The Cowshed is a gorgeous 2-bedroom, detached property with a lovely open living area, with a private deck and garden. Set amongst fields, just up the road from the lovely village of Bantham, with The Sloop Inn and village shop, and perfectly located for the amazing beaches of Bantham, Thurlestone and Bigbury-On-Sea, as well as for exploring Hope Cove, Burgh Island, Salcombe, Dartmouth and the amazing coastline of the South Hams, not to forget beautiful Dartmoor.

The space
Sleeping up to 5, with dogs’ welcome, The Cowshed is a perfect place for couples, families, surfers & walkers alike. Restored to a high standard, The Cowshed provides light, bright, contemporary accommodation with a fully enclosed garden, decked patio with gas BBQ, and bi-fold doors bringing the outside in when the sun is out and with a log-burner and comfy sofas for cooler evenings.

The large, open-plan kitchen and living area provides for plenty of social space, with high ceilings and exposed beams. The kitchen area is fully equipped with cooker, hob, fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher as well as a Nespresso coffee maker for your morning coffee and nutribullet for your morning home-made smoothies.

Light the fire, with the logs provided for your first evening (during the winter), sit back and enjoy a little chill out time. Listen to some tunes by linking your phone to the Bose Bluetooth speaker. A large dining table opens up to seat six or relax on the sofas in front of the TV (including DVD player). Opening the bi-fold doors takes you out onto your private enclosed deck with patio table and chairs to relax in the outdoors, or cook on the gas BBQ and enjoy the stunning views down the valley.

In front of the living area is a private lawned garden with great views down the valley and fully enclosed to keep in dogs and kids safe.

A hallway takes you to both the bedrooms, one with a comfy kingsize double-bed, the other with two-singles. Both bedrooms have blackout blinds. There is a truckle-bed in the twin bedroom that can be made up if needed. Beds have lovely, professionally laundered fresh white linen ready for your arrival and large, fluffy bathroom towels for all guests.

The modern stylish bathroom has a rainfall shower over the bath with plenty of hot water for when you get back from the beach, as well as a heated floor and heated towel rail. Shower gel and soap is provided and a washing machine to provide home-from-home.

In case it gets chilly, the property has central heating with radiators in every room. Or just light the fire in the log-burner and curl-up on the sofas.

Where you’ll be

Kingsbridge, Bantham, United Kingdom

Set in an amazing location - the property looks out onto fields with alpacas, sheep, ponies and cattle. Unbelievably peaceful and unspoilt. Sunrises and star-gazing right outside your door. We are one mile from Bantham beach, undoubtedly one of the best sandy beaches in the country, with great surf and water sports. It has won awards from the Marine Conservation Society and has the coveted Blue Flag. Great food and drinks can be enjoyed from the Gastrobus or get active with Bantham Surf Academy where you can hire wetsuits, surfboards, SUPS and arrange lessons.
