Iv lost count of how many times iv chosen to take my holidays here. For the past 8 years iv taken my children, family and friends as well as recommended it to others.
What has always appealed to me about Michaelstow is the fact its so family orientated, run by an ordinary family like us (apart from the fact they live in this beautiful manor house with its wonderful grounds which i envy). Yes the accomodation is basic, but it is comfortable and everything you need is there. You cannot fault the staff for trying so hard to cater for everyone. The grounds are so well maintained, just stop and look at those beautiful old trees. Have you ever explored the nearby beauty spots on the moors? The manor house is really beautiful, i would love to know more of its history. My kids and i sit telling each other ghost stories in the grounds and have such a laugh encouraging each other to make up stories. Have you noticed that stained glass window in the bar, this place holds so much history.
Iv heard people complain about lack of changing rooms in the pool, yes it was strange to us at first as well, but now its a standing joke about going back to the bungalow from the pool, specialy when its raining, we laugh about it because were on holiday and we go on holiday to have fun, make the best of every moment and go home with more happy memories of Michaelstow manor and the lovely people i always seem to meet there.
We all expect different standards from our holidays. If i was paying for the ritz then id expect ritz standards, but im sure it wouldnt be half as much fun as Michaelstow. Cant wait to be back there again.
