Blossom bursts in the countryside

The nectarine is already blossoming in the greenhouse attracting the local bumble bees who love it - and thank goodness they do as it saves me climbing the ladder every morning to pollinate the tree with my trusty paintbrush.


The fruit will be ripe at the end of July so if you book the whole house for your summer holidays you will have the intense pleasure of sampling the sweet warm nectarines straight off the tree.

If you would like more information about our self catering accommodation, or to find out our summer house letting rates, please go to our agent Unique Home Stays website, phone Bethany on 01637 882012 or email her at

PLEASE NOTE: The house is called Romansleigh when you view it on the Unique Home Stays website.

Spring in Devon is divine

Come and see it for yourself!!


The buds are bursting, the chickens are laying, the snowdrops are almost over but we have daffodils galore and the bluebells and tulips won't be long. We already have chives to liven up our lunch and mint for the freshest mint tea.

Walking on the beach by the sea in the glorious sunshine has to be experienced to be believed and the wind doesn't blow over Exmoor quite so boisterously. Book a long weekend of three nights in spring and you'll get the third night at half price - why wait?

See you soon...
