Holiday for all
Party of 8 of mixed ages all with en-suite rooms - so essential when 3 families sharing. Well furnished and equipped but I found the bed only a standard double and not particularly comfortable. Garden very nice. Only negative the road that passes by all vehicles use as a race track and the open drive/courtyard catch draft and make a continuous noise starting quite early in the morning. Easy to visit many places.
Great place to stay for all the family
We stayed here to celebrate my 40th Birthday. There were 7 of us in total plus our dog. The house was huge and really nicely decorated with everything thing you could wish for. It really was like a home from home. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook and eat together. We did fajitas one night and perhaps the knives could have been sharper, it was a struggle chopping onions and peppers with blunt knives but having the space for all of us to help out and sit and eat together was the main reason we chose this place. It was very comfortable, I had the master bedroom with the lovely big, deep bath and really enjoyed using that each morning. My only tiny disappointment was with the pillows, they were very flat! I had to borrow a couple from the spare bed! My fault though as I usually bring my own but forgot this time! The secure and secluded garden was heavenly and our dog was happy as Larry mooching about there and we spent a lovely afternoon sat in the sun together sharing some wine and chatting together. This place really let us do what we envisioned we’d do for my birthday so it really was perfect. It is right on quite a fast road and it took us a night to get used to the sound of the traffic but the beds were comfy and we soon got used to it. We had a lovely meal out at The Holt in Honiton and got a taxi there and back, it wasn’t far and meant we could all have a drink to celebrate my birthday. It was a great location to explore, we drove to Branscombe and took the coastal path to Beer and back again and had a really good time. Overall, Michaels Port was a perfect base for our little trip, had the space and comfort we wanted and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We highly recommend this place and would happily book here again. Thanks for a lovely time away celebrating my birthday!

Great location and accommodation
We really enjoyed our stay in this property.Extremely well equipped and spacious and a great location.
Beautiful house with loads of space and brilliantly equipped
We had a wonderful stay over a very stormy new years weekend. The house is beautiful and had plenty of space for the kids to run free and play even though the weather meant we weren't outside much. The excellently equipped kitchen and big table was great for big family meals and socialising space whilst doing the cooking. It was also so lovely to have all the Christmas decorations and lights up!
Thank you so much for your review
Beautiful home from home in great location.
The house is perfect for groups of people wanting a home from home place to stay. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were spacious with the added bonus of each having its own ensuite. Garden is lovely and the patio area ideal for the summer evenings. Location is great to explore all different areas surrounding the house. Would definitely recommend and return in the future.
