Cob Cottage is a quintessential chocolate box thatched 14th Century cottage set in the heart of the ever popular village of Thurlestone, South Devon which has to be one of the best places for a seaside holiday on Devon’s south coast. This fantastic cottage is located in the old part of the village, a short walk from the village shop and pub and is just a 15 minute stroll from the beautiful sandy beaches and the splendid coastal path that stretches from Bantham and the Avon Estuary to the great cliffs at Bolt Head before Salcombe. Cob Cottage is a treasure, with an abundance of character, masses of exposed beams and brimming with artefacts, pictures, books and comfortable furniture. More shabby than chic but a real favourite with returning holidaymakers who love its relaxed home from home atmosphere. It enjoys a lovely garden at the rear together with its own parking bay, which is something of a premium in this village.

Property reviews for Cob Cottage
A lovely warm cottage with views across the sea. The cottage has just about everything you could ask for. The log burner and supply of logs and coal was a real bonus making a lovely feature in the evenings when the children had gone to bed! The cottage was set in the quiet, friendly, village of Beeson and within walking distance of the Cricketers Inn and the beach where we collected some beautiful slate for our garden. Most key visitor destinations were within half an hours drive of the cottage. We enjoyed days out in Darmouth, Kings Wear, Salcombe and Paignton. The area had lots to offer in the way of scenic walks. We took a short drive to the Start Point and enjoyed breathtaking views across the bay. All in all we had a fantastic break.
overall the whole experience was straight forward and trouble free would and have already recommended Toad Hall to family and friends
