We have just returned from the most fabulous week staying at The Retreat as part of the Gitcombe Estate. Luxurious, private, safe accommodation, ideal for kids and with access to great facilities. We were first back in the property post lockdown restrictions and were really pleased with how well organised and safe the complex felt, with extra precautions in place to ensure everyone's safety. The informal booking system via white boards for the pools and tennis courts made it really easy and actually lovely to know that the pool was going to be all to ourselves (especially with three littles on...more
We enormously enjoyed our week at Gitcombe. We were a group of 3 generations, and the views, the pools, the tennis court and the hot tub were loved by all. We took a lovely walk to a nearby pub by the river, and explored the coves of the nearby stunning coastline. Due to C-19 we didn’t want to eat out so cooked all our evening meals in Maristow. The kitchen was excellently equipped for this. Thank you to the delightful owners Rodney and Peter who have created somewhere really special.
The coach house was very comfortable and well equipped, with good downstairs space to spend time as a family when the weather was less good. The Gitcombe estate was immaculate and a very nice place to spend time. The on site facilities were great and very clean.
Absolutely loved the property and the many facilities. The Pool/Spa area was fabulous, it was extremely clean, warm and welcoming. The whole family from 1year old - 91 year old loved it. Tennis courts and outside childrens adventure area provided great fun for all. We stayed in Gitcombe House - An absolutely beautiful Georgian Mansion with masses of space for our party of 9 adults, 2 children and 3 toddlers. The kitchen is very well stocked with all the equipment and utensils you could ever need and the rest of the house is filled with books, dvd's toys etc.... I would definitely recommend ...more
We had a fantastic stay at Gitcombe for our family holiday. The facilities are brilliant and the cottages are very family friendly. The location is rural and inland but a short drive to some beautiful beaches.
It was an amazing holiday, beyond form expected, we loved the place, the cottage was adorable and cozy, all the facilities were better than shown in pictures, we really enjoyed it. Walks around are very beautiful and it is located in an amazing part of England. We will consider it as an every year place to go. :)
We had a very good week this being our fourth at Gitcombe. Everything was as it should be. Peter was fantastic when we needed help on the last but one and last day of our holiday when our car broke down. He was so kind and we don't know what we would have done without his help. The children also love Gitcombe and we hope to return.
We stayed in Gitcombe (Yennadon) as a family of four. The Estate is beautiful and very well maintained. Our children loved both the indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, play area and tennis/basketball courts. It would be enough to just stay on the grounds. There are stunning beaches nearby and we were lucky with the weather. The accommodation itself was comfortable and well laid out. The suggestions for restaurants, beaches and other activities were incredibly helpful. Our children are begging to go back again next summer!
Great location and facilities and helpful owner. Haytor is suitable for 4 adults and 2 small children.
