Geometric tiles and fun coastal artwork complete the space, while an Azatom Bluetooth speaker provides some background entertainment.
With direct access onto the balcony, the main living space enjoys majestic frontline views out to sea. Slide open the doors and step onto the terrace to soak up an invigorating South Devon breeze. Tucked inside and protected from the elements, a pair of window seats provide the perfect storm-watching spot if the weather’s wild, while two plush sofas and child-friendly bean bags invite sociable evenings together.

Sure to be a hit with the children, Tamarisks’ final bedroom features a fun bunk bed layout with a double bed on the bottom and a single on the top. Simple and understated, the room’s grey-blue interiors continue the seaside theme of the house, with touches of wood and rattan throughout.
Tiled in a beautiful geometric design, the family bathroom is awash in muted pastel shades. A huge walk-in shower with a waterfall head will make evening showers all the more tempting after days on the sand.
Perched above the garage and accessed via an external staircase, the media-room-turned-den offers a high-spec chill-out space for teenagers, film fanatics and those simply wanting to escape the hub of the group. Complete with a built-in ceiling projector, pile in and cosy up to watch your favourite Netflix shows.
The kitchen area has a sink, microwave and toaster to transform the space into a rainy day refuge, as well as a breakfast bar for preparing cinema-ready snacks. Atmospheric lighting and trendy low-level beanbags make the space cosy and inviting, while splashes of blue and porthole windows add an element of seaside fun. There’s also a handy W/C for those marathon movie weekends, and direct access onto the lower-level terrace via a wood-clad spiral staircase.
Panoramic views across Hope Cove Beach and the ocean beyond are what make the outdoor space at Tamarisks so special. With a wood fired pizza oven, fire pit and a barbeque looking out across the water, the two-tier terrace is a picturesque setting to drink and dine in style.
Keen barbeque chefs will find everything they need in the outdoor kitchen, from a built-in grill and handy sink to a drinks fridge promising ice cold beers. There’s plenty of outdoor seating with a huge dining table for family dinners, and a relaxed corner sofa for when the sun goes down. Up on the second terrace, you’ll find sun loungers and rattan egg chairs that are perfect for taking in the view.
At the back of the house sits a retired formal show garden, a peaceful spot that was visited and loved by the public in its previous life. Now a tranquil oasis for families to relax, there’s an outdoor dining table plus an additional barbeque for al fresco lunches on the elevated courtyard. Two outdoor cedar wood showers are on hand for warming up after morning sea swims, while a hanging chair is tucked beneath the trees for those more comfortable in the shade.
Stepping through the gap in the feature stone wall, you’ll find a mural paying tribute to Tamarisks’ seaside setting, made out of mussel shells collected on the beach below. Closer to the house, there’s a convenient outdoor sink and tumble dryer to take care of beach day essentials.
Please note: Tamarisks is accessed via steep stairs at the front of the property so we wouldn't recommend it for guests with limited mobility. As the garden is terraced with several sets of steps throughout, as well as some steep drops, young children should be supervised at all times while in the external areas.
At the front of the house, there’s a double garage offering private parking for two cars. An additional car can be parked on the track opposite.
