This is a great house on the surface and on all the photos that you get to see ! However this place is very very tired and mouldy and rotten . The bathrooms were very poor mould round the bath round the tiles on the ceiling ,wall paper falling off in nearly every room . The windows in my bedroom were rotten and left gaps all the way round .Infact I have never seen such bad windows except in a derelict building . This also applied to the doors in the indoor pool which were completely rotten and nailed shut , is that even legal for fire safety . So we couldn’t open them and enjoy the area by the pool .which spoilt it for the non swimmers , The outdoor pool wasn’t brilliant full of debris and the ladder that you climb up to get out nearly fell off . The TVs were rubbish and wouldn’t work of the remote ,no WiFi upstairs and hardly any downstairs .also when sat in main hallway at night out flys a bat . . .. the space is good specially if you have kids and they are oblivious of all the stuff that needs doing . But for the money that this cost for a week £7,800 it’s not up to standard and I was disappointed and having stayed in other big houses around the country I would not come back here or recommend it .
ALSTON HALL 9/10/2018
We were looking for a large property with sufficient bathrooms to accommodate our extended family and one dog who were all travelling from different parts of the country to Devon. Alston Hall fitted the criteria perfectly. We arrived at the property and were welcomed and were shown around by the absolutely charming property manager named Rosie, both she and the property exceeded our expectations and although I must admit that the kitchen was more than adequate it could do with a re-vamp but I must say the beds were really comfortable and the property was lovely and warm. Absolutely everything expected was provided with the exception of hairdryers, a small thing when you consider the enormity of the accommodation. The size, comfort, charm, facilities, warmth and character as well as location of Alston Hall takes your breath away. Needless to say we had a fabulous family break and none of us would hesitate for a minute to hire or recommend it again for any large gathering from family to corporate events....it truly is magnificent. Seeing is believing, a brilliant property!!!!!!
