About Mr and Mrs C Robson

We are both Devon born and when we were growing up we used to visit Exmouth with our families for the summer holidays. We loved the countryside and sandy beaches and there were always plenty of interesting places to visit and things to do for all of the family.

Mr and Mrs C Robson purchased this house in 2012

Why Mr and Mrs C Robson chose Exmouth

We were delighted to have the opportunity to buy our holiday home in Exmouth in December last year and have taken pleasure in preparing it for holiday use for the first time in the summer of 2013. We hope that you will find it a lovely place to stay.

What makes this house unique

Our holiday home is well located for staying in central Devon, being close to many amenities, ranging from town to country to beach, dependent on where your own interests lie.

Lovely comfortable homely property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay of 5 nights and wished it was longer! It was like home from home at everything was provided to have a really enjoyable and comfortable stay. We do know the area and it was lovely to have local shops nearby and a lovely fish and chip shop.

We will definitely be back for longer next time as it makes a good base for exploring Devon and Cornwall.

Home from home but near to the sea!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at Avonlea. It didn't dissapoint, our stay was just as enjoyable as the first. The house enjoys a nice quiet location on the outskirts of Exmouth with its own off-road parking. The house was again spotless and very well equipped. The communication with Colin and Jo was excellent. The best recommendation that we can give is that we have already booked to return in October. Dave and Sandra.

Spacious, warm and very accommodating owners

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely time we had at the property, we were staying for work and it was a pleasant base to come home to after a long day; near shops, pub and eateries in a quiet cul-de-sac.

We were very impressed with the setup and had lots of fun on the pool table!

We had organised a mid-stay housekeeping due to staff switchover that was agreed at a very reasonable price so the owner is very accommodating.

Certainly hope to be returning same time next year.
