5 Beachdown

Sleeps 8
2 dogs
4 bedrooms
2 bathrooms

Just 150 yards from the lovely sandy beach in Challaborough is this contemporary detached house in a little gated collection of 12. Designed ‘upside down’ to create a light and spacious living area with a nautical theme, this is high quality and beautiful seaside accommodation with eco-friendly credentials. From the hall, stairs sweep up directly into the stunning open plan living space where you can chill out in the comfy seating area, cook in the well equipped and fresh kitchen area and gather together around the central table for fun family meals. You will find the four bedrooms on the ground floor, all peaceful and comfortable with stylish fabrics and clever bespoke blinds, together with the smart family bathroom tiled in cool limestone. From the dining area you can fold back big doors on a sunny day to reveal the private terrace for enjoying alfresco meals and head up steps to an enclosed roof garden where you can stretch out on loungers and listen to the sea. To enjoy the beach, you only need to wander out in wetsuits and flip-flops and you will find yourself on the big sandy Blue Flag beach where you can paddle, build sandcastles and surf or bodyboard. For surfing tuition or hire, the popular surf school at Bigbury-on-Sea is just over the little headland. If you don't feel like cooking, you can buy fish and chips in the summer from the café or a trip to nearby Ringmore is worthwhile for an excellent meal or a pint of real ale in its friendly, characterful pub. Walkers will be in seventh heaven on the South West Coast Path or strolling across the sand to Burgh Island with its views from the ruined huers’ hut on the peak. 5 Beachdown is an excellent house in prime position for a fun family holiday by the sea.

“We stayed here as a family of 4 with 2 dogs the first week of October and wow what a beautiful house it is. Everything you can think of has been included to make to stay luxurious but easy at the same time. We were welcomed by tea bags, sugar, coffee, milk, prosecco and cake (all essentials in our opinion!). The house was spotlessly clean and ultra modern with the most amazing views over the surrounding land with a little glimmer of the sea. The only let down is the VERY rural access to the village, which does take some getting used too. The house is situated less than a 5 minute walk from a breath taking beach that is dog friendly (October May), it is surrounded by some lovely coastal walks as well as a chip shop, pub and local shop. We had a lovely relaxing break away here and enjoyed visiting Dartmouth prison museum, the Golden Hind Ship and the Stream River round robin. A meal at the Pickwick Inn is a must if you're staying here.”
