  • "Some issues with cleanliness of the property, which we raised with staff onsite."

    Comfortable property, 4 adults and 2 children for the week. Beautiful setting, peaceful. Plenty to do on site and in the local area. Onsite staff were fantastic in their recommendations and general hosting skills, would recommend Kingslake as a great destination. For us it didn't warrant a 4 tick rating from Sykes, a decent 3. Could be elevated by simple touches that others have mentioned like extra bin bags, toilet roll, hand soap etc. Small things that seem to come as standard with most rental properties now. Lovely welcome of cream tea though.

  • "Cottage was perfect and really comfortable."

    The surrounding countryside was perfect and really peaceful and in all a pretty special holiday despite the weather. However, more than one tea towel and bin bag would have been useful.

  • "We had a lovely stay recently."

    The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc. It would have been nice to have a dishwasher as there were 8 of us staying however this would not put me off going back. The on site restaurant served really good food and my husband really enjoyed the fishing.

Settled within the Ruby Country, you can expect to find tranquil lands all around, with plenty of beautiful scenery and nature to uncover. In close reach you can find the Dartmoor National Park, offering its visitors even more wonder in the form of wonderful archaeological sites, an abundance of wildlife alongside outdoor adventures such as climbing, horse riding, canoeing, cycling and more, there's so much to see and do here. Venture north to find the coast and all of its excitement, with Bude being home to golden, sandy beaches with opportunities to try out surfing, or enjoy a leisurely game of golf as you soak in your scenery before enjoying a celebratory dinner in one of its waterside restaurants. Perfectly positioned for exploring the coast and countryside of Devon, Halwill Junction is a true gem of a settlement.
