Battisborough House, a beautiful South Devon country house for rent with panoramic sea views

Available to rent for residential trips for schools, as a large holiday home or as a venue for functions, meetings, classes & retreats

Battisborough House is an ideal location for a sea swim group. The views from the house are breathtaking and it is only a short ten-minute walk down to the sea. Upstairs there’s ample room, for twelve people to sleep in relatively luxurious bedrooms, and for more than twenty if sharing bunkroom-style accommodation. There is a hose down area and dedicated drying room for a wet salty swim kit, a large communal kitchen with a cosy Aga to huddle round after a chilly swim and gallons of hot water for everybody to enjoy a bath or shower in. As well as a large kitchen table which can seat twelve, there is also a dining room with refectory tables and a stunning sea view. There are two large reception rooms with comfy seating, although the best place to sit as long as the sun is shining is outside on the picnic tables with views south out across the English Channel. We are a sea swimming group from Hampshire and have been visiting BH for a number of years now. It is the perfect location for us to enjoy wonderful wild sea swims together!”
