Welcome to Thistledown Cottage, located in the gorgeous rural hamlet of Dunstone. The cottage is within a 2 mile walk of Hallsands beach, and also many country pubs and villages. Within driving distance are the local towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth. The cottage is great if you enjoy walks, wildlife, beaches, sailing and even for families with small children. We also have a Studio property to rent, making it ideal for a slightly larger group of you.

A beautifully presented cottage in a stunning remote location. We had a fabulous time, close proximity to Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Saltcomve and a whole host of beautiful beaches - Mill Bay was our favourite. Highly recommended.
