LOCATION The Coach House is in an elevated position overlooking the village of Hallsands and its shingle beach - the South West Coastal Path runs alongside the property with a lovely walk to Start Point lighthouse approximately 2 miles away. The Start Bay coastline is interspersed with long beaches and fishing villages many of which have cafes, shops and quaint country pubs. Hallsands is within easy reach of both Kingsbridge and Dartmouth and there are many beaches close by including Lannacombe, Mattiscombe, Blackpool Sands and East Portlemouth, from where a passenger ferry runs to Salcombe all year round.
