**Please Note: the NEW HomeAway nightly pricing & tariff calculator displayed to the right, calculates nightly rates by taking the weekly tariff rate and dividing it by 7. This nightly rate is misrepresented, as it does not take into account Short Break Percentages explained in the Tariff Notes section below. Sadly we have no control over this new trend towards nightly 'hotel-style' pricing so please get in touch and we will be happy to help you further.**

A very comfortable and well appointed cottage with a lovely little garden and a great view of the sea beyond.A perfect place to relax, go for walks (along the coastal footpath which passes the end of the garden) and visit gems of beaches nearby.It's very quiet and all you hear at night is the sound of the sea.

From this fabulous holiday home, guests can’t help being fully bewitched by the coastal beauty on the doorstep and with the scenic South Coastal Path running straight past the bottom of the garden on National Trust owner land! The friendly nearby Pig’s Nose Inn with frequent musical entertainment is a real favourite to those who know of it. The Piglet Stores next door offer all the necessary groceries should you need to re-stock ~ both are just a 10-15 minute walk away. Walkers, bird watchers and families can all be sure of a memorable Devon holiday with lots to explore in the great outdoors!
The peaceful nearby coves, like the fine sandy beach at Maceley Cove give a real Mediterranean feel and are perfect for enjoying coastal picnics and family beach days during the summer months. The nearby sailing towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge provide a wide range of activities and attractions to enjoy; from water sports, horse riding and golf, to the fascinating National Trust properties of Overbeck’s, the enchanting Greenway home of Agatha Christie not to mention Coleton Fishacre with its luxuriant garden by the sea. Don’t miss the popular Steam Railway journey between Paignton & Kingswear or the numerous River Dart cruises in the bay.
Leave the car and catch the ferry from nearby East Portlemouth (4 miles away) which sails across to nearby Salcombe, car free and avoiding the narrow streets of Salcombe! With many cafés, restaurants & pubs plus lots of independent shops & boutiques to peruse, it’s a fun day out.
Have you ever wondered.... why not all lighthouses are the same colour, what they look like inside or why lighthouses are no longer manned? Well join in on one of the fascinating Start Point Lighthouse tours ~ really nothing beats the shear variety, beauty and charm of Devon!
