the house was beautiful, with stunning views. nothing was too much trouble and the tour around the house was very informative. The swimming pool was amazing and our client whom used it seemed to really enjoy it. Although we didn't get to explore much due to the clients that were with us. I think they had a wonderful time. Have shown the photos that I took to my family. My daughter is thinking about booking. I would recommend this retreat to all our friends and family. Many thanks to you for making us so well come and for all the help you gave us. Best wished Lorraine, Geraldine and Fio...more
We are a family of four (two sons aged 24 and 21) just returned from a wonderful peaceful week at Gitcombe. We stayed in the Coach House, which was the perfect size for us. The cottage was lovely, spotless, comfortable and of a very high standard. The kitchen had everything that you could need and we lit a cosy fire every night. We all loved the indoor pool, steam room and sauna and spent many hours in the outdoor hot tub gazing at the beautiful views and cows on the hill. The pool complex was like a luxury spa and super clean. It is amazingly quiet, with no distant road or airplane nois...more
We had a lovely week stay at Gitcombe. Pluses great facilities, lovely grounds, beautiful house which was very clean and comfortable. Towels and linen really nice. Very rural but still close to Dartmouth. Only slight negative is that the WiFi didn’t work in the property and little to no phone signal however, this was actually a real positive for us! Overall a wonderful stay and would come again
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.
Arrived home from our stay at Gitcombe yesterday, we were sad to leave as we’d had such a lovely time. We stayed in one of the cottages with our toddler who also enjoyed it thoroughly. The grounds, setting, scenery are all so beautiful and we felt so welcomed by the lovely owners and not forgetting Wilson the dog :)
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
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.
We stayed in Haytor, Burrator and Gitcombe Retreat. Reviews separately on the other property sites. The overall setup for a relaxing time away is great-so long as you don't have to be permanently contactable. There is an excellent tennis court and 2 decent pools, see comments later. The accommodation is well appointed and (for the main couple) comfortable but there is not much space and the wifi and mobile reception were poor. The property Haytor is kitchen/diner/sitting area on the upper floor and 3 bedrooms downstairs. It is compact and rather tight for 6 (sleeps 2 adults in a double...more
