We were looking for the right place for my Wife to celebrate a special birthday with our 2 children and their families including 4 grandchildren aged between 5 years and just 2 months. The Gitcombe Retreat was just that for a week! Luxurious accomodation with beautiful scenery located in such a peaceful location between Totnes and Dartmouth. There is also plenty to do around the Retreat with it's own hot tub and BBQ on the patio, the indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room and soft play area right next door and the outdoor pool, tennis court and children's play area nearby.

Been going to Gitcombe every Summer now since 2013. We simply love it here. The location is idyllic, the houses all have their own individual styles and the facilities are first class. Add to these the friendly and attentive owners Peter and his Dad Rodney then all the ingredients are there for a top stay.
We had a multi-generation holiday at Gitcombe from 3 years to 91 years and the facilities where excellent for everyone. Beautiful properties in a beautiful location with excellent facilities and a friendly helpful welcome. Many thanks for our holiday.
A wonderfull retreat, excellent for families with small kids. Our three girls enjoyed every minute of it. We had a blast and Peter and Emma are really friendly, hospitable hosts!
Perfect short break for 3 generations! Idyllically situated.Lots to do for 3 and 5 year olds and good walks for grandpa.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Gitcombe. The views of the Devonshire countryside, proximity to beaches and local towns and the relaxed atmosphere of the place, which has not been spoilt with signs, instructions and rules, ensured a stress free holiday. The staff were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We did have an issue with promised equipment missing but this was dealt with quickly and courteously. Both pools and the hot tub with its spectacular views, were a real treat. We had a memorable time.
We stayed at Gitcombe in Yannadon Barn for just 4 short nights in July 2019 - but what an amazing time we had! The site is so well kept, and our barn had everything that we needed - we even had our own private terrace to sit out on each evening. The indoor pool and hot tub where perfectly situated with views to die for, and we spent a couple of lazy mornings there, enjoying time to de-stress and unwind, chilling out with a good book in between a swim or two! The wonderful Maltsters Arms pub in Tuckenhay provided us with the best Sunday roast I think I have ever eaten, and it's perfect fo...more
Comfortable, well equipped and great facilities for families. We had a lovely holiday there and would go again.
Simply the best of the best. We’ve had a super family holiday (third) in this beautiful place and will return again and again. We all love Gitcombe.
