About David and Mary Horne

My wife and I have recently retired. We live in a small village called Littlewick Green, near Maidenhead, in Berkshire. It is the archetypal English village, with a cricket pitch, a church and a pub. We have lived there for 23 years; prior to that, we lived in Ealing, in West London. We have two children, both in their twenties. We both enjoy walking, and exploring beautiful countryside.

David and Mary Horne purchased this barn in 2014

Why David and Mary Horne chose South Hams

I first discovered Bantham and Thurlestone during a golf trip to the South Hams some 20 years ago, and immediately fell in love with it. It is designated as an 'area of outstanding natural beauty', which means that there are extremely strict regulations regarding planning permission for development. Bantham village is part of a larger estate, which is privately owned by people who are determined to ensure that the beauty of the location is maintained.

When we retired, my wife and I decided that we would like to buy a holiday home in the area. We were particularly interested in converted barns, so were delighted when one came onto the market. We immediately fell in love with the Coach House, and the beautiful, secluded and peaceful valley in which it is situated, and have taken great pleasure in restoring the property since we bought it in June.

What makes this barn unique

We would like you to share in the pleasure we have enjoyed in visiting this beautiful area, together with the house and the beautiful valley it is situated in.

Amazing property in a fantastic location .........perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in the Coach House and loved every minute. The property is stunning, with modern and original features. It has everything you need and more. Open plan kitchen diner then a small step up to the living area with wood burner. Two spacious bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. A lot of character and hidden away. The location is perfect in a stunning part of Devon. We will return and recommend this to anyone.

Thank you!

Cute and Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked the cottage for a few days to take our Grandchildren away as it was half term, Amelia 2 said what a lovely holiday house.

The cottage is in a perfect location for beaches, walks and Woodlands theme park.

Hope to go back again as soon as we can. We will be recommending it to our family and friends.
