Find this rustic beach hut a 15-minute walk from your car, down a steep path to your own private beach – the incredible sea views alone make it worthwhile. The brave will want to dip in the bracing sea and warm straight back up in the wood-fired hot tub. Evenings are for cooking dinner on the barbecue and gazing out at the stunning South Devon coast – all you’ll hear is the crackle of flames and the waves crashing against the rocks; or snuggle around the wood-burner on cooler evenings (don’t expect phone signal or internet here). This is a perfect spot for couples (no dogs or children allowed). Climb up to your comfortable bed after a long day of relaxing and find a breakfast hamper for the next morning with all the basics. Order ahead if you want to arrive to a simple evening meal hamper and wine. Head out to find the coast path and more beaches.
