Liked least: Too many doors in the house, table was great but bit too big if anything. Would have been lovely to have patio doors onto the back garden.

“One of the best family holidays we have ever had”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This location and property are 5 star as was the service and welcome we received from the owner. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and no expense has been spared with the very tasteful fixtures and fittings. The impressive dining table and large lounge were more than adequate for our family - 9 in total.

My granddaughter was delighted with the well stocked fish pond ( very safe as it was covered with net)

The swimming pool was a great success with the family and the play area , animals and trampolines (3 in total) were used by everybody from 4 to 58.
The weather was wonderful but if it hand't been there was the comfortable accommodation, the gym, snooker, darts and pool in the games-room next to the indoor pool. I thought the tabes and chairs in the adjoining sunporch a thoughtful touch for the snooker widows to sit in and have a refreshment.

We will return

“Excellent accommodation with facilities to match”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Great accommodation with plenty of space for our party of nine. Rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. The owners Sue and John were there to greet us on arrival and fully explained all the facilities. They left us to enjoy our break but were always there if needed. The facilities were second to none for holiday rentals of this kind. Swimming pool was as warm as a bath and so welcome after a day out exploring. Games room with table tennis and pool was well used by most of the party. A great asset for the children was the play area with swings, slides, climbing frames and trampolines plus chickens, goats and rabbits which consumed any waste food that we had. We didn't get to hire bikes for nearby Tarka Trail or use the badminton or tennis courts, but they were available too. Despite other rentals on site, we didn't really come into contact with other parties, so the feeling of seclusion was welcome.
This place is fantastic if you are a small group but comes into its own if you are a large party. It is well located to explore the area and there are some great places to visit. Lynton & Lynmouth are a must visit and the wall to wall sunshine we were fortunate enough to have during our week made it all the more enjoyable. We will definitely return in the future and can fully understand why some people return again and again.
