Gleaming tiles and polished wood floors with attractive rugs create a welcoming atmosphere, a treat to return to after an energetic day walking the coastal path (1 mile), or making sand castles and enjoying the rock pools at Lannacombe!

The Owner was exceptional as we always dread meeting them in case we are doing something wrong. Kenny was amazing, one in a million, made us so welcome. Would always go back to his lovely property.
We had a super stay. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The barn was fitted out with high quality furniture and equipment and was immaculately clean.
We really enjoyed our stay at Oak End Barn and found it very comfortable and the area great. The owner was very helpful and kind to our 3 year old. The approaches are very narrow. We would love to go back again some time.
A small pub in a beautiful setting serving excellent classic English pub food with a hint of French thrown in. Here you will find true seasonal field to plate eating using the best produce the local area has to offer accompanied by local ales and good quality French wines. Sunday roasts accompanied by live Jazz are especially popular.

The Millbrook Inn clear only wants rich adults to come and visit, its menu does not welcome children and this is a great shame.
Great pub, great atmosphere.
An interesting and different menu- think top end gastro pub. Lovely place to be, very friendly owners and helpful staff.
My husband and I ate at Millbrook tonight, absolutely beautiful meal and great service, thank you!
Pigs Nose Inn
A traditional 16th century inn overlooking the green in the pretty, windswept village of East Prawle with regular live music nights, and serving quality pub grub and real ales straight from the barrel.

This place is like walking into the moulin Rouge.... It's an incredible experience. You never quite know what to expect when you enter into the rabbit hole of East Prawle. However, one thing is for sure, it's all happening in the Pigs Nose. With Atomic Kitten playing last year it draws crowds from far and wide. You would never know what awaits behind the doors of the pigs nose when you drive into the sleepy little village of East Prawle. Whatever the night holds, quiet or explosive, you are sure to be entered. Recently there have been some insanely talented musicians playing at the pub. The landlady and her son gives everyone a warm welcome and makes you feel like your in your own sitting room. It is definitly worth coming the extra mile for.
A fantastic pub - wonderful atmosphere, great food, and friendly staff
Needs a good clean and then it could be a great pub.
A beautiful, clean little café with a good menu. Very tasty food and friendly service. Would highly recommend.
The Cricket Inn
A light and airy seaside pub and restaurant serving high quality dishes using the excellent fish, seafood caught in the bay and other locally sourced produce. Plenty of seating, a great kids menu and excellent Sunday lunches make this a family favourite.

Wonderful food and impeccable service. Hope you are in business for a good many years you deserve it
Friendly and efficient staff with good choice of food but somewhat limited for vegetarians. Dog friendly.
Sunday lunch was very good reasonably priced for location but went back during week had lemon sole on there specials plus one other standard meal and two drinks came to 60 pounds extremely overpriced especially as after charging me 22 pound for the fish the veg was an extra 4 pound .We considered this to be overpriced for what we got .
Expensive drinks but food good
Lovely pub which always seems to be busy. A varied menu with plenty of fresh fish dishes and juicy steaks. Good service and friendly staff who made the effort to pass the time of day even though they were busy. Nothing too much trouble. Would visit again.
Great food and service. Well worth a visit
Known by locals as ‘The Shack’ this is a great al fresco restaurant and fishmonger serving super fresh seafood just off boat. Menus change daily depending on what the fishermen have landed, and with just a few tables booking is advisable. Serves breakfasts, lunches and early dinner as well as tasty take away fish and chips; alcohol isn’t available but you are welcome to bring your own.

Managed to squeeze us in for an early evening booking - so glad they did. Great food, and top notch service from very friendly staff. Seafood Jumbalaya is wonderful, and rather filling. If you are nearby, and are able to get a reservation do - if not, try the takeaway and each on the beach :)
Great food, friendly and attentive staff, dogs made welcome , just perfect.
Had a lovely meal at The Britannia. Super fresh fish , great people and it's a BYO. What more could you wish for! Necessary to book ahead as there are only a few tables.
Wonderful! Such delicious food and friendly staff.
A fave to do- grab fish & chips from their takeaway and sit and eat on the beach. Simply perfect.
The best food by a mile in this area of South Devon. We had a lovely evening sat on a bench opposite - we brought our own wine as there's no licence (but this saves on costs!). We had the freshly caught and cooked lobster, 'crack-your-own' crab, and a beautiful bowl of mussels. The lady owner or manager couldn't have been more helpful - we turned up on a Friday night with no reservation, and she went out of her way to accommodate us. If you only go to one place to eat whilst on holiday in the area, then it has to be here. Yes, rustic. Yes, simple. But simple fresh food, cooked amazingly well....and what a view!!! Go with friends and make an evening of it! Cannot recommend highly enough!!
Visited a few times during our week in Beesands and also had takeaway. Great food and lovely staff who really know how to look after their customers. Even went out to rescue lost customers after a local road was closed. Will definitely visit again. Make sure you book though, they will squeeze you in if they can but they are always busy.

Fantastic walk with wonderful views, you'll find the best beach in the South Hams hear, bit of a walk but it is glorious.
We really enjoyed our visit. My husband and son had a tour (£5 per adult and under 5's free) and thought it was brilliant. Children under 1.1m's tall can not go on the tour so my younger son and I enjoyed the coastal views which were fantastic.
Yawl & Launch Hire Salcombe
Hiring a traditional Salcombe Yawl or launch is a fabulous way to explore the Salcombe estuary taking in the beaches and wildlife along the way. The Salcombe Yawl is an attractive 16ft dingy unique to Salcombe suitable for racing or cruising with the family, or alternatively, less experienced sailors can hire a sturdier harbour launch with inboard engine to potter from beach to beach. Both are available on a weekly basis along with everything you need to have and enjoyable yet safe time on the water. Sailing tuition in a Salcombe Yawl, or leisurely skippered sails around the harbour are also available in the safe hands of experienced local sailor Scratch Hitchen.

Fantastic place to while away a few hours with the children entertained. The decoupage was really good and prices pretty reasonable.
The kids loved it here, really creative and a great rainy day activity
Rugged and unspoiled, Lannacombe is the beach for those looking for total escapism on their South West holiday. Small and perfect for escaping from the summer crowds, it’s one of the best places to visit to simply enjoy the Devon scenery in all its natural glory. There’s a small car park just behind the beach so do get there early in order to guarantee a space, although there is further parking a short walk away if need be. Dogs are welcome at the beach throughout the year and as it offers access to the Coast Path it’s a good idea to combine your visit with a walk to take in the views of sea and countryside, perhaps towards Start Point where there is further parking around 30-40 minutes away on foot. At low tide the beach offers gentle rock pooling so it’s a lovely spot to head to for a quiet afternoon with the family, building sandcastles and eating sandwiches if you remember to bring them. There aren’t any cafes and restaurants immediately on site, so do remember to take anything you need with you, and there aren’t any toilets in the near vicinity either, so that’s worth keeping in mind when you plan your day. If you have been on holidays in Devon and Cornwall before you will also know that you need to watch our for the tide at many of the beaches, including this one in order to avoid disappointment or getting wet, you can pick up a tide timetable at local post offices!

Gorgeous beach, but be careful if you have a dog that likes to run as our Border Collie got very sore paws on the pebbles.

Britannia Fish - Great fish - always fresh and lovely family run business. A must for anyone who likes eating good fish!
Ideal for quiet and peaceful holiday with two good restaurants both of which are dog friendly.

A bit of a walk down from the car park but so worth it, arguably the best beach in the South Hams
