For some of the most panoramic views of this lovely coastline stay at Orchard House, a beautiful, large, detached property only a short distance from the beach.

Orchard House stands in its own secluded orchard and garden, overlooking Start Bay and the surrounding rolling countryside. A footpath runs by the side of the house and leads onto the South West Way coastal footpath. Turn right to the ruins of the old Hallsands fishing village, Start Point lighthouse, the superb Mattiscombe and Lannacombe beaches, Prawle Point and East Portlemouth. From here you can take the passenger ferry to Salcombe opposite, with lots of sailing activities on offer. Alternatively, turn left on the footpath to the fishing village of Beesands, Torcross, Slapton Sands, Slapton Leigh, Strete, Blackpool Sands, Stoke Fleming and on to the famous naval town of Dartmouth.

Dartmouth and Kingsbridge are both approximately eight miles away. There are plenty of local pubs with excellent menus including 'The Cricket Inn' at Beesands, 'The Church House Inn' at Stockenham and 'The Millbrook' at South Pool.

A comfortable house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable spacious house which has outstanding views of the surrounding countryside and coastline from almost every window. The approach is at the end of a farm track and there is sufficient parking for 3 cars on the drive. The house feels welcoming, is clean and well equipped. The master bedroom has an en suite shower and toilet and the other double and twin rooms each have washbasins which is handy with a larger number.Our party of 8 people included a mix of ages ranging from 9 to 89 and there was room enough for all of us to enjoy our own space. The gardens and orchard that surround the property are as lovely as the house and very tranquil after a busy day.

Hallsands is a 10 minute walk away and the coastal path is easily accessible from the property.

We met the owners at the start and end of our stay and they couldn't have been more friendly or helpful.

Sadly our week stay at Orchard House seemed to end all too quickly but we will be certain to return again.

Easter at The Orchard House

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a wonderful Easter week at The Orchard House.

I would highly recommend this property, from many points of view. The house itself is lovely, very light and spacious, and equipped to a very high standard. We particularly loved the kitchen, and the large range-style cooker, which made cooking for a large family a pleasure. Having two separate lounges was also a big bonus, so that people had plenty of space to do their own thing.

Open fires had been very kindly laid for us, but we found we didn't need these as the central heating was extremely effective.

We didn't need to take the car, to get at some beautiful walks. The South West Coast Path is a few minutes from the house, so we could get both to Start Point and to Beesands, without getting into the car. We particularly enjoyed the very spectacular path to Mattiscombe.

The orchard garden itself is beautiful, and very peaceful, if you don't feel like walking very far at all!

We also found the property extremely good value for money, and hope to return in the future.

Thank you Jan and Phillip for this lovely holiday experience.
