Vennlane House Devon 8

Vennlane House The South West

One of our best-kept secrets in beautiful South Devon

This is the perfect spot for a wonderful family break, a special celebration, a company getaway or for some time together with old friends. Where should we start? The tennis court? The indoor swimming pool? The outdoor swimming pool? How about the games/cinema room? Or the light-filled sitting room where the light streams in on the spacious, modern space with comfy sofas, a bar and a wood-burning stove? Or perhaps the fully-fitted kitchen and or the wonderful dining area with seating for everyone where you can enjoy splendid convivial meals? Or maybe the raised terraces overlooking the glorious Devon countryside or the gardens or the hot tub or the comfort of the bedrooms or the Moroccan Hammam? Wherever we begin, we can guarantee you won’t want your stay to end.

Guest Reviews

Vennlane House really is incredible - wow, wow, wow! It has everything you could possibly want! The peaceful setting is just wonderful - just what we needed.  We booked for a special birthday celebration and had the most memorable time with our extended family.  We had so much fun with all the amazing facilities with the occasional meander to the beach. We'll no doubt be back, and this time we'll try and tear ourselves away from the house to explore a bit more of the area!

With five acres of beautiful gardens, the outside 15m swimming pool, comfortable sunbeds, wonderful views and Astroturf tennis court, you may never want to leave the property! But if you do, there is plenty to do in wonderful south Devon. The house is just ten minutes by car from Dartmouth, one of our favourite holiday destinations. With its fantastic bistros, wonderful restaurants, bars and cafes, it is a gourmet’s delight. The independent shops, art galleries and the busy market are great for finding original quality artefacts to take home as long term memories of your time in Devon. And there are plenty of activities on offer too. Take a trip on the River Dart, go crabbing or kayaking, visit Agatha Christie’s National Trust House, or spend a lazy afternoon at the beach. Take the kids to the wonderful zoo at Paignton. Or walk, cycle or ride in this area of outstanding natural beauty.

Eating in style

If you are in to self-catering (and we recommend some fresh fish from Dartmouth), the kitchen is wonderfully fitted out with the ability to eat inside or out. Right beside the kitchen our solid wood twenty-seater dining table looks out over the valley and grounds. There’s also plenty of space to sit and relax and just enjoy a coffee (such as the lounge area pictured).  Outside, the heated terrace overlooks the pool and is wonderful for lunch or dining al fresco on the balmy Devon summer evenings. You can always call on our specialist caterers for that special occasion or, if eating out is your thing, you will struggle to find better quality and variety than the wonderful restaurants in nearby Dartmouth.

Comfort and style – even in the bedroom

With eight double en suite bedrooms, each beautifully decorated and wonderfully luxurious, your whole party can stay in comfort and style. The rooms are individually designed and continue the bright and airy feel that permeates this wonderful property.

Experience deluxe entertainment right in the house itself

Fancy a swim? Our indoor heated 12m pool is just the ticket. With its relaxing sofa, sound system and star lit ceiling it is perfect for a rainy afternoon or an evening dip before dinner. Oh! And don’t forget the  Morrocan Hammam! Or why not watch your favourite sports on the 52” TV in the plasma room or chill out in our cinema room with a choice of over 1500 films! Then there’s the pool table, table tennis or there’s always the allure of that log burner – perfect for curling up with a good book or a long chat over coffee. And with beautiful furnishings and delightful artwork everywhere, you really will not feel the need to dash out anywhere.

Private Chef

Whether it's a one-off special celebratory meal, or breakfast, lunch and dinner during your entire stay, we can recommend a highly trained chef to come to cook and serve from your kitchen at Vennlane House. A wonderful way to make your experience extra special.
