our lodge.”
