Why Melissa chose Torcross
Start Way is a wonderful house just a stone's throw from the beach with views over gorgeous Slapton Ley Nature Reserve and the award winning Torcross/Slapton Sands beach. We have just completely refurbished it and furnished and fully equipped it with lots of brand new shiny things!

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. You must contact the owner directly to request cancellation.
The cottage has really nice accommodations and lovely views. The kitchen is well equipped and bedrooms are large and comfortable.
Just a short walk along the sea front to the local pub and a restaurant. Both are nice, but we did prefer the Pub.
Torcross is the perfect Devon get away. Lots of walks available, and close to larger harbour towns.
