    “The cottage was lovely and the facilities provided in it were probably the best we have ever experienced.”

    It was lovely and quiet and out of the way. ...

    It was lovely and quiet and out of the way. It is an ideal place as a base for coast walkers. As with everywhere at the moment, the COVID restrictions meant limited access to the pub and village store, but there is nothing anyone can do about that at the moment. The one drawback for us (70 years of age) was the drive down the narrow roads/lanes from the nearest town of Kingsbridge, and negotiating with other vehicles, some of which drove far too fast for the conditions, but I suppose the locals know the route. Not good for someone who is slower behind the wheel of a car. We had to leave early on account of my health (I am a recovering cancer patient), which was a pity.

About the location


East Portlemouth 2 miles; Hallsands 4 miles; Beesands; Start Point 5 miles.

East Prawle is a small village near Prawle Point, the most southerly tip of Devon near Salcombe, in the beautiful South Hams area. East Prawle has a charming, traditional village pub overlooking the green, a useful shop, and is renowned for its stunning coastline, popular with yachting enthusiasts. The sheltered South Hams peninsula is in 'deepest Devon', a pastoral landscape of flowering hedgerows and ancient sunken lanes, carved into by the richly wooded Avon and Dart Valleys. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is decorated with white, pink and ochre thatched cottages, picturesque fishing ports such as Dartmouth, and the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe. Much of the cliff top land has been acquired by the National Trust and is peppered with perfect picnic spots, a walker’s paradise. East Prawle is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of Devon and the South Hams, all year round.

Note: Arrival after 4pm.
