Perfect cottage, ideal location

  • 5 of 5
Stancombe Lodge was delightful, clean, homely, and in a great location. Our 2 and 6 year old sons loved the pool and the playroom - in fact we had to drag them away crying to go to the beach! Our boys also loved the stream that ran into the pond (fenced off), after breakfast their favourite activity was to float balls down the stream. Great beaches within easy reach - we loved Mill Bay (National Trust beach). It was also fab to have an area out back where we could hang up wet towels after the beach. It was also very easy to deal with the owners, ask any questions and details on how to arrive were received promptly. The only thing I'd recommend is to have a visitors comments books as sometimes you can get good recommendations from previous visitors - it may have been at the bottom of the magazine/leaflets basket but we never made it to the bottom of it!

Review for crocus stancombe manor

  • 5 of 5
The hamlet was just as is shown in the photograph with very well trimmed gardens.The property was very clean and well maintained, there was everything you needed in the cupboards. The shower in the bathroom was powerful with plenty of hot water. All the facilities were in close proximity. The countryside is really stunning with lots of lovely walks, and the pubs roundabout are pet friendly. Overall I would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all for a quiet break. Thank you very much.

Fantastic holiday in the Lodge

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week in this property. It was very clean, well equipped and everything had been recently renovated, particularly the 2 en-suite bathrooms. The patio at the front is lovely for eating outside, and it's location - right next to the pool - was a big plus for our swimming-mad toddler. The site is quiet, friendly and very pretty. Another great facility is the games room, which has a pool table, table tennis table and also lots of things for younger children - play kitchen, toy garage, games, books, jigsaws etc. Perfect! We will be back very soon.

Stancoombe Lodge

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the lodge for a long weekend in October and it was lovely. Everything was spotless and the kitchen was well equipped. The dishwasher was great and a new experience for me. The pool was lovely and everything was so peaceful. We had 2 children aged 7 and 2 they thought it was great, they loved to run around.
We would definately return.

Crocus

  • 5 of 5
Crocus was the base for our family of 4 holiday last June (at that point the boys were 3 years and 9 months old). The eldest would have happily not left Stancombe and spent the whole day in the pool or running around the lawns. We had stayed at stancombe several times before the cottages had be sold off and had found the porperty excellent then; and were pleased to still find an excellent standard. As noted with a young family the facities on site are perfect, pool, tennis courts, play room, BBQ & Picnic tables in listening distance from the cottage. The only thing lacking in the cottage for us was a washing manchine. It also stands as a good base for traveling around the area, which has wonderful beachs and excellent pubs! A fantastic part of the country to holiday in.
We plan to return again this year.

Brilliant South Devon base for active families

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Lodge with three boys (9,8 and 5) for a long weekend in October. The accomodation was comfortable with a well equiped kitchen, and the sunny living area and patio were perfect for lazy breakfasts.
It`s a great base from which to explore the coast but what makes it special is the wonderful opportunity for the children to roam safely in the grounds, for the whole family to use the full sized tennis court and at the end of a busy day (or even at the start as well) to use the warm indoor pool - which we often had to ourselves.Highly recommended.
