This private, peaceful self-catering chalet, with WIFI, Is in an elevated position capturing the sun all day. It has the most wonderful uninterupted views of the sea and sunsets which can be enjoyed from either inside or outside.
The private beach is a few minutes walk down the coast path.
The chalet is ideally situated if you want to walk the beautiful South West Coast path; explore Devon, Cornwall, Dartmoor or any other numerous local beaches / estuaries or just sit quietly and watch the changing moods of the sea.
The local beaches are ideal for swimming, snorkelling, fishing off the rocks, spear fishing or playing in the flat sand when the tide is out.
There is a small lawn and seating area at the front of the property and a large sunny private patio to the side. Outside tables, chairs and two sun loungers are provided.
The property has recently been decorated and freshly furnished to a very high standard, with a new shower room installed in January 2017. It has one double bedroom, with extra sleeping available on the white leather sofa that opens out as a sofa bed. This is more suitable for children and not adults.
Allocated parking [for one car] is approx. forty meters from the door. A gentle slope takes you to the door but there is one step at the doorway.
Bovisand Park is set in 27 acres to the east of Plymouth Sound. It is a privately owned park which leases the adjacent beaches from the Duchy of Cornwall...these beaches are dog free but the larger public beach to west of the park [but not in the park] isn't. The gates to the park are locked at night but a key will be provided. The S.W. coast path runs through the estate. The estate boundaries are encompassed by the sea to the south / south west and fields. The park is not a commercial holiday park but it does offer a small shop [for essentials] and a charming licensed restaurant / tea room which is open all year and will open for evening meals on some nights in the summer. Booking is recommended.
The village of Down Thomas provides a village store and an excellent pub for eating out. It is within walking distance but only for the fairly fit....a steady climb along a footpath from the western end of the park.
