                                                                                            We chose the house for its situation particularly its proximity to the coast. We were three couples and a single who holiday once a year to spend time on the local shores investigating local marine life. The accommodation worked well although there was a gulf between the grandeur of the master bedroom and the other bedrooms, particularly those on the basement floor. When we arrived there was a noticeable smell of damp in the basement. During the course of the week this was remedied by the use of the dehumidifier provided. Avondale is well-appointed with particularly good provision of fridge and freezer space. The kitchen was generally well-equipped although we felt we would have appreciated more bowls for mixing, serving bowls. The utility room in the basement was fit for purpose and ideal for storing all those items you don't want to be falling over during the course of your stay. One thing we thought would have been helpful would be hooks on the backs of bedroom doors for robes etc, and somewhere to air our damp towels in our bedrooms. The other thing we found a bit of a trial is the slow internet connection. When we were all using our various devices, which was several times a day, getting connected was painfully slow and some websites were evidently too large to open at all. We found the games room to be a useful amenity. The views from the large lawn are superb. Parking space was adequate, with care we parked four cars on the drive. There is a deep rut which is not clearly seen until you drive over it, at the beginning of the grass drive which takes you to the gate.

We were met by Gill the most charming and welcoming owner with a delicious cream tea laid out for us. The apartment is so comfortable and well equipped with the most amazing views, certainly the best we have stayed at. We were lucky to have good weather and walked the coastal paths most days as well as fitting in trips to Dartmouth, Salcombe and Hope Cove. This is somewhere we would be happy to return to, maybe one day with the Grandchildren - who knows? Thank you so much Gill.

We arrived just before 4pm expecting to be able to get in, but on reading the instructions again it says 6pm. I have to say I think this is too late. Also probably my fault for missing some info somewhere, but I always assumed from the photo that we would be in the annex, and was surprised to find that it was a first floor apartment in the main building. Apart from those two things, everything else was great. The apartment is well equipped, very spacious, and has fabulous views. The local pub is friendly and welcoming, with good food, and possibly the best chips anywhere. As a dog owner one of the best things was to find out how dog friendly the whole of the South Hams area is. The dog enjoyed lots of beautiful beaches, and endless fuss from people in pubs. The field adjacent to the property is perfect for an early morning walk, and the bench overlooking Bigbury perfect for a glass of wine in the evening. Al in all a very enjoyable holiday.
