Overview

About the property

Seaside Chalet- Sleeps 4

Welcome to No. 74 Bovisand Park and after a good nights sleep wake to the sound of the seagulls. Take a deep breath of the clean sea air...and relax...start your holiday in a good place...

No. 74 is an ideal location to explore Devon, Dartmoor and Cornwall; walk the scenic South West coastal paths; enjoy a quiet family beach holiday; or simply ’escape from it all’.

The chalet is situated on the cliffs of the south west coast path overlooking the waters of Plymouth Sound. This cosy haven enjoys maximum sun during the day and stunning sunsets in the evening.

Bovisand Park is a private, gated community with chalets lining the cliffs and a café and small shop on site. Please note that this is not a commercial holiday park. The nearest village is Down Thomas, which has a pub (The Mussel Inn), post office and general store.

There is always plenty to watch as Plymouth (6 miles away) is a naval base, active port, fishing harbour, and a place for yachting.

No. 74's central position on the south west coast makes it the perfect location for exploring Devon and Cornwall - The Eden Project - St Ives Galleries - the pretty Dartmoor Villages - Dartmouth - Salcombe - the English Riviera - all within easy driving distance.

Ideally situated for easy access to the beach and the South West Coast Path, for all lovers of the countryside, artists, photographers, bird watchers and walkers.

No. 74, an ideal holiday stay for a couple or a small family.

The chalet has an open plan sitting room with a well equipped kitchen area with oven, microwave, fridge, washing machine, etc. There is a flat screen TV, DVD and stereo. We also have Economy 7 heating throughout.

There is 1 double bedroom looking out onto the rear patio area, with wardrobe and bedside cabinets. The second bedroom has a day bed with pull out single bed. This provides 2 singles or, combined together, the beds can become a double. The modern bathroom has a pump shower. Duvet covers, pillow cases, sheets and towels are not included and guests should bring their own. There is a supply of duvets and pillows for your use.

The attractive rear patio garden has a table with chairs and sun loungers. The shed is also available for your use and provides additional storage.

Charges are for a maximum of 4 persons and are inclusive of electricity and parking for one car (no gas at the chalet). Please contact us if there will be more than one car so that parking permits can be arranged. This will incur an additional charge of £3.00 per night. Bovisand Park is a non-commercial private estate with allocated parking.

Departure 10am - Arrivals after 3pm.

No smoking or pets please. No barbeques are allowed either on the property or on the beaches.

Location

The chalet is situated on the South West Coast Path. It is the perfect location for exploring Devon and Cornwall - The Eden Project - St Ives Galleries - the pretty Dartmoor Villages - Dartmouth - Salcombe - the English Riviera - all within easy driving distance.

Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions. Come rain or shine you'll find something for everyone among the city streets, surrounding countryside and marine environment beyond.

There are well-known landmarks, historical sites and natural assets to explore across Plymouth's many unique areas and districts.

Wander the Barbican's quaint cobbled quayside following in the Pilgrim Father's footsteps or visit the National Marine Aquarium with its deepwater fish tanks. Sample Plymouth's finest export at the Blackfriars Gin Distillery or take a boat trip around the Sound from Mayflower Steps.

There's more family fun to be had up on the Hoe where you can climb the iconic Smeaton's Tower lighthouse. Take the plunge at Tinside Lido, our restored Art Deco swimming pool or simply take in the panoramic view of busy boating activity from this stunning natural amphitheatre.

Out on the water you can take a floating tour of Drake's Island, the Naval Dockyards and River Tamar, book a behind the scenes tour of Devonport Naval Base or stick your own paddle in the water at Mountbatten Water sports Centre.

If its entertainment you're after the nationally acclaimed Theatre Royal showcases some of the UK's biggest and best productions throughout the year, whilst the Pavilions has leisure and entertainment under one roof with its packed event diary of live gigs and shows along with the ice rink. And there's art aplenty at the City Museum and Art Gallery, Plymouth Arts Centre and the Peninsula Arts venues.

Further a field you can stroll round the many stately homes and gardens in the area, get up close to some big cats at Dartmoor Zoological Park, travel down the Tamar by rail or take to the (dry!) slopes at the John Nike ski and leisure centre.

And if the great British weather is really inclement there are also indoor play centres at Jump and Drake's Den, a multiplex cinema and ten-pin bowling at the Barbican Leisure Park – all guaranteed to keep the children amused!

Visit the UK's largest aquarium and be amazed at our fascinating underwater world.

Start with a rock pool ramble in Shallow Waters then move deeper into the coastal seas of the Atlantic Reef. Follow the mesmerising Ocean Drifters and enter the depths of the aquarium in our Lost At Sea exhibition. Here you'll find the Atlantic Ocean tank teeming with sharks, rays, tarpon and countless other species swimming in shoals or grazing on a sunken WWII sea plane.

Beautiful views and a relaxing chalet, clean, tidy and very restful.

  • 5 of 5

The views were gorgeous. The chalet, whilst small was clean and well presented and thoughtfully equipped.

I would recommend and would return.

Thank you

Dishwasher and bedlinen WANTED! Answers on questions WANTED! Great view!

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed the stay and the coastal walks but I would like to know why I never got answers on all my questions about bed linen, beds etc. before we arrived.

When will I be paid back the deposit?

Providing towels and bedlinen and a dishwasher would make the organisation much easier. The price for the two bedrooms is very high but I loved the view and the smell of the fresh wind.

I have double checked and I can't find the enquiry you made.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We loved this chalet. It was was warm, clean and comfortable. The views are amazing, it was lovely to sit and look out over Plymouth Sound and watch the boats. The coast path runs along the front of the property with lots of interconnecting paths, which makes for some fantastic walks.

We were on the beach one evening when we saw a stoat out hunting!

However, guests need to be well prepared, the site shop was mostly closed and the nearest shop is a good drive away. I had my groceries delivered by Tesco at the start of the holiday and so we were well provisioned.
