Enjoy the winding Devonshire coast with holiday cottages in South Hams

South Hams is a large area in Devon which is comprised of a number of small villages. Stretching around the coast line from the edges of Plymouth and Brixham up to the border of Dartmoor National Park, it comprises a total area of 342 square miles. With a history dating back to Anglo-Saxon times and a strong naval feel, the area is a huge draw for visitors eager to sample the sea air, the many attractions and the walking environment on offer. There is also a large culture scene throughout South Hams and many food and drink festivals take place here throughout the year.

HomeAway has a vast number of holiday cottages in South Hams, which are spread throughout the whole area within easy access of amenities and attractions. Suitable for guest groups of all sizes from couples and small families to far larger groups of ten or more people, there is a wealth of choice on offer. Traditional cottages, seaside homes and rustic barns include inviting bedrooms and spacious open plan kitchens kitted out with dishwashers and laundry facilities. Many cottages have their own private gardens where the wonderful scenery of the Devonshire coast can be appreciated, and some of the more luxurious holiday homes even feature tennis courts and swimming pools. Children and pets are welcomed in certain cottages, whilst parking is available throughout.

South Hams is the ideal destination for people seeking a walking or coastal holiday with a cultural feel, however England has a great deal more to offer visitors. From holiday homes in Bournemouth, the delightful beaches and towns which make up the Dorset coastline can be enjoyed. Meanwhile, for visitors looking for a city break, choosing an apartment in the centre of London provides the ultimate experience of the English capital.

                                                                                                      My wife and I have just spent a week here and were delighted with our stay. The information provided in advance by the owner was comprehensive and detailed, probably the most thorough we have ever had and replies to my eMails were quick and positive. The apartment enjoys a superb and peaceful location and, being on a hill above the village, provides wonderful views of the bay and countryside (from the lounge) and Burgh Island and the rocky coast (from the bathroom). The large lounge has huge windows on 2 sides so is very light and, when sunny, warms up without the need for heating. In fact the whole apartment was comfortably warm and we didn’t need to switch the heating on before it came on automatically at 5.30pm. It then warmed up very quickly and retained that warmth all evening. The large, modern TV is very nice and the WiFi worked well with only an occasional signal drop. The kitchen is a good size with plenty of worktop space and all the equipment and utensils that one could possibly want. There is also a nice view of the bay so one has an interesting outlook while doing the washing up. The main bedroom is quite large with a comfortable bed and masses of wardrobe space. The other bedroom, however, is rather small. For a family of 4 the fact that there are 2 bathrooms would be useful. The property was clean and well maintained. The village centre is only 8 minutes away by road or even less if one takes the shortcut across the lawn and adjacent field. There one finds the village shop and Post Office and the Thurlestone Hotel and attached Village Inn. We had excellent, though expensive, meals at both. The surrounding area is very attractive and we enjoyed walking the coastal path in both directions. Hope Cove and Burgh Island are both worth a visit; at this time of year, when the little ferry across the Avon is not running, the island can be reached only by crossing the river some miles inland and then walking across the sand bar from Bigbury-on-Sea when the tide is out. In fact we did it as part of a very pleasant round walk starting from the National Trust car park at Ayrmer Cove near Ringmore. Kingsbridge, to which we went by bus, is a pleasant little town and we whiled away 2 interesting hours following the historical Town Trail. We then had an excellent lunch at the busy Mangetout café. Given the superb accommodation and the beautiful area, we would recommend this property without hesitation.

The accommodation was excellent - everything we needed - just like being at home. We have two boys aged 19 and 15 and the bunk beds were a good fit for them. It is dog friendly which is a real bonus. Lovely gesture to leave milk in fridge together with tea and coffee and also a welcome card. We met some of the bungalow owners who were very friendly and helpful especially when we needed advice on the best route to take to get to Teignmouth. Great walks to be had around the area. Would love to stay at The Palms again.
