West Buckland is an unspoilt large hamlet located just inland from the coast and enjoying peace and tranquillity, being away from main road traffic and set within a valley which is protected from the prevailing wind. Nearby are the better known coastal villages of Thurlestone and Bantham. Thurlestone is renowned for its 18-hole links golf course but also has some fine beaches, a village inn, a shop, church and a hotel which offers country club facilities to non-residents, including squash courts, swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course. On the other side of West Buckland lies Bantham which is arguably one of the prettiest villages in the South Hams being at the mouth of the River Avon and protected by sand dunes and vast expanses of golden beach. The market town of Kingsbridge is close at hand, as is the famous sailing centre of Salcombe on another delightful South Hams estuary.
