From one of the two terraces (table/chairs), door to hall, off which large living room (open fire, TV/DVD) with huge glass windows to take advantage of the view. Smart galley kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge) and, down 2 steps, dining area with creek views. Utility room (washing machine, chest freezer). Three bedrooms ' a double with en suite shower-room (suite), a twin with TV and French windows to terrace, and a bright single. Family bathroom (suite plus bath-shower).

The Devon region

The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.

Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton's long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth's beach and Salcombe's location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don't need to be brash; Bigbury's huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.

Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area's heart; Plymouth – the West Country's biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area's edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.

East Portlemouth

East Portlemouth: exclusive, historic village (lovely beaches, The Venus Café and Takeaway) across the sandy estuary from pretty Salcombe, the best boating/sailing place in the West Country. Pedestrian ferry (5 minute journey) runs continuously to Salcombe's interesting shops, pubs and restaurants (8.30am to 7.30pm in summer, reduced times in winter); harbour taxi available until late at night in summer.
