Our Property Experts in Devon

Oliver McCarron

North Devon Manager based in Braunton

"I love going to Crow Point. It’s very peaceful and windswept and not many people know about it. Whoops, maybe I should I have said somewhere else then!"

♥ Sunset at Croyde Beach – there's nowhere else I would rather be!

About Oliver

I have a young family, a wife and two children, so a lot of my time is spent primarily entertaining our children. I am now an expert on the soft play areas in North Devon! When I do get time for any of my own hobbies I enjoy surfing (I’m not as good as I used to be though due to the lack of practice) and any type of fitness exercise. I am often seen on a Saturday morning at Croyde Beach enjoying a beach boot camp fitness session. I love going to Crow Point. It’s very peaceful and windswept and not many people know about it. Whoops, maybe I should I have said somewhere else then!

About Gloria

I am the New Business Manager at Marsdens Devon Cottages where I have worked for eleven years. I live in Braunton where our office is based and have two Cockerpoos, Lola and Snoopy who I walk on the Tarka Trail every day, however they are especially thrilled when I take them onto the beach at Saunton or Woolacombe, particularly out of season when the weather is cooler and the beaches are less crowded. I enjoy visiting Ilfracombe and having a coffee on the harbour at No1 The Quay. I also like strolling along Instow beach or Appledore Quay and popping into one of the John’s cafes to sample their delicious local produce. My absolute favourite place though is Braunton Village which is filled with so many wonderful culinary delights such as At One Bistro, Squires Fish and chips and of course SQ Restaurant where you can while away the evening listening to Live music, drinking cocktails or sampling some fantastic food from their extensive menu!

Debbie Ashley

New Business Consultant based in Braunton

"Since I have lived here I joined the Ilfracombe Gig Rowing Club which was the best thing I did as being part of this enabled me to see what the coast looks like from the other side."

♥ Sitting on the quiet part of Croyde beach after a days work.

About Debbie

I moved to North Devon almost 14 years ago now from Lincolnshire and I bought a tearoom in Lynton and ran this for 4 years. Since I have lived here I joined the Ilfracombe Gig Rowing Club which was the best thing I did as being part of this enabled me to see what the coast looks like from the other side. I have taken part in many regattas rowing from Instow, Appledore and Ilfracombe. I also love walking in this area as not only do you have the stunning sea views but places such as Watersmeet, no matter what the weather. Kayaking from Lee Bay on a hot summers day is such a fantastic thing to experience especially with my Cockerpoo sat with me.

Melanie Toms

Portfolio Development Manager based in Dartmouth

"Living locally means I can talk to owners and guests in detail about what this area has to offer and appreciate it for myself too."

♥ Passion Fruit cocktail and live music at Libertys in Brixham.

About Melanie

I’m a born and bred Devon ‘maid’ - I eat, sleep and breath this area of South Devon and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! I love it. Living locally means I can talk to owners and guests in detail about what this area has to offer and appreciate it for myself too. I’ve been working at Blueriver Cottages since Valentine’s Day 2015 and I believe it is a match made in heaven and completely meant to be! I thoroughly enjoy visiting homeowners and their properties to talk about how we can help grow their holiday let as a business and build meaningful relationships so they feel part of the family. I love taking my gorgeous dog for a walk to Brixham Shoalstone Pool where she can dip her paws in the sea and visit Berry Head Hotel for a little tipple.

Agnese Zaple

Property Assistant based in Dartmouth

"People and property are what I love the most."

♥ A visit to Sharpham Winery to appreciate the nature walks.

About Agnese

I was born in the lovely country Latvia and have always lived by the sea. My professional career has a record of 15 years relationship management and sales in banking, real estate and travelling. People and property is what I love the most. I fell in love with an Englishman which brought me to this beautiful location Torquay and Devon, where I now live. I am a passionate traveller and my favourite destination is Italy. I speak three languages and can understand two more. I would consider myself as quite a humorous person, however extremely focused on the job in hand.

Natalie Haxton

New Business Consultant in Salcombe

"The South Hams is one of my favourites places to be."

♥ "You'll find me on the beach".

About Natalie

I have recently joined Blueriver Cottages as a New Business Consultant and also recently relocated back to Devon – my home. Having always worked within the holiday letting industry both here in the West Country and across Europe, the South Hams is one of my favourites places to be. We’re extremely lucky to be surrounded by beautiful coastlines, lush green countryside and backed by the rugged moors. I grew up on Dartmoor, however, my passion has always been the coast and now I’m very fortunate enough to live by the sea with my husband and daughter. In my spare time, you’ll find me on the beach, building sandcastles, catching crabs and this summer attempting to paddleboard on the Erme estuary.
