“Absolutely heavenly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The best holiday rental we have ever been to. Like a five star hotel but even nicer. The host is charming but unobtrusive, the furnishings are exquisite and they literally have thought of every need you might have, from herbal tea bags to table tennis, swimming and even a fire pit in the massive grounds.

“Luxurious, charming and stunningly beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had a large group and stayed here for a memorable 2 weeks. The property is secluded and peaceful with bags of character (you'll see this from the pictures). Everything works well and the standard of fittings, decoration and cleanliness is that of 5* hotels. Each bedroom is different and well appointed and the property couldn't reasonably have more facilities (the highlight is a stunning pool with steam room and jacuzzi). There are plenty of grassy areas around the property and some wonderful walks from the property (do not miss Dr Blackall's Drive - a footpath despite the name - within easy access of the property). There are plenty of separated living room areas enabling guests to find quiet corners. The owner managers are very friendly and helpful but not intrusive.
A few particular points:
1. The roads to and around the property are narrow, steep and with high hedges - not unusual for Devon but the challenge may be novel to those from outside the UK. I imagine some of the hills might be difficult in icy weather.
2. There are no nearby shops so if you're self catering you'd best order online (the owners provide plenty of basics - rather more than you'd expect) or lay in reasonable stocks.
3. The rooms are all wonderful and different but a couple of rooms may not suit basketball players.
4. You will not get a GPRS signal at the property but there is wifi. If you need to use your mobile there is a steep 5 minute walk up to the moor above Ponsworthy.
5. We didn't use the business centre facilities so I can't comment on those - but this property works brilliantly for an extended family/group of friends.
6. The property works well with young chidren and elder people with reasonable mobility (we had an 86 year old and a 6 week old in our party) but the layout may be a struggle for the disabled/infirm (although there is a ground floor bedroom/suite)
