Excellent Large Group House

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely big country house down a long drive, perfect for our family birthday celebration, set it its own very big grounds, which were lovely and full of wildlife, we saw deer everyday!

The house has 10 bedrooms, with varying numbers of beds in each room, so was ideal to accommodate our individual family groups with the children.

The house was suitably equipped for large groups, with lots of sofas and a big kitchen that had a long table with benches and also a corner sofa that was very much used throughout our stay.

The swimming pool and pool table in the separate wooden cabin were used lots, the pool really made the weekend for us, the children used it endlessly.

We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend it without any question.

House in need of attention

  • 3 of 5

I suggest that the volume of hen parties has taken it's toll on the house, if you are planning anything other than a wild party weekend, then look elsewhere or set lower expectation.

We rented the house for my Mums 70th, we were charged premium price and found a property that could not match this cost. Don't get me wrong, we went to party, but spent the first few hours cleaning. However, to give you an idea of what to expect.....

The appliances in the kitchen are mostly in a poor state, no shelves in the freezer, broken coffee machine with door that drops down (old sellotape), hard to use microwave, fridge with broken base,

Bedrooms are basic, some have OK bathrooms, but many of these have poor plumbing.

Overall, the house needs some serious attention and investment. Thank goodness the weather was good, it would have been a bit miserable to be shut inside.

The games room is simply a shed, a broken pool table and a cue held together with tape !

We tried to raise with the owner, she hasn't bothered to respond, we didn't ask for a refund, but it is definitely not worth the money and will probably disappoint.

The advertised balcony on the lounge is a bit dangerous, the railings are loose, the doors are nailed shut (there is a side door). Grounds are a bit run down.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and we are so sorry that our property did not meet your expectations. The property is let every week of the year . It rents to a variety of occupants from families to hen parties.Many of our guest return again and again We rarely have a problem with a guest so much so that we would not wish them to return. Sadly this is the case with your rental Your party paid at the rate of £35.74 per person per night I would suspect that most readers would not think this to be a premium price to quote your words. We find it very hard to believe that you would post comments such as these especially seeing as you left the property in a disgusting state . You had broken both the freezer and the fridge, (parts have now been replaced) and the cooker was extremely dirty The whole property was dirty and left in a dishevelled state .We ask guests to leave the property as they find it. You certainly did not If there truly had been problems when you arrived at the property. (which would be strange as the owner inspected the property just a few hours before you arrived) Why on earth did you not call the owners?There was an information pack left at the property with three contact numbers within in for the weekend, our maintenance team could have been with you in minutes to fix any of your supposed problems. Strangely no calls were received all weekend!! We would suspect this is because the review you have posted is of a fictitious nature, and simply a reaction to a request for a contribution from you towards the extra cleaning charges and the replacement of equipment broken by your group To further evidence the untruthful nature of your comments you mention that the grounds need attention. Quite by coincidence the video of the grounds that runs on the website was shot on the day before your occupation (this can be evidenced by the trees just coming into leaf) I am sure that any potential customer looking at that video would see well kept,beautiful grounds. Owners Direct are implementing a review site for owners to post comments about guests; Your party will be the first on the unwanted list to warn other unsuspecting home owners We sincerely hope that new customers will read our comments with interest, and understand that while we listen to all reviews very seriously, this review is so out of kilter with our other reviews , that perhaps the comments should be taken very lightly .

Fab Hen Party Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I was given the task of organising my sisters hen party weekend, she wanted a large country house but close enough to a big town for some party fun.

I found this property online and booked. We have just had that party and had the most fab weekend.

The house is ideal for hen parties, plenty of space and bedrooms, but with a compact layout, so you are never too far away from each other. The kitchen is very much at the heart of the house and a great size, with doors that lead out onto the veranda and over looking the garden, sadly due to the weather we could not get out that much, it must be amazing in the summer.

The location of the house is ideal, just a few minutes from the pubs and clubs of Exeter, obviously essential for the Saturday night partying. Whilst very much a country house surrounded by fields its only about a 5 minute drive from the motorway at Exeter.

The owners gave me lots of help with ideas of things to do and their website was very helpful with ideas and contact details. The website showed lots of photos and also a video.

To sum up, good value and standard of accommodation, perfect for a lovely hen party.

Family Birthday Celebrations

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this property celebrating our mothers birthday.

The house provides a great space for a large family group, and whilst the house is plenty large enough for little ones to be able to get to bed without being troubled by noise, its not too big that you have to worry about them.

The house has very large grounds, which sadly due to the wet weather we did not get much time in, but in good weather would be amazing for children to play in. Clean, tidy and well equipped was ideal for us, and have to say very good value.

Our weekend was very relaxing, there are some nice pubs and long walks nearby, Woodbury Common was great, the kids loved exploring the woods,this meant car use was kept to a minimum.

The whole family loved the swimming pool, it was hard to get the children out! could have spent hours in there but sadly not enough time on this visit , we are planning to come again in the new year.

We have to say that is was lovely to be met by the owner and shown around.

Brilliant Venue

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this property over the last few weeks as part of a business group. The property is well equipped and in a wonderful setting.

It caters well for groups like us, having all of the facilities for large amounts of people. The swimming pool is wonderful and lovely to have a dip before and after work

Clean and comfortable I would certainly recommend.

Excellent Golf Break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a midweek golf break, playing 3 of the local courses, none more than 15 minutes drive away.

There are a great range of local courses, and the ones we chose had the most amazing coastal views.

The house suited our needs perfectly, a very private modern country house in its own land, with plenty of parking. Great house, well equipped and very very good value.

As a point of note, Woodbury Park is only about 10 minutes away should you wish to play there.
