- Very Good
We stayed in the Roundhouse at Combrew Farm and what a fantastic time we had. The cottage is very spacious and beautiful. Oh and not forgetting the pool it was so nice getting into warm water, the kids thoroughly enjoyed it as well as feeding the chickens and goats. We will definitely return next year. Thankyou Sue x
Fabulous stay at the roundhouse, the attention to detail was second to none, the facilities were excellent. Age range from 1 to 71 and all were catered for. Sue and John were always available to help. We had a great family holiday and the only let down was the weather . I would highly recommend and hope to return next year.
“Perfect accommodation for a family holiday.”
This was our 6th stay at The Roundhouse and we enjoyed it as much (if not more) than our first. The accommodation is very comfortable and we always find something is new or has been updated. Our family love the games room, badminton and tennis. The spa swimming pool and sauna are always a highlight. Even though our family is grown up we still enjoy feeding the goats. The icing on the cake is the very warm welcome and help you get from the owners.
We arrived to a clean and luxurious 5 bed cottage with plenty of room for the 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The cottage definitely had the "wow" factor We made use of the lovely warm pool, games room (darts, pool, air hockey) after dinner and it did get very competitive and noisy. The gym was a great way to start the morning! Unfortunately we didn't get time to use the tennis courts, trampolines or library. Although we made time to feed the rabbits! We hired mountain bikes from Ross (son of Sue & John) for the day and headed off on the Tarka Trail. We briefly stopped at Fremington Quay (across the road from Combrew Lane) to take in the views and continued to Instow where there were a couple of local pubs and shops along the seafront as well as lovely restaurants which specialise in fresh seafood. The cottage is in a quiet and peaceful location with Barnstaple town centre 10 mins away by car and there is a local Sainsbury's close by. The location is also ideal for visitng Clovelly, Appledore, Bideford etc.
“Just perfect. Incredible facilities and the accommodation was faultless.”
We stayed with another family and the house was the perfect size. The attention to detail was incredible, nothing had been scrimped on. We had everything we needed, the leisure facilities were great and kept everyone busy. Everywhere was immaculate and clean and I cannot recommend the place and hosts highly enough. We will be back...
“Our September big family holiday to combrew farm.”
Yet again another amazing stay at the roundhouse at combrew farm. This was our 8th time back and it was just as great as the first. Brining all our family together with lots of space still was great. Our 1 year old grandson loved it too. The facilities are great all clean and such fun. We will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you sue and John for another amazing week down in Devon. The Dudley clan.
“Relaxing and enjoyable experience”
Very welcoming and helpful. Plenty of activities to suit all ages,the pool was amazing.The Roundhouse was well presented and spotless. We will be booking another family holiday there again.
“Wonderful family holiday in a superb house”
We were met at Combrew by Sue after a very long journey. We were shown round the absolutely lovely house and facilities. All through our stay Sue couldn't have been more helpful with local information and advice. The house had everything you could need for a great home from home staycation, all the facilities were excellent. The beds were very comfy and the bathrooms sparkling. The local area is fantastic and we would recommend hiring bikes and cycling along the Tarka Trail to Instow. Also a visit to Appledore (have a pint at The Beaver) and Saunton Sands. The weather was a bit hit and miss during our stay but the grandchildren were happy just being in the pool, feeding the goats or playing badminton or ping pong. We would love to visit again and would recommend without hesitation.
“Best UK Holiday yet!”
From the moment we drove down the drive and were confronted with The Roundhouse we knew this house was going to be amazing. The idillic countryside setting with, fields, streams, and beautiful well keep gardens frames this stunning property. We were unaware with how large the property was going to be. It is huge and every room is so light and airy. With Velux windows in the majority of the rooms the space feels very bright and airy. The facilities on site are excellent. The children used the pool everyday, which again is very well looked after. The children's park just opposite The Roundhouse was great too as the kids could just run over to it for a quick play on the trampolines, and claiming frame. The goats next to the park also provide to be very entertaining. We hope to make Combrew Farm a regular holiday as our kids absolutely loved it. And with the choice of Devon's fantastic beaches just a 20min drive away and Barnstable on the doorstep, this ranks far above all our previous family holidays in Cornwall. Sue the owner was very welcoming on our arrival and always on hand when we had some 'tourist' questions. Thank you Sue :-)
“First class property in a lovely area”
This was our second visit to the Roundhouse and the property continues to live up to the high standards set one year ago. There were 10 of us from three generations aged 19 months to 65 and there was something for all of us to enjoy from the play park to the pool and pool table. The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived, the beds were comfortable and the huge dining table meant that we could all sit down together without feeling squashed. Our granddaughter wanted to live there forever and nanny said it just felt like home. What more could you ask for.
