Guestbook comments from the manager

A beautiful house that was well maintained and spotlessly clean. Plenty of facilities and equipment too. And the welcome package was greatly appreciated. Any issues were soon sorted. We will be back!

Amazing fun place to holiday in.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! Easy to find from the directions given to us. So much space for our family of 13. Six spacious bedrooms located in various parts of the house. The lounge upstairs is huge with plenty of seating and a massive television. There's also the garden room which again has plenty of seating and a tv. The games room was well used by everyone in our party. There's a massive dining room with a huge table and plenty of chairs.

The kitchen is lovely and has everything you would need to cook with.

The pool is very large and everyone really enjoyed swimming and playing around in it. There are plenty of towels around the pool for your use.

The whole house was beautifully decorated and lovely and clean. Spotless bedlinen and towels. It was nice that the manager came to see us the morning we left and asked us about our stay. It's easy to get to the coast and moors from and has good pubs and restaurants in the village.

We had a really good holiday and found the house very comfortable.

I would recommend anyone wanting to stay in a holiday home in this part of Devon stay here.
