This very special and unusual waterside property is a beautifully converted semi-detached boathouse in an unrivalled position on the shore of the beautiful Salcombe estuary in South Devon. Although just a short walk from Kingsbridge, its secluded and peaceful location makes it seem that you are far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Superb views from the balcony and most windows extend across the water to unspoiled countryside on the opposite side of the estuary. At high tide the water often laps the footings of the house, where small craft can be moored or beached and with a slipway nearby this is a great place to enjoy a watersport based holiday. At low tide the shoreline offers wonderful opportunities for bird watching, glorious walking along the estuary, crabbing for the young, or just to watch the passing yachts and river craft and enjoy the natural beauty of these stunning surroundings

The Devon region

Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than beautiful South Devon. Dramatic Dartmoor gives way to rolling hills, wooded valleys and stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away your days in market towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the South Devon coast. It's impossible not to fall in love with lazy, relaxed South Devon and it's otherworldly pace of life.



The secluded village of Hallsands is perfectly located for access to many of the South Coast.'s paths and beaches, with North Hallsands and Torcross beaches both within walking distance.

You'll find everything you need for a self catering holiday at the village shop in Torcross and the Farm Shop in Stokenham.

South Devon.

A 15 minute walk on The South West Coastal Path will take you to Beesands, a bustling little seafront village with one great Gastro pub and the increasingly popular Brittania fish shack- where you'll probably eat the most fresh caught fish anywhere in the UK!
