Who Are We?


We are Neill & Iggy. We have been at the helm of Fifth Sense since May 2019 after acquiring the business which had been successfully trading for 5 years.

Neill grew up in Modbury & Iggy is a Londoner. We moved to Modbury in 2018 following Neill’s mother’s terminal cancer diagnosis. The plan was to stay for 12 months & move back to London but the charm & beauty of Modbury won us both over & after 4 months we had put in the offer for the business meaning we were staying!

One month after getting the keys to the shop we got married in Hasting, East Sussex So 2019 was a pretty full on year for us.

We live above the shop with our cats Chloe & Midnight & our new puppy Cooper. We are currently undergoing a massive renovation project on the Grade II listed building.
