About us.....

We are a British business, situated in the west of England on the south coast of Devon.

A county very much affected by the fisheries & damaging agricultural policies of Europe!!

If you are interested in where we are based?   Check out the video at the bottom of the page! 

or here is a live webcam of our coastal town.

 

Although we believe in a united Europe and want to be friends with all our European neighbours, and to visit them for holidays,  we do not want to be part of the unaccountable EU organisation in Brussels, we want to be able to control the waters around our Island nation. Not for non-elected people in Brussels to decide what we can catch and eat or throw back into the oceans or the crazy policy of quotas hoppers, particularly the spanish !!

 

We do not want to be ruled by un-elected burocrats with no say over the laws of our own country.  Even with the Brexit deal, they still get a say in how we do things. Why is it always the British that adhere to the law and the Europeans break the rules all the time, or simply ignore the rules???

 

From my own experience, there was the time back in the 80's when the French set fire to lorries with live sheep in transit...they did not care that the animals suffered a horrific death, as long as they get their own point across...not very humane I say!

But all in all, people still wish to travel to Europe and enjoy the differences of another country's people and customs. It is one of the best ways to get to understand each other better.    

NO EU...just European Countries with all their wonderful individuality.

 

To this end we would always say to visit or spend your holidays in whatever part of Europe you enjoy, so as to meet local people, enjoy  their different cuisine, culture, language and enrich your knowledge of your fellow humans, but not the burocrats of Brussels!..

 

But when back in the UK, please buy only British products when you can, to help our small local businesses survive and thrive..

 

You might not think so, but your UK purchase supports a small British business, Family firm or self-employed tradesmen/women and ensures they can better support their families!!

 

All our advertisers are british businesses promoting as many british products as possible.

We ask you to support them whenever you are considering a purchase.

'Old Walls' vineyard is nearby, so we are able to purchase ENGLISH wines!

There was evidence of a vineyard on the land more than 2000 years ago.

The Romans took advantage of the south facing slopes and well-drained soil, as we are doing once more. The name ‘Old Walls’ has been adopted from its proximity to another place of historical interest,

 

The ‘Bishops Palace’. Walter Bronsecombe, a native of Exeter, took over as bishop in 1258, displaying an integrity of character and attention to ecclesiastical duties. He secured a market and fair for Bishopsteignton in 1270, and during the following decade instigated the construction of the Bishop’s Palace, the inspiration of the naming of Old Walls Vineyard. All that is left of the 13th century building are some small sections of wall which we have taken care to help restore and keep on display for furture generations.

Besides selling wine, you can book an overnight accommodation and wine tour!

The view outside our offices window

 

We are lucky that our offices are only a few minutes walk from the beaches and harbour....but we also benefit from all the events that take place in the centre, such as this Folk dancing.
