""Beautiful house in a great location. Close to pubs, supermarkets but tucked away in a quiet valley. The house was huge and we didn't see (or hear) the kids for hours on end. Good facilities (could have done with another dishwasher and smaller snooker cues for the kids) and the swimming pool was nice and warm. Slightly dodgy decor in the house - could have done without the cherubs in the main bedroom, and the slightly freaky stencils of horror-movie toys on the walls. But didn't spoil a wonderful week.""
""The property was delightful and suited our family gathering with ages 3 to 70. It was fully equipped and cooking on the aga was an interesting experience. An added bonus was the working farm.""
""I have found your website clear and helpful. I would also like to say that our first experience with Helpful Holidays at Christmas was first class. We stayed at Rashleighhayres Farm, Bickleigh. The house was the best we have ever stayed in, there were fourteen of us, from babies to grandparents, and we were all catered for. We would not hesitate to recommend Helpful Holidays to all our friends, and look forward to our next holiday with you.""
""Helpful Holidays were great and the house was delightful - a big thank you and we look forward to booking again.""
""We found S34310 an ideal place for a family get together, suiting both adults and children. We enjoyed good weather which, of course, helped considerably.""
""We had a very relaxing week enjoying the quiet farmland surroundings with all our family.""
""The farm is a lovely place to spend time and we had an idyllic week. The pool is excellent for small children and the house is very spacious. The children and adults loved the cinema room.""
