Local Area

The peaceful and tranquil village of Slapton is just half a mile from the beach at Slapton Sands and lies mid-way between Kingsbridge (6 miles) and Dartmouth (6 miles). A village shop and two good pubs lie within a couple of minutes walk of the cottage.

Slapton is a quaint old village of winding roads and picturesque cottages. Much of the countryside around is leased by the Field Studies Council and is listed as an area of special interest. Slapton Ley with its freshwater lake bordering the coast road, water meadows and marshland provides a home for many migrating and resident birds and is also a bird sanctuary of the National Nature Reserve. Slapton Ley Field Centre organises guided walks and talks and fishing on the Ley.
Slapton Sands, a 3-mile stretch of beach is within walking distance of the cottage. Blackpool Sands, Start Point and Lannacombe Bay are all a short drive away. Alternatively, you can walk the spectacular South West Coast Path between Salcombe and Dartmouth. Details of other attractions within the South Hams area are available for visitors in the cottage. There are numerous places to eat out in the local area - visit our Useful Links page to see some we have selected.
