Bayview, a tastefully converted coastguard cottage, is perched on the cliffs at Hallsands in South Devon and boasts breathtaking sea views from the lighthouse, across the wide sweep of Start Bay to Dartmouth in South Devon. The cottage provides comfortable seaside accommodation with fantastic views from every window. The nearby, historic ruined village of Hallsands is well worth a visit or explore the famous South West Coastal Path, which is right on the doorstep. Alternatively, the family can pack up and head to the beach for the day, which is only a short walk away and this is a perfect place to enjoy sea kayaking, as kayaks can be carried down and secured at North Hallsands beach. Enjoy a refreshing drink and a delicious meal at the Cricket Inn at Beesands or venture further afield to the excellent seafood restaurant, The Start Bay Inn at Torcross. Bayview, a perfect base for a seaside holiday, is a very well equipped, practical family home in a fantastic location and benefits from a large, private garden that can easily entertain the children for hours, so the parents can enjoy sipping wine and relaxing in front of the views when they have tired of the outdoors.
