Like Lisa we are holidaying in Uplyme at Perhams House. I too have an elderly father and there are two little ones in the party also...what are the roads like in that area

Many thanks

Suz

Hi Suz

The main roads are fine, I think Perhams House is at Harcombe, it's fairly rural and it may be that the lane is tricky - I'd speak to the owners or whoever you've booked through to be sure, it may be that approaching from one way is better than another.

Generally, the lanes and pavements are still quite snow covered so I'd make sure your Dad has some decent boots and a walking stick. Don't worry about the little ones, they will love it - I hope you're bringing a sledge for them!

Hope you enjoy your trip!

Suz,

A member of the debate lives at Harcombe and he has not been able to move for days. Unless you have a 4x4 and are confident driving in snowy conditions I would agree with Anita and strongly urge you to contact the cottage owner or agent. See this thread...

Geoff pipped me to the post as I am he who lives in Harcombe.

Perham's House is not in Harcombe although I believe there is a Perham's Farm.

Ahh, the power of Google failed. I struggled to find a location for it, most of the holiday entries don't show the location....http://www.bookcottages.com/cottages/100-DJD-perhams-house.htm

I wonder where it is?

My guess is somewhere around Holcombe.
