This is a spacious, detached country house deep in the glorious east Devon countryside, yet easy to reach, offering absolute tranquility, fabulous gardens and unspoilt south-facing views across the valley. Shore Breach is a wonderful choice for an extended family holiday, with three comfortable and very spacious bedrooms accommodating eight guests. A large sitting-room has a wood-burning stove at its heart, there is a wonderful family kitchen/breakfast-room and a special garden-room for celebrations around the dining table. The gardens are an absolute delight with a tumbling stream running through the grounds and water lily filled ponds attracting a variety of birds and wildlife; perfect for switching off from the pressures of everyday life.

Shore Breach offers the best of both worlds – seclusion and peace yet an easy drive from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton or just over the border with Dorset – iconic Lyme Regis. Honiton – famed for its antiques shops – is nearby, rummaging there is irresistible. If you want to set off from the property on foot there are woodlands and footpaths to explore from the doorstep. This lovely family house is a rare find these days, traditional, welcoming, space for all the family. Children are very welcome here but need supervision because of the deep ponds and stream. Your dog is also welcome and it if loves water there is the very useful garage/boot-area to dry it off before it comes into the house!
