Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Delightful, Spacious Cottage To Sleep 8 Close To Beaches & The Sw Coastal Path

**We offer Short Break stays in off-peak periods throughout the year, so please feel free to enquire for information about our 'Less than 7 night' tariffs.**

Breathtaking location with priceless views, that won’t break the bank!

Located along the most southerly point of Devon and boasting striking sea views of the rugged coastline of Prawle Point, this friendly and inviting coastguard cottage provides a fabulous and enviable retreat for fans of the great outdoors!

The pretty modernised holiday cottage is arranged over 3 floors and provides comfortable sea view accommodation for groups of up to 8, with bright and spacious rooms to ensure guests have the perfect holiday retreat in which to relax and entertain.

The sunny living room enjoys dramatic direct 180° sea views and provides a wonderful home-from-home environment for guests, with a pair of sofas fronting a cosy wood burning stove, a flat screen TV and Wi-Fi with a strong signal is all on hand for you to enjoy.

The lounge door lead directly out to a south facing private garden which offers an outdoor terrace area ideal for enjoying alfresco dinner parties and enviously bathed in all day sunshine. The far reaching sea views from here also provide an idyllic backdrop to top your Devon stay!

Extending beyond the lounge area is a charming country style dining area with those fabulous seascapes still in view! It’s just perfect for enjoying year-round gatherings, come rain or shine. The beautiful solid pine table comfortably sits up to 8 and the warm cosy feel sets the scene for an intimate coastguard cottage luncheon or dinner party. A separate kitchen in between the front door and downstairs WC; provides all the practical space and appliances required for cooking delicious home-cooked meals during your stay.

The Coastguard Cottage further benefits from versatile family-friendly sleeping accommodation for up to 8 guests, with a sea view, master king size loft bedroom with en-suite wet room at the very top of the house, a second sea view queen size en-suite bedroom, a third twin bedroom with shower room next door and a fourth bedroom furnished with bunk beds ~ the lower level being a double size!

**Please Note: the NEW HomeAway nightly pricing & tariff calculator displayed to the right, calculates nightly rates by taking the weekly tariff rate and dividing it by 7. This nightly rate is misrepresented, as it does not take into account Short Break Percentages explained in the Tariff Notes section below. Sadly we have no control over this new trend towards nightly 'hotel-style' pricing so please get in touch and we will be happy to help you further.**

From this fabulous holiday home, guests can’t help being fully bewitched by the coastal beauty on the doorstep and with the scenic South Coastal Path running straight past the bottom of the garden on National Trust owned land!

Review by Sarah from Cheltenham: "5*stars! Lovely cottage with stunning views."

Guestbook comments from the manager

A very comfortable and well appointed cottage with a lovely little garden and a great view of the sea beyond.A perfect place to relax, go for walks (along the coastal footpath which passes the end of the garden) and visit gems of beaches nearby.It's very quiet and all you hear at night is the sound of the sea.

From this fabulous holiday home, guests can’t help being fully bewitched by the coastal beauty on the doorstep and with the scenic South Coastal Path running straight past the bottom of the garden on National Trust owner land! The friendly nearby Pig’s Nose Inn with frequent musical entertainment is a real favourite to those who know of it. The Piglet Stores next door offer all the necessary groceries should you need to re-stock ~ both are just a 10-15 minute walk away. Walkers, bird watchers and families can all be sure of a memorable Devon holiday with lots to explore in the great outdoors!

The peaceful nearby coves, like the fine sandy beach at Maceley Cove give a real Mediterranean feel and are perfect for enjoying coastal picnics and family beach days during the summer months. The nearby sailing towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge provide a wide range of activities and attractions to enjoy; from water sports, horse riding and golf, to the fascinating National Trust properties of Overbeck’s, the enchanting Greenway home of Agatha Christie not to mention Coleton Fishacre with its luxuriant garden by the sea. Don’t miss the popular Steam Railway journey between Paignton & Kingswear or the numerous River Dart cruises in the bay.

Leave the car and catch the ferry from nearby East Portlemouth (4 miles away) which sails across to nearby Salcombe, car free and avoiding the narrow streets of Salcombe! With many cafés, restaurants & pubs plus lots of independent shops & boutiques to peruse, it’s a fun day out.

Have you ever wondered.... why not all lighthouses are the same colour, what they look like inside or why lighthouses are no longer manned? Well join in on one of the fascinating Start Point Lighthouse tours ~ really nothing beats the shear variety, beauty and charm of Devon!
