Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Bayview, originally a coastguard cottage, is ideally placed in the hamlet of South Hallsands and boasts breathtaking views of the whole of Start Bay, from the lighthouse and across the wide sweep of the bay, on the southern tip of South Devon. Through the large windows of this spacious house, enjoy the unique experience of the glow emanating from the Start Point lighthouse. The nearby, historic ruined village of Hallsands is well worth a visit or explore the famous South West Coastal Path, which is right on the doorstep. Alternatively, the family can pack up and head to the beach for the day, which is only a short walk away; this is a perfect place to enjoy sea kayaking, as kayaks can be carried down and secured at North Hallsands beach. Enjoy a refreshing drink and a delicious meal at the Cricket Inn at Beesands or venture further afield to the excellent seafood restaurant, The Start Bay Inn at Torcross, which will also easily satisfy your cravings. Bayview, a perfect base for a South Devon holiday, is a very well equipped, practical family home in a fantastic location and benefits from a large, private garden that can easily entertain the children for hours, so the parents can enjoy sipping wine and relaxing in front of the views when they have tired of the outdoors.

"Fantastic location & views"
My wife and I stayed at Bayview for a week in June and on our return immediately booked a second week in October. We love to visit the South Hams and walk with our dogs. Bayview was a very comfortable base with the South West Coast Path just at the front of the house. The views are stunning and the property is very well furnished and very comfortable, the attic bedroom conversion is exceptionally good with views of Start Bay and the Lighthouse from your bed.
We booked via Toad Hall Cottages and got excellent service from them as we have done for the past 10 years or more.
There was a minor issue on arrival with keys but very quickly and efficiently resolved by Toad Hall and the property management company.
Thanks for your review- it really is a stunning property in an amazing position. Perfectly positioned on the South West coastal path it really does make for a perfect getaway.
