The property

The Reach at 2 The Coach House is in an elevated position overlooking the village of Hallsands and its shingle beach - The Reach enjoys an amazing panorama of the South Hams coast line from its cliff top position making it a perfect destination for a romantic week away or the perfect vantage point in which to walk the South Coast Path which runs past the cottage. A series of 43 stone steps lead from the allocated parking area up to the front gate – where a pair of French doors open directly into the light and airy open-plan living area. The Reach has a cosy, contemporary feel to its open plan living area, with its well equipped galley-style kitchen you have all you could want to rustle up a delicious treat to relax the day away enjoying the view. Upstairs you’ll find The Reach’s airy bedroom with a double bed, stunning sea views and an adjacent shower room. Out the front of The Reach is a large stone terrace where alfresco dinning can be enjoyed by all who stay. Exploring the Devon lanes nearby you’ll find many quaint fishing villages dotted along Start Bay with plenty of options of cafés, shops and pubs.

The walk up over the hill to Beesands is a must, where you will find holiday treats such as fish and chips from Britannia @ The Beach, The Cricket Inn and a cafe.

Spoilt for choice in every direction with the Millbrook Inn set in the charming village of South Pool and the Pigs Nose nestled on the green at East Prawle.

Two more gems to be found during your stay.

With the South West Coast Path running right past the property, and the nearby sweeping beaches, you’ll never be short of things to do. A journey inland could lead you towards the Dartmoor National Park, a landscape abundant in opportunities for lovers of the countryside. The Reach is perfect for those looking to experience all that the Devonshire coast has to offer.

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.
