Ian's house was great - loads of space, huge garden and a good central location to get out and about in North Devon. Our two children had a great time and its position on the edge of Barnstaple made getting to the beaches and back really easy. We were lucky to have fantastic weather, but the house was big enough that if the rain had come down you wouldn't feel cooped up. Ian was always available on the phone if needed, but we didn't have any problems during our stay.
Beautiful house and a lovely stay. Great location as is near a town with a big supermarket. But also a short drive from the beach and other nice places to visit in Devon. The house was very warm and cosy with a lovely garden. Ian was very helpful and provided us with any info we needed. All in all it was a great stay and I hope we can one day come back : )
Really lovely house - it really is big. We loved the furniture and general style. All very clean, plenty of hot water etc. Short drive to some amazing beaches and lots of all-weather activities. We loved fishing for trout, the Tarka Trail is 2 mins from the house, bike rental really close too. Ian was great too. All in all a fantastic holiday. Thank you, Liz
We had a great time in Ian's spacious and luxurious house. Really nice, big, light rooms which meant that we could be really social eg grown-ups cooking and chatting in the kitchen, kids running in and out of the playroom. I'd been a bit concerned that it being laid out across 4 floors would make the group quite separate, but this wasn't the case (except when individuals/couples wanted a bit of privacy). High spec finish (esp in bathrooms) and furnishings and huge garden made this a bit of a house designer fantasy esp the kitchen, but the fact that this was a family home meant it didn't feel like a showcase house. The location was good too: we were in easy driving distance of main attractions we wanted to see. I'd highly recommend this house. The one slight negative was that although it's definitely 'family friendly', I'd say it's better suited to older children - eg we didn't feel comfortable leaving the kids (3-7 yrs old) unsupervised in the garden/on the trampoline (which they looooved), and we had to 'hover' over them in the house more than usual, to keep little hands off delicate ornaments, personal items and 'keep out of reach' cleaning products. This probably says more about our kids than the house! The best thing about the stay was Ian who was always at the end of the line. I'd email a question at midnight, not expecting a reply until the next day, but he'd get back to us quickly with really good clear advice and guidance. He was honest about some minor issues - works going on next door, in the garden and a jam in a window (none of which were in fact a problem) We get the impression that he's a wonderful dad to a warm, creative family and this contributed to the pleasure of our stay.
We had a lovely stay at Ian's house. It was very spacious and the bathrooms and kitchen immaculate and gorgeous! Huge garden with trampoline which our girls loved. Easy 10 minute walk into the main town and even shorter walk to a big Tescos. Everything was perfect and we were very happy. Would definitely go back!!
Fantastic spacious house, great location for exploring north Devon. Ian is a great host, who left clear and detailed instructions. Our kids loved the huge gardens and the house was perfect for our group of 4 Adults and 5 kids. Would definitely recommend, there are lots of wonderful places nearby. Would love to go back for more. Thankyou Ian.
The house is beautiful, modern but with some lovely homely touches. There were 7 adults and one child in our group. There was plenty of room for us all as the house is huge! The garden is massive and where we all spent most of our time. There is ample parking on the street (we had 3 cars and a van) and there was always somewhere to park. We had a brilliant time and we are already planning to come back next year! Thanks Ian for being a great host.
Hi Ian, just wanted to say a big thank you for letting us stay at your house. We had a great time exploring the area and were lucky with the weather. House is tidy and has lots of space. Barnstaple town is so close. Recommended to everyone.
We were 4 adults and 5 children and we have had 5 wonderfull days in this huge, very individualy arranged House. Everything was in place and especially the kitchen is gorgeous (sorry for the broken bowl :-( ). This stay was definitly a highlight on our trip, recommended to everyone.
Great house and location, made our holiday really enjoyable.
Ian's house was perfect for our group of six, and Ian was very helpful with directions etc.
Will definitely recommend to friends and family, and will certainly go back another time.
Ian a été un locataire très sympathique et hyper ponctuel. J'espère à une prochaine fois.
Ian and his lovelly familly where very good guests and i hope they enjoy
the stay in this charming house.Thanks
