South Devon is one of the most famous of English holiday regions. It offers ample opportunities to walk, sail, surf, windsurf, fish, ride and golf.
In the holiday season, there are craft markets, open air theatres and choral concerts while out to sea, one can meet porpoises, dolphins and whales. The area is rich in birdlife including cirl bunting, egrets, peregrines, sparrowhawks and buzzards.
Near the house are lovely, sheltered beaches of Smalls Cove, Mill Bay and Sunny Cove. The unusually clear, almost tropical water attracts divers to explore the seabed and the many shipwrecks of the area.
