ABOUT US - We're Peter and Alexis and we live in Dunstable, Bedfordshire.

Alexis works in the local community rehabilitating people who have lost their sight and is also a Management Trustee for a local voluntary organisation. Peter is now semi-retired and has owned Tanpits for over 25 years.

Until recently Tanpits has always been let out by an Agent but in 2017 we decided the time had come to fly the agent-nest and market Tanpits ourselves.

Not only do we own Tanpits, but we holiday there too. So we love it. We love nothing better than being surrounded by peace and quiet in South Devon with our friends, and family and their respective dogs (and cats).  

Our passion is travel and holidays and we’ve been lucky enough to explore quite a bit of the world. So we know what makes for a good time, we have high standards and we like nothing better than helping others to have special time in a special place.

We hope you will fall  in love with Tanpits the way we have.

Contact us for more information or to enquire about your preferred dates.

Happy holidays.
