  • "Hi, Can you please let the owners of the Roundhouse in Bickleigh know that were all starting to go down with Covid since using the cottage at the weekend."

    Kind of inevitable based on the fact such a large group got together, but may be worth asking them to clean more thoroughly as there was still poo stuck to the loo in our room, so I’m not sure it’s the level of cleanliness it should be.

    Mrs RobertsNov 2021

  • "Thank you Brian for a wonderful stay at The Roundhouse."

    It’s a beautiful property in an idyllic setting with plenty of room for our huge family. The beds were so comfortable and it had everything we needed. The grandchildren especially enjoyed the swimming pool and games room.

    Mr WatersNov 2021

  • "It was an amazing property and the owner was very friendly."

    It worked as accommodation for 18 although a bit tired. The seating in the main area was very uncomfortable but we understand that practical furniture is needed. The kids loved the swimming pool and the various dens in the property. The biggest let down was that on arrival you were greeted by a pile of rubbish alongside the property. There is ample space to put the recycling/rubbish away. Also there were no instructions in the property and/or floor plans but I suspect that this might be because of covid. So overall good and we would come back, but there are a few things that need attention, thank you.

    The peaceful private place and the great family experience enjoyed by all ages A big thank you to Brian the Owner & his family

  • "The Roundhouse was a great place for our large group of friends to get together."

    All en-suite rooms, plenty of seating, huge dining table, well equipped kitchen. Would happily stay again.

    Mrs RoseOct 2021

  • "Our stay at the Roundhouse with our extended family was very enjoyable!"

    It is a beautiful property, though we did experience some maintenance issues i.e broken bed base, and broken dishwasher, which wasn’t ideal when there are 13 people staying there! Unfortunately, these issues weren’t fixed during our stay, but we understand that these things happen, and can’t always be readily rectified. I can’t understand why the broken bed base wasn’t noticed before though. I think for the size of the property, then 2 dishwashers would be ideal. There were also other minor maintenance issues, i.e loose handles etc, so I think when time allows, the property does need to have a maintenance overhaul. The place was generally very clean, though I think the floors indoors and patio outside could do with a deep clean. The patio in particular was quite mucky. The area is lovely, and it’s the perfect house for a large gathering.

  • "The place was filthy We found cigarettes in drawers , tissues, broken glass ind sofas, plastic water bottles under bed."

    There were broken tiles on kitchen bathrooms. Some of the kitchen cutlery abs bowls were flaking off paint from the knives. It needs refurbishment and an update to match the cost expectations.

    Mr TurnerJul 2021

  • "A lovely place with great surroundings and facilities."

    Mr GoodJun 2021

  • "Hosts were brilliant, helped with questions before our arrival too."

    Would love to revisit we had children age 4 to 17 and all enjoyed the stay because of the games room and swimming. Also, we really liked the covid rules of only one cottage in the pool so it was like a private pool which was fantastic. Felt like a home from home, lovely rural setting but not to far to drive to get to Torquay or Salcombe. added bonus of the new play area , very enjoyable relaxing break

    Mrs SimmsJun 2021

  • "Fabulous cottage, great hosts, definitely recommend this cottage."

The property

The Roundhouse is a huge and splendid house converted from a barn.

With seven en suite bedrooms and a private little annexe, it makes sociable and flexible accommodation for a wonderful big gathering of friends or family.

The grandeur begins as soon as you step into the main hall, the height of the house with vast rafters.

The impressive open plan living space stretches the width of the house.

Cook in the well equipped kitchen area, then eat all together around the long oak and stone table below designer lighting.

Afterwards, snuggle up together below the big lofty oak beams around the wood burning stove and watch a family movie on the home cinema system.

On the same level are two of the comfortable bedrooms at either end of the house.

For enjoying a quiet book or the countryside views, climb up the vertical ladder to another comfy seating area on the mezzanine.

Children can gather in their own den on the ground floor with a TV and fun piano.

You will find five more bedrooms on this floor, all good sized and with French windows off the master double.

The annexe is ideal for anyone who loves a little peace and privacy, with exterior entrance and comprising a big en suite family bedroom with comfortable chairs, TV and drinks making facilities.

Outside is all the activity you could wish for, with the shared splendid indoor pool, play area, games room and the farm walks to enjoy.

The Roundhouse also has its own big private sunny terrace at the back with furniture and barbecues and steps up to a lawn and a pretty meadow area to the side for running and chilling out.

The Roundhouse is a very special and thoughtfully designed house to welcome everyone.

Note: The Roundhouse is situated on the same Bickleigh Farm as Oak Tree 976220, East Bickleigh 976183, The Hay Barn 976197 and Swallows Reach 976144.
