The property

Tucked away in a charming residential cul-de-sac, a stone's throw away from the dramatic coastline of South Devon, rests this marvellous bungalow, 7, Old Rectory Gardens.

Perfectly positioned to explore the picturesque county of Devon, 7, Old Rectory Gardens offers a desirable base for all of the family to enjoy.

Park up on the private driveway and access the lovely dwelling via the level pathway that runs alongside the cottage, ideal for guests with limited mobility, passing through the well-maintained lawned garden and stepping into a welcoming hallway space at the front of the property, providing handy storage space to house your belongings away from the main living areas.

Continue through to the open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with a contemporary décor and framing breath-taking views across the treetops to the coast through the towering picture windows, inviting you to kick off your shoes and settle into an armchair to enjoy the sights with a refreshing cup of tea after an action-packed day.

The designated chef will be delighted by the adjoining kitchen, boasting stylish marble worktops and gleaming cupboards, housing all of the modern amenities required to prepare a heart-warming meal for the group to enjoy gathered around the dining table, indulging in some overdue quality time together.

As the day draws to a close, head off to bed in one of the three pleasant bedrooms, choosing between a spacious king-size or twin bedroom, both of which benefit from an en-suite shower room, or the snug twin room, where you can wake up to captivating views of the distant coastline.

Servicing the property is a modern family bathroom, where you can soak your muscles after a busy day exploring your surroundings, or if you prefer, make use of the overhead shower for a quick rinse.

Take a break from doing the cooking and head into the heart of Thurlestone to indulge in a homecooked meal at The Village Inn, nestled under the rustic canopy of beams retrieved from wrecked Spanish Armada ships.

Lace up your walking boots and join the South West Coast Path, trekking the picturesque coastline, surfaced roads, open moorland and paved footpaths to the delightful coastal village of Bantham.

Head further afield to the popular tourist spot of Salcombe to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the harbourside, taking in the scenic sights from the shore as the boats sail across the tranquil blue waters, or head off on an adventure and explore the ruins of Fort Charles, a Grade II listed building and ancient monument nestled on a rocky outcrop, just off the beach of North Sands.

Pack up your beach-going essentials and head to the seaside resort of Bigbury-on-Sea, where you can enjoy a rejuvenating dip in the water, explore the rock pools that decorate the sand or tackle the waves with a lesson at Discovery Surf School.

If you time it right, cross the sandy causeway to the iconic landmark of Burgh Island, accessible on foot at low tide, of if you'd prefer, travel to the island via the quirky sea tractor.

For your next getaway to the Devonshire coast, choose 7, Old Rectory Gardens.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
