Why visit Thurlestone?

Thurlestone is a coastal village that takes its name from the arch shaped rock jutting out from the sea - the name Thirl meaning small hole. Thurlestone is a very pretty location with a number of thatched cottages dating back to the 17th century. 

The village has two beaches that are both ideal for families. Thurlestone Beach has clear blue water, golden sands and is manned by lifeguards in the summer months. It is also dog-friendly all year round. South Milton Sands is a popular surfing haunt and is also a great place to spot seals and dolphins. 

The coastline provides a dramatic setting to play links golf. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the 18-hole course sits above Bigbury Bay, providing stunning views of the whole area. The facility also has ten grass tennis and two hard tennis courts.
