About Christopher Osborne
My wife, Sharon and I, have been holidaying in Thurlestone for the last 8 years or so. In the last 6 years we have been lucky enough to share this amazing location with our energetic daughter (and now our 1 year old daughter) who both absolutely love visiting the local beaches. Our flat is great for couples and families with children of all ages. We have accommodated the needs of families by providing a travel cot, high chair, monitors and toys based on our own experiences of renting holiday homes and have tried to think of everything to make life easier and enjoyable for you! There are a number of DVD's for adult and children for relaxing whilst admiring the wonderful views from the sofa. We hope you enjoy the flat as much as we do!
Christopher Osborne purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Christopher Osborne chose Thurlestone
The most relaxing location we have ever stayed in! Amazing views and great location. Fantastic for couples and families, golfers, bird watchers, walkers (we are literally on the door step of South West Coast path), surfers, paddleboarders, fisherman, or for those that purely wish to relax and take in the views.
What makes this Apartment unique
Stunning views, quiet location in close proximity to four amazing beaches, village with local pub and great walks. Bantham beach has been voted one of the top 10 beaches in Europe and is described by Lonely Planet as “a true all-rounder, good for surfers, families and walkers.”

Half term break
Having already visited previously we wanted to return to Thurlestone with the children during half term. Despite the weather we had a good week. The apartment is lovely and has fantastic views. It has everything you need for all ages. We had a slight hiccup with the arrival and the cleaner but this was soon rectified and Chris the owner dealt with this quickly and sufficiently. We were unable to use the bath during the week due to suspected plumbing issues linked to the main building, which is currently being investigated and fixed. This was a little inconvenient as easier with the baby but the shower in the 2nd bathroom was fine and we were able to manage. Chris was in contact regularly, updating us. This certainly didn’t put us off and we will be returning in the future. It really is a lovely place to stay and we would highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.
Room with a view in Thurlestone.
Fabulous property with large rooms and amazing views down to the sea from Thurlestone Rock all the way to Burgh Island. Very well provisioned with quality equipment and also provided with some helpful instructions on local amenities and attractions. The view is amazing.
Beautiful apartment with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Absolutely stunning views to the coast and surrounding countryside. Loved the location as you can see so much. The area is beautiful too, lovely beaches and good local pubs to walk to. The Beach House cafe/restaurant is a must on South Milton Sands, excellent food all freshly made. Would definitely recommend this property!
The flat is in a perfect location...easy access to Thurlestone village...numerous walks and just the best views! The flat is very spacious...immaculately clean...warm and despite the constant winds blowing outside...very quiet. It has everything you need and an instruction book for all the electronics. Chris was easily available to reply to a couple of initial questions(we didn’t find the black welcome book until the second day)...we had such a great trip we are already looking at when we can return.
Fabulous flat with amazing views very clean . Beautiful beaches all around, views off Burgh Island were just amazing . We ate at the village inn (just walk to the corner of the garden and across one field and your there!) the hope and anchor at hope cove the sloop inn at Bantham and the ship inn at Noss mayo all were excellent, we will definitely return .
Fantastic property in a lovely location and spotlessly clean. Much bigger than it looks online.
We've just returned from a fantastic week at the Downs and would definitely recommend this property. The location and views are amazing, beaches are walkable and Thurlestone itself is just a short walk along the path. It's right on the coastal path as well so is great for longer walks. The property itself is excellent, possibly the cleanest property we've stayed in, and the pictures online don't do it justice, it's much more spacious than it looks. Chris is a great host and very good at responding to any questions we had. The only reasons that this wasn't a 5 were because there didn't seem to be a hairdryer, although this was specifically listed, which meant a swift amazon prime delivery was needed, and because of a slight issue in getting hold of the keys. This seems to have been a one off though and Chris sorted it really quickly for us. Overall a wonderful, well-equipped property which is definitely worth a stay.
The apartment is walking distance to the Village Inn pub (excellent food and drink), and village shop/ post office plus Thurlestone Golf and tennis club.
The Downs is within walking distance to both Thurlestone Sands (overlooking Thurlestone Rock) and Bantham beaches. Bantham is a small village with amazing beach, and pub (The Sloop). The beach is wonderful and overlooks Burgh Island. You can hire surf and paddle boards and there is a gastro van in the car park. It has been voted by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 beaches in Europe!
The apartment is around 5 miles from Kingsbridge and 8 miles from Salcombe.
