Our Roots

REFURB – from Pebbles was born from a service provided by Pebbles of Salcombe - a leading South Devon property management company founded in 2004 to help absent owners take care of their holiday homes and private second homes across South Devon and East Cornwall.  

Owners valued the quality of property maintenance that was being provided as part of the service, and proving to be a reliable local company, owners began asking for help with their refurbishment projects. Requests for decorating works to refresh holiday homes led to enquiries to project manage more complex refurbishments involving architectural and building works.

The team gained a reputation for transforming properties in the Salcombe and South Hams area, and the increased demand led to the formation of a dedicated project management and refurbishment service. Today, Refurb enjoys working with a range of clients across the wider region. We undertake projects of all sizes ranging from interior restyling to redesigning an entire property.

Our long-established background with second homes and the holiday home market, combined with our full scope of refurbishment capabilities, provides a unique expertise unrivalled by individual contractors.
