Around The Property
“High Grange is truly unique because of its position. It is less than three hours from London – two hours from the Midlands and Cotswolds – and is only 25 minutes from the M5 (Junction 25 – Taunton). It lies within easy reach of no less than 5 different beaches, all within 20 minutes drive. To the right are the beaches of Sidmouth and Branscombe – straight ahead you will find Seaton, with it’s extraordinary Nature Reserve estuary, with hundreds of species of birds – and to the left are the beaches of Lyme Regis and Charmouth, just over the Dorset border. It is a stones thrown from the Jurassic Coast, and is wonderfully near all the inland attractions of Devon too. There is off road parking – it is perfect for family groups, and offers every convenience of a modern house with traditional period backdrops. The bedrooms are roomy and the decor within is elegant and chic, but does not take away from the period feel of the house. The views are breathtaking, and above all it feels safe and secure. Whether it’s a smaller group or a huge houseful, High Grange is a truly a HOME – cosy, intimate, friendly, easy to use, fun and welcoming – guests will find it incredibly difficult to leave!”
