Set in the heart of rolling Devon countryside, the privately owned Ashcombe country estate nestles in a quiet, beautiful valley filled with things to do and a short drive from the sandy beaches of Dawlish and Torquay. Enjoy walking around the estate’s hills and woodlands, swim in the heated indoor swimming pool, or relax in the sauna at Woodhouse Farm while children play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds. Both The Cider Barn, a mile away and sleeping 16, and Nut Tree Farm, sleeping 28, have their own outdoor swimming pools for the summer.
The cottages are both comfortable and practical, with a wide range of Devon attractions right on the doorstep. All are maintained to very high standards with leather sofas, Wi-Fi, flatscreen digital TVs and very comfortable beds. Many retain original features, including oak beamed ceilings, and all have either Italian-tiled or wooden floors.
Sleeping from 4 to 22 people, and rated either 4 or 5 stars, the cottages can accommodate almost any party size, and an in-house chef (arranged direct with the owner) can be booked to take care of the catering.
The brilliant Ashcombe Adventure Centre for outdoor activities, is just under a mile down the lane. Available at extra cost for those 14 years and over, it offers quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing and more. Also located on the estate is ’A Touch of the Wild’, a camp-based forest activity club. Children can take part in bush-craft courses and activities ranging from camp fire cooking and toasting marshmallows to bug hunting and learning woodland skills - a day with the experienced staff will ensure youngsters come away with a new found love of the great outdoors. The Ashcombe Village Club opens on various evenings providing cheap beer in a cheerful atmosphere, event evenings, traditional summer fêtes and shows.
Both Dartmoor National Park and the historic city of Exeter are only a 20-minute drive away, while the famous South Devon Coast, with wonderful sandy beaches, is barely 3 miles. Exeter and Newton Abbot Racecourses, several golf courses, loads of family theme parks, zoos, sailing and fishing are all within easy reach, not to mention the many excellent pubs and restaurants that Devon is famous for. Walk in the wild beauty of Dartmoor with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes, or visit the numerous nearby National Trust properties including Agatha Christie’s house, Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with bustling boat harbour, castle, contemporary art galleries and boutiques and brilliant Regatta Week and Air Show. Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and water sports is also easily accessible, as well as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and picturesque Dittisham. Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive.
All in all Ashcombe is an excellent base from which to explore, experience and enjoy ‘The Cream of Devon’. All big supermarkets deliver direct to your cottage. Main shops 3 miles.

    Endeavour proved a good position for our group to access lots of very interesting places, albeit that its location was rather out in the sticks which necessitated driving on very narrow lanes. The kitchen was spacious and easy to work in but it was tricky for us to know which of the cooking pots & pans were suitable to use on the induction hob so this should be made clearer. We had a problem with the oil fired range which smelt terribly of oil but the maintenance team was quick to respond to our complaint and we were able to have the Aga switched off for the duration of our stay. Bedrooms were comfortable with most en-suite. Could have done with a thorough clean as there were many spiders' webs and much dust on skirting boards & under beds. Lovely to have the use of the swimming pool most days. Confusion over whether or not towels were included in the rent as we understood when booking that they were not but all bedrooms had towels in them when we arrived - would have been good to know that before we packed our cars!

    Wow wow wow. Fabulous cottage with everything you could ever need to house a family of 15. (10 adults and 5 children). Plenty of tables and chairs for dining. We took over the onsite pool at times. Playground for the children was safe and the estate was great. The Cat befriended everyone and was really good not to come in the cottage. The village club opened just for us as we were there between their skittle seasons so was closed in the week for 2 weeks. All the staff we met on site were pleasant, along with the local residents. We booked our food delivery from Asda as the nearest supermarket is either Dawlish or Teignmouth down country lanes.

    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.
