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.
