East Prawle is Devon’s most southerly village on a beautiful unspoiled headland. There are lovely coastal walks on the South West Coast Path leading to secluded coves and the Prawle Point lookout station. A great walk is along the coast to Start Point lighthouse then back inland to East Prawle an 8.5-mile circular walk.
The Pigs Nose Inn is a wonderful old pub full of character, well known locally for its live music. Formerly a smugglers’ tavern, there’s plenty of memorabilia to keep you amused as well as board games for the kids and a pool table. The Pigs Nose serves good pub food year-round.
There is a seasonal village shop named after the pub – The Piglet Stores and Café. All the essentials are there as well as a good selection of local produce.
A short drive takes you to the sandy Mill Bay and East Portlemouth beaches on the Salcombe Estuary – great for children, with rock pools at low tide and dinghy sailing. A passenger ferry runs to Salcombe from East Portlemouth all year round.
