A Christmas "escape"
We needed somewhere very quickly following flooding at our own property and,luckily, we found this. Booking process was easy. When we arrived we quickly settled in and found everything we needed for our stay over Christmas. The property was spacious and well equipped. There was an issue with the washing machine and this was quickly fixed by the extremely friendly team. Pool and spa was well maintained. Did not use the dining facilities or the bar.
Would have been nice to have the house decorated for Christmas but I suspect this is something we should have asked for rather than expected.
Would we stay again, yes. Would we recommend, yes.
A brilliant holiday for three families and a dog. We had a wonderful time. The self-catering facilities in Fairways West even allowed for celebratory cooking and provided plenty of space and privacy for all generations. There is plenty of entertainment at Highbullen for both adults and children with golf, croquet, walking, outdoor swimming etc. Even on the day when it rained there was indoor swimming, the sport simulator and even a fabulous Devon afternoon tea. The childrens' afternoon tea, presented in little secret drawers, was magical and really thrilled the little ones. There is so much space on this country estate that we were totally unaware that the hotel was fully booked for the entire week!
Great family holiday
We stayed as a family party of 3 generations with ages ranging from 8 to 89. Accommodation was stylish and very comfortable - great beds and we all loved the huge sofas. Good outdoor space for BBQ and we enjoyed both the pools.
Only slight problem for older family member was the steps between all the down stairs rooms, including 3 steps from downstairs bedroom to bathroom. And the small step from kitchen to dinning room was a trip hazard for us all! But overall a great stay
Super accommodation in mid Devon
Holiday accommodation was excellent - very clean and comfortable. The facilities available provided great variety for our family with older children. The pool is a good size, the golf course challenging, and tennis courts are in excellent condition. We played croquet and also enjoyed the snooker room whilst having a drink in the evening. We ate out only once in the Laura Ashley Tea Room, but lunch was excellent. South Molton 7 miles away has plenty of shops if self catering, with a Sainsbury’s, an excellent butcher and a cheese shop. We would definitely consider a return visit.
House was lovely, could done more hangers ( only about 20 for 8 of us )and drawers in bedrooms or more shelves.
Toilet seat in en suite kept falling off .
Dissapointed that didn’t say anywhere when booking that no swimming for children between 11 and 1 also when went one day about 5 we where told had to be out at 6 as aqua aerobics but there was nothing to warn us of this so had 2 dissapointed girls.
Having towels at pools nice touch .
Also found the men in the little carts speeding terribly , we where getting out of car to house one day one came so fast I had to pull my son back as he was crossing and walks slowly as has Down’s syndrome, scared him .
Biscuits tea coffee etc nice touch in the house .
Blinds in upstairs loo and downstairs bedroom see through and no privacy glass.
Great facillities for the whole family
We arrived at Highbullen Fairways West and were delighted with the accommodation which suited our requirements perfectly.
I read the information pack which related to the hotel rather than the self catering accommodation but there were no instructions regarding recycling and waste arrangements which would have been helpful. I had to make separate enquiries in that regard.
The garden was extensive but on a couple of occasions a neighbouring dog was allowed to roam and encroach our rear patio which was a concern with small children about. This issue needs to be addressed.
The leisure facilities were excellent and we made full use of the indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts and golf and even enjoyed some croquet on the lawn. Great environment for children who did not want to leave by the end of our stay.
We made limited use of the restaurant facilities as we found them expensive even though we dined one evening and occasionally used the Cellar bar and Golf Club for lunchtime sandwiches which were also expensive for a large family. For an overnight stay at the hotel the prices were more than acceptable but for a weeks self catering regular use of the dining facilities would have somewhat overstretched the budget.
The location was fairly remote for `dining out` at other venues but the reopening of the Exeter Arms should resolve this.
We would definitely return to Highbullen and would prefer to stay on the site if it could compete with surrounding hostelries as this would be far more convenient and provide greater flexibility for families.
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay which could only have been enhanced by more reasonably priced on site catering.
Fairways West ligger på Highbullen Hotel, Golf and Country Club Estate, som ligger høyt på en ås mellom Exmoor og Dartmoor og grenser til elven Taw og River Mole. Gården, som ligger i Chittlehamholt, North Devon, er en nydelig landskapsinnstilling med flott landlig utsikt og hjemmet til mange lokale dyreliv, inkludert rød hjort.
Innenfor selve landsbyen, som ligger bare en kort spasertur unna, er det en god hundevennlig pub, en landsbyens spillefelt og en praktisk butikk som selger daglige n��dvendigheter.
For turgåere er det en overflod av lokale stier og naturstier å utforske, samt skog og åpne landskap. Mange av disse er tilgjengelige fra hytta og eiendom og passer for alle aldre og evner. Syklister vil også elske området med mange landbaner i nærheten; Alternativt kan Tarka Trail, en stort sett trafikkfri asfaltbane, hentes i enten Barnstaple eller Bideford.
Markedsbyen South Molton ligger bare en kort kjøretur fra hytta, og har mye å underholde sine besøkende, inkludert uavhengige butikker, flere puber og kafeer (vi anbefaler et besøk til Corn Dolly) og Quince Honey Farm, som er en familie vennlig attraksjon.
Hvis det kreves en dag på stranden, er det flere innen rekkevidde, inkludert Westward Ho!, Woolacombe, Croyde og Saunton. Disse er blått flagg strender og er patruljert av livvakter fra påske gjennom til slutten av oktober halv sikt. Mange av strendene langs kysten er ideelle for vannsport med surfing som den mest populære. Mindre viker kan også bli funnet langs kysten og kan være flott for å spille i steinbassenger eller nyte et sted med fred og ro.
Hvis du foretrekker å utforske Exmoor, ligger nasjonalparken mindre enn en 30-minutters kjøretur, og er hjemmet til noen vakre te-rom - stopp av ved Lynton og Lynmouth, hvor Exmoor møter havet og ri på Cliff Railway.
