We had a wonderful week at the simply stunning property that is the Retreat! Lovely grounds and so much to do - an amazing break
A great time had by all, the children loved the facilities specially the hot tub. Peter and Emma were so friendly and helpful we couldn’t have had a better time in such beautiful surroundings.
Thank you for a wonderful stay in Gitcombe house. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the house beautifully decorated and furnished and we loved the indoor pool and tennis court.
We loved staying at Gitcombe house. It is the perfect of both world in terms of location between countryside and seaside. The facilities are just amazing with indoor swimming pool, sauna and soft play area, jaccuzzi outside with stunning views, tennis court and playground. The kids loved it and parents too as you can definitely relax there. It is very welcoming and the scenery grabs you even before arriving just with the narrow country lanes. It is gorgeous and we had a fantastic time with the sun shining for 4 days on top of it!! Beautiful!
Perfect short break for 3 generations! Idyllically situated.Lots to do for 3 and 5 year olds and good walks for grandpa.
this is our 5th visit so fair to say we love the location and the children always meet friends (many also returners) to have fun with. Our first time in Haytor, the bedrooms were good but the living room was a bit cramped and the heating in the en-suit didn't work so was rather chilly. Otherwise nothing to fault, we love it!
Comfortable, well equipped and great facilities for families. We had a lovely holiday there and would go again.
Set in idyllic countryside. Walked each morning from the property. We were left to ourselves which suited us but received text messages offering assistance if required. We met Peter O'Brien in the grounds on a few occasions and he was very friendly and helpful. The accommodation is of a high standard. Very clean and comfortable. Peaceful. Splendid views from all windows. I used the pool and hot tub every evening and was mostly the only one there (first week in May). We travelled each day to our chosen activities; beaches, Nat Trust properties, boat rides, shopping. A lovely break. Would defin...more
The garden house provided an ideal layout.Little extras such as bath mats,mirrors in bedrooms and extra wall sockets are required.
