Property Location


Slapton village lies just half a mile inland from Start Bay, a huge sweep of beach several miles long. Here visitors can join up with the South West Coast Path with its spectacular views, and walk between Salcombe and Dartmouth taking in Start Point Lighthouse, East Prawle, Blackpool Sands and Torcross along the way. The quaint village of Slapton with its winding lanes and picturesque cottages is home to many stories of army occupation during the D-Day landing practices of the Second World War, and the memorial tank at Torcross, dredged from the seabed a few years ago, is worth a visit. The freshwater lagoon at Slapton Ley is of national scientific importance, owned and managed by Slapton Field Study Centre. Here visitors can enjoy delightful views of the lake and sea, or take the nature trail around the reedbeds to watch the migrant and resident birds attracted to the area.
