Lamacraft House, located on the Start Point peninsula in South Hams, is an iconic property 85 metres above sea level, at the end of a no-through road. It offers breathtaking sea views towards Start Bay and picturesque vistas of Devon hills. Adjacent to private woodlands, you’ll hear the sound of owls at night which add to its serene atmosphere. This private home, next to the non-working Lamacraft Farm, is in a small hamlet, offering a perfect retreat from everyday life.

Lamacraft House has recently undergone a full and extensive refurbishment and offers a taste of luxury and sophistication with everything you need for a wonderful relaxing holiday and a place to switch off from the world. 

The property

Recently refurbished, exudes luxury and sophistication. It can accommodate up to 10 guests in five bedrooms, and welcomes up to 2 well-behaved dogs over 2 years old. Amenities include an 8-person luxury Hydro Pool hot tub, a 7ft professional pool table, and a PlayStation 5.


The extensive renovation in 2024 has beautifully merged modern comforts with elegant interior design. The house features spacious rooms, a large lounge with a 14KW log burner stove, a Smart TV with Sky TV, sofas, and a window seated area perfect for a round of cards or game of chess! The professional slate bed pool table and built-in Sonos ceiling speakers ensure entertainment for all.

The expansive kitchen-dining area offers sea views and opens into a sunroom – perfect for unwinding. The dining area includes a second wood-burning stove and a table for 10. The modern kitchen is equipped with a double oven, microwave, induction hob, and a kitchen island with a built-in Sonos speaker system. Additional amenities include a Nespresso machine, undercounter fridge/wine fridge, boiling water tap, dishwasher, and a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Upstairs, a central open hallway leads to five uniquely designed bedrooms. The master bedroom and pink bedroom offer stunning sea views, while others open to a south-facing sun terrace. The master bedroom features a sumptuous Super King bed, countryside views, a large ensuite shower room with two sinks, and toothbrush chargers and sea view from the loo!

The other bedrooms include a mix of Super King and twin beds, with oodles of wardrobe space to unpack and feel at home with some offering ensuite facilities and balconies overlooking Devon hills.

The family bathroom has a shower over the bath and a double sink. Every room has been thoughtfully designed to surprise and delight, with sea views even from unexpected places.


The south-facing front garden is a tranquil space, leading to the main entrance. The rear garden, accessible from the kitchen and sunroom, features an outdoor dining table for 10, a Webber charcoal BBQ, and a luxurious Hydropool Platinum hot tub on a raised deck. The level lawn is ideal for croquet, and is the perfect place for star gazing on a clear night!
