“Fantastic property & location”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Absolutely fantastic large thatched property in a fantastic location. Combenteignhead is just a few miles from both Teignmouth & Torquay with Paignton just a short drive away too. The local pubs (Wild Goose about 200 yards away, Combe Cellars (about 10-15 mins stroll) are both excellent with fantastic food and local ales.

The house itself is everything we could have asked for a large group of 14 family members. The house is big enough that at no stage were we tripping over each other and we all had a fantastic time. The lounge has plenty of comfortable seating, the kitchen is fully stocked with just about everything you could need and is a great size with seating for 14 (I think). The Aga is electric and dead easy to use, there is a separate utility room with a gas hob, oven, sink, washing machine and drier. For the kids (of all ages) there is a pool table in the games room and a cinema room with a fantastic projector and loads of dvd's supplied.

All the bedrooms were beautiful and of a good size, with crisp white linen and comfy mattresses. Most the bedrooms have an ensuite or are close to a proper bathroom.

The pool was a big hit with everyone, being heated it was great for early morning swims and is a perfect size for the kids and not too deep (the 7 & 8 year old boys could just stand up ok in it).

The weather was perfect whilst we were there so we did use the garden outside the front of the house and both gardens you have use of are beautiful and well looked after.

I guess the real test of a home like this is whether you would return, and we would, in a heartbeat if we could!

Don't hesitate if you're reading this review and considering booking Home House. Just do it, you wont be disappointed! My son (8 years old) has told me that if we win the lottery that this is the house he wants me to buy, say's it all!

Thanks to Jill and Nigel for a fantastic week!

“Fantastic location - fantastic house and gardens - what a treasure!”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I found this gem through a search on google - and what a find!. The house is spacious and very comfortable, and perfect for my party of 15 who all descended on Devon to celebrate my birthday. Everything that you could want is included - very clean and everything to hand - and we took full advantage of the pool.

The village is picturesque and the pub is a few minutes walk away. We also visited "Coombe Cellars" which is a walk down to the beach - about 10 minutes away. Beautiful outside area where we watched the sun go down on the river.

All of my friends (ages ranging from 25 - 60) cant stop talking about how perfect the house was - and how reasonably priced.

Jill and Nigel were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble both in the run up to the booking and during our stay.

Thank you Home House - you were awesome!

“Such a wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in October 2013

For a friends birthday celebrations we decided to escape to the countryside for a long weekend. Home house offered the perfect getaway, with welcoming owners and a wonderful property (with an indoor heated pool.. Great!) only 100 yards from the local village pub which we frequented most nights. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and anyone else who's looking for a welcoming and friendly place to stay.
