Even better than the first (if possible)

Our second stay at Gitcombe in September was even better than our first as we were lucky enough to stay in Gitcombe House which proved to be perfect for our large family gathering. As usual the facilities kept everyone amused, especially the indoor pool and soft play area which proved invaluable for our very young grandchildren. The house itself was great, very clean and had everything we needed for a family holiday. A property I could happily live in!! Thank you Peter and Joanne for another fabulous break.

Somewhere Special

From the moment we arrived at Gitcombe we knew we were somewhere special. The grounds were immaculately kept and there are wonderful views in every direction. We stayed in Yennadon - it is a beautiful cottage - stylishly furnished and very well equipped. We loved the upside down layout and made the most of the terrace for meals, chilling and just admiring the surrounding countryside. All the leisure facilities were excellent - we all loved the indoor/outdoor pools and sitting in the outdoor hot tub was extremely relaxing. Peter and Joanna were the perfect hosts - both very friendly and easy to talk to and were able to give us eating out recommendations for the local area. We would whole-heartedly recommend Gitcombe to our friends and family and we hope to return ourselves.

A Little Piece of Paradise

We absolutely loved our time at Gitcombe. The South Hams holds a very special place in our hearts and is a place we're thrilled to be able to now share with our children. Gitcombe is a little piece of paradise in what is such a gorgeous part of the countryside. We have stayed in various B and Bs and cottages in the area over the years and Gitcombe really does stand out. I've just asked our eldest son (2 years 8 months) what his favourite part was and his response was 'everything'! Quite often the highlight of his day when we're on holiday is 'ice cream' so 'everything' is praise indeed! Your grounds are beautiful, the new swing a particular highlight and the indoor facilities a real blessing when autumn arrives a bit sooner than anticipated! The soft play was a particular hit for us this year as our youngest son (just 1) is desperate to do everything his big brother does so a safe environment in which to explore is super useful. The Coach House is beautiful. It's a challenging balancing act once you have children to still have the kind of holidays you've always enjoyed while staying somewhere that suits young children. The Coach House really helped us strike that balance. Brilliantly equipped but still cosy and stylish. And the hot top was just the icing on the cake for me once the children were in bed! So all in all, we loved it and will absolutely be back. Thank you!

Truly Special Time

All I can say is that we had a truly special time at Gitcombe. The Garden House is so well equipped, catering for all age groups from 1 years to 75 years!! All the facilities are great. Our little one particularly loved the soft play area and playroom and the new basket swing down at the playpark. We would dearly love to come back to see you next year. Thank you for a wonderful weekend break - just what we needed.
