  • “We visited The Clock House in the week of 24th-31st August 2019.”

    Having booked the holiday a couple of months prior, we were very much looking forward to enjoying an idyllic home away from home. Just as we were about to leave for our holiday, we came across a couple of review from visitors who had just preceded us and we were incredibly alarmed by what we read (it's in the public domain). We contacted Sykes to establish what action had been taken in the wake of the recent review. Our review follows the experience with Sykes following this phone call: ...

    Having booked the holiday a couple of months prior, we were very much looking forward to enjoying an idyllic home away from home. Just as we were about to leave for our holiday, we came across a couple of review from visitors who had just preceded us and we were incredibly alarmed by what we read (it's in the public domain). We contacted Sykes to establish what action had been taken in the wake of the recent review. Our review follows the experience with Sykes following this phone call: 1. Upon contacting Sykes and relaying our concerns, they were incredibly amenable. They made contact with the owners and confirmed that all outstanding issues that could have been resolved in the time scale had been resolved. They made several follow up calls, before, during and after our stay to ensure that we were satisfied with the service and accommodation. 2. The owners made the extended effort of contacting us on several occasions, again to ensure that we were made aware of the actions they had taken to resolve the issues. Very warm and friendly 3. We arrived at the property and we can honestly say that it was one of the best holidays we've experienced as a family. The accommodation was beautiful, set in stunning grounds. The house is well equipped, with all you could need to be comfortable. Our children and our parents all enjoyed the property alike. It is unfortunate that this property should have such a blip on it's review record. For our part, we say, go and enjoy The Clock House and enjoy a little home away from home.

About the location

EAST ANSTEY

Dulverton 4 miles; Tiverton 13 miles.

The village of East Anstey lies in the heart of beautiful unspoilt countryside, four miles from the picturesque market town of Dulverton. Known as the gateway to Exmoor, Dulverton offers the River Barle, which flows under a Grade I listed, 3000 year old stone clapper bridge. The town also boasts pretty buildings and medieval winding streets, along with a wealth of award winning restaurants and pubs, quality gift shops and tea rooms. The spectacular North Devon coast is within driving distance with the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth well worth visiting. Spend a day at the wonderful sandy beaches of Croyde Bay, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands, all of which provide fabulous opportunities for surfing. East Anstey is an ideal base to explore the magnificent rolling landscapes of Exmoor and the dramatic North Devon coastline.

Note: This property sleeps a maximum of 8 adults.
