A charming 'Beach House' style two bedroom log cabin with decking & garden area
About Roger Green
Myself (Roger), my partner Jenny and our kids, Alyshia and Leon currently live in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex.
Roger Green purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Roger Green chose Thurlestone
We had been holidaying in the area for some years and would love to have found a bolt-hole but everything was too expensive or just didn't appeal. The moment we drove down the lane into the valley and saw Toad Hall we knew it was the right place, the destiny that we had been waiting to come along. It captured our hearts from that moment and we love it more with each visit and miss it when we are not there.
What makes this Cabin unique
It has just about everything.... in the countryside with great walks yet also really close to some of the most beautiful and diverse coastline in the country (my main hobby is kayaking so it is ideally placed for that). Incredibly quiet with great starlit skies at night. Lots of wildlife. Some fabulous towns and villages close by.

An Excellent Retreat.
This is an excellent rural retreat, set in a small tree-lined valley with only a handful of similar properties nearby. A log-cabin type bungalow with a veranda where I could sit, read or just day-dream with a glass of wine. Nearby Bantham beach is just lovely and we explored that part of the Devon coast. We did enjoy our stay.
Home from home
A lovely little cabin in a beautiful location Very quit and secluded great for a get away from it all retreat.
Well-equipped lodge in an idyllic, tranquil valley
We really enjoyed our stay here. The surroundings were very peaceful and picturesque. It was nice waking up to the sound of song thrushes and lambs. The PS3 and ample supply of Marvel (and other) films on Blu-Ray and DVD kept us entertained - I think we watched all the Marvel films! We enjoyed our walk down to Bantham beach, crabbing at Dartmouth (twice), and visits to Salcombe, Slapton, and Kingsbridge - the latter to buy more bird seed for the many different finches, tits, blackcap, woodpecker (and squirrels) that would regularly empty the feeders! We went to see the alpacas on the farm. We also visited a farm that cultivated chillies - we are now growing some too! The grassed area outside the lodge was great for ball games, and we made use of the picnic bench in the garden and the decked seating area to eat outside, or enjoy a drink, and watch the birds. We would definitely stay here again. A great place to get away from it all, with many beaches and harbours nearby to explore. Thank you for allowing us to share a little slice of your rural paradise!
Mini break at Bantham
Well equipped cosy cabin , in a lovely setting. The property is set in a secluded valley, but close to local beauty spots. A lovely place to visit, with fabulous scenery and great walks. A great base to travel around.
Nicely presented and well equipped property in lovely location
This was our second visit so must have liked it!
A wonderful Coastal Retreat!
We just loved ‘Toad Hall’ it was even better than we expected. Very comfortable, clean and well furnished; it looks and feels like a giant beach hut! I have stayed in lots of self catering accommodation over the years and can honestly say this was the best equipped of any l have stayed in - the owners thought of everything. Beautiful/peaceful surroundings too and a great base for exploring the South Hams (Burgh Island is well worth a visit and Bantham is a fabulous beach). Thanks Rog and Jen for making it so welcoming, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it and hope to stay again. Sue.
Bantham has a large, unspoilt sandy beach with views to Burgh Island and Bigbury on sea. It is perfect for families, surfers, body boarders, kayaking and walkers. The South West coast path is accessed from the beach with walks to secluded coves, pretty villages such as Thurlestone, Modbury and Hope Cove and the vibrant yachting town of Salcombe. Dogs are permitted on the beach year round, but in the summer season are restricted to the Ham and the western end of the beach (large area of sand at low tide). RNLI lifeguards patrol throughout the summer, and there is a surfing school based at the beach. (See following link for Magic Seaweed surf update and webcam...http://magicseaweed.com/Bantham-Surf-Report/10/ ). The only other facilities are public toilets, but the village is a few minutes walk and has a shop, cafe and an excellent pub (The Sloop Inn). The cabin is within approximately half an hours drive of Dartmouth, Plymouth and the vast, rugged expanse of Dartmoor. The nearest town is the lovely Kingsbridge which has two supermarkets, a delightful High Street, Doctor's surgery/hospital, cinema and lots of excellent restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways.
