Spectacular property, comfortable accommodation, close to shop, pubs and good restaurants. Well worth a visit.

This place is in an incredible location, right on the waterfront in Stoke Gabriel, with access through the back garden which was excellent -- our kids went crabbing all the time right outside, Lots of other people come there to do that too, so it isn't peaceful -- you'll have cars pulling up outside all day on the front, but it's all jolly, fun holiday noise - not a problem. Nice you can walk to the River Shack cafe opposite for pizza and a beer (the other food there is a bit hit and miss though). The location was great for me as I was researching a book about paddlesports and needed to paddleboard in the area -- I could paddle right to and from the door when the tide was right and took the kids out for sunset kayaks which was incredible. Stoke Gabriel is a gorgeous village, loads to do nearby. We really recommend Scabbacombe beach - beautiful, and no one on it even in August when we visited. Parking at the property is a bit tricky, getting in and out a small drive on a steep narrow lane. We just about managed to fit three cars on. The main let down was the house was a bit grubby inside, and the lower floow was incredibly damp - it smells of damp and clothes took three days to dry down there. Otherwise it has a great space with balcony and very well equipped, just needs redecorating as walls very marked, needs cleaning better - was dusty on shelves etc, drawers had bits in, and a bit grubby round the edges. Still a worth while stay for the location and great garden with firepit.

Fantastic house in a lovely little village, but be prepared for large numbers of other holiday makers parked right outside the back of the property and the subsequent lack of privacy and noise until the River Shack closes.
