Local area:

Now, when it comes to exploring the local area, you’re in for a treat. The South Hams region of South Devon is renowned for its stunning coastline and unspoiled interior. You’ll discover endless opportunities and attractions, from the glorious coast and beaches to charming towns and villages. Guests often find that there’s so much to see and do that they run out of time, making a return visit a tempting prospect.

Make plans for action-packed days of watersports and adventure, perhaps even a visit to the Woodlands Adventure Park for a day of family fun. For a more relaxed experience, bask in the sun on the beautiful Blackpool Sands beach or by the outdoor swimming pool at Gitcombe. If you’re a food enthusiast, the South West is a haven of local, seasonal food and drink. Artisan producers, butchers, bakers, and farmers’ markets offer a chance to savor and purchase local delights.

Eating out is a delight, with restaurants, cafes, and waterside inns that cater to every taste, from Michelin-star dining to simple beach shack fare. And, of course, a visit to the coast wouldn’t be complete without indulging in the fresh seafood and savoring fabulous fish and chips. The British food experience at its freshest.

The South Hams region also boasts a wealth of local artisans, independent shops, boutiques, and galleries, making it a haven for creative purchases. Be sure to explore the charming towns of Totnes, Dartmouth, and Salcombe, where retail therapy and a decadent Devon cream tea await. In Devon, we proudly put the clotted cream before the jam on our scones. So, whether you seek relaxation or adventure, Primrose Retreat and the South Hams region offer an extraordinary experience for your next getaway.


With its private gardens, stunning views, and alfresco dining area, Primrose Retreat ensures plenty of privacy and seclusion. A BBQ area is also available, perfect for preparing your favourite grilled dishes and hosting outdoor gatherings.
