About Roger Wood

Little Egret has been our holiday home for over 10 years. For 30 years we rented houses in Thurlestone and Salcombe for our family holidays. We have 3 children in their 30s & 40s, who between them have 8 children and a yellow Labrador, and we have 2 black Labradors. So the house is well used throughout the year and is arranged so that it is very comfortable and simple to run. An added attraction for us is that we have a number of friends who live locally. My wife and I stay every month throughout the year as we value the quieter periods outside school holidays to unwind, walk the Labradors along the cliff and beaches, play golf, sail, and eat well.

Roger Wood purchased this house in 2002

Why Roger Wood chose South Hams

We bought it because we wanted sea views without being exposed to strong winds, a few minutes walk to the beaches, the best weather in the UK, and easy access from our home in Surrey.

Our family has holidayed in both Salcombe and Thurlestone for 40+ years because the South Hams has beautiful unspoilt beaches, cliffs, estuaries, rolling countryside, and Dartmoor is on its doorstep. The South Hams has its own micro climate which is often so much warmer and sunnier than the rest of England.

Initially the crowds of Salcombe had some appeal to us. But we have matured to Thurlestone (15 minutes away) so that we benefit from a lovely village by the sea without crowds.

What makes this house unique

Originally our very young and then teenage children fell in love with the variety of seaside things to do. They are now 30 & 40 year olds who love the house and the area so much that their children can't get enough of family holidays at Little Egret. There is always so much to do being 5 mins walk to beaches, surfing, golf, tennis, village pub and shop, and within a short drive of everywhere in the South Hams and Dartmoor.

Good restaurants and pubs abound. Historical places of interest and childrens places of entertainment are within short distances.

Compared with more restricted holiday lets, we offer a fully equipped house, with space and relaxation for two large families or four couples, sea views from the terrace and most rooms, and a safe garden for children and dogs.
