  • "We had a lovely stay in this wonderful house."

    The house has everything you could want and everyone commented how comfortable their beds were too! Nice and quiet and a nice view of the village from the front windows. We were holidaying with grandparents, children and two dogs and it worked well for everyone. The housekeeper was really lovely and accommodating also. It took us a while to get used to the roads as they are very narrow and steep immediately around the property but so long as you are aware and careful all is well. We ventured out everyday and enjoyed visiting the local area and Dawlish, Teignmouth, Torquay and Paignton. Overall a good week despite the great British weather!!

    Wonderful you all had such a great holiday - thank you for choosing Oakhurst. Property Owner

    I loved my stay. The home was immaculate; very well maintained. The only fault I found was the cobwebs in several places and my fear of spiders. I hope to visit again. Thank you

  • "Lovely house in a beautiful valley."

    Great location within walking distance of a lovely village with a great pub. It was a shame the top bedroom had no blind on one of the velux windows so we had to stuff a blanket to cover it to enable the grandchildren to sleep. The lovely kitchen/dining area would have had a great view across the valley but there was an awful large Conifer tree obstructing any view.It was at the end of their neighbour garden so maybe the owner could persuade them to have the tree removed.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you had a lovely stay. The owner is currently looking into blinds for the velux and we hope these will be fitted soon. We hope to see you back again. Property Owner
