Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • With over 130 acres of sand to explore at low tide and just two miles from the cottages, Mothecombe Beach is a local must for sunny days - it also has an amazing cafe bistro onsite too.

  • If you can handle it, the South Devon Chilli Farm is a fun afternoon out with samples to try in a range of heats - just ask for a swig of milk if you overdo it on the tastings.

  • Go boat spotting and stop off for a pub lunch along the creekside at Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers nearby.

  • Feel the spooky vibes of Dartmoor, the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles.

  • Wherever it’s appropriate, always try any local apple juice or cider washed down with a Devonshire cream tea (the Devon way is cream first, then jam).
