View from High Corner

High Corner

This pretty cottage set in the heart of Thurlestone in the beautiful South Hams offers holiday makers the best of both worlds being both a rural retreat and a coastal escape. High Corner enjoys a handy setting in the heart of the pretty village.

High Corner

The cottage benefits from lovely sea views and a beautiful beach with wide sandy bay just a short stroll away. In addition, the fantastic facilities at the nearby Thurlestone Hotel, including indoor and outdoor pools and spa are a mere five minutes walk away as are the famous golf course, tennis courts and family-friendly pub.
The high street is full of picturesque thatched cottages.

High Corner

As well as its fabulous location, High Corner Cottage has much to recommend it, not least the coastal views from both the terrace and the master bedroom balcony (safely enclosed), which is a stunning spot for morning coffee.

Master bedroom

High Corner has a lovely mix of old and new with original character features and all mod cons sitting side by side.


There are three bedrooms that sleep six in total. The master bedroom has a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside unit and doors out on to the balcony where you can sit and enjoy the lovely sea views.

There are two bathrooms - one on the first floor, with shower, heated towel rail and toilet.

Shower Room

The ground floor bathroom has a bath tub with shower over, bidet, heated towel rail and toilet. The downstairs bathroom is ideal for cleaning off the sand after a long day on the beach.

The galley kitchen is fully equipped with a range of wall and floor units, beech work top, ceramic hob and electric oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave.

There is a separate utility area which houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.



The living room with its exposed beams, flagstone flooring, living flame fire and a flat screen TV is such a cosy room in which to curl up on the sofa after a hard day on the beach!


Door and steps lead down to the dining room where families can gather around the oak dining table. Guests can also use the single sofa bed after enjoying a prosecco or two!

Or why not enjoy a barbecue in the outside terraced area accessed via glass patio doors.

The courtyard provides extra room for parking but as it is such a sun trap, it’s a lovely place to relax and have coffee!

High Corner benefits from off road parking for two cars.

Golf Course

Situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Thurlestone, High Corner is ideally situated to explore all that the stunning South Hams has to offer.  


Thurlestone has a beautiful church, great pub

Village Inn

and little shop and post office, where you can order fresh croissants and bread daily. The nearest market town is Kingsbridge (about 10 mins drive) which has an assortment of shops including local butchers, fishmongers, delis and bakery. There is also a Tesco and Morrisons. Salcombe, again a 10 minute drive, is a lovely little village selling all sorts of souvenirs, clothing and trinkets. Modbury is a great little town with a variety of interesting shops and cafes. Well worth a visit! Dartmouth is a must! ‘The Jewel of the South Hams.’ Ancient narrow streets house boutique shops, art galleries & delicatessens. A cobbled market place features colourful stalls and Farmers markets supplying local produce – used in the local restaurants, pubs & cafes.

Thurlestone has plenty of great beaches to choose from, some within walking distance some a few minutes drive away.


Yarmer is just down the road – go through the village, past the pub, past the church and on to the Yarmer Estate. There are a series of different pathways that will take you over the golf course on to a beautiful beach which is great for rock pooling.

After a hard day on the beach, you can then pop along to South Milton where you can enjoy a fresh fish dish at the Beach café.
