A lovely apartment in Devon’s South Hams, which has been classed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Whatever you want from a holiday in Devon, you’re sure to find it in the South Hams. From the wild beauty of Dartmoor to the stunning southern coastline, there are endless miles of countryside, estuaries, rivers and beaches to explore. Close to Ferndale are the villages of Start Point and East Prawle, which is the most southerly point in Devon and home to a local popular pub, where there are often live music events and always good food. You will also be in a good location to explore Totnes, the maritime city of Plymouth, Dartmouth, and many small Devon villages filled with good pubs, tea rooms and galleries. Hallsands, with its unspoilt cove and intriguing history, is a lovely place to start a coast walk from, as is East Portlemouth where you can catch a small ferry to Salcombe.

The ground floor apartment, sleeping two guests, which has a mixture of slate and wooden floors, has one double bedroom with a lovely four-poster bed and a bathroom with shower over bath and WC. The bedroom has French doors leading out to the garden. The pleasant, spacious open plan lounge/diner/kitchen has ample comfortable seating to unwind on. There is also a TV/DVD to catch up on all of your favourite TV shows and those films you’ve been meaning to watch for so long. The kitchen area comes fully equipped with and electric oven and hob, a fridge, toaster and microwave. A shared laundry room is also available.

Outside is an enclosed shared garden area accessed through the front gate and across a very quiet and narrow road. It also has beautiful views over the rolling South Devon countryside. The coast can be reached via a 30 minute walk along a footpath, direct from the property. Ample off-road parking is available.

Great location if you want to get away from the maddening crowds and yet reasonabley close to local pubs and restaurants. Stay away from sat navs and use the local map provided. The cottage is very comfortable and you are well looked after by the owners.

Amazing in every way. Helpful owners were on hand without being overbearing. Our 2 dogs loved it as much as we did. The best holiday we have ever had and we return. Thank you so much Carole and Peter Tilly and Zeus

A superb location. South Allington is in splendid isolation. Lovely walks from the property, a stunningly rural outlook. Nice garden with picnic table. Incredibly welcoming and helpful hosts.

Reviewed by Christine 22nd June 2018

Ferndale is situated on a narrow lane in the hamlet of South Allington. It is very quiet and peaceful. Quiet beaches and walks through the countryside and along the coast are within easy distances. The apartment is comfortable and has everything that a couple would need. Dartmouth, Salcombe and Dartmoor are within easy reach by car.

Beautiful cottage, beautiful gardens, Johnie & Clare were fabulous hosts. Johnie particularly always had time to talk to us and helped with recommending places to go. The dog loved it too!
