The property

Abbots Ash is a detached Grade II listed cottage tucked away down country lanes five miles from Bigbury -on-Sea.

Originating in the 15th century and later owned by Nelson’s family, it combines traditional beams and features with wonderfully contemporary and stylish comfort and chic.

As soon as you head up the steps and into the hall, you will feel right at home, especially when you turn into the vast lofty open plan living area which stretches the length of the cottage.

Snug within lime washed walls, it offers a comfy seating area beside the cosy wood burning stove, a study area with desk and French windows to open to the garden on a sunny day.

At the other end is the excellent kitchen and dining area, all beautifully equipped and a sociable space with breakfast bar.

On this ground level are the three calming bedrooms.

Take the stairs up to another amazing reception area, a sitting room with another wood burning stove and more comfy seating.

Behind the cottage is a charming enclosed garden with lawn and a prettily planted suntrap courtyard with seating area.

Despite its peaceful location, this cottage is in a central location for an assortment of brilliant sand and surf beaches on a spectacular coastline where you can go rock pooling, surfing, walk the Coast Path and play golf.

If you want to eat out, the nearby village of Aveton Gifford has a pub, or you can head to Kingsbridge town for a choice of shops and restaurants.

Abbots Ash is truly an exceptional holiday destination in the heart of the stunning South Hams.

About the location


Modbury 6 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

Bigbury-on-Sea is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideal for family holidays. Dusted with sand and lapped by shallow waters, the beach offers safe fun for groups particularly if you’ve got children in tow. In addition, Bigbury-on-Sea beach is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of entertainment for budding marine biologists. There’s also a wide and varied selection of watersports available to visitors who prefer their holidays to feature a little adrenaline rush. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are popular here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. To give you some peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury-on-Sea beach during May to September and the beach also has a first-aid room. You can even take the dog onto the beach, although they are restricted to certain areas during the summer. Bigbury’s most famous landmark is Burgh Island, which overlooks the beach itself. The island is accessible at low tide, when the waters reveal a causeway that links it to the beach. However, when the tide is in you can still reach the island by hitching a ride on the popular and unique ‘sea tractor’. Burgh Island boasts an award-winning hotel, elegant and rather genteel, it’s an ideal romantic retreat for couples. Explore the South Devon coast with its fabulous sandy beaches and its breathtakingly beautiful coastal path or simply take time to visit some of the charming estuary towns and villages dotted throughout the area, such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. The city of Plymouth and the wild open spaces of Dartmoor are also both close at hand.
