About Viv and Tony Killeen
We currently live in Halberton, within half an hour of the cottage.
Viv and Tony Killeen purchased this cottage in 2006
Why Viv and Tony Killeen chose Bishops Nympton
We had often visited North Devon when our children were young. Eventually, we decided to buy a holiday home there. The Pottery was the first of many that we went to see - none of the others felt like a home from home. We bought it, then decided we would let others enjoy it too. We have been letting it for holidays since 2008.
What makes this cottage unique
Owning a piece of history brings responsibilities, which we take seriously. The roof was completely rebuilt in 2018, a job that was several years in the planning, with four solid months of work by Shaun, our master thatcher, and his brothers Derry, the joiner and Marcus, the builder. The roof is the shape it was when it was last completely replaced, probably over 100 years before. Parts of the old structure remain where they were, as required by the listed building consent, but the framework is up-to-the minute specification, and will be good for at least another century. The thatch was fitted to it by Shaun in exactly the same way as the very first was fitted, some 350 years earlier, and using tools those craftsmen of old would have recognised. More recently, we have replaced the bathroom suite, not an easy job in such a building, and updated the kitchen area. The result is a comfortable blend of the old and the new, still with the charm of the original (and low beams for the unwary!)
