Our first trip to Gitcombe and wow - it was all we hoped for and more. The new, energetic owners are lovely - the perfect balance of low key and around if you need them. Immaculate property - all elements cared for daily- indoor pool, outdoor pool, playground, hot tub with fab views and a superb tennis court to name... More

Our third visit, it's becoming a habit! Have reviewed this before and it's still as good as ever. Very impressed with the new owners. When I mentioned that my supermarket delivery was cancelled due to "being too busy", leaving us in a bit of a mess as the kids needed to eat, plus I couldnt talk to the supermarket as... More

We stayed in the coach house at Gitcombe with our 20mth old daughter and couldn't have asked for more. The accommodation was a great combination of a traditional building with all the mod cons and was clean and well maintained (as were all the facilities). The grounds were very peaceful, you wouldn't have known there were other people there. The... More

We loved Gitcombe. The location is perfect as it is completely stunning countryside all around and you wake up to the sounds of the countryside. However it is still an easy 10-15 minute drive to Dartmouth with all the shops, restaurants etc as well as several lovely country pubs only 5 minutes away. The cottage *Yennadon" was very well kitted... More

We've only been home for a few hours but are longing for the stunning views, a dip in the outdoor pool and the complete tranquility of Gitcombe. We had amazing weather and managed to visit most of the local beaches but there's little need to leave the grounds as there is so much to offer. We felt completely relaxed letting... More

Am loathed to share Gitcombe! We simply couldn't fault our holiday. Our cottage (Burrator) was absolutely lovely - everything was of great quality- comfortable beds, great bed linen, fixtures and fittings of high standard, sofas and armchairs so squishy and snuggly. Even the basics provided (washing up liquid, laundry and dishwasher tablets etc). The cottage had everything you need. The... More

We stayed for a week in May in Maristow and had a fantastic time. The accommodation worked perfectly for 4 adults and 2 pre-school children (who loved their cabin beds). There is plenty of space to spread out and relax and to prepare and enjoy a meal, with terrific views down the valley from the balcony. We found the location... More

This was my family's second trip back and now under new ownership we benefited from a number of enhanced improvements to the accomodation. It ticks all the boxes and in my view is well worth the journey from London.

Staying at Gitcombe turned out to be our first 'relaxing' holiday with the kids - 2.5 and 4.5 years old. The whole place, inside and out, oozed peacefulness. The kids could run and climb energetically around the immense grounds, splash about in the pool and tumble in the soft play. The silence and the expanse made it all very free.... More

This was our third trip to Gitcombe, and we have enjoyed every stay here immensely. The place has just been bought by the new owners and they have really worked hard over the last 6 months to sort out any little niggles (not that there were many to start with in my view). It is a beautiful place and really... More
