The Coastguard Cottages at Lannacombe stand proudly overlooking the beautiful panorama of Lannacombe Bay on the southernmost tip of South Devon, a stunning unspoilt location that comes with its own beach, Ivy Cove.  1 Ivy Cove is the end cottage of a terrace of three and is a comfortable and practical, cottage set in a simply glorious spot. The coastal path passes below the cottages and from here there are miles of superb walking along the path that stretches from Dartmouth to Salcombe along craggy cliffs that dip into sandy coves.   Lannacombe beach, a few minutes from the cottage, is a wide sandy bay at low tide, and is a favourite with surfers and families alike. Walking, swimming, surfing and rock pooling are just some of the joys of this location or simply enjoy the peace and spectacular views from the cottage and garden at any time of the year.

Entrance hall, door into utility room with washing machine, and door into downstairs shower room. Large living room with stunning views out to sea and across to Lannacombe from the windows.  This room is comfortably furnished with two sofas, armchair, TV, a log burner, large dining table to seat 8.  Kitchen with views out to sea, electric cooker, dishwasher . Stairs to the first floor. Double bedroom with 4ft 6in bed, fitted cupboard and wonderful views. Small double bedroom. Adjacent bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and WC. Stairs to the top floor with two 3ft beds and bunk beds (3') and more wonderful views. Access to the cottage is at the rear.

A fairly rough track (not really suitable for low slung cars) leads from Lannacombe Beach to the Coastguard Cottages and the area surrounding them is enclosed by low walls and hedging. The grounds are not divided between the cottages and No. 1 has its own private area to the side of the property and driveway with table and benches. A raised area at the rear provides a communal clothes line. Gate on the edge of the grounds of the cottages allows access to a path down to Ivy Cove beach below.

Games Room/Den, with TV, DVD and Table Tennis table.

Parking for two cars. As this parking area is shared with 2 Ivy Cove consideration should be given to maintaining access.  Further parking (chargeable) is available on Lannacombe beach but this can be restricted due to limited availability and there is strictly no overnight parking.

  • Included: Bed linen (not towels), heating (electric heaters), electricity, 1 basket of logs and coal in winter.

Perfect location. How is it possible to have a sandy beach to yourselves, in Devon, on a hot bank holiday?! Really spacious cottage and well laid out. Beach in your back garden, brilliant pub within walking distance (and it’s a lovely walk) and a welcoming cottage with fantastic sea views to return to. We decided to book again in October.......but already booked.

August 2017

We had a lovely and very enjoyable week. A few notes.. I think 4 pm is too late for soonest can arrive... Considering we need to leave by 10 pm on day of departure, that is the best part of a day off our holiday. Usually places can take you from about 2. Why should it take 6 hours to clean? The wine and milk in the fridge was very much appreciated after a long journey. Thank you.

We have been going to 1 Ivy Cove since I was a child - over 50 years and always love our stay

May 2017

It is a shame that short breaks are unavailable during gaps in occupation , as would probably come down more often. Regards, Mark Shaw.

Thank you so much for a wonderful, magical stay. The setting and views are paradise. The cottage is beautifully done out and equipped to the highest standard - for once the property outshone the photographs on the website by a long way. Best holiday ever! Five stars!! The Fattouki family.

One thing that would really improve our cottage would be a microwave cooker as the electric cooker can be quite slow and tricky. If you want to get hungry kids just off the beach fed, a microwave would really help.

<p>Thank you for your comments and you&#39;ll be pleased to learn that there is now a microwave installed in the utility area. &nbsp;We hope to see you and the kids again soon. &nbsp;The Toad Hall team.</p>
