INTRODUCTION

Stunning views, 6 large bedrooms, chic interiors, huge family kitchen, games room.

High Grange is a stunning, newly renovated period home that has remained in the same family since 1950.

Situated in East Devon, overlooking the Blackdown Hills & with views down to the sea beyond, it is a place of tranquility, peace and love, with four generations of happy memories and moments to share with visitors. Whether it's the photos on the walls, the antiques in every room, the decor, or the gardens it is not so much a holiday house, but a very happy family home and it's waiting for new families to come and add to those memories.

Upstairs is beautiful and has the unique factor of having two master bedrooms. There are a total of 6 large bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.

Mr and Mrs Martin recently stayed at High Grange and wanted to share this with you:
High Grange is a spacious beautifully restored country house set in extensive woodlands in the heart of the Devon countryside and on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty, The Blackdown Hills.
 
The property, whilst being extremely spacious, has a wonderfully comfortable feel about it, creating a real home from home atmosphere.
The reception rooms are extensive, the kitchen being the star attraction.  This features an enormous central island, an Aga and a full-size cooking range as well as a large American fridge.  This was the focal point for our family gatherings.
 
The bedrooms are individually themed, the beds very comfortable and the bathrooms luxurious, and very well designed. 
 
A lot of thought has gone into furnishings and accessories throughout the entire house, from the bed linen, towels and dressing gowns in the bedrooms to the massive range of kitchen equipment.  It lacked for nothing.
 
We stayed over Christmas and the triple glazing and insulation paid dividends – it was wonderfully warm and cosy. 

We would thoroughly recommend it!

COTTAGE LOCATION

MESSAGE FROM OUR GUESTS

But don’t take our word for it! Click on the Guest Book to see what our many and varied visitors have written in the Visitors Book on departure..

“High Grange is truly unique because of its position. It is less than three hours from London - two hours from the Midlands and Cotswolds - and is only 25 minutes from the M5 (Junction 25 - Taunton). It lies within easy reach of no less than 5 different beaches, all within 20 minutes drive. To the right are the beaches of Sidmouth and Branscombe - straight ahead you will find Seaton, with it's extraordinary Nature Reserve estuary, with hundreds of species of birds - and to the left are the beaches of Lyme Regis and Charmouth, just over the Dorset border. It is a stones thrown from the Jurassic Coast, and is wonderfully near all the inland attractions of Devon too. There is off road parking - it is perfect for family groups, and offers every convenience of a modern house with traditional period backdrops. The bedrooms are roomy and the decor within is elegant and chic, but does not take away from the period feel of the house. The views are breathtaking, and above all it feels safe and secure. Whether it's a smaller group or a huge houseful, High Grange is a truly a HOME - cosy, intimate, friendly, easy to use, fun and welcoming - guests will find it incredibly difficult to leave!”
