Slapton Ley is the largest natural lake in south-west England. Although it is only separated from the sea by a narrow shingle bar, it is entirely freshwater.The lake is surrounded by Reedbeds, marshes and woodland habitats and is a great location for wildlife and bird-watching. It's approx. 2.5 miles from Dittiscombe Holiday Cottages - about a 50 minute walk down leafy lanes and farmyard trails.
I love Salcombe in Devon, UK just such a stunning place, as you drive down the hill approaching Salcome you glimpse the sparkling sea through the trees, it looks like the south of France, do go if you can
