Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Keith and Jenny

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at West Soar House, and would like to convey our thanks for having such a great place to stay as a family of 9 in total, in such space with many facilities.

Please pass on our kind appreciation for the great staff you have. We enjoyed their friendliness and their ways of making our stay both in the hotel and in the house so pleasurable.

The cream tea on arrival at the hotel was a nice surprise, and the similar provisions in the house together with the jam marmalade and wines when we moved in.

Our grandson was thrilled with having the top bunk bed, and all our family enjoyed the table tennis and table football games, and the many TVs around the house. The degree of comfort in the house is very high, and the gas barbecue is superb.

A couple of observations;

- we didn’t find the recycle bags (other than black ones) until late on in our stay. We felt very guilty putting glass bottles into black bags. In hind sight we should have asked earlier, but it would have been useful for some guidance on this from the staff at the start of our stay in the house.

- the set of kitchen knives need sharpening.

In summary; we had a great holiday, in a great place, with great people in your team.

From the Owner

When my parents retired we were delighted to buy the family home overlooking the most beautiful view in Devon and my childhood haunt Soar Mill Cove. Soar Mill Cove has given me the most magical childhood and has since given my children an equally idyllic base for their upbringing. Living here is the perfect antidote to life's every day stresses and strains. All you have to do to put life into perspective is to watch the waves crash in on the rocks and soon nothing trivial really matters.

From the Owner

The great USP with West Soar and living here is that you have the space and comfort of a large family home and that million pound view which will surely take your breathe away, yet you also have all the facilities of a well cared for and well equipped hotel on your doorstep. As the owner of both we uniquely offer you the benefit of enjoying all of our facilities completely free of charge and even offer a 10% discount on the very special serendipity restaurant at The Soar Mill Cove Hotel. For me of course it means my commute to work is a 2 minute stroll.
