The Keeping Place is an exceptional holiday home that attracts discerning friends and families who are looking for a stylish holiday home that has that something special to offer. The individual and unique French Country style of the accommodation and layout lends itself perfectly for one or two families who want to holiday together or a group of friends looking for a special place to stay or celebrate an occasion.
The Keeping Place is the owner's much loved family home and the wonderful 'home from home’ feel is apparent from the minute you walk in, providing a truly atmospheric holiday retreat that can accommodate up to nine guests. With a wealth of character and original features that include flagstone floors and ancient oak beams, you are sure to have a memorable holiday.
There is a lovely beach just one mile from The Keeping Place, which can be reached on foot (reasonably easy level walk). It is also possible to park at the beach and enjoy this safe and sandy piece of the coastline, with fabulous rock pools at low tide which will keep the children (and adults!) amused. There is a cafe at the beach and swimming is safe - the sunsets are also spectacular!
Conveniently located in the popular South Hams area of Devon, The Keeping Place is just a short drive, along a country lane, to Salcombe. Sitting on the estuary, Salcombe is renowned for its wonderful coastline and sandy beaches and has something for everyone, of all ages. It has good restaurants, superb sailing and water sports, along with horse riding, golf, tennis, squash and fishing - all available in the surrounding area.
Also nearby is the popular market town of Kingsbridge where you will find a good selection of shops including supermarket shopping. For golfers, there is a golf course at Thurlestone which is just a five minute drive away and also at Dartmouth and Bigbury which are both twenty minutes by car.
