What a great environment to enjoy a holiday! Superb accommodation in Gitcombe Retreat - a wonderfully designed building with magnificent views and privacy. The grounds are excellent (challenging in terms of gradient!) and the indoor swimming pool is a great facility - a website controlled booking system for the pool would be helpful though (instead of wipe board) to avoid any possible misunderstandings and frustration! A great family holiday and we were only home one day before we booked again for next year!
Gitcombe was such a beautiful place and the owner takes real pride in its up keep and welcoming guests! We had such a lovely holiday and as it only has 8 cottages it’s never busy so we were able to enjoy all the facilities to ourselves each day! Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
Fantastic location, property and facilities. Very keen to come again. The play area and pool/spa were very well maintained and the location was spectacular.
It's lovely and spacious, and comfortable for big families with young children, such as we were. I think it would be right to provide appropriate towels for pool usage vs house usage. I also feel good quality BBQ charcoal and sustainable fire lighters should be provided. It would make sense given how much wood is available for fires (probably more valuable in the winter). Worth looking at regular servicing of the washer and dryer given how much usage they get. The playground upgrade is a great improvement from our last stay in 2020.
What an incredible place! My little one didn’t want to come home. We spent a lot of time around the cottage due to the two amazing pools, hot tub, sauna and play areas. The cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed for a 3 and 1 year old (cot, changing mat, high chair, toddler toilet seat, bed guard and baby bath) There was even buckets, tennis rackets and crabbing equipment to borrow. Peter and Emma were so helpful, we will definitely be back!
Loved everything about our stay in the Meavy Cottage. Didn't want to leave and will definitely return. Our little boy has asked to come back every day since we got home.
This was our second visit to Gitcombe and it was wonderful to be back! We relaxed very quickly with the help of the peaceful, beautiful grounds, the pools and especially the hot tub overlooking the most glorious views. Thank you again for such a wonderful stay, we’ll see you next year.
Our family of 4 (kids aged 5 & 8) enjoyed an idyllic long weekend at Gitcombe and have already recommended it to many friends and family. The estate is beautifully maintained, stylish and luxurious. The kids would have spent the whole times flitting between the indoor pool, hot tub, outdoor pool and play area if we'd let them but we did manage to lure them away a few times and enjoyed a fun-filled day at Woodlands Adventure Park (only 8mins away in the car) and a fabulous fresh seafood lunch overlooking the boats at the Anchorstone Cafe in super pretty Dittisham - An absolute MUST on a sunny ...more
