A beautiful vast property in an idyllic location. The pool and hot tub an added bonus which the whole family enjoyed. Everything you could possibly require was provided. The charming owners could not have been more helpful. We were all reluctant to leave and plan to return to Orchard house again.
Mrs Rayden April 2022
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful spacious colourful house. Quiet and peaceful location. Kids spent hours in the pool and hot tub. Convenient town 10 minutes drive for groceries/take aways. 1 hour drive to the beach, kids loved the surf lessons, gorge walk, plenty of coastal walks. We were sad to leave but will take with us lots of happy memories. Thank you to the owner.

We had a wonderful stay over Christmas at Orchard House, would definitely recommend the property which is beautifully decorated. The house was well heated, the mattresses were very comfortable, there was plenty of space and rooms for people to go off and do their own thing whether it was reading, watching tv or just relaxing on the sofa in the kitchen. The large kitchen/diner is a lovely room for socialising, Thank you to the owner for checking in with us to ensure we were enjoying our stay.

Orchard House was very comfortable. The pool and hot tub are a huge bonus and we used them every day. Dermot, the owner who lives down the drive, was incredibly welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Located out in beautiful countryside but a very easy, short drive to Okehampton for supermarkets etc
Ms Waterhouse October 2021
Dermot was very welcoming and helpful. The swimming pool and the hot tub were the highlights. Spacious kitchen
Mrs Egan September 2021
Ideal for families with dogs . Garden safe and lots of space for them to run and chase a ball . Coffee machine a big hit as was the pool ( not cold at all) and the hot tub at 38 degrees. Okehampton is close for supermarket and very good chippy and chinese for takeaways.

This property offers everything every room offers something different. the property has everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay, the heated pool enables you to swim what ever the weather and the hot tub is a bonus for relaxing evening out in the garden. Each room has two dressing gowns which where a great bonus when you are by the pool.
the location of the property although off the road a little is close to shops and activities everything you need is within 10 miles drive.
Mrs Byford August 2021
We had a lovely stay at Orchard House, 2 families and 2 large dogs. Plenty of room, pool and hot tub were a brilliant addition. Peaceful location. Dermot was a lovely host and recommend places for us to walk the dogs locally as there are no bridle paths or walks directly from the house. Would recommend to anyone wanting to “get away from it all”.
Mrs Chopra August 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at Orchard House. It was comfortable, really nicely decorated and had everything you could possibly need. The pool and jacuzzi were perfect and were highlights for us!
Mr Badger July 2021
Beautiful clean house and setting, we were a party of 4 adults, one teen (16) and 2 fur kids, the house is beautifully and lovingly presented with enough garden space for the dogs. The Owner, Dermot came round the second day and introduced himself and Mitsy, he also advised us on where to walk the dogs, places to visit and gave us his mobile number should we need any further assistance. The pool and hot tub were a great hit with our party and the kitchen had every accessory you would need and was a great area for socialising, in fact we spent most of our time in there. If you are thinking of booking Orchard house, don’t think twice...just do it, you won’t be disappointed
Mr Wilson July 2021
Fabulous spacious property where we spent a week with our adult children, other halves and toddler grandchild. Everyone can find their own space if they want it as it's so big. Very safe enclosed garden with huge bonus of pool. Lovely warm quiet evenings there surrounded by Devon farmland but Okehampton and it's facilities only 10 min drive away.
Mr Vaughan June 2021
Lovely family home let down by lack of general maintenance and poor housekeeping. Holiday saved by lovely heated pool.

Thank you so much for your review of Orchard House. We are delighted to read that you found Orchard House to be a lovely family home. We so wish we'd known about your queries during your stay so that we could help - the bathroom plug operates on a twist mechanism rather than a pop up movement and we'd have been happy to rectify any issues for you. We have shared your feedback with the owner and housekeeper and hope to weclome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support
