About the Owner
Hi, we are Cath and Adrian Elliott, we started life in the Vale of Evesham. But absolutely fell in love with Devon and moved down here about 10 years ago. We now live in Combe Martin in a remote location in a property with an acre of land. As we absolutely love growing and eating our own produce (especially the home produced eggs). Our two kids have recently left the fold and bought their own flats in the thriving street of Mill Street in Bideford (a place we recommend you visit).
Year property purchased: 2011
Why this location?
We purchased Allsorted because we had been looking to buy a holiday cottage for a while, but any previous properties just did not have the wow factor for us. But we immediately fell in love with Allsorted as soon as we went through the front door. Even mum gave it nine out of ten (you could have knocked me down with a feather) some other houses had scored as low as two with her. It is a quirky sort of property, but is has a positive, happy feel about it which seems immediately relaxing.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Due to the remoteness of our house in Combe Martin, we find it an absolute pleasure when we stay in Allsorted, everything is just so handy. Supermarkets and local shops, literally five minutes walk over the old bridge (no need to get the car out!!!). For several years if we fancied a take away it would be a major expedition, we could not believe our luck at Allsorted you can have an array of different take aways delivered to your front door.
