Soraya, Mane, Charlie & Emily (Aug): Really lovely, spacious, relaxing and cosy accommodation and the beds really comfortable – makes a change! Torquay is very beautiful, exciting and fun. As a family we enjoyed Oddicombe beach, walking around Torquay, the steam training the viewing cabin and tea rooms @Cockington. Lovely stay – thank you. 41/42
George, Eileen, Laura, Logan & 'Bo' (July): Excellent accommodation, especially for people with dogs, as finding a top-class place which is also pet friendly, isn’t easy. Hosts very friendly and helpful – just ask if there is anything needed to your requirements and you won’t be disappointed. Thanks for the welcome – the wine, biscuits, milk and doggy treats etc and Martin for going out and buying us a fan within hours of our request. Lots of nice beach walks nearby and good local Chinese and chip shop! The cottage was very clean and tidy and family friendly and great for dog! 42/42
The Threshing Barn
Hayley, Ronnie, Jack, Charlie, Georgina, Taylor & George (Extended family in August): We saw the barn on the internet and once here loved it! Great size for all the family. Looks even better in real life! Really enjoyed the stay. Made to feel so welcome and there if you need them. A holiday me & the kids won’t forget. Wished we stayed longer than 1 week – still so much to do and see. Model Village at Babbacombe, Paignton Zoo and a great Chinese up the road! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. 42/42
