About Mrs J Sullivan
I live in the Midlands with my partner. I try to regularly visit Thurlestone,my favourite place in the South Hams, as often as commitments allow. The property has been in the family for over 35 years, during this time it has been the hub for fabulous family beach holidays. I have tried to make the bungalow comfortable, as it is so important to me that you enjoy your holiday. I have repeat visitors year after year with some visitors even settling on their retirement in the neighbourhood. I would say if you love nature and walking and peace and quiet you will love the South Hams.
Mrs J Sullivan purchased this Bungalow in 1972
Why Mrs J Sullivan chose Thurlestone
This property has it all really as it is tucked away in a corner of the village, but just a short stroll to the center of Thurlestone. Amazing views across the valley and out to sea. Shops in Kingsbridge have everything you need plus a lovely park. Wonderful walks on the South West Coastal path which can be accessed from the property. Superb choice of wonderful sandy beaches, many within a 25 minute walk or 5 minute drive. The house is fully equipped, comfortable beds, with a log burner for those cooler nights. The garden at the rear of the property is secure, with wood fencing on both sides and wire fencing at the end So this does not impair the wonderful view we have across the valley and out to sea, with Burgh Island being a central point. We have a private parking space outside our own garage.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Thurlestone is an ideal place to stay if you like Walking, Bird Watching, Beaches, Nature, Golf, Tennis etc. A central position to explore the South Hams, with Salcombe, Hope Cove, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Dartmouth amongst the many places for a great day out. The Bungalow provides a Welcome Book giving you all the information you will need to maximise your stay including a list of local eateries. In the Summer you may see fantastic sunsets, a perfect end after a day at the beach, sitting in the garden enjoying a G&T while the BBQ sizzles away and the sun goes down. I would not recommend the area to anyone who wants busy night life. Entertainment here is more a great chat whilst enjoying a good meal ! There are 2 local Pubs one in The Village with good food and occasional quiz nights and music nights but we provide loads of Games and Videos, DVD's for your use.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A beautifully presented property, with all the home comforts you need for a relaxing holiday. An amazing view over Burgh Island, which was even more spectacular when we were treated to a wonderful firework display one evening (I assume a wedding or party on the island). Perfect location for access to the coast path, beautiful beaches, and lovely walks. We would happily return.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of our property. We really appreciate your comments. What a great having the firework display, our amazing view captures so much, at New Year there is normally a spectacular show from Burgh Island.
Delighted to hear you would return, that says it all! Thank you.
All good fantastic place
Really pleased your weekend went well. Thanks for choosing our property.
A great spot and a lovely house to enjoy it from
A really well equipped and located house to enjoy some of the best stretches of the English coast from.
Thank you for your review, we are so fortunate having the South West Coastal Path on our door step. The house, we have had for years, in fact, it’s been in the family since the 70’s so we have gradually built up all the equipment within, and constantly changing items to keep up to date with current trends.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay, I do hope we can welcome you back in the future.
Absolutely wonderful bungalow that is furnished to a high standard and is very cosy. It has the most picturesque views from the living area, even at the end of November when the weather can be drizzly and misty. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We were delighted to welcome you back, and pleased to hear you enjoyed your second visit. Thurlestone is totally different in the winter, the main bulk of visitors have returned home until the following summer which leaves the country lanes a lot quieter, the coastal paths easily accessible, the Village Inn cosy with plenty of tables and Peacehaven very welcoming with the log burner glowing. Thanks for returning, I do hope we can welcome you back again in the future.
