About Steve Epps
We are a local family with 4 boys, and the property was a much loved family home for 5 years. Our other business is architectural design and art work, and we hope that this has enabled us to create a fun and attractive holiday environment at the house.
Steve Epps purchased this House in 2011
Why Steve Epps chose Stokeinteignhead
The property offers a fantastic combination of well appointed indoor and outdoor space. It provides a luxury environment which is however pared back so that people can feel relaxed. It is ideally suited to large groups of family or friends, and is in a peaceful yet accessible location, with plenty to do both at the property and in the surrounding area, and is very close to local beaches, and to amenities such as the pretty estuary village of Shaldon with its renowned pubs and restaurants. It has great leisure facilities including indoor pool from June 2019, cinema room, 7 person hot tub, mini football pitch, table tennis, basketball and large barbecue terraces with outdoor dining table, large barbecue and prep table.

40th birthday celebrations
Stephen is an excellent host and very responsive with any questions that you may have (I asked lots, sorry Stephen) and the house was perfect for the 40th birthday celebrations.
There was even a little surprise for when we arrived - the brownies were a major hit, so much so a few have asked for the recipe.
I can’t recommend this property enough.
40th birthday girls get together!
15 of us stayed in this beautiful house for 3 nights. We all had the most perfect stay and couldn't ask for a better place! Everything you need is available, and the pool and hot tub finish it off. Steve is close by if needed which is reassuring incase you need anything. We will be using this place again and have highly recommended it to friends and family.
We have just had an amazing stay here for my mum's 60th birthday. Steve was so helpful, from answering questions about equipment that was available for babies to recommending a chef to come and cater for us on the Saturday evening. The house is well equipped, spacious and incredibly comfortable. It really didn't feel like there were that many people there. The views are fabulous, the hot tub and pool mean there is plenty to do. Highly recommended!
We loved everything about the property, as a large family, there is always something to do, swimming, playing football, table tennis, basket ball, hot tub, relaxing by watching a film or all talking a cooking in the very spacious kitchen
Perfect family getaway location
We have just returned from a long weekend away at The Old Nursery. There were 11 of us in all + 1 dog. There was so much room and plenty for us to do. The house was ideal for my Dad who is not very well and has limited mobility. There is wheelchair access via the kitchen and there are 3 bedrooms on the same floor as the kitchen so access was not a problem.
The pool and hot tub were amazing and we made full use of them throughout our stay. Steve was very helpful and easy to contact before and during our stay. Our little french bulldog loved the house and the garden as there were so many places for her to explore. Lots of lovely memories made and fun had by everyone. Thank you x
This property is everything you could want and more! The owners have considered every tiny detail to ensure your holiday is perfect. Steve, the owner, checked in regularly to make sure we were ok and often asked if we needed anything - even going as far as to chop a lot of firewood for us!
Pool was beautiful and clean
Hot tub an absolute hit with all guests
Cinema room was incredible and the sound system was awesome!
We were all gutted to leave and will be back one day for certain.
Thank you Steve and family!!
The house is located on a south facing hillside with beautiful rural views just outside the village of Stokeinteignhead, and close to the beaches of Maidencombe, Teignmouth, and Shaldon. The location is peaceful yet convenient and accessible to restaurants, pubs, supermarkets nearby including Waitrose, and is near to the pretty estuary village of Shaldon. It is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Stokeinteignhead with its pretty thatched village pub.
