The Devon 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.


Strete: cliff-top village (pub, restaurant, PO/shop) ½ mile walk from a shingle beach. Cliff-top coast path walk to secret cove (¾ mile). Blackpool Sands (coarse sand, The Venus Café, Restaurant, Takeaway and Watersports), 1½ miles, and, a mile away, the magnificent crescent of Slapton Sands and Slapton Ley nature reserve (birdwatching, walks). Dartmouth (restaurants, cinema, river trips, steam railway), 5 miles.

"Great views, but with faults"

First, the upside. The cottage is in a great position for exploring Dartmouth, Salcombe, Slapton Sands and the South Hams. The views from the cottage are wonderful; straight out to sea in two directi… More

"Compact but cosy."

I have just returned from a week staying at this small, cosy cottage with my husband and small dog. It is situated on a cliff road and has beautiful costal views. There is no pathway along the road so… More

Thank you very much for sending us your feedback, I am glad that overall you and your husband enjoyed the property, but am sorry that you found it a little on the small side in places. I hope that despite this we will see you again in the future. Yours sincerely HH
