  • "We have just come home from this amazing place after a big family holiday ranging from 2 two year olds to 2 nearly 90 year olds, The house was immaculate and the gardens had a fabulous hot tub, seating and a bbq ."

    Every bedroom and room in the house were beautifully decorated and very very comfy. For me it was the little touches that made it perfect, every en suite had a bottle of hand wash and enough loo roll for a week, there was bbq coals left for us, games for all ages, tea coffee salt and pepper even cereals to help ourselves too, even 2 kettles in the kitchen , the owners have thought of every to make our stay her perfect, thank you

  • "We were a family of 15 and fitted well into the property."

    Plenty of room, kitchen well equipped with plenty of everything for our large multi-aged family. We brought extra high chairs and cots as only one at the property (our group included 3 toddlers). Maybe a larger pan would be helpful when cooking rice or pasta for such a large family. It is well situated with a local Sainsbury’s and co-op just 5 minutes walk away in the Village. Plenty to do in the area both beaches and places to visit. Would happily come again.

  • "Through no fault of the owners the mobile phone reception was not good even when connected to the wi-fi."

    Unless it was our phones. Some larger pans would be good as boiling potatoes for 15 took most of the available pans other than that it was a perfect location for shops and things to do and see.

  • "A lovely property, well furnished and stocked with everything you could want."

    Location is brilliant for all sorts of activities and vists to nearby venues. The owners are very helpful and left us a number of welcoming items when we arrived. We were very lucky with the weather, but for those less fortunate the owners supply lots of different items to amuse people of all ages, ranging from jigsaws to games machines. Has to be one of the best properties we have booked. There were 15 adults 6 no one had a bad word to say about the place. The hot tub was particularly enjoyed by the ladies in the group daily. Unfortunately, this is such a good property that it will no doubt be difficult for us to book again.

  • "We were really pleased with the property."

    All bedrooms were lovely, good size, all with really nice bathroom facilities. House was very well equipped. We were pleasantly surprised to find hairdryers in each room, although we'd been advised there were none. The hot tub was nice to have and we liked the garden, seemed like a sun trap and sun there until evening. Although there were only a couple of loungers there were plenty of seats. Pleasant walk to town for some of us and good pubs/restaurants by the Downs were nearby, an easy walk.

    A good private garden with hot tub. Just moments along the road are delightful public gardens. Babbacombe front was only a few minutes walk away. Slightly further away great walking on the coastal path and on Dartmoor. Highly recommended!

  • "Had a very comfortable stay in this lovely house."

    Having the Hot Tub and garden maintained daily meant it was easy to use either whenever we wanted to - and we did. The House had enough equipment for all of us which was great, though a cupboard/space just for storing our food would have been useful. We really enjoyed being so close to the promenade, the Tessier Gardens, the Model village and the shops and having leaflets in the house made it easy to find other places to visit. Having our own parking space was a big relief as we had 3 biggish cars between us and parking is at a premium in seaside towns. I would highly recommend staying here for itself and as a good base for the 'English Riviera'. PS would also recommend the Local History society's free walk round Babbacombe / St Marychurch (every Tuesday in summer) - interesting and informative. Thank you

    The facilities are excellent with so many needs catered for. We were a large family group with ages from 2 - over 70 and the owner was very prompt at answering a couple of queries prior to departure. We have come away with some wonderful memories.

  • "Excellent property and friendly owners."

    Very clean and comfortable accommodation. My only criticism would be that the kitchen is so well equipped that there is very little space to store food! Also it would be nice to have your own heating controls rather than relying on the owners switching it on and off.

    Lots of fabulous family memories were made here. The house was just beautiful, clean, spacious & contained all necessary items for a large family like ours. Such a well situated place, we didn't have to travel far for our days out. The owners were kind and considerate and I have no hesitation in recommending this property.

    We found the Hall comfortable and eating together at the large table worked out well. (Perhaps a couple more larger pans would be good). The welcome pack and other little extras were appreciated. We had a lovely time here.
