About Bantham

Bantham sits on the mouth of the Devon Avon. It is one of a host of pretty villages dotting the inlets and creeks of the lovely Devon coast.

It offers splendid cliff scenery for walkers, and mostly low tide reveals unspoilt sandy coves for sunbathers. In the tiny inlets visitors can see old boathouses, usually these are best explored by boat as some remain almost derelict, whilst others have been gloriously restored and put again to good use.

Bantham beach is an excellent surfing destination attracting keen surfers from all over, whilst its firm sands, glistening rock pools and dunes make Bantham equally ideal for families. There is a friendly village shop, and its pub, the Sloop Inn is famous for miles around.

The streets are lined with attractive properties, some hiding under thick thatches, others more typical of fishermen's cottages to be found all along the wild Devonian coast.

Golf and Tennis can be found near-by, and there are wonderful coast and valley views
