10/10 - Sleeps 12 were brilliant from start to finish. The house was excellent but the swimming pool was the centrepiece. The BBQ was used every day. Although we didn't use the BBQ lodge it was still a useful bad weather reserve. The Air Conditioning in the Conservatory wasn't working but it wasn't really a problem. The owner paid back our security deposit but the time we arrived home so a big thank you to Mel for that also. All in all we were really happy with everything. Finally we were so impressed with Sleeps 12 we had already booked for next year before this holiday. Thanks to all of you and best wishes for a successful future. -  Hart - August 2019

10/10 - House had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The quick return of the security deposit was great to see. 10/10 - Bridgman - July 2019

8/10 - Swimming pool very good. We can recommend days out to Escot Wildlife Park, Honiton Pottery, Lyme Regis and Tiverton Museum. - Compton - July 2019

10/10 - Every thing was perfect xx - Thorne - June 2019

8/10 The view is stunning, the sun room was a favourite place for all of our party. Everyone commented how relaxing the house felt. The pool is big and warm - we brought our own inflatable toys for the toddlers in the party but some noodles or small inflatables would be a useful addition. The sauna was lovely to have, though it could have been a lot hotter - but seeing daylight through the walls probably wasn't helping there. Fabulous hot tub and trampoline and climbing equipment. Also a second fridge in the utility for cooling drinks would have been very useful as the fridge was full with food when catering for 8 for a week. The house is well thought through for occupancy by a large group with lots of places to be in and spread out. The facilites were excellent. The hard flooring and functional blinds did make sound carry and echo around, especially at night with a baby and a toddler in the group. Some directions for walking from the house would be very useful and also an Ordnance Survey map would help, we usually find this in other rental houses. We cooked all meals for the week so a bit more equipment like a sieve, blender, mixing bowls would have been helpful. Generally an excellent house. - Heath - May 2019

10/10 - The whole experience was amazing! Wayside house had thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable! I think one of the experiences which was really enjoyed by us all was cooking out in the bbq hut. To be honest there was so much to do at the wayside house we didn’t need to venture out. - Purseglove - February 2019

7/10 - The facilities of the property were excellent. The rooms and the kitchen appliances were well stocked with all that you could need. The games room was great and the number of TVs made for no arguments over the use. The pool was a little cold on a couple of days despite putting the cover on at night. Also the hot tub did need topping up almost every day. There were also a rather large number of 'laminates' around the property that constantly giving rules and warnings about potential imposed costs - hot tub, BBQ, toilets etc. Whilst I appreciate that the owners want the facilities to be used responsibly, the way they were phrased meant that I was immediately on edge and paranoid about what everyone was doing. This did not make for a completely relaxing time. No place to hang washing inside (or drying rail) that could not be tumbled dried. - Markwick - December 2018

8/10 - Lovely relaxing time with family. - Clarke - December 2018

10/10 - Great facilities and very comfortable. - Cann - November 2018

8/10 - So many facilities, made use of everything! Particularly loved having a bbq whilst it poured with rain outside! The only issue was the windows let in the rain and wind so made for a noisy night and water on the windowsill. - Swan - November 2018

9/10 - Excellent facilities, barbecue lodge a great evening of togetherness, swiming pool excellent for all ages, plenty for young ones to enjoy. Heat room great experience once controls understood, would be ideal for a poster clearly explaining settings etc was available in the heat room itself. 
Jacuzzi excellent although water level dropped and no means for topping up but overall all facilities exceeded expectations of all.
- Coughlan - November 2018

8/10 - The property was lovely and great for our family holiday. We had a problem with the shower in the annex, which was fixed within a few hours of reporting. There was also a strong smell in the annex, this was also sorted within hours. The only negative, is that we were told the swimming pool was going to be cleaned during our stay and it was not. We had to clean the pool ourselves. We can recommend a day out to Exmouth Beach. - Watson - October 2018

Response: "Wayside pool is cleaned/vacuumed on Monday, Wednesday & Friday mornings. All other mornings it is checked very early (usually about 6.30am so as not to disturb guests) and if they need to be cleaned/vacuumed this is then done. Nets are also provided for the guests during their stay." - Owner

10/10 - The house and facilities were excellent, everything we were expecting. - Sheffield - October 2018

10/10 - Loved the views and the fact we weren’t overlooked. The employees were all so friendly and welcoming. Pool & hot tub were amazing, found it difficult to get the sauna very hot, but that could have been just us. We made use of all the games equipment. Not enough toilet rolls for an all girl party, ha ha. Basically we loved it all, thank you so much, my weekend could not have been better. - Sweeney - September 2018

10/10 - Everything perfect. - Strike - September 2018

10/10 - The house in general was amazing suited all our needs and plenty to do what a great place to stay in! Would definitely recommend. Clay pigeon shooting was a great experience. - Mcivor - August 2018

8/10 - Property needs more repellents for the flies and wasp, like door streamers etc, just too many came in every day and couldn't relax. Visited Torquay and Quad World. - Taylor-Salmon - August 2018

10/10 - Loved the whole property it's a credit to you. The only fly in the ointment were the donkeys they brayed through the night at 3am, 4 ish, 5ish and 6ish we slept badly as a result. Because of this and we would not return to this particular property. The kitchen sink plug allows water to seep away; a washing up bowl would be very useful and less wasteful. Apart from that it was heaven thank you so much. CrealysLyme RegisCharmouth beach. Lovely riverside walk opposite Culm Valley Inn. For a fab cream tea 10/10 and beautiful gardens nearby Kia-Ora Farm Gardens ring first though ... Mary was wonderful. - Finn - July 2018

10/10 - The house and surroundings were beautiful. Perfect for a relaxing week. - Barram - June 2018

9/10 - We can recommend days out to Sidmouth/Jurassic Coast. Too many 'dont' signs - clearly catering for the inept. Difficult to fully relax. Despite an already ridiculous 9.30am check-out, someone attended the property at 8am to clean the pool (not final swim then) and a cleaner at 8.30am. Ended up leaving at 9am. 
I have issues paying £500 deposits 4 weeks ahead of my stay. Security deposits are to cover damage whilst in attendance. As long as cleared funds are received before arrival then this should suffice. Being hounded a month in advance is not good and is also somewhat off-putting.- 
Manning - June 2018

10/10 - Beautiful house, beautiful setting and everything you need is there for a lovely stay. - Wallis - June 2018

10/10 - Once we arrived at Wayside on Friday we didn't leave until check out! Fantastic property!! Brilliantly equiped, great info tour given at the start. Loved the touches such as the coffee and tea being supplied, the complimentary toilletries etc. We had a fantastic time and would certainly return!  We would highly recommend the in house spa extra available. The 3 ladies we had were brilliant! Perfect end to a perfect weekend. - Birch - June 2018

10/10 - The house was incredible from start to finish we stayed in all weekend as we wanted to make the most of the house. Simply stunning house and views, immaculate with everything you could possibly need. We used spa people from on the sleeps12 website also and can not recommend them enough they were fantastic. - Corps - June 2018

10/10 - The property was perfect. Given the winter time of our visit, it would have been nice to have a hot tub in the pool area. We liked the canal walks just outside of Tiverton which is 15 minutes from Wayside. - Murphy Party - December 2017

10/10 - We had Gayla (listed on your EXTRAS activities) come in on the Saturday to cook for us and it was AMAZINGGGGGGGG! The music speaker is great, the pool was lovely. We truely had an absolutely amazing hen party. Thank you so much! - Woolgar Hen Party - November 2017

9/10 - We enjoyed the games room and the swimming pool - Just everything really! Although the WiFi could do with boosting. We'd recommend visits to Red House Escape Rooms in Exeter and Mansell Raceway at Dunkeswell.  - Baker Group - November 2017
