  • "This was the perfect property for our large family group ages from 4-70- wonderful space and great views and a real sense of history."

    We all loved it.

  • "The house is beautiful and very well appointed."

    We were blessed with good weather on our stay and made the most of the garden as a result. The beds were really comfortable, as was all of the house. The star of the show however were the views. On a clear sunny day the view of Castle Drogo and the countryside was beautiful. It was a bit tricky to find the house but was worth the trip!

  • "A lovely comfortable property with magnificent views and grounds, although a little TLC outside would not be amiss, for example it was a pity the water feature was not working which was disappointing."

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear you found Sandsgate to be a comfortable and lovely property with beautiful gardens. The water feature in the garden is working but it turned off for the safety of the little guests. There is an on/off switch that allows the guests to control the fountain and the explanation on how to operate it is found in the welcome book. We hope you will visit Sandsgate again in the future.

  • "Sandsgate is fabulous."

    We had a lovely week, there were 10 of us and the house was spacious enough for us all. The beds were super comfy, all bedrooms were delightfully decorated. A great size kitchen/diner with the most amazing views over Dartmoor. The main sitting room had a huge TV and access to Netflix which the kids loved in the evenings. All in all a beautiful and comfortable house. We would definitely recommend Sandsgate and will be booking again soon.

  • "I stayed for my 40th birthday celebrations and this property was just amazing, the views are just stunning, the house is modern with a feel of comfort county vibes and all the bedrooms are big and very nicely done."

    The kitchen and dining area was perfect for me and my friends to host a large dinner and the outside space is very calming. I’m for sure going to book again next year as it was perfect.

    Fire pit a bonus which we enjoyed most evenings. A bbq would have been good but we took our own as we noted there wasn’t one. Everything else was perfect thank you.

    Stunning location, incredible views, beautiful grounds with excellent facilities. The house was immaculate with lovely touches of fresh flowers in the main reception rooms and every bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of room for everyone. A perfect gem!

  • "We love Sandsgate and have been several times, but there is one improvement worth considering."

    The views are beautiful but of course showers and rain are frequent and as there is no cover it means sitting outside is disrupted or sometimes not possible. Could a gazebo or awning or similar be erected to take advantage, don't think it needs heat personally but power might be an idea.

  • "This property is a hidden gem in a fantastic location just as you enter the Dartmoor National Park."

    The views are out of this world and you truly feel like you are completely isolated from the rest of the world which is exactly what we had hoped for. There was bags of space for our group with all bedrooms being more than sufficient in size, a games room, a large lounge area and the enormous kitchen was suitably well equipped. The gardens were fantastic for our young people to explore aged 6-8. There it's lots to do and see locally and we enjoyed walks to Chagford and Sandy Park, a walk from Castle Drogo to Dewsteignton and Fingle Bridge. A little further afield we travelled to Dartmeet and Spitchwick for a picnic and kayaking, Dartmouth for some crab fishing and Saunton Sands Beach on separate days. There is so much to do from Sandsgate and we look forward to hopefully returning again one day.

  • "It met our expectations because we have hired it through you for 9 years!"

    !! The house is outstanding and is ideal for our annual family gathering. Standing in 18 acres it offers so much for children and adults alike. If you like walking in the countryside and enjoy the hospitality of the people of Chagford this is the place for you.

  • "We had to book half term as my son is a teacher, but on arriving the area didn't have anything open and we still had paid half term prices."

    Anywhere we had to go we had to travel out of the area. We thought Chagford would be more accessible but the road in is very narrow and not suitable to drive at night time as if you meet traffic at times you would need to reverse to let other cars past and this was difficult in the dark. Nearest decent supermarket is in Oakhampton which is quite a drive away. (Co-op and Waitrose) As for the house it was perfect for our large family and as the weather was against us we spent a lot of time entertaining.

    We are sorry to hear that you had difficulty getting to the nearby stannary town of Chagford. Our Devon country lanes, can be quite narrow in places. There are several different routes into Chagford, one of them along the A382 to Easton Court, where the roads into Chagford are wider with passing places. Chagford has a wide variety of shops which include a Spar, hardware store, butchers, florists and a delicatessen. Okehampton a 20-minute drive away along the A30, has three supermarkets, a Coop, Lidls and Waitrose. Property Owner

  • "The house was in its own grounds and the views were spectacular , very modern interior and very clean."

    It was nice to have the full sky package however the broadband was very slow but probably due to the remoteness. We saw the deer in the garden which was a nice sight.

    Far exceeded our expectations from the pictures. Very well equipped and clean. Just a couple of minor points; there was only 1 dishwasher tablet and there was no milk (I have never been to a house on your books or the books of any other company that did not at least provide a pint of milk to get you started).
