    The house is very comfortable and we loved the period features. and the owner was very welcoming and helpful. We had a great weekend and we will definitely be back for another holiday.

The property

A wondrous manor farmhouse in the midst of the Devonshire countryside, Gitcombe House is a magnificent property encompassed by beautiful grounds and host to a truly elegant interior.

Resting within the Gitcombe Estate amidst several other wonderful properties, this Grade II listed Georgian house provides a large family with an enchanting space to call home while enjoying the delights of Devon.

Original features run throughout this amazing accommodation, such as bespoke joinery, ornate fireplaces, huge sash windows and period furnishings to create a luxurious environment.

Spend long lazy mornings within the country-style kitchen, cooking big breakfasts using the impressive AGA range cooker and full 'batterie de cuisine' at your fingertips while your loved ones eagerly await at the rustic wooden breakfast table.

Spend winter evenings around the grand mahogany dining table and chairs while the fire roars in the background, with conversation and fabulous company flowing.

Retire to the sophisticated sitting room where the tall sash windows can offer the last of the evening light.

Settle here and play a film on the flat screen TV as the day turns to night.

Find yourself within the large enclosed garden in summer time, a perfect spot to drink a morning coffee, later exploring the rest of the grounds, and delighting in the many shared facilities on-site at Gitcombe Estate, with the indoor and outdoor swimming pools ( please note the pool is open between 8am - 8pm) , tennis court, and children's play area being just some of the excellent features.

Find a tranquil space in each of the six bedrooms, with a twin room and a shower room resting on the ground floor, perfect for the older members of the party, or those less able.

Discover the other five rooms on the first floor, including another twin, a king-size, a super-king-size, a triple room with three singles, and finally the master bedroom with a super-king-size bed and a beautiful en-suite bathroom.

Freshen up with a soak in the cast iron slipper bath within the family bathroom, or take a shower within the double walk-in enclosure, while a cloakroom across the landing still has an original 'thunder-box' WC, now modernised to offer a convenient facility.

Enjoy a wondrous escape to Devon and indulge in luxury within the magnificent Gitcombe House.

Gitcombe Estate Cottages

Resting within the beautiful Devonshire countryside on the outskirts of the village of Cornworthy, sits this magnificent collection of nine luxury properties known as the Gitcombe Estate. With accommodation to suit all tastes, requirements and party sizes, properties range from a Grade II listed manor house, to a newly built stylish timber framed property designed by award-winning architects. Cleverly combining contemporary touches, like Bose iPod docking stations, with more traditional features including oak beams and wood burning stoves, the properties present a winning combination for visitors of all ages. Relax in the delightfully furnished living accommodation, cook in the stylish kitchens, or unwind in the spacious 14 acres of the estate. The holiday homes vary in style and sleep between four and 13 guests. On sunny summer days, enjoy an alfresco breakfast or barbecue lunch in your garden. For young party members, the hand-carved children’s adventure playground is the perfect place to for them to burn off any extra energy, whilst for older children and adults in the group, the tennis court is a fabulous spot for a friendly tournament! This impressive complex also has both indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools meaning you can enjoy a leisurely swim, whatever the weather. Relax in the hot tub, sauna or steam room - or simply sit back and watch as the children have fun in the fantastic indoor soft play area. When you want to venture out from this idyllic haven to experience the delights of South Devon, there is a plethora of fun activities and stunning locations just waiting to be explored. For spectacular beaches, head to Blackpool Sands just three-miles west of Dartmouth, or visit popular Salcombe and enjoy its numerous sandy coves. If you are searching for all-weather family attractions, nearby Woodlands Leisure Park and Pennywell Farm (around a 45 minute drive), both offer fantastic days out for those with young children. The incredible Paignton Zoo is also within easy driving distance, home to an exotic variety of animals including lions, tigers, gorillas, and even crocodiles… an entertaining day out no matter your age! For foodies South Devon is home to some of the finest eateries and food producers in the country. Visit the artisan wine and cheese makers at Sharpham Vineyard, or dine in one of the excellent, critically acclaimed restaurants in the region – for example the Seahorse in Dartmouth, where you can enjoy some of the finest fish and shellfish freshly caught along the South Devon coastline. For history buffs, visit the historic Buckfast Abbey which sits along the River Dart, explore Dartmouth Castle perched atop the entrance to the Dart estuary, or experience Dartmouth’s guided Mayflower 400 tour, and learn more about the town’s vibrant past first hand. However, you choose to enjoy your time in South Devon, choose one of the impressive Gitcombe Estate holiday homes for the perfect base from which to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
