  • "Access road to property is very poor."

    This definitely needs to be mentioned in description. Hedgerows over hanging which has resulted in so many scratches down both sides of car. This was the only downside to what was a enjoyable holiday in a lovely location.

    I’m very sorry that this is your lasting impression of your holiday. The lane leading to Hallsands is a public highway and as such is out of our control. The hedgerow is regularly cut by the farmer, but in the height of summer, grows prolifically. Whilst the narrow lanes of Devon can be frustrating, they also help to preserve the tranquility of the property. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful apartment in stunning location, in genuinely peaceful surroundings."

    The apartment is fairly small, but has everything you need and is very well organised and thought out, with quality furnishings and kitchen wear and very helpful hints and little touches from the owners, including a generous 'welcome pack' of goodies. Being seconds' walk from cliff top walks and the beach in such a remote location, felt a complete privilege, not to mention with free usage of the heated swimming pool and tennis court. Take binoculars to watch the seals on the rocks, roe deer on the hillside and stonechats in the bracken and peregrines in the skies.

  • "Had a lovely week staying here."

    The apartment was very clean and well presented, and very well equiped. The local scenery was exceptional, and we especially enjoyed sitting on the sheltered patio looking out at the countryside. We would recommend getting your food shopping in Kingsbridge on the way as although only a few miles away, it takes a while to get anywhere due to the narrow lanes. We enjoyed some fantastic coastal walks including the 25minute walk to The Cricket Inn at Beesands where the food was excellent. The owners were also very helpful, returning two items we left behind via Royal Mail, which is above and beyond expectations. We would hope to return some time - thank you!

  • "The apartment was incredibly clean and well presented."

    It’s as per description and perhaps slightly larger than we were expecting. Very homely in a great spot just back from hallsands beach. You absolutely need a car here and for nervous drivers, the country lanes can get narrow in and around hallsands and Devon. Otherwise, a lovely place to stay and has everything you need.

  • "It is a lovely apartment."

    The only real negative was the availability of hot water during the day or when we wanted it. One other minor point is that the beds are not really big enough for people over 6ft tall.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad to hear that you loved the apartment. With regard to the beds; they are respectively a standard double bed in one room and two small singles in the other, which can be zipped together, upon request, to create a kingsize. All beds are standard 6'3" length. Like most homes with a tanked water system, the hot water comes on in the morning and the evening, giving two large tanks of very hot water a day which is available between heating cycles. This has always proved sufficient before, but we will monitor other feedback. Once again sorry for any inconvenience and we hope to see you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Could you include information about the car parking."

    My wife is currently on crutches so I had to drop her at the gate before parking in the lower car park. This is an observation not a complaint! Apart from that we had a wonderful week in very comfortable accommodation. Thank you.

Be welcomed into the bright open plan living space featuring white oak flooring throughout and French doors to the private patio garden.

The seating area houses a sofa, chairs and coffee table, large TV with Freeview and Netflix, DVD player and Sonos soundbar.

The fully equipped kitchen has custom-made units and includes an electric oven with ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine/tumble dryer and a Nespresso machine for those who’d like to bring their own pods!

Your private patio garden planted with lavender, olive trees and coastal plants, features a table and chairs and sun loungers.

You can also take advantage of the communal clifftop garden to the front of the property where a dining area with benches allows you to enjoy breath taking views across the whole bay and maybe even spot seals and dolphins!

Relax in the day by the pool or take advantage of the all-weather tennis court for some friendly competition.

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 the front of the property, you can head in either direction along the breath-taking South West Coast Path.

Less than 5 minutes’ walk takes you to the fine shingle beach at Hallsands or venture a little further to the larger seaside village of Beesands (20 minutes’ walk or a short drive) with its popular seafood café (fabulous fish and chips!) and foodie pub, The Cricket Inn, Pub of the Year in the South West Tourism Awards 2019!

Further along the coast you will find two of the most popular beaches in South Devon: Slapton Sands, famous as the site for the rehearsal of the D-Day Landings and Blackpool Sands, a privately owned and maintained Blue Flag Award-winning beach backed by evergreens and scented pines.

Further afield explore the quaint streets of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge for boutique shops, wonderful restaurants and spectacular beaches, all just a short drive away.

About the location

HALLSANDS

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.
