Home House

Holiday Rental House -
8 Bedrooms , 6 Bathrooms , Sleeps 15
Combeinteignhead, Newton Abbot, Devon, England
A beautiful rambling thatched house in one of Devon's most delightful hidden villages, Home House is the picture of idyllic rural England. As you wind your way through the lanes, past flower filled hedgerows and through rolling fields to get to the village, you'll see plenty of thatched cottages and you'll pass an award winning traditional pub.
There is Home House, nestling in the valley and bordered by orchards, with a stream running through its spacious sunny garden (both an enclosed walled garden and a larger lawned area), down to its own indoor heated swimming pool. It's a large house – once one of the major farmhouses in the village – and it has been stylishly decorated and smartly furnished to give you the charm of the old with the comfort and chic elegance of the new.
