Relaxation after a long journey

  • 5 of 5

We had a great couple of days recovering from a long journey from New Zealand and Dubai. Helen had given good instructions because we had to find the place in the dark. Helen was welcoming despite our very late arrival.

We did a great walk on our first day and did sightseeing in Exeter on our second day. It is an easy drive in to Exeter.

The house is very clean and tidy. It is well kitted out with everything required. I can see from the guest book that everyone loves the place. The cakes and wine on our arrival are standard and very delicious.

Super Unterkunft mit gastfreundlicher Vermieterin

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Woche in Christow mit unserer Familie sehr genossen. Das Haus ist modern und persönlich eingerichtet. Man wird von der sympathischen Vermieterin empfangen und startet mit einer Überraschung (welche hier nicht verraten werden soll). Wenn jemand also eine Unterkunft im Süden von Devon sucht, das Dartmoor, Exeter aber auch die Südstrände besuchen möchte, so ist diese Unterkunft unbedingt zu empfehlen.

Vielen Dank, Helen - Gruss Martin

Beautiful home in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 3 night break at this fantastic holiday home. The property is exceptionally clean and beautifully presented and has everything you could possibly need. There was plenty of room for us (family of 5) plus our dog and our children enjoyed the games that were available to play with. Monopoly was a particular favourite. Helen, the owner, had left a lovely bottle of wine and some gorgeous cupcakes, which we were very grateful for after our long journey. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed the warm evenings sat on the terrace. The owners and the neighbours were extremely friendly and helpful. We loved staying in this lovely home in Christow and will definitely return in the future. It is a beautiful part of the world. I only wish that I had booked to stay for longer.

Great place and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Helen and her husband were most accommodating. The place is clean and well appointed. There is lots io do in the area and the pub down the road has food to die for and friendly neighborhood patrons. The entire village is friendly.. Lovely location.
