Heaven in Devon

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four have just returned from a wonderful, relaxing holiday staying in the spacious, yet warm Orchard cottage. It was very comfortable, with welcome goodies on our arrival ( wine for us adults, biscuits for the children! ) and nothing too much trouble for Jane, the owner. The house is situated in the most perfect spot. There are 30acres of grounds and gardens for the children and dog to run around ( the stream and rugby conversion post being a big hit! ) plus it is a couple of easy walking miles from two lovely cafes and the quirky Oyster Shack.

I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful holiday in a beautiful part of Devon.

Pretty and perfect

Lovely accommodation, especially suited our grandchildren who loved the space outside. The lounge was spacious and very comfortable. Great bunk bed room for four kids.

Perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5

From booking to leaving the owners were super accommodating. We wanted our Christmas holiday to start on a Wednesday and they were the only owners to have the forsight to recognise that with Christmas being on a Friday the normal Friday changeover wouldn't make sense and they happily took our booking.

A couple of days before we got there the owners called to ask if we would like the Christmas tree fully decorated or would the children enjoy this, of course the children loved arriving to do this fun job. You really can't put a price on this attention to detail in customer care!

The house itself was spacious but unintimidating, so we could really relax and enjoy ourselves without a worry in the world. The 4 kids played endlessly in the beautiful grounds building dens and on rainy we enjoyed games around the log burner. The kitchen had all the necessary utensils to cook a proper Chrimbo feast.

For people that want a proper countryside encounter where life is simple and undisturbed, kids can get muddy and run around freely this is the place for you. Probably one of my most enjoyable Christmas's ever and we were in such raptures bragging to everyone about our perfect Christmas upon our return that another friend swiftly booked for Easter! Well done Yabbacombe 10 out of 10 from 2 very satisfied families!!!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My family (4 adults and 1 teenager) and I thoroughly enjoyed our week stay in Orchard Cottage. It was exactly as described although bigger inside than we expected. The property was very well laid out with plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed the garden and surrounding land, particularly walking to the trout lake and over the bridge to the island. The cottage is idyllically situated in the middle of nowhere, a real hidden gem, perfect for 'getting away from it all' but also a great base for the many things to see and do in the area. The cottage is a well equipped home from home and the owners Bob and Jane are very friendly & helpful. We would definitely recommend this property
