  • "Light, airy, modern, comfortable, warm house with plenty of space and a very good layout."

    Improvements? perhaps some coat hooks inside the front door and a boot tray there too to make it unnecessary to take coats through the sitting room. Pillows in main bedroom very worn out and would like to have found a carving knife !

  • "We were a party of 8 (4 couples) who have known each other a very long time so, even though the weather was iffy, we had a great time and the cottage was spacious and comfortable."

    The footy table was a bonus! We ate in twice but ate out at the Village Inn which was excellent.

  • "Sea Peep is a fantastic house, it is spacious, comfortable and very well furnished."

    It’s location in Thurlestone is ideal for a family with young children who enjoy a beach holiday, as you can walk to four beaches easily, all with soft golden sands. The local pub is very welcoming and serves good food and the village shop is well stocked. Which all adds up to very special holiday.

  • "Sea Peep is a beautiful property in excellent condition."

    The house is very modern but also very homely and the open plan style in the main living area makes it a fantastic place to share family time. The kitchen is the best equipped I have experienced in a holiday home, I was very impressed. Also very close walking distance to the local pub, the beach and coastal path (approximately 7-10 minutes to each). I would thoroughly recommend this property.

    Thank you for your comments regarding you stay at Sea Peep. We are very happy to hear that you felt the property was well equipped and that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay we do hope that you choose to book with us again. Property Owner

    Upon arrival this time we found the house and facilities very clean, which in the light of Covid 19 was reassuring. We would recommend the house to others.

    We are very pleased to welcome you back to Sea Peep and are very happy that you have enjoyed another stay with us. Thank you for your comments regarding the facilities and cleanliness of the property, we are glad that you felt comfortable and reassured during your stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    The only thing missing was a ball for the table football! It is in a great location and was very comfortable. We had a great holiday and would certainly book it again if we decide to go back to Thurlestone.

  • "Sea Peep is a beautiful, spacious, comfortable and well appointed home."

    Staying in Sea Peeps just added to what was a fantastic holiday. The village of Thurlestone is idyllic and the various local beaches are as good as anywhere in the world. I cannot praise the house and location highly enough.

  • "Sea pep is an amazing house."

    It has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. The house itself is beautiful with a fantastic open plan kitchen, diner, Living room. The bedrooms are all spacious, all with their own en-suite which is great for couples or like us, lots of teenagers!The view across to Thurlestone is beautiful. If, like us, you like to walk, then this house is spot on. Our car never moved all week. Thurlestone beach is only 10 minutes away, Bantham, 35 mins and South Milton which is a stunning beach is only 20 mins. The coastal walks are also very impressive. A perfect place to holiday. We will certainly be returning.

  • "Stunning well equipped holiday home in a perfect peaceful village location."

    Sea Peep was perfect for me & my husband, 2 children and 80 year old Father in law to all have a lovely holiday. We loved the fact you could walk to the beach and village pub in just over 10 minutes. The children loved the rabbit that visited the garden each day and the bulls in the field opposite! It was lovely to relax on the sun loungers with a glass of wine whilst watching the farmer work the fields. I think Thurlestone is a great base to visit Devon as it is peaceful but near enough to drive to Salcombe and all the surrounding places. We drove to The Model railway in Babbacombe near Torquay and took a steam train from Dartmouth to Paignton. It was only around an hour away. I would love this house to be our permanent home! We look forward to visiting again sometime.

  • "First impressions of the house were excellent, it was everything we hoped that it would be."

    Thurlestone is a beautiful place with the golden sands of the local beaches only a short walk away. The area around Thurlestone is very picturesque with an abundance of lovely places to visit. I would highly recommend Sea Peep for a wonderful family holiday.

  • "This was our 6th or 7th visit to Sea Peep and sadly our last as it will not be big enough next year."

    It has always been a lovely place to stay, the only drawback being the inability to recycle rubbish which, in this day and age, is a priority.

    Our only frustration is that all sound/conversation from downstairs is magnified if you are sitting/sleeping upstairs. Inherent in the design unfortunately.

  • "Excellent design and decoration."

    Plenty of space for families. Issues concerning lack of clarity re refuse bin usage (1 green and 1 grey/black ) both apparently for rubbish and different collection days, no details in house infomation file. Disappointing not to have recycling bin but appreciate South Hams maybe to blame ? Also a tumble dryer would be helpful.

  • "Sea Peep Is a high quality and very desirable property and is designed to take full advantage of drawing light inside."

    A nice dilemma to have was where shall we chill out? Upstairs on the L shaped large sofa on the mezzanine, or out on the balcony to take advantage of enjoying the "Peep" to the sea. Downstairs is equally as comfortable and having a large private patio and garden overlooking the gently rising and green landscape is also rather nice. If you want to cook you have everything you could possible need or want from a kitchen. Getting about is easy and a short walk takes you to The Village Inn and this saves having to use the car or call a cab. If you have small children or aged parents as we have, the short drive around to the Village isn't a problem or the journey into the coffee bars and restaurants of Salcombe and further afield to Dartmouth is worthwhile. Sea Peeps close proximity to the coast path, golf and tennis club if that's your desire, and miles of fantastic walks on your doorstep ticks my box. If you run as we do, a vista of magnificent and stunning scenery adds to the ups and downs all the way to Hope Cove and beyond. On this occasion and our first visit to this property, it was just my wife and I and we enjoyed what Sea Peep had to offer. Even with a full house you wouldn't feel crowded, or overcrowded. I wouldn't hesitate to take a winter holiday here and can imagine enjoying the warm glow from a roaring log fire in the enormous fireplace to greet you after a good run, or a bracing walk. What more do you want? A full cooked breakfast of course!

  • "Fantastic house and exactly what we were expecting in terms of comfort, roominess and location."

    Only one negative and it almost seems churlish to mention it but there were no logs for the open fire (the property spec says that logs are included). It wouldn't put us off booking this house again though. We had a lovely family time. Top marks to Coast & Country and Sea Peep.

  • "Beautiful house a real home from home."

    Plenty of space and really good quality beds and linen. Lovely location and walking distance to the beach and village. Would be nice to have a 6' bed in the master bed as there's more than enough room also better for the taller person! A TV in the bedroom would also be a bonus. We couldn't get the channels on the 2 TVs so show different programmes so could only watch the same programme on both which was a pain when you had an age range of 9-90! The kitchen is very well equipped, all that's missing are some dessert bowls. The house was very cosy and warm at Christmas and a great place for entertaining with the large table and upstairs lounge area. Would recommend this house to anyone and have done already. Would love to return in the warmer months to take advantage of the outdoor space and views.

  • "Fabulous house and well appointed."

    In an excellent location. Couple of nit picky points. I thought they would supply a stock of items like bin liners & loo paper. Also loo paper - poor quality! There was also a shortage of deep cereal/desert bowls.
