  • "Wonderful cottage very well equipped."

    Had everything you could think of. Lovely to get there and find goodies to welcome us. Madeline was very friendly and helpful, a delightful host. The cottage is in a beautiful location with lots of easy or challenging walks to the beach. Great pub nearby with really good food. A fantastic week.

  • "A lovely spacious cottage in a peaceful location."

    The owner is very friendly and welcoming. We didn't have any problems but if we had done, I have no doubt that they would have been sorted very quickly. Most likely we will return one day.

  • "We cannot fault this lovely cottage!"

    We received a lovely warm welcome and the cottage is a real home from home with everything you could possibly need for your stay. There are so many thoughtful touches, from a welcome hamper, to local maps and recommendations, torches to venture out at night (to the rather splendid local pub), blankets to snuggle up in the evening and a well equipped kitchen. This comfy, cosy cottage is well located for exploring the delights of the area, which Ayrmer Cove just a gentle stroll away and Bigbury on Sea and Kingsbridge just a short drive away. A fabulous stay and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it!

  • "Fantastic property, beautifully furnished and brilliantly equipped, we really appreciated all the lovely details such as the artwork, blankets and doorstops with little shells."

    We slept really well on the high quality beds, it was warm and cosy even in February and there was plenty of hot water. Will definitely be back when we can!

  • "Unfortunately the heating was a real issue whilst we stayed at Bramble Cottage."

    So much so that my partner had to go over one evening to the owners own house to ask how to get it back on. The water was running cold 5 nights out of 6 and with 2 children under 2 this was less than ideal. I was unable to bathe them of an evening which is part of their bedtime routine. The heating also was unable to be adjusted. All radiators had locks on, so you were stuck with the temperature regardless of your preference. During the winter months with 2 babies it would have been nice to have had the cottage much warmer, but unfortunately we were unable to change it. My 2 year old son had to sleep in his socks

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The owner is on site and always available to assist during your stay. You registered an issue with the hot water and she described where the 'boost' button was to provide more hot water. You let her know that you subsequently had plentiful hot water. Unfortunately, you didn't contact the owner again so she didn't have the opportunity to assist further. As an update, the owner has found the heating and hot water system to be working in order.

  • "A wonderful cottage in a beautiful location."

    The only negatives would be the armchair near the window was uncomfortable. It needed a more supportive base and the double mattress could do with replacing in the near future. The most helpful hosts and a wonderful selection of treats left for us.

    Thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback. The Owner appreciates you bringing these points to her attention. The armchair has been checked, it appears that the webbing at the bottom of the chair has become loose, this will be attended to. The double mattress is relatively new and we haven't received any other comments previously that it isn't comfortable, as you can appreciate mattresses are a matter of preference. We are glad that you had an enjoyable holiday and hope to maybe see you again in the not too distant future. Property Owner

  • "Bramble Cottage in Ringmore is at the end of some very narrow Devonshire lanes and it's worth driving every yard to get there (the directions given are helpful and accurate)."

    The friendly welcome by Madeleine Capps and/or her son makes you feel at home even before you have entered the cottage. And the cottage is perfect: cosy and comfortable with everything you could possibly need - at least we easily found everything that we needed. The cottage is situated in lovely surroundings with pleasant walks to the coast path and then perhaps to Bigbury and Burgh Island, for example. To put it briefly: highly recommended.

    There is good storage space, it is well sound insulated and there is a view of the sea looking out over the roof of the 14th century Journey's End pub. There is an attractive selection of pictures with a sea theme on the walls, and a shelf full of useful and up to date local guides The beds are comfortable, the linen spotless. Owner Madeleine gave us a lovely welcome and the daily newspaper was much appreciated. Ayrmer Cove is great for swimming and a short walk past thatched cottages and green fields. There is excellent gastro pub and ordinary pub food are nearby, together with a fish and chip shop very close on Challaborough Beach, plus a very well stocked food shop in the next village. No negatives whatsoever - a model place to stay!

With lovely views down the valley to the sea, it is a neat and cosy base for families or couples to enjoy seaside fun, walking or peace and quiet.

Outside you have your own little patio area surrounded by walls to relax in.

When you don't feel like cooking, you have a brilliant pub with tempting menu in the village, or treat yourselves to the excellent seafood restaurant a couple of miles away.

You days will be easily filled with hours on the beach at Ayrmer Cove, Challaborough or Bigbury-on-Sea, making sandcastles, surfing or maybe taking the sea tractor to Burgh Island.

For walkers, this is wonderful coast with the beautiful South West Coast Path and the pretty Erme estuary to explore.

About the location


Bigbury-on-Sea 3 miles; Kingsbridge 7 miles; Salcombe 11 miles; Plymouth 15.5 miles.

Ringmore is a small village in Devon, in the South Devon AONB, one mile from the secluded beach and stunning cliffs of Bigbury Bay.
The Saxon church of All Hallows stands majestically over this quintessentially English village. Ringmore is a conservation village with thatched cottages, a peaceful rural pace of life & an award winning pub, the Journey's End Inn serving cask ales, local produce and a friendly welcome. A comprehensively stocked shop and Post Office is located in St Anne's Chapel, a short drive away and they are happy to deliver. Three different paths lead down to Ayrmer Cove from the village, and connect with the South West Coast Path. Footpaths lead to Challaborough Bay and to the golden sandy beaches of Bigbury-on-Sea, from which Burgh Island is reached by the famous Sea Tractor. Bigbury-on-Sea beach is ideal for family holidays. Everyone is sure to marvel at the huge expanse of sand, enjoy exploring the rock pools, or sample the varied watersports available to the more active visitors. If you want to try something different from the body boarding or surfing, then windsurfing and kite-surfing are gaining popularity here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. For peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury-on-Sea’s Blue Flag beach from May to September, and a fabulous café specialising in selling organic and local food; whose surf ‘n’ turf is one of the best in the area. A few miles from Ringmore are plenty of delightful South Hams villages, coastal beauty spots and the traditional English market town of Kingbridge on the estuary.
