The cottage is really well kitted out and was very clean. The hotel staff were very friendly and gave us really good advice about things to do. We'd love to go back.
We very much enjoyed our stay. All the staff were so welcoming and went out of their way to help. The cottage was clean and well prepared. The cream tea on arrival was an unexpected touch, delicious.
We had three meals in the hotel & the food was excellent.
The Golf Course was in good condition & the family enjoyed the large indoor pool. We found plenty to do on the estate.
We stayed at the Stables and were very pleased with the accommodation. The bedrooms were large and each bedroom had it's own bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked for ourselves every day. The mezzanine floor for the children (aged 8 and 6) was perfect.
We were extremely lucky with the weather and spent a lot of time on the patio. The swimming pool was lovely and some days we swam twice a day - never over crowded and at times we were the only ones there. My 2 sons used the golf course which they said was a great course. We had a boat and because the weather was so good we were able to water ski etc launching the boat at Appledore.
The staff at Highbullen were always friendly and very helpful.
The only reason I have rated this holiday 4 stars and not 5 is purely location. Due to the excellent weather it was a good half hour to the coast.
A great holiday was had by all.
