After booking our dates we were informed that the pool would not be available for part of our stay but were happily given the option to cancel or rearrange with a discount. We rearranged and are very glad we did. Orchid was clean, tidy, modern, very well equipped, with good quality furnishings. The leisure facilities were great, we had a go at everything and swam every evening to relax. The grounds were very well maintained with plenty of parking, lovely to sit outside for a while before bed listening to the owls, who I hoped would make an appearance... but not this time. Easy wifi connection instructions for us non techy people and all necessary instructions for amenities/facilities at hand in apartment. Orchid has a small stream running by outside and if you keep the bathroom window open you can drop off to sleep to the sound of it trickling by, very soothing. As the property is situated in the countryside we had a very relaxing time, very tranquil. The only down side was the drive along very small lanes, although how else would you be able to enjoy such peace and quiet... maybe I'm just a nervy passenger. Very pleasant and approachable agent taking the bookings. Overall I would highly recommend.

“Well placed and kitted out apartment, shame about the agent”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Lovely apartment in a holiday development. The sensible layout meant it was easy to stay here with our 7 month old, after bedtime we still had access to the bathroom. The flat is very well equiped a result of its long history as a holiday let and includes a washer/dryer and heated towel rail!

The location is a lovely valley within easy striking distance of Salcombe estuary and surrounds. Your country driving will be honed on the narrow lanes, the amazing scenery makes up for the occasional quickened pulse if you meet a tractor...

The caretaker visits every day to check on things and have good advice on the local area.

The negatives the play room was not in use, the wifi was not working and the aged pool heating a bit cool for little ones. The agent who handled booking was very poor (needed chasing for details and then supplied the wrong properties).

The Orchid Apartment was wonderfully kitted out with everything you might need. Facilities at Stancombe Manor are second to none and wonderful beaches are only a 10 minute drive away, as are superb pubs/restaurants. I haven't visited Devon since I was a child but it was as glorious a holiday as I remembered and our grandchildren enjoyed it just as much as I did when I was their age!
