It is a delightful self-catering holiday cottage, right on the edge of East Prawle on the beautiful South Devon coast between Salcombe and Dartmouth - ideal for beach holidays, walking holidays or bird enthusiasts. In Foss Cottage you can see the sea while lying in bed in the main bedrooms. There is a large front garden with flower beds and terraces for sunbathing and eating out. At the west side of the cottage is an orchard, also with lovely views and play space with trampoline, paths up through the rocks and hidden seats for sunbathing and reading..

The cottage has always been a family cottage with a happy feel and an individual style. The rooms are spacious and the furniture is comfortable and cottage style - good quality but not institutional. The walls are covered with pictures. The sitting room is large and bright and has a lovely open fire with night storage & electric heaters for backup. The bookshelves

The cottage has always been a family cottage with a happy feel and an individual style. The rooms are spacious and the furniture is comfortable and cottage style - good quality but not institutional. The walls are covered with pictures. The sitting room is large and bright and has a lovely open fire with night storage & electric heaters for backup. The bookshelves are full of light reading. There is a panoramic view of the Channel. The kitchen is large and has a round table for family eating.

The cottage is an ideal rental for families who want a well-equipped self-catering option, sleeping 8+, (there are beds for 7 adults, 2 children, a spare single mattress and a cot, so if all guests are adults 8 would be optimum but up to 10 with children) but equally delightful for a couple or small group. Good for beach holidays (numerous beaches), walking (the West Coastal Path of South Devon), sailing and activities, and also winter breaks as there is good heating and a log fire.

There are 2 fridges, a freezer compartment, an electric stove and also a dishwasher, a washing machine and a tumble dryer. All rooms except the small childrens' bedroom also have a view of the sea. There are electric heaters in the bedrooms and heaters and open fire in the sitting room.

The two main bedrooms are double rooms - large, light and airy, facing the sea. There is a smaller back room with child size twin beds (no view) and another twin bedroom with a view facing west. There is a bathroom and a shower room, both have toilets. A lovely garden, terraces, orchard, table for eating out, and as we are at the end of the village, we are totally secluded and no one passes by.

There is a large garden with an orchard, with room for children to play and camp. Paths to seats above the house give wonderful views over the seascape. You can sit up there and read where no one can find you. Sometimes at spring half term lambs are born in the field in front. Big sailing boats, or once a Russian style submarine, and even the Royal yacht Britannia when it still existed, pass quite close in front. The sea and sky change constantly and there is always something to watch. There is a micro-climate at East Prawle and often the wind holds the clouds back over the land and we can have sun in Prawle on cloudy days.

The nearest beach, Horsley, is roughly 1/2 mile's walk away down a steep hill. There are many glorious beaches, some sandy, some rocky, some shingle, some accessible by car, all along the coast. You can take your pick and vary the beach you go to each day, if you like.

The area around East Prawle:

This is the South Hams area of Devon, the southernmost part of the county, cut off from much of the passing traffic. It is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, touching the Dartmoor national Park in the north and some of the most beautiful coastline in Britain in the south. It is ideal for walkers, being just above the Coastal Path – the national Trust Neptune path. There are excellent shops, good farm food and many holiday activities available in the area – including sailing or taking a motor boat out at Salcombe, from where you can also go mackerel fishing out at sea.

The village itself has a famous, popular pub - The Pig's Nose - a village shop in summer and a big green where children play and people can meet. East Prawle is famous for its Summer fair and other activities.
