"Sands flanked by rock, with wooded cliffs above – true Devon coastal character . . ."

The wooded cliffs at Bolt Tail form a backdrop to this sandy cove on what is renowned as one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the South Hams. These holiday cottages are set within 100 yards of the safe sandy beach – an unrivalled position for enjoying the seaside, but also perfect for fishing, sailing and water-skiing (with a dinghy-launching slip 200 yards away, and facilities for larger boats at nearby Salcombe). The cottages are in the centre of this charming seaside village, with its pretty thatched cottages, inns, restaurants and small shop within a short walk.

Thurlestone, 2 miles to the west, can be reached either by car or via the coastal path. It boasts yet more expanses of golden sands, a regular feature of this lovely coastline. But, in addition, it has a superb cliff-top links golf course, edged by sandy coves, tennis courts and picturesque streets of thatched cottages overlooking the bay. Kingsbridge, the ‘capital’ of the South Hams, has a good choice of interesting shops, a museum and a sports centre with squash, badminton and bowling. Boating and diving trips can be arranged in the Salcombe Estuary, and boats are available for hire. Within easy driving distance are the historic cities of Plymouth and Exeter and Kitley Caves. The wide open spaces and breathtaking scenery of the Dartmoor National Park are less than an hour by car, and there are many National Trust properties, stately homes and interesting gardens within a short drive. Anchor Cottages are set in a little terrace in the village. They have been designed to offer ‘upside-down’ accommodation, with first floor living rooms. Comfortably furnished, each has a small first floor sitting-out area with furniture. They are ideally located for a Devon holiday by the sea. Shop/P.O. 50 yards.

Marine Villa Ref: PJJO

Offering spectacular sea views over Sandown Bay towards Culver Cliff, this magnificent villa was built in 1929, as a gentlemen’s residence. Noted local architect, Ernest Smith, was commissioned to take full advantage of the cliff-top location and exceptionally sunny climate to produce one of the Isle of Wight’s premium properties. He designed a grand detached house with decadently proportioned rooms; all main living and bedrooms have large windows topped by stained glass detail, framing the vistas. Art Deco influences include an upstairs sun room with huge sliding picture windows to enjoy the breathtaking sunrises and scenery by day and bay illuminations by night. Huge stained glass windows bring out the oak-panelled hallway, magnificent staircase and galleried landing. The house has an impressive triple aspect drawing room and large oak-panelled dining-room with doors into the sun room and garden for al-fresco dining. The architecture, proportions and landscaped gardens with palms over the sea are reminiscent of an elegant Mediterranean villa.

Cliff-top walks begin from the garden gate; the tarmac cliff path enables people of all ages and abilities to take a stroll, five minutes to the sandy beaches. The cliff forms a backdrop to a long sandy Blue Flag award-winning beach that extends from Sandown to Shanklin. Swimming and watersports are supported by lifeguards in summer. For those who can tear themselves away from the beach, the area around Sandown Bay is renowned for its fossils, and ¼ mile away from the house lays Shanklin with its charming, historic village, thatched cottages, tea rooms, small shops, seafront train service and lift to the cliff path. For the more energetic, there are longer walks from home, through chines and parkland landslips, to Ventnor, for a well-deserved hearty meal at a renowned inn. There are over 500 miles of footpaths and cycle tracks on the island, half of which is designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The island offers opportunities to explore geological sites, such as the Needles a short drive away, or Smuggler’s Cove closer to home. Shanklin Chine and Ventnor Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and provide a good chance of spotting the endangered red squirrel and Glanville Fritillary butterfly, unique to the island. Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle (English Heritage), Mottistone House (National Trust), Brading Roman Villa, Dinosaur Isle and the Steam Railway are but a few of the island’s attractions for all ages. Shops ¼ mile, pubs
½ mile.

The Roundhouse Ref: TKL

This spacious, detached holiday cottage has views across to Porthcothan Bay and is a short walk to the beautiful sandy beach of Porthcothan which is flanked by sand dunes. The Roundhouse has been converted with a light and airy feel and provides spacious accommodation. The kitchen/dining room faces the terraced enclosed garden and patio, where steps lead down to an enclosed round pond. The original roundhouse forms the very comfortable living room which has a wood-burning stove and provides access to the conservatory and the sunny patio which is ideal for a morning cup of coffee or alfresco dining. The enclosed garden enjoys views to the neighboring farmland and countryside. The owners own the field adjoining the property which guests can use for activities like ball games. Close by are a number of sandy beaches ideal for a family day out. Also within easy reach are Port Isaac, a pretty fishing village made famous by the TV series Doc Martin, Tintagel, the mythical home of King Arthur, and Padstow, with its working harbour, array of shops, pubs and restaurants, including Rick Stein’s famous fish restaurant. It is a short drive to Watergate Bay where Jamie Olivers’ Fifteen restaurant can be found and a beautiful long sandy beach, ideal for surfing and body boarding, and Newquay, the home of surfing with the famous Fistral Beach, is nearby. Also in Newquay are a number of attractions including the zoo, the Blue Reef Aquarium and its numerous sandy beaches. Shop 400 yards, pub 200 yards.
