About David and Mary Horne

My wife and I have recently retired. We live in a small village called Littlewick Green, near Maidenhead, in Berkshire. It is the archetypal English village, with a cricket pitch, a church and a pub. We have lived there for 23 years; prior to that, we lived in Ealing, in West London. We have two children, both in their twenties. We both enjoy walking, and exploring beautiful countryside.

David and Mary Horne purchased this barn in 2014

Why David and Mary Horne chose South Hams

I first discovered Bantham and Thurlestone during a golf trip to the South Hams some 20 years ago, and immediately fell in love with it. It is designated as an 'area of outstanding natural beauty', which means that there are extremely strict regulations regarding planning permission for development. Bantham village is part of a larger estate, which is privately owned by people who are determined to ensure that the beauty of the location is maintained.

When we retired, my wife and I decided that we would like to buy a holiday home in the area. We were particularly interested in converted barns, so were delighted when one came onto the market. We immediately fell in love with the Coach House, and the beautiful, secluded and peaceful valley in which it is situated, and have taken great pleasure in restoring the property since we bought it in June.

What makes this barn unique

We would like you to share in the pleasure we have enjoyed in visiting this beautiful area, together with the house and the beautiful valley it is situated in.

Lovely well kept property near the beeches

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were blown away with how nice the property was inside, very well kept with everything that you could want.

If I wanted to give any negatives they would be that the main bed was squeaky so we swapped with the kids :) and it would have been nice to have had a better outside area.

In the main though lovely and would definitely stay again and recommend to friends

Lovely well furnished cottage close to a great beach

We really enjoyed our short stay at the coach house. It is a great place, lots of space, well furnished with everything we needed. Very close of Bantham beach which is excellent place to spend time.

Idyllic escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the coach house. Beautifully furnished throughout with all the mod-cons. Excellently positioned to explore all the south-hams area has to offer. Can link to public footpaths easily for local walks and bantham beach was only a short stroll away. Will definitely be returning to enjoy the property in sunnier climates!

We would thoroughly recommend The Coach House

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the way in which the whole of The Coach House has been fitted out, it has a really well equipped kitchen. Its a very cosy house, even we we visited in February, with a lovely wood burner. Its a brilliant location to explore Bantham, Thurlestone, Hope Cove and Salcombe and we would thoroughly recommend it and hope to visit again.
