Evans Estates, which has owned the land, buildings and popular surfing beach for nearly 100 years, have decided to sell next spring and Bantham, complete with sandy beach, pubs, thatched houses and a quayside, plus surrounding Devonshire land is expected to go for 10 million GBP alone. However residents of the family-owned village, which nestles in the South Hams and has parts in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, are concerned that the new owners may reverse the anti-commercialism ethos of the Evans Estate and that the natural and unspoilt spirit of the area could be in jeopardy.
