Hummingbird House Overview

Welcoming 11 guests and two dogs, this stunning holiday home is nestled in the supremely photogenic village of Holbeton. This idyllic hamlet is surrounded by lush greenery, rolling hills, and astonishingly beautiful coastline, creating a postcard-perfect setting. Holbeton is a designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Heritage coast and Site of Special Scientific Interest and is alive with wonderful wild flowers, birds and animals. Holbeton's allure lies in its remoteness, it's proximity to some of the most breathtakingly beautiful stretches of coast make it one of the best kept secrets amongst families that holiday there.

Hummingbird House has five beautiful bedrooms to choose from. Each is beautifully appointed with classic and elegant furnishings. All the beds have gorgeous luxury bedding and deeply comfortable mattresses. The master bedroom has a lovely en suite with his and hers sinks and all the bathrooms have extra fluffy towels, luxury toiletries, gorgeously hot power showers, and bathtubs for those blissful soaks. Due to it's idyllic location there is zero light or noise pollution, so a sumptuous slumber is a given. Wake to the salty sea breeze and the smell of freshly brewed coffee, and wander down to make breakfast in the simply beautiful kitchen, full of natural light and of course fully equipped with absolutely everything you could need - a chef's dream!

Step into the massive sun trap garden and let children and dogs run and play till their hearts content! With masses of space and lots to explore, this is an ideal homestay for multi-generational families and a fabulous spot for celebrations. On balmy evenings light up the fire pit and pour yourself a drink. Soothe tired legs after a long day spent walking, swimming and boating with a long soak in the wood-fired hot tub, then wrap up in a fluffy bathrobe provided for all guests. Two dogs are very welcome at Hummingbird house. Dogs will love napping by the wood burning stove in the sitting room or snoozing by the AGA in the kitchen after a long day walking the coastal path and wave jumping on the beach. There is ample private parking for 5 + cars making it hassle free and easy for everyone to come and go whenever they please.

Hummingbird House is heaven for children. A high chair and travel cot can be set up if you have little ones in tow, as well as stair gates at both the top and bottom of the stairs if you're bringing along toddling babes. After spending days crabbing, rockpooling, kayaking or bodyboarding, children will simply adore chilling out in the games room filled with goodies such a table football and even a piano!

Stroll to the lovely local pub (that specialises in local devon ales and ciders) or hop to the beach and try out windsurfing, kitesurfing, bodyboarding and paddle boarding. Ideally located to explore the other gems in South Devon, whether it's pottering in the independent shops of Salcombe, discovering the vibrant town of Kingsbridge or exploring natural beauty spots such as Hope Cove, Thurlestone or South Milton. Stay at Hummingbird House and exploring this stunning area is an easy feat!

Absolutely lovely house and area to stay with all our family to celebrate a big birthday, host couldn’t have been any more helpful.The house had everything we needed to make our stay feel very special, hot tub was a big hit and the log burner made it feel so special.

Absolutely fantastic stay! The house looks even better than the photos, and was beautifully decorated and perfectly clean. The hot tub was a brilliant amenity. The location is extremely peaceful and remote which was perfect for our weekend break, and there's a lovely walk to the beach for a sea swim! The hosts were fantastic at communicating and answering all my questions before check in, and everything went very smoothly. Thank you!

What an amazing house! We went with 3 couples & 4 children & had everything to keep them amused day & night. We loved the big social kitchen to all eat together & enjoy a drink whilst being in the company of whoever was cooking. The utility room was well equipped. We loved the two huge living rooms across the hallway from each other - the children commandeered the TV room & we had the wood burner for playing board games. The bedroom combo was excellent for us, spacious enough for all 4 to sleep in together one night. Being walkable to the SW coast path was great & we ended up at Mothecombe Beach - for a cold water dip, & skim boarding.
