  • 5 of 5

Lovely quirky house with all possible facilities, including an indoor pool. 11 of us oldies had a fantastic holiday, exploring the area, pubs, walks, swims, beaches, the garden. Very helpful hosts and information provided. The website and photos give a good impression of the reality, go if you can.

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time at this property, plenty of room and the swimming pool was a good size!

Had plenty of days playing cricket in the garden and the local village hall was brilliant...free use of the tennis court, rackets and balls!!

Thank you for an amazing time!

Home House is nestled in the heart of Combeinteignhead, a picture perfect village filled with thatched cottages and an award winning village pub. The area offers plenty to do; you are less than 3 miles from a choice of beaches or the charming yacht-lovers’ village of Shaldon, a ten minute walk from the Teign Estuary where there is sailing and windsurfing available and within 5 miles of the seaside fun of Torbay and the English Riviera. There’s golf, there’s fishing, there’s cycling and there are fabulous walks both locally from the house and amongst the wilds of Dartmoor all within half an hour’s drive.
