About Holywell Bay B & B
Thanks! You will receive an email as soon as the property has answered your question.
Jane and Gareth have lived in the Cubert area for nearly 35 years and “wouldn’t want to live anywhere else”. We moved from Cubert to Holywell in 1999 in search of a larger family home and ended up quite chance buying the bungalow next door which we named Ragheeb, after the farm we lived on for 5 years in Saudi-Arabia. Five years ago we managed to get planning permission to build a new house in the garden of Ragheeb and just 18 months ago we finally moved in to Inshallah, which you have seen in the photographs. After over 30 years as a passionate and dedicated midwife, Jane has decided it is time for a new challenge and direction. So with the combination of a close -to-beach location, a wonderful new home and a genuine desire to meet people, Holywell Bay B and B was born. Do come and enjoy it with us. In our spare time we both enjoy running, cycling and walking together. Jane’s particular passions are two Labradors (Lola and Hector) while Gareth spends a fair amount of time on the tennis court. We count ourselves very fortunate that we can pursue all of these pastimes and hobbies literally on our doorstep.
