We must thank our host Richard and Jane for everything to make our stay such a wonderful experience! Smooth communication before we arrive. Detailed precise driving direction. Introduction about the area and the house. Comfirtable beds and warm shower. Nice continental breakfast. And more importantly a hearty laugh shared at the table before we start for another day.

Lovely house in a beautiful little hamlet in the country a short drive from Tavistock. We cut our visit short to stay in Exeter, but enjoyed walking in the fields. Great access to Dartmoor and Plymouth but not too much close by.

Response from Richard & Dee:
Thank you for you kind comments about East Quither. Your comment about local activities and facilities has inspired us to add to the Guide Book! There are over a dozen restaurants / gastro pubs within 15 minutes of the house - and many more beyond. Additional we have two nearby cinemas and several live music venues. This week there is a concert every night of the week. Additionally the historic town of Launceston is only 20 minutes with at least as many additional facilities. The key point is that East Quither is not just beautiful but has kept us busy for fifteen years! We still haven't been to all the pubs / restaurants !

Dee & I live in Devon because it has everything we love. Truly amazing countryside, the World Heritage status town of Tavistock close by with its wonderful architecture, indoor Pannier Market, interesting history and happy buzz.

Tavistock has a small theatre/cinema, live music, 2 swimming pools, a great selection of pubs and eateries as well as a good selection of Independent shops.

Wild Dartmoor is on our doorstep with many guided walks and interesting places to visit, the sea and surf less than an hours drive away and so many opportunities for walking, birding, kyacking, sailing, horse riding close by etc.

The city of Plymouth is just 2O miles away and north Cornwall just 15 minutes drive. Then there is peace here at Quither - green hills, rolling countryside, our own woodland, a view to the moor, no cars pass our door except the postman (and our visitors of course), a garden terrace to eat breakfast in the sunshine or choose to get cosy in our medieval drawing room. The house oozes character and charm with its log burners and mullioned windows. One of the Bishops of Belfast was born here and the house has links to the nearby Buckland Abbey.

My partner Dee and I have been hosting and using Airbnb for the past 2 years, we have enjoyed meeting people from many different countries and have found it a rewarding experience. Airbnb suites our style of travel, we like to be a part of where we stay.

We have some maps of the area and ideas for interesting trips out and about and hope to meet you here one day.
Kind Regards
Richard and Dee
