    • “Beautiful and quiet place to stay and well situated for visiting much of Devon and Cornwall. However, it is unwise to bring a large vehicle with you as the country lanes around are very narrow as is the entrance to the property.”

    Mrs Ianos, Wayne, September 2018

    • “The accommodation was perfect for us - comfortable, well-equipped and very private, in a beautiful setting. The outstanding memory will be looking at the sunset over the sea from the top of the drive, and also the inspirational garden of Scypen itself, which the owner so kindly showed us.”

    Mr Daniel, August 2018

    • “The owner Ann was very welcoming and the cottage is a stunning design and location which was only spoilt by the sea mist.”

    Mr Bartlett, CROYDON, June 2018

    • “Little Scypen is a delightful property in a peaceful and beautiful village. The furnishings are homemade and are wonderfully unique and charming. Likewise, the owner’s garden is lovely and has novel points of interest. The owner made us very welcome, ensuring we had that everything we needed, but did not intrude on our privacy. Ringmore is a lovely village in a great location, with wildlife in abundance. There are plenty of walking opportunities, both coastal and inland, with lots of hills if you like a challenge. The views make any walk worthwhile. Nearby beaches are all beautiful, all within walking distance. Aymer Cove is tranquil. Although there are no facilities, the beach is very quiet. Good for swimming, but no lifeguard. Challaborough Bay and Bigbury-on-Sea also walkable. Both have catering, toilets and lifeguards. There is a busy caravan park at Challaborough. Journey’s End Inn in Ringmore has great ale and a lovely Sunday roast. Many other attractions nearby within driving distance. We were blessed with stunning weather and had a lovely two weeks. We would like to return again.”

    Dr Mayers, BOURNEMOUTH, July 2018

Regional Information

RINGMORE Bigbury-on-Sea 3 miles; Kingsbridge 7 miles; Salcombe 11 miles; Plymouth 15.5 miles. Ringmore is a small village in Devon, in the South Devon AONB, one mile from the secluded beach and stunning cliffs of Bigbury Bay. The Saxon church of All Hallows stands majestically overlooking this quintessentially English village with thatched cottages and a peaceful rural pace of life. Ringmore is a conservation village and quintessentially English, with thatched cottages, a peaceful rural pace of life, and a 13th century pub, Journeys End Inn, serving cask ales, local produce and a friendly welcome. A comprehensively stocked shop and Post Office is located in St Anne's Chapel, a short drive away and the y are happy to deliver. Three different paths lead down to Ayrmer Cove from the village, and connect with the South West Coast Path. Footpaths lead to Challaborough Bay and to the golden sandy beaches of Bigbury-on-Sea, from which Burgh Island is reached by the famous Sea Tractor. Bigbury-on-Sea beach is ideal for family holidays. Everyone is sure to marvel at the huge expanse of sand, enjoy exploring the rock pools, or sample the varied watersports available to the more active visitors. If you want to try something different from the body boarding or surfing, then windsurfing and kite-surfing are gaining popularity here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. For peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury-on-Sea’s Blue Flag beach from May to September, and a fabulous café specialising in selling organic and local food; whose surf ‘n’ turf is one of the best in the area. A few miles from Ringmore are plenty of delightful South Hams villages, coastal beauty spots and the traditional English market town of Kingbridge on the estuary.
