We were very impressed that our video baby... More

We have just returned from the perfect weekend away with friends staying in the Laurels at South Allington House. The accommodation was perfect for such a large group (8 adults, 6 children under 5) and we had plenty of space for everyone. The grounds are amazing and we couldn't have asked for more. The owners were extremely welcoming and accommodating... More

Had a lovely stay there over Easter. There's a lot of space in the gardens for the children to run about, the house was clean and tidy. Of particular note was a large open plan kitchen which suited our large party. Would recommend it.

Big family meeting to celebrate a 70th birthday. We occupied both The Laurels (which has an extravagant kitchen) and The Coach House and were made to feel very welcome by Barbara and Ed. Very clean, comfortable accommodation with large grounds, a joy for the children to run around in. We would highly recommend this venue for anybody wanting a family... More

We have just had the most brilliant 70th birthday celebration for my mother at South Allington house. We were a large family gathering and they made everything so easy for us to organise, nothing was too much trouble, even giving us the size of the ovens in the self catering houses so we could plan what dishes to bring the...

A large house with several types of visitors. The brochure does not highlight that camping is also available so what is expected to be a quite location is in fact very busy in peak season with numerous cars, campers walking across the 'separate gardens' of those paying high prices for self catering accommodation as well as visitors for cream teas....

Fantastic location about a mile from Lannacombe Cove. Lovely old country house and grounds. Very friendly, helpful owners. Room 2, where we stayed was very large, comfortable bed, great view. Total peace at night. Cooked breakfast was very good, with option for cereal and fruit. Highly recommended.

After following signs for cream teas, we were welcomed by an imposing house and lovely grounds. Hopeful, we went inside to order cream teas which is where the disappointment began. There were no signs to where we ordered. We saw what looked like a kitchen and had to knock the door and walk through to a dingy kitchen - where... More
