“A home from home!”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Myself, my wife and our (nearly) 2 year old child & small dog have recently come back from an amazing, relaxed holiday at Overton House.

My first impression was that every room looked a lot bigger than the photo's we saw on the website, and the view was pretty great too.

It is one of few properties which is in a scenic quiet area, yet conveniently close to nearby towns and villages which is great for day trips.

The owners are friendly & helpful yet respect the peace & quiet you want from a holiday, basically they are there if you need them. The hot tub in the evening is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine ahead of a nightcap!

I would recommend this holiday to anyone else looking for somewhere quiet, with great walks etc yet not too far away from a nice day trip!

“Amazingly picturesque and spacious home from home”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Overton House exceeded all our expectations, it was warm, welcoming, felt so friendly and very spacious...really large square rooms, large kitchen diner- all beautifully decorated- and fantastic far reaching views from nearly every window. The owners lived next door, very friendly on arrival but left us to our own devices which was appreciated. Our 10 year old daughter loved the horses in the owners field, and we all enjoyed the hot tub! I loved the spa bath! Our dog had a great time, there was lots of space indoors and out for him. Fantastic pub/restaurant nearby that allowed dogs indoors. We had a great half term week there and will be booking up for next year.

“An ideal quality holiday property in a great location”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just spent a delightful week at Overton House. It is in a lovely, quite location with great views and the only immediate neighbours being the adjoining owners, who are extremely friendly and there if you want them but totally unobtrusive, along with their friendly dog and a couple of horses. Whilst its seems miles away from everywhere it is in fact within approx 5 minutes of great shopping facilities at Barnstaple, and is in an ideal location for visiting some of North Devon's well known/spectaculor visitor locations, ie Clovelly and Lynton and Lynmouth etc. The property itself is totally self-contained and with its well kept and extremely roomy layout, and facilities that pretty much should meet everybody's needs, we feel it is deserving of it's Gold Award, and we shall undoubtedly return at a future date.

“Incredibly relaxing”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Overton House for two weeks and had a great time.
There's something for everyone. You can go for beautiful walks in the area or stay at the house and read, watch a movie, enjoy the hot tub, ...

We really loved that is was so peaceful and quiet, and the view is amazing.

“Fabulous base to explore Devon or for some Chillaxing in the Hot tub”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My mum and I have just returned today from our weeks holiday at this fabulous house which is a real find in such a fabulous tranquil area. You can choose to relax or enjoy walks of the surrounding area as others have done as indicated in the many positive comments in their guest book. The house is well equipped with a sunken bath for the more romantic of couples or if you are able to and wish to luxuriate on your own. Or you have the use of a down stairs shower room, the best of both worlds, choice is yours. Mum and I loved the use of the hot tub and wish the weather was kinder to us on our weeks holiday. The pictures are a true reflection on how the place looks.
The owners Louisa and Pete with their family are friendly and are a pleasure to chat to but are not intrusive and have ensured their holiday let is family friendly with activities for all. We enjoyed our time listening to the birds and stroking the owners horses in the next field.
