If you love to fish, then Hepburn House is the place for you! Nestled alongside the River Avon you can fish 'til your hearts content as it comes with it's own fishing rights. Salmon and trout are in abundance!


The wide sandy beach of Wonwell is a 20 minute drive as is Bigbury on Sea which offers plenty of opportunities for safe fun particularly if you’ve got children in tow. It is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of creepy-crawly entertainment for budding marine biologists and there’s a wide and varied selection of water sports available If you want to try something different from the usual body boarding or surfing then windsurfing and kite-surfing have hire facilities located on the beach.


Modbury, Kingsbridge, Totnes, Salcombe and Dartmouth are all within easy driving distance, along with many excellent pubs and restaurants. The Oyster Shack, voted one of the best restaurants in Devon is a 20 minute drive away.

You can do as much or as little as you want. Hepburn House is a magical, much loved, blood pressure reducing, relaxing haven.

Further Details:

Hepburn House is an environmentally friendly, carbon neutral eco house with under floor heating. There are no near neighbours; no light pollution to spoil the vast starry sky and no real reason to leave! But if the coast beckons, it’s only a 20 minute drive to either the fabulous surfing beach of Banthan or the wide sandy beach of Bigbury on Sea. The ever popular Wonwell Beach is also a 20 minute drive and boasts an unspoilt, uncrowded haven for holiday makers. It’s great for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and just relaxing! Pennywell Farm Activity Centre, Woodlands Family Theme Park and The Aquarium, Plymouth are all within a 45 minute drive.
