A word from our owner
White Horses has a history so rich and vibrant, it's impossible to put it all into words. If walls could talk then the ones here would certainly have a few stories to tell.
Generations of our family have holidayed at our beautiful riverside home and over the years we’ve almost become a permanent fixture in the village. There are so many of us, when we turn up we never know who else in the family we’re going to bump into.
When we’re here we don’t want to be anywhere else and when we’re anywhere else the only place we want to be is back in Bantham.
All the children love it here. particularly the large garden - Great for hide and seek, boules and building dens.
The hidden steps which lead down to a secret jetty where on an outgoing tide we can leap into the water and let the ‘Swoosh’ carry us down the estuary. Hours and hours of fun and memories that will last forever.
