A delightful cottage with uninterrupted sea views, situated on the South West coastal path at Prawle Point. Perfect for families, couples & small groups, it offers bright, homely, well-equipped accommodation in a glorious location. Just a short drive away from all amenities, including the glorious beaches at East Portlemouth & Torcross, this cosy cottage is an ideal base for walking, bird-watching, fishing, exploring the South Hams or simply relaxing at any time of year. It is hard to beat this totally unspoilt and peaceful location and the village of East Prawle with the lively Pig’s Nose Inn and local shop are both a short distance from the cottage. So pack the walking boots and bathing costumes and come to explore this beautiful area with its craggy cliff paths that dip down to secluded sandy coves. A wood burning stove & storage heaters mean this cottage is warm & cosy on the coldest and windiest days of the year. Whenever you come you know that you will be able to relax, unwind and enjoy the ever changing coastal panorama from the comfort of this lovely cottage. 

Please Note that this cottage is only suitable for a maximum of 4 adults and 2 children and that TV reception is variable.

East Prawle

  • The coastline at East Prawle has many wonderful beaches and coves. Its colourful history is dotted with tales of smuggling and ship wrecks and makes for stunning walks in either direction.

  • The Pigs Nose Inn is an enchanting, traditional pub, serving hearty pub grub and real ale straight from the cask. Once a favourite haunt for smugglers, every visit is memorable.

  • The local village cafe and shop are in the centre of the village and cater for all your basic needs. The Piglet Cafe is well known for its breakfasts, perfect for filling up before a long walk.

South Devon

  • Whether you’re kite surfing, paddleboarding or wild swimming, South Devon provides fantastically scenic opportunities for trying out all sorts of adventure sports.

  • Relax on a South Devon Railway steam train ride up the picturesque Dart valley from Buckfastleigh to Totnes.

  • Walk the miles of stunning South West Coast Path (with your four-legged friend if staying at a pet-friendly property), stopping off in quaint villages and deserted coves.

  • Sailors love Dartmouth and Salcombe, but there are plenty of shops and pubs for the landlubbers.


  • Visit the moors and tors of the National Parks: Dartmoor dominates the heart of the county whilst Exmoor hugs the North Devon coast.

  • Devon boasts Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth, steeped in seafaring history, or for a spot of retail therapy why not visit historic Exeter.

  • You’ll feel closer to nature whilst in Devon, but if you fancy a more exotic experience, try Paignton Zoo or the National Marine Aquarium for great family days out.

  • Explore the quaint villages, miles of beaches and walk the coast path in South Devon, making sure you stop off for a cream tea en route!
