“An absolutely fabulous house for a family holiday”

Ranscombe House has been the best ever holiday house we have ever stayed at. All the bedrooms are en suite, there are plenty of towels and masses of crockery and cutlery and glasses etc as it used to be a small hotel. It is only a couple of minutes walk down the hill to Brixham harbour and town where there are lovely cafes, pubs, shops and of course .... crabbing! Moira and Richard the owners are lovely people who ensured our stay was everything we could have wished for. The garden was great for drinks and barbeques and tree climbing for the grandchildren.

Liked best: The location and facilities
Liked least: Nothing at the house but Holiday lettings and associated middlemen made communication very difficult and I never received travel instructions. Fortunately Richard the owner was always available to speak to.

“Good location and great house”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Every year a gang of us go away for a long weekend. Ranscombe House more than suited our needs for 13 adults and 3 children! Great location, 5 minute walk to Brixham harbour and the house was large enough for us all! No TV in the main lounge/dining area but this meant we all had to sit and talk with each other and play cards! Would definitely recommend.

“Great house - ideal location”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Ranscombe House was a superb venue for our family gathering one weekend in March - a group of 20 with an age range of 1 to 87 years. Most bedrooms have sea views, all have en suites and the harbour is situated just a short stroll away. The communal rooms were spacious, comfortable and offered various relaxing areas for our number. The only down side was the weather, it was cold and misty spoiling the sea views and preventing us using the garden and verandah. However, everybody had a great time thanks to this very welcoming home.
