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. A real favourite with returning holidaymakers who love its relaxed home from home atmosphere. It enjoys an enclosed garden at the rear together with its own parking bay, which is something of a premium in this village.

"Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful cottage. We have had the most truly amazing holiday..The scones and jam on arrival..ready for a nice cuppa were very welcome after a long journey. Also thanks to the housekeeper who we met on arrival, very helpful and pleasant. We would love to come and stay again"  The Thornhill Family

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!
