The Surf and Yoga Studio
Beach hut | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
This bright and sunny wooden studio is situated in a secluded and picturesque valley 1 mile from Bantham surfing beach in Devon.
It is perfect for those looking for:
- a cosy retreat for a romantic get away close to nature
- an action packed sea/surf adventure, with a great surfing beach less than 1 mile away
- a quiet sanctuary offering stillness and peace for a meditation/yoga retreat
The Studio is perfectly situated in a sunny, lightly forested valley which is a haven for birds and other wildlife. With beautiful country walks in every direction it is the perfect location for couples looking to explore the sandy beaches, picturesque villages of Bantham and Salcombe and the beautiful South Hams coastline and countryside. Its location couldn't be more peaceful and stunning and is a true haven for relaxation!
There are village shops and excellent pubs in Thurlestone (1.5m), Bantham (0.9m) and Churchstow (2m) and Kingsbridge (4m) offers a supermarket, banks, numerous shops, cafes, galleries, yoga studio and a regular farmers markets.
Surf rentals/ Kayaks/ SUPs can be rented from TRIOCEAN SURF in Churchstow (I highly recommend them!) or occasionally down on Bantham beach during the summer (beginner foam boards only).
Free parking for 2 cars.
It also includes a very friendly, rogue black and white cat that seems to have adopted the Studio as its new home.

The West Country region
The West Country / 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.
The Thurlestone / Bantham area
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 to Bigbury-on-Sea (golf) and Burgh Island. Hotel spa, restaurant and golf at Thurlestone, 2 miles; Kingsbridge, 4; Salcombe, 5.

Bantham has a large, unspoilt sandy beach with views to Burgh Island and Bigbury on sea. It is perfect for families, surfers, body boarders, kayaking and walkers. The South West coast path is accessed from the beach with walks to secluded coves, pretty villages such as Thurlestone, Modbury and Hope Cove and the vibrant yachting town of Salcombe. Dogs are permitted on the beach year round, but in the summer season are restricted to the Ham and the western end of the beach (large area of sand at low tide). RNLI lifeguards patrol throughout the summer, and there is a surfing school based at the beach. (See following link for Magic Seaweed surf update and webcam...http://magicseaweed.com/Bantham-Surf-Report/10/ ). The only other facilities are public toilets, but the village is a few minutes walk and has a shop, cafe and an excellent pub (The Sloop Inn). The cabin is within approximately half an hours drive of Dartmouth, Plymouth and the vast, rugged expanse of Dartmoor. The nearest town is the lovely Kingsbridge which has two supermarkets, a delightful High Street, Doctor's surgery/hospital, cinema and lots of excellent restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways.

"An absolutely delightful, peaceful studio."
When we arrived it was better than the photos showed. Down quite a steep hill which my little car found a struggle as only use to flat Essex. Bantham beach was gorgeous and we had a lovely walk along … More

From the moment we arrived at The Studio we loved it. This was booked as a birthday surprise to escape the city, chill out and maybe do a little surfing! The Studio is located in a picturesque setting… More

"Great little hideaway retreat."
A great little find. Lovely peaceful setting and quirky place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of life. Enjoyed breakfast sat outside in the beautiful surroundings. Superb location with bamforth beach just over a mile down the road with Salcombe and Kingsbridge a short drive away. Loved it that there is no TV or radio. A complete break from reality.
