An end of terrace, stone-walled little cottage dating from the 1700s and slap bang on the village road is your base for everything Devonian: cream teas (jam on top of course), wonderful beaches, cycling and walking inland or at the coast, some great National Trust houses and gardens to visit and estuary sailing or paddling.
When you’re not exploring you’ll feel comfortable indoors by the wood-burner on chilly days or cooking in the pretty kitchen – you’ll find basics for cooking in the cupboards, a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge and some logs to get you started; take a book to the reading nook at the bottom of the stairs. In summer you’ll spill out into the little garden for al fresco suppers and a barbecue.
There’s a pub a few yards away and more in Kingsbridge, a 15-minute drive – you can moor a boat here too. Two farm shops (Springfield and Stokeley) are less than 10 minutes away for stocking up the fridge.
