    “This is a pleasant quiet apartment looking out on the sea at the front and on a quiet hillside sounding with bird-song at the back, well placed for walking on the superb tracks to Start Point, and points West.”

    It is comfortably furnished and well-equipped for cooking the excellent sea-food which can be obtained at Beesands. We had a most enjoyable stay. ...

    It is comfortably furnished and well-equipped for cooking the excellent sea-food which can be obtained at Beesands. We had a most enjoyable stay. It was a bit difficult to gain access, because the confusing electronic mechanism on the front door to the building does not work. Once you understand that a firm push is enough to open the door there is no problem. The apartment itself is secured with good locks. You will find the fridge turned off: the instructions for turning it on could be more conspicuously presented. These are trivial grouses.

About the location


Start Point 1.5 miles; Beesands 3 miles; East Portlemouth 5.5 miles; Kingsbridge 8 miles.

Hallsands is a small village near Start Point, one of the most southerly points on Devon’s coastline, near Salcombe in the beautiful South Hams area. The sheltered South Hams Peninsula is in 'deepest Devon', a pastoral landscape of flowering hedgerows and ancient sunken lanes, carved into by the richly wooded Avon and Dart Valleys. This quiet fishing village, with its dog-friendly, unspoilt beach, is situated next to the historic ‘old village’ of South Hallsands, just three miles from the popular Beesands Beach which has its own gastro pub and shop. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is decorated with white, pink and ochre thatched cottages, picturesque fishing ports such as Dartmouth, and is renowned for its stunning coastline, popular with yachting enthusiasts. Much of the clifftop land has been acquired by the National Trust, a haven for bird watchers and walkers who take advantage of the South West Coast Path, peppered with perfect picnic spots. Nearby, uncover the beauty of Blackpool Sands and Torcross, a historic site where the Normandy landings were practiced; explore the nature reserve at Slapton Ley, and stroll along Slapton Beach, feeling the soft sand between your toes. Park at East Portlemouth and catch the ferry across to the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe with its renowned estuary, or visit the Start Point Lighthouse, less than a mile away. Hallsands is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of Devon and the South Hams, all year round.

Heated Swimming pool, open from Whitsun week through to mid-September (Please note there is no fixed date for the pool to close and this will be weather dependant).

Due to Covid-19 restrictions the swimming pool may not be open during your stay.

Due to the close proximity to the cliff edge, children and dogs should be supervised at all times.
