About Marian Brooks

We are husband and wife and close by therefore available when needed. Other than that we keep well out of the way after meeting guests and showing them in.

Marian Brooks purchased this house in 2003

Why Marian Brooks chose Kingsbridge

We had a holiday home in this lovely area. When Church House came up for sale as a semi derelict building we decided it would be a fun and attractive project. Hence Church House was once the alms house for the village it is now a beautiful sunny all new property in a an area of outstanding natural beauty and protected coastline.

What makes this house unique

Church House is ideal for guests who enjoy get togethers with family and friends yet gives one privacy. The garden is a sun trap and very safe and secure for families with small children. The Milbrook Inn over the road offers good food and is a popular with young and not so young.
