About Steve and Shirley Bradley
We are farmers , holiday home owners living in the beautiful South Hams near Salcombe. We have lived here on our farm for 30 years, raising 5 daughters and many South Devon cattle and Dorset sheep.!We have had a holiday cottage letting business for many years on the Farm and have enjoyed making many new friends from these over the years! I was brought up in South East Cornwall, we can see the Rame Peninsular from our chalet and we enjoy looking across and remembering a very happy childhood there.!The chalet at Bovisand is enjoyed by our daughters and their families , especially on sunny days and when it is not let we often drive down to enjoy lunch on our terrace with our family and friends (when we can spend some time away from the needs of our animals and farm guests!) We particularly like the everchanging sea view, watching the huge Brittany ferries coming and going and the naval operations happening with the arrival and departure of the naval warships, frigates, submarines, naval helicopters ,etc in Plymouth sound.
Steve and Shirley Bradley purchased this Chalet in 2017
Why Steve and Shirley Bradley chose Plymouth
The whole of the South Devon, South Hams coastline is unspoilt ,wild and beautiful. The chalet is very well located for exploring South Devon generally and by using the Torpoint ferry or Tamar bridge to explore into South East Cornwall. Or you can just lay on the loungers on the terrace, do nothing and enjoy the exceptional views and quiet location. Plymouth is nearby for shopping, a huge choice of restaurants, shops, a fabulous waterfront, cinemas, Theatre etc for any not so good weather days when you dont want to go down to the unspoilt sandy coves right below the chalet.
What makes this Chalet unique
Truly exceptional views, a very friendly and well looked after small private chalet park , a bit like stepping back into the 1950 s for oldfashioned values, considerate neigbours and a very safe atmosphere throughout the development.

The Chalet has all that you could ever wish for on a holiday of this kind and more. So very well equipped and maintained, comfortable warm and cosy. Magnificent view of the Plymouth breakwater and ships and surrounding area. Lovely beaches clear blue sea and many footpaths coastal and countryside. The owners are extremely attentive and kind and easy to speak too.
A lovely warm welcome is assured from Denise and Pete who helped us settle in and made us a very welcome cup of tea ,thank you all so very much for allowing us to stay in your lovely chalet and for the amazing attention we received. Did we enjoy our stay ? You bet every single minute .
We had such a lovely stay at the chalet, communication with Shirley was excellent and Denise in the chalet next door was so lovely and helpful with check in. The view was simply stunning especially in the sunshine, a very relaxing break, the beach directly in front if the property was quiet and lovely, I even had a dip! Lots to do with the children in the surrounding area. They spent most of their days beach combing and rockpooling and body boarding and were more than happy, then enjoyed the wifi in the evening!! The chalet itself was beautifully furnished and clean. Would definitely recommend. Thank you!
Such a beautiful retreat
We had such a fantastic stay, we were so well looked after. The view is even better than pictures could capture. You will enjoy peace, tranquility and magnificent sunsets. Thank you for such a fantastic trip.
Thank you for your lovely review ,it was a pleasure to have you and your family staying at our property and we are pleased it was a special experience for you all.
You are correct, it is very difficult to capture the amazing view and ,as you will have seen, its a view that changes constantly so there are always new opportunities for another photo!
Immaculate chalet in great location.
From the initial warm welcome with tea and biscuits to the final moments this is a lovely place to stay. The wonderful views of Plymouth Sound are unparalleled .They are are constant source of interest either from the terrace or from inside the chalet. The chalet itself is tastefully furnished and beautifully clean. It has all we needed for a totally relaxing self catering stay.The beds are extremely comfortable too. The beach is immediately below the chalet and access is by steep steps and a slight scramble at the bottom. There is an allocated parking space and Bovisand is a good base for driving into Plymouth, Dartmoor, or further along the coast.You will find it hard though to tear yourself away from the view!
Thank you for your lovely review, as you say ,the chalet has an amazing view from most of the rooms and the terrace and we are so pleased you found it such a comfortable base for your holiday.Our family favourite is the sandy beach below our chalet but , as you probably noticed, there are several other beaches in the same bay accessed by other paths, also one sandy public beach just outside of the entrance gate of the estate which can be accessed without going down significant changes of ground level. This beach is near the cafe and is just out of sight of the chalet.
We would love to see you again one day if you fancy another break in the beautiful South Hams.
great location, lovely view, comfortable and very clean has everything we needed for the 4 of us.
The chalet was perfect for the few days that we spent at Bovisand. It has one of the best views of the bay, lots to see with the sea just below you and boats coming and going. Great coastal walks and small rocky bays to explore.
We are very pleased you obviously so enjoyed your short break at the chalet.
We agree it has one of the best views of the sea ,truly panoramic and the little coves of Bovisand and lovely coastline to be explored from the South Devon Coastal Path are easily accessible direct from the chalet.
We are also very pleased you found the chalet comfortable, very clean and well provided with everything you needed for your holiday.!
Beautiful location, comfy chalet, warm welcome
The people in the chalet next door had the key and give us a very warm welcome, explaining everything about the chalet and parking. They even ensured the kettle was full and boiling, with biscuits at ready.
The chalet is well equipped and has everything we needed. The bed and duvet as comfortable as our bed at home. Not often you can say that when sleeping away.
Quite simply there is nothing we didn't like.
Thank you so much for your lovely review and I know our neighbours you refer to will be delighted you enjoyed your stay so much. We love our chalet and still get a thrill every time we drive down the entrance lane to the estate and see the amazing view of Plymouth Sound , the huge horizon and across to South East Cornwall.
I hope you managed to see a lovely sunset from the chalet terrace as well.!
Within about 20 mins drive are all the normal attractions of a big city, including a fantastic waterfront with restaurants, boattrips across to Cornwall, boattrips up the river Tamar and boat hire and sea fishing available. The Barbican with its historic sights and buildings is really worth a visit. There is a regular bus service to Plymouth City centre from near Bovisand Fort., about 10 mins walk from the chalet
