We are Lynne and Dave and have lived and brought up our children in this home for 18 years and we still love it. Our grown up son lives here too, with our daughter visiting periodically from Uni. When not working we enjoy socialising and entertaining, getting out in the fresh Devon air and the odd weekend trip away. Dave moved here 22 years ago from Oz and is a keen gym user and enjoys competing in natural bodybuilding competitions, so my job is to make sure our cupboards are stocked with healthy nutritious food and fine wine for me!
