Meet the Host

A warm welcome.

I'm Julie, Tom's mum, and I am your first port of call for any of your needs during your holiday at Tom's House. I want to ensure you settle in well and I am available to help with any of your queries so that your stay is as enjoyable as possible.

Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any concerns.

My son Tom loves spending time with his family and he enjoys holidays and so, after much consultation with him, we couldn't think of a better way to support his care needs than by combining these two loves together.  In Easter 2014 we welcomed our first ever holidaying family to Summer Breeze House (Tom chose the name because he loves the summer), a four bedroomed south facing detached house, sleeping 8 in the beautiful coastal village of Croyde, North Devon.  Just a 2-5 minute walk to the centre of the village, and a 5-10 minute walk to the beach.  Tom's House is our newest development and is named after Tom, naturally.  This stunning holiday home also includes Cosy Cott - an additional annex. You could say it's all in the name!

Tom and I trust you have a wonderful holiday ...

About Tom

Tom's House is named after Julie's son Tom who has severe disabilities. After the usual running costs every penny generated from letting Toms House goes towards Tom's care and future. Tom has helped with every decision on how we run Tom's House, and Cosy Cott. Namely the theming of the rooms and accessories.

We loved our stay at Tom's House. We stayed with extended family including my father-in-law who is in a wheelchair. The access was really good for him with everything wide enough and rooms big enough and the lift was a real bonus. He felt much more independent the week we were there than he has in a long while. We really liked the upside-down design of the house which means that you get fantastic views across the fields and the brilliant idea of putting a lovely deck up there, which you can access from the kitchen and sitting room. I had my morning coffee out there and it felt so peaceful and beautiful. The house is really well designed and feels very homely. We are really into cooking and the kitchen is just full of all the things you need, so it just felt like home.  It wasn't warm enough for a barbecue the week we stayed but the garden looks really well equipped with all the right furniture and stuff for a good evening outdoors. My daughter and her boyfriend stayed in the annexe section which they loved, as it was like having their own cottage for the week.Thank you so much for having us, we had a brilliant stay and we'll definitely be back.
