Nice cottage, well furnished in a great location. only negative was the kitchen area, a microwave has been provided ( not mentioned in the brochure) but it takes the only available workspace. Also be aware there is no longer a dishwasher, so take washing up liquid! The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great!

Location Location Location this property has it in spades BUT The rug was filthy One light in the lounge didn't work just kept flashing. The toaster was so small it couldn't toast a whole slice of bread The water didn't drain away in the shower for ages. The Inside of the window frames were covered in fly Dirt (I just had to wash these ). What was the use of a full size dishwasher with in adequate crockery. What no microwave essential for a self catering holiday. Sorry but not for us again

Really lovely location and fantastic views from property. You have to be fairly fit to stay here as quite a few steps up to The Reach and no facilities at Hallsands. Lovely walks to Beesands about a mile and a half which has a nice pub,the Cricket Inn (great food) and to Start Point and beyond. Property has everything you need and is modern and clean. A couple of things need sorting ,very creaky floorboard on the landing into bedroom and mat in lounge is a bit hairy as the place is dog friendly . Had a great time though and would stay again.

Excellent place to stay. As its dog friendly place and a request to make sure dogs are clean before they enter the property an outside tap you make this much easier. Otherwise a lovely place to stay.

Hallsands has a small beach of deep shingle, no shop or pub/café. The lanes to this bay are narrow (one car width) and winding with grass growing in the middle - not for the faint-hearted! Cottage is at the top of a flight of 43 steps that make up the South Devon Coastal Path which runs past the garden so plenty of passers-by. We managed to park outside the garden fence to unload our luggage over the fence before parking down by the beach. The cottage was one of the most comfortable that we've stayed in-bed and settee were very comfy. The kitchen and bathroom were modern. It was very warm and, although we were there in October, we didn't need the heating on. If self-catering, there is not too much cupboard space or worktop space for storing or preparing food but we managed. There is a dishwasher but there is advice in the owners information file not to use it-we would have preferred the extra cupboard space. There is no mobile phone signal at the cottage and limited programmes on the television. There is also no rubbish collection so you have to take your rubbish and recycling with you. The coastal path is right outside the gate so plenty of walks from the bay in either direction. The cottage is dog-friendly downstairs and there is a convenient boot tray just inside the door for muddy and wet wellies and boots. The whole area is very dog-friendly and there are plenty of dog-friendly pubs and cafes in the neighbouring bays and further afield. We took ours on the Park and Ride in Dartmouth, across the river on the ferry and on the Dartmouth to Paignton steam train. The Cricket Inn in the next bay Beesands is excellent and also dog friendly. There are dire warnings about what will happen if you leave any dog hairs in the sitting area and the hoover is not brilliant so it may help to take something with you that will remove dog hairs from the rug as the hoover was definitely not fit for purpose in that area. All in all, if you don't mind the narrow lanes and 43 steps, this cottage is warm and comfortable and very well-placed for walkers and beachcombers.

Clean, warm and cosy. I had problems operating the ceramic hob and not a great fan of overhead showers but all in all a very pleasant stay.

The setting and the accommodation were wonderful. The bed was really comfortable, the facilities were top-notch; heating, hot water, cooking etc. The weather was glorious and we enjoyed visits to Dartmoor, Dartmouth, Salcombe and many of the smaller villages, finding new delights at the end of every, admittedly narrow, country lane! The visits to The Cricket Inn at Beesands were a gourmet holiday in themselves! Vanessa, our contact, was extremely helpful, and we would have no reservations about returning to this address.

Excellent location however a washing machine in place of a dish washer would be a bonus especially as there is only a small amount of crockery etc to use!
