We are a family of four who have enjoyed many happy holidays in the area. We currently live and work in Bedfordshire but plan to spend as much time as we can at Iris cottage

Julian Baust purchased this cottage in 2013

We bought Iris to give us a home within the area that we have known and loved for over 50 years. The beauty of the South Hams is plain to all who visit, with it's rolling hills and fabulous coastline. Great for walks and for those who enjoy water sports and a range of other activities.

Stancombe is a wonderfully secluded, peaceful and calming place- but with lots of amenities and close to lots of wonderful countryside, beaches and eateries.

Beautiful Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I arrived at Stancombe, Iris on a sunny saturday in october. We were in the cottage and unpacked within the same hour. The amazing facilities on site are a bonus along the side classic devon cottage. We had plenty of use out of both the tennis court and the swimming pool, we also enjoyed the golf course and snooker room. The amazing coastal walks were beautiful and we did many throughout our stay. I can safely say that my stay at Iris cottage was one of the most lovely, yet simple, holidays i've have experienced in an awfully long time. I hope to return in the future and I have recommended it to all of my friends and family as the perfect get away and a great holiday. I'd like to thank the owner, Alison for being so helpful and informative prior and following the stay.
I hope to be back in the near future.

A very relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Iris Cottage the first week of November 2011. The cottage provides very comfortable, warm and homely accommodation with everything you need. The kitchen is well stocked, all the bedrooms are a good size and it's a bonus having two bathrooms. Stancombe itself is such a quiet, peaceful place, yet it offers great facilities such as pool, tennis court, snooker room which are in great condition. We went for some beautiful coastal walks, discovered lovely beaches and had some fantastic pub lunches. It was great to finish the day with a swim in the pool at Stancombe. Naturally it was very quiet when we were there in November but I can imagine it would offer an equally quiet and peaceful holiday in peak season as there is so much open space. Overall it was the perfect escape from every day life. I would definitely recommend Iris cottage to friends and family.

Perfect family holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Stancombe several times, but this was our first visit to Iris. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The cottage was very comfortable. We didn't experience any damp problems in any of the bedrooms, but I understand the owners have put in a new ventilation system which appears to be working! Hoping to return for another visit next winter.

Iris Cottage a Fri to Fri rental in S Devon

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday at this site. The cottage was very lovely and well equipped. the only draw back was that the downstairs was a little damp and there were comments form previous users that their asthmatic son suffered from sleeping in one of the two downstairs bedrooms.
The pool is excellent, there was good play equipment outside. Plus tennis courts and a snooker table room. with all necessary equipment provided. Also a few books and games provided in the cottage.
For children there was also a games room with a table tennis table and a somewhat battered pool table. Lovely beaches nearby both sandy and shingle.
A nice touch was that the owners ensure that there is stock of dry food so that you don;t have to rush out the moment you arrive to get those essentials.
