We loved Gitcombe Retreat from the moment we arrived on a windy raining night. Lots of space for eight of us to relax, cook and eat together. Our own private hot tub was an additional treat as was the pool, sauna and spa just a few feet away. All the bedrooms were lovely so no squabbling on who gets which. Helpful suggestions for walks to nearby pubs and drives to beaches. Would recommend.
Can only imagine how lovely Gitcombe is in summer, but we booked 3 days at the beginning of January to beat the winter blues and it was the perfect escape. Cosy cottage with wood burning stove, countryside walks right from the estate, and best of all a warm indoor pool and hottub for the kids to let off steam!
The main house was big enough as a base for all family members, although we rented other properties on estate we all congregated in main house.
Outstanding from start to finish. Easy to book, nothing was too much trouble for Emma, who even got in touch before we came to see whether we needed any last minute help or information. We got a lovely welcome from Peter after we arrived, to find the cottage nicely decorated with a Christmas tree. The cottage was spotless and well appointed. The appliances are all in good order and top end. Although the kitchen and living room are open plan, the appliances are not too loud to disturb you. There was everything we needed, even to cook Christmas lunch. The bedrooms and bathrooms are immaculate....more
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 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
Gitcombe is a beautiful haven in the middle of stunning Devon countryside. The estate is maintained impeccably and the facilities are ideal for families/ couples/ groups looking to escape from everyday life and feed the soul. We loved exploring the grounds, getting cosy in our house (Haytor) with our fire. The kids loved swimming everyday and the outdoor hot tub with views of the hills was just incredible. Even in late December we played tennis & explored the many beautiful, local towns close by. Our favourite day was the coastal walk towards GaraRock hotel where we had a great lunch. We...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.
