We stayed for 4 nights in the retreat. It is a beautiful residence: peaceful, spacious and luxuriously appointed. Amazing views. The owners were never far away if we needed anything. The indoor pool and children's play area were great fun which we enjoyed daily, and the rest of the grounds are well kept with nice country walks easily found nearby. The property is close to local pubs and towns. Can definitely recommend the stay, we will return!
A slice of heaven hidden in a valley in a stunning part of Devon. We could relax at Gitcombe as well as head out on family adventures (kids age 7 & 9) - kayaking on the River Dart, walking on Dartmoor, playing on the beach, shopping in Dartmouth. So much we didn't have time to do and would love to come back for! The cottage (Maristow) was ideal, very well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, good showers, quiet, plenty of lounge space, as well as outside patio and lovely views down the valley. Gitcombe facilities were excellent - hot tub, indoor pool, steam room, sauna - as well as a heated outdo...more
A great week at Gitcombe. We were lucky with the weather but even on a rainy day its a great place to stay, close to Dartmouth and in the middle of beautiful countryside with lots of great pubs close by. Peter was great and nothing was too much trouble for him even though he is a very busy man! Swimming pool and hot tub were really nice as was the steam room. Garden House is lovely, very clean and well equipped. We will be back!
Our second visit.Great facilities for families of all ages,children can play on their own quite safely.Ideal for family get togethers
We had a lovely stay at Gitcombe. The place was spotless and equipped with everything we needed. The bed was super comfortable as was the sofa. We really enjoyed making the most of the pools and hot tub, especially early in the morning. The grounds of Gitcombe are beautiful, the landscape is stunning and well looked after, we got to see a few rabbits running around early in the morning.
As ever, another fantastic week at Gitcombe. We love the pool and tennis court and it is perfectly located for exploring Devon which has so much to offer visitors.
We had a lovely week at Gitcombe staying in Yennadon Barn. The site was perfect for children and an absolutely beautiful location. We used the indoor pool and soft play area every day and the booking rota mostly worked well. Yennadon was lovely but we found the living area a touch small for two boisterous kids (we did suspect in advance it might be cosy for us but it was the only property available). Would have been fine in summer with the doors open to the balcony but a little restrictive in Autumn. Otherwise it was lovely although a little attention needed in the kitchen and one of the bedro...more
The place is truly exceptional with the accommodation and facilities set at a very high standard. The estate is excellent for children and we would recommend this for any families. The location is also great to travel to anywhere in Devon. The ultimate accolade for us is that we have booked again for next year which is something as a rule we never usually do.
Stylish and comfortable accommodation in a beautiful location, with great on-site facilities. We had a fantastic time with our extended family, booking three of the houses between us. Friendly and helpful service from Peter and Emma, with everything from advice on local walks/restaurants to swift fixing of the TV, was first class. We were very sad to have to leave! Pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. We can't recommend it enough.
