“Stunning location, beautiful house and pool, all you could need and more.”

The best holiday we have had in this country. Everything you could need for the perfect holiday, We were a family of 6 adults, 3 children, 1 baby and a dog. The house was big enough for us all, we did not feel on top of each other. The owners of this property have thought of everything, even down to the days the weather is bad, we had one bad day of rain and we spent the whole day playing games with the children, we all enjoyed ourselves. We also spent one day cooking and baking on the aga, never cooked on one before, but as there was even a cook book we thought we would try it, scones and clotted cream went down a treat. Having the pool was a bonus as this meant that you could quite easily have spent the whole week without leaving the property. Had a couple of good days out with the information left in the house. Would highly recommend this holiday let and hope i do get to go back.

All I can say is that we want to return! Every year!
The house and gardens were amazing. The facilities available were outstanding, the pool... What can I say... Words escape me.
We had the most amazing break, BBQ'd, played board games and danced around in fancy dress. Totally secluded grounds, you couldn't keep us out of the pool and I slept in a 4-poster bed (off the bucket list now).
Local pub lunch was delicious and Tavistock market was too much temptation for me.
Plus the little home touches, made it really special... The perfect way to celebrate turning 40 and for us to escape family demands, take a break and treat ourselves.

Myself and a few friends have just come pack from Hartwell and there are no faults we could find with this property. It had everything we could have asked for and so much more. The huge table tennis table in the shed and the football table in the pool house were a bonus, and the heated swimming pool is spectacular. We are definitely making it a yearly trip!
