The Whitehouse Overview

The Whitehouse is situated in Chillington, which is a small village that sits between Salcombe and Dartmouth; the perfect base for exploring both towns and their surrounding areas of outstanding natural beauty. Long stretches of stunning coastline stretch out on either side of the village. Lush countryside, towns and villages are within easy striking distance of the house.

The house is within easy reach of dozens of south Devon beaches. Sunbathe, surf, windsurf, paddle-board, swim, fish or simply walk the dog along this stretch of the coastal path.

The house simply beautiful inside and out. With so many different rooms for relaxing and entertaining, you won’t feel on top of one another. Instead the house will be the most wonderful base for a big family holiday or group of friends looking for something special.

The stylish interiors include a drawing room featuring comfy sofas, chairs to sink into, an open fire and two sets of French doors which open onto the garden. The additional family room is well stocked with games, more relaxing seating and another open fire. Close by is the bar will no doubt be a regular haunt for the cocktail makers of the group!

The well-equipped kitchen will be a focus for the foodies. With a relaxed dining table for kids suppers or many morning cups of tea, and lots of storage for food and drink.

Decadent evening meals or relaxed lunches can be enjoyed in the large dining room with log burner, and windows leading out to the sunny terraces and gardens with more space for al fresco dining.  If you would like a chef during your stay, please speak to Salcombe Finest for further details.

You will love exploring the beautiful sheltered garden and it’s secret hideaways. There are many quiet corners to read or laze about. For children there is a sunken trampoline, slide and romantic swing hanging from the vast tree on the main lawn. And for balmy summer evenings, there is a Weber charcoal BBQ to sizzle those sausages.

Our four legged friends are welcome at The Whitehouse. Dogs may roam the house, but are not allowed upstairs or on any furniture. Walking directly from the garden, explore Devon’s green lanes, coastal footpaths or the three local pubs within easy walking distance. Or explore the Chillington orchard with valley views and take the dog for a walk before breakfast.

The individually designed bedrooms are a mix of luxury and comfort, with a relaxed feel. The beds are huge (there is even a bed which is over 2 metres wide and long!) and the towels and REN bathroom products luxurious. All of the bedrooms are spacious, well equipped and include wall mounted smart TVs (Netflix, Amazon, BBC iPlayer etc), DVD player and good free wifi. The showers are like rainstorms and the baths are big enough for two.

Bedroom 1 is a gorgeous triple aspect super king room overlooking the garden and village. The ensuite, which opens up to the bedroom, contains a deep, square bathtub and overhead rainstorm shower.

Bedroom 2 (with kingsize bed) has a beautiful curved wall leading to the bathroom.

Bedroom 3 (with super king bed or can be made up as a twin) is an airy, peaceful room on the top floor of the house. It is more like a suite with a separate bedroom and living area. The bathroom features a large walk-in shower and a claw foot bath. With the entire floor to yourself staying up here is a real treat!

Bedroom 4 is one of the most romantic rooms with a hand made four poster super king bed and a beautiful double ended bath in the room. There is a separate ensuite bathroom with a walk in shower.

Bedroom 5 is a huge room boasting a vast Emperor sized bed, a beautiful chaise longue in front of the television and a bathroom that is bigger than most bedrooms! If you want indulgence this is where you will find it!
