Ideal for our three-generational holiday plus family dogs. Plenty of secure grounds for running around in. Inner courtyard wonderful for evening bbq and meals opening on to the dining area. Amazing, quirky holiday home and immaculately clean on arrival.

Property was fantastic in an excellent location. Games room was a bonus and kept us entertained. Roads are a little narrow, but you can certainly get away from it all. Internet excellent considering location and river views have to be seen to be fully appreciated. The Coombe Cellars pub serves excellent food and is close enough to stagger home from. Would recommend taking slippers as outdoor shoes need to be taken off on entrance, light carpet not really suitable. Only real downside was the 9.00am checkout time, which is a little early and cleaners actually turned up at 8.45, whilst still packing. Overall thought, highly recommended.

Thanks so much for your recommendation - we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We're pleased to report that the check-out time is now 10am. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Julie, Customer Support

Fabulous house and location with everything you could possibly want. We had the best holiday even though the weather wasn't good. The games room was amazing and to be able to step out of the garden straight into the river, to play boats and swim knowing you could run straight back to a hot shower was absolute bliss.

We, our cousins and especially our two dogs loved the location and space. Would love to visit in warmer weather

Exceeded our expectations.

Maybe a little expensive but the house and outside area, the view and tranquility made up for it.

What a wonderful place to bring the family together! Lots of space, super well equipped and the Riverside views are amazing. Would definitely recommend

The house is absolutely stunning and the location is fantastic right on the river. The equipment in the kitchen is of a high standard. There is plenty of seating in the property and lots of places to eat. The garden is huge and very well equipped. There is plenty parking for numerous cars. The electric gates make you feel safe and the fences are very secure for children or pets. We had lots of fun as a family playing pool in the playroom. The property is excellent on one level if you have limited mobility and the shower room is fantastic. The property has all the equipment you need.

The room with a sofa is amazing. The beds are lovely.

5 laps around the garden is a mile so excellent for running or playing games.

The views of the river are amazing.

We have been going to the same area for a number of years. It’s beautiful and quiet. Lots or narrow lanes.

The photos on the website don’t do the property justice. The layout with a courtyard in the middle of the house is very fun and gives the house lots of light. We have booked again as it had everything we need for a great family multi generation holiday.

Great for a friends or family holiday. Two large en-suite bedrooms and a third double and another with bunk beds. Extra Large shower room, with toilet and wash basin and fitted glass doors concealing the wash and airing machines. Extra large tables in indoor and outdoor (fantastic) dining areas, large and comfortable lounge, fully fitted kitchen with good work surfaces. Large veranda facing the estuary with plenty of seating. Gardens were huge and well kept. Peaceful and quiet, just what we needed. The owner greeted us and had baked the most amazing cake, which went down really well after a long journey. Completely private and safe with good parking. A holiday we will always remember for all the right reasons.

We had a lovely holiday in a brilliant property. The house was exceptionally clean and equipped with everything we wanted, and more. The position of the house could not be bettered and the very large garden was beautiful. However, we would like to warn anyone with small children that the balcony is not fenced and would cause a safety issue to little ones falling off and hurting themselves. This aside it would not be a problem to adults.

We would recommend this property.

Thanks so much for your review, we're delighted to see that you enjoyed your stay! The position is unrivalled as you say, but we do suggest that children are supervised when outside of the enclosed internal courtyard. We hope we'll be able to welcome you back again in the future.

This is a superb holiday house an a very good location that is very sensitively managed and and hosted. Thank you Harriet for your help during our stay.

The time flew by, we were all so very sad to leave.

You can sit and watch all manner of boating activities in front of you, or sit in the secluded courtyard to read or share a meal. Absolutely perfect for a restful time with the family after months of restrictions! Loved it.

Beautiful isolation just what we wanted, excellent location, beautiful grounds, exceptional indoor spaces with everything you could need provided. Beautiful interiors and really well designed our grandson loved the open spaces and the beautiful bathrooms. Everything about Clare Park is above and beyond, we will definitely be back.

What a beautiful cottage! We had a fabulous week exploring the local area, with plenty of advice given by the very helpful and friendly owners. It was reassuring to see the extra measure they had in place Re: Covid 19 (we were there pre-lockdown 2.0) and we will definitely be returning in 2021 if at all possible. The house was extremely well equipped and comfortable and my children will be talking about the garden for a long time to come! Thank you for a lovely holiday.

A lovely comfortable house in beautiful surroundings. Plenty to see and do in the area.

This property is one of the best self catering places we’ve ever stayed in. It was a pleasure to be there and thank the owners for letting it out.

Clare Park is a superb holiday rental. The house is a lovely architect designed single storey house in extensive grounds with direct frontage onto the River Teign with fantastic views across the valley. It has been refurbished to a high standard with lovely bathrooms and spacious kitchen, dining room and lounge. Things we particularly loved were the spaciousness, sitting out on the balcony which is sheltered from the wind and rain while looking across the valley, and the ample supply of games and toys for the children. The property was immaculate and great care had been taken to make it Covid safe. We were three generations and there was lots to do locally: hire a boat in Teignmouth, visit the model village and lovely cove in Babbacombe or just walk along the shore line to the nearby pub. Shaldon, a short drive away is a charming coastal village. Overall a lovely property to share with the family.

Wonderful house, everything we needed and more. Garden and views are fabulous which was great for the dogs. Harriet the owner was so lovely helpful and makes the most delicious cakes. We have used Classic cottage for years think this is our favourite house

A lovely house in a super location.

The homemade cake on arrival was a lovely thought and delicious.

Clare Park cottage is a lovely house and well equipped for a multi generational family holiday. It is in a peaceful setting with plenty of indoor and outdoor space.
