  • "We had a very enjoyable stay at Garden House and the team were very helpful."

    The swimming pools and grounds are beautiful and we loved making use of them. Regarding the house, it was very comfortable, but we felt there could be improvements. Problems we had during the stay were sorted out very promptly. There was a lot to clean and it was satisfactory, but not excellent. The kitchen cupboards need a jolly good sort out. About 50 wine glasses and two rolling pins but only eight mugs. Not ONE cupboard to put food in for eight. No decent roasting tins. We didn’t use the house outside space much as there was no sun after 1pm. Some of the seals had gone on the windows and need replacing. One under counter oven wasn’t big enough for eight. Furniture was very comfortable and the main living room was great. The windows in the children’s bedroom were very condensated in the morning and the curtains and bedding did get damp. Showers and bathrooms were good. We were disappointed that there was dog poo under the climbing wall in the adventure playground one morning and our grandchild narrowly avoided stepping in it.

About the location


Totnes 4.4 miles

Cornworthy is a picturesque village in the sought-after South Hams area of Devon that dates back to Saxon times. Much of the village makes up part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coastal towns of Dittisham and Dartmouth are nearby and provide excellent opportunities for marine activities and some of the UKs best seafood restaurants (such as The Seahorse). Totnes is also a short drive away, an attractive, vibrant town, which also includes a railway station that provides direct services to London Paddington in under three hours. For shopping addicts Totnes offers an excellent range of small independent retailers and unique shops. The town is famed for its promotion of ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. In the Civil Hall Square you’ll find the weekly market which is held on Fridays and Saturdays. And an Elizabethan market held each Tuesday morning (May-September), when traders dress in Elizabethan period costumes and the Totnes Sunday Good Food Market.
