About Tom and Roz Tipper

We live in a small village in Buckinghamshire with our two young children having moved out from London in 2010.

We offer a warm welcome to all of our guests and hope you enjoy spending time at the house and in the beautiful South Hams.

Tom and Roz Tipper purchased this barn in 2014

Why Tom and Roz Tipper chose Kingsbridge

We bought The Grain Store just before Christmas in 2014 as a place to spend some quality family time and share with guests, friends and family all the benefits that Stancombe and the South Hams bring.

The facilities on the Stancombe estate mean it has something to offer all year round and its location means you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside on the estate but be only a short drive from the water, beaches and nearby towns.

Great accommodation in a quiet place. Lovely facilitie.... the pool was a hit!

  • 4 of 5

The property was bigger than expected... which was a plus. Clean, with great facilities and everything needed for a self catering break / holiday. We used the pool every day, again very clean and well looked after. The grounds were well kept. A good location to tour some of South Devon, easy drive to Torcross, Dartmouth and Salcombe. Lovely places to eat including The Globe Inn at Frogmore and The Crab Shell Inn at Kingsbridge.

It's important to feel at home when on holiday and the Grain Store at Stancombe Manor did just that. We had an excellent stay, and anyone wanting to visit South Devon should seriously consider staying here. Many thanks.

The Grain Store, nr. Sherford, South Devon

  • 5 of 5

First class barn conversion, with natural timber features and quality accessories. Extremely clean and absolutely everything provided. The owner was extremely helpful in accommodating our family for a very special Wedding Anniversary celebration. We have no hesitation in recommending this property and the children in our party absolutely loved the on-site facilities, especially the swimming pool.
