    • “What a stunning house, with superb facilities and my only comment would be for shorter people like myself, some of the kitchen cupboards are a little high up and the settees are rather long from knee to bottom. I am being very picky here because it is such a beautiful house in lovely surroundings and Charlie the caretaker is so helpful.”

    Mr Dixon, MARKET DRAYTON, October 2018

    • “It did not exceed expectations as these were already very high because of the lovely photos in the brochure and on the website. The facilities were brilliant with the superb indoor pool and the splendid games room. The ground floor rooms were spacious and very pleasant and everything you might ever need was provided in the house/ The only slight criticismwa we had was that some of the beds could have been larger. All on all we had a great holiday, much enjoyed by three generations of the Chadd family”

    Mr Chadd, HEREFORD, August 2018

    • “The house itself was very interesting & user friendly. The swimming pool & gamesroom were the centre of activity for the children and the different rooms all allowed us to spread ourselves out at times. It was very well equipped, with plenty of cutlery & crockery for all occasions. The views from the terrace were brilliant - enough reason to come back by itself. Charlie the caretaker, was enormously helpful, from replacing a worn tumble dryer to transporting kayaks to the shore.”

    Mrs Harvey, WIMBORNE, July 2018

    • “This property is outstanding, set in a beautiful part of the world, with beautiful views of the river Dart and fabulous wild life. My family and I spent a lovely week here in July, making good use of the pool and the games room on a daily basis. Our party consisted of 10 adults and there was plenty of room to loose each other or just to take time out for yourself. The property was clean, tidy and had everything we needed. This property exceeded expectations and we hope to return in the future.”

    Mrs Allen, Birmingham, July 2018

    • “Booking was easy and quick. Key collection details arrived shortly after booking. Fantastic facilities in the house, never a dull moment or as relaxing as you would ever want. Games room and pool are amazing! Breakfast area/Kitchen, Snug, Drawing room, Games room, Sitting room and two outside patios mean plenty of room for quiet time or big enough space for everyone in one place. Close Paignton and Kingswear/Dartmouth, easy access to Exeter. A short walk through the grounds to the Dart River, where it is possible to explore the foreshore and watch the wonderful wildlife. Towels and linen provided, but so were many other basics which self caterers often have to bring themselves. The Caretaker (Charlie) is very helpful, has great local knowledge and is one of the "cottage's" biggest assets.”

    Mr Brooks, Swindon, June 2018

    • “Second year running for the same week.A real holiday new to some of our guests all enjoyed.A special mention for Charlie who is always available.”

    Mr Hoole, TAUNTON, June 2018

    • “Pictures do not do this holiday home justice! House was fabulous just what our family needed, enough space and plenty of things to do. View are fabulous, pool was very warm which made swimming more enjoyable for all. Shame we only stayed here for one week!”

    Mrs Perry, RUGELEY, May 2018

    • “Charlie the caretaker was very helpful, the website said there were 2 twin bedded rooms which we needed but there was only one but with Charlie’s help and the mattress from the day bed in the annex and extra single bedding we made up a bed on the floor which pleased my grandson so not a major problem but the website needs to be kept up to date, that aside we had a great holiday the house is beautiful the pool, the views, lots of wonderful rooms for everyone well equipped kitchen,we even had a barbecue and the weather stayed good enough to all eat outside. A great place hope to be back.”
