The nearby villages of Bigbury, Bantham and Salcombe offer a readily available selection of watersports including surfing, paddle boarding and kayaking.

The grade II listed fireplace with a wood burning stove takes centre stage. The stove and electric night storage heaters ensure the cottage is a cosy retreat to nestle up in after a long day out and about exploring all the great outdoors has to offer. The kitchen resembles a ship galley - it is a small but a well-equipped space with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and washer dryer. You to cook fantastic meals from fresh local ingredients brought at one of the many farm shops or in the nearby market towns of Modbury, Kingsbridge or Salcombe. Heading upstairs the cottage has a double bedroom and two single rooms.
