Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Rest Cottage accommodates four to five guests and is located on the beautiful coastline of South Devon, between the popular sailing resorts of Salcombe and Dartmouth. There are many beautiful beaches within just a short distance and keen walkers can enjoy coastal walks along the south west coast path which runs almost on the doorstep.
The cottage is perfectly located for a delightful holiday by the sea and lives up to its name, providing the perfect retreat where you can relax and unwind. It has been sympathetically renovated to provide modern facilities and accommodation whilst retaining the character of a centuries-old listed building, including original beams and an inglenook fireplace. The cottage also affords seaviews from the master bedroom and private garden.
Situated on the outskirts of the thriving village of Stokenham, Rest Cottage is within walking distance of two good pubs serving food and has an excellent farmshop nearby. Torcross beach is within walking distance and Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe are all just a short drive.
There are plenty of sandy beaches including Gara Rock, Mattiscombe (where you can take a tour around Start Point lighthouse) and Blackpool sands to the East, a beautiful, pine-fringed, safe bay with shop, cafe and water sports. Bantham is also nearby and great for surfers and lessons can be booked at nearby Bigbury-on-Sea, which is worth visiting with its large expanse of sandy beach. From here you can take a ride on the sea tractor which takes you out to Burgh Island with it's famous art-deco hotel.
Alternatively, you can drive to East Portlemouth where you will find more lovely beaches, and can take a ferry across to Salcombe with its interesting shops, restaurants, pubs and sailing. From Dartmouth, take a cruise up the river, visit the Castle, go crabbing on the quayside, or simply sit back and enjoy watching the boats.
Short breaks are available most of the year but in summer , and other busy periods can only usually be booked as "last - minute" holidays. i.e. within 2 weeks of arrival. Please enquire if you are interested and we will try to accommodate you.
Please note: guests must complete a booking form prior to the holiday. Check in/out times apply. You will need to bring towels.
