Fantastic.

Beautiful property, well appointed flat. Enjoyed the peace and quiet during our short break and took advantage of the pool and tennis courts. Very thoughtful welcome basket which was appreciated by all. Highly recommended.

A beautiful hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Bluebell bank. It was immaculately clean on arrival and very well equipt. We also felt our toddler was very safe and well catered for. We loved the beautiful grounds and used both swimming pools on numerous occasions. The apartment is nicely furnished and very comfortable and very spacious. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the kitchen is a little dated. We would definitely recommend this property for a holiday in a beautiful part of Devon.

Well equiped and comfortable apartment with great facilities.

  • 3 of 5

Good experience overall. The owners were thoughtful about guests needs.The fridge, which is quite old, needs replacing and the two double mattresses' had seen better days. The only real concern was the cold water tank which was slow to fill and my three year old granddaughter could have been scalded by the shower but we overcame this. Really enjoyable stay mainly due to the two pools and the location.

Owner's Response: The fridge is old but does operate well under 5 oC. It will be replaced when the kitchen is renovated. The kingsized mattresses are firm but not old, however we accept that they may not suit everyone. We have added mattress covers to help those who like a softer feel. We were concerned about the report of a fluctuating temperature in the shower over the bath and have been in touch with the guest to ensure that no one has been harmed. We don't think this is linked to a speed of flow into the cold water tank but may have been due to another part of the system being used at the same time and affecting the pressure. We have now disconnected the bath shower until it can be thoroughly investigated.

christmas at Bluebell Bank 2015

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous house in even more gorgeous settings. Very peaceful and relaxing - the perfect place to spend christmas away from the madness. The apartment was lovely and had everything we needed. Too cold to make use of the outdoor pool but loved the indoor pool and sauna sadly ran out of time to use the tennis courts. All communications with owner were excellent and loved the thoughtful gift of cereal, cava and christmas cake. The only negative thing i could think of is that the stay wasnt long enough. Excellent driving instructions. Sorry my phone wont let me put a star rating in but would choose the top one.

Beautiful spacious apartment & grounds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August this is a very well appointed apartment, it was well equipped with everything you may need for a day out, and activity's available at Sheplegh Court. The views from the apartment were beautiful, and it was very spacious. Made good use of heated outdoor swimming pool and tennis court.

It was 15 min drive to Dartmouth mostly single track roads, quit isolated so will suit people who like peace and quiet.
