At the head of the Avon Estuary and nestled into a secluded valley, is the characterful South Hams village of Aveton Gifford - location for some of our most delightful holiday cottages. Nuckwell Cottage is a beautiful property set in a peaceful setting surrounded by fields and with an orchard a short distance from Aveton Gifford. Tucked away in the peaceful hamlet of Waterhead, are the charming lodgings of Skippers Hill Cottage; lovingly refurbished and full of original features, you can look forward to cosy evenings around the open woodburner. The Shippen is full of light and spacious rooms, its enclosed patio and pretty garden offer the perfect opportunity for alfresco dining and family fun. Accommodating up to six guests, The Shippen, is one of our many South Devon holiday cottages that is dog-friendly. All three of these eye-catching cottages are only a short distance away from Bantham beach, Bigbury-on-Sea and Burgh Island, and offer magnificent walks along the winding Avon valley.
