Accommodation and prices

gitcombe2The properties at Gitcombe House each sleep between two and eight people, and over the summer months you can also rent out Gitcombe House itself, which sleeps 10-12. The cottages are all well equipped and furnished to a high standard, and come with all the necessary equipment (cots, high chairs, bed guards, booster seats) that any visiting family might need. Prices in a four-bed cottage vary from £700-800 per week off season through to £1500-£1700 at the height of the summer holidays.

Child friendly features

gitcombe3Facilities-wise, there’s no shortage of activities to keep children of all ages occupied. There’s a heated indoor swimming pool, another heated pool outside, an indoor playroom including a soft play area, a toy shed, tennis court, basketball net, boules court, adventure playground and fourteen acres of grounds to explore. With those kind of facilities, we can imagine spending a week at Gitcombe House without ever needing to see the rest of Devon!

Parent friendly features

gitcombe1For parents, aside from the knowledge that your children will never be short of something to do, there’s a family-size sauna and steam rooms, outdoor hot tub and sunbathing terrace. The relatively small size of the complex means you’ll rarely be fighting with other guests for space either! The pool is fully fenced so you know the children can’t get access without your knowledge. And there’s a team of baby sitters and child minders available so you make most of the facilities on site, or to ensure you can enjoy a stroll to the local pub (which is within walking distance).

In summary

We absolutely love the look of the Gitcombe House Country Cottages, and come rain or shine, at Parent Friendly Stays we believe you’re bound to have a fantastic family holiday here.
