South Huish is a sleepy hamlet, surrounded by the glorious countryside which is typical of rural Devon. Besides a scattering of pretty thatched cottages, this traditional community remains undeveloped, making it perfect for unwinding to the sound of birds singing in the hedgerows. One of the biggest draws of South Huish holiday cottages is easy access to one of Devon’s most beautiful stretches of coast. Take a wander along the South West Coast Path, through an Area of Outstanding Beauty where towering clifftops, sandy beaches and an abundance of wildlife can be found. For a bracing dip in the sea, head to Thurlestone Bay, a sheltered beach with fine shingle, turquoise waters and plenty of space to while away a day in the sun. The area’s sweeping river estuaries are also magnificent and can be explored on a traditional steamboat tour.
