About Chris and Carol Heard
We moved down from Surrey in Dec 2013 looking for a location closer to the family farm in Hartland. Chris was born and brought up North Devon and as a result has a wealth of local knowledge which he happily passes on to any guest that needs direction. We love the peace and tranquillity at the Pines and live here happily with out friendly Boxer Daisy.
