Lower House West is a spacious Georgian farmhouse situated in the coastal village of East Prawle. Ideal for families and walkers alike to enjoy a self-catering holiday in this special part of South Devon. The house is pet friendly and has a private right of way down a track (about a 20-minute walk) to the beach and the South West Coastal Footpath. East Prawle has a village shop and a well-known local pub – the Pigs Nose Inn. The property benefits from a wonderful suntrap conservatory, sea views, a private garden and parking. The local beaches are especially popular for swimming and rock pools. The area is also famous for bird watching.
There are abundant beaches around the south coast of Devon, many sandy ones to the North and West, but when you are around Prawle, then this is where it gets rocky and exciting! No wonder they have had lots of coastguards settle there over the years.
Prawle Point is famous for its rugged coastline, "raised" beaches, rural backdrop, the oft-fierce seas and blustery weather. All in all a great place to take your dog as it's quieter, people-wise, more of an outdoor adventure and wildlife location.
This is not a Spanish beach retreat, although a hot summer welcomes a cooling breeze. For all you fishermen, there are excellent opportunities to pull in the bass, pollack, mackerel and some sizeable wrasse from the rocky crevices.
From East Prawle Village Green
The part of the Coast Path has some uneven and rocky sections, with both green lanes and surfaced roads. There are several stretches of fairly steep ascent and descent.
This is the Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'lookout', especially as one of the country's most southerly points, it has been useful for keeping watch over the English Channel for centuries. Looking out for enemy vessels, French, Spanish and more, and for keeping a close eye on ships running aground and sailors in trouble at sea.
It is the first and last touch-down point for several migrant birds, and the cliffs in the area are also noted for their populations of rare bees and wasps. Records show people have been farming and fishing here for thousands of years, and the ancient paths they trod between the village, the fields and the shoreline are the ones still in use today.
A good walk in May and Autumn, with a bounty of arriving and fledged birds plus the hum of insects.
Plus, don't forget to visit the local pub, the Pigs Nose Inn, which has countless awards and is Dog Friendly.
