The house was fabulous, as were the gardens. We would definitely like to stay here again.

Mrs Susan R,

The Roundhouse is a unique property that provided a supremely comfortable and relaxed backdrop to our holiday. The owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful.

Previous Customer,

The Round House was perfect for our family holiday. Not only were property and gardens absolutely beautiful, it was extremely well fitted out with everything we could possibly need and the owners were so friendly and helpful. The house was very spacious and ideal for one or two families - plenty of room to spread out and also have your own space - very necessary with several generations holidaying together !

Mrs Caroline B,

It was in an exceptional position for a great view of the local countryside,the sea and ilfracoombe itself , and the owners were fabulous people couldn't fault anything really .

Mr David B,

We would highly recommend it and our friends are thinking of booking it for a family gathering of their own in the future.

Mrs Wendy G,

The owners were great and so helpful and considerate about about helping with anything we needed.We look forward to going back when the wonderful garden is in bloom !
