Casa Del Rio, Newton Ferrers, Devon,

Description of the self catering

Casa Del Rio is about 3/4 mile from Newton Ferrers, secluded at the end of a long private drive, Casa Del Rio was built in 1935 by Walter Price after a visit to Beverley Hills. Price was a baker, responsible for introducing sliced bread to the UK from the US. During his US tour he visited Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford at their beautiful home, Pickfair. He was so impressed that on his return to England Price resolved to build a new house, in a magnificent setting, modelled on what he had seen in the US. Casa Del Rio is the result: a little Hollywood glamour in a glorious South Devon location. Built to a Spanish theme around a full-height, central, circular, marble-floored tower, it has typical 1930s Art Deco touches. Off the tower, doors lead to the reception rooms and the master bedroom with balcony and stupendous views over the River Yealm. This is an extraordinary place with exceptional facilities.

Cottage Review:  

House and area is wounderful, word of warning make sure you video the house before you leave otherwise you will get extra cleaning charges. Also if the alarm goes off be prepaired to pay the callout. Other than that a great holiday [Added at Editor's discretion since it appears to be a helpful review and the reviewer has been authenticated]

Cottage Review: Everything about our holiday was just perfect. Booking through helpful holidays was easy and they responded to emails very promptly. Information regarding the property was very accurate in fact Casa Del Rio exceeded all our expections and was the most fabulous place to stay. We will definately be going back and would be more than happy to recommend Helpful Holidays to friends.

Cottage Review: Casa del Rio is the perfect haouse for a celebration. The facilities are outstanding and the location is to die for. We had the best weekend ever and all our guests went away trying to think of reasons they can book this wonderful house.

Cottage Review: Casa del Rio - a most impressive and interesting house with an even more impressive and interesting history! It has a film set feel and makes you feel like you could be in Hollywood. The setting is fantastic and the house has everything you need for a wonderful week away - it's most definately not a home-from-home because I can't believe for one minute there are many homes quite like this one!

Cottage Review: Fabulous, glamourous house. Every bit lives up to the description. Sing along to 'Mamma Mia' in the theatre, then round robin competitions in the games room, including water polo with our own rules kept us very busy. Great fresh fish can be ordered from the fisherman's quay in Plymouth. Lovely shortish walk from nearby Noss Mayo around the coast.

Cottage Review: What a place! We enjoyed a never-to-be-forgotten break at Casa and celebrated a 'big birthday' in real style. The pool, games rooms and cinema were a great hit - Casablanca @ Casa! The house has everything for a really comfy stay - it feels friendly. Authentic 1930s and a wonderful rose garden! It was a privilege to stay for a while.

Cottage Review: Casa Del Rio was a real experience. It was ideal for all our friends to get together there as this house is so large. The swimming pool is like a tropical pool, it's that warm. You don't have to worry about the weather as there's such a lot to keep you entertained at this house. I would highly recommend this house.
