    “Fantastic cottage close to the sea”

    This is a fabulous place (though see my advice at the end). A lovely cottage tucked away down a quiet lane. It has been fully restored with all the mod-cons. On arrival it was spotlessly clean – so much so it looked new! A small welcome pack of bread, eggs, butter, wine was a lovely touch. It has an excellent kitchen with all that you need; induction hob, dishwasher, washer-dryer washing machine etc all top quality.

    This is a fabulous place (though see my advice at the end). A lovely cottage tucked away down a quiet lane. It has been fully restored with all the mod-cons. On arrival it was spotlessly clean – so much so it looked new! A small welcome pack of bread, eggs, butter, wine was a lovely touch. It has an excellent kitchen with all that you need; induction hob, dishwasher, washer-dryer washing machine etc all top quality. Lovely, large master bedroom and small and charming double bunkroom for kids. Come as a couple and use this for storage I suggest. The bathroom is excellent, clean and bright with a large shower/bath. There is a delightfully nautically themed seating at the rear outside too, but more of a summer thing of course. There are lots of local interest books on the shelves and board games too. We liked the ‘tide times’ clock, which we found really useful once set correctly. The place has under-floor heating, which is all you need to keep it warm with the staircase door open to let some heat upstairs. There is no phone signal (perhaps a bonus – or walk down to the beach to get it) but there is wifi and a landline with an honesty box. So some advice… This place is down some really narrow lanes so be sure of your driving/reversing skills. Don’t think of relying on a satnav. Get the OL20 OS map and use that. Come to the place from below i.e. North Hallsands, as the road down to it is so narrow. Getting anywhere with the tiny lanes will take ages so be prepared to do short outings: local beach, Torcross, Beesands, Start Lighthouse, or stay in/walk etc. Perhaps Salcombe on the tiny boat that takes passengers across the river. Those with limited mobility will find it hard to get up to as it has small and steep entrance steps. There is one parking space, which is larger than it looks, but if you come in two cars park one at North Hallsands and walk back to the cottage. Shame there appears to be no recycling but perhaps the commercial is sorted. All in all this is a fabulous place. We just loved it!

The property

In the little rural hamlet of Bickerton, 400 yards from Hallsands beach and the Coast Path which takes you to an excellent pub and seafood restaurant, is this Victorian cottage in a row of three.

Traditional in style and in a wonderfully peaceful setting, it is excellent accommodation for anyone who loves walking or the sea.

Head up a few steps from the little road and through stable doors into the open plan living space, all smart and comfortable with charming traces of the 19th century origins.

Snuggle up beside the warming wood burning stove, watch TV or enjoy leisurely meals around the dining table.

Head on upstairs to the two bedrooms, with doors from the bunk bedroom to the outdoor terrace.

This is a lovely, relaxing space to sit out in, with its table and chairs for alfresco meals and long views as far as the sea.

With the South West Coast Path so close, lace up your boots and head out for fabulous scenery and places where the path dips down into little coves and villages.

Marvel from the viewing platform at the cliffside ruins where the original village of Hallsands was washed into the waves on a stormy night in 1917.

Or go further to Beesands and some of the freshest and best fish and chips in the county from the beachside café or a drink at the pub where Mick Jagger gave his first public performance as a teenager.

Kingsbridge and Salcombe are both busy little towns to wander and indulge in some satisfying retail therapy.

Seacombe is a dear little base for immersing yourself in the delights of this lovely coastline.

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.
