Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at The Anchorage, and it was comfortable for all 5 of us. It was very clean, well equipped and the garden was a sun trap. The nearby beaches are great and as long as you have a car there are lots of places to visit. It was very peaceful and quiet, and I would stay there again.

See Fishing4Sport "Devon knows why Bassing is so good!". Basically nothing is too much trouble and they will organise anything can be organised, from a single angler who wants corned-beef sandwiches, to eight anglers requiring a Champagne lunch every day on the boat

Coast/Beach:

The wide sandy beach of Wonwell is within walking distance or Bigbury on Sea offers plenty of opportunities for safe fun particularly if you’ve got children in tow. It is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of creepy-crawly entertainment for budding marine biologists and there’s a wide and varied selection of water sports available If you want to try something different from the usual body boarding or surfing then windsurfing and kite-surfing have hire facilities located on the beach.
