Beach Cottages

Beesands is a pretty whitewashed beach resort that lies within Start Bay in South Devon. The village boasts a fabulous award-winning shingle beach flanked by an impressive lake; all idyllically framed by blooming rolling hills. Here you can practice all kinds of water sports such as surfing, canoeing, sailing and fishing and there is a great beach shop/cafe catering for all your needs. Take note that there are no lifeguards stationed on the beach during the year and if you’re hoping to rent pet friendly Beesands cottages, the good news is that dogs are allowed on the beach all year round. Ocean views are best appreciated from the incredible National Trust coastal path, where you will also find a fabulous gourmet cafe, a great spot to take break.


This is the perfect destination for couples, families or large groups to savour the West Country's tranquil traditional sea-faring way of life with fishing boats still hauling in a daily catch of fresh seafood; available locally either in town or nearby. Other local beaches to explore include Slapton Sands, Torcross Beach, Strete Gate Beach and if you have the time, check out the Start Point Lighthouse, which watched over these seas for over 150 years.
