The West Country / Devon region
South Hams District covers an area of 350 square miles and has 60 miles of coastline. With its southerly aspect sheltered by the granite uplands of Dartmoor, the South Hams enjoys one of the mildest climates in the whole of mainland Britain. Indeed, the South Hams name comes from the old English word "hamme" meaning an enclosed or sheltered place.
The South Hams is a rich natural area and 130 square miles (337 sq.km.) of the district is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with 30.86 square mile coverage of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). There are 62 miles (100 km) of coastal path and 16 miles (26 km) of beaches.
Approximately 30 miles (50 km) of coastline is owned by the National Trust and 47 miles (75 km) is designated Heritage Coast.
South Hams has such a diverse and beautiful natural environment combined with a mild climate that it's not hard to see why visitors return here year after year.
Two coastlines offer miles of sweeping golden beaches featuring some top surf spots and dramatic cliff-top walks, the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks provide perfect opportunities for getting active in wild, unspoilt open expanses and the quintessential rolling Devonshire countryside is an idyllic patchwork of fields, farms and overgrown hedgerows teeming with wildlife.
Charming towns such as, quaint old villages and busy fishing harbours are just the thing for sampling a traditional British seaside holiday.
The Kingsbridge / Sherford area
At the head of an estuary named after it, Kingsbridge is reckoned as the capital of the South Hams - the most southerly part of the South Devon area. Kingsbridge and the lands around it passed into the possession of the Buckfast Abbey some time after the Norman Conquest and in 1219 the Abbot was granted the right to hold a market in Kingsbridge, his monks selling their produce of honey, fruit, vegetables and thick cream.
There are still regular markets on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and a Farmers Market on the first Saturday of each month.
A brief stroll around Kingsbridge soon tells of its maritime past - shipbuilding, ropemaking and other industries have been the town's mainstay, and shipbuilding enterprises prospered till the late 19th century building wooden coastal and oceangoing vessels.
The little lanes off Fore Street are very pleasant for an idle hour or two, and there's plenty of shopping interest as well as the excellent Cookworthy Museum - set in a 17th Century Grammar school and named after William Cookworthy, born in the town in 1705. It was Cookworthy who invented the English porcelain industry when he discovered china clay in Cornwall. If you require cultural diversion, there are two art galleries and a private cinema. There's also a leisure centre for more athletic diversions.

This is a beautiful Barn in a tranquil setting. The property is very well equipped and spacious. It has been well maintained and is a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding areas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner provided lots of information about the Barn, the area, directions etc., and all our questions were answered promptly and courteously. The “locals” were friendly and helpful, and in all, we cannot wait to return! This property is a credit to it's owners. You will not regret staying here. Thanks Kevan!!
