“Me and my 2 dogs loved our jolly’s just relaxing by the sea listening to the waves walking round the Ley pond ,and at night went out the front laid on the wall looking at the stars
Will say if you struggle walking this place is great very flat until you go inland,
Not far up the road is a farm shop the staf were very welcoming and lemon cake to die for, got a few pressies to bring back, I don’t drink alcohol but brought some pink gin, am sure I will find someone who enjoys it
Everyone so friendly and helpful
I did contact Sykes to see if I could stay another week but it is fully booked for the whole of May, no surprise there the visitors book is very interesting to read a lot saying how great it was over the Xmas / New Year,
Will book again but for longer next time
But at the end of April be warned the first week of May there are a lot of miggies
This place is a bird watchers paradise they even have a hut for the watchers also public loos which are so clean and open all the time
Couldn’t believe it not only open but stacked up with loo rolls, you would get that in many places
Also the doggie poo bins so clean I kept saying to people about how clean they were , they just looked at me as if I were strange
Would advise anyone wanting to go this area of Devon it brill loads of places to visit one being Hope Cove”

In Torcross, a charming first-floor apartment, one of three created with much flair by the owner and looking straight to the beach and out to sea: a lovely view. The seafront road is traffic-free, except for access. From a small, enclosed courtyard (table/chairs, shared access), own outside stairs (partial handrail only) up to porch, front door and hall. Living room with woodburner, breakfast bar/stools, TV/DVD, door to balustrade and that lovely view; this is divided from the kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) by a semi-open old timber and plaster screen. Pretty double bedroom (5' bed) and bathroom (suite, shower over bath). A magical place to stay and remarkably peaceful for a prime seafront position.
Torcross: village (shops, PO, pub, restaurants, chapel) of fishermen's old cottages and Victorian houses at the southern end of Slapton Sands and the fresh
water lagoon of Slapton Ley. Beautiful, unspoilt coast and country (hilly farmland,
