Home House is nestled in the heart of Combeinteignhead, a picture perfect village filled with thatched cottages and an award winning village pub. 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 where there is sailing and windsurfing available and within 5 miles of the seaside fun of Torbay and the English Riviera. There’s golf, there’s fishing, there’s cycling and there are fabulous walks both locally from the house and amongst the wilds of Dartmoor all within half an hour’s drive.
