We have been staying here once or twice a year since 2010. The views are stunning and the veranda is great for family gatherings. Once again we were lucky with the weather, sunshine all week! We discovered this wonderful part of the world first in 1967, when we stayed in the Coastguard cottages on the point. Since then we have stayed in several cottages in and around Prawle, year in year out, until we discovered Sharpers, which has become our favourite. This was the 50th anniversary of our 1st visit to Prawle with 41 of the family staying in several cottages in the village. We love the fact that the area has barely changed in all that time and all enjoy the walks along the coastal path and evenings in the Pigs Nose Inn. Looking forward to returning to Sharpers in Sept 17 and hopefully for many more years to come. Thanks Felicity for letting us share this lovely home.

The accommodation was very clean and well presented. The view from the rear bedroom, lounge and patio area is worth the rental fee alone, you can just sit there all day and watch the coming's and going's on Whitestrand Quay and the estuary. All in all, just a great place to spend your holidays.
