A delightful cottage with uninterrupted sea views, situated on the South West coastal path at Prawle Point. Perfect for families, couples & small groups, it offers bright, homely, accommodation in a glorious location. Just a short drive away from all amenities, including the glorious beaches at East Portlemouth & Torcross, this cosy cottage is an ideal base for walking, bird-watching, fishing, exploring the South Hams or simply relaxing at any time of year. It is hard to beat this totally unspoilt and peaceful location and the village of East Prawle with the lively Pig’s Nose Inn and local shop are both a short distance from the cottage. So pack the walking boots and bathing costumes and come to explore this beautiful area with its craggy cliff paths that dip down to secluded sandy coves. A wood burning stove & smart electric radiators mean this cottage is warm & cosy on the coldest and windiest days of the year. Whenever you come you know that you will be able to relax, unwind and enjoy the ever changing coastal panorama from the comfort of this lovely cottage.

June 2019

We had a fantastic week. The house was immaculate and very well equipped. The garden was beautiful and the view of the sea made it perfect. We would definitely recommend this place.

June 2019

The cottage and location was wonderful. Driving down the narrow lane was quite stressful, but I know that this is unavoidable. Possibly the Council could be lobbied to cut the hedges back as both our cars got scratched by brambles on the final approach to the cottage.

April 2019

It was all very lovely. Great views and well stocked cottage. Spotlessly clean .

July 2018

The cottage was fantastic and we enjoyed every minute we spent there. This was one occasion where the photos of the accommodation and the stunning views were 100% accurate. We were also fortunate to pick a week of perfect weather! We definitely want to return next year.

June 2018

We had a great time in this fantastic, newly renovated cottage. A real home from home.

May 2018

Fantastic Loved being on the coastal path. Really lovely property with high specification

April 2018

The accommodation was absolutely faultless. Beautifully decorated and equipped with a very high standard throughout. As a family who has hired one or two cottages a year for the last fifteen or so years, we thought this was one of the best ones we have ever stayed in. Please pass on our gratitude to the owners, who have poured so much attention to detail in to making a great holiday experience. Notes to others: Didn't need towels, as they were provided but docs asked us to bring them. Do a week's shop before you arrive, as topping up your shopping once here involves a lot of driving and can eat in to your leisure time. Do go to the Pig's Nose pub for fish and chips. Bring wellies!

We loved ourbstay! What an amazing spot!!

August 2017

The cottage was lovely. We couldn't believe how wonderful the location is. The view from the garden is stunning and ever changing. The garden is so pretty and full of wildlife. The cottage has everything you need and has a lovely homely and welcoming feel to it. Anyone who stays here will be in for a treat.

April 2017

I enjoyed the week in the cottage tremendously! My one complaint would be that the storage heater in the sitting room never became warm and I tried various settings without success. The one in the bedroom on the first floor worked beautifully and I could even adjust it. Still, sitting there wrapped up in the extra duvet made me feel comfortable. I hope to be able to go there again before too long. Thank you

Thank you for your feedback this will be passed to the owner and we will have ask the caretaker to investigate the heater. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at this lovely cottage. Many Thanks The Toad Hall Team.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage

March 2017

Superb location and a lovely cottage. I would point out that the wifi didn't work despite connecting correctly. We overcame this ourselves but it could have been a deal breaker especially as the landline was not available for outgoing calls despite saying it was if we paid into the honesty box. There was a distinct lack of basic information about the courage such as turning on the immersion when we arrived. This was only deduced the night we arrived when we realised only cold water was there! There was no information about refuse collection or recycling so we did the best we could by looking at other peoples bins. I would point out that none of these things spoilt our holiday. We had a great time and loved the cottage. It is very well equipped and comfortable. Please thank the owners for a lovely stay.

We're delighted you enjoyed your stay despite the annoying lack of information. We have replaced the missing guest information folder which has instructions on all the points you mention and although the phone is no longer available the Wi-Fi is working as it should. Thank you for bringing these matters to our attention.
