Since 2013

We would really like to tell you we were the most savey and astute of the 41 applicants who pitched for Cider House….. we weren’t! We just knew it was meant to be ours! 

We had never redecorated a room let alone renovated an entire house!

2013

A home that loves to be lived in...

An 18 month project that through necessity took 8, a baby who arrived 3 days after the builders, 5 bathrooms installed and not one wall, floor or ceiling left unloved. 

Initially a phenomenal award winning B&B now an idyllic spacious self catered retreat. 

Simply perfect for special celebrations, multigenerational family stays, on the fringes of Dartmoor and close to the coast, steeped in history with award winning gardens – we look forward to welcoming you.

Starbed Hideaways

Bespoke, lovingly crafted, carefully positioned, purposefully secluded, because sometimes in life you need to carve out a moment, or ten, to simply be, to immerse yourself in nature. To remind yourself that life is right here and right now. To slow down and take time just for you away from everything else….

Fika

We searched for 4 years and as before, we just knew… Cornwall’s forgotten corner.

To slow down and take time for the things in life which matter.

Fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean, take your coffee in the sun rise and sea breeze. Slip into the hottub under the stars, dive into the ocean, make time for each other… breathe, smile, be.
