So named because the original owners were accomplished golfers, The Nineteenth is now enjoyed by a family of keen surfers and lovers of water sports. Refurbished throughout, this attractive property offers light and airy accommodation with wonderful views of the coastline and sea from many of the rooms and the sunny raised terrace.  Located just a short walk from the sandy beach and the South West Coastal Path it’s hard to imagine a more idyllic spot, summer or winter, with so much for families and couples to do on the doorstep.  The open plan living area provides a perfect venue for getting together with friends and family and the garden provides a sheltered spot to soak up some sun or dine alfresco. The Nineteenth is on one level and parking for two cars provides added convenience.

"….mesmerised by the views; delighted with the dog friendly food stops; lucky with the weather and utterly content with the house! ….had a absolutely wonderful holiday.  Now so chilled we can barely pop our corks …”. 

"Excellent location and very comfortable! A very well equipped and maintained property. Fantastic location for the beautiful beaches at Bigbury on sea. The surf school is brilliant and all just a short walk (5 mins max) from the house. We had our baby daughter with us so really appreciated not having to take a travel cot or high chair with us!"

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!

Property reviews for The Nineteenth

Rated 4.5/5 based on 18 reviews

It was our third visit to The Nineteenth and we enjoyed it as much this time as we did the previous times. After a day out or a walk from the property it is a very pleasant place to come back to relax in the garden or on the balcony.

Wonderful location with excellent coastal views. The layout of the property is lovely and having two gardens was a real bonus.

As ever an exceptional property . Everything a family could need for a splendid holiday is provided .

have booked with toad hall now for five years, will continue

We did not see the caretaker or owner so I have left the answer as average but that was fine with us. This property has amazing views from all angles and the sunsets from the balcony were beautiful.

We had a great holiday and will probably book the accomodation again

Had a great holiday and are hoping to book again for next year. Many thanks.

The property did not disappoint. Excellent location and very comfortable !

We spent a very good week at The Nineteenth and would certainly use Toad Hall Cottages again.

The accommodation was excellent and the views are stunning! We loved it!

Beautiful location

A very well equipped and maintained property. Fantastic location for the beautiful beaches at Bigbury on sea. The surf school is brilliant and all just a short walk (5 mins max) from the house. We had our baby daughter with us so really appreciated not having to take a travel cot or high chair with us!

we had a fabulous stay and property was well equipped. Whenever I phoned Toad hall cottages everyone I spoke to was polite and happy to help. Thank you
