New for 2013. Grove Cottage is a very cosy and comfortable holiday home within quick and easy reach of Bantham village and its superb sandy beach and surfing waters. The property is, in fact, two adjoining country cottages and a barn (hence the house sign reading 'Grove Cottages'!) that were integrated and subsequently refurbished by the current owners - the accommodation is well presented over two floors and is equally suited to families or couples looking for a traditional cottage holiday in a delightful coastal location.
LOCATION The cottage is in an idyllic location just a few yards from the hamlet of West Buckland and a mile or so from Bantham. The village has a popular pub/restaurant - The Sloop Inn- and a small store/cafe. The large, sandy beach is ideal for families and water sports enthusiasts and offers fantastic views across to Burgh Island. The South Devon coastal path leads up and across the cliffs to the nearby village of Thurlestone which boasts a 4-Star hotel (with Par 3 golf course, restaurant and pub), post office stores and challenging 18-hole links golf course. There are a number of other beaches nearby whilst the famous sailing waters of Salcombe are within a pleasant 15 minute drive.
VIEWS Lovely views front the front of the cottage across a country lane toward the garden and woodland beyond. To the rear the cottage enjoys views over neighbouring farmland and fields.
