The Corner House, Oct 2019
Fabulous. Love the house. Great position in a wonderful seaside town.
Thanks so much Terry, I’m delighted you both enjoyed your stay at the Corner House - thank you so much also for leaving it really immaculate! Much appreciated.
Easy and relaxing
This house is thoughtfully furnished with quality furniture. The beds were comfortable -- not too firm and not too soft. The sofas had high backs and weren't slippery leather. There were a variety of chairs and cushions, so we could sit in what suited us. There were many lights to choose from -- some for reading and some for soft lighting.
The kitchen and bathroom were modern and well equipped. The TVs were new. There is a selection of books, DVDs, and games especially for children.
The hostess went out of her way to cater for my perfume intolerances which made it possible for us to stay, and we are very grateful.
In the main shopping area is a wide variety of health food shops, fruit and veg shops, butchers, convenience store, and a Co-op. There is a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs, and takeways (and I didn't have a problem finding ones that would cook off-menu for my food intolerances.) The Yarde Farm ice cream (Devon made with clotted cream) is exceptionally good and widely sold.
There is plenty of browsing opportunities in the independent shops and art galleries, too, and a choice of churches. We also enjoyed the local museum and its walking tour, and the Sunday steam train hustling through!
The beaches have some pebbles and seaweed strands, and the sand isn't the best for sand castles, but many people were enjoying the sand and the swimming with mild breaking waves. We took the beach chairs to the water's edge, just to sit and listen to the sea, and watch the ships.
All is within a 10 minute flat walk from the house. For longer flat walks there is the prom at Teignmouth itself, or from Dawlish station to Dawlish Warren station. There is a hilly coastal path/bike trail over much of this area also for peaceful countryside/woodland walks but there aren't views from these elevated areas.
The children's fenced play area and skateboard area were well used. The Jurassic Park themed mini-golf which is a fun challenge for all ages. You might want to check for special events in the area as there is usually something on.
We thank God that we found this lovely holiday place and Henrietta's warm welcome.
Thank you Susan, for your detailed and positive review of the house and the area, I am sure this will be really helpful for our future guests. It was my pleasure to cater for your specific requirements as you were very clear about these which made it so much easier for me to attend to them suitably. I am so glad the two of you enjoyed your holiday here, and very much hope that we can welcome you back another time.
Great location ideal for families short walk to Beach,Shops and Restaurants
Comfortable corner house in a great location ideal for families The owner has local knowledge and is a great communicator always on hand if you have any problems even booked our parking permit for us Thanks Henrietta had a nice lazy holiday
Hi there Emma and Russell, I was so pleased to hear what a great time you had - and thanks for the lovely note in the visitors book! I hope you will be back soon for another family holiday and a bit more relaxation. Thanks also for leaving the place nice and tidy. Henrietta
brilliant summer vacation
Very well equipt accomadation. Only very few things were missing: Tea pot and small sharp-edged kitchen knife. The children loved their seperate rooms, especially the one in the top was favored. And the DVDs in the evening were helpful to improve our English.
The near beaches allowed us to go swimming every day.
Travelling without a car, the close station was wonderfull with frequent connections in both directions.
It is a very quiet cosy place to stay only during the funfair on the nearby field, we heard the music from over there.
Thanks for your review Anne - I will attend to the kitchen knife and teapot as this is useful feedback! Glad you were able to swim so often - we are lucky to be so close to both beaches, and I’m really pleased to were able to take advantage of this. Henrietta
An absolute gem!
We absolutely loved our stay at The corner House. My kids loved the "secret bedroom" at the top of the house. The bunk bedroom on the same level as the master was also handy for middle of the night bed hopping fun!
The kitchen is well equipped (loved the pod coffee machine) and off the kitchen there is a sweet patio area where you can sit with a morning coffee. The laundry room is off the patio so you can wash and dry all those sandy beach towels (provided) after a day at the beach (just a two minute walk from the property).
The bath room is lovely with a fab deep bath and power shower...all the hot water you could need to wash the sea breeze away....there is an extra WC too which is handy for a family.
The living room has ample room with the two large couches. T.V.'s are situated in the living room and master (with the option to move from the master if required).
I particularly enjoyed the nice clear instructions as to where to find everything in the house and what to do in Teignmouth and beyond...very helpful!
Henrietta was truly at our service during our stay, she organized car parking passes for us, found a bathroom scale for me so I could keep on the straight and narrow with my diet (lost 5 pounds...yippee) and she came round to put the heating on prior to our arrival which was so very attentive. Thanks Henrietta!
The welcome basket was such a lovely touch. I enjoyed some of the clotted cream on my strawberries and the rest of the family eagerly enjoyed the scones and homemade jam cream teas.
I cannot wait to come back to this lovely home (it really does feel like your own home while you are there) as it is so close to all the lovely shops, pubs, cafe's that Teignmouth has to offer. With such a lovely contact as Henrietta, you cannot go wrong with choosing The Corner House as your next holiday home .
Thanks again, Henrietta !
I am so thrilled by your review Demelza, thank you so much for such a wonderful review, and I can’t tell you how delighted I am that you and your family had such a great time. I always want people to find the house homely, comfortable and well equipped and your review tells me we have been successful in this. Thank you so much!
