About our home

Our house is Art's & Crafts style with a coachhouse where we keep our cars. It has a huge kitchen and aga, utility, entrance, and lounge. We have a basement where the boys play. There are two double rooms with bathrooms on the first floor and two further beds on the second floor where our children sleep.

Outside we have a graveled drive with beds and a lawn. We have 2 adult bikes and 1 teenagers bike, a spring-free trampoline & outdoor ping pong table

We also have Cars to swop if you are up for the challenge of our narrow country roads. We will help you sort out the insurance..

If you motor down to Plymouth you can take a ferry over to Northern France, Jersey or Guernsey, or if you fancy a 24 hour ferry ride, you can take off to Northern Spain. We have the best of both worlds, quintessential England, beautiful beaches and easy access to France. Why not arrange to two centre holiday?

Many thanks for looking at our house.


More about us

  1. We are an English family, Nick, Tina and boys Ollie(18)and Ted(15). We are fortunate to live near Exeter in Devonshire, close to beaches including Sidmouth, Beer, Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Lyme Regis. We are about 3 hours from London on a slow train. We live here because we enjoy the countryside, farmer's markets, beaches, the Moors and outdoor life. We own a Viszla named Orla. We enjoy cycling and walking and eating at great pubs and cafes. British people head to Devon and Cornwall for their holidays! There are an endless number of things to do

    We have a beautiful house. It was the vicarage of our small village and it was divided into two large houses in the 1960's. We have extended it further and have developed our garden, patio and a small veg patch. It is about a third of an acre and is very private. Cows or sheep are in the next field.

    The kitchen has a huge conservatory where we spend all our time as a family. We do have children and the house is very suitable for couples or families.

    We really hope someone will be interested in seeing quintessential England, 3 hours from London. We also own a luxury flat in Exeter and a new static caravan in Polzeath, both are available for your use.

    Come to South West England for your holidays!

  2. We are both lawyers and work for ourselves.

  3. We love adventures with our boys
