Situated in a magical position overlooking the sea and a short stroll to a sheltered, sandy bay with cliffs on either side. This former coastguard cottage offers games room with 3D SkyTV (movies and sports)

This former coastguard cottage is a spectacular property affording stunning views and impressive facilities within. It is situated in an idyllic position overlooking the sea and only a quarter of a mile to the sheltered, sandy bay of Bovisand. The cottage offers year-round appeal, with everything you’ll need to enjoy a comfortable break. Located as it is within a beautiful corner of Devon, there’s also plenty to explore beyond the immediate area.

 

Relax on the patio and terraced garden area and delight in the striking views across the bay. Stunning seaside vistas are also enjoyed from the majority of the bedroom windows. What better way to start your day as you open the curtains, or enjoy the lights twinkling across the water before retiring to a plush, comfortable bed. On chilly days and nights, the wood burner offers cosiness and warmth, distinctively double sided so that it heats both the kitchen and the lounge. There is easily enough space and all the facilities you need to prepare, cook, serve and eat comfortably in the fabulous kitchen/diner. There will be no bored youngsters here, as the cottage also boasts its own games room with large TV with full Sky 3D (movies and sports), Xbox, PS4 and games.

 

This is a perfect area for walkers and their four-legged friends, along coastal paths and inland routes. A local shop and pub are also within a 2-mile walk.

We had the most fantastic week of blue skies and sunshine and the views were breathtaking. We felt that we were in the mediterranean. The dogs loved sitting up on the patio watching people on the beach. We did some lovely walks along the coastal path and had some great lunches in the local pubs. The house was very comfortable and clean.

The cottage is in a fabulous location overlooking the sea and has plenty of amenities for families. There is a cafe nearby which is lovely. Some steep steps to get to the beach but very manageable. We had a lovely week in Coastguards cottage. Even when the rain and wind hit it was lovely to watch the sea from the windows.

We have stayed all over the UK and this is our favourite ever. If I could I would buy this property over any other to live out my days. it is simply stunning. We spent hours watching the ever changing view. Ships, boats, boards, birds could be seen and the sunset meant we did not watch many of the TVs. Even bad weather is a delight in this cottage.Read more The only negative is the steps, at the cottage and down to the wonderful beach. However the hight is what gives the view, hope to be back.
