White Horses is a handsome, detached 19th Century property set in the beautiful South Devon village of Bantham, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Situated just a stone’s throw from the long sandy beach - a surfer’s paradise, and the iconic Burgh Island, this much loved holiday home offers flexible accommodation for large groups or families and provides a fabulous base from which to enjoy this stunning location any time of year.
Immersed in the village, with stunning coastal views from many of the rooms, there is simply no better place to relax and unwind than here, beside the sea, at White Horses.
Please note: there is a secluded lodge tucked privately behind the property, occasionally visited by one of the owners.

Wonderful property for multigenerational stay. We were 11 adults from age 20 to 81. We also had three dogs and the walking was convenient and good. The wild flowers were beautiful and I have never seen bluebells so close to a beach before. Also a special mention for the shop (perhaps a 100 yards away for breakfast and papers etc.) And the pub The Sloop which was even closer offering lovely generous food and the dogs were welcome. The view over the estuary to Burgh Island was outstanding and ever changing with the tide .
