Ample space, lovely home and heaps of facilities

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for a fantastic few days. You have a really lovely home. Bathrooms and kitchen all shiny and clean and we had lovely fresh bedlinen. The sunny weather helped enormously and we spent the majority of the time spilling out onto the lawn. It was great to have the front door wide open and the kids running in and out. With a tennis court and swimming pool on site, the children had a ball. We were two families which initially concerned me that we might be a little cramped, but the house felt spacious and there was plenty of room. Despite there being a huge separate dining room, meals tended to be taken on the large lawn in front of the house which was completely private and had fantastic views down the valley. There were lovely beaches at Slapton, Salcombe and Bantham which were a drive away but worth it when we got there. However, it was also great to return to the peace and tranquility of Stancombe - the perfect escape from the crowds. We will definitely be back!

Thank-you for a wonderful stay at the Manor. The house is amazing , with beautiful Georgian architecture. We fell in love with its charm and character. The decor is relaxed giving a nice homely feel. The kitchen is very well equiped and clean. The family had more than enough to do and especially loved the pool and tennis courts. Doggy friendly with walks from the garden gates. Centrally located for beaches . Especially liked east Portlemouth/Salcombe. The owner was lovely and easy to communicate with, nice touches like bottles of wine and a card waiting for us on arrival and flowers in vases. Another shower would have been good but overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
