5 Coastguard Cottages sits on the southernmost point of Devon, looking out to sea, a mile from East Prawle. With stunning views over the coastline at the front, and countryside views to the rear, this cottage has been extended to create a spacious and elegant 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom family home which is equally as cosy for small groups and couples. With direct access to the South West Coast Path the picturesque location is the perfect place to explore tucked away coves and clifftop walks and then unwind at the end of a busy day with a chilled glass of wine on the terrace admiring the views or relax cosied up around the log burner on winter evenings.
The village of East Prawle is full of local charm offering a café and shop (open seasonally) and a popular local pub, The Pigs Nose Inn, known for its quirky style and the attached hall which is a popular live music venue. All of these are situated around the pretty village green. There are lovely beaches on this stretch of coastline, including Maceley Cove, a mile round the cliff path, Gara Rock, 2 ½ miles, Mattiscombe Sands and Lannacombe 4 and 3 miles respectively, all of which can be reached via the SW Coast Path or by roads to the top of the paths down to the beaches. East Portlemouth, nearby, has a passenger ferry to the popular sailing town of Salcombe with restaurants, cafes and shops. The bustling market town of Kingsbridge is a thirty minute drive away, and historic Dartmouth is a ten mile drive along the scenic coastal road with plenty of places to stop and enjoy en route. A fantastic location to explore all the glorious South Hams has to offer.

Very much enjoyed as an ex owner we were very impressed with the standard now being reached. A welcome pack (milk, wine etc) might have made it better!
We had a wonderful stay - the cottage was really comfortable and the location is amazing.
Such a wonderful and lovely cottage in a spectacular location. We had such a fantastic relaxing week and couldn’t have asked for anything more. It has a very homely feel, the views are stunning and if you are looking for a remote location to completely unwind this is the place for you.
