    • “We have stayed on the Cadhay estate before and as before we received a warm welcome from the owners, who are lovely. My only comment would be that the property is advertised as having antiques - this nearly put us off as our very young grandchildren were coming with us this time and we were concerned that the property might not be suitable. However the property was very well suited, there was plenty of room for us all, and nothing too valuable to damage. We were so pleased that we booked it. You might want to reconsider the description?”

    Mrs Mathews, WEST WICKHAM, October 2018

    • “A very well appointed, warm and comfortable cottage with particularly spacious downstairs accommodation. Delightful setting. Excellent accessibility to the coast and inland attractions. Very efficient and friendly staff. Our only criticism was that the adjoining greenhouse was a bit of a mess”

    Mrs Barnett, SHREWSBURY, October 2018

    • “We have been to the Coach House before and we always enjoy our visits. It suits our needs perfectly and we hope to return next year. We enjoy this part of Devon and the relaxing atmosphere that Cadhay offers. Jayne and Rupert are pleasant, friendly and helpful and are always available should we need them during our stay. Thank you”

    Ms Abbott, Wokingham, September 2018

    • “This was our fourth visit to the Stables or Coach House, Cadhay and had high expectations , which were fulfilled.”

    Mr Bishop, Watford, July 2018

    • “This is the third time we have stayed at the properties in Cadhay and we are recommending it to all our friends and planning a return visit again next year if we manage to book in time. its a place of pure escapism from the noise of home, giving a serenity that restores the soul - whatever age you are. Thank you for all of your help.”

    Miss Tily, BRISTOL, June 2018

    • “This is the second time in a year I have stayed at the Coach House in the last six months. It is in the loveliest setting and is wonderful if you have a dog, as I do. Everyone at Cadhay goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The cottage is really well equipped if you like to cook while you are away, as I do, I will return again.”

    Mrs Colclough, HIGH WYCOMBE, April 2018
