Our home

Our home is a very pretty period country house which dates back to the 1830's sympathetically restored to create a peaceful country home with all modern conveniences and appliance's.Friends say they love to come and stay, as they sleep so well. We also have a farm shop 1 minute from the house which provides wonderful local produce. The house is designed to be comfortable as possible with large oversized sofas, a wonderful open fire, (we do have central heating too) and a formal dining room. The two double rooms on the 2nd floor both have en suite shower rooms while the two room on the floor below share a bathroom. We have lived in the house for 9 years and just love it!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

For most of the year, our home is a very comfortable guest house. We would be happy for you to come as our house guests which would allow you to come whenever you wish. The location is truly beautiful 2 miles from the dramatic Jurassic coastline, and away from the hustle and bustle of Exmouth town. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside. We have wonderful walks all around us and you can walk along the top of Woodbury Common and see spectacular views over the coast. We have two pretty lakes within a 10 minute walk from the house. There are rivers with wildlife a short distance away. The magnificent cathedral of Exeter is only 20 minutes drive, with a brand new multi million pound shopping centre. We also have great restaurants locally, with international food plus Pubs, cafes, etc. We have very fine dining at the top end with Coombe House and The famous Gidleigh Park Hotel within 40 mins drive. Exmouth has all the local shops that you need for your stay. The people are exceptionally friendly will be only to pleased to help you with any questions or queries. We are very well located for seeing all the sights, Castles, Country houses, Beaches, not forgetting the famous Dartmoor (with wild ponies) and Exmoor National Parks, all within half an hour to an hours drive. The Eden project and Cornwall is within a 2 hour drive, as is Bath and the mystical ancient town of Glastonbury.
