We had a fantastic time, the house was lovely. Really appreciated the dog treats too, a nice touch
The house lived up to expectations giving everyone their own space and having an ideal situation close to the sea as well as being exceedingly comfortable and well equipped....home from home and we hope to return. The caretakers were exceptionally helpful as well as leaving the house in pristine condition for our arrival.
Wonderful holiday home in a superb location, we really could not have asked for more.Beautiful beach,stunning coastal and estuary walks, great places to eat everything so close at hand we didn't use the car at all! Thank you to the owners and all the great team at Toad Hall for a brilliant holiday!
Having known the area for some time I can, with absolute certainty, say that this is the best house in the South Hams.
We really enjoyed our stay at Bantham House. Exceptional, quality property, beautifully presented and really well equipped. The location is great for superb walks with stunning sea views. Fabulous beach and a wonderful outlook to Burgh Island and along the Avon Estuary. A truly relaxing holiday with the bonus of having the perfect pub next door! (The Sloop Inn - highly recommended). We loved every minute and didn't want to leave! Even our dog seems to have the holiday blues now we are home! We would definitely want yo stay again.
Had another wonderful week at Bantham in a perfect property.
