The Beach Hut
Star in a beachfront love story with a grown ups-only romantic cabin for two, blissfully hidden away in a cosily secretive cove on the South Devon coast.
Romantic seaside escapes simply don't come more stunningly secluded than this! Nestled away in a private cove on the beachfront itself and with the most breathtaking South Devon coastal views all around and out to sea, The Beach Hut is the perfect setting for the beginning of a magical holiday story.
Luxuriate in the feeling of having your very own personal beach, isolated at the bottom of a steep cliff path, where you can sit undisturbed for as long as you like, whiling away the hours in close conversation as you listen to waves crashing romantically against the rocks, with seagulls cawing overhead - and perhaps even accompanied by a sizzling barbecue!
Step inside your beautiful beach hut, electricity-free and built from wood and stone to blend beautifully with its rugged surroundings, to discover everything you need for an idyllic seaside stay. Charmingly decorated and gorgeously light throughout, you can enjoy soothing coastal views from the inside - simply curl up with a mug of steaming coffee and look straight out to sea.
Fire up the woodburner on chillier evenings for a soft, warming glow set off by solar-powered lighting... maybe crack open a bottle of wine or two! The woodburner also doubles as a boiler, providing hot water for your invigorating outdoor shower, and there is also a compost toilet in a separate shed.
A small kitchen area includes all you need for preparing a selection of tasty seaside snacks, including a cool box, a gas hob and a sink with running water. Why not treat yourselves to a Devon Meal Hamper for your first night and for a breakfast to remember, lovingly packed with a mouthwatering selection of food and wine?
Sleep soundly by the waves in a cosy double bed, accessed by a ladder and dressed in high-quality 100% cotton - and for an extra helping of relaxation beforehand, how about a spot of night time stargazing in the wood fired outdoor hot tub... bliss after a hard day spent exploring the sandy coastline.
You may find you enjoy being holed up together in your private beachfront hideaway so much that you don't feel like leaving! If you do however, you're in for a treat with so much to do and see in the local area. Why not begin with a beachside picnic or a trip to Newton Ferrers, just over a mile away and a wonderful place to try out your sea legs by hiring a boat? Nearby Salcombe is also a perfect setting for a variety of watersports.
There are plenty of local walks available, along with opportunities for horse riding, golf and cycling. In summertime, a walk along the edge of the Plymouth Sound to Cawsand is a fantastic experience - just take the passenger ferry back again, sit back and enjoy the views!
You'll find South Devon is home to a thriving wealth of attractions, dining and entertainment options that mean your holiday can be as sociably fun-filled or as romantically isolated as you choose.
So if you're in need of an exhilarating seaside escape, book a stay at The Beach Hut and get started on creating that all-important first chapter in your beachfront holiday romance story!
