About Rose Curtis
My husband and I have 2 young children and also live on part of our 10 acre site.
Rose Curtis purchased this Bungalow in 2010
Why Rose Curtis chose Newton Abbot
We bought Stover Park Farm, with its 10 acres, in February 2010. As a farmer's daughter I wanted my children to also be able to enjoy the countryside and outdoor life, as much as I did when I was growing up. We're situated just 3 minutes from the A38 Devon Expressway and our location provides the perfect base to visit South Devon's beautiful beaches, the English Riviera and Dartmoor. Cornwall is only 45 minutes away over the Tamar Bridge.
What makes this Bungalow unique
In April 2012 we embarked on the conversion of the cedar clad building, next to our house, which we named "Magnolia Lodge" as it sits in the shadow of two beautiful Magnolia Trees. We wanted to create a space based on the "best bits" of our many family holiday experiences. The internal spec is contemporary and spacious and the interior décor comprises restful, neutral tones. The modern wood burner will add warmth and coziness during winter short breaks and the BBQ will be just what's needed for those great British summers! However, if you enjoy more adventurous cooking then our fantastic range cooker is just for you. But, if you don't want to slave over a hot stove then fear not Devon not only produces great food but cooks it too and there's plenty of great places to eat out.

lovely self contained home from home.
We stayed for 7nights with our dog. Our welcome was lovely with mince pies and cream. the accommodation is of a really high standard and very well thought out, with everything you need provided. We loved returning to the log burner and the cosy feel after a good day out. Our dog loved the field behind. We would love to stay again as it really does feel like home from home.
Wonderful stay at Magnolia Lodge

Thank you - we shall return.
Surpassed our expectations. The property really is as spacious as the photos appear - if not more so. Wonderfully appointed, there is nothing missing and a lovely touch was the cream tea on arrival. Hosts are on hand to welcome guests and assist with anything during the stay. We are definitely looking to book again. Thoroughly recommend.
A comfortable, relaxing location in South Devon
We were welcomed warmly with cream scones and helpful hints on local amenities. The lodge was spacious, comfortable and well equipped, including lots of games to keep the children entertained. Good safety features, including an ENPR-operated barrier. Stover Park is a walk away, and Newton Abbot has good facilities and restaurants. Would definitely go back.
Best place to stay in Devon
We had an amazing stay, we had a warm welcome and felt like it was a home away from home, everything was easy to access and Rose was really helpful and help us when we needed to find certain places, we will definitely be returning for another holiday, even our dog Gizmo loved it
