Abbotskerswell house description

Home House is a pretty eight bedroomed thatched house situated in a picture perfect South Devon village close to the sea. The house sleeps 15 people and has 5 bathrooms, 4 of which are en-suite. There is a welcoming beamed living room with lots of comfortable chairs and sofas and a wood burner in a lovely inglenook fireplace for the chilly days - or the sunny summerhouse with its own grapevine in which to unwind in the sunshine. There is a cosy well equipped kitchen with an Aga and a large convivial table for you all to gather around, as well as a barbecue and outdoor tables and chairs for al fresco meals.
As well as the heated indoor swimming pool you can also relax in the home cinema room or get competitive in the games room with its pool table.

                          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.
