A beautiful rambling thatched house in one of Devon's most delightful hidden villages, Home House is the picture of idyllic rural England. As you wind your way through the lanes, past flower filled hedgerows and through rolling fields to get to the village, you'll see plenty of thatched cottages and you'll pass an award winning traditional pub.

There is Home House, nestling in the valley and bordered by orchards, with a stream running through its spacious sunny garden (both an enclosed walled garden and a larger lawned area), down to its own indoor heated swimming pool. It's a large house – once one of the major farmhouses in the village – and it has been stylishly decorated and smartly furnished to give you the charm of the old with the comfort and chic elegance of the new.

The area offers plenty to do; you are less than 3 miles from a choice of beaches or the charming yacht-lovers' village of Shaldon, a ten minute walk from the Teign Estuary and close to the seaside fun of Torbay and the English Riviera. There's golf, there's fishing, there's cycling and there are the wilds of Dartmoor all within half an hour's drive.

"The perfect retreat"

We went to Home House in October to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday and loved it so much we returned in March for my daughters birthday. It is a fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. There are plenty of lovely bedrooms and some with newly refurbished bathrooms. The gardens are well maintained and there are so many lovely places to sit. The swimming pool is an added bonus and much bigger than expected. Jill and Nigel are extremely accommodating with little personal touches such as fresh flowers and home made cakes on arrival. They provide the essentials ie tea milk coffee and dishwasher tablets. Dean Pavitt is a local breadman who can deliver the best bread around on a daily basis.
We love Home House and hope to return very soon.

"Home House our experience.. Fantastic... :-)"

This was our 2nd stay at Home House. On both occasions we absolutley loved it... I would definately 100% recommend it to anyone with a large family to use...All the rooms are more than adaquate and decorated beautifully.. The walks, views, local pubs and restaurants are all second to none... The owners are very very welcoming leaving cakes for your arrival. A very lovely couple. There is a heated swimming pool for you to use which is kept immaculate.. Its a beautiful home a lovely place to go and stay...

"Make sure you factor in the deposit as part of the cost as the is a good chance it won't be returned."

A little tatty in places but generally ok, and although a little overpriced, the surrounding area more than makes up for any downfalls in the cottage itself. We did in fact have a pleasant week and le… More

We are sorry that we had to withhold the security deposit on this occasion. We have owned and let 2 holiday homes for a total of 7 years and in this time we have never withheld any other security deposits - clearly we would not make this statement if we thought there was a risk that a previous guest might contradict us on Trip Advisor. We have had the same excellent and well trusted cleaners for the past 3 years who manage the house if ever we are away - we have never needed to have a formal “leaving check” as our guests usually treat Home House with respect. We have many guests who love to come back and who repeat book each year – this is what we strive for.
