A Fabulous Surprise for my 70th Birthday

I had no idea about where I would celebrate my 70th brithday. After a relaxing morning I was drive to Gitcombe House by one of my daughters and my husband. My wonderful three daughters had been plotting for some time and Gitcombe has been perfect for a large family celebration. We have enjoyed all the facilities on site including log fires and eating in the sumptuous dining room. We were all particularly impressed with every attention to detail! We all felt relaxed and enveloped in Gitcombe's warmth and were really sad to leave.

A Wonderful & Perfect Venue for our Golden Wedding Anniversary

A wonderful and perfect venue for our Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations with our family and friends. All of us enjoyed the super facilities in the most beautiful setting. What a wonderful time to visit with all the daffodils, primroses and camellias in full bloom. Thank you for making us all feel so welcome. We hope to return in the very near future.

Another wonderful week at glorious Gitcombe

A fabulous week spent at Gitcombe once again. This is our fourth visit under the ownership of Joanne & Peter and it just keeps getting better. Swimming in the indoor pool twice a day, our yearly table football competition with our 2 boys, crabbing at Dittisham and wonderful fish and chips at Rockfish in Dartmouth. Our 2 boys love Blackpool Sands Beach and the new discovery this year of South Milton Sands and the Crabshack was a real treat. We will be back again next year.

WOW.... What a place!!

Wow what a place! We have had the most wonderful stay here at Gitcombe. Yennadon Barn has been perfect for our family (2 adults + 2 girls) with everything thought of from travel cots, high chairs, stair gates, booster seats not to mention baby baths, changing mats and potties. Joanne & Peter have thought of everything. The pool and beautiful views from the hot tub have been fab. We even managed to have breakfast on our terrace a couple of times. We had gorgeous days out exploring Dartmouth, Salcombe and Totnes. We loved Blackpool Sands Beach and a walk to Overbecks from East Soar Farm was incredible - great cakes at the walkers hut!! We can't wait to come back.

A hidden gem

We had a wonderful stay at Gitcombe. It is a truly unique, hidden away place. As a couple we wondered if it would be geared more to families with small children. Not so. Everyone would be made to feel welcome here, by excellent and attentive hosts, Joanne and Peter. We stayed in Meavy Cottage, one of a number of beautifully converted barns. Everything is included from a well set up kitchen, quality furnishings etc... all you could want for a self catering get away. Dartmouth and Totnes are fairly close and of course the Malsters Arms, a quirky pub, is worth a trip down the lanes. Lots of good walks too. In all, Gitcombe will be highly recommended by us.

Wonderful New Year Stay

Gitcombe is a beautiful place to stay and the owners could not be more helpful. The accommodation was spotless and well equipped and all the facilities surpassed most considerably more expensive hotels. Our children adored the pool and play area. It is also very well located for all of Devon's attractions. It is a truly magical place for all the family to enjoy.

The Perfect Christmas at Gitcombe

Eleven of us , four generations stayed for four days for Christmas. The house was decorated ready for The festivities, the table laid, the Waitrose delivery unpacked , an amazing food hamper waiting with Christmas cake, mince pies, pickles, and wine , all local artisan products that were exciting to try and delicious to eat. We lit the fire in the drawing room, and that was it, Christmas had begun. Joanne and Peter are delightful and do everything possible to help you enjoy all the facilities. As chief cook I particularly appreciated having excellent quality pans, knives etc while enjoying using an Aga for the first time. It truly was an amazing house. So much more than the pictures show. Thank you Peter and Joanne
