Absolutely loved our stay. Phenomenal views and lovely walks right on the doorstep. We hired it to accommodate family members for our son’s wedding and used it to maximum capacity, 16 plus an infant. It felt so spacious, even with that large a group. Ideal for large family gatherings or for two families who would like a bit of their own space.
The fridge and freezer required cleaning prior to use. As did some of the cooking pans and utensils. This applied to Thorpe Arnold Major. Otherwise all a top 5!
House very clean but windows needed cleavning
Thank you for your comments, window cleaning schedule has now been brought up to date. We look forward to welcoming you again.

We had a great time! The property was really good for our two families and we would definitely want to stay here again.
We enjoyed our week at Thorpe Arnold very much. We had both Minor and Major sections of the property and were very pleased to find they had a connecting door. The property is well stocked with glasses and kitchen equipment. Major has two fridges which was good. The views were amazing. A couple of issues we had were that the smoke alarm kept on going off randomly. The Major part of the house only has storage heating which means that by 8pm, the house gets very cold. We were in the house in January during a chilly week and the bedrooms in particular were freezing. Stand alone oil radiators were supplied but one didn't work. The owners would do well to invest in central heating in this part of the property. Guests staying during the winter should make sure they bring plenty of coal/ logs/ kindling and hot water bottles. But overall, a lovely time was had by all. Thank you.
We enjoyed our holiday very much and would not hesitate to book the same property again or use toad hall cottages to book our next holiday in devon
Incredible place, amazing uninterrupted views of the sea, literally on the golf course, and walking distance to the pub!!!! Fantastic
This could be a real 5 star property, given the amazing location, stunning and dramatic sea views and the very spacious accommodation that it offers. However the lack of attention to detail meant the interior decor and furnishings were not up to the standard expected from quality holiday cottages these days. Pictures and furniture were faded and the bathrooms would benefit from modernisation. Having said that I do appreciate finding a holiday cottage that was happy to accept more than one dog: if only more could be persuaded to do so!
