About the property

6 bedroom house overlooking the beach with spectacular sea views



FOR 2019

- 7 NIGHTS £3,125


Coleridge Place is close to the village of Strete near Dartmouth in South Devon. It is situated in one of the most stunning coastal areas in England and a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.

Positioned above Slapton Sands and the craggy headland that curves around to Start Point Lighthouse - the property has panoramic sea views over Slapton Sands and Slapton Ley freshwater lagoon.

The house is at the end of a private drive and is surrounded by mature gardens and sits within 8 acres of private grounds. A meander through the grounds and a short walk will bring you to the shingle beach at Strete Gate and the award winning beach Blackpool Sands is also nearby.

Situated at the mouth of the River Dart is the historic naval port of Dartmouth with it's wealth of galleries, shops, cafes and restaurants.

Dartmouth is known for it's narrow streets, overhanging medieval houses and old quays with the historic Mayflower having set sail for the New World America from Bayards Cove.

A boat trip up river will take you to Agatha Christie's house "Greenways" and "Coleton Fishacre" once the home of the D'Oyly Carte family is at Kingswear.

Further afield the beautiful beaches of Bantham (our local surfing beach) Bigbury and South Milton as well as Salcombe and Hope Cove are all within striking distance.

Recently renovated in a style best described as vintage-contemporary Coleridge Place retains an old world charm whilst also providing extremely spacious accommodation with spectacular views from bedrooms and living rooms.

Further refurbishment is planned with out-buildings and the exterior of the house still awaiting some attention and a small part of the East wing of the house (three rooms) is closed off awaiting renovation - the weekly rental price has been reduced to reflect this.

For 10 to 12 people this is an ideal opportunity to grab a bargain - shorter lets of 4 days may also be available so please enquire.

Luxury modern Victorian House

  • 5 of 5

Property situated on an elevation with 8 acres of well maintained and mature land. Plenty of hide and seek opportunities or secluded areas to just relax.

Although being refurbished to a high standard, owners accommodated us with ease. Classic decor with high ceilings, natural stripped floor boards and especially a feel of space (well with over 3000sq/m of space, it would be).

Bring your servants, yes they have accommodation in a service quarter where they can be called for service by pulling the call bells in any of the bedrooms.

Breathtaking views of the coastline with a 1 min drive to the pebble beach.

What better way to have a BBQ or fire pit with a glass of wine as the sun goes down whilst you have a great view.

Lovely of the owners to provide a welcome basket of goodies and necessities like milk, fresh coffee and other quality products inc cleaning soaps and the all important loo rolls!

Lots to do in the area, take one of the house kayaks out on the sea or enjoy local produce (land and sea) within a couple miles.
