A fantastic property in a lovely part of South Devon, the kids loved the trampoline and swing set. The beds are so comfortable! Lots of space in the house. A short drive to the most beautiful beach and the Sloop Inn does great food! We will definitely be visiting again!

Holbrook was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in - a real home from home!

Hidden in a Combe this house enjoyed views of the hills that would help bring your ski fitness way up! From the top of the hills were wonderful views of three beaches and Burgh Island. The house and its owners are very welcoming. The bedrooms and bathrooms are charming and well-equipped (good showers). The sitting room and kitchen use up one big space and very, very well equipped, not just with the basics, but drawers full of games, dvd's and outside are the trampoline, basketball hoop, bicycles and helmets, body boards and outdoor eating spaces for 16. We couldn't believe how well sorted we were - and there were only 6 of us!,

A short walk to The Sloop for excellent food, good local shop/cafe with great views from the coffee terrace and not far at all to Bantham Beach - awesome kite surfing.

The property was accurately described and when we arrived it was spotlessly clean and we would certainly recommend it to friends. Thank you for having us to stay at Holbrook House.

A fantastic well equipped house with top of the range equipment and comfy beds.

The house has great views of the countryside and the beach is not too far. Kay was very welcoming and a great person to deal with.

Many thanks Kay

We had a great stay in Kay and Richard's property. We were a large group coast path walking. The house was set up brilliantly for a group of us, and Kay was very flexible and accommodating.The house was bright and spacious with a great open plan living room, and excellent cooking facilities. We were lucky to have great weather, and really enjoyed our breakfast on the patio. Excellent. Can't recommend it highly enough!

My group had a fantastic weekend. The house was more than big enough for 6 adults, and in a great location to access Bantham.

The weather wasn't great, but the house was very comfortable to just relax in.

The local pub (a 10 minute walk down a very quiet road) was delightful too, with lovely fresh seafood.

The owners were great to deal with, and I'm already looking to book a return visit!

We thoroughly enjoyed our break in this holiday house. Perfect for the children who loved the upside down arrangement of the house and trampoline with the lovely garden. Extremely well equipped and very clean. Good location with nearby places of interest easily reached by a short car ride or walking. Owners were very helpful and friendly. Hope to return.
