Other things to note

The accommodation comprises of a newly built large 3 bedroomed contemporary detached house in the glorious South Hams.

The house is situated 150m from Challaborough beach which is a blue flag beach and attended by life guards during the holiday season (May to September). The sandy beach is also on the south west coast path which has been voted 'Britain's Best Walking route twice in a row by readers of the Ramblers Walk magazine, and regularly features in lists of the world's best walks.

Bigbury on sea and the fantastic Burgh island with its pub can accessed at low tide and is roughly five minutes walk away around the headland. The dramatic island and its art deco hotel have been used as setting for many television dramas. In the opposite direction you can discover the rugged Ayrmer Cove which is a 15 -20 minutes walk towards Mothecombe.

On the Challaborough beachfront you will find a local minimarket stocking summer goods and essentials, a friendly rustic café serving takeaway fish and chips, and a licenced waterfront bar and restaurant. Large supermarkets (Tesco and Morrison’s) can be found in the nearby market town of Kingsbridge (8 miles) as well as a bustling high street.

Other local amenities include friendly golf clubs at Bigbury and Thurlestone, a water sports school in the nearby Bigbury on sea. Local traditional village pubs serving food also can be found in nearby Ringmore, St Anns Chapel, Bantham and Kingston. The popular Oyster Shack is also very close.

The surrounding area is recognised for it’s outstanding natural beauty with many country walks to be enjoyed using the house as a base without the need to drive at all.

A short drive away are the pretty towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth and Totnes for sightseeing, shopping and days out. A huge selection of award winning beaches can be discovered nearby including Thurlestone, Bantham (best beach in UK - Lonely planet 2015), Mothecombe as well as the quaint Hope Cove.

The property is eminently suited for a wonderful family holiday and comfortably sleeps 6 although special arrangements will have to be made for 6 adults.
Travel cot plus bedding, high chair and safety gate are all provided if required.

The house has Wi fi coverage.

Please note that the house is part of a working site with the final phase of building still in progress, as the first to be built we are some way from the works and as such it does not really affect our home. The area still being worked will be cordoned off.

A very well equipped modern home within a few minutes walk of the beach. The house is light, airy and open plan, with good size bedrooms and very comfortable beds and duvets. We slept so well! The location is perfect for costal walks and the perfect place for a relaxing break.

The very contemporary house was warm, comfortable and a delight to stay in. We had everything we needed and more. The lovely beach was close enough to run down and jump in the sea before breakfast. Having arrived in the dark we were quite surprised to see the proximity of the holiday park which was our main view, having expected a sea view, but it did not detract in any way from our enjoyment.

This is such a fab property in a lovely spot. The close proximity to the beach makes it perfect for children and with Bigbury and Bantham so close at hand, there's lots of variety if you want to travel further afield. The property itself is really well equipped - plenty of bedding and towels and a well-stocked kitchen, which makes such a difference from some self-catering places we've stayed in previously. A minor detail - the bedrooms are extremely light so if travelling with young children it's worth bringing black-out blinds (Groblinds with window suckers) as our son didn't go to sleep until well after 9pm each night. The stair gate also doesn't fit the top of the stairs so worth bringing your own or being very vigilant. That aside we had a lovely time and found the house a home-from-home and, by and large, hassle-free.

The house is beautiful, spacious and clean. The photos do not do it justice. Everything you could need was provided- we even found toys and books for the kids which we were not expecting. Challaborough bay is a decent beach and is 1 minute walk away. Bigborough is a better beach (bigger and nicer sand)- 10-15 minutes along the coast path with toddlers, would be quicker for adults. Our 3 year old also managed the coast path to Ayrmer Cove - about a mile with some slopes. Access to the area is along single track roads for the last couple of miles which can be difficult but this would be the same for anywhere right on the coast. There is enough to keep small kids entertained within reasonable driving distance.

What a fantastic place and location. The house is new, clean and exceptionally equipped and we were lucky enough to be able to use the decking for a fair few meals and to chill out in between walks and plenty of trips to the beach. The local shops offer enough for day to day needs and fresh patties and coffee in the mornings. Nearby restaurants are basic but further afield there are some fantastic options. The local scenery is amazing and there are lots of watersport options in the bay or round the corner. Jean and George were really welcoming and helpful, and left lots of information to help plan our stay. A great holiday and a great home.
