    “We spent Christmas in Rectory Gardens whilst visiting family locally and found the property really thoughtfully renovated and equipped.”

    Six adults stayed for 5 nights and the bungalow felt spacious, with a really well equipped kitchen. Would recommend…

The property

Resting in a quiet cul-de-sac in the picturesque coastal village of Thurlestone, is this contemporary single-storey holiday home, 7, Old Rectory Gardens.

Nestled within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 7, Old Rectory Gardens offers an idyllic base for an unforgettable group retreat to Devon.

A private driveway greets you upon arrival to the lovely dwelling, leading you through the well-maintained communal garden along a level pathway to the threshold of the property, ideal for guests with limited mobility.

Stepping inside, dust off your sandy toes as you enter into the spacious hallway at the front of the property, providing handy storage space to house your beach-going essentials away from the main living areas.

Continue through to the open-plan living space, beautifully-decorated with a neutral colouring and featuring a delightful contemporary décor, inviting you to put your feet up with a cup of tea on the sumptuous sofa as you soak in the views across the treetops..

Neighbouring the sociable space is a modern kitchen, beautifully-appointed with marble worktops and gleaming cupboards, fit with all the amenities required to rustle up some tasty treats to enjoy gathered around the dining table with your loved ones.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between three thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, a king-size and twin room, both benefiting from their own en-suite walk-in shower, and a light and airy twin room, boasting panoramic views across the encompassing greenery down to the sea.

Servicing the bedrooms is a contemporary family bathroom, fit with a bath with overhead shower, giving guests the choice between a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles in the tub or a quick morning rinse.

If you don't fancy doing the cooking, take the short stroll into the centre of Thurlestone for a delicious meal at the local pub, The Village Inn, serving a variety of dishes to cater for all tastes in a cosy and traditional setting.

Outdoor adventurers will be delighted with the South West Coast Path that passes through the village, traversing varying landscapes of rugged coastline, open moorland and paved footpaths to the nearby villages of Bantham (East) and Hope Cove (West).

Venture further afield to the popular resort of Salcombe, where you can soak in the breath-taking views across the picturesque harbour from one of the many quaint eateries that overlook the waterfront, or if that's not your thing, explore the ruins of the Grade II listed building and ancient monument, Fort Charles, nestled on a rocky outcrop just off the beach of North Sands.

Spend a fun-filled day at the beach with a visit to the coastal resort of Bigbury-on-Sea, where thrill-seekers can tackle the waves with a lesson at Discovery Surf School, and if you time it right, you can cross the sandy causeway at low tide to the iconic landmark of Burgh Island, boarding the quirky sea tractor on your return.

With all of this and more on your doorstep, choose 7, Old Rectory Gardens for your next stay in Devon.
