Efford House

Efford house is a great favourite with families who like to take their holidays together or invite friends as it sleeps 12. Older children love to run down the sloping garden on to the Estate drives and to have their first taste of independence walking along them unsupervised to Pamflete beach or walking to Holbeton for Sunday croissants and newspapers. Everyone can appreciate the absolute silence, save for the sound of the seabirds following the ebb and flow of the tides.

loads of stuff: sailing, rowing, body boarding, surfing, swimming, canoeing, walking, beach cricket,
paddling,drawing, painting,crabbing,barbecuing , frisbee, making sandcastles, night walking, hide
& seek, scrabble, monopoly, racing demon…..”

“This is such a great house for families: 8 adults, 4 children and dog. So comfy and homely, but
heaps of room. Breakfast looking across the river, lunch at the ship Noss Mayo, barbecue supper
watching the tide come in.”
Dan & Family

“A glorious place—— we love the house and thank you for the little touches on arrival. A tray of tea
and biscuits, flowers, a full log basket and fires already laid. After hours in the car it was so
welcoming. “
