“Stylish house in a great location for exploring”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Paxdene for a week with our young children and my parents for a family holiday. The house is beautifully decorated and had plenty of space for our group - the deck outside is particularly lovely for catching the early evening sun with a glass of wine! My son loved having the Wii in his room and the two en suites as well as a family bathroom meant everyone had their own space to get ready which is good with a large group. The house has everything you could possibly need when travelling with small children(including travel cot, high chairs, lots of plastic tableware and small cutlery) which is so helpful. Plus there is a useful basement room accessed from the garden with washing machine to store your sandy beach stuff without trailing it through the house. There is a small parking space at the back into which we managed to fit our large 4x4 on one occasion, but we managed to park on the street mostly.

The house is up the hill in Salcombe which means a steep uphill walk from the town, but thankfully it's not a long one (about 10 mins) - use the steps rather than following the road around. But being slightly out of the town means a quick getaway to all the other lovely surrounding beaches and restaurants - and there are so many to explore!! Bantham, Thurlstone and Hope Cove were all lovely finds, the first two having brilliant beach cafes for lunch.

This is such a lovely house to stay in - a real home from home! It suited us perfectly and we would highly recommend staying here.

I booked Paxdene for my Uncle, Aunt, Cousin and her husband, together with my Mum, as they were visiting from Australia. My brother and I joined them for a couple of nights towards the end of their week. A slightly unpromising exterior is completely transformed when you enter the property! It is well laid out, nicely decorated and so well appointed throughout. The cooking facilities are excellent and even items like razor sharp knives were a joy to behold! The bedrooms allow flexible accomodation and there is a useful room downstairs at the back to store any beach gear.

“Great Location, Fantastically decorated”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

If you are looking for a comfortable, stylish, contemporary place to stay in Salcombe then this is it. My wife and I found this place to stay with my large family (10) as a 60th birthday gift for my Dad. It has been beautifully decorated with everything capturing the essence of being by the seaside but with lovely pastel colours and contemporary style. The 2 main bedrooms are spacious (although lack of wardrobe) and the third bedroom turns into a massive double but then dominates the small room. The forth bedroom is perfect for kids with big bunk beds, telly and a wii. The location is great in a quiet enough road on the top of Salcombe and only a 10 min walk into town but 15 walking back up the hill! There's a local Spar just over the road who is open all hours and sells loads of great bits for anything impromptu but you will need to go to Tesco's for the big shop. Parking is on the road but we had no problem parking 3 cars within 30 seconds walk or if not right outside. Amenities in the house are fantastic with big tellies, blu ray player, awesome sound system, loads of pots/pans/crockery/cutlery, great oven, fridge/freezer, table football, BBQ and more.
I'd thoroughly recommend Paxdene to anybody with or without kids for a value for money seaside break. It's really a cosy home-from-home place where you can relax in comfort. My wife and I are planning to be back with her family next!
