The West Country region

Gold Conservation Award. Safe award-winning beaches, including the Blue Flag beach at Bigbury-on-Sea

with its vast golden beach leading up to Burgh Island. Close to some of Devon’s finest beaches, seaside towns and countryside. Just minutes from beautiful beaches, including the Blue Flag beach at Bigbury-on-Sea where, at low tide, you can walk across the sandy causeway to Burgh Island, home to The 14th century smugglers' pub, The Pilchard, and the fine Art Deco hotel where Agatha Christie stayed and wrote some of her murder mystery detective novels. If time runs away and you miss the tide you can catch the amazing sea tractor back to dry land and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining by the sea.

It is close to the picturesque towns of Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Totnes.

We believe the carbon footprint of a holiday is as important as the fond memories you take home. We take our commitment to responsible tourism very seriously. The South Hams is still untouched by mass tourism, and The Thatches where the Beach House sits is dedicated to preserving its little slice of Devon heaven for generations to come.

The Thatches is a wildlife haven. Recent conservation initiatives have included erecting owl, bat and bird boxes, introducing a recycling scheme, installing water butts and using eco-friendly cleaning products and recycled stationery. No wonder leading conservationist, Sir David Bellamy has awarded The Thatches his coveted conservation award the highest level: Gold.

The Thatches enjoys spectacular views across the South Hams, a designated area of outstanding beauty, and is surrounded by beautiful woodland and gardens, making it a glorious place to relax and unwind.

Available to rent throughout the year – popular out of season with walkers, golfers, sailors and foodies and perfect for a family holiday at any time. This lodge at The Thatches provides everything you could wish for your dream holiday or taking a self-catering break away. Bigbury Golf Club is down the road and non-members can play as a visitor.


The charming medieval town of Modbury is only a mile away. With its traditional inns where you can enjoy locally made cider and ale. The town has a fine butcher, organic grocer, old fashioned bakery, ironmonger, gift shops and much more - everything for your holiday provisions. Children will love spending their pocket money in the 'Top of The Steps'.

Bigbury-on-Sea provides plenty of fine 'sand castle sand' along with excellent facilities for families. Rekindle your childhood memories at Bantham, paddling in rock pools, exploring the sand dunes or riding the waves on surfboard. If you'd rather relax, what better way to unwind than basking in the sun letting the world go by. Complete the perfect day by stopping off at one of the many fabulous local restaurants or country inns on the way back to your lodge.

The cosmopolitan seaside town of Salcombe is a well-known Mecca for the sailing fraternity and is one of the country's prettiest sailing and fishing harbours. Here you will find excellent boutiques, gift shops and a wide choice of restaurants, bistros and waterside inns. — in Salcombe. If you're lucky enough to stay at the Beach House in August, Salcombe's Regatta week is a must for the diray - plenty of fun for all the family, including the 'Spot the Bloomer' competition. Spot the item that doesn't belong in the shop window! A good excuse to window-shop!

Uncover Kingsbridge, an interesting 13th century town situated at the head of the estuary; a gourmet's delight with its delicatessens and regular farmer's market. There's also a cinema in the town.

"A lovely relaxing time."

We rented The Beach House at The Thatches as a last minute getaway in Devon for the Easter holidays. Obviously, you're always a little apprehensive but that was soon put to bed when we arrived. The Thatches is a lovely complex, 16 acres of well kept grounds with very tasteful lodges scattered around. The Beach House itself was perfect. The decor was very tasteful, with very nice furniture, a nice big LCD TV with HDMI if needed (I did). The kitchen is very well equipped and again, tastefully done with brand new brushed steel appliances.
The bedrooms are comfy, with the main bedroom having a kingsize bed and very nice en-suite shower and toilet. The main bathroom is very nice, with bath/shower and toilet. There is an additional twin and single bedroom, so sleeps 5 very easily.
The lodge itself is on the edge of the park and overlooks fields and Datrmoor in the distance, excellent views.
Outside is a reasonable sized decking which has a table ad chairs and a nice, large gas BBQ for those that like to eat alfresco.
As far as accommodation goes, we couldn't have been happier.
The Thatches itself, also has a very nice swimming pool, which our kids loved. A gym and a beauty therapy room. There is also a playground at the bottom of the park for the kids to mess around on when they're not swimming.
All in all, a very nice place to stay and heartily recommended to people wanting a relaxing time in the South Hams.

It's lovely to hear how much our visitors enjoy their time at The Beach House. Thank you for your lovely glowing review. We are so glad you enjoyed staying there as much as we do and hope you'll return. Do tell your friends too as from May we'll be able to accommodate 2 extra people (total of 7 guests) as a brand new sofa bed is arriving for the living room!
