The house is pet friendly and has a private right of way down a track (about 20-minute walk) to the beach and the South West Coastal Footpath. East Prawle has a village shop and a well-known local pub – the Pigs Nose Inn. The property benefits from a wonderful suntrap conservatory, sea views as well as private garden and private parking.


The house is accessed via the small walled garden. The front door opens to the main hallway with room for coats and boots. Off the hallway is the spacious kitchen/diner with wooden floor, cream units and wood worktops, electric cooker, microwave, washing machine, fridge freezer, dishwasher. A circular pine table and chairs for 5 in the window overlooks the garden.

The lounge is a large room, again with wooden floors, two comfortable sofas, armchair, wood burning stove and TV with DVD. French doors at the end of the room lead into the conservatory with dining table and chairs, a lovely quiet spot to relax with tea and a book.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, built in storage and an ensuite shower room with shower toilet and wash basin. The second bedroom is a twin bedroom with built in storage and chest of drawers. The third bedroom is a single room. Sea views can be enjoyed over the fields from all bedrooms. There is also a family bathroom with bath, handheld shower over, toilet and wash basin.

At the front of the house is a small walled garden with lawn and bench.


There is private off-road parking outside the house. The driveway is a rough farm road which may be unsuitable for low profile vehicles. There is additional free parking on the village green.


The Pigs Nose, the village pub in East Prawle is a wonderful spot just up the road. Piglet Stores the village shop is well stocked with everyday goods as well as some brilliant local produce. The South West Coast Path is a stones throw away with access to a number of quiet beaches.


In the peak season, May, June, July and August we need to keep to Saturday changeovers and a minimum stay of 7 nights. However, please do contact me with any requests you may have and we will accommodate if possible.
Out of peak season we don't need to keep to a Saturday changeover.
Please get in touch if you need any advice or tips on places to visit, walks (we're right on the South West Coast path), pubs & restaurants etc.

"A lovely place to stay with great walking down to the sea. Would recommend. Ample space within the cottage" - Paul - September 2021.

"Lovely location & house. Very comfortable. Wonderful walks and great local pub. beautiful beaches nearby. We had a great week!" - Rebecca - August 2021

"Great place to stay. Really liked the house and it was really clean." - Ben - July 2021

"The cottage was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. We live in South Devon so we were familiar with the location but even so we were amazed at how peaceful the village was. The coastal walking was superb, challenging at times, but worth the effort.The number of access and interlocking paths provided plenty of choice as to the length and difficulty of each days outing. The local pubs/ restaurants provided good value food, plenty of variety and a wide range of local produce and drinks. Dart Valley Cottages need to be commended on their administration and help during the period of the lockdowns. The directions to the cottage were precise and easy to follow, contact was made without difficulty as and when necessary and our changes to the actual booking dates were dealt with very efficiently and pleasantly. Very highly recommended, we certainly hope to stay again." Mike - May 2021

"The cottage is in a close location to the pub and store but there is no mobile signal in the area but there is good wifi inside.
The location and roads can be challenging to get there and visit other towns, but there are good walks on your doorstep." Paul - September 2020

"A great, comfortable holiday home. Very clean and the usual relaxing stay. Perfect location with shop and pub in the village. We were still able to visit all the local beaches without issues in spite of COVID-19 restrictions.
We will definitely be back!" - Jonathan - August 2020

A lovely house with a relaxing atmosphere - instantly felt at home. Everything we needed was there and private path to beach an extra bonus. Watching the sun come up over the sea in the morning is priceless. Rachel - February 2020

“Great base to walk from. Everything you need for an enjoyable comfortable stay. One car parking space but very near to the village green parking . Large rooms,enjoyed log burner and relaxing in the conservatory watching the birds and butterflies. Good pub and shop with cafe. Would suggest you do main shop at Kingsbridge on way. Very near the coastal paths and beaches would definitely recommend cottage and location.” Tim 14-21 September 2019

“We spent the August Bank holiday week with our young grand children and their parents at Lower House, West. Immediately, we felt comfortable…that is once we’d fought our way through the permanent crowd outside and in the Pigs Nose pub around the corner. Our house is part of the old farm complex and, despite the activities around the pub, it was quiet. Immediate access to paths through fields with blackberries galore down to the stony beach 15 minutes away. Plenty of space downstairs with small, gated, front garden. Good kitchen seating, a large well equipped kitchen for those wishing to cook. A decent sized sitting room, leading on to a conservatory. Good bedrooms and comfortable beds. Decent shower in main bedroom. All in all very comfortable, no nonsense accommodation. No frills but clean, tidy and homely. Just what you might expect from a farmhouse accommodation. We are keen walkers, so the location was just right. Over many years we have walked the coastal paths but had never visited the village properly. Normally, the pub is not as busy as over the Bank holiday and you can get a seat inside. The village cafe, across the narrow road from the pub, is very good. Our 6 week old grandson became ill and the speed with which our landlady and the paramedics reacted is worth a very big thank you. East Prawle is virtually without mobile phone signal, although there is a house phone. Medical assistance just came from all quarters and if you don’t know the roads here, they are narrow, windy and well, don’t always lead where you might wish! They arrived and all became well. Thank you for your help, you all were a great reassurance. Thank you too for a lovely holiday home. It will be a week well remembered for many reasons, all good.” S Tolson – 24-31 August 2019

“Excellent house for family holiday. The facilities were good.” Nicholas – 3-10 August 2019
