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.


Halwell: small village (church, good food pub, filling station for basic supplies, bus route) in wooded farmland on the A381 between Totnes (town), 7 miles, and Kingsbridge, 6. Dartmouth (town) and the sea/beach at Blackpool Sands, 7 miles. Dartmouth Golf and Country Club (indoor pool), 3 miles; also, leisure park (activities, animals). Central South Hams base.

17 Nov 2012



We stayed at Swallows Reach for one week through the October half term - which was one of the best Half Terms we have had with our kids for a long time - we went with another family, and thoroughly enjoyed it - the house is out of this world, and even though it was October, we swam every day in the heated pool, which again was out of this world......very peaceful area - plenty to do in the surrounding area - would highly recommend this to all for a very reasonable weeks stay too the price was fantastic - £1000 for the week between 2 families - you cant go wrong!!!

Sounds like you had a great time! Thanks for leaving your kind comments which we'll pass on to the owner for you. Happy holiday = good for the soul :-) Best wishes Helpful Holidays
