Bantham Cottages

Bantham is an enchanting coastal village located at the mouth of the River Avon in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A trip to Bantham in a South Devon holiday cottage allows you to explore this wonderful part of the coast at your own pace, in your own way. Cook your own meals, get up and come home whenever you like, customise your experience to include luxury features, such as open fires, or request dog-friendly accommodation. Whatever you need, we can provide for you in the area – after all, it is a second home so make yourself comfy! 

Things to Do in Bantham 

Bantham Beach is a Blue Flag beach, making it super clean and safe to swim at, which is a good job considering it’s South Devon’s most popular surfing beach. Beginners may want to stay in the more gentle waves at the bay, while seasoned professionals are welcome to try and take on the mighty swell at the mouth of the River Avon. The shore of Bantham beach is also lovely and sandy, perfect for a lie down in the sun. There is a seasonal dog ban on the beach between May and October, but if you’re holidaying with us outside of these months, your pooch is more than welcome to enjoy the sandy shores with you. 

From Bantham Beach, you get a lovely view across to Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island. This area of Devon was beloved by famous author Agatha Christie, and Burgh Island is perhaps the Devonshire landmark that has felt the weight of her legacy most. Christie used the island as inspiration behind her mystery novel ‘And Then There Were None’ and the hotel on the island still hosts murder mystery evenings, which are definitely worth looking into if you are a fan of the author. Fan or not, however, the famous Sea Tractor that takes you across to Burgh Island is a fun activity, especially loved by children. This strange car of sorts drives you through the sea in a passenger cart tens of metres high and is a great way to see the stunning views this area has on offer.  

If you’re into your walks, then you’ll be pleased to hear that Bantham is located on the South West Coast Path. Just 4 miles away on the path is the neighbouring village of Thurlestone, which is home to two fantastic beaches and a golf course, which is a must visit for those who love to play a few rounds on their holidays. You can also walk to Bantham’s other neighbour, Kingsbride, which is 4.5 miles away and an equally lovely day out. Kingsbridge is home to lots of great food and drink spots, making it the perfect place to stop off for an ice cream or delicious Devon cream tea. We also have a number of holiday cottages in Kingsbridge, which are just as lovely as their surroundings. 

Overall, Bantham is a real gem of the South Devon coast and its walks, beaches and scenery make for a lovely destination, any time of the year.
