About Joanne Jenkins

For 10 years travelling from my home in Galmpton to work in Totnes I passed Aish House, and always admired its grandeur and thought: one day...

Robert, Will, Lawrence, Olivia, Oscar and I bought Aish House in July 2012 and have had an amazing 5 years cider making, clay pigeon shooting, sheep herding and are looking forward to many more happy times at Aish.

Joanne Jenkins purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Joanne Jenkins chose South Hams

Aish is a quiet hamlet in a perfect location. 5 minutes into Totnes for fab shops, great restaurants. 5 minutes into Stoke Gabriel a small village with pubs and village shop. A lovely play area in the orchard for the children followed by a walk along the river where children love to crab on the millpond. Living in Aish feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by cows, sheep and a variety of wildlife it truly is a calm relaxing place to be.

What makes this apartment unique

Fine grandier of a Georgian family home.

Collect your fresh eggs from the chickens every morning taking in the paddock views with lambs, rabbits and pheasants.

Secluded and private walled east garden with BBQ and picnic bench.

Notes on accommodation: We've a young family so understand the value of a caring and responsible baby sitter; we can't promise to always be able to help you find one, but we're very happy to put you in touch with our local baby sitters. Outside: Aish House is set within 6 acres of mature grounds and orchards and has previously been the home to members of the Elmhirst Family. As such, its formal gardens have benefitted from the fine head gardeners of both the Dartington Estate in Totnes and also Agatha Christie's former local riverside home. The apartment is offered with private use of the beautiful walled East Garden with its resplendent mature trees and shrubs. The East Garden is a wonderful place to unwind, relax and perhaps enjoy a family barbecue. The cider orchard is often grazed by sheep while our 'resident' Barn Owl is a joy to watch. The property borders Hoile Lane (pedestrian mainly) and this is our family walking route to the riverside village of Stoke Gabriel where there are two pubs, a restaurant, a PO, shop and a medieval Parish Church. Our children love to compete against each other while crab-fishing at the Mill Pond adjacent to the River Shack Café. SG's village cricket ground is within earshot! Utility Room: Washing machine, clothes dryer, ironing board, iron. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bedlinen and towels provided, and changed once a week or subject to request. Guests are respectfully requested to bring their own beach towels. Cleaning once a week or subject to request. Other: If you would like to rent the entire house sleeping 17 then please contact Jo 07815980566
