    “I do not feel that you provided clear information regarding this property.”


    There was no prior disclosure of the existence of 43 steps leading from the parking area level to the entrance of the property.Offloading and reloading of our car with our luggage,clothing,food,etc was a real difficulty.Real. Also there was no mention of the fact that access roads to Hallsands,particularly over the last mile of road access,was very limited.A single lane width roadway exists over this last mile and was problematic to us on more than one occasion.Furthermore this very narrow,unlit,stretch of road prevents people enjoying any relaxation in the local pubs or restaurants.You cannot even take a chance by having more than one drink because of the nature of the roads that have to be driven.Social side of the holiday was spoilt by that. The isolated nature of the property location needs to be brought to peoples attention. I feel that these complaints are matters that require urgent attention and action.

    We apologise that you were not informed of the steps to the property and have added this information to the property description, thank you for bringing this to our attention. Unfortunately, the narrow roads to access small fishing villages such as Hallsands come with the nature of this type of coastal area. We are sorry that were not happy with the property’s rural location; several of our returning guests choose to stay in fishing villages such as Hallsands because of the charm of its isolated location and unspoilt coastal beauty. Regardless of the location and type of road, we would never recommend drinking and driving, and are happy to recommend local taxi services to use. We hope that you enjoyed your holiday regardless of these points made and hope you visit South Devon again soon. Owner relations

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.
