  • “Whilst the apartment is in a wonderful location overlooking the sea and superb views, there are a few things within it that could be improved.”

    It requires some further maintenance and is rather small for four adults as the second bedroom is small and there is no space to hang your clothes. A small chest of drawers is present but not adequate for two adults. There was also a broken and rusty barbecue left on the veranda. In the main bedroom, the television is not working and we had problems opening and closing the balcony door. ...

    It requires some further maintenance and is rather small for four adults as the second bedroom is small and there is no space to hang your clothes. A small chest of drawers is present but not adequate for two adults. There was also a broken and rusty barbecue left on the veranda. In the main bedroom, the television is not working and we had problems opening and closing the balcony door. The kitchen had all the appropriate facilities for cooking etc. but one of the cupboard doors was sticking when you opened it as the framework had become detached. There were no problems with the lounge and the two bathrooms. When we booked I made it clear that we had a baby with us yet there was no cot. Not sure where you would have placed the cot in the two bedrooms anyway due to the confined space so thankfully we had a travel cot. We also had problems getting into the apartment and one of your customer service operators was not particularly helpful but it was resolved with another call when we discovered that there was a fault with the door that meant it took some force to open it. Finally for two adults or a family with two children, the apartment is fine however I believe you should make this clear when it is being booked that it is not suitably for four adults.

About the location

HALLSANDS

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.
