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. Sandycoombe is a terraced cottage with splendid countryside views, its fresh feel and welcoming décor set the tone throughout all of its four floors. 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.
