About the Owner

This is family run property in the middle of the Spreacombe Estate.

Georgina Dennis lives on the estate, in Spreacombe Manor, after having moved here in 2011 from the Midlands with her son and husband.

Norman and Diana Dennis are also on hand to answer any queries, they have been involved in the holiday business for a number of years.

Between us we enjoy maintaining the woodland paths, ponds and have a few sheep and hens on site.

Dawn H, Sept '13 “sheer bliss”

I love it here.

Peace and tranquility.

Will be back soon with 4 or 5 generations of my family :-)

Ian B. Sept '13

“Mixed weather but still had a great time”

We have been so many times that we know exactly what we are going to get. Spreacombe is a haven of peace and beauty and we feel very lucky to have found it so many years ago.

From the Owner

My husband had always wanted to move back to Devon, his childhood home but work had moved us around the country. In 2011 the timing was right and we moved to the peaceful, beautiful Spreacombe Valley. We have dogs that we enjoy walking and find it so special to be able to head to the beach for a few hours at the weekend.

From the Owner

Guests love coming here for the restful peace but enjoy the fact that they can easily get to the busier seaside villages if they choose. Holidays here can be very active, guests walk around our Estate, cycle on the off road Tarka Trail or just head to the beach to read a book and sample the local cream teas.
