This ‘upside down’ mews house is one of two attached to Prospect House, an award-winning development of 16 holiday homes converted from an historic hotel on the cliffs above Hallsands.
With amazing sea views and masses of space and sunshine, this is wonderful and memorable accommodation for older families and couples.
From the hall, head upstairs to the open plan living space, all comfortable and beautifully equipped and with three doors to throw open to full-height balustrades on a fine day.
You will find the three comfortable bedrooms downstairs, two with doors leading to a balcony.
Outside, the open communal space to front and rear is charming, with a shared seasonal outdoor swimming pool and a tennis court.
The enclosed terrace which faces the sea has an enclosed sitting-out area with table and chairs for each of these two mews cottages.
At the back, you can relax in the gated garden above the pool.
Wander down to the viewing platform which poignantly illustrates how the original village of Hallsands was reduced to rubble by the waves on a stormy night in 1917.
From here, you can head in either direction along the spectacular South West Coast Path to the shingle beach or to the little seaside village of Beesands with its amazing fresh fish and chips café and the excellent pub where Mick Jagger incongruously gave his first public performance as a teenager.
For fans of retail treats, the little streets of Salcombe and Kingsbridge offer boutique shops where you can browse for hours.
2 Ella Mews is a unique and stunning destination on a dramatic and beautiful stretch of the South Hams coast.
Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
About the location
Start Point 1.5 miles; Beesands 3 miles; East Portlemouth 5.5 miles; Kingsbridge 8 miles.
Hallsands is a small village near Start Point, one of the most southerly points on Devon’s coastline, near Salcombe in the beautiful South Hams area. The sheltered South Hams Peninsula is in 'deepest Devon', a pastoral landscape of flowering hedgerows and ancient sunken lanes, carved into by the richly wooded Avon and Dart Valleys. This quiet fishing village, with its dog-friendly, unspoilt beach, is situated next to the historic ‘old village’ of South Hallsands, just three miles from the popular Beesands Beach which has its own gastro pub and shop. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is decorated with white, pink and ochre thatched cottages, picturesque fishing ports such as Dartmouth, and is renowned for its stunning coastline, popular with yachting enthusiasts. Much of the clifftop land has been acquired by the National Trust, a haven for bird watchers and walkers who take advantage of the South West Coast Path, peppered with perfect picnic spots. Nearby, uncover the beauty of Blackpool Sands and Torcross, a historic site where the Normandy landings were practiced; explore the nature reserve at Slapton Ley, and stroll along Slapton Beach, feeling the soft sand between your toes. Park at East Portlemouth and catch the ferry across to the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe with its renowned estuary, or visit the Start Point Lighthouse, less than a mile away. Hallsands is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of Devon and the South Hams, all year round.
