The West Country / Devon region
The South Hams of Devon. Beautiful, accessible coastline --the coast path is well maintained by the National Trust. Farming and fishing villages. Rivers and estuaries. Sandy beaches. The area enjoys a generally warm and sunny climate -- touch wood! -- sheltered as it is by Dartmoor in the north. The valleys and coves very often benefit from their own surprisingly temperate microclimates.
The Dartmouth / Strete area
There We have a highly regarded restaurant, the Laughing Monk, in the old National School classroom. The village post office and stores is the hub of the village life, where you can buy almost anything. There is a welcoming Anglican church and a friendly and thriving chapel.
We are ideally placed for the historic naval port and sailing centre of Dartmouth. Also for the lovely river Dart for boat trips up to Totnes and visiting Agatha Christie's former home high on the riverbank, now open to the public. Twenty minutes by car is the Tudor -- now New Age -- town of Totnes,and a mile further on the beautiful gardens and arts cente at Dartington.
Dartmouth Golf and Country Club is three miles up the lane.Just beyond the golf club is Woodlands Leisure park for animals, water rides, boating lakes, and woodland walks. .
The tastiest crabs and lobsters can be bought at Dartmouth, Beesands and Salcombe. But above all there's the sheltered, sandy coves at Blackpool Sands and East Portemouth which are ideal for safe swimming and children's buckets and spades, the five mile long curve of shingle, including secluded naturist beach at Slapton Sands, and the fabulous coastal walking.
And if, if by any chance you find you are missing the city life, there's Plymouth (Theatre Royal and Drum theatre, historic Barbican and dockyards, and the wide grassy expanse of Plymouth Hoe where Drake insisted on finishing his game of bowls before sailing out to fight the Spanish Armada) just an hour away. Also an hour away is ther incredible Dartmoor National Park, with more prehistoric monuments than anywhere else in Europe, perfecrt for picnics and guided walks in a primordial landscape.

Fabulous rental with a lovely enclosed private garden which was great for the dog. The views from the upstairs along the coast are wonderful and the view from the living room over the main house's garden is a birdwatchers paradise!
In a great location for access to all the south Devon coastline and Dartmoor.
