Ash Park is 400 yards from East Prawle village. Nestled into a rocky hillside, it has 180 degree uninterrupted views over farmland and coastline to the sea and Prawle Point. It is the sunniest of south-facing houses, imaginatively designed, set in the most beautiful, 3 acre landscaped garden (gardeners happy to 'chat plants' to you as they work): pond (unnetted), lawns, winding paths and steps through the gardens and escarpment, huge rocks and trees, a kidney-shaped, outdoor heated swimming pool (fenced, 27' x 12' x 2'9" to 5'6" deep, available 27 May to 16 September), lots of hidden seating and patios, two west-facing terraces (furniture) and balustrade.
The house has huge picture windows, bringing the views and garden into the house. Sweeping drive to 6 wide steps up to a verandah (garden seat) and door into spacious, open hall, light streaming down over the staircase. Off the hall, large drawing room with gas fire and expansive picture windows with breathtaking views over the coast and sea. This room opens to south-west facing sunroom with door to balcony and pool.
Next door, dining room with mahogany dining table seating 10, big windows (views) and swing door into excellent, well-fitted, west-facing kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, Aga plus ceramic hob/double electric oven, fridge, tiled floor, granite worktop, TV, breakfast table/chairs). Glazed doors to terrace and swimming pool. Utility area with washing machine, tumble drier, freezer, fridge; boot room. Off the entrance hall, second sitting room with large fireplace (gas fire), TV/DVD and Xbox 360 and, opposite it, a twin bedroom with balcony (furniture), views over garden to sea, and shower-room (suite) across the hall.
Elegant stairs up to a large landing, off which three more excellent bedrooms – the master double (6' bed) with large en suite bathroom (suite); a second double (5' bed) with separate bathroom (suite with separate shower); and a large twin with large sofa bed, en suite shower-room (suite) and door to the previous bathroom.
Also, a newly refurbished garden room, accessed by steps from the kitchen and terrace by the pool, with a double and two single day beds (footboards) and en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath) with large south-facing French windows with stunning views of the gardens and sea. Games room in garage (table tennis, table football, skittles, darts). The magnificent gardens have interesting paths and steps which young children and people with limited mobility need to negotiate with care. Damages Deposit £500. Best for maximum of 12 adults, 2 children. An exceptionally positioned house with fabulous gardens and beautiful interior.

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.
East Prawle: village (pub, seasonal shop/good food café) a mile from the sea in the middle of an unspoilt peninsula (farmland, cliffs, coves, beaches). Superb scenery, cliff-birdwatching and walks - Coast Path to little sandy cove beaches (nearest 1 mile). East Portlemouth (small village, ferry to Salcombe), easy 3½ mile walk. Kingsbridge by road, 9 miles.
