    Great location as well with interesting walks from the house and visitor attractions just a short drive.

    It’s perfectly located to enjoy the canal and walk along the path. The house and kitchen are well stocked and comfortable. There are good train and bus routes, which suited us well. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend and would go back again.

    The owners greeted us when we arrived and couldn't have been more helpful. We particularly enjoyed the sheep in the field next door and the horse-drawn barge trip. Had the weather been more favourable, we would have made more use of the spacious garden area.

    The property was perfect for all the family, the games room kept the teenagers happy and there was enough space for the little ones. Beautiful garden and the canal behind the house, where you can walk along the canal. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen and a large dinning table so we could eat together. The owners were lovely and we felt welcomed.

  • "Valley house Its an absolutely wonderful cottage with plenty of space for everybody to enjoy their self’s."

    Our party of 12 which included my three grandchildren had an absolutely wonderful time exploring and playing in the large garden. It is an ideal cottage for big celebrations and Ken and Anne the owners are always on hand to help with any queries. The location is ideal for exploring the surrounding areas and its very picturesque and peaceful by the side of the canal. We are definitely looking to coming back and staying again.

  • "The house was well located for our visit and the location was very pretty."

    We enjoyed our stay and the stand outs were the beds and the room sizes, it was well suited to our family of children and adults. The downsides that the owner may want to look into are the dishwasher (very tired and did not really wash at all), the second point being the electric shower was connected to the other water feeds in the house so ran scalding hot or freezing cold to the point of not be safe to use. Otherwise a very good property, although the pricing was in my mind a little steep for the actual quality of the property, it is reaching the age whereby a make over may be in order.

    Thank you for your feedback. Both issues have been sorted. Thank you for highlighting. Property Owner

  • "Lovely break in a lovely location."

    We spent a week here with our children and grandchildren. The weather was good to us, so we made much use of the fantastic garden. The house is great, it just went on and on, could probably do with some updating though, as looking a bit tired in places. The kitchen had everything we needed, and there was plenty of space for us all (party of 9). The hosts were very friendly, offering assistance if needed. The ‘games room’ consisted of a pool table and tv, after talking to the owners, we were told that because of Covid, a lot of things had had to be removed.(Wii, games, books etc). It would have been lovely to have had a few more options here, hopefully this can be rectified soon. This said, we thoroughly enjoyed our break, and would love to return at some point! (If they will have us!)

  • "We couldn't have wished for a more ideal place to stay."

    The house was beautiful and big enough for our 3 families. The children loved playing in the large garden, while the adults just enjoyed the peace and quiet of the conservatory. The tow path was right alongside the house offering lots of walks, and plenty of wildlife......swans, ducks, fish, rabbits......all seen on our walks. A pub at the bottom of the lane, and a Farm Shop half a mile away.....what more could you ask for. The owners of the house were lovely, we met them over the weekend, assuring us that if we needed anything they were on the end of the telephone. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay there again in the future......

The location is very secluded with lovely views, and being immediately next to the canal towpath gives immediate access to peaceful walks. As others have commented, Anne, the owner, is extremely helpful and considerate. We would love to come back to see the area in spring/summertime!

The property

This big detached house is situated on the banks of the canal in Halberton at the end of a no through lane.

With its private waterside setting, it is a fabulous place to relax and watch the world go by on the water and towpath.

From the porch, head through to the oak-fitted kitchen with its little breakfast table for morning coffee, a well equipped room for preparing family meals to enjoy in the dining room whilst you observe the canal life.

For sitting comfortably, you have a choice of the sitting room with its glass door to slide open to the garden, or the conservatory with comfy seats.

For anyone who doesn't want to tackle the stairs there is one ground floor twin bedroom and a bathroom, or head upstairs to four more bedrooms with some lovely views of the canal and the Blackdown Hills.

The children will love the games room which doubles as an optional bedroom for alternative sleeping.

The garden is private with lawns, a terrace, summer house and gate to a charming seating area with picnic benches beside the towpath.

Needless to say, a barge trip on the Grand Western Canal is a must, or why not bring your own boats to launch at Sampford Peverell and moor them outside the house?

You can fish outside with a licence and golf and boat, canoe and bicycle hire are available locally.

North and south coasts make easy day trips, or explore Exmoor and Somerset from this central location.

Valley House is a smashing house for watching life float by or touring the area.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
