Space & Setting.

If this was on Rightmove, it would cause mayhem. Especially if it was fully furnished. Once part of a brewery, the house is the oldest in a line of terraced stone cottages, and sat rundown and unoccupied for years until a London architect saw its vast potential. One major renovation later and whilst the outside stays true to its past, the inside has been magicked into a stunning, contemporary hideaway. Polished concrete floors, a cool, cantilevered staircase, and a glorious backdrop of Farrow & Ball grey and pink, shot with colourful pops of yellow, red and green.

Come with another couple (there are 2 kingsize bedrooms), or bring the kids, who’ll love the blackboard wall in the kitchen and crabbing on the nearby quay. The area’s full of excellent pubs and restaurants – don’t miss excellent pastries at The Almond Thief in nearby Dartington – and you’re a short walk from the glorious Kingsbridge estuary. Spectacular south Devon beaches (surfy Bantham, idyllic South Milton Sands) are also close by.

Getting here: you’ll need to drive.

  • The Kingsbridge Estuary is an AONB, with wild seals, a huge variety of wading birds, even seahorses clinging to water weeds. Explore it by kayak or paddleboard; you can hire or book lessons at the quay outside The Crabshell pub (500m)
  • It’s a 10-min drive to amazing beaches. Bantham (Devon’s best surf), Mothecombe, Bigbury and South Milton Sands. The latter is Misha’s favourite for an early evening BBQ (bring a disposable one) or sundowners at The Beach House Café.
  • Walk the beautiful coastal path from East Portlemouth to Prawle Point and reward yourself with a pint of real ale at The Pig’s Nose.
  • Dittisham is an exceptionally pretty riverside village. Take the kids crabbing on its quay and have a flat white at The Anchorstone Café.
  • Ferry to charming Salcombe and go sailing, or stroll round the shops then lunch on crab sandwiches and chips at the beachside The Winking Prawn.
