  • "Valley House was perfect for our group."

    We had the best time staying there. Would definatley be going again and recommend it to friends and family. Had lovely walks by the canal and to the local farm shop. Good location to get to attractions and 30 mins to nearest beach (Exmouth) Owners are really nice and helpful if you need them.

  • "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......

  • "Valley House was the perfect choice for our celebratory family get-together."

    It is very spacious and comfortable. Fabulous table for us all to sit around for our special meal and lots of space outside for the children to play (safe from the canal). 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!

  • "Very happy and enjoyed a great week."

    Beds very comfy and the bedding had lovely fresh feel. Plenty of space for our large family group of 11, all age groups - 9 - 80! Games room a useful feature, and well used. Everything we needed on our doorstep. Enjoyed walks and nature in general. And YES, we did see Kingfishers, several times. All of us would like to return.

    All commented on how clean everything was and how well equipped. Absolutely loved the wildlife in the garden e.g. green woodpeckers, and on the canal where we saw otters and kingfishers. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The local farm shop was excellent.

  • "Valley House is an unique place equipped for large families and sharing a holiday with friends."

    Ken and Anne who run the property couldn’t be more helpful and we enjoyed meeting with them at the beginning of our stay. 12 of us fitted with ample space in the house. The garden is ace, the kids loved it and we even set a tent up for some extra fun for the children. The games room is great and the lounge really comfortable for relaxing, with the latest TV with Netflix etc. too for those rainy days. The dining room table well big enough for 12 and right next to the kitchen. Bedrooms were all very comfortable. The canal walks/cycles were really enjoyed by all. Great access to the Exmoor too. Thanks Ken and Anne

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.
