About Christopher Osborne

My wife, Sharon and I, have been holidaying in Thurlestone for the last 5 years or so. In the last 2 and half years we have been lucky enough to share this amazing location with our energetic daughter who absolutely loves visiting the local beaches.

Our flat is great for couples and families with children of all ages. We have accommodated the needs of families by providing a travel cot, high chair, monitors and toys based on our own experiences of renting holiday homes and have tried to think of everything to make life easier and enjoyable for you!

We hope you enjoy the flat as much as we do!

Christopher Osborne purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Christopher Osborne chose Kingsbridge

The most relaxing location we have ever stayed in. Amazing views and great location. Fantastic for couples and families, golfers, bird watchers, walkers (we are literally on the door step of South West Coast path), surfers, paddleboarders, fisherman, or for those that purely wish to relax and take in the views.

What makes this apartment unique

Stunning views, quiet location in close proximity to four amazing beaches, village with local pub and great walks. Bantham beach has recently been voted one of the top 10 beaches in Europe and is described by Lonely Planet as “a true all-rounder, good for surfers, families and walkers.”

No 5 The Downs Thurlestone. Superb in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous apartment with exceptional views. It is very well equipped and no expense spared with the quality of furnishings.

The building is at the highest point in Thurlestone and you can watch the sun rise and set from the property.

Very quiet and relaxing.

This part of Devon is ideal for coastal walking and Thurlestone is an ideal base.

We hope to be back very soon.

lovely apartment with outstanding views towards sea

comfortable and well equipped apartment in village close to the sea and footpaths, but the best thing about it has to be the views which are stunning.

Very comfortable for 2 retired couples.

  • 5 of 5

2 double bedrooms, maybe not super king bed size, but so comfy we all slept so well.

Lashings of hot water, CH, 2 loos, and everything else worked so well!

Locals have a system for locking or just shutting the outer & inner hall doors, which we were happy to observe, as we were on the first floor. The views from here were just amazing even when the weather was “murky”, so that you could see what was coming in next from the South.

Loads of parking.

We loved the privacy of being up a long drive which afforded accessibility with peace & quiet.

The Downs is within walking distance to both Thurlestone Sands (overlooking Thurlestone Rock) and Bantham beaches. Bantham is a small village with amazing beach, and pub (The Sloop). The beach is wonderful and overlooks Burgh Island. You can hire surf boards and there is a gastro van in the car park. It has recently been voted by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 beaches in Europe!
