About this Property

Situated on the edge of the popular village of East Prawle at the southernmost tip of Devon, Skippers is an impressively spacious and comfortable holiday home just a stone's throw from the coast and a short distance from the sandy beaches of the Salcombe estuary.Formally a modern coastguard cottage it boasts a large living room with woodburner stove, five comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms and plenty of parking which includes room for a boat trailer. East Prawle has a lively pub; the Pig's Nose, a cafe and shop and easy access to the South West Coastal Path that meanders along this dramatic coastline.  From the sandy beaches at East Portlemouth you can catch the passenger ferry across the water to bustling Salcombe, where you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to shops, restaurants and traditional inns. This is a thriving boating centre with almost every type of watersport on offer from sailing to scuba diving, although sitting watching all this activity from the waterside Ferry Inn can be just as enjoyable as taking part. If you want to get out and explore, Torcross with its miles of shingle beach and Slapton Ley nature reserve are close by, the historic naval port of Dartmouth is well worth a visit, as is scenic Dartmoor.

“Skippers is perfect - very clean, extremely comfortable, cosy and warm. East Prawle was the perfect location to stay - fantastic coastal walks and within easy reach of some pretty places....Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. Dog will be glad to get home for a rest!”
