You have your own small secluded suntrap patio (seats, barbecue - N.B. no other play space) and the owners are pleased to show you their main garden on request. Inside, very attractive, modern handmade furniture throughout, nice views from most windows; living/dining/fitted kitchen (microwave, larder fridge) with lots of original watercolours, TV/DVD/video; two bedrooms – a double, and a bunk or single bedroom (top bunk folds up); bathroom (suite plus bath-shower), and washing machine and tumble drier area.

The West Country 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.
Ringmore: extremely pretty village (fine church, excellent pub), ¾ mile by foot from small, sandy Ayrmer Cove (Nat. Trust) and coast path. Good walking. Sandy beaches at Challaborough, 1 mile, Bigbury-on-Sea, 1½ miles by foot, 3 by car, and The Erme estuary, 2½ miles by foot or 3 by car. PO/shop, 1 mile. Excellent seafood restaurant, 2 miles.
