Property: Three To View For When The Holiday's Over

THE SUMMER is over, the schools are back and the locals have reclaimed the streets from the tourists. No better time than now, then, to buy Spinnaker Cottage, in Fore Street, Salcombe, Devon. The three-bedroom former fisherman's cottage is just off the waterfront, with shared access to the quay in front of it; and the cottage has views across the main anchorage and the mouth of the creek.

In a town built on a hill, Spinnaker Cottage has the advantage of being on the level, along with the pubs, shops and restaurants. Extensively restored by the present owners, the property has a 13ft sitting room with views across the water and a large kitchen with a doorway down to the boat store under the cottage. It is for sale at pounds 250,000 through Michael Weller & Co (01548 843246).

THE CROWDS looking for a parking space in Burford, in the Cotswolds, have all gone and peace has descended on Fulbrook, the Oxfordshire village just a mile's walk across the water meadows from the town. Honeysuckle Cottage, in a quiet no-through lane, is a one-bedroom stone cottage in a group of similar properties. It has a 12ft sitting room with leaded light windows, a beamed ceiling, a working fireplace and fitted bookshelves.

The cottage also has a 16ft kitchen dining room with part-stone and part- painted boarded walls and a flagstone floor. The upstairs bedroom has an open stone fireplace and a window seat overlooking the lane. There is an enclosed courtyard garden and stone outbuilding, and across the lane is a single garage. The cottage is for sale at pounds 129,000 through Mallams (01993 822666).

WILLOWHALE COTTAGE sits in half an acre of secluded gardens a mile from the beach at Aldwick Bay and two miles west of Bognor Regis town centre. The four-bedroom thatched cottage, listed grade II, has the kind of gardens usually seen only in magazines. The studded front door is so photogenic that it's been given a mention in its own right in the details. There is a sitting room and a lounge, both with inglenook fireplaces, a separate dining room and a large fitted kitchen with quarry tiled floor. Outside there is a workshop, summer house and garage (with thatched roof). For sale through GA at pounds 257,500 (01243 826311).
