1 Beesands

We fell in love with Start Bay many years ago; the breathtaking views, space and old fashioned British charm. Many family holidays were spent in this part of South Hams with the dream of one day being able to have our own home in this mini paradise. Back in 2010 we noticed a lovely old fisherman’s cottage in Beesands but not having any of the necessary skills needed to renovate it, we decided it wasn’t for us. Roll on 5 years and as if it was meant to be No 1 Beesands was back on the market and this time we weren’t going to let it go. ​We are now the proud owners of our dream cottage by beautiful Start Bay and we’d like to share it with you.
