Situated in a very quiet rural location, this detached family property has been renovated and extended to a very high standard. Well-appointed throughout, the spacious holiday property boasts a contemporary interior and has been tastefully furnished. The large, fully enclosed garden enjoys a patio - ideal for al-fresco dining - as well as a delightful sunny aspect. Set in the popular picture-postcard village of Thurlestone, with its pink-washed thatched cottages, and several splendid sandy beaches can be enjoyed less than a mile away. The South West Coastal Path, the longest footpath in Britain, passes close to the village and provides superb walking through stunning and dramatic countryside.Nearby Kingsbridge is a busy market town distinguished by fine Tudor and Georgian buildings, with a largely Elizabethan colonnaded Shambles. A summer ferry runs from here to the sailing and holiday resort of Salcombe, whose calm waters are strewn with small craft, with the ruined Fort Charles at the entrance to the harbour injecting a touch of romance. Just east of Kingsbridge is the lagoon of the Slapton Ley Nature Reserve which supports herons, terns, widgeon and great crested grebes.Further afield is the unique resort of Torquay, where the small marina can seem almost Mediterranean, especially at night when coloured lights festoon the harbour. The large sandy beaches are a major attraction, and there are also several museums, houses and ornamental gardens to explore. Shop 1/2 mile.
