The Stables is a welcoming holiday cottage in a lovely location within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is one of four well-appointed self-contained properties at Carlane Court in Slapton, sleeping six people in three bedrooms with an open-plan living area ideal for families. A village shop and two friendly pubs, The Queen's Arms and The Tower Inn, are a short walk from the door. Slapton Sands is only a mile away, while the beautiful Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve is even closer. The owner uses Carlane Court as their own holiday home, so you can trust that all of the holiday properties are very well-equipped for relaxed family holidays by the coast.
Slapton Sands' calm waters are a favourite for swimming, SUP and windsurfing. There's a lifeguard on duty in the summer, a cafe and other amenities, so you don't have to pop home if you forget anything. A narrow shingle bar separates the beach from Slapton Ley. Many visitors are surprised to discover the large lake is freshwater despite being so close to the sea, but the diverse landscape is one reason this region is so special. The South West Coast Path affords beautiful views in every season. If you can get up early enough then you'll see spectacular sunrises. Other local beaches include Beesands and Strete Gate.
Day trips from The Stables can include sightseeing in Dartmouth, a historic naval town with excellent amenities and a busy harbour. Alternatively, drive south to Sidmouth and enjoy the scenic views of boats sailing along the Kingsbridge Estuary or visit the Donkey Sanctuary. The English Riviera and beaches like Brixham, Paignton and Torquay are also within easy reach, as is Dartmoor National Park. There is a wide range of attractions and activities to enjoy, including surfing, golf, sea fishing, horse riding, and mountain biking. See the animals at Paignton Zoo and take a ride on Torquay's Big Wheel. There are also gardens and country houses to enjoy and a wealth of charming towns and villages with their own charms and character.
The Stables is available for bookings all year round. It can be booked together with other cottages at Carlane Court to accommodate extended families and groups of friends. Please see the owner's website for details.
