  • "Very well equipped cottage perfectly located for South Devon costal walks and seaside."

  • "Charming little cottage and very comfy!"

    Really had a fun week here with lots of beautiful coastal walks nearby, as long as you like hills! The village shop was open when we stayed (early October), but would recommend that you bring all your food with you, as it is well out of the way, which is what we wanted.

  • "A lovely cottage in a friendly village and a great location."

    The kitchen is well-equipped, and we valued the bottle of wine waiting for us as a welcome. Its not ideal for tall people, with one low doorway, an ordinary double and very low easy chairs. But the internet is good, and there's a good read garden where you eat out at a bench and watch the cows opposite grazing.

    So that says it all. Home from home. I will be back.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage with all the amenities that we could need."

    Beautiful garden! We mislaid the key safe number on our departure and sent an e-mail to Sykes asking for it and as yet, (3 days later) we are still awaiting a reply! Luckily we found it just as we were leaving which avoided putting the keys through the letterbox.

    We are glad to hear you enjoyed the cottage and garden. Unfortunately we never received an email. We aim to respond in a timely manner where possible. We do always advise to call in these instances. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage and very well equipped."

    Comfortable inside, with a beautiful enclosed garden outside. It has steep stairs so not ideal for anyone with mobility problems but it is a very old cottage and they are part of its charm. Well situated close to the village centre, but quiet.

  • "Delightful, homely cottage in a beautiful village."

    Vine cottage was well equipped clean and comfortable. The village is friendly and welcoming. The walks and beaches are outstanding.

  • "I stayed at Vine Cottage for a fortnight and it was a real home from home."

    It was quiet, cosy and comfortable and the garden was a lovely place to relax on sunny days. East Prawle is in a great location for walking. The coast path is only a mile away, and there’s some great dog friendly beaches to explore within walking distance. I only really needed to use the car to go to the farm shop for supplies. Be warned though - wherever you walk to there is a very big hill to climb up to get back to the village! There’s a great little cafe in the village for coffees and ice creams and the village shop has the essentials if you run out of something. I would take groceries with you or get a delivery soon after you arrive as the nearest supermarket is in Kingsbridge which isn’t far but takes a while on single track lanes. I loved the cottage and the location and would definitely go back.

  • "Lovely cottage, very well equipped and well placed for coastal walks."

    A short drive to foot ferry for Salcombe, 20 mins drive to Kingsbridge, 40 mins Salcombe. We appreciated the well fenced garden for our dog and the off road parking too. In summer you could abandon the car and walk 45 mins to an hour to a selection of lovely beaches for the day too.

  • "Beautiful cottage, very tidy and well presented in the heart of East Prawle and a short walk to the local amenities and spectacular walks."

    Nice sized garden to sit out in and benefits from own parking bay. Arrival presented no difficulties and very easy to settle in. Recommended.

  • "The cottage was lovely and the facilities provided in it were probably the best we have ever experienced."

    It was lovely and quiet and out of the way. It is an ideal place as a base for coast walkers. As with everywhere at the moment, the COVID restrictions meant limited access to the pub and village store, but there is nothing anyone can do about that at the moment. The one drawback for us (70 years of age) was the drive down the narrow roads/lanes from the nearest town of Kingsbridge, and negotiating with other vehicles, some of which drove far too fast for the conditions, but I suppose the locals know the route. Not good for someone who is slower behind the wheel of a car. We had to leave early on account of my health (I am a recovering cancer patient), which was a pity.

  • "The cottage was very well stocked and had all the appliances and equipment needed."

    It was warm and cosy and light and airy. The garden is gorgeous and the setting is excellent for the South West Coast path and the South Hams area generally. We love East Prawle and this is a great place to stay for 2 or 3 people. Thank you

    We loved the garden and East Prawle was such a great village to base ourselves in with loads of great beaches nearby. The house had everything we needed and lovely to be in an old thatched cottage.

  • "Vine Cottage, East Prawle is utterly delightful in every way."

    In the age of continuous feedback and requests for such I'm seemingly bombarded with organisations asking for me to rate them, their products and services. In this case I'm happy to tell you that this cottage exceeded my expectations, no small accomplishment. Perhaps because the owners 'live' in the property on occasion, possibly as they are extremely thoughtful, in all aspects you find what you need. For example, all of the knives are sharp, the sofa and chairs can be sat on comfortably, the garden can be enjoyably sat in, the great pub is just 2 minutes walk away but not so near noise is an issue, a fabulous walk (Prawle Point) is on your doorstep and does not require you to get into your car. My wife and I, with our dog, had the most wonderful holiday, helped in no small part by fabulous late summer weather, in South Devon. A beautiful part of the world, and a lovely cottage. Lovely.

    The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything you need including maps, information about the area, games,books, videos and even folding chairs for you to take out with you so you can sit in comfort with your picnics.

    It was very clean and pretty. The only downside was that we didn’t realise how remote it would be and we had to travel many miles to get anywhere. Aoart from that we couldn’t fault it.

The property

This Grade II listed, 300-year-old thatched cottage is situated in a row of four in East Prawle.

With a cosy atmosphere and plenty of character, this is welcoming accommodation in a lovely area.

Head through the front door and leave your coats and boots in the porch, then on into the snug sitting room with its traditional beams and warming electric fire.

The kitchen is a true country-style room where you can enjoy family meals around the table.

Steep old stairs take you up to the bedrooms where you can even catch a glimpse of the sea from the window of the double.

The lawn garden is peacefully located behind the cottage with a picnic table for alfresco meals, and there is a little paved area to the front, shared with the neighbour.

It's just a short stroll out to the excellent village inn for a refreshing drink or tasty supper.

Throughout the season the village is also serviced by a local shop with a good cafe (variable opening times) and the old market town of Kingsbridge provides a range of eateries and various shops too.

If shopping appeals, catch the ferry across to Salcombe from East Portlemouth and you will discover tempting boutiques beside the waterfront.

The coastline around East Prawle is stunning, with beautiful beaches and coves to explore and the Coast Path to walk and admire cliff top views and sightings of a variety of birds.

Set in this fabulous location, Vine Cottage is a charming destination.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

East Prawle is a small village near Prawle Point, the most southerly tip of Devon near Salcombe, in the beautiful South Hams area. East Prawle has a charming, traditional village pub overlooking the green, a useful shop, and is renowned for its stunning coastline, popular with yachting enthusiasts. 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 Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is decorated with white, pink and ochre thatched cottages, picturesque fishing ports such as Dartmouth, and the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe. Much of the cliff top land has been acquired by the National Trust and is peppered with perfect picnic spots, a walker’s paradise. East Prawle is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of Devon and the South Hams, all year round.

Note: Arrival after 4pm.
