    Mike, Jane and family all very friendly, welcoming, kind and helpful. From delicious scones, jam and cream, fresh flowers and dog treats for our young labrador, well equipped kitchen, barbecue and hot tub - they have thought of everything!

  • "Property located in Central Devon."

    Quiet, rural area with a 40min drive to either North or south coasts. A perfect location for nighttime star gazing. Pub close by with two convenience stores. Weather wasn't brilliant - but that's England for you! Slightly disappointed with a stored caravan being used by people close by disrupting our privacy plus the gardener working with noisy petrol tools from an early hour forcing us to change our plans and go out for the day. Apart from the latter two incidents, the property was well presented, comfortable and the hot tub was a welcome feature.

    Thank you for your feedback we are sorry the gardener disrupted your plans on Tuesday he doesn’t normally start before 9:30 am and we try to keep his noise level to a minimum. The caravan is located by the car parking away from any windows of the Stables. We are sorry this impacted on your stay. Property Owner

  • "We had an absolutely wonderful week at Hope House Stables."

    Mike, Jane and family are excellent hosts who were always happy to chat and answer the many questions we had about the local area, places to go etc. The house is beautiful and we felt really comfortable and at home. Delicious scones for a cream tea were waiting for us as we arrived, plus treats for our dog. The hot tub was lovely and beds / sofas very very comfortable! Within walking distance of the house is a lovely pub, two well stocked shops and there are local food vans that visit in the week. A lovely peaceful location, with easy access to North and South Devon. A visit to Appledore for crabbing, as recommended by the hosts, was the best day of our holiday. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property and would definitely go back. Thank you!

    Thank you for your generous remarks, we are so delighted you enjoyed your stay at Hope House Stables even though the weather wasn’t that kind to you. We are glad you had an enjoyable holiday and managed to see some of the wonderful locations within a short distance of us here in Witheridge. We’d love to welcome you back in the future.

  • "We have had a lovely stay at Hope House Stables."

    It is a good base for visiting both north and south Devon but if you want to be nearer either then it might be better to book a closer accommodation. The hot tub was lovely after a day of walking/ visiting other places and the garden is so peaceful and relaxing. The hosts are excellent and the fresh scones on arrival were delicious. The fish and chips from the take away van on the Friday were delicious. Highly Recommend, thank you.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to point out that being central means you have excellent access to both North and South Devon coasts (within the hour). Even though we are located in a quiet village we do benefit from numerous amenities including dog friendly pub, pizza van, fish & chips van, 2 well stocked shops and easy access to Tiverton and South Molton.
