"We have stayed in Boathouse Cottage several times and really can’t fault it. The accommodation is spacious, clean and perfectly located for the beach. The beach view from the upstairs window is amazing. The pub is a 2 min walk away and a farm shop is also within walking distance. We have never had any issues but someone is easy to contact should any arise. We would thoroughly recommend Boathouse Cottage, and we can’t wait to stay there again".

"Absolutely stunning location, the view from the living room did not disappoint, also, falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was great and defiantly helped with a greats night sleep! 10/10 and thank you for allowing us to stay".

Daniel, June 23


"Situated on the beach it was great to be able to pop back to the cottage - ideal when you have 2 kids and a dog! Local farm shop was fab for groceries and the Start Bay Inn was reliable for some nice evening food and drinks. Torcross is a beautiful place and the cottage allowed for an enjoyable and peaceful break".

James, July 23


"We had a brilliant stay at the boathouse, the location is incredible and the views breathtaking! We knew the area and so it was the perfect base for us for both relaxing at Torcross with friends or on Slapton Sounds, or exploring nearby Dartmouth or Blackpool sounds. I found the property more spacious than I was expecting and so plenty of room for 4 of you, we did find it a little challenging with our youngest daughter wanting to go up and down the stairs constantly which is something to bear in mind if you have very young children, but that wouldn’t stop us returning with the kids. The parking is great and the kitchen well equipped and you are right on the beach, you fall asleep and wake up with the sound of the waves, idyllic! We would definitely recommend and would love to return for another visit!"

Claire, August 23


"We were looking for beach front and this was certainly that. An idyllic home in a beautiful location. Amazing to hear the sea all the time. There is a local coffee shop, chip shop restaurant/ takeaway. The nearby farm shop was a great find. This home in a beautiful location was just perfect to explore surrounding south Devon coastal walks and beaches".

Emma, August 23


"Incredible sea views and immediate access straight down onto the beach - perfect for sea swimmers. Beautiful shingle beach with a small platform to swim to. Walks up and over the cliff behind the house and along the wetlands were perfect for children to explore. Highly recommend!"

Holly, September 23


"Fantastic house with everything you need for an enjoyable stay, couldn't be any closer to the sea. lost a few hours just staring out at the coast watching the waves. lovely beach and gorgeous locations scattered around us. Dog friendly location. worth getting up early in the morning to watch the sunrise, its worth it! Great house! recommend 100%."
