    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 .

    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.

    The property is situated in a delightful part of the country and the initial impression of the premise was good with two quite nice rooms (the lounge and master bedroom). However, on living there for a week, this initial impression worsened; the bathroom is miniscule and the steep staircase with only one handrail and an open unprotected side did cause some concern. Another problem was the highly sensitive fire alarm which was activated by either toasting or using the cooker. Having a bacon butty for breakfast was an extremely noisy affair and the only way to minimise the effect was cooker fan on full, kitchen and landing windows fully open. All in all, lovely area, two decent eateries, helpful and pretty well stocked local shop, but the premise itself had a few issues with internal layout

    A good location and cottage but unfortunately there was no loo roll or kitchen soap

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I take on-board your comments and will from now on supply hand wash in the kitchen like there is in the bathroom. With the toilet roll that was my mistake as there was toilet roll in the bedroom wardrobe but on the occasion of your visit I forgot to transfer it from there to the bathroom, my oversight and I apologise.
