Tastefully refurbished, within metres of the beach, and with gorgeous views over Slapton Ley. This lovely detached couples’ hideaway in the small South Hams village of Torcross, is what dreamy coastal getaways are all about.

Set over two floors, Swan’s Nest offers an attractive master bedroom with shower room on its ground floor, and a terrific open plan living room with kitchen and dining on the first. The upper floor makes the most of its beautiful views over the ley, and a chaise positioned under the window means guests have the perfect spot from which to enjoy them.

Designed with comfort in mind, the cottage is both stylish and well kitted-out. The bedroom is attractively furnished with a king size bed and lots of storage, the bathroom is contemporary with a double walk-in cubicle, and the kitchen has a full range of appliances including a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There’s a big flat screen TV in the lounge for evening entertainment, and of course plenty of space to relax and unwind in after days spent out exploring the coast.

Torcross is uniquely positioned on the Devonshire coastline, with the village splicing the landscape between its freshwater Ley and its 3-mile shingle beach. There are beautiful walks in the area including the scenic coast path route to Beesands, Hallsands and Start Point. Virtually equidistant from the towns of Dartmouth and Kingsbridge there’s plenty to see and do. Waterborn SUP on the Kingsbridge Estuary offers paddleboarding excursions for all ages and abilities, and the town is awash with antique shops, art galleries, and gift shops. In the opposite direction on the River Dart, the historic naval town of Dartmouth is crammed with first-class restaurants and riverside eateries. Visitors can enjoy day trips around its Royal Naval College as well as perusing its boutiques and independent shops.

Torcross itself is home to the seafront Start Bay Inn, so for a good old fashioned pub lunch (the battered cod and chip is huge) it’s ideal. Slightly further afield but not by much, Stokeley Farm Shop is a great spot for stocking up on locally made gifts and homegrown produce. They also serve a delicious full English and fresh wood-fired pizzas but be sure to get there early as it’s popular!
