Leyside is a beautiful, cosy 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 is on the doorstep, an excellent pub/restaurant and tea rooms are a few yards walk away and there is a good local post office/village stores from which to buy the groceries.
It was love at first sight for us and we hope you feel the same!
On top of being an extremely picturesque and popular beach, Slapton Sands plays an important part in the survival of some of the UK’s rarest flora and fauna. So if you’re looking for a cracking beach holiday with the opportunity to do a little bit of exploring on the side, Slapton Sands should be on your list of ‘must visit’ destinations.
Great walks and if you like your scenery to have a bit of history then Slapton Sands has a very moving story attached to it. In 1943, the beach was taken over by the allied forces to use as a rehearsal area for the D-Day Landings. Unfortunately, a combination of live ammunition and poor visibility resulted in the deaths of 749 American servicemen. You can visit a stone monument which was set in place on Slapton Sands to commemorate the ill-fated ‘Operation Tiger’, along with a Sherman Tank at Torcross.
The seafront, a stone's throw from Leyside and visible from bedroom window, offers an array of quaint quality eateries and shops. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year around and there is a good offering of water sports.

Friendly, approachable and outgoing, always wanting to help! We moved to beautiful South Devon a year ago from Buckinghamshire and love sharing the views and beautiful area with our guests! Our two children in final year of A Levels and at uni and we both work full time (mostly from home) :-)
