White Horses | Butter Bay | Bantham
Nestled in the heart of this beautiful South Hams village, White Horses is a stunning 19th-century property, steeped in local history. Whilst the various sections of the house can be booked individually, larger parties can book the whole house.
Its flexible accommodation has been cleverly designed for large groups but is suitable enough to provide a cosy hideaway for smaller families or couples. With a coastal or river view from most windows, this beautiful house sits magnificently above the Avon Estuary within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a newly introduced Marine Conservation Zone.
The unspoiled village of Bantham itself is an absolute joy. With its own local pub and a well-stocked village shop, its friendly locals are in abundance, ready to point you in the direction of the best surf, the finest cream tea, or the freshest seafood.
The beach itself is a watersports paradise. Miles of golden sand, crystal clear water, and incredible waves. Grab a surfboard, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard and head on down to this pristine beach, less than five minutes walk from the house.
If a sunbathe and a good book are more your thing, the Avon estuary beach is a calmer, quieter spot for you to relax and unwind. Whatever you choose to do – White Horses provides the ideal base to enjoy this incredible location any time of the year.

What makes White Horses so special from the owner
White Horses has a history so rich and vibrant, it’s impossible to put it all into words. If walls could talk then the ones here would certainly have a few stories to tell.
Generations of our family have holidayed at our beautiful riverside home and over the years we’ve almost become a permanent fixture in the village. There are so many of us, when we turn up we never know who else in the family we’re going to bump into.
When we’re here we don’t want to be anywhere else and when we’re anywhere else the only place we want to be is back in Bantham.
All the children love it here. particularly the large garden – Great for hide and seek, boules and building dens.
The hidden steps which lead down to a secret jetty where on an outgoing tide we can leap into the water and let the ‘Swoosh’ carry us down the estuary. Hours and hours of fun and memories that will last forever.
