  • “Wonderful”
    Upon arrival we found Lincombe a very charming hamlet and the stable cottage is clean, bright, airy, warm and welcoming. Parking right outside the cottage is important when we have a little dog with us.

The lounge was very spacious; the kitchen was perfectly adequate for preparing decent meals. Ok, it might need a bit of forward planning for a Sunday roast with all the trimmings for 5 people. The bathroom is a good size with a good electric shower. Bedroom are cosy and warm. All ...
    Upon arrival we found Lincombe a very charming hamlet and the stable cottage is clean, bright, airy, warm and welcoming. Parking right outside the cottage is important when we have a little dog with us.

The lounge was very spacious; the kitchen was perfectly adequate for preparing decent meals. Ok, it might need a bit of forward planning for a Sunday roast with all the trimmings for 5 people. The bathroom is a good size with a good electric shower. Bedroom are cosy and warm. All satisfactory.

As we have no children in our party we did not use the games room. Instead we spent quite a lot of our early mornings and evenings in the Lincombe house garden. The garden was a credit to the owners. It was very well maintained and a perfect spot to admire sunsets. Sitting in the swing with a glass of wine, birds singing nearby, a gleam of the sea in the far corner, that’s tranquility itself.

The owners, Richenda and Kathy, are very friendly people. When we first arrived Kathy came out to meet us and showed us where things were in the cottage and their beautiful garden. Richenda and Kathy would leave us in peace to enjoy our holidays but when we saw them in the garden they were very friendly and would stop to chat.

We were very grateful to them for their help when I had a problem with my car. Kathy even gave up her time and took me to her car mechanic friend straight away and have it fixed. They even offered to put us up for an extra night when the driving conditions were a bit dubious with the strong wind battering the South West Coast on the day we due to come home. Now, how kind and caring was that.

Bright and clean accommodation, central location, beautiful surroundings, friendly and helpful owners. That’s the essentials of a perfect holiday.(
