Looking for a house / apartment to spend a week in school hols
Beautiful, large, unusual old house in centre of S Devon village. 5 mins drive from sea. Lovely views of Teign Estuary & rolling hills. Spacious, high ceilings & original fireplaces. The kitchen is 8 mx6.1 m & v well equipped (photo shows before renovation!) There are 2 large receptions (incl. a ballroom) & an entrance conservatory 9m x 5m. The garden is pretty: 1/3 acre, great views, large patio and lawn, totally enclosed. We have 2 children (11 and 10) & are equipped for kids, but some steps with wide-spaced banisters make house unsuitable for young toddlers. All 4 bedrooms are large enough for a double bed; there are 2 double rooms & 2 rooms with a single bed. The master bedroom has a super King Size bed, open fire, views and en-suite shower room. Area Details Quiet, friendly village with shop, post office & 3 pubs. 2 miles from family-friendly beaches in Teignmouth; 15 mins drive from Dartmoor National Park; 20 mins drive from historic Exeter. We can recommend a babysitter. Plenty to do - beaches (5 mins), river 10 mins walk, quiet National Trust land and country lanes for walks from village. Or the busier resort features of Torbay (English Riviera) about 30 mins drive if that's more your thing.
The house is full of character - you will not be disappointed!
At least 2 golf courses nearby (3 mins drive: Teignmouth, 10 mins drive: Stover)
Sea fishing and boat hire at Teignouth (5 mins drive). Travel Details We are close to Newton Abbot and Teignmouth train stations (3.5 hrs to London)
Local buses run 6 days/week
Only 20 mins drive from Exeter; 45 mins drive from Plymouth
