We really enjoyed our week as a family. Couldn't have asked for more really. Great weather too. Unfortunately halfway through the holiday my mother in law blocked the toilet but the owner immediately produced a plunger and no one was caught short. Happy days!
Yes very much and would definately recommend/go back
Yes we enjoyed our stay at the property and in the area but the configuration of the living arrangements ie only the kitchen downstairs, made it hard work, because the kitchen was not a comfortable area to relax in ie kitchen, dining area, window seats, wood burner, where would anyone sit.... To make a cup of tea in the kitchen was easy but to take it upstairs to the lounge was hard work. Small fenced garden, although handy, gave the impression that the rest of the farm was a 'no go' area.
We stayed at Bearscombe to celebrate my parent’s diamond anniversary. We chose it because it is dog friendly but the place was just perfect to entertain extended family and the outdoor furniture was ideal for enjoying our family Sunday lunch outside and in the very comfortable kitchen. A good selection of kitchen equipment and a generous amount of crockery etc for entertaining. Also very handy for kingsbridge rugby club where we went to watch my brother training youngsters and watch my nephew play in his match. My daughter and son in law enjoyed a lunch date at The Crabshell in the sun overlooking kingsbridge estuary, while he toddler slept in peace at home at the farmhouse. We loved our stay and would highly recommend the place!
We really enjoyed our stay. Henry was a highlight!
Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Don't over price it... Only one bathroom! But you cant have everything.
We had a wonderful stay and Gill and family, friends and animals all made us incredibly welcome. The cottage was stunning and the rooms were all incredibly well cleaned and everything seemed new (and probably was). We felt very comfortable and even the dog had a friend in Henry, the farmers' labrador. One of our sons really loved being on the farm which was a real bonus for him. Having a great Sky TV package and reliable wifi was brilliant and I truly miss that beautiful farmhouse kitchen!
