“Perfect Stay at a Great House”
Our family spent a perfect weekend at the end of October 16 at Westcott House to celebrate our Mother's birthday. With 5 children and 12 adults, the house was just wonderful with first class facilities in all respects, plenty of room inside and the outside with huge well kept gardens allowing us to spend good quality time as a family with the children. The very spacious well kept rooms gave us all our own space with a perfect large dining room allowing us to have dinner together as one family. Judy made the extra effort to ensure a great weekend with the facilities more than exceeding our expectations and we look forward to returning in the near future. Thank you Judy.
“Comfort and style proves a winning recipe”
Westcott House offers space, comfort and elegance. We took an autumn short break here and found everything we needed. Beds are comfy, there is plenty of hot water. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is the benefit of an open fire in the main reception room for cosy evenings. Location is good, being close to the A30 and Exeter. We were unobtrusively made very welcome.
“Fabulous house, great gardens and warm welcome!”
A group of friends and i stayed here in early June and loved every second. The house is majestic, every last detail has been thought of and we really did feel very spoiled getting the opportunity to stay in such luxury and actually its pretty reasonably priced. The gardens are beautiful and the location is great. Its really easy to get to, really great transport links and only 10 mins drive from the beach. I would thoroughly recommend and hope to go back and stay again in the future. Thank you.
“Great location for bigger parties”
This place has character. I turely recommend it for anybody who wants to holiday and/or party with a larger group.
