Bealey Court Holiday Cottages
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We stayed in Plum Cottage over Easter weekend and it was lovely. The cottage is really spacious, well equipped and very clean. The master bedroom is ensuite and has a four poster bed. There is another bathroom and cloakroom which is essential for a family of 5.

Upon arrival there was a nicely wrapped bottle of Prosecco with some chocolates and also some bags of mini eggs and a cake!

The pool is big with loungers around and the games room has a pool table, snooker table and air hockey. There are also books and a few games. We went over there in the evening with our own drinks and just put some music on.

The grounds are lovely, the gardens are very pretty and the views are nice. We went fishing in the lakes on three days and caught carp and roach - no prize winners but good fun!

Some people may find the location a bit remote as it is in the middle of the Devonshire countryside but for us, as a long weekend it was perfect as it is the ideal retreat to get away from it all and relax in beautiful surroundings.

A nice touch when we got home was a card to say thank you for our visit and for leaving the cottage so clean.

Bealy Court is the perfect location for a relaxing time. Our cottage was very well presented, spacious and well equiped for a family of four. The swimming pool and on site facilities were maintained to a high standard. These, combined with the beautiful surroundings, made for a perfect holiday. The local villages are within a short drive and offer a range of eating venues and pubs. We would certainly recommend these holiday cottages if you appreciate fine surroundings and really want to get away from it all!

We have just got back from a stay at Bealy Court. We initially booked the Duck cottage but we were upgraded to the Round house for free before we arrived! The cottage was beautiful. I loved the layout and it had everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. There was even a Dolce Gusto machine! We used the swimming pool a few times, which was excellent. However, we only discovered that there was a changing room for the swimming pool down the stairs on the last day! The scenery around the cottage is fantastic, and a saw a few people make use of the free fishing in the lakes on site. We absolutely loved everything about this cottage, except for it's location. To get to any sort of civilisation you need to drive a good 20 minutes down awful country roads. If the cottage has been in a more central location it would have been absolutely perfect and we would definitely go back again. However, because of its remoteness, we would definitely look for somewhere different if we visited Devon again. So if you enjoy driving around the countryside for most of your day then this is perfect. If you're looking for a relaxing and carefree holiday, visiting the sights of Devon, look for somewhere closer to South Molton/Tiverton or Barnstaple.

Returned to Bealy after last year - on what was the coldest Easter for 60 years! So brought appropriate clothing and a pint of Man Up - which is like Horlicks but more Manly. The owners gave us free logs due to the cold and after the first day we could get the cottage up to an OK temperature after taking the chill off, and a fleece over a pully did the trick. The key was, I found, to bed the fire in and keep it in, just like mom and pop used to.

This time was with Children who got into the swing of things, the pool was fine in terms of Chlorine - I have to say, when ever I use a pool I have a wash after anyway (and before as it happens) so I am a little perplexed at a previous reviewers comment about having a shower as cleanliness is next to godliness, or so I am told, and washing after being in the pool is pretty standard?

Just back from South Africa - Why's this relevant. Well I went self catering there and comparatively, the amount of kit you get in the cottages is spectacular, as is the reception on your phone! I have 02 and it was fine at Bealy. My partner had Orange (or whatever it is now) and that could be had in the games room, just so you know. And for internet the pub is 15 minutes away if your that desperate to be on Facebook. Oh, and at least thee is someone to contact and drop off logs. That was not an option in SA!

So yes it was cold, but we had some amazingly crisp, clear days and amazing sky's at night as always, and kids were safe on the grounds, which is a big weight off the mind.

We stayed in Plum for 4 days and was very happy with the presentation of it all. Seemed like there and been a bit of a touch up of the cottages interiors and think a week in the summer will be a definite possibility,

Room Tip: Use the fire - they kick out heat, you know!

This was our 3rd visit to Bealy Court Cottages. Never fails to impress! The kids loved the swimming pool which is heated and provides endless hours of fun.
The log burners in each cottage really do ensure that country cottage feeling, logs can be purchased from the owner for a very reasonable price.
The weather was not particularly good for our stay but the kids still got entertained by the pool table and the air hockey on site. Being able to take the family dog was also really pleasant and lots of long country walks was enjoyed by the whole family.
We found the pool to be chlorinated to the right level for a pool of that size used by all visitors to Bealy.
The barn where the logs were kept was secured with a padlock which shows that the management have a close eye on health and safety. Having previously visited, i would say its common sense to not let your children go exploring around the countryside and of the main site.
Bealy is a must if you want to get away and relax away from annoying emails, and PPI calls to your mobile. There is little signal on various networks but that's the whole point of visiting the country isn't it?
The cottages are clean and presentable and everything you will need is there so you don't have to overload the car. Just turn up with your food and whatever luxuries you personally require and enjoy.

Room Tip: Browse the cottages online and take your pick.

Arriving at Bealy is exciting not only because of the location. But because of the accommodation. The cottages are everything you expect and more. It's location is secluded but not to far from villages around you. Not to far from North Devons amazing coast.

The facilities at Bealy make it the perfect retreat if peace & relaxation is what you want.
No Internet, no reception. Was very much needed and highly enjoyable.

There is lots of historic places to visit. Lots of Tourist hotspots, villages & towns around to make your holiday experiance enjoyable for the whole family.

The heated pool makes for the perfect morning start. Or a great way to end the day!

Driving around there are some amazing sights we spent 2 hours walking along the river walks throwing stones the kids loved it! There are many walking trails which offer amazing views & fun & enjoyment for the whole family!


Would recommend it to anyone!

The facilities at Bealy Court are great for families. Pool, Snooker, Tennis and a Swimming Pool. The pool area was really warm and the pool temperature was ok - although the chlorine level was so strong that an immediate shower afterwards was necessary

The problem we had was that we visited this Easter (2013) and it was really cold. The wall electric heaters had little effect and although we were supplied with free wood after a few days, the house remained bitterly cold.

Some windows did not close properly and it took a while to track down the owner to solve the problem. When we did, we were initially told that Bealy Court was 'a self catering holiday' and that was why we had got no reply from the owner. All we were trying to do was get help with a draught !!

The location is beautiful and remote - right on the edge of the Moors. But it is a good 20 minute drive to get to a decent sized road ( one that doesn't need passing places) and then a good 90 minutes to the North or South Devon Coast

Go in the summer and when you really don't need to be in contact - obviously no wireless and very poor mobile signal.
