    • “Lovely stay in very good accommodation. Fabulous house, thanks!”

    Dr Bolton, Stockport, December 2018

    • “Lovely cosy well equipped property with charming attention to detail and comfort by owners/caretakers... more than enough accommodation for teenagers and adults to separate but lots of large shared space for those ‘together’ times.. this feels like a family home whose owners have just popped out leaving you in it... a real home from home....”

    Mrs Farrell, December 2018

    • “We had a very enjoyable holiday in this lovely house, which would be big enough for all the family. There is an Aga which I thoroughly enjoyed cooking on and the dogs loved to lay next to it. There are some great dog friendly pubs in the area too. Sadly the big clock in the lounge wasn't working/ wound up as its a great feature and we love clocks.”

    Mrs Napthine, Gosport, October 2018

    • “The clock house was fabulous with great facilities, the gardens were a joy and enjoyed by us all especially our dog. It was a great base for exploring the North Devon coastline which we throughly enjoyed. This is my twelth year with helpful holidays and I was sad to hear they had merged with a large company-they were great as a family run business.”

    Miss Smith, Normanton, June 2018

    • “Great family home and setting that lends itself to a relaxing restful holiday. It is also an ideal base to explore the surrounding areas from. It is equally perfect for just 2 people as it is for a family and friends gathering.”

    Sanders, Falmouth, June 2018
