Western Knowle is a superb property. We love going there.
Loved everything about Western Knowle, really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely stay again :-)
We had 2 cars but only 1 parking permit so was continually moving cars to avoid parking tickets. We enjoyed our stay and the sheets were lovely quality. So were the duvets but the double duvets were far too heavy and hot for summer weather so used the singles which were lighter weight. The house was nice and spacious and although we were only 4 people it would easily absorb a bigger family so good value.
Absolute delight to stay here. We will be coming back hopefully. A lovely house, huge.
Another superb holiday in Devon through Toad Hall. Western Knowle is a superb property. It was great to have an enclosed walled garden that even our dog could not escape from !! Also, another big "Thank You" to Debbie the Caretaker for helping us when we locked ourselves out of the property. We can't wait to stay in the house again.

Spacious well proportioned house, close to all amenities. A real bonus having two sitting rooms when the party consists of teenagers and adults.the snooker table proved to be a big hit.
