Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and accommodated 18 of us over a weekend. We had a blast!

The property is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The facilities are excellent (although make sure you take bin bags, tea towels and dishwasher tablets with you).

Before we stayed there, we were concerned about the proximity of the road and the airport; do not be alarmed as you cannot hear either inside the house.

I would definitely stay here again!

Amazing property with masses of space

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this property as a joint celebration for several 40th birthdays. Our group was made up of 6 families ( 12 adults and 10 children ranging in aged from 1-9).

This house was better than we expected and was beautifully furnished and very clean when we arrived. What worked so well for our group was the amount of space at the property both inside and outside, with several very large rooms downstairs ( lounge, kitchen, dining room, playroom and large entrance room with two sofa's), this enabled our group to socialising together or in smaller groups without all feeling on top of each other. We were blessed with great weather so all the children spent the majority of the time at the house outside, enjoying the large lawn for football, tennis court and secret garden. There was plenty of room in the kitchen for mealtimes and the dining room is lovely if you want a more formal meal ( which we did one night, although with white chair covers we didn't let the children in there unsupervised!). Even if the weather had been bad, there would still have been plenty of room inside for everyone.

The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need and the large BBQ outside was well used. The owner had very kindly left some fresh flowers, wine and a large fruit bowl for when we arrived which was a really lovely touch.

Location was great to, really close to Exeter airport and the m5 so easy to get to and while we were there we visited Exmouth beach ( which is a great beach with young children), Sidmouth and the donkey sanctuary, which is free to get in and donations welcome, the children all enjoyed this especially the large maize.

The owner Judy was very helpful with all my countless questions and enquiries, a little slow to respond at times but on other occasions replied almost instantly.

Without doubt we would love to come back to this property in the future and I have already recommended it to several friends.

Incredible venue! Perfect for our large group

  • 5 of 5

Westcott House is a stunning house in beautiful grounds. We were a large group of friends who required a house for the weekend and this venue surpassed our expectations.

There was plenty of space for all of us for the weekend. We particularly loved the dining room with the enormous dining table that seated us all comfortably for our evening meals. The kitchen was also well equiped with utensils, glassware and crockery for us all. :)

The house is clean, well presented and clearly well looked after. We loved the extra touches with the flowers and hamper of food and drinks we had on our arrival :)

All communication was prompt and clear which made the whole booking of the venue very straight forward. Thank you! :) We will recommend the venue to others in the future.

Westcott House is a stunning house located in beautiful grounds. We were a large group of friends requiring a weekend house for us to all catch up and this venue surpassed our expectations!

There was plenty of space for all of us and I particularly loved the large dining table in the dining room that seated us all comfortably for our evening meals. :) The kitchen was also well equipped with all the utensils you need to cook for a large party.

The house was clearly well looked after and well presented. We particularly liked the small touches like the flowers and hamper on arrival. :)

We would definitely recommend this venue to others. :)

A Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

Westcott house is the most fabulous house! It is well suited for a large family gathering. Every room has character and has been finished to such a high standard. The house had everything we possibly could have needed for our stay. A perfect weekend in a wonderful house, we would love to return!
