Leyside is a sweet, fresh and very comfortable, semi-detached cottage that overlooks the beautiful Slapton Ley in South Devon, a freshwater inland lake that is separated from the sea by a three mile long shingle ridge. Set in the middle of the thriving village of Torcross, there is no need to get in the car as the beach, with watersport facilities, is on the doorstep, an excellent pub/restaurant and tea rooms are a few yards walk, there is a good local post office/village stores from which to buy the groceries and the National Nature Reserve of Slapton Ley is a haven for bird wildlife enthusiasts, all this and more to enjoy from the cottage!


GardenOn nice days, when you want to relax you can sit out in Leyside's garden and enjoy the sun shine. Children also love the outdoors so it can be a great place for them. Although, with young children you should always check any garden is safe for them.
