Roof level: There is a decked roof terrace with garden furniture on the roof, a real sun trap even on just a mild day, just the place to relax and read that book. A small garden with established planting is beyond.

Steps leading up to the garden behind the property are rather steep for very young children. They can be closed off by the side gate if required.

South Hams region: South Devon or the South Hams as it is known is surrounded by beautiful countryside with plenty to do and explore. The stunning coastline is some of the most beautiful in England

The location offers a climate which is unique to the UK. The very mild winters allow many sub-tropical plants to survive in the region.

Salcombe area: The Coastal Footpath has many interesting stretches but nowhere more magnificent than either side of Salcombe. Beyond North Sands (our nearest) beach and South Sands bay with dinghies for hire is the NT house Sharpitor with sub-tropical gardens. Further on is the magnificent Bolt Head and then to Bolberry down and the Port Light Hotel.

This modern family house looks down on the Salcombe estuary toward East-Portlemouth and the wonderful sandy beaches on the eastern side of the estuary. This shore can be reached by ferry from Salcombe. (10 min walk) You can walk to the sea from here and along the coastal footpath to Prawl Point.

Bigbury Island a short drive up the coast is a favorite spot to for wind and kite-surfers. There is also a celebrated walk around the Avon valley from here.

The South Hams has a feast of fine villages overflowing with fine scenery and taverns to suit all. Come and explore.
