About Kate Barker

My wife, myself and our 2 boys moved from London to Devon 7 years ago. This was the best thing we've ever done!! It is such a wonderful environment and we have such a great lifestyle here. The whole family love to surf, kayak, swim, snorkel, fish, cycle and go for lovely walks on the national trust coastal paths and luckily we have this all on our doorstep!

Our house is a lovely bright and airy Victorian property with all the conveniences & necessities of modern living with a touch of luxury, just a stones throw from the South Hams coastline.

Kate Barker purchased this house in 2006

Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday!, Kate and Ben have a really lovely cottage we loved the homeliness as well as the seaside feel of the decor, we didn't want to leave, it's walking distance to the town for some great restaurants and the facilities of the town, we tried three of the restaurants recommended by Kate and they were brilliant, kingsbridge is so well located for all the excellent beaches nearby and other places of interest , we certainly will be back and recommend it for a great place to have a holiday.
