Surrounding Area:

West Buckland is a picturesque hamlet located within a short stroll from the coastal villages of Bantham and Thurlestone.

Set away from the main road traffic, the hamlet is set within a valley which provides protection from the wind.

Bantham beach, famous for its surfing, offers a range of watersport lessons and equipment hire. Lifeguards are on duty in the summer months (from May - September) and a no dog policy is in place from May - October but there are plenty of walks around the sand dunes and along the riverside to walk with your pooch!

The Sloop Inn, Bantham, "your local" serves up some of the best food in the area, (make sure you leave some room for one of their fabulous desserts!) 

There's also the Gastrobus, located by the beach which is open daily 10am-5pm serving up breakfast, snacks and pizzas!

The coastal path leading from Batham to the village of Thurlestone is a lovely moderate 3-mile walk and it's dog friendly! The Village Inn, Thurlestone, is another popular local pub that serves up delish food and for a more rustic beach -themed affair, try The Beach House, located at the far end of Thurlestone beach it is renowned for it's grilled fish and seafood dishes.

The market town of Kingsbridge offers all amenities from butchers, bakers, pharmacies and supermarkets. There's also a leisure centre with a gym and indoor swimming pool, two play parks, tennis courts, pubs, restaurants, take-aways, paddle-board hire and river trips up the estuary to Salcombe.
