The world on your doorstep...


On top of fantastic facilities to make your break the ultimate in relaxation (check out our Facilities & Gallery), what really makes us unique is our unrivalled location.

"Are we nearly there yet?"

That all too familiar question strikes a chord with us too! And by staying at The Thatches, your answer will be a very confident "Yes!" as the multitude of local attractions, places to eat and things to do will easily satisfy all tastes and ages - and it would all be right on your doorstep.

Not only is our holiday village nestled close to the breathtaking beauty of the south Devon coastline (that boasts several of the UK's finest sandy beaches - only 5 mins away!), we're also on a hop, skip and a jump away from a whole host of the most amazing attractions this stunning part of the world has to offer. As parents of little ones ourselves we understand what it's like to have excitable kids in the back of the car - and therefore appreciate how attractive shorter journeys can be!

So to give you a flavour of what an incredible amount there is to see and do, around and about, we have compiled a map (not visible on mobile browsers) pinpointing many of our favourite haunts, so you can see just how close everything is.

Foodie's Heaven

South Devon is definitely that, being so close to the sea and with local fishermen, farmers and butchers offering such an abundance of fresh produce. So we've included on the map (not visible on mobile browsers) our top 5 places that will appeal to the 'gastros' amongst you. We believe that great food contributes to a great holiday too.

The best sandy beaches...

The beautiful beaches in south Devon are reputed to be the best in the UK and well known for being the cleanest and safest which is probably why they've won awards. So take a picnic and a bucket and spade!

There are the sandy coves of Salcombe, the pristine Mothecombe beach and the lighthouse at Start Point with the gorgeous Hallsands and Beesands beaches that provide magnificent views...
