About Paul Fox
Hi folks, Welcome to our wonderful property Grey Gables. We live and work in Exmouth and this is our family home with a family feel. Our intention is for you to turn up on your holiday and feel like its home from home. Relax, kick back, run around the garden, bake on the beach, get out on the water and enjoy the town's food and beverage establishments. The house is only available over the summer as it is our family home the rest of the year. Enjoy. Paul & Talane.
Paul Fox purchased this House in 2005
Why Paul Fox chose Exmouth
This is a real family town, lots of activities around the beach and close to the Moors too. Grey Gables is in a super quiet cul de sac but only 1m to town centre and 1/4m to the beach Exmouth has ample shopping, a cinema, bowling alley, softplay centre, pedestrianized cafe area, great pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. There is even a floating cafe only accessible by water unless you are a really strong swimmer. There are festivals, fetes and all sorts of other entertainment constantly going on. The beach here is nearly two miles of golden sand and very shallow, so kid friendly. You can hire all sorts of sea going craft from kayaks to dinghy's, SUP and powerboats. Exeter airport is 20 mins away, Exmouth railway station links to Exeter and the M5 is only 15 mins from the
What makes this House unique
The house is fabulously situated. In a quiet cul de sac, but only 20 mins walk or just under a mile to the town centre. We are only a quarter mile form the beach which is visible from the house upper storey. The house has a big private garden and at the bottom of the lane (100M) there is a public footpath into countryside. Ideal for joggers or dog walkers who fancy a walk up onto the cliff paths. Exmouth is a world heritage site for its spectacular Jurassic Coastline and red cliffs.The South West coastal path passes through. We also have cycle path along the Exe Estuary that will take you along water side views, quaint villages, pub stops, view the Royal Marines Training Centre (!) and onward's all the way to Exeter.

Great Family Home
Everyone had a wonderful time at Grey Gables. It was great being able to relax in a very comfortable property. The children enjoyed the garden, especially the trampoline.
A fine house with excellent family accommodation
Slight disappointment to find how far we were from sea, town and shops. The stray cat was a nuisance and it was a pity the lawn was only cut just before we left. However the house is very well equipped and welcoming with all necessary amenities. It was kind of the owner to leave a number of things like wine, beer, cereal etc which were unexpected. We found it easy to feel at home and it was all we could have hoped for. Thank you to Paul for letting us stay
Thank you for your review. We have amended the online description to be more clear the property is a 15 minute walk to the beach and is situated in a cul de sac 1 mile from the town centre. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Beautiful welcoming home
This is a beautiful house, well equipped and ideally located. We stayed as a three generational family group of ten. There was plenty of space for us to be together or to spread out and find a quiet corner. The garden is lovely with enough seats, benches and loungers for everyone as well as swing, hammock and trampoline. The location is quiet but walkable to the beach, shops, etc. Perfect.
Thanks for a generous review. We are so glad you had a perfect holiday.

Lovely family holiday
We had a lovely holiday in this very spacious family house. It was perfect for our extended family & the garden was beautiful. The beach was only a 10 minute walk & town centre a bit further. The cul-de-sac the house was in was very quiet & peaceful. Overall everything was great & Paul & Neil very helpful.
Thank you. We are delighted the house worked so well to accommodate the family holiday with the mixture of peace and quiet and a short walk to the town / beach.
