For those who love the thrill of the coast, there is everything from gentle coastal walks to sailing, surfing and fishing. Meanwhile others will enjoy days spent pottering and exploring the areas of Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth.

 

Thurlestone is a haven for its rocky coves or vast expanse of golden sands with some truly wonderful seaside locations to explore right on our doorstep. Thurlestone Beach is just a brief walk away from the cottage and provides a beautifully clean area for swimming, surfing or rock-pooling and popular with surfers and families all year round.
