The Horse House is set back from a quiet country lane that is easily accessible from a larger road that runs between Axminster in Devon and Chard in Somerset which means that even in the most horrible weather, you can still get to it.

It is in a rural setting but is only 7-8 minutes from local shops including butcher and baker (you'll even find small independent craft shops with locally make candlesticks!), banks, post office, supermarkets, great coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.

The property is surrounded by working farms (including an alpaca farm just up the road) so you'll see sheep and cows dotted over the landscape in front of you.

As you come down Broom Lane towards the Horse House, you pass a few houses along the way but you will get incredible 'dark skies' on a clear night as there is little to no light pollution here.

I grew up on a farm on the opposite side of the valley from here and couldn't believe how, after many years working in London, I could be as lucky as I have been to find my new home right back in the heart of a place I love. I live here with Limo the dachshund and spend far too much of my time gazing out at the incredible view when I should be getting on with other things! I'm always happy to introduce new people to the many delights of the area from coast to countryside and from pubs and restaurants, vintage and farm shops and everything in between. I'm happy for you to contact me throughout your stay and am usually nearby if you have any questions or problems. If you prefer complete privacy, I'm equally happy to leave you to it.

During your stay
Although I live in the main house, The Horse House is completely separate from mine so you'll have complete privacy.

If you need anything, or want suggestions about what to visit, where to eat, how to find the best local produce, or great dog walks, please have a look at my guidebook, Devon Details or feel free to give me a ring, send a text or email and I'll try and help. I'm usually here to chat with in person too.
