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 South Hams

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.”

Great apartment in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here and really enjoyed our holiday. The apartment is really spacious and well equipped, with fantastic views from the lounge window.

Walking distance to Bantham and Thurlestone all downhill on the way out but steep hills on the return which was good for burning all the calories consumed at the local pubs!

Amazing flat! Spacious, homely, quiet, clean, very well equipt with amazing views of the sea.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many rentals over the last few years and all based in and around Thurlestone. This was definitely our favourite. The photos don't do it justice and to be honest they are pretty good! The panoramic sea views really are spectacular from the sitting/dining room/kitchen and even the two bedrooms have far reaching views of Thurlestone and rolling hills. The flat has everything you could ask for and is very well equipt. The hallway, kitchen and large utility/shower room have wooden or such like flooring which is very useful if you have children or a dog. The remaining rooms have lovely sumptuous carpet which makes if feel very homely. The other residents were very quiet and friendly.

There are many dog walks around the area and some straight from The Downs. Bantham beach is about 20 mins walk and has a dog friendly area over towards the estuary. Thurlestone is also dog friendly but not quite walkable with surf boards etc. Thurlestone village is under 5 mins walk across a small field. The Village Inn pub was lovely, great atmosphere, lovely food and dogs welcome! The village store is also well equipt but Kingsbridge is only 10 mins drive away which has a Morrisons and Tesco's.

On a couple of the less sunny afternoons we played tennis at Thurlestone golf club. They have several grass courts and a couple of all weather - you don't have to be a member. The golf course also looks pretty spectacular.

All in all fantastic flat, can't recommend it enough and brilliant holiday!

Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

With two energetic boys and a dog, a beach holiday is just what is needed, the flat provided a great base with wonderful views, so much so, none of us wanted to go out in the evening, preferring to stay in and play games or just watch the stunning view.

Thank you so much for letting us stay, Jenni

Clean, comfortable apartment with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was spacious, clean and had lots of extra additions to make our stay enjoyable. Lovely smart kitchen with all the appliances you could need, smart lounge and two nicely decorated bedrooms. Jacuzzi bath and separate shower, would be lovelier perhaps without the carpet in the bathroom. Location is perfect and the local pub delicious. Only comment would be some amenities in the outside space would be good.

Fantastic apartment in a superb setting......

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I, along with our chocolate lab, Hershey, have had many holidays throughout the UK. The Downs is up there with the best accommodations we have stayed in and definitely number one for location and views. No. 5 is without doubt a real home from home. Well stocked kitchen, big comfy sofas you can stretch out on after a day's walking/activities and we slept soundly every night. There is an amazing power shower and a relaxing Jacuzzi bath. Chris texted us on the evening we arrived to check we were there, that everything was OK and wished us a good holiday, which I thought was a nice touch. The area and beaches are outstanding, with loads of places to eat and drink. If I was to sum it up in one word it would be........Perfect!

The apartment is walking distance to the Village Inn pub (excellent food and drink), and village shop/ post office plus Thurlestone Golf and tennis club.

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!

The apartment is around 5 miles from Kingsbridge and 8 miles from Salcombe.
