    • “We arrived to find a big spacious and very comfortable house. There was a bottle of nice local wine to greet us and we had everything we needed for a lovely holiday. I cannot recommend Farthingfield enough, it was the best holiday accommodation we have experienced and was an ideal base to explore the local area which included Salcombe and Dartmouth. South Pool is a lovely village with lots of character, friendly residents and an excellent local pub (The Millbrook). There was plenty of quirky art décor inside the house and with good views across the creek made our stay all the more interesting and enjoyable - I would recommend to anyone.”

    Mr Underdown, Hook, July 2018

    • “Very friendly village with great pub.”

    Mrs Stewart, Nottingham, June 2018

    • “The house is perfect for our large family group and close to Kingsbridge so very near to local facilities. We had stayed here once before and the house itself did not disappoint however there were a few niggles we had not experienced before. When we arrived the storage heaters had been turned off and it took at least 24 hours for the very large house to warm up! The freezer we had hoped to use was totally iced up and unusable and also we received a lovely ‘thank you for staying’ note offering a complimentary gift but there was no gift! We advised the owners on leaving that they should probably speak to their management company as we definitely felt a bit let down at the start of our holiday in spite of it being in a fantastic house.”
