About Antonia Makeig-Jones
I'm the proud and passionate owner of Western House, my beautiful Georgian Residence. Born in Devon food is important to me and nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing delicious local, seasonal produce being served. I like to encourage Western House guests to use the local butcher and green grocers, shop local and enjoy what we have to offer in this wonderful part of the country. Antonia Makeig-Jones

Why Antonia Makeig-Jones chose Newton Abbot
Western House stands in its own grounds giving privacy yet its location enables guests to enjoy all South Devon has to offer as well as the wonders of Dartmoor and the Cathedral Cities of Exeter and Plymouth.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Western House offers a mixture of Georgian House grandeur with a real "home from home" feel. The house is my pride and joy and I love sharing it with guests so they too can enjoy its beauty and wonder. It's a real "party" house ideal for family gatherings, special occasions or simply just getting away from it all. Guests love the heated indoor pool, a real bonus. 5 of the super king sized beds can to made up as singles, thus allowing hen parties etc their own beds.

A birthday House Party
If anything, the website undersells a wonderful, well-equipped house and a stunning garden. A comfortable, elegant house that was perfect for adults and children.
Ramblers rest and recreation
The accommodation was amazing. Well equipped, spacious, excellent décor and some quirky features too. The grounds were beautiful and extensive - almost persuading us not to go out walking. Situated in a great area to explore the countryside. Antonia was welcoming and most helpful. An excellent stay - and we'd return again !
Father's 70th Birthday Weekend
We had a lovely stay at the Georgian House in Newton Abbot, the facilities were fantastic and the whole of the weekend was enhanced and made special with the indoor heated pool which all the guests enjoyed throughout our stay. The only negative aspect of our stay was access to the property being down a single track.
It was for my special birthday and all the family were together we all had a Fab time, Thank you.
Wonderful location for a family gathering - thoroughly recommended. Very well equipped in a delightful setting.
