Sleeping 20, Great Horner is fantastic for the whole family. It has superb facilities including games room, play area and crazy golf!

Great Horner consists of the main house and the garden cottage combined, forming spacious holiday accommodation, set in a large garden in rural south Devon. Within the grounds, a large play barn with badminton, table tennis and table football, plus a 12-hole crazy golf course will keep both children and adults entertained. Close to the village of Halwell, it is midway between Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge in a lovely location for both lazy beach days or as a base to explore the region. Totnes, 4 miles, has a unique atmosphere, especially on a Friday when the market comes to town, or enjoy a day at Dartmouth, 7 miles, where visitors can play golf on an 18-hole championship golf course. The main house boasts a spacious dining room with a sitting area, wood-burning stove and a table to seat all 20 people, making it a perfect venue for family celebrations and get togethers. The cottage accommodation, just 20 yards away from the main house, has three bedrooms, kitchen, large living room and dining space.

    This was the ideal place for our family get together and we had a great time. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need - masses of storage space too. It was a particularly cold, windy weekend so we were very grateful for the fabulous central heating and hot water supply. Thank you

    We’ve just come back from a fun filled family weekend away. The property had everything we needed and more. The property is spacious yet comfortable and the play barn was amazing, the kids absolutely loved it.I would definitely recommend.

    Great place for family get together, plenty of space and the games barn is an inspired addition. Very welcoming host and beautiful countryside, friendly local pub.

    15 of us stayed at Great Horner in both the main house and the annex. We couldn't have wished for a better property for a group meet up. So much space in all of the communal areas and all of the bedrooms and en-suites were prefect for our needs. The Games Barn is a great inclusion and we even held a golf tournament during our stay that kept us occupied for hours. The owner is lovely and welcoming, ensuring we were given a tour and informed of any quirks and lots of helpful information about the local area. We all enjoyed the homemade chocolate cake and chocolates provided by the owner and really had the best few days at this property.

    A lovely property with another smaller cottage very close by for big parties of people. Well equipped, very comfortable apart from a hard bed ( but I have back problems). The only downfall to this charming property are the roads to get to it! Otherwise a beautiful place to Be!

    We had an absolutely lovely stay - a huge house and annex with everything you need. A lovely secluded location which was just what we were after. Would highly recommend.

    Our stay at Great Horner was perfect. Close to the beach and lots of peace and quiet to have a catch up with our friends. Our host was so friendly and welcoming and the two houses have us plenty of space to relax. Wonderful weekend and we hope to come back and stay again in the future.

    We had a great family weekend in this lovely accommodation. There were 17 of us, ranging in age from 2 to 83 years old and plenty of room for all. The Games Barn was well used and provided lots of fun. Our host was very welcoming and friendly and had baked a delicious chocolate cake for our arrival. We will definitely be back.
