This pretty thatched 17th century cottage is tucked away down a quiet lane near the centre of the delightful village of Slapton, close to the 3 mile beach and Nature reserve. Extensively refurbished yet retaining the period features which make the cottage so attractive, guests will appreciate the comfortable sitting room, as well as the separate dining room and modern kitchen that both open onto the sheltered, sunny courtyard and small garden. Slapton’s two excellent pubs and well stocked village shop are a short stroll away and one of many pleasant local walks will take you to the long shingle beach that curves around Start Bay. There are plenty of coastal walks with amazing views and the cottage is perfectly placed as a very special base from where guests can explore the surrounding villages, countryside and beaches of this beautiful area.

Doorway to dining room with oak table and chairs to seat 4 and occasional cane chair. French doors to rear courtyard.

Great service ....especially appreciated heads up over roadworks locally
We had a great stay in this comfortable, well equipped and very lovely cottage. Slapton village and surrounding area made a wonderful setting for a happy and relaxing family holiday. We look forward to coming back!
Great Easter break. Cottage was as described no complaints. Having WiFi was a bonus, something that wasn't mentioned in any of our correspondence. Overall excellent cottage, would definitely book again :)
Lovely cottage in a great location to explore south Devon. Nice touches like milk in fridge on arrival. Good quality of bed, bedding, towels and crockery etc.
We had a lovely stay in this cottage, which was very comfortable and in a great location for enjoying the beautiful beaches and countryside nearby.
