Property code: TCOAS

Situated in a magical position overlooking the sea and just five minutes from a sandy, cliff-lined bay, this former coastguard cottage is an absolutely delightful coastal getaway for a group or family of eight.

Overlooking the sea, this former coastguard cottage occupies an enviable position in South Devon. It’s only a quarter of a mile from the sheltered, sandy bay of Bovisand, great for ball games and paddling. With four bedrooms, the property has enough space for eight guests and two dogs, making it ideal for family get-togethers or group getaways. It’s also a perfect spot for walking holidays along spectacular coastal paths with your four-legged friends. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy a comfortable break, whatever time of year you’re visiting – and whatever the weather. Its impressive facilities include a games room that teenagers will find particularly appealing as it’s equipped with a games console and TV with sports and movie channels. There’ll be no excuses for boredom here!

 

 

Approached via a long private road, the property’s location offers peace and seclusion without feeling cut off. Steps lead up to the cottage, which is homely in appearance, with plush, comfortable furnishings and seascapes adorning the walls. Perch on the window seat to gaze out to sea, read a book beside the wood burner or dim the lights to watch an action movie. The wood burner is double sided, so it heats the kitchen as well as the lounge, perfect for snug winters at the breakfast bar or tucking into a celebratory dinner round the dining table. In the morning, wake to sea views and pour yourself a fresh coffee from the Nespresso machine to get your day off to the best possible start. On warm afternoons, relax on the patio and large tiered garden area as the sun glistens on the water across the bay and boats sail past from Plymouth Sound. Keep refreshed with cooling drinks from the wine fridge.

The beach at Bovisand is situated alongside the South West Coast Path, which offers a scenic walk all the way to Plymouth, 5 miles away. If you don’t fancy going all that way on foot, travel by bus or car. No trip to this lively city is complete without a visit to Plymouth Hoe, with its iconic red and white lighthouse and art deco lido. For evenings out, there’s The Barbican, Theatre Royal and local cinemas. Dartmoor National Park, 11 miles from the property, is not to be missed either, with its brooding scenery and unique wildlife, including the famous Dartmoor Ponies. On the fringes of the park lies Buckfast Abbey (23 miles), home to a community of Benedictine monks and sensory garden.

. Exceptionally clean, well equipped and finished to a high standard. Lovely garden space (not dog secure) and direct access to the coastal path. Only recommendation is that supermarkets are not close by so take supplies with you when you arrive. We would have no hesitation in re booking in the future.

We have stayed all over the UK and this is our favourite ever. If I could I would buy this property over any other to live out my days. it is simply stunning. We spent hours watching the ever changing view. Ships, boats, boards, birds could be seen and the sunset meant we did not watch many of the TVs. Even bad weather is a delight in this cottage.Read more The only negative is the steps, at the cottage and down to the wonderful beach. However the hight is what gives the view, hope to be back.
