The property

… about a mile from Sherford, along a little used, flower-filled, hedge-sheltered lane, is Stancombe Manor (mentioned in the Domesday Book) set in 21 acres of well-kept gardens (good for children and dogs to explore, picnic benches, barbecue area, fenced duck pond), shared indoor heated swimming pool (42’ x 19’ x 8’6" to 3’6" deep, available 8am to 8pm), sauna (small extra charge), tennis court, snooker room, games room (table tennis, pool table), cider orchards and woodland, pitch and putt, children’s play area, all for you to enjoy. In one of the handsome barns, now converted to accommodation, we let a cottage and an apartment. A tranquil spot for chilling out, with excellent on-site facilities.

The first-floor apartment has very pretty garden/orchard views. Steps up to front door. Inside, fresh, light and contemporary with open-plan living/dining/kitchen (washing machine, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with TV/DVD and pull-down double bed; twin bedroom (linkable to 6’ double) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

The holiday venue was delightful and the surrounding region peaceful and beautiful. We were a family of 5 with 3 young kids. The swimming pool was a firm favourite, as was the games room and there was therefore plenty to keep them amused on the odd day when we just wanted to have a slow day in. When we chose to head out for the day there was a lot of attractions within easy reach. Lanes are narrow and there was at times a lot of reversing to let cars through and the like - part and parcel of South West living in a way but if you are not comfortable with that scenario then do bare that in mind. Otherwise we would strongly recommend holidaying here.
