About Chris and Carol Heard

We moved down from Surrey in Dec 2013 looking for a location closer to the family farm in Hartland.

Chris was born and brought up North Devon and as a result has a wealth of local knowledge which he happily passes on to any guest that needs direction.

We love the peace and tranquillity at the Pines and live here happily with out friendly Boxer Daisy.

Chris and Carol Heard purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Chris and Carol Heard chose Bideford

Eastleigh is a peaceful little hamlet 3 miles from Bideford and 9 miles from Barnstaple, We are 3 miles from the beach at Instow with its pubs and restaurants and close to many local attractions such as cycling on the Tarka trail Golf on one of the many courses, walking the many picturesque coastal paths or on Exmoor. Surfing at Westward Ho, Woolacoombe or Croyde & Bude or seeking out local produce at the farmers markets in Appledore,Barnstaple or Bideford.

Lynton and Lynmouth are a 45 minute drive away and the beautiful gardens of Rosemoor are a must for all gardeners. Not forgetting the cream teas so expertly done at Duncton Mill & the Hockings ice cream, the area is crammed with wonderful things to while away the time come rain or shine.

What makes this apartment unique

Well established gardens, orchard and grounds extending to 7 acres with lovely views. Popular local pub within 1.25 miles. Many local walks.
