    An absolutely fantastic place. The children loved the amazing animals (very friendly) and the fabulous pool (clean, warm and quiet). There is so much to do in the local area, for children and adults, we ran out of days!! We will be going back again though so it’s no big deal. The hosts are lovely and their ‘local guide book’ in the cottage was a wealth of information. Can’t rate The Pound House highly enough

    We had a wonderful break. The cottage was clean & very comfortable and the swimming pool was brilliant. The owners were very friendly & approachable. Our children loved all the animals. We’ll definitely be making a return visit.

    A very nice cottage, well presented with a friendly welcome from the owner. It feels tucked away but there are large supermarkets less than a 10 minute drive away. The outdoor pool is fabulous and really warm. The bedrooms are nice and well presented. The living space is good and the kitchen, although typically quite small in a cottage, has perfectly good, working oven, hob, fridge/freezer and washing machine. The outside space is lovely. Aside from the pool there is a field with various animals that our children loved and there is a good lawn area for games. Good parking space too. Paignton, Torquay and Brixham are in very easy reach and there is simply loads to do in the area including beaches, a zoo, Living Coasts, steam trains, castles, caves, a model village, seaside amusements and lovely countryside.

    We have just stayed at The Pound House for a week in May half term. Wow! What a great location and beautiful cottage. There is a field right next to the cottage with llamas, pigs, chickens, peacocks, ducks and a goat. Our children loved seeing them every day and the animals really made our visit extra special. The bedrooms were lovely and clean, the beds were very comfy. We used the heated pool which was alot of fun. There was also a large trampoline and swing in the garden for the children to play on. The owner was very friendly and helpful. It was only a 10 minute drive to Paignton and roughly a 20 minute drive to Torquay. Would highly recommend this great little country cottage.

    We had a lovely 5nights over the Easter holidays. The cottage was very welcoming and was the owner . If we go to Devon again, we’ll definitely consider to stay there again . We tried to book a week in August but unfortunately it was fully booked.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Pound House. It was cosy, clean and well equipped and the wood burner made all the difference in the cool evenings. The location was excellent, there was a local pub, supermarket and even the zoo within a 10min drive. Plus the added bonus of being on a small farm with alpacas, pigs, chickens & the friendly family dog, Molly. The owners were helpful and welcoming and even left us a small hamper and good bottle of wine on arrival and let us have some fresh eggs for breakfast. We will definitely be back.

    Lovely cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings. Very well-equipped. Owners made us feel very welcome and it was lovely that they gave us some welcome supplies of wood, wine and other goodies! The kids (and adults!) enjoyed meeting the various animals such as Molly the dog and Gordon the goat. Great location as a base for touring this beautiful part of the world. Enjoyed using the wood burner along with the central heating, made it toasty despite cold weather outside! Worth noting that the WiFi was excellent, we used it for streaming of sports, (despite a review saying it wasn't good, they must have been unfortunate that week). Would definitely stay here again if circumstances allow.
