    “We booked this holiday for us and our 3 children.”

    It was our son’s first birthday on the Thursday so we envisioned playing in the pool all day as he is a true water baby and our older children also love the pool. We arrived to find the indoor pool out of use as the heater had broken so it was freezing cold. We called coast and country who informed us it wasn’t due to be fixed until Feb! They told us the outdoor pool is fine to be used. We informed them it was filthy, green and full of slugs they told us that it was fine to go in and nobody ...

    It was our son’s first birthday on the Thursday so we envisioned playing in the pool all day as he is a true water baby and our older children also love the pool. We arrived to find the indoor pool out of use as the heater had broken so it was freezing cold. We called coast and country who informed us it wasn’t due to be fixed until Feb! They told us the outdoor pool is fine to be used. We informed them it was filthy, green and full of slugs they told us that it was fine to go in and nobody would be coming to clean it. I wouldn’t allow the children in it due to the filth but my partner went in. He found a newt, lots of algae and came out covered in slugs. He came down with a bacterial infection the next day requiring antibiotics which completely ruined the holiday to be honest. The property is very very remote and is atleast a 40 minute drive to get to anything decent for the children to do. There is a beach close by but it is shingle and not sand and is not safe for the kids to paddle but is very picturesque. Paignton was a good beach for the kids but is a 40 minute drive away. There are no takeaways you can order and no nearby places to eat that we could find. The roads in and out are really not great to drive and we couldn’t safely walk on them with a pram so nearby walks were off the cards (we should’ve planned and brought a baby carrier so we could walk off-road) We thought from the listing that there would be more nearby however that is our fault for not researching thoroughly. The remoteness would’ve been fine had the pool been in order. The games room was also only for over 16s which we didn’t realise upon booking. Our eldest child did enjoy the tennis court though. The grounds are truly stunning and the property itself was well equipped with board games and books for the children. It was well maintained inside and the views couldn’t be faulted. The tv did not work and so we had to watch DVDs which wasn’t a problem as there were lots of them to choose from and the kids quite liked the novelty of this. There is no phone signal which we didn’t mind but could be a problem for others. The laundry room and sauna are all coin operated so bring coins should you wish to use these. I think this property would be great for a couple who could enjoy local walks and relaxing however, it was not right for our family due to the remoteness of the property and the very disappointing facilities. If you book do not book for the pool as we were so disappointed. We actually left one day early which was such a shame - we had all looked forward to this holiday for a long time and we left deflated.
