Ayrmer House 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | WiFi | Pub 320m | Beach 825m | | Sleeps 6
In Ringmore (pub, 350 yards), quietly perched on a hillside at the end of a private drive, a spacious, south-west facing, detached home, the largest part of which has been made completely private and self-contained for your use (owner lives in annexe with separate entrance). All rooms have superb panoramic views down a valley and over fields to the sea at Ayrmer Cove (900 yards on foot). Own paved terrace (barbecue) and first-floor balcony (door from each bedroom), both sea-facing with tables/chairs for time-wasting views and spectacular sunsets.
Entrance hall (for coats/boots); big open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with tiled floor (rugs), exposed stone walls, woodburner, TV/DVD/video and those lovely long views from sofas, window seats and dining table/chairs; doors to terrace; larder (fridge-freezer); utility room (washing machine, tumble drier); loo. Open tread stairs (stairgates) up to three bedrooms (TVs), all with twin beds (two rooms zip-linkable to 6' doubles), one with en suite shower-room (suite) and the others with washbasin; bathroom (shower over bath, washbasin); loo. A striking location with sea view; lovely coastal and countryside walks from the doorstep.
The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.
Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton’s long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth’s beach and Salcombe’s location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don’t need to be brash; Bigbury’s huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.
Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area’s heart; Plymouth – the West Country’s biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area’s edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.
Ringmore: extremely pretty village (fine church, award-winning good food pub), ¾ mile by foot from small, sandy Ayrmer Cove (Nat. Trust) and Coast Path. Good walking. Sandy beaches at Challaborough, 1 mile, Bigbury-on-Sea, 1½ miles by foot, 3 by car, and the Erme estuary, 2½ miles by foot or 3 by car. PO/shop, 1 mile. Excellent seafood restaurant, 2 miles.
