Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The house and gardens were fantastic. There was plenty of space even though there were 14 people in our group. The house was clean and well equipped. We used the pool every day even though it wasn't the hottest of weeks. The location is good, with plenty to do in the local area. We had an amazing holiday.

Brilliant Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I took my 3 children, their wives and 6 grandchildren aged 1 to 6 years. The house is the central part of a large manor house and is a family home. They generously left lots of things out for children to play with both in the house and outside. There are play houses and tree houses as well as the swimming pool; so everyone could easily entertain themselves. You can easily walk along the coastal path to sandy beaches at Westward Ho and some people are happy to swim off the rocks at the coast quite near the house. This house is ideal for families who have a relaxed attitude to life and enjoy the space both inside and outside. Brilliant!

Amazing house and great base for a wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us (two people in their 60s, four in their thirties, and three under 8s) had a wonderful week. The house is wonderfully decorated, well maintained and cleanse, and had lots of space and everything we needed.

Beautiful, spacious house & garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this beautiful house. The location is wonderful - within 5 mins walk of the coastal path and close to Bideford and Westward Ho! (you can walk along the coast to the latter). The house is very spacious with large, sunny and beautifully decorated rooms. The pool is a good size and the garden is huge. It is a great house for kids, but also has a relaxing, peaceful feel for adults and plenty of space to spread out for an extended family. The views of sunsets from the tower are unforgettable.
