About Tracy Stringfellow

Tracy and Amon Stringfellow- we have been married for 30 years and we both are in full time work. We have 2 children Aaron who is 27 and Claire who is 25. They both work.

Tracy Stringfellow purchased this chalet in 1991

Why Tracy Stringfellow chose Kilkhampton

My parents originally purchased the chalet after we had all been on holiday there when the children were small. We fell in love with Penstowe, the children could play on the grass out the front of the chalet and we always found something to keep them occupied at all ages.

We took over the running of the chalet in 2011, updated and re-decorated it and are looking forward to our 4th season

Very basic property but clean

  • 3 of 5

The property had seen better days and was without some key items such as seating outside or a decent airer for our damp towels and swimwear. There was condensation on the windows and the decor was very dated. The holiday though was not about the accommodation but would have been made better if the standards were higher. Would not stay at this property again.

Owner's Response: Good Morning I am sorry to hear that our accommodation was not to your satisfaction we do adhere to maintain and update the inside and outside on a yearly basis. You should have found a clothes airer in the bathroom and there should also be a washing line located close to the chalet , as for outdoor seating, we did originally provide outdoor seating but unfortunately these disappeared one season and were never to be found again.

ideal for exploring coastal path

  • 2 of 5

The property smelt of damp when we opened the door. The décor was old and tired. There were plenty of heating devices which were needed as it was very cold when we stayed in September.

Apart from that it is probably lovely in the summer when you can have the doors and windows open. It was comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils.

The location is ideal for the coastal walks. The facilities on the site were good.
