10/10 - The house was just perfect and catered very well for a large group. The little details in each room and the high tech spec was fantastic. I would highly recommend this property to others and Gary the owner was very helpful. The fixtures and fitting were all high spec, the pool area fabulous and a great amount of garden and living space. - Bhamla - May 2019

10/10 - This is definitely the best property we've ever stayed in. Shires has everything a family needs; fabulous kitchen/ dining area, indoor heated pool, hot tub, sauna, cinema room, barbeque hut, children's play area and hi tech throughout. This is the ideal property for a family break at any time of the year. A lot of thought had gone into the planning of this property to make it what it is - exceptional  We visited Lyme Regis harbour which was lovely but in all honesty we had absolutely no need to venture outside of Shires as we had everything there we could possible want during our stay. Gary, the owner, was super helpful and the best host ever! - Coleman - May 2019

10/10 - We were the first booking for The Shires and Gary and Rachel (the owners) are lovely and made us very welcome. Obviously with a new property there are teething problems, which were all resolved immediately, but this wasn't a problem for us and we would certainly recommend The Shires. Lovely location with loads to do. As we were only away for the weekend to celebrate big birthdays with the family we spent most of the time at the property enjoying the pool etc. Visited Brancombe and did the NT cliff walk to the village (forge; Bakery cafe, farm, church), Sidmouth for a walk along the sea front with our old dog. - Corlett - May 2019
