Bijou beach getaway in Bantham
The Studio is a little bolthole by Bantham beach in Bantham, South Devon. With picture windows overlooking the Avon River estuary, it has stunning views to enjoy. Plus with parking for 1 car and a garden, this little property really does have everything you could possibly want.
The ground level is an open plan kitchen, living room. It has everything that you need should you wish to cook including fridge-freezer, cooker, hob, kettle and toaster. If you don’t want to cook, you are a 1 minute walk to the Sloop Inn. TV and DVD player for wet days. There is a 5ft sofa that converts into a super-king sized sofa bed. There is also a bathroom on the ground floor with a shower over the bath.
The Studio has a mezzanine level with 2 single beds. (However, the stairs are quite steep so will not be suitable for those with limited mobility.) With the mezzanine level, this bolthole can sleep up to 4 (plus travel cot available too), if you wish to escape with your children.
Best of all, The Studio is right by the wonderful Bantham beach. The beautiful soft sand beach overlooking Burgh Island is famous. At low tide, there are miles and miles of soft sand to play on. Lifeguards for much of the season help ensure this is a wonderful family beach. Bantham is great for watersports too. It is popular with surfers, wind/kite surfers, kayaks and sailing. Plus, swimming with the tide down the Avon River out to the beach is a popular pass time!
The beach has dog restrictions between 1st April & 30 September; where dogs are restricted to the river side of the beach. At low tide, this still means there is plenty of space for your dogs to play. Plus there are plenty of other beaches along the coastal path with no dog restrictions. It is a lovely walk up to Thurlestone (1/2 mile) and this has 3 beaches with no dog restrictions at all.
Bantham has a pub called The Sloop which is dog friendly and a shop with cafe attached. Bantham is only a few miles to Kingsbridge for more extensive shopping, or over to Thurlestone for golf (handicap required) and tennis.
Bringing your dog(s): We love to welcome dogs to The Studio and happily accept 2 dogs. Please could you bring throws so that your dogs can snooze on the sofa. The steps to the mezzanine are steep, so we do not recommend allowing your dogs up there. Your dogs will love the garden, but please do poop scoop daily as the gardener cannot mow the grass if there is poop.
NOTE: from September 17th 2018, The Studio garden will be reduced to 1/3 of the whole garden (it has both patio and lawn) to allow Steepfield to have it’s own fenced garden. Fence height between the two gardens is 3ft.
Set right in the heart of Bantham village, The Studio is on the desirable side of the road overlooking the River Avon. Just moments from the Sloop Inn and the shop (with cafe); you will have everything within easy reach. The beach is a gentle stroll away past the gorgeous thatched cottages!
