Many miles of safe, award-winning beaches offer swimming, rockpooling, and sunbathing opportunities, while watersports – particularly surfing, windsurfing, sailing, waterskiing, scuba diving, and parasailing – are popular and widely available. Facilities for sailing, horseriding, tennis, and river- and sea fishing, not to mention two award-winning golf courses, are all within 30 minutes drive of the property.
Walkers and their dogs will appreciate the attractions of miles of quiet lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and the renowned South Devon Coast Path, while stargazers will glory in the complete absence of artificial light, which makes the Milky Way regularly visible with the naked eye. The area is hugely popular with birdwatchers: Start Point is on a major migration route, Slapton Ley is an overwintering spot for rare overseas visitors, and the Cirl Bunting can be spotted at several locations on the farm.
South Devon is at the cutting edge of the Good Food revolution in the UK and there are superb eateries to be found in every town and village, with pub fare that would put many restaurants to shame. Fish and seafood are a speciality in the many fishing villages along the coast, and there are a number of establishments where you can pick your choice from the slab or tank and have it prepared, cooked and served to your table while you wait.
