5/5 Excellent

Wonderful property in an fantastic location.
We were 2 families with teens - and 2 dogs. Lovely welcome and plenty of lovely extras which I included a beautiful home made cake! Perfect for all of us - room for the teens to do their thing and adults theirs! Plenty walks on the doorstep and the local pub within 10 min walk had lovely food and the landlord was so friendly and couldn’t do enough to accommodate - we went to the local weekly quiz and had a great night. The owners were so helpful - we did have an issue but it was resolved immediately and we were treated to a last night BBQ on top of a hill ! A big hill - what a wonderful end to a lovely week. Ideal for dogs too - even our springer could roam freely in the garden and not escape. Highly recommended. And a hot tub ! What more could you ask for !?

perfect escape
We all loved this house, which is well laid out and equipped for a family get together and very spacious. It's a great combination of a traditional, big house and modern fittings - plenty of hot water, great kitchen etc. Walks from the door on to the moor, and wonderful views. Amazing starry skies. We'd love to come back one day.

Great Family Break
We were a group of 6 adults, parents, sons and partners and one grandson. House is very well equipped and spacious and feels like home. Lots of downstairs space and comfortable bedrooms plus 3 well appointed bathrooms. Great country garden with hot tub and very good undercover outside dining. Manaton is quiet and rural which was what we were after. Once you have the hang of the roads it is easy to get around, but you will need to be ready to use passing spaces. There are good local pubs for lunch and evening meals. All in all we had a really good family time together and would thoroughly recommend.

Away from it all
Just back from a week in this beautiful property. James met us on arrival & told us all the basics we needed to know. The children were straight in the hot tub, which was ready & waiting to be used! The kitchen is fully equipped & easily big enough to cook for 8 people. We were touched & grateful for the homemade cake, eggs & bacon/sausages which were left for us. These were eaten very quickly & were delicious! The weather wasn’t on our side (good old British summertime) however we still managed to get out & about most days. The property is remote & a car is essential if you want to do more than walking on the moors. Lanes can be narrow in places however it’s easy to use the A roads to get around (even if takes about longer). We travelled to Plymouth, Holywell Bay (Surf Club) Torquay, Paignton (quay west water park) & Bideford (Ultimate Adventure park) as-well as Dartmoor Prison Museum. The house itself is very well kept & it was easy to communicate with Janes & Sally for any minor issues we encountered. There is zero phone reception so having WiFi was a must, especially with teenagers!! Having Sky TV was an added bonus. I’d recommend this property & would like to thanks James & Sally for hosting us.
