My wife, three year old son and I stayed in Yennadon for a week. Can't really fault it!
Room: Yennadon ideal for us (the lounge/ eating area might have got a bit cosy with 4). Nicely done out, good kitchen, balcony quite private, having a BBQ was a nice touch.
Facilities: Excellent, my son loved the indoor and outdoor pool. Lovely playground- all wooden, not a garish plastic slide in sitght. He was too young for the tennis court but did attempt to play with the basketball kept at one end. The softplay area and pool table is a nice touch if the weather's dodgy. We were outside of the school holidays,but I think the rooms were all full- however it was never crowded.
Area: I didn't really know Devon before and it was a bit of a revelation! Dartmouth was stunning. Use the park and ride so you can stay all day, explore Kingswear and get the steam train to Paignton. It rained for a couple of days so we went to Paignton Zoo and Pennywell Farm. Totnes is worth a visit too.
It is in the middle of nowhere, take a proper map, we relied on the iphone and got lost at first because we had no reception.
