Our home

Comfortable, light, and spacious family home surrounded by countryside, but just 15 minutes from Exeter by train and 20 minutes' drive from lots of beaches.

Huge garden, with trampoline and tree house for the children. Firepit and BBQ for outdoor dining. We also have a kitchen garden to the side of the house. Our garden is always full of birdsong!

Indoors, we have a large lounge with cosy open fire, kitchen / dining area, two bathrooms (one with a bath and one with a shower), master bedroom (with a view of the garden and countryside beyond) we have two childrens' bedrooms (one single and one double), and another room with a sofa bed on the ground floor.

The pretty village has two pubs and lots of walks. This is a perfect bolthole for your Devon holiday. The house itself is a family home. There is a Playstation and Wii for evenings indoors, as well as board games. You're welcome to bring your well behaved dog(s) as we have two of our own (who will be elsewhere when you visit).

Property features

Who we are

  1. We're a couple with two children. We do have pictures of us the right way up - but the site seems to think we look better this way around :)

  2. John works in IT and I work in Local Government.

  3. We like music and films. We like to run and cycle. We have two crazy (in a good way!) dogs (who will be looked after nearby).
