About Tim Goodall

We (Tim and Emma) are putting our family home up for holiday lets for the first time. We live and work in Dubai, but have had our second home in Salcombe since 2007. Salcombe is where my wife's family live and so is somewhere we will continue to visit, in addition to the fact it is in a beautiful part of the world. The house was gutted and stripped back allowing us to create a very personal special, albeit compact, family home for our holidays in the UK. We are not letting the home as a business but more of a sustainable need given it is a second home used once a year. We have put a lot of love, care and thought into the design of the interior and outdoor spaces, and we hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Tim Goodall purchased this cottage in 2005

Fantastic New Year Break

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here for our New Year break 2016. The cottage is compact but has absolutely everything you could need and more. It is warm, comfortable and cozy with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a tv in one of the bedrooms if you are feeling lazy! The kitchen has all mod cons, there is plenty of space around the dining table and the lounge is small but comfortable. The cottage is quietly located, but A short walk takes you in to the main shopping area.

Tim kept in touch from the time of booking right through until we left. He was very accommodating with our arrival and departure times and we were able to park 2 cars on the parking area at the back of the cottage which was very much appreciated.

I highly recommend this accommodation and we will definitely be returning soon.

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your lovely house. Everything was perfect for our needs. We cannot pick any faults with it at all. 10 out of 10!

A fantastic Cottage with every amenity you could wish for

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage that had everything you would require, close to Restaurants, bars, the sea and shops. Something for everyone and every taste. We are seriously considering a return in the future. Highly recommended. The crabbing is the best we have found anywhere!!!!( great fun for the children)

Shadycombe Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay which was as good as the first. The cottage is very well located with only a short flat walk in to the town centre which suited us perfectly as we were away from the bustle and noise of the Salcombe centre, but still felt right there. We were perfectly happy to allow our two twelve olds to wonder into town to do a bit of crabbing. The Salcombe ice-cream factory is too close for comfort as my waist line will attest to.

The cottage itself is well furnished, and while small it is not claustrophobic. It has everything required and our party of four fitted in very well with space to spare. To have a parking space at the back was a real bonus, even if getting in and out was a bit of a challenge. The property is in very good order and well presented, we have no complaints.

This year for the first time we were able to use the barbeque which worked very well. Sitting out on the deck with friends and a glass of cold chardonnay and watching the sun go down was magical. Hopefully we will be doing the same next August, so don't book then.

I am happy to recommend Shadycombe cottage unreservedly.

We love salcombe, and we loved our time in the cottage. Everything you could need is there, and the cottage is to a great standard throughout. The parking space is an amazing addition, and offers brilliant access to all the facilities.
