The South Devon coastline is renowned for spectacular scenery and beaches, stretching from the mouth of the Dart in the east to Plymouth Sound in the west. The nearest beaches at Bantham (Approx. 5 miles) and Slapton Sands (Approx. 6 miles) offer splendid clifftop and coastal walks where you can enjoy the spectacular rugged splendour the South Hams Coastline has to offer.

The popular sailing resort of Salcombe is about 7 miles distant by road, with an excellent range of recreational and shopping facilities and the sandy beaches of East Portlemouth, North Sands and South Sands.
