The children varied in age from 3-15 and there was something to entertain all of them. As the weather was particularly nice they spent a lot of time in the gardens playing football, bouncing on the trampoline and fishing for tadpoles! The games barn was used once or twice one the sun went down by the older kids although the younger children needed to be supervised in there at all times. The kitchen was well equipped and it was lovely to be able to seat us all around the table for evening meals and games. The log burner in the lounge was very welcome in the chilly evenings, although there was also additional heating throughout the house. The house was clean, comfortable and basic which meant we didn't need to be worried about the children touching things they shouldn't or breaking anything! The location proved a great base for exploring lots of the local beaches and kingsbridge itself. Hope cove was a particular favourite of ours. The chilli farm at the end of the road proved popular and we spent the morning there on our last day. Ant was very accommodating and made it clear to ask if we needed anything, which we didn't and he clearly wasn't bothered by the noise 8 children and a dog can create! Overall a very relaxing break, we are looking forward to returning.
