New for 2013
A comfortably furnished and homely 18th Century cottage, presented and equipped to a high standard throughout. The extended accommodation links together two buildings to create a spacious bolt hole and base from which to explore the South Hams in general and the nearby Start Bay coastline in particular.

The village shop/post office is immediately opposite whilst the local pub (The Open Arms) is just a 100 yards away. Kingsbridge can be reached in 10 minutes or so by car whilst the famous naval town of Dartmouth is approximately 7 miles further along the stunning coastal road.
