“Beautiful house in amazing location...”

On arrival, we were all blown away by the beauty of the location and corresponding sea views. We were met by the Property Manager (Deborah) who took the time to show us around the house and everything was in great condition.
Being a group of 19 (10 adults and 9 children - ranging from 3 to 9 years old) we are always nervous about how a holiday home would cater for our needs and accommodate so many of us under one roof, but we were all very satisfied by the living conditions.
The sleeping quarters were clean and spacious and tastefully decorated, with a decent amount of bathroom facilities to meet our needs. There were travel cots and extra beds available making it easy to juggle the room configurations when the inevitable happened on the first night with the older children ending up in one room together!
The bathrooms were all clean, modern and well stocked.
What really made our stay perfect however, was the living quarters downstairs. The Kitchen was large and spacious with casual dining for the children’s dinner time and ideal for family breakfasts together.
The large decking area provided the perfect setting for dinner when the weather allowed and you could not ask for a better vista to enjoy a glass of wine in the late afternoon/ evening.
It was only a short walk down to South Sands beach with ample activities including Kayak and Paddle Board hire, along with the ferry to Salcombe itself. A 10 minute walk along the road led to North Sands with it's excellent beach and the highlight of our stay... The Winking Prawn restaurant, serving excellent food in a beautiful setting.
All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend The Wood to anyone and will definitely be returning again as I think we will struggle to find a holiday home that meets so many of our requirements, whilst also offering such incredible views.
