A delightful, cosy Fisherman's cottage in a perfect location, right on the beach overlooking Start Bay in the village of Beesands. It has been modernised to a high standard, but retains bags of charm.

Close to Kingsbridge and Salcombe in South Devon, Beesands has all the ingredients for the perfect beach holiday. There is a mile long shingle beach with fields and a freshwater lake, Widdecombe Ley, just behind it. Day fishing boats still operate from the beach and fantastic local seafood can be purchased at the Britannia Fish cafe. You can have perfectly fresh fish and chips on the premises or buy Start Bay lobster, hand-dived scallops or other local fish to cook at the cottage. Just three doors from the cottage is the Cricket Inn. This gastro-pub offers an excellent range of high quality food or you can just drop in for a drink.

Beesands beach has picked up a Blue Flag award for its which means its reached high standards of cleanliness and safety and also merits an entry in the Good Beach Guide from the Marine Conservation Society. Beesands is a great spot for water based activities such as windsurfing, canoeing, sailing and surfing or body boarding.

One of the most stunning sections of the Devon coast path can be reached directly from Beesands. You can walk past the remnants of the lost village of Hallsands, swept away by huge storms in 1903 and 1917 to reach Start Point lighthouse and some stunning hidden sandy coves. Other great sandy beaches such as Lannacombe, Gara Rock and East Portlemouth can be reached in a few minutes by car or rather longer on foot. The Pigs Nose pub at East Prawle is about 4 miles away and a definite 'must visit' while you're in the area.
