The Malthouse is a stylish barn conversion set over three floors nestled in the tiny hamlet of Holset near East Portlemouth -just a short hop on the foot ferry to the popular town of Salcombe. With a large and very well-equipped contemporary kitchen diner, a very spacious lounge with log burner and another dining area, making this a fantastic house for a family event or special occasion. The master suite sits on the top floor and four further bedrooms are on the ground floor, along with an outdoor terrace area for alfresco dining. The beautiful location with far reaching views, lends itself well to family get togethers and relaxing breaks with friends to explore the stunning local area.

Holset is a mile from the village of East Portlemouth, which sits on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary; those who enjoy a morning walk will love taking a leisurely stroll to the foot ferry and going across for a newspaper or a coffee. The more adventurous will love the stunning cliff walks with spectacular sea views, admiring the hustle of bustling Salcombe harbour or visiting a range of independent shops and boutiques. The gorgeous Gara Rock Resort is less than a mile away, serving delicious food in a breath-taking location and situated right on the South West Coast Path, making The Malthouse a great base for walkers and runners. There is also tidal access to the estuary half a mile away for those wanting to access the water. The market town of Kingsbridge is a thirty minute drive away and Dartmouth around forty minutes; both have many amenities, shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. The Malthouse offers comfortable, stylish accommodation from which to explore all that the scenic South Hams has to offer.

The barn is spacious, tastefully decorated with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. It is in a quiet location within easy reach of great beaches, cliff walks & the ferry to Salcombe for those interested in local shops. The Cafe/restaurant at Gara Rock is amazing as are its views - so well worth a visit. We had our groceries delivered by a supermarket home delivery service which added to the convenience for us. Highly recommended.

What a lovely holiday at 'The Malthouse' this summer. Perfect size for the six of us and Barney, our lab. The house is well-equipped and decorated to a very high standard with loads of space but still cosy. It's a peaceful rural gem within easy reach of holiday spots. We were spoilt for choice - stunning coastal walks, safe beaches for the children and dog and lovely for picnics. Salcombe is nearby, an easy walk away with lots of great places to eat and shops to browse. We will definitely be returning
