South Devon’s Mediterranean style climate means that the sea is clean and calm, and there are plenty of water sports such as surfing and canoeing to try out. Slapton Sands, which is within walking distance of the property, via steps, is a beach where families and friends can enjoy great holidays, offering a beautiful three mile long shingle beach for you to enjoy. If you get peckish, there’s a beachside cafe serving drinks and light refreshments. If you want to bring the dog, you’ll be pleased to hear that Slapton Sands beach and many in the area welcome dogs all year round. This particular stretch of coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a great destination at any time of the year.
