Sail Cottage is a delightful fisherman's cottage in a prime seaside location in the picturesque coastal village of Beesands, South Devon. Wake-up to the sights and sounds of the sea lapping onto the pebbled beach a few yards from the bedroom windows. The cottage has been tastefully decorated throughout, and reflects a sympathetic modernisation, whilst retaining lots of character. Solid oak floors and warm cosy lighting are complemented by the owner's tasteful nautical theme. An additional feature of this cottage is its charming rear garden. Spend the day exploring the coves of Start Bay via the coastal path which runs directly in front of the cottage; and in the evening stroll a hundred yards to the local pub, or alternatively snuggle up in front of the welcoming wood stove. Beesands retains its fishing heritage, and provides a peaceful location to which enjoy a beach holiday or a base to explore the South Hams coastline.
