About the home
A must for couples who want to escape the world, the property, a wing of a magnificent contemporary house, is brand new, smart, and very stylish and has glorious views through the trees and grounds across the tidal reaches of the estuary. Surrounded by seven acres of grounds, the property has its own easy path down to the foreshore. The private, secluded shore side beach where you can launch your own kayak or small dinghy is ideal for barbecues, or a spot to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sunshine and admire the really lovely views across the wide waters of the estuary.

The West Country / 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 Kingsbridge / West Charleton area
The market town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of the Kingsbridge/Salcombe Estuary and has been the principal market town of the region since 962AD. It is said to have derived its name from a Saxon king when on reaching Dodbrooke during his travels, was unable to cross the stream, so a volunteer from a local family carried the king across the Dod on his back. Kingsbridge to this day remains the capital of the South Hams and offers an assortment of things to do and see, including an excellent range of shops. Here you can buy some first rate quality clothes and there are several shops with a creative and artistic flair, a large supermarket and there are also some outstanding restaurants, plus of course several pubs, some being waterside. A round trip river cruise of approximately an hour to Salcombe is a very pleasant and relaxing way of seeing the countryside and many of the estuary birds that inhabit this unique and exceptionally beautiful stretch of water.
