Area Details

East Prawle

East Prawle is a small village ideal for those that want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The village is 8 minutes away from East Portlemouth and very popular with ramblers who are spoilt with their choice of walks that lead to the South West Coast Path. The village, often known as "pig country" is very agricultural and surrounded by working farms, has a very friendly atmosphere and you may often find eggs for sale on the roadside. The village has its own green, a pub which frequently has live music playing, a farm store and adjoining cafe. Lannacome beach is a short drive or walk away and whilst being quite a remote and rugged beach is quite sandy, as is Gara Rock. East Portlemouth beach is ideal for families as the water here is safe and shallow - all of the beaches mentioned are dog-friendly. The village hosts Prawle Fair each year and for one day the village steps back in time with traditional fairground rides, coconut shies, live music and much more. The entertainment continues into the evening at the Pigs Nose Inn and is a fabulous day out for all the family. Take a ferry ride from East Portlemouth to the harbourside town of Salcombe and ride up to the beach from the water on the sea tractor, relax on Salcombe beach with an ice cream from the beach cafe and take in the lovely views.
