Geat Family Celebration at Buckland House
"Highly recommend this property as a very comfortable, spacious holiday home for a family. We had a great time here. Equipment & facilities were excellent . Games room & all accommodation was suitable for 3 generations of a family ages ranging from 23 to 84 years! We all had a great time. The Queens Arms at Slapton village provided excellent home cooked food."

"This was a lovely big house for a large family like ours to stay the, conservatory and garden was great and having under floor heating was a plus. The location is so good to reach so many interesting places near at hand. It is really well equipped to cater for a large group. Bar billiards was a great hit also. All in all a great place to stay."
