Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
1¼ miles inland from the beach and Bantham village and approached by ¼ mile of private lane, a handsome, semi-detached Edwardian house on three floors with lovely, rural views over the gentle, tranquil valley in which it shelters. To the back and side, an enclosed lawned garden on several levels with a grape-vine shaded table/bench at the top, small lawn and two decked areas with table/chairs and recliner chairs – great for early morning coffee or sundowners.
From the lane, a few steps up to front door; hall with original tiled floor and two ground-floor bedrooms – a twin (no clothes-hanging space) and a double with pretty views; shower-room (suite). Stairs (stairgates) up to large living/dining room with woodburner, TV/DVD/video, iPod dock and large bay window with lovely valley views; well-equipped kitchen at the back (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, butler sink, double oven) and stable doors to garden. More stairs up to two further bedrooms – a twin with en suite shower-room (suite) and a very roomy double (5' wrought iron bed) with big bay window with seating and more lovely valley views; bathroom (suite plus hand-shower, tumble drier, washing machine in cupboard). Spring water. Parking for two big or three smaller vehicles. Damages Deposit £150. A lovely peaceful place to return to after a fun family day on the beach.

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.
Bantham: tiny village (good food pub, shop, seasonal café) with fabulous sandy beach at the mouth of the river Avon. When tide is out, ¾ mile walk across the sand (or seasonal passenger ferry) to Bigbury-on-Sea (golf) and Burgh Island. Hotel spa, restaurant and golf at Thurlestone, 2 miles; Kingsbridge, 4; Salcombe, 5.
