Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

This spacious and comfortable family holiday home nestles in a valley that leads down to Bowcombe creek in South Devon, a pretty stretch of tree lined water that runs under Bowcombe bridge and into the beautiful Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary. This sheltered tidal waterway is a haven for wildlife and a Mecca for boating enthusiasts with every type of watersport available. The cottage comes with a tidal mooring suitable for boats up to 4 metres, so guests who bring their own boats can drift down to the vibrant town of Salcombe with its golden beaches or motor a short way up to the quayside at Kingsbridge where you can tie up alongside the Crabshell Inn for a delicious meal and some liquid refreshment. Bridge Park Cottage has a large sunny lounge, a spacious farmhouse style kitchen/diner and four comfortable bedrooms - two en suite, as well as a sheltered garden and plenty of parking. Apart from the estuary and the family beaches that abound in this area, including the surfing beaches of Bantham and Bigbury there are some lovely coastal and country walks.

About this location

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 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.
