The Coastguard Cottages at Lannacombe stand proudly overlooking the beautiful panorama of Lannacombe Bay on the southernmost tip of South Devon, a stunning unspoilt location that comes with its own beach, Ivy Cove. 1 Ivy Cove is the end cottage of a terrace of three and is a comfortable and practical, cottage set in a simply glorious spot. The coastal path passes below the cottages and from here there are miles of superb walking along the path that stretches from Dartmouth to Salcombe along craggy cliffs that dip into sandy coves. Lannacombe beach, a few minutes from the cottage, is a wide sandy bay at low tide, and is a favourite with surfers and families alike. Walking, swimming, surfing and rock pooling are just some of the joys of this location or simply enjoy the peace and spectacular views from the cottage and garden at any time of the year.

A fairly rough track (not really suitable for low slung cars) leads from Lannacombe Beach to the Coastguard Cottages and the area surrounding them is enclosed by low walls and hedging. The grounds are not divided between the cottages and No. 1 has its own private area to the side of the property and driveway with table and benches. A raised area at the rear provides a communal clothes line. Gate on the edge of the grounds of the cottages allows access to a path down to Ivy Cove beach below.
Games Room/Den, with TV, DVD and Table Tennis table.
Parking for two cars. As this parking area is shared with 2 Ivy Cove consideration should be given to maintaining access. Further parking (chargeable) is available on Lannacombe beach but this can be restricted due to limited availability and there is strictly no overnight parking.
Set within the popular South Hams district of South Devon, Kingsbridge is a market town sitting on the Salcombe estuary surrounded by beautiful countryside. Located in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is one of the most popular areas for visitors as it offers so much. The estuary provides plenty of options to get on the water whether fancy sailing, kayaking or stand up paddleboarding. If you are just looking for a day on the beach then Salcombe, East Portlemouth, Blackpool Sands or the two beaches at Thurlestone will all fit the bill. Walkers have a choice of walking a section of the South West Coast Path or heading inland and enjoying the many trails in the AONB. Plenty of options when wanting to eat out and some excellent towns and villages to explore nearby including Salcombe, Beesands, Dartmouth and Bigbury-on-Sea.
