The Area - South Devon

A ten minute walk will find you on the beach at Beesands and also on the South West coastal path which leads from the well known village of Hallsands to hidden coves and the most southerly point in Devon, Prawle Point, which is home to the rare Bunting. 

Just a few miles to the east you will find the historic navel town of Dartmouth. Set on the banks of the estuary of the River Dart Dartmouth was of strategic importance as a deep-water port for sailing vessels. The narrow mouth of the Dart is protected by two fortified castles, Dartmouth Castle and Kingswear Castle. Today the town is better known for its vibrant streets with its arty shops and a great selection of very good restaurants.

A few miles to the west is Kingsbridge, a busy market town which is well worth a visit. Four miles further on is Salcombe with its delightful harbour and choice of beaches and coves to explore. Salcombe is a beautiful place and is extremely popular with visitors throughout the summer months meaning the park and ride service is highly recommended.

Golf Breaks South Devon

There are three very notable Golf Courses within easy reach of Huccombe House, these are at Thurlestone, Dartmouth and Bigbury  (pictured below)

Further afield approximately a forty minute drive from Huccombe House, South Devon Bed and Breakfast, you can find yourself in the southern edges of Dartmoor. Here you can see crystal clear rivers and streams, cross an ancient clapper bridge, explore mystical Tors and monuments or just marvel at the leisurely pace of the Dartmoor ponies as they go about their business. 

After a day of exploration you may wish to visit our local pub the Cricket Inn which is less than a mile away and is renowned for its real ales, locally caught fish and shellfish dishes. Finally retire to the peaceful comfort of your room at Huccombe House to plan tomorrow’s delights.
