The wooded cliffs at Bolt Tail form a backdrop to this sandy cove on what is renowned as one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the South Hams. These holiday cottages are set within 100 yards of the safe sandy beach – an unrivalled position for enjoying the seaside, but also perfect for fishing, sailing and water-skiing (with a dinghy-launching slip 200 yards away, and facilities for larger boats at nearby Salcombe). The cottages are in the centre of this charming seaside village, with its pretty thatched cottages, inns, restaurants and small shop within a short walk. The South Devon Coastal Footpath winds along the cliffs and through Hope Cove between Salcombe and Thurlestone, with opportunities for magnificent walking amongst glorious coastal scenery.

The maritime attractions continue slightly further afield. Salcombe, 4 miles away, is one of the most prestigious sailing centres in the country. It offers extensive sandy beaches, too, and a wide choice of fascinating shops, boutiques and restaurants in its quaintly winding narrow streets. The estuary here is a kaleidoscope of brightly coloured craft of all kinds at their moorings – a paradise for sailing enthusiasts. Thurlestone, 2 miles to the west, can be reached either by car or via the coastal path. It boasts yet more expanses of golden sands, a regular feature of this lovely coastline. But, in addition, it has a superb cliff-top links golf course, edged by sandy coves, tennis courts and picturesque streets of thatched cottages overlooking the bay.

Kingsbridge, the ‘capital’ of the South Hams, has a good choice of interesting shops, a museum and a sports centre with squash, badminton and bowling. Boating and diving trips can be arranged in the Salcombe Estuary, and boats are available for hire. Within easy driving distance are the historic cities of Plymouth and Exeter and Kitley Caves. The wide-open spaces and breathtaking scenery of the Dartmoor National Park are less than an hour by car, and there are many National Trust properties, stately homes and interesting gardens within a short drive. Anchor Cottages are set in a little terrace in the village. They have been designed to offer ‘upside-down’ accommodation, with first floor living rooms. Comfortably furnished, each has a small first floor sitting-out area with furniture. They are ideally located for a Devon holiday by the sea. Shop/PO 50 yards.

We have stayed at seahaven for a number of years and Each year we have thought it could have been cleaner! This year our prays were answered, so much cleaner then previous years, we spoke to Rochelle who has been maintaining the cottages and well she spends so much time and effort keeping these clean and tidy and genuinely we thought the place had been painted! Very very good and we are hoping for next year to be the same...

We booked very last minute and read the previous reviews. The location was the draw for us. Therefore we expected the dated interiors, the slightly damp dank smelling ground floor, the poor quality uncomfortable mattresses, the grotty looking rear patio area and the oven door that didn't close properly (that had to be kept shut with a chair). What we didn't expect was a well equipped kitchen with everything we needed, a location that far exceeds the shortcomings of the property, a light airy spacious place to stay for our extended family and ultimately an absolutely fabulous holiday.

I nearly cried walking in the front door. The door handle was nearly falling off, the house smells of damp and an old people’s home, it’s dirty, there was a hole in the master room bedding, kitchen equipment is old, and it’s very dated. Really lovely location though. I wouldn’t stay again.
