  • "Just fantastic I cannot imagine anything more beautiful and relaxing."

  • "We had a lovely week in this rural retreat and were made so welcome by the owners."

    The cottage is on a working farm so an idyllic setting. There is everything you need in terms of equipment and comfortable furniture and bed. Flowers and cream tea on arrival were a nice touch to our welcome. Kingsbridge is nearby and has a lovely walk by the water with interesting shops and supermarkets for provisions. Ideal base for trips to Dartmouth Salcombe Torcross and Blackpool Sands without too much driving. We hope to visit again in the future. Thank you

  • "Such a beautiful stay at Mixit Cottage."

    Was there to celebrate my birthday but it also turned out to be a surprise engagement holiday as well! Which made the stay all the more magical. Beni and Jonathan are lovely hosts. We had lovely cream teas and flowers on arrival and was also gifted a lovely bottle of wine to celebrate the engagement too which we were very much appreciative of. The cottage itself was really clean, cosy, romantic and warm. We didn't want to leave and felt blue when we got home. The swimming pool was lovely to use and we also had fun with the ping pong and pool table. It's very close to the Kingsbridge town centre so very convenient for shops, cafes and takeaways/restaurants. Bed was super comfortable, bathroom was lovely. We loved our stay so much we've recommended the cottage and Fixit to our family, who are now staying for Easter week. Definitely would love to stay again whenever we come down to South Devon next!

    We were met by the owner who was very friendly also she had left us fresh flowers and a cream tea - access was a bit of fun as it was down a narrow lane and with all the rain it was a bit soggy but cannot fault this property and will be going back

  • "Had a lovely stay and the proprietor was very welcoming."

    Accommodation was perfect and the use of the private pool was a great bonus, especially as the weather wasn't fabulous. Easy parking with plenty of room. Accessed by a country lane which was very pleasant to walk and easily manageable into Kingsbridge itself but not for those who can't walk far. Lots of amenities so food shopping was not an issue and enough coffee shops and pubs to choose from. Central for travelling and there was a bus station in the town where the buses took us to many of the large towns like Plymouth and Dartmouth. Would definitely recommend.

    It is in a very peaceful location, only a short distance out of Kingsbridge and had everything we needed for our week away. We especially liked the sunny patio area for evening bbqs and the layout of the cottage - living area upstairs and spacious bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The owners were very friendly, happy to answer our questions and welcoming us with a yummy cream tea. We enjoyed playing table tennis and pool but we didn’t make use of the swimming pool, as the weather was too good! Kingsbridge is in a good location for driving in various directions and has two supermarkets, as well as many other shops. We hope to return!

    Just outside the town in a small deep valley the cottage is a part of several farm buildings in a beautiful setting. It is quite unusual in some ways as there is a swimming pool available plus various spa facilities based in part of the farm that you can access. We just enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere , there was an area to sit outside in a lovely sun spot and have our meals . The whole outside area is full of beautiful fragrant flowers. It is a real little gem.

About the location

KINGSBRIDGE

Salcombe 5 miles; Bantham 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. Kingsbridge is home to a range of lovely independent shops and coffee shops, as well as a 3-screen cinema and an award-winning pub. During the summer season there are estuary excursions by ferry to Salcombe which lies on the banks of the Kingsbridge Estuary, making it one of the prettiest towns in South Devon. Salcombe is famous for its outstanding coastal views, rolling countryside, and is a watersports paradise for kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding and powerboating. It is packed with boutique shops, high street brands and independent producers, restaurants serving freshly caught seafood, and Salcombe Gin and Ice cream! Kingsbridge is perfectly located as a base to enjoy 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 in Totnes, 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. Kingsbridge can be easily reached by train to Totnes and then a local bus service which will take you to Kingsbridge town centre.
