The appropriately named Limpet is all about the location. Set on the cliffs overlooking secluded Cove Beach below, with views down the coast to Start Point it’s difficult to imagine a better setting.  The Southwest Coast Path passes the door and gives visitors access to miles of beautiful coastline, perfect for dog walking, bird watching or rock pooling.  The village of Torcross is a short walk down the hill and has an excellent pub, two cafes and a local shop, or go down the steps to the beach and along to Beesands, for the Britannia Fish Shack and the Cricket Inn. The brave could take a bracing swim before breakfast! Limpet has everything you will need for ‘sea for two’, airy in summer and cosy in the winter. The studio/living room has comfortable seating, a dining table by the window to take advantage of the views, and a king-size bed from where the beam of the lighthouse will keep you company and the sound of the sea lull you to sleep. There is a separate, well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a sunny garden area where you can relax and enjoy the sea views to the horizon.

Lovely property with great views. It’s just a fabulous area to stay

May 2019

Limpet exceeded all our expectations! What a gem of a place. The views were spectacular and the accommodation was clean and welcoming. We had fresh flowers on the table and there was milk, bread and a bottle of prosecco waiting in the fridge! We highly recommend this property.

October 2018

We had an amazing holiday at Limpet cottage with our dog in October 2018. The views from every room were stunning and the sea and skies were mesmerising. The sound of the waves crashing onto the beach and the light from the light house at Start Point flashing into the room every nigh was magical. Access to the beach on the doorstep was great and it was very quiet. Most places were dog friendly and the coastal walking was beautiful. We have already booked to return for another week in April 2019 as we loved it so much!

August 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Limpet. Small but perfectly formed! So comfortable and equipped with everything a holiday home needs. The view is outstanding and Torcross is so pretty. We never tired of sitting with a glass of something nice just watching the sea and falling asleep to the sound of the waves gently lapping at the shore was just wonderful! A minor problem was efficiently sorted out with a phone call to the owner. A gorgeous holiday home in a truly fabulous location!

July 2018

Yes very much, the property was in a fabulous location and had stunning views.

August 2017

We fell in love with the place. The view was entrancing. We practically had our own private beach - in August. The owner and her family were lovely people. There was cake and wine and flowers to welcome us. Out dog was tremendously happy as well. We hardly had to put her on a lead. Perfect place if you have a dog, like walking or having fun in the sea.

May 2017

We thorough enjoyed our stay. Limpet is delightful and the number of steps up and down to Torcross kept us fit! The view is lovely from the table in the window.

Just perfect; a quaint, beautiful and calming place to relax. Dreaming away through the window and listening to the waves below! Will miss this little Limpet House.

February 2016

Delightful place, neat and tidy. Delicious views when the sun catches. A sunset glass of wine at the top of the garden highly recommended.

September 2015

Limpet is a wonderful little place and the views have to be seen to be believed. It really is in an exceptional location on the top of a cliff looking towards the sea and beach. I have already recommended it to my family. We didn't want to leave!

July 2015

We had the privilege of the first holiday let in Limpet and it was perfect for two. Comfortable, very well equipped and those views are amazing!
