About Richard Withey

We are Richard and Moira Withey and we came to Ranscombe House, Brixham in 1988 for a career change. We started off as a hotel and restaurant and gradually changed to a B&B and now we have converted to a self catering house for largish groups of friends and families.

As can be seen the house is in a quiet area is set up for family groups.

Richard Withey purchased this house in 1988

Why Richard Withey chose Brixham

We love the proximity to the town, harbour and marina. When you see Ranscombe House you will immediately know why we bought the place. As well as the house, Brixham is a wonderful place to spend a holiday. Most of the life of the town is a short walk away.

What makes this house unique

Some of the unique benefits of staying at Ranscombe House are the ample parking and spacious relaxing garden. Having had several great family gatherings we have found that the spaciousness enables people to have room to relax and yet stay in the company of their friends.

Brixham has a large number of good cafes, pubs and restaurants just a stroll away. You can also have chinese food, indian food and pizzas delivered to the door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Reviewed April 3, 2014

Every year a gang of us go away for a long weekend. Ranscombe House more than suited our needs for 13 adults and 3 children! Great location, 5 minute walk to Brixham harbour and the house was large enough for us all! No TV in the main lounge/dining area but this meant we all had to sit and talk with each other and play cards! There is a large TV in the lower deck lounge.

Would definitely recommend.



Reviewed April 8, 2013

Ranscombe House was a superb venue for our family gathering one weekend in March - a group of 20 with an age range of 1 to 87 years. Most bedrooms have sea views, all have en suites and the harbour is situated just a short stroll away. The communal rooms were spacious, comfortable and offered various relaxing areas for our number. The only down side was the weather, it was cold and misty spoiling the sea views and preventing us using the garden and verandah. However, everybody had a great time thanks to this very welcoming home.

Crabbing

Just buy a net and bucket from any of the local shops, add some bacon (crabs love bacon – really!) and drop over the harbour side. In no time you’ll have a bucket full of crabs. Best time of day for catching crabs is mid afternoon to early evening when the tide is in.

Of course you release them after you have caught them.
