About Elizabeth Wesson

We bought Spindleberry as a holiday home whilst living and working in London. Upon retirement we could think of nowhere better to live than Chulmleigh where we now live in a rather larger property just five minutes away so we are always on hand should you require any assistance.

Elizabeth Wesson purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Elizabeth Wesson chose Chulmleigh

We fell in love with Spindleberry at first sight and many of our guests appear to feel the same way, many returning year after year. Chulmleigh is a very friendly village with its own butcher, baker, post office, hairdresser, florist, convenience store, two pubs and two restaurants. We had some wonderful times here and when preparing the cottage for our guests’ arrival feel extremely jealous.

What makes this cottage unique

Oodles of character from the inglenooks in the dining and sitting rooms to the walled garden and extensive grounds beyond and its position within the friendly, self-sufficient village of Chulmleigh, with beautiful walks right on the doorstep and proximity to the sea and both Dartmoor and Exmoor. It certainly ticked all our boxes!
