    Beautiful Cottage Near the sea - West Buckland, Bantham, Devon

    Cottage in Kingsbridge with kitchen and patio
    It is 0.5 of a mile from Bantham, famous for its unspoilt sandy beaches and popular pub. There's a large log fire; private garden and ample private parking in a large courtyard. Think relaxing walks; seaside; surfing; cycling and golf. Lonely Planet has rated Bantham Beach as the best beach in the UK and the 6th best beach in the whole of Europe. See link: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/travel-tips-and-articles/lonely-planets-best-beaches-in-europe-2015 Perfect for relaxing family holidays. Particularly well suited for exhausted parents with children who need entertaining, fresh air and activities. The cottage is light, calming and a great base after a day at the beach. On your doorstep are stunning rural walks, great eateries; Bantham beach, the sea air, surfing and all manner of other outdoor pursuits. The Sloop Inn is about 0.4 miles away and we often stroll down for an evening meal with the children. It's very family friendly. There's a famous golf course at Thurlestone which is only a mile or so away and wonderful old english pubs are dotted around the neighbouring villages. In the outbuilding we leave a collection of battered bicycles and old wetsuits which you are welcome to use. We also have a log-store which is well-stocked, and you can help yourself for the evening fire. We always leave a variety of books, board games and DVDs for any rainy day. Beach, seaside, surfing, country walks, cycling, pubs, local village shop (great coffee and croissants), gastrobus at Bantham (wonderful hot & cold food to eat at the beach). Further afield there's Kingsbridge for shopping (about 4 miles) and Salcombe (about 6 miles). A ferry runs between Kingsbridge and Salcombe which makes for a great day out. In the cottage, there are 4 bedrooms. Two doubles (both with Kingsize beds); one twin and one single. There are two bathrooms, a lawn to play on and a large courtyard for parking. The courtyard is private and not shared. It's an incredibly friendly community. You'll find it so welcoming. The local pub know just about everything that's worth knowing. The local marina at Bantham often hosts fun get togethers but the thing I most love is the sense of peace, tranquility and laughter that this stunning area of South Hams seems to generate. Getting around The nearest train station is at Ivybridge (about 13 miles away) with faster and more frequent services running from Totnes (about 16 miles away). There are fast, direct services from London to Plymouth (about 17 miles away). In reality though, it's much, much more practical to have a car. Other Things to Note The entrance to the courtyard is quite narrow (see photo). All saloons, convertibles, estate cars and most 4x4s will be absolutely fine. Those with very large 4x4s or massive people carriers will find entering and exiting the courtyard quite challenging though, so much better in an estate car.
    Guest accommodations at this cottage offer fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Accommodations offer separate living rooms. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

        Well Cottage

        Beautiful, artistically furnished, quiet & secluded cottage, set in a great area. Really well appointed and kind usage of wet suits, bikes, etc. Tight access into courtyard for a big car, but very private.

        5/5 Excellent

          Fabulous farmhouse

          We had a wonderful week staying at Huish house. The setting was absolutely idyllic, total peace and quiet but very close to stunning beaches and charming villages. Sue was extremely welcoming, offering help at the drop of a hat but not intrusive at all. The farmhouse was perfect for a large family gathering. It was extremely well equipped and felt completely like home. It was so difficult to leave, we just wanted to stay forever! Thanks Sue.

          4/5 Good
