The Sitting Room

The cottage, now a self-catering holiday cottage for rental, has always had a happy, family feel and an individual style. The rooms are spacious and the furniture is comfortable and cottage style. The walls of Foss Cottage, East Prawle are covered with pictures. The sitting room is large and bright and has a lovely open fire with night storage & electric heaters for backup. There is a record player (if the last visitors have not broken it). The bookshelves are full of light reading and there is a huge store of games to play in the evening or on a rainy day. There is a panoramic view of the Channel.

Foss has been in our family for nearly 50 years. We love it and we think you will too. It has everything you need for the perfect holiday

Bedrooms at Foss Cottage

The two main bedrooms are double rooms – large, light and airy, facing the sea  with a breath-taking view of the sea by day and night – fabulous when the moon is out.. There is a smaller back room with single/twin beds more suitable for children but possible for adults(no view) and another single/twin bedroom (which can be made into a double bed) with a view facing west. There are two bathrooms. . Sleeps 8/10 (8 adults, but more if some are children). Camping is possible in the orchard. Children love it,  although you have to look for a flat corner.

The bathrooms at Foss Cottage

There are two and both have been recently modernised. Upstairs at the back of the house, there is a modern shower room with underfloor heating, heated towel rail and a modern electric shower. On the first floor, there is a charming older style bathroom with a tub bath that has been re-enamelled and faces the window so you have a view when lying in it. Also with a towel rail and underfloor heating, and beautiful panelled walls – it is a delight but has not lost its original style.

The Orchard

There is a large garden with an orchard, with space for children to play and camp. Paths to seats above the house give wonderful views over the seascape. You can sit up there and read where no one can find you. Sometimes at spring half term lambs are born in the field in front. Big sailing boats, or once a Russian style submarine, and even the Royal yacht Britannia when it still existed, pass quite close in front. The sea and sky change constantly and there is always something to watch. There is a micro-climate at East Prawle and often the wind holds the clouds back over the land and we can have sun in Prawle on cloudy days
