About Amanda Robertson
We are the family Robertson's, we live and work in London, however found our dream escape in Lee!
Amanda Robertson purchased this House in 2008
Why Amanda Robertson chose Lee
We came across Lee Bay through friends who invited us to stay. We fell in love with the area straight away, it was such a hidden gem! A couple of years later I came across The Old Vicarage Lee in the Sunday Times for sale, from that point my husband and I went through a lot of what ifs! When we were invited down again to visit our friends in Lee a couple of months after, we decide to view The Old Vicarage, the house won us over totally, it had such a wonderful aura about it. that was the day we became determined to change our dreams into reality...
What makes this House unique
The house is far more than just a rental to us, we consider The Old Vicarage our home. The house is full with all those home comforts that make a stay more welcoming. The combination of a house with warmth, atmosphere, a breath taking sunny aspect, situated above the most delightful little church, in a pretty village with a fantastic local pub, all a short stroll from some of the most stunning and dramatic coast line in the uk, makes it a unique place to visit..

The property is in a great location and is of a large spacious size perfect for larger groups
The house is situated in a small village with a lovely pub and a dramatic beach just a few minutes stroll down the road. The larger towns of Ilfracombe and Woolacombe are just short drives away too where there are loads for most age ranges. The house is well equipped and large so there’s plenty of space if a few families are staying. Lovely kitchen where you can all get around the table for meals then 2 sitting rooms if the kids and adults want to separate. For very young children there are a couple of features that you just need to be mindful of which is the steep garden (typical of the location) and the bannister where the spindles are a little wider than regulations today but a stair gate was provided to stop the very young from venturing unsupervised. Our kids were 2,3 and 4 and didn’t have an issue. Overall a brilliant stay in a lovely house surrounded by beautiful gardens and scenery with loads to do either a short walk or drive away.
The house is very well-appointed, spacious, clean and comfortable. The large kitchen table is great for meals and getting everyone together - we accommodated 15 plus a toddler with no problem. We all commented that it didn't feel like a holiday rental - it felt like a home, and we made it so for our three day visit.
The ping pong table got some good use, and the afternoon sun in the living room made it a great place to relax (and the couches are super comfy). Easy access to the coast path and Lee beach were great for walks.
Highly recommend staying here!
Warm and comfortable stay for all ages
Beautiful house for a long weekend celebrating our mother’s 70th birthday. Fantastic for all ages and lots to do inside the house wheather you want to relax or there is use of computer, console etc so happy teens! Fantastic bedrooms and the kitchen itself was very well equipped. Would definitely visit again.
Lovely property in a beautiful surroundings.
100% recommend it.
a great family holiday
We've been to Lee before and love the village but this was our first visit to The Old Vicarage. We found the house charming and very comfortable. There is lots of room for a large party. We enjoyed badminton on the lawn, watching DVDs from the extensive library and playing games on the kitchen table. We also spent a few sociable hours at the Grampus. I would recommend this house to anyone in need of rest and recuperation in a peaceful location.
A wonderful hide away in a great part of the coast
We went away with 7 adults and 6 children and the most wonderful time
The Old Vicarage is ideally placed within lee village itself and for the numerous activities and sites of the north Devon area. Lee itself is a very quiet village, quite unspoilt and authentically English. It hosts only the small church of Lee with its local arts gift shop and The Grampus pub, with a lovely garden and delicious food! Lee Bay, is a pleasant stroll from the house, a kids haven, with a wealth of rock pools, caves, coves and secret passages to explore. For a more traditional beach, with miles of flat sand and dunes, there is near by Woolacombe or Croyde, offering some of the best surfing for professionals and amateurs on the Devon coast. The area is perfect for walking, with a host of stunning coastal walks on your doorstep and Exmoor near by. Ilfracombe, which is the nearest town, a 10 minute drive, offers the famous Victorian tunnel beaches, aquarium, harbour and trips to the National Trust Lundy Island to see puffins and seals. The artist Damian Hurst also has a restaurant here and of course his Verity statue stands proud on ilfracombe key. OTHER ACTIVITIES: We have an extensive list of activities for all ages at the house, to include museums, gardens, water and dinosaur parks, bowling, cinemas, cycling trails, swimming with sea lions, golf, Clay pigeon shooting, archery, abseiling, coasteering, gorge scrambling, horse riding and many more of which can be found in the near by area. GOLF: You are spoilt for choice in North Devon with clubs like Royal North Devon, Saunton and Ilfracombe all being near by. Royal North Devon is the oldest course in England but also seems to be the one of the friendliest.If you have never played here before it maybe worth hiring a caddie! Saunton, another links course, boasts the East and West coarses of which Nick Faldo said 'I cannot think of anywhere in England where 36 holes could be more enjoyable'. Ilfracombe, which is 3 miles away is a very relaxed privately owned beautiful cliff top course, with spectacular views along the magnificent North Devon coastline. This is a great course for teenagers to take on Mum's or Dad's as it may not be the longest course but the undulations and the prevailing South Westerlies will challenge golfers of all standards. For youngsters there is a driving range and a par 3 pitch and putt course approx. 2 miles away.
