  • "The house was very nice but the plumbing was a major issue."

    Anytime any tap running or toilet flushed there would be a 10 minute screeching noise which in some instances on the stay woke up sleeping children. I called to report this on Sunday and nothing was done. A plumber came round on Monday but couldn’t even access the room in the garage required so completely useless. Also the gate to enter the property from the driveway is not fit for purpose one of the hinges is even hanging off. This is a death trap with young children as the gate doesn’t close and a busy road outside the house.

  • "Victoria Lodge is a delightful holiday property."

    Great location, beautifully furnished and the beds were so comfortable. Laundry facilities were much appreciated as we had a small baby in our party and a 3 year old. Would definitely recommend and will return.

  • "House was lovely and very well equipped."

    Problem with the hot water was sorted out promptly. The top two bedrooms need a bit of attention - they weren’t the same standard as the other three - nowhere to hang clothes, curtain hanging off rails. There was also an unpleasant smell in the dining area from time to time which we couldn’t identify. Apart from that the house was lovely, clean and in a great spot. Thankyou.

  • "Amazing house and views of the estuary."

    Kingsbridge is a beautiful town although peak holiday was remarkably quiet and made Salcombe a bit of a disappointment. Would book it again BUT same period next year over 50% hike in rental - very disappointing so going abroad again to save money.

  • "The accommodation was absolutely fantastic."

    A large house for a couple of families staying together. The kitchen was massive, and with two large fridge freezers there was plenty of space to store all the food and chill the wine and beer. The kitchen was wonderfully equipped with large and small pots, so good for 8 of us cooking together. The gas BBQ was fabulous and got it's share of use too. The house is located right beside a park with great play equipment for the little ones, right next to the quayside, a few minutes from the town centre. I'd happily recommend this to anyone.

  • "The listing needs updating as the property is not 100% as described and the pictures are out of date."

    Disappointed that like on previous rentals there was no "welcome package" after a 300mile journey the simple things of pint of milk and loaf of bread is such an amazing welcome upon arrival. No visitors book to leave comments about area or local attractions like in other rental properties we have stayed in recently (including during covid). The property has an issue with a drain of some sort on the outside where if it rains a large dripping can be heard from the various bedrooms providing an uncomfortable nights sleep. Except from the above, the property was clean with great facilities and in a great location. On the whole my family enjoyed their stay and if a few issues where resolved then we would gladly visit again but the dripping would need to be resolved.

The property

Nestled at the heart of the bustling market town of Kingsbridge in the South Hams area of Devon, is this fabulous dwelling.

Set over three floors and with views over the pretty recreation park, tennis courts and the scenic Kingsbridge estuary, Victoria Lodge has been wonderfully designed with contemporary furnishings and stylish interiors throughout and offers a splendid setting for large family getaway to Devon, at any time of year!

Be sure to admire the traditional charm of the striking open fire, as you snuggle close to loved ones in the homely sitting room and begin to discuss all of your adventures for the upcoming days.

Pop the kettle on in the gorgeous kitchen/diner and enjoy a warm cup of coffee at the oak topped breakfast bar, before taking to the impressive range cooker to prepare a hearty afternoon snack for all to devour whilst gathered at the generous dining table.

Open up the patio doors and venture out into the well-kept garden for a moment of peace and quiet, before returning inside to the adjoining utility where you can keep on top of the laundry with the help of the washing machine and tumble dryer.

There is also the added benefit of a ground floor shower room.

Retire to the quaint snug, where you can enjoy a moment to yourself before taking the staircase up to the first floor to discover a large and luxurious Jack-and-Jill bathroom, home to both a bath and a spacious walk-in shower, that leads you through to a restful king-size bedroom.

Split over two levels, the first floor also boasts a second bathroom with a corner bathtub, along with two additional bedrooms consisting of a king-size and a twin which can be arranged into a super-king-size upon request.

Completing the bedrooms are two double bedrooms that can be found resting on the second floor, each finished with lovely fresh bedding and a plethora of storage space to house all of your belongings.

Spend your days learning of this market town's rich history with a visit to the quaint Cookworthy Museum.

The picturesque estuary is a stone's throw away, lending itself perfectly for canoeing and boating - hire a paddle board from the Crabshell Inn and discover the coastline from the water.

Perhaps enjoy a seafood treat later, or hop aboard the River Maid for a leisurely ride to the sailing town of Salcombe.

Stock up on treats from local artisan shops or stop off at one of the many well-established restaurants within the area for a delicious evening meal.

Visit Quayside leisure centre just over the road boasting a full sized swimming pool and offering many leisure activities.

Bask in the sunshine on Salcombe North Sands or visit the Salcombe Maritime Museum, before crossing over to East Portlemouth for an exhilarating hike along the South West Coast Path to the iconic Start Point lighthouse.

Enjoy afternoon tea at The Gara Rock Hotel, climb to the top of Burgh island to overlook the Art Deco style hotel favoured by Agatha Christie and Oscar Wilde.

Wander the exotic gardens of the National Trust owned Overbeck's and see Thurlestone Rock, before grabbing a snack at the Beach Hut.

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.
