About Felicity Cunliffe-Lister

Married with three children and a family business, we love our holidays at Sharpers House and have designed the interior of the house with holiday lets and families in mind.

Felicity Cunliffe-Lister purchased this house in 2010

Why Felicity Cunliffe-Lister chose Kingsbridge

I grew up in East Prawle and still have family and friends in the village. It is a beautiful location, remote and peaceful.

What makes this house unique

The 180 degree views of the sea are amazing. The house is of modern build and warm and comfortable with big windows. It is set into the cliffs below the village, a short walk away. The access road to the house is private and very quiet, the coastal path is only a field away. Walking, birdwatching, star gazing, fishing off the rocks and beaches are all on your doorstep.

Spacious, comfortable , relaxed feeling to house , in a beautiful location with stunning views .

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of eight old friends who have an annual weekend away. Sharpers House was perfect for us. Being only a short walk to the coastal path made heading out each day very easy . Looking out from the many sea view windows we enjoyed the ever changing beautiful and dramatic skies .

The house was clean , homely, always lots of hot water and plenty of room for us all. We enjoy cooking for ourselves and found the kitchen had everything we needed ( sadly though the Aga didn't heat up , but the electric oven was fine ).

We all loved the house . Thankyou.

Just perfect for our group.

  • 5 of 5

We were six adults and five children and two dogs and we stayed at Sharpers House for a weekend. The house is very spacious and has a lived in quality which meant we were not constantly worrying about what the children were doing. The views and the walks were great. Must stay longer next time!

A large 70s style property with fabulous sea-views

  • 4 of 5

Sharpers is a very big house with more than enough room for the 10 people in our party. In addition to the spacious main kitchen diner and lounge downstairs, there's an additional lounge and kitchen upstairs. Furnishings are dated however the property is clean and tidy.

The small village of East Prawle is a ten minute walk up a steep hill and the centrepoint is the Pigs Nose Inn which is friendly, packed full of character and offers reasonably priced food and drinks.

Access to the coastal path is in front of the house and leads down a stony bridleway to a beach as well as coastal walks farther afield. We enjoyed hunting for crabs, starfish and fish in the rock-pools on the local beach with our 8 and 11 year old boys.

We found the beds and pillows comfortable. A couple of the fixtures, like the patio door and garage door need attention but overall we found the house comfortable, inviting and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

A True Gem

  • 5 of 5

April 17

Once again had a wonderful stay at Sharpers, my family love this house, which is not only cosy but extremely spacious and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. We have been staying here once or twice a year since 2010. The views are stunning and the veranda is great for family gatherings. Once again we were lucky with the weather, sunshine all week! We discovered this wonderful part of the world first in 1967, when we stayed in the Coastguard cottages on the point. Since then we have stayed in several cottages in and around Prawle, year in year out, until we discovered Sharpers, which has become our favourite. This was the 50th anniversary of our 1st visit to Prawle with 41 of the family staying in several cottages in the village. We love the fact that the area has barely changed in all that time and all enjoy the walks along the coastal path and evenings in the Pigs Nose Inn. Looking forward to returning to Sharpers in Sept 17 and hopefully for many more years to come. Thanks Felicity for letting us share this lovely home.
