The large modern bathroom is tiled throughout and has a great shower (pump). The Bunk bed room has comfortable beds, a wardrobe and double glazed patio doors that open out onto a spacious private enclosed patio. The double bedroom has a comfortable bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside cabinet. All duvet covers, sheets and towels are provided with extra blankets if needed. The large rear patio is a glorious sun trap, shaded from the sea breezes and the best place to dine, you can even see the sea from here. The 6 seater table and chairs have a parasol for shade and the patio is enclosed so if you have toddlers they are safe and secure in this area. The front patio has a small table with two chairs and a bench where you can sit to enjoy a glass of wine, all the while listening to the sounds of the sea and watching the ever changing long sunsets. The views are jaw dropping and one never tires of the 180 degree view from the coast all the way to Plymouth across to Cornwall, Cawsands and Mount Edgecume Park. There is always something going on all year round wether its Naval boats sailing by, regattas, surfers surfing the waves, or the abundant bird life swooping past. There's something for everyone. There are three golden sandy beaches to choose from and when the tides out an abundance of rock pools to explore. A smaller beach is a stones throw away from Beach Retreat. I've often had that entire beach all to myself. Just outside the chalet there are plenty of grassy areas for picnics or just relaxing. The Bovisand Beach cafe is a short walk away and serves breakfast and full meals, coffee, tea and home made cakes. Next door is a shop serving ice cream and all your beach supplies.If you need more supplies then a short drive away is Down Thomas village shop with groceries, newspapers and more. The coast path entrance is 2 minutes away, at the end of this easy walk you reach Heybrook Bay a small village set on the coast. There's a great pub here, the Eddystone which serves really good food and has a big patio with outstanding views. Beach Retreat can be your sanctuary, an oasis of calm, yet it can be that fun beach holiday away from the hustle and bustle where the sound of the sea is always present. Bovisand is an ideal home base if you wish to explore more of Devon and Cornwall. More

About the neighbourhood
Within easy driving distance is the city of Plymouth with its famous Plymouth Hoe and historic barbican. On the Hoe and Barbican there are many attractions to choose from, art galleries, unique shops, resturants, a world class aquarium and boat excursions to many coastal parks and villages. Plymouth city has many great shops as well as an indoor shopping mall, with food and coffee shops galore.There are cinemas, restaurants, theaters, and bingo halls in the city. Dartmoor National Park is close by with its ancient landscape, hikes, wild ponies, rivers, pretty villages, outdoor markets and craft centers. Further into Cornwall is the Eden Centre, Salcombe and Cotehele House which is only one of the many National Trust houses in this area.
Getting around
You need a car to get around, although there is a daily bus that goes into Plymouth from the close by village of Down Thomas. Arriving: If you are driving to Bovisand park for the first time please be aware that a navigation system will take you to the top of Bovisand lane and say you have arrived. This is not correct. You must continue driving straight along Bovisand Lane traveling down and down until you drive right into the park. Do not turn keep going until the rd runs out. Once inside the gate drive past the toll booth and cafe and we are the 3rd chalet from the end. A light yellow chalet.
