  • "Been on several cottages holidays and this is the best holiday accommodation I have stayed in, very clean and everything you could require in a holiday home."

    House has some very nice touches like spare snuggle blankets in one of the living rooms (which weren’t required), sideboard with board games in the other. Showers were lovely and no hot or cold issues when they were all being used together, house had all the mod-cons and storage required, house was also finished to a very high standard. Area around the house was so quiet and picturesque, every morning we had two buzzards flying over the back garden. Only negatives about the stay and these are very petty as the house was so good was that we had problems getting the kettle to boil first time and the black tea towels left black fabric bits when using them to wipe up with.

  • "This is the best holiday rental we’ve ever stayed in."

    This house is second to none! In addition to being a stunning location and a beautiful home with plenty of character, it has absolutely every amenity you need. The kitchen had every type of cookery item you could wish for! Everything has been thought of and it feels like no expense has been spared. The landscaping of the garden is so beautiful, we loved spending time outside. The house was clean and little extras such as a tray with biscuits, milk and tea were so thoughtful. We had the most wonderful weekend in absolute luxury. Thank you!

    Thank you for choosing Knowle House and your great review - it is a delight to us when others appreciate the house and gardens. Glad you had such a wonderful weekend. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week in the luxury of Knowle House."

    Everything was of the highest quality and well designed, so it was really lovely to stay in such a well-equipped property. It was located just outside the town, convenient for shopping but also in the country. We would definitely stay again!

    Many thanks for your feedback - we really appreciate it. So pleased you had such a wonderful week at Knowle House. Hope to see you again. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "A stunning house in a beautiful setting."

    The craftsmanship and the attention to detail was impeccable. The grounds are well maintained and the house has everything needed. Nothing has been overlooked and no expense has been spared! My only issue is that I felt the house had only had a light clean. Sticky fingers on the sides and down the fridge. Other than that, we had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend to friends and family. We will be booking again!

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the house and grounds. We were sorry that you felt there were some cleanliness issues, had we been made aware of any issues at the time, we would have been very happy to rectify them during your stay. We are glad that this did not impede your stay and that you had a lovely time. We very much hope to welcome you back again at a future date. Property Owner

The fabulous Roadford Reservoir offers a multitude of watersport activities and fishing opportunities. Okehampton has a prominent medieval castle overlooking a wooded river valley, the Museum of Dartmoor Life and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory: The Dartmoor Line now operates a service between Okehampton and Exeter every hour, 7 days a week.
