  • "We had a very good week staying in bungalow 11."

    The place was spotlessly clean and we had all the comforts of home provided. We used the cafe, restaurant and the swimming pool which were all wheelchair accessible. The whole place was very quiet and restful. I went for some lovely walks around the estate in woods and fields, using the map provided. There are three suggestions for improvements. The first is that my husband was unable to exit the hospital bed on the first morning. This was because the mattress was lower than the dropped wooden bed rail, meaning he couldn't put his feet to the floor without pain. I rectified this by putting one of the twin room mattresses on top of the one provided on the hospital bed. The second was that the chairs in the lounge were too low for a wheelchair user. Again this was solved by stacking two sofa cushions on top of each other which made access much easier. Lastly the shower chair provided in the wet room was extremely low for a man and it was difficult to push due to the rusted up wheels. Once we got used to the adjustments that I had to make, we had a good holiday.

  • "For a disabled person bungalow 11 is perfect in every way 10 out of 10 brilliant."

    Note.. my only concern would be the parking bay are loose stones could be a difficult for wheelchair users and some on crutches because of the slope that runs down. This is the only thing about Harcombe house.

  • "The bungalow was comfortable, but not as well equipped as many properties."

    No facilities to brew coffee at all, and as we don't drink tea....! We bought a cafetiere. Fortunately there was only myself and my disabled wife, but had the property been fully occupied by a family of 5, the cutlery, crockery and kitchen equipment would have been barely sufficient. There is an accessible full wet room and a second bathroom, but the only toilet is in the wet room. On our final evening we had an small invasion of ants and flying ants, but they were swiftly dealt with when reported to Reception.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Harcombe house."

    The bungalow was beautiful and clean and access from car to bungalow was good for a wheelchair. The gardens and views were stunning we would definitely recommend to anyone

  • "The stay was wonderful, the bungalows, grounds and facilities were incredible and the staff team was helpful."

    This is a relaxing, mindful place to stay with easy routes to visit Devon. Bungalow 11 is fully accessible but only the double bedroom has space for a wheelchair or mobility aid, the twin room has very little room to move. Bear this in mind if booking as a family. The kitchen and lounge space is spotlessly clean and easy to manoeuvre around on a mobility scooter. The hoist in the pool is simple to use and the water is warm enough for a disabled person to relax in. All in all, this is a perfect place to stay as a family or with elderly parents as I did. Plus, your stay helps support The Firefighters Charity, win win.

  • "We booked this property as it said it was easy access."

    From looking at the photos, it seemed ideal. It may have been ideal for people in wheelchairs but it was not ideal for those with some mobility. It could have been so much better if in the wet room there were some simple handrails to hold on to around the shower. In the bedroom was a single hospital bed that moved to help you out. It also had bars to keep you from falling out. We had to remove the bars so my Mum (84) could physically get onto the bed. Because the bed had a plastic cover over the mattress, she became too hot, was unable to move herself as the bed was a single and not wide enough, and by the end of the week had bedsores and very tired from lack of sleep. It was a real shame that a wider bed was not available for us to book. In her bedroom, the main light could only be switched on /off by the door which meant she had to try and get into bed, with the aforementioned troubles in the dark. Please put a pull light switch near the bed. It would have been do much better if plug sockets were higher in that room and that there was a bedside table available. We ended up using one of the chairs from the dining table. Aside from the problems for someone with mobility issues, we did find some of the equipment in the kitchen rather restrictive. For a property that could accommodate 6, the saucepans needed to be much bigger and there were literally 6 plates and 6 dishes. It would have been better if we knew to bring even the smallest things such as salt and pepper. On the notes, we were asked to leave the property in the way we had found it. No problem with that request. The property was immaculate when we arrived, but if you make those expectations, please provide us with more cleaning equipment than one J-cloth and washing up liquid rather than us having to go out and buy them OR let us know that we need to bring these things. This all sounds quite negative and it is not meant to be. It was just a few things which if you were able to book alternatives could have made the whole experience much easier and nicer. The place was modern and comfortable. Mum would have preferred a more suitable chair in the living room, but she was able to sit on the armchair without too much effort to get herself out of it. We didn't try the cafe or the swimming pool, again let people know it is closed Friday mornings for maintenance. We would book the property again, if those issues for Mum could be addressed. I appreciated the phone call a few days before arriving which gave us some extra info, but please offer my suggestions and let people know exactly what to expect. I do hope you find these points constructive and are able to implement my suggestions.
