� 1� miles from East Portlemouth, eastwards along the coast, is Gara Rock, an utterly unique and spectacularly sited new development of 12 apartments and 5 cottages along with an excellent restaurant, all with fabulous, panoramic views seaward and towards the wild and rugged headlands of Prawle Point and beyond Salcombe Estuary to Bolt Tail. Once the dramatic site was home to a coastguard�s station; the thatched lookout hut remains. Now it is a place to relax and rejuvenate, hunker down and watch the ebb and flow of the tides rather than the clock. It�s a wild and remote spot, but also romantic and special - the sort of magical place that generations return to year after year. It is in a brilliant position for exploring the South West Coast Path that runs immediately below the development and hugs the coastline to the west, passing accessible coves en route to East Portlemouth (and the ferry to Salcombe and beyond), and eastwards towards East Prawle andStart Point. A footpath (steep in places) winds down the 550 yards from Gara Rock to unspoilt Rickham Cove (sandy, rock pools). The apartments and cottages have exclusive year-round use of the indoor swimming pool(kidney shape, 31� x 17� x 4�6�, available 8am to 8pm), jacuzzi, and sauna and steam room(available 12pm to 6pm). From the end of May until the end of September (8am to 8pm) there is also exclusive use of the outdoor swimming pool (50� x 14�6� x up to 4� deep) with changing rooms, showers and sunbathing terrace with loungers. The surrounding landscaped gardens are enclosed and carefully planted and there are lovely spots for sitting, relaxing and admiring the view. The contemporary restaurant (www.gararock.com/restaurant) for informal dining offers delicious meals and has a glazed wall for watching the view, plus terrace for outdoor dining, taking full advantage of the breathtaking views from its cliff-top position. The accommodation is set beyond the restaurant and within the enclosed grounds. Each apartment and cottage has sensational sea views; some have small balconies, others their own terraces overlooking the coastline. Inside, they are individual and finished to a high standard with well-equipped kitchens and smart bath or shower rooms. There are steps down from the car park. We currently let two cottages and four apartments. Damages Deposit �200. Apartment 12: a second-floor apartment on two levels. On the entrance level, open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, TV/DVD) with door to balcony (table/chairs) with magnificent coastal views towards Prawle Point; single bedroom; shower-room (suite). Upstairs (stairgates), two further bedrooms under the eaves � a double (5� bed) with French windows to small balcony and sea views, and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

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 Caf� 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.
