Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
on the embankment in Kingsbridge, a neat and practical base - one of sixteen individual apartments hidden from the road behind a quayside Victorian former customs store. Access to the apartment is via a lift from the covered, private parking (so easy for those with mobility problems) or via steps. Inside, the apartment is smart and comfortable. Good-sized open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with French windows to terrace, TV/DVD. Two bedrooms – a double (5' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite) and French windows to side terrace, and a room with two singles. Bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). Washing machine in hall cupboard. The apartment has an unusual amount of outdoor space with a terrace to each side, one (table/chairs) offering estuary glimpses and Mediterranean planting; the other, accessed from the double bedroom, is more secluded. No children under 8. An owner-loved and enjoyed holiday home and a perfect base for exploring the South Hams by boat, bus or car.

The West Country region
The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.
Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton's long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth's beach and Salcombe's location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don't need to be brash; Bigbury's huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.
Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area's heart; Plymouth – the West Country's biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area's edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.
Kingsbridge: small market town (excellent shops, good pubs, leisure centre with indoor pool) and waterfront (sailing, motor boats) at the head of the many-creeked Kingsbridge estuary (boat trips) leading to the sea at Salcombe. Bantham beach, 4 miles. Tremendous variety of beautiful places and things to see/do within 5 or 6 miles.
