    “The cottage was in a great location .”

    It was small but very clean and well equipped . The terrace was a bonus to have a pre dinner drink in the evening sunshine.

The property

Farthing Cottage is a cosy and characterful eighteenth century farmworkers’ cottage close to the centre of the charming market town of Kingsbridge.

Recently, this well-equipped, comfortable cottage has been tastefully modernised and completely refurbished.

It has a spacious open plan dining and living room, an adjacent modern kitchen, oodles of hot water for the newly-fitted bathroom, an airy kingsize bedroom and one cosy bunk room, perfect for kids.

Outside, on first floor level, there is a sunny patio garden with garden furniture, chimnea and with roof top views over Kingsbridge.

Perfectly placed for exploring this idyllic part of South Devon, the cottage adjoins an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is close to a range of fantastic South Devon beaches and the South West Coast Path.

Dartmouth, Salcombe, Plymouth and Dartmoor National Park are all within easy reach, while surfing can be enjoyed at Bantham, golfing at Thurlstone and Bigbury, and bird-watching at Slapton Ley Nature Reserve.

Meanwhile, Kingsbridge’s eclectic range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants is right on your doorstep, as are river cruises to Salcombe, watersport opportunities from kayaking to stand up paddle boarding, and indoor and outdoor play facilities for children.

This attractive market town has a regular Farmers’ Market and is also home to a number of special events throughout the year, including the Kingsbridge Food and Music Festival in June and the Kingsbridge Show in September.

Kingsbridge really is superbly located for a holiday at any time of year and Farthing Cottage is the perfect bolthole retreat for a restful and refreshing break.

About the location


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 local cinema and an award-winning pub. 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. Kingsbridge can be easily reached by train to Totnes and then a local bus service which will take you to Kingsbridge town centre.
