The cottage is beautifully presented with light and airy, modern décor, and provides a cosy holiday home for five people.

There is a comfortable sitting room with patio doors to the enclosed garden, ideal for a summer barbecue, plus a spacious kitchen leading through an archway to the dining area.

Upstairs is the master en-suite double bedroom, a double and a single bedroom which share use of the family bathroom.

This is an ideal cottage to leave the car and take a ten minute stroll down to the quay on the Salcombe estuary, which is tidal and is particularly popular with sailing and wildlife enthusiasts.

Why not take a river cruise from Kingsbridge to the open sea at Salcombe and enjoy the views of various beautiful creeks along the way?

Or you can take the car and drive to Torcross for a lazy day on its four mile stretch of beach.

The South Hams has many stunning sandy beaches, interesting villages, and fabulous National Trust owned stretches of coastline, which are well worth visiting.

About the location

KINGSBRIDGE

Salcombe 5 miles; Dartmouth 12 miles; Totnes 13 miles; Plymouth 20 miles.

The busy little town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of a marine estuary in the attractive South Hams area of south Devon. During the summer season there are river excursions to Salcombe to see the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast. Visitors can take a walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles, an Elizabethan market arcade. Around the South Hams area there are picturesque ports, such as Dartmouth and Salcombe, together with sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands near Stoke Fleming and the two sandy beaches at Thurlestone. There are a host of small attractive villages in South Hams offering interesting pubs, local farm produce shops and pretty rows of cottages, plus further afield the waterfront city of Plymouth is a vibrant centre housing the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars.
