  • "Beautiful property and well equipped."

    Garden was perfect for a sunny evening very quiet and private. It was disappointing there was no welcome pack, milk, wine etc especially as the local shop closed at 5pm and earlier on Sunday. Thurlstone village is very small and quiet, the hotel only caters for its own guests and the local pub was definitely not suitable for children. The local shop was nice but again opening hours were fairy short. Kingsbridge isn’t far in miles, but due the the roads being so narrow everything seemed to take a long time to get too. We also didn’t find many places to eat out. If your looking for a very quiet holiday with nice walks then this is for you, however if you want a little more and have children then personally we needed more.

  • "Lovely property, great master suite, plenty of space in the kitchen for 8 people and in a nice village."

    What more do you need?

  • "Homefield House is an absolute find!"

    Both bright and airy as well as large enough to comfortably sleep 8 people. The house lacked nothing in terms of equipment and the standard of decor is very high. All the soft furnishings were beautiful and the attention to detail was excellent. We loved having the open fire every night (take your own logs), and we had a patio with seating for sunnier days. There are sea views from the end of the garden. Parking for 4 cars easily in a secure gated driveway. Next door to the Village Inn pub, which is superb as well as a fabulous local shop. The coastal path is a few minutes walk and the views are breathtaking. We will definitely book again.

  • "Ideal setting with local amenities nearby."

    The house was very well equipped and extremely clean and comfortable. Very lovely location and not too far to travel to other bigger towns or attractions. Be prepared for narrow lanes and lots of hills. There were some issues with a shower head that couldn’t be used together with doubtful electricity supply to the shaver plug in the same downstairs bathroom. The heating and hot water was lovely but neither was ever on when we woke up. A timer adjustment possibly needed.

  • "Please thank the owners for a lovely stay in a very comfortable and well equipped house."

    We arrived to an indulgent Christmas hamper full of local goodies. A kind gesture. We couldn’t quite figure out recycling or the Christmas bin collection so had to just leave the bin outside the gate as the South Hams council website indicated it should have been collected on our departure day. Only suggestion would be to make clear on description that the fire can’t be used rather than say materials are not supplied and show picture of what looks like used fire.

  • "The house was comfortably furnished and extremely well equipped."

    The accommodation and layout ideally suited our 3 generation family and the garden provided a lovely space to play and relax. The lanes around Thurlestone are narrow but there are a number of beaches within walking distance. For a relaxing, seaside holiday, Homefield House provided an excellent base. Two minor comments - more information / guidance about recycling facilities would be useful and a pint of milk in the fridge would have been appreciated on arrival.

  • "Homefield House is a fabulous holiday accommodation."

    It is very clean and has all the facilities one needs. The house is warm and comfortable. Kitchen equipment is plentiful. There is ample room for 8 people. I was surprised to find very light coloured furnishings and carpets throughout, especially as the property is animal friendly. The garden is large, and if holidaying with children, there is plenty of space for them to play. However, there is quite a steep slope to the rear of the lawn and it is possible for a child to find it's way out of the garden in several places if unsupervised. Saying that, we had a 2 year old, and a walking 1 year old with us and it certainly would not stop us from staying at the property again. The property itself is in a quiet cul de sac with off road secure parking for at least 3 cars. There is a pub and a hotel within 100yds of the property, and a general store within a couple of hundred yards. Thurlestone beach is nearby, which is a lovely large stretch of sand with rocky outcrops. It would be possible to walk to the beach, although I wouldn't attempt it with children, as much of the road has no pavement. Kingsbridge and Salcombe are close by and well worth a visit. You can even get a takeaway delivered to your door from Kingsbridge. All in all, the holiday was very enjoyable, due in no short order by the quality of the accommodation. I would be happy to return!

    I emailed also, without a reply. This is a fantastic house! Gated drive which is a good safe feeling with children. I really enjoyed staying here! I thought the location was perfect between Thurlestone and Bantham. Great beaches and accessible.

  • "We have used Coast and Country cottages on numerous occasions and found the properties and service to be of a high standard."

    This house was great for 8 adults. However the communication with Sykes prior to our holiday was poor - I sent 4 emails and still have had no response - the question was very simple -“ what are your covid 19 enhanced cleaning procedures”. I recognise that you were very busy but to have no response was indefensible to such a simple question. And your website did not include any useful information on this topic. Other than this we had a very good holiday.

    Lovely house in great setting. Only minor comment would be that the lovely rose bush on the patio had not had dead heads removed and they had gone brown with the rain, which was a shame. Also some of the bushes could do with pruning. Apart from that, a great time and would use again.

    For example there was hair left on the carpet in the downstairs bedroom near the table with mirror above (definitely not mine or my husband's - we do not have a dark hair on our heads!) and the downstairs bathroom had black mould around the shower/bath.

    It was very well equipped and was ideal for our two young grandchildren as the garden was so secure. The village was lovely and the Village Inn was a Godsend as we could go out at night without worrying about driving home. All in all a very good holiday home which we would recommend to anyone.
