Foss Cottage, East Prawle, South Devon, faces south, straight out to sea. It is a delightful self-catering holiday cottage, right on the edge of East Prawle on the beautiful South Devon coast between Salcombe and Dartmouth - ideal for beach holidays, walking holidays or bird enthusiasts. In Foss Cottage you can see the sea while lying in bed in the main bedrooms. There is a large front garden with flower beds and terraces for sunbathing and eating out. At the west side of the cottage is an orchard, also with lovely views and play space with trampoline, paths up through the rocks and hidden seats for sunbathing and reading..

The cottage has always been a family cottage with a happy feel and an individual style. The rooms are spacious and the furniture is comfortable and cottage style - good quality but not institutional. The walls are covered with pictures. The sitting room is large and bright and has a lovely open fire with night storage & electric heaters for backup. The bookshelves are full of light reading. There is a panoramic view of the Channel. The kitchen is large and has a round table for family eating.

The cottage is an ideal rental for families who want a well-equipped self-catering option, sleeping 8+, (there are beds for 9 people, a spare mattress and a cot, so if all guests are adults 8 would be optimum but up to 10 with children) but equally delightful for a couple or small group. Good for beach holidays (numerous beaches), walking (the West Coastal Path of South Devon), sailing and activities, and also winter breaks as there is good heating and a log fire.

There are 2 fridges, a freezer, a modern electric stove and also a dishwasher, a washing machine and a dryer. All rooms except one back bedroom also have a view of the sea. There are electric heaters in the bedrooms and heaters and open fire in the sitting room.

The two main bedrooms are double rooms - large, light and airy, facing the sea. There is a smaller back room with single/twin beds (no view) and another single/twin bedroom with a view facing west. There are two bathrooms. Garden, terraces, orchard, table for eating out

There is a large garden with an orchard, with room for children to play and camp. Paths to seats above the house give wonderful views over the seascape. You can sit up there and read where no one can find you. Sometimes at spring half term lambs are born in the field in front. Big sailing boats, or once a Russian style submarine, and even the Royal yacht Britannia when it still existed, pass quite close in front. The sea and sky change constantly and there is always something to watch. There is a micro-climate at East Prawle and often the wind holds the clouds back over the land and we can have sun in Prawle on cloudy days.

The nearest beach, Horsley, is roughly 1/2 mile's walk away, under 1 km. There are many glorious beaches, some sandy, some rocky, some shingle, some accessibly by car, all along the coast. You can take your pick and vary the beach you go to each day if you like.
