Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Having spent a very happy Xmas week in Sandalwood, I want to add my voice to all those who have given this property excellent reviews. Please note: the small front garden and outside appearance do not do justice to the spacious and luxurious interior. It really is superb for up to 8 guests.

We have stayed in many rental properties over the years but I doubt if any were as well planned, fitted out and tastefully furnished as this one.

I particularly liked the oak floors and solid oak furniture and my wife was thrilled with the effectiveness of the central heating. It was at times minus 4 C outside but always as warm as toast inside. And the heated towel rails in all bathrooms was a real luxury.

I could go on about all the features that stood out, but an unexpected one was when I went upstairs for a glass of water in the middle of the night (yes, the house is upside down - and no worse for that). The kitchen/ dining room/sitting room is illuminated by very large windows in the ceiling: that night I looked up and it was like being in an observatory. Being in a rural setting there were very few lights to spoil the wonderful view of the stars and moon. Quite magical.

Well done the architect. And well done the owners for everything else.

Just one note of warning. Devon council only collect general household refuse once a fortnight, the bin is not overlarge and there is no nearby "dump". Its as well then to give priority, on your arrival, to the procedure for recycling for then you will find a place for everything.

Great accommodation in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Sandalwood during October half term. This converted barn is perfect for two families to holiday together. It is spacious and clean. It was a mild week but we were surprised to not need the heating on at all as it was so warm. We just used the heated towel rails that are present in all three bath/shower rooms to dry our towels. The younger members of our group enjoyed playing tennis on the tennis court and using the play area. We enjoyed a walk through the Fallapit estate into East Allington and explored the village including the church. This accommodation is ideally suited to explore all of South Devon. We went to Blackpool Sands, Torcross, Start Point, Woodlands Leisure Park, Bantham, Bigbury, Burgh Island, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe. All of these places were well worth a visit!

Liz the owner provided great customer service, giving us all the information neccessary. Overall we would thoroughly recommend Sandalwood and we hope to go back soon!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

As others have said, the pictures do not do the property justice. We were a party of six, including 8 & 4 year old girls and can truly say that Sandalwood had everything we could have asked for and more. It has been beautifully modernised with great attention to detail and the peaceful location, even in August, could not have been better. The children loved the play area, especially the zipwire and the adults enjoyed the tennis. There is loads to do in the area, all tastes being well catered for, but the children especially enjoyed crabbing from the estuary wall in Kings bridge. We can recommend The Codfather in Kings bridge for fish and chips. We were all sorry to leave. Thank you Liz!

Owner's Response: The South Hams is a wonderful area, and Sandalwood is in an excellent position to access all areas, with easy accessibility to the coast, west, south and east. A great rural setting with children's area and tennis court on site. I am so glad to hear that you had a good holiday. Thank you for your review.

great open plan living

  • 4 of 5

SANDLEWOOD is a lovely barn conversion on a rural complex of holiday/residential barns. The house is lovely & perfect for a big family or group. The open plan living upstairs is Light & spacious. There are some fantastic places to visit close by. We particularly enjoyed our trip to Salcombe. we used the park & ride & then took the little ferry across to East Portlemouth to the beautiful sandy beach.

Relaxing mid week break

  • 5 of 5

We booked Sandelwood Cottage at the last minute and quite surprised to find something that looked so nice. The photographs don't really show how lovely it was, really clean and spacious. The cottage had everything we needed plus instructions on how to use everything. It's a short drive from the town and the beaches but if you want somewhere away from it all, this is the place. We had 3 children with us ages 2 - 10 who had a great time, they're looking forward to our next visit hopefully later in the year.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Sandalwood Cottage is delightful. So much more lovely than I dared to expect. It was wonderfully clean, comfortable and cosy. The location is fantastic, the neighbours are charming and the smell of manure really let's you know that you are in the countryside! Our stay could not have been more perfect.
