Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Walking is the best way to enjoy the beauty of the South Hams. The South West Coastal Path is easily accessible from Ringmore holiday cottages and offers walkers stunning views of the Devon coastline. Visitors can also enjoy walks around Ringmore Parish itself. Four parish trails were recently marked with new boundary stones and range from two to five miles long.

-Beaches: Ringmore is located near to one of the best beaches in Devon. Bigbury-on-Sea Beach is less than two miles from the centre of Ringmore and has been awarded Blue Flag status. The beach is characterised by soft, golden sands and shallow waves, making it perfect for families. Accompanied by tidal rock pools filled with marine life, and beautiful Burgh Island, which is accessible on foot during low tide, there are few better places to spend a sunny summer afternoon.

-Watersports: Bodyboarding, surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are all possible on Bigbury-on-Sea Beach. Equipment rental facilities and lessons are available to visitors throughout the summer months, and lifeguards are on hand from May to September. Holidaymakers are also welcome to bring their dogs to the beach.

-Golf: The South Hams are well suited for golfing and holidaymakers staying in a Ringmore holiday cottage are less than two miles from two stunning courses. Bigbury Golf Club and Thurlestone Golf Club both offer 18-hole courses with amazing water views. Visitors are welcome at both courses for reasonable green fees. Golfers may also like to consider holiday rentals in Thurlestone.

-Family attractions: A Ringmore holiday home is an excellent choice for families with children. In addition to all the fun activities on the beach, parents can take little ones on a steam train ride from nearby Buckfastleigh or head to Pennywell Farm and Wildlife Centre to interact with adorable farm animals.

We found the house impeccably clean and it had everything we could possibly want. The kitchen is very well equipped; the outside area superb (definitely recommend sitting out there for breakfast!); the beds are very comfortable (loved the lighthouse lamp in the second bedroom) and we loved the layout of the open hallway upstairs. The owners are very thoughtful and even left a bottle of wine for us upon arrival. Loved sitting in the rocking chair by the window, gazing out at the lovely view and enjoying the peace and quiet. The location is great too - very convenient for Bantham beach and also Kingsbridge and (my favourite) Salcombe. I would not hesitate to recommend this barn as a great place to stay in Devon. Many thanks to the owners for making our stay so special.

It's perfect for a base from which to walk down to the beach, a great local pub and shop..and along the coastal path. Bigbury on sea is on the other side of the estuary, where you can walk at low tide over to Burgh island or venture further afield to explore more of beautiful Devon. It's a long way from Yorkshire.. but we hope to be back before too long..!
