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 Kingsbridge

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.

Prefect in everyway.........Our second vist and wont be the last.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to the Coach House and we cant get enough of it. It has everythng you need and more for the perfect stay.

The kitchen is fully equipped and very spacious with everything you need.

We love the log burner in the living room which again is very spacious but very cosy. The bedrooms are stunning with a great bathroom too. The whole place is decorated to a very high standard and has a relaxing feel.

The Coach House is located prefectly for you to explore and see the surrounding areas.

We have been visiting south Devon for 10 years and cannot wait to return as this is by far the best accommodation and location there is.

Thank you to David and Mary Horne for this absolute gem in beautiful Devon.

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought the cottage was excellent and very comfortable, with one exception. The double bed did not provide the same level of comfort as the rest of the furniture. It creaked a lot and one person moving or turning over inevitably disturbed the other.

Apart from that, we could not fault the cottage, or its equipment at all. Thank you

Owner's Response: Apologies for the problem with the double bed. We weren't aware of the problem and will either repair it, or replace it. David Horne

Perfect location & totally loved the cottage

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well equipped for all our needs. Very much home from home with all the contents which made a perfect stay very easy and enjoyable. Explored all the local area and experienced the very narrow roads but definitely worth it to visit the lovely beaches etc. Many thanks for the use of your lovely property and a very enjoyable holiday. Would definitely recommend.
