“This is our third visit to the Cadhay Estate and once again we have enjoyed a delightful week in the Stables instead of the Coach house. It is a joy to look out over the gardens and such beautiful countryside all around us. We really love it here as it is so comfortable – just home to home . Also made to feel so welcome.” – Feb 2017

“Another week of delight…simply stunning borders of flowers in every colour with a backdrop of mellow brick walls. The whole ‘feel’ of the place helped us to unwind far away from the bustle of everyday traffic. It has been so good to return after a gap of three years and nothing has changed in ‘The Stables’ which we love. Cadhay does offer something quite unique and the sense of history of the place is palpable. – July 2017

“This has to be one of my favourite places in the world. We are counting the days until we can return…

Oh Cadhay, one of the best holiday places ever! The stream, the people,the history, the gardens all incredibly beautiful. This is our 2nd visit and things have changed since then but the love, kindness, friendliness and joy is still firmly in its place.” – July 2017

“Cadhay-The place, the people, the weather! And happy memories of Miranda’s wedding (May 2010) – wove its spell yet again.” – August 2017

“Here for a wedding. If the Stables were for sale I/we would buy it. Great location,  great time –  thanks to all the staff.” – Sept 2017

“Cadhay is a wonderful place; every care has been taken to make the Stables a comfortable and well equipped place to stay and the gardens are simply stunning. Waking every morning to the peace and tranquillity of the walled garden, with only the sound of birdsong, was the highlight of the holiday for me. The team at Cadhay made us feel very welcome again, and were wonderful with the children, who now want to go back and live there. I can’t say I blame them.” – July 17

The Cider Press

“In four decades of self catering holidays the Cider Press has to be the best property we’ve stayed at yet. Clean, comfortable, equipped with everything we could possibly need and with such a wonderful view over the Devon countryside.” – July 17

” Cadhay Estate is a beautiful escape to a calm and quiet retreat in a lovely part of the country.  The owner and caretaker are incredibly friendly and helpful. We have now stayed in The Stables and The Coach house, both are beautifully designed and carefully equipped.  We can’t fault the properties at all.  Highly recommended, we will be returning in the future.”
