Hi. Thank you for taking an interest in Autumn Rose.
My name is Abigail Gibbs. I am twenty years old and I am currently a finalist reading English Language and Literature at Oxford University. I spend some of my vacations writing here, its where I can enjoy the peace and quiet and solitude required to pen that next chapter. My first book The Dark Heroine was published in 2012 by Harper Collins after being spotted on an internet writing site, where I already had a fan base emerging. When time permitted between studies, I completed my second book in the series, aptly named 'Autumn Rose'. which was launched in January 2014. I hope to continue my writing career following my graduation later this year.
Year property purchased: 2013
Sea Whisper has been used by my extended family for some 10 years. Cousins, Aunts and Uncles would always love to come and stay here in Brixham. Torquay was voted by the public as the best UK resort on the website Trip Advisor, therefore it is not surprising the bungalow was always a popular destination. It is well equipped for self catering and has a secure garden ideal for young children.
I am very fortunate to have been brought up here in Brixham with my two brothers, we always enjoyed sailing off the breakwater and rowing on the river at Dartmouth.
My personal recommendations for places to visit would be Paignton Zoo Dartmoor with of course a devon cream tea
Babbacombe model village and I especially enjoyed crabbing at Stoke Gabriel. I hope you too can enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer.
Had a brilliant stay in this lovely bungalow. Very well equipped, clean and homely. Near enough to all the local attractions. Hope to be back next year.

Lovely clean bungalow which was just perfect for a short break to explore the surrounding area. Super secure garden for our dog and everything we needed. We had a great day travelling by bus and steam train and walking the coastal path. We booked the bungalow at really short notice and what a good choice.
Sea Whisper is a beautiful bungalow in a very quiet position. Lovely views from the garden, unfortunately too cold to sit out! Very clean and well equipped, everything we needed. A lovely area to explore.
The bungalow is well equiped, very clean, enclosed garden with sea views and convenient to all tourist attractions
The property was very clean and in a lovely position for views over Torbay. It was immaculate inside with all domestic items and equipment needed for a stay there. We had a small problem with the shower head holder but when we telephoned the owner this was rectified immediately. There is a bus stop nearby. Loved our visit to NT Greenway House and Coleton Fishacre, as well as the steam train and ferry ride to Dartmouth. Simply Fish in Brixham serves very good fish and chips. would definitely recommend the bungalow to friends.
In a quiet area of town with great views. We really enjoyed our stay here and made the most of the lovely enclosed back garden, getting some extra sun after a hard days sight seeing! We visited Greenway, Agatha Christie's holiday home which we really enjoyed seeing. An interesting house and beautiful gardens.
We were able to really relax and enjoy our stay and I would thoroughly recommend Sea Whisper.
