Perfect Pad!

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us (six adults, our three young grandchildren and our baby grandaughter) have just had a wonderful Easter week staying at this beautiful holiday home.

The amount of space in there for everyone has to be seen to be believed and there was plenty of room for us all without treading on each other's toes, so don't be put off by the size of the front of the property - it is positively tardis like!! Everything you could possibly want in a holiday home is catered for, including plenty of gadgets and gizmos to keep everyone (including the kiddies!) entertained. All we needed to bring with us was our own bed linen and towels and, of course, food and drink.

The house is in a good position with lovely views from the rear overlooking Salcombe and the countryside/estuary. We found the local Spar very handy, being just a minute's stroll away and the walk downhill into Salcombe itself was delightful - the hike back uphill however wasn't quite so delightful and us oldies found ourselves having to pause every so admire the views again of course!!

The owner Vicky was extremely friendly and helpful with any queries we had before we arrived and there is also a housekeeper who lives 'very' close-by should you need her whilst staying at Paxdene.

All of us (young and old!) would certainly have no hesitation in recommending a stay at this lovely property - totally Fab-u-lous!!!!!

Highly recommended

Our party consisted of my wife and myself, our son and daughter in law and their three young children - all under 3. The property was ideal for our stay: it was clean and well maintained and everything was as per listing description. The facilities make Paxdene very suitable for 2 families sharing.

There is a downhill 10 minute walk to the sea, which we enjoyed but would not recommend for the disabled! We found lots of interesting shops and restaurants in Salcombe and both my wife and I and our son and daughter in law managed an evening meal out during our stay. We went to different restaurants (55 and the Boatswains Brasserie) and both provided a very enjoyable meal. We also went to Dartmouth and Agatha Christie's house during our stay, both of which are well worth a visit.

An unexpected bonus was the discovery that there is a play park approximately a quarter of a mile from the house, which is ideal for young children to let off steam. Finally, we were blessed with dry and mild weather throughout our stay, which made for a very enjoyable holiday.

The nearest beach to Paxdene is Northsands, just a 15 minute walk downhill. This lovely sandy beach is perfect for children. Also close by are the beaches of East Portlemouth accessible from Salcombe via passenger ferry. Our favourite is Mill Bay, a gorgeous sheltered beach situated in the mouth of the Salcombe estuary. Mill Bay is MCS recommended for it's high quality water standards, and as well as plenty of golden sand Mill Bay beach has rock pools and safe bathing for families.
