    > Nestled in the heart of Devonshire countryside this privately owned country estate boasts a selection of cottages of varying sizes just waiting to be enjoyed.
    Sleeping from 4 to 28 people (refs: HDDE, HGGL, HHX, HJJD, HOOT, HHY, HXN, HNNF, HHZ, HJA), this makes for a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a relaxing break with family or for larger groups looking for a base for that special occasion in glorious surroundings. A shared indoor heated swimming pool is very close to the properties (apart from HGGL which is 1 mile away and has its own pool), sauna and indoor and outdoor playgrounds are also available.
    The cottages are well presented and have been lovingly maintained throughout. All have leather suites and either Italian tiled or wooden floors, and some even boast oak beams. For that extra special treat an in house chef is also available for hire.
    Exploring the area will uncover lots of opportunities including Ashcombe outdoor activity centre (chargeable), offering paintballing, archery, fishing and quad biking for over 14’s. Outdoor, hands on activities can also be enjoyed at the camp in the woods where trained staff teach youngsters how to light fires, search for bugs and build shelters. Outside adventure also waits at Dartmoor National Park, which is easily accessible. Explore on foot or bicycle, an ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
    The city of Exeter is only 20 minutes by car with its selection of museums, art galleries and plenty of shopping opportunities while the coast provides beaches, coastal walks and lovely scenery.
    Admire the fishing boats at Beer or the water sports at Salcombe. There truly is so much to enjoy.
    The good selection of theme parks and zoos the area provides will be sure to keep children entertained and the well-known Eden Project is within an hours’ drive.

    A lovely house that made for a great holiday and family reunion for our extended family with ages ranging from nearly 90 to 4 months. The local play areas, swimming pool and pool table provided hours of fun, especially when the weather was poor. The house was very spacious and comfortable with a lovely large kitchen that catered for all 15 of us; a super sized dining room, lounge and table in the kitchen meant we could spread out as well as eat and socialise together. The number of en-suites and bathrooms meant that there was never pressure for the bathrooms. The back garden was a lovely little sun trap and the BBQ was a great addition making catering for that number easier. We had a wonderful time despite rather iffy weather at times.

    really well located with beautiful views, a games room, a pool and an activity area for children. Close to beaches Dawlish 4 miles away. Only slight problem no connections to mobile phone and house internet connection poor. Staff very helpful and responsive to issues raised. Overall a great holiday location and house.

    A lovely house out in the wilds. The swimming pool and games area were essential but very good. Like most holiday cottages it seemed a bit stark but you could not fault the house itself. It was perfect for 15 of us. The access lanes were not for the faint hearted.

    Booked for a three generations family holiday with the swimming pool being a key factor for the children's entertainment and this didn't fail. I was bit disappointed with the equipment, the Cambridge Audio speaker would not connect by Bluetooth, the fridge light didn't work and the dishwasher detergent dispenser was broken. Also was surprised to find that on 'changeover day' the reception was closed. With no phone reception the only contact was by email. Also disappointed with lack of any welcome pack, not even a pint of milk. On the plus side the house is close to the swimming pool, has dedicated car parking for three to four cars, a small garden area with tables and chairs and a Weber BBQ. The bedrooms are spacious and bath and shower rooms are good,

    A great location and sizable property for a big group. Great facilities. A shame the aga wouldn’t warm up enough to cook anything. Luckily there was a separate small over and hob. The owner popped round to check how we were doing and organised for the aga to be fixed the following day.

    Lovely, well equipped cottage, very comfortable and roomy for the 7 adults and 7 children in our party! Outdoor patio is a fab spot for a bbq but could do with a shady area or at least a couple of parasols but other than that it was superb, thank you ?

    Absolutely loved it! Very friendly locals, gorgeous surroundings and plenty to do in good weather. It was ample space for 14 of us with kids ranged between 3 and 11 who had a great time. Would certainly return for a group holiday. Thank you Ralph and team it's a lovely place to spend with family.

    14 of us aged between 5 and 45 had a lovely stay at the cottage. We holiday every new year at different places. This cottage was lovely and warm and had a vast amount of utensil, dishes, saucepans etc. The only downside I found to be was that there is only one sitting room combined with a Dining room, it was spacious but for 3 families I prefer another separate room for the children or the adults to have some space. Bedrooms were all of a good size, and the kitchen was big enough to cook for our large group. The heated pool directly opposite was fantastic and the children went in twice a day every day. Overall I would recommend this cottage but think I would look for a bigger living area next year.

    This was our 2nd year at Endeavour, and just as good second time around. We were a family group of 6 adults and 5 children, and everyone loved the cottage. The views are beautiful, the cottage has plenty of space and is well equipped. The pool was a real bonus and was used at least once a day. During our stay the water was turned off for a few hours due to a burst water main nearby. The owner was very helpful and supplied us with some large bottles of water to tide us over. Although Endeavour is deep into the countryside, (watch out for pheasants on the lanes!!) there are plenty of attractions within easy reach. Becky Falls was a great favourite, we all loved Dawlish, and catching a steam train from Goodrington Sands to Kingswear, a ferry to Dartmouth, then a little boat to Dartmouth castle was a great day out. One word of warning - don't run out of petrol as petrol stations are few and far between! Overall, a wonderful holiday experience.
