Located on the South Devon coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with stretching sands and fabulously abundant countryside is the seaside village of Slapton containing a cluster of charming self catered holiday cottages within its midst. Ocean facing pretty white houses nestle on the cliff overlooking the beach. Further to the east, the beach is backed by the Slapton Leys – natural freshwater lakes with an abundance of wild life.
Perhaps Slapton’s biggest moment in history came in 1944 when the Slapton Sands was used by American troops rehearsing for D-Day. Look round and you’ll find various memorials to the men that lived here for a few months that spring before heading to the D-Day battlegrounds of Normandy.
