This was our second visit this year and it is still amazing, we go mainly for the crafts and we fitted in at least two sessions every day of our five day stay. All their holidays are full board so there are hot meals available three times a day as well as free tea, coffee and mince pies. All the...

We all really enjoyed our break away and loved the food. Staff were all very friendly and welcoming and the pool was by far the warmest I have ever been in. With so many activities to choose from that we could not fit everything in. I am visiting again soon and will definately be rebooking.

Love this place, just had our 14th visit and booked for next year already. Suits everyone those who craft, those who like walking and the fit and active ones amongst us. The bedrooms might be small but only ever in them to get changed or sleep. The food is excellent and plentiful.

The Manor House, Okehampton November 2016 Tim and Val have been going here every year for over 10 years, with their daughter Steph and her husband Rob. Having sampled the last few comments on Tripadvisor we would agree with most of them. Yes it’s décor etc. is dated, but where else can you play so many sports and have as...

We have just returned from a two night stay at the hotel with our two children (aged 3 and 6). We have visited the hotel in the past, with our last stay around 8 years ago. The facilities at this hotel are fantastic and the children really enjoyed the softplay areas, swimming pool and slides, crazy golf and ten pin...

Stayed on a two night break and what a surprise! rooms warm, clean and tidy, food well cooked, plenty of choice and all washed down with great wine at very reasonable prices. Played golf with my wife who is just learning and played The Oakwood which was in superb condition and just the right length for both of us. Greens...

Such a shame. Excellent sports and leisure facilities and rooms are comfortable and clean but changing the evening meal to buffet was NOT a pleasant experience. Tables were so crammed together that you could not get out of your seat without bumping into the person behind and as you moved along to end of the table had to keep asking...

I went here for a friend's Hen weekend, as we were attracted by the crafts and activities on offer. We only paid £150 each including full board, which was such great value. The decor was very outdated and the room smelled of bleach and mothballs! But it was clean and the staff were friendly, the food was good and the...

If you want flashy then this isn't for you. If you want amazing facilities, good food, fantastic staff,unbeatable prices and unbelievable fun then look no further. First time visit, (although it would appear everyone else has been coming here for years!!!!).The decor is a bit retro and kitsch, but, after a day in the spa/gym/pool/tenpin /curling /badminton /climbing wall /adventure...
