Area Details


Thurlestone is an increasingly popular holiday destination located in the South Hams area of Devon. Just 5 miles from Kingsbridge, the coastal village has one of the most dramatic coastlines along the South Devon Coast with the impressive Thurlestone Rock, an arch-shaped rock just off the main beach which is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Made up of two beaches, both beaches are sandy, sheltered and the waters are shallow enough to allow children to have a safe paddle in. This is the perfect location if you are looking for a beautiful sandy beach, stunning countryside without the crowds that some of the other South Devon beaches attract. The beach is pet-friendly all year round, has won an award from the Marine Conservation Society thanks to its clean waters and has lifeguards between May and September.

Walk along the coast a short way and you will find South Milton which has a beachside cafe and plenty of water sports to try. Many of our Thurlestone holiday cottages are just a couple of minutes walk from the beach and have sea views. We can cater from romantic breaks for two to accommodating large families or groups of friends. This is a special area to visit and relax in.
