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. 

Please Note that this cottage is undergoing refurbishments for 2018 which include a new kitchen and bathroom and that the existing pictures (due to be updated in March 2018) will not reflect those improvements. However the accommodation description does reflect the planned changes.

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.

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.
