Summer Properties For The Larger Family
When we had less children we would usually stay in a caravan for our summer holiday, but once you have over 8 people that is not an option (apart from the rare occurrence that they have a 4 bedroom available) so we tend to stay in a cottage, it also has all of the home comforts and costs much less than being on a holiday park!
Here are some of my top picks for this Summer.
Hillfield Farmhouse, Dartmouth, sleeps 10 – up to £250 off summer weeks
Hillfield Farmhouse is a spacious and immaculately presented luxury property, fully renovated and available for special holidays and family celebrations. Sleeping up to ten, the accommodation is presented over three floors with five good sized bedrooms, three with large en suite bath or shower rooms. The house also benefits from the use of the facilities at neighbouring Hillfield Village, including an all-weather tennis court, outdoor pool and children’s play area.
Moult Hill Barn, Salcombe, sleeps 10 – up to £300 off summer weeks

Outside there is plenty of parking for up to six cars plus lots of outside space for al fresco dining or for the children to burn off any remaining energy, after a day at the beach!
