About Claire Hills
Hi, My name is Claire and I am a working mum with two children. I am born and bred in Devon, and I have grown up in Paignton. I can provide you with any information you require on the local area, and I will leave you as much info in the house as possible on local attractions. I wish you a pleasant stay in our quiet and friendly residential neighbourhood.
Claire Hills purchased this House in 2007
Why Claire Hills chose Paignton
I am one of the true locals, I am a Devonian through and through and I bought this property as it has a lovely back garden, great for sitting in the sun and I have adapted it to be super child friendly. The rooms are big and spacious unlike some of the newer property's. My children go to the local primary school (where I once went) and my mother lives in the next street! Please note this property IS a family home and will contain a few items of clothing during the out of season periods. it is impossible to move everything for short rentals, although with 3 triple wardrobes there is plenty of space for your belongings too!
What makes this House unique
The quiet and friendly neighbourhood here will provide you will a peaceful and relaxing holiday. There is ample parking outside so you will never have to worry about your vehicle. We are conveniently located just off the main road into Paignton, a short drive away from the town centre. You will hear no road noise here, only seagulls!

Very strange felt uncomfortable in this house
I thought I would make a review as a first time doing a stay with home and away, I wouldn’t come back here many reasons
1) owner literally must have moved out moments before arrival with her children , the house is full of personal possessions , photos of her children , freezer full of her food , no room to unpack main bedroom wardrobe full of owners clothes and belongings , children’s rooms drawers full of clothes , pants , socks school bags in wardrobes with clothes !!!
Didn’t like this at all ,nor expect , states some personal effects pictures but not this VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.
2) AREA is awful , scared to park car outside for damage , loads kids everywhere screaming from early in morning to dusk and later , dogs running freely , neighbours working on motorbikes so noisy and filthy .
3) house is quite dirty
4) patio doors hanging off amd difficult to shut as well as windows
Sorry this was not for me or my family , children felt awful that they had taken someone’s home while they went in their motor home outside parked !
Hi! Lovely to talk to you at great length during your stay, when you didn't mention any of these issues? No I had not literally just moved out, I leave my house with pictures on the wall, food and equipment / kitchen / linen / toys for my guest to enjoy. There are currently 2 triple empty wardrobes in house and one whole chest of drawers in the master room. My home is not dirty. I have OCD!! and my house is immaculate at all times. My partner also personally cleaned on this changeover himself. The area is RESIDENTIAL yes, low and behold their will be children out playing as the area is a close nit community and safe. Ptio door is broken which is why it has DO NOT OPEN on it, there is a massive back door right next to it!!! patio door is being changed to a window soon as not required.I can not tell my very kind neighbour to not tinkle with his bike, it is a public road, and has every right to do so. Too scared to leave your car is a bit exaggerated, my motorhome, as you quite rightly say is parked in the cul de sac, because its safe! and no, I was not in it, I was up in Bristol with my children and partner, as you know because I spoke to you from Bristol. The Motorhome was parked outside, on a public road. No need for your children to feel awful, A) we were 100 miles away as I work in Bristol B) my children leave their things for others to enjoy. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. All the best.
Spotlessly clean and very comfortable
Our family of four had a great stay here. A real home from home feel, the perfect base for us whilst we were visiting family in Paignton. Quiet location and close to all local amenities. Everything we needed, would stay here again.
Clean, warm and homely
Great communications, very helpful. Clean, warm and homely. Comfy beds and a well equipped kitchen.
Clean, well equipped and easy to find
Although we didn't get to meet Claire, she was very helpful via the website and text. The house was clean and well presented. Although we only stayed one night, there was plenty of room for 5 of us.
Would highly recommend 😊
The house is just want you need with kids. A 3 bedroom house and is great in terms of being near everything. It has every thing you need for the week and all you have to do it go shopping to get what food you need. Sky tv and internet and one of the best beds i have ever slept in. Will book again next year and if your need some where that has all you need. This is it.
Fabulous fully equipped house!!
We had a great stay here as the house has all you need to feel at home - Sky TV, WiFi etc. Best of all was that my two dogs were made to feel as welcome as us humans!! The fully enclosed garden was lovely to have too. In a great location for getting around and seeing both South and North Devon. Claire, the owner, made us all feel very welcome and we'd definitely stay here again!!
