About Helen

I'm lively, hard working and love to have fun, happy dressing up or in a pair of muddy wellies! (I also love being in the local darts team)

I enjoy village life, spending time with my children, walking the dog and good food. River Cottage HQ is only a few minutes away and occasionally we treat ourselves to one of their delicious lunches. Yum.

(A little bit of fossil hunting creeps into my spare time too).

My mottos? We only live once, do unto others as we would like done to us, and endeavour to be kind, thoughtful and forgiving.

Helen purchased this cottage in 2015

Really nice place - lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

This property and location is amazing. Very good based to explore the coast and area. The owners are wonderful and the property is presented to the highest standard you could wish for. We stayed in Horseshoe Cottage. We understand from speaking to others the other two cottages are equally stunning. The small village is very quite and the views from the cottages and surrounding areas are simply stunning. We loved it!

Lovely well equipped cottage in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived I knew we would have a lovely weekend in this beautiful renovated cottage. There is everything you need and the location is great for exploring during the day. In the evening there is no need to drive as the village pub served good food, dog friendly and had a great atmosphere too.

I would definitely recommend this cottage. Thank you Helen.

Beautiful retreat in glorious setting

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage exceeded all expectations. Beautifully furnished with a well-equipped kitchen area and gorgeous outside garden area, we did not want to leave. Plus, there's a really useful adjacent communal laundry room with washer, dryer and a cupboard full of holiday essentials to borrow including picnic baskets.

With a handy shop, a truly fantastic, locally renowned farm store, two great local pubs and a plethora of fabulous walks starting right on your doorstep, the picturesque village surroundings really does have it all. What's more, you're only ever 15 minutes away from an incredible choice of beaches; Lyme Regis, Seaton and Beer, with glorious coastal walks to boot. Absolutely must return to this wonderful gem!
