    “The house itself was lovely and the views were amazing, but for the money we paid we did expect a 5* property and was disappointed with the cleanliness of the outside.”

    I had to clean the outdoor seating and table off as was covered in cobwebs and seagull poo. The glass that surrounds the terrace and the windows were dirty and covered in seagull poo. It could have done with a good clean. The pool was freezing when we got there and I did ring the local office and spoke to a young lady and was told I would get a call back but never did. Once it heated up it was lovely and we used it everyday as the weather was good. I did phone the office on Monday as we had ...

    I had to clean the outdoor seating and table off as was covered in cobwebs and seagull poo. The glass that surrounds the terrace and the windows were dirty and covered in seagull poo. It could have done with a good clean. The pool was freezing when we got there and I did ring the local office and spoke to a young lady and was told I would get a call back but never did. Once it heated up it was lovely and we used it everyday as the weather was good. I did phone the office on Monday as we had a problem with the oven. I spoke to a very nice person called Mike who was very helpful and maintenance came out with a couple hours. The trip switch kept going when the tumble dryer was on. We were also asked to not put any rubbish out until the night before we left but you can’t be expected to keep rubbish in doors all week. I also think that mattress and pillow protectors should be changed each week as we were asked to leave them on and when stripping the beds they were not very clean. Parking should be stated as two small parking spaces. The Green Dragon in the village is excellent and a 10 minute walk for an able bodied person but we had to use car as the walk is very steep.

The property

The Gulls is an exceptional detached property situated within the sought after Overseas Estate and enjoying one of the most breath-taking cliff top positions in Devon, offering an outstanding self-catering experience with uninterrupted coastal views that can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

The Gulls is a unique find for groups of families, friends, beachcombers, avid ramblers and those alike, seeking a place to call home as they enjoy the delights of the South Hams in Devon, with the added luxury of an outdoor heated infinity style Plunge pool offering you a 'spa' experience with swim and massage jets where the views continue to captivate.

Enter on the ground level before continuing into the L shaped sitting room, where the large windows affords a constant connection with the coastal setting and beyond, and the plush seating arrangement invites you to relax in front of the TV with the feature electric fire gently filling the room with warmth.

On this floor, there is also a quaint snug, where younger guests of the group can escape to, to enjoy an evening of games brought from home or where you could enjoy a moment’s peace to delve into a good book.

Take the staircase down to the lower ground floor, where a well-equipped kitchen awaits the budding chef of the group, boasting sleek units topped with steel work surfaces, creating ample preparation space and the accompanying bar stools are perfect for soaking up the views as dinner simmers on the Range hob.

Regroup within the dining room to relish in a home-cooked dish with the large picture window providing uninterrupted sea views of the spectacular coast, as you tuck in or toast to a wonderful holiday.

Once the sun has set over the coast, find two bedrooms on the ground floor, comprising of a double bedroom and a super-king-size bedroom (twin upon request), both of which are served by a family bathroom, boasting a spacious walk-in shower and a separate bath.

The master suite can be found on the first floor, elegantly dressed in contemporary furnishing and a refreshing colour palette, with the pièce de résistance being the jaw dropping view of the Devonshire coastline, which can be enjoyed from the plush Emperor size bed or the sumptuous L-shape sofa.

Completing the interior is the twin bedroom and the first-floor shower room, which also serves the master suite.

Continuing to impress is the exterior, where the garden has been designed to be an extension of the house itself, making a wonderful spot for enjoying the company of family and friends.

Step out onto the terrace and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining or take a dip into the swimming pool to further enjoy the vistas of the stunning coast.

If you can tear yourself away from this heavenly retreat, stroll into the centre of Stoke Fleming, where you will find a pub, a restaurant and a Post Office with a shop, making this the perfect touring base for exploring beyond.

Just a short 10 minute walk away is the award-winning shingle beach at Blackpool Sands, where you can laze on the glorious sands or try your hand at one of the many watersports of offer.

Don your walking boots to explore the coastline further with the magnificent South West Coast Path passing in either direction or choose to follow the Dart Valley Trail to enjoy both the coast and countryside of the South Hams region of Devon.

Just stone’s throw away is the bustling town of Dartmouth, where you will find even more amenities, as well as a 14th century castle with views over the River Dart Estuary and Bayard's Cove Fort, as well as museums and art galleries to meander.

Alternatively, explore further afield towards Paignton and Torquay to find more family-friend attractions, or make some time to visit Salcombe on the Kingsbridge Estuary, where you will find more glorious beaches and the National Trust property of Overbeck’s.

Secure your stay at The Gulls and prepare for a wonderful holiday with your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
