Wonderful holiday at Marigold Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Marigold Cottage for a week in June 2017 with 5 other adults. The cottage was spacious, well equipped and clean. The beds were lovely and the garden private and sun drenched with pretty shrubs. The whole complex of Stancombe Manor was amazing with a warm and well maintained indoor pool, great tennis court and snooker table plus table tennis, table football and pool. We made full use of these facilities morning and evening and I walked my dog each morning along the footpath to Sherford village with its lovely old church. The location of Stancombe Manor means it is very peaceful but accessible to the rest of South Devon and beyond. I would thoroughly recommend Marigold Cottage to others and was sorry to leave after a wonderful holiday.

Home from home hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here at Easter with another family. Best equipped holiday home we have ever stayed in.

The garden is very private. The gate does open onto a road but only saw a couple of cars. Fabulous facilities for the kids. Even a couple of holes of golf!

2 lovely sized beds with unsuit upstairs. The little bunk room downstairs was small so we popped all the kids in other downstairs bedroom and they loved it.

Great spot to explore Devon. Highly recommend. Louise is very helpful and sends lots of useful information once you book.

A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage, very well equipped and access to great extras such as tennis court, pool and games room. The grounds are beautifully kept and provide a haven, away from it all. We would have happily stayed put there but it is also close to great places to visit. The owner was very helpful and communicated well.

Lovely property for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property for a holiday with 2 boys 5 and 3 and two sets of grandparents. Very well equipped, toys,books, DVDs, great shower, and private garden. Did not feel cramped. Facilities on site excellent, tennis court, swimming pool (quite deep but ok if you stay at shallow end) and games room with pool table, table tennis and table football. Snooker room for grown ups. Location remote but a good base from which to explore all south Devon coastal villages. No mobile signal (very much like the rest of South Devon!) but good wifi. Would recommend.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well-equipped cottage in the heart of the South Devon countryside. Numerous places of interest and stunning beaches within 45 minutes drive, often less.

The cottage itself was clean and well maintained, with a beautiful enclosed garden. There is a fenced pond with a resident duck to feed, and the tennis court and swimming pool were an added bonus. Just to note the pool is quite deep, and even at the shallow end my four year old couldn't touch the bottom. However, this wasn't a problem with arm bands and it was warm and clean with a hot shower and toilets/changing rooms available inside. We loved our stay at Marigold Cottage and would definitely recommend it to friends. We travelled with two children aged four and two.
