Swimming, surfing, sun bathing – whatever your preferred beach pursuit, South Devon is the perfect place for a relaxing break on the coast. Coast & Country Cottages have a fabulous choice of beachside accommodation, ranging from elegant country houses within two minutes walk of the seaside to stunning waterside apartments, with beautiful ocean views.

Thurlestone Sands is just one of the countless unspoilt beaches in the South Hams, the southernmost tip of Devon. In a quiet rural spot accessed via picturesque country lanes, sits this fabulous stretch of shingle. Popular with locals and visitors alike, this pet friendly beach is perfect for water sports such as surfing and kayaking. The waters are a delight to swim in, whilst the rock-pools make for a fun afternoon exploring with the children!

Coast & Country Cottages have properties at two developments, both of which are situated just yards from the beach. Ocean’s Edge is a fabulous collection of luxury apartments, many with breath taking views of the South Devon coastline. Guests can relax in the delightful heated kidney-shaped swimming pool and enjoy the use of good sized gardens that surround the development.
