We have just returned from a wonderful week long holiday at Orchard House and have nothing but praise for both the comfortable house and it's wonderful location. The views from the windows are perfect, looking out on wonderful countryside and we loved the secluded orchard and gardens.
Although our weather was mixed, there was plenty to do: superb walks from the house and nearby beaches to visit. South Devon is gorgeous with lovely villages but this area seems far less 'hectic' than other parts which is great.
If you do decide to visit - highly recommended - I would suggest you read up about the rich history of Hallsand's lost village and in particular the amazing story of the 'Sister's Against the Sea', featured in a book written by their family whilst living at Orchard House, very inspirational and certainly helps the surroundings to come alive. mehr
