Situated between the coastal towns of Dawlish and Teignmouth, Holcombe is a highly regarded village with an active community; facilities include a village hall, church and two public houses. A regular bus service runs nearby and there are mainline railway stations at Dawlish and Teignmouth. There are a wide range of recreational facilities in the area with water sports on the Teign and Exe Estuaries and golf courses at Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren. The property offers easy access to Teignmouth which can also be reached with a scenic walk along the sea wall which is part of the coastal path that runs between the two towns and passes near the property.
The Village is approximately 15 miles from the Cathedral city of Exeter with its regional airport and M5 motorway junction. It can be reached by regular bus and rail services from Dawlish and Teignmouth.
Yaffords was orginally called Derncleugh House and was built in the mid-1800s with four other “Gentleman’s Villas” by wealthy Victorian industrialists for their summer retreats, once the railway had reached the South West. It afforded these grand houses on this small headland privacy and they all benefitted from south facing views of the sea.
A recent report in a Dawlish Post article reported that Gabrielle Ray; a prominent celebrity during the Edwardian Era had stayed in the house on numerous occassions and apparently scrawled her signature across the living room wall. Our vendors whilst redecorating in their earlier days at Yaffords remember seeing a marking on the wall, but during the sequence of time they cannot swear that it was Gabrielle’s.


The original villa was divided in half during the 1950’s to provide two large family homes with private gardens and is not your typical semi-detached property.
Many of the rooms still retain the Victorian influence with high ceilings and ornate cornicing, dado rails and various Victorian features which have been uncovered and painstakingly retained. Our Vendors have upgraded the electrics and recently replaced the gas boiler for central heating and domestic hot water.
The other selling features of this home are the gardens of approximately ¾ acre and a stunning terrace where the sea veiws can be enjoyed. The orginal Orangery is no longer complete but has been transformed with the tiled flooring and pergola and has been used to create an alfresco eating area The gardens are styled to different areas including a front garden designed for ease of maintenance whilst the rear gardens offer tranquillity and at sundown there are numerous areas and terraces to enjoy the aspect. Whilst they are established, the rear gardens are well screened by mature trees allowing for either sun or shade and set on various terraces which overlook the sea; the gardens truly offer open space for both relaxing and entertaining.
The garden meanders down through a “private” gated access onto the cliff and leading onto a lane and Holcombe Beach, in turn offering a beautiful walk to Teignmouth parallel along the sea wall.
