� 50 yards up a little lane from the creek in South Pool, with stunning views of the estuary and the surrounding village, a wonderful, spacious, ‛upside down� house converted from two old barns. Large, enclosed, paved courtyard immediately outside with steps down to sunken dining area (huge slate-topped table/benches, stone-built barbecue) - great for alfresco dining and evening sun. Beyond a five bar gate, an acre of sloping paddock overlooking the village, the bottom part of which is lawned with a play frame (Wendy house, slides, swings), brilliant for children to let off steam.

Inside, very attractively �own home� with original art work and good quality furnishings. From the hall, spiral staircase up to kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, double oven/ceramic hob, larder fridge) with porthole window looking into the living room, French windows to balcony (table/chairs, views), cloakroom (loo) and door to lane. Huge, beamed living room (26� x 15�) with open fire in raised hearth, TV/Sky/DVD/video and, at one end, glass box/window with splendid views over the creek. On this floor, a generous-sized triple-aspect bedroom (6� zip-linked double or twin) with beams, en suite bathroom (suite with separate power-shower) and village and estuary views. On the ground floor, another large bedroom (6� zip-linked double or twin) with darts, en suite shower-room (suite) and French windows to courtyard, and a double (5� wrought iron bed) with en suite tiled bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Large utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer) for dogs or drying wetsuits and beach stuff. From the living room, more spiral stairs down to small kitchenette area (sink, small larder fridge) and folding doors to courtyard - a handy area for preparing trays with drinks and nibbles to be enjoyed outside. Also at this end of the house, a large twin with en suite tiled bathroom (suite with large walk-in shower).  

A lovely spacious family house in a 'Swallows and Amazons'-type area, just a stroll from an excellent pub.

The Devon 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.

South Pool

South Pool: picture-postcard village (prize-winning good food pub, fine church) at the head of a creek (sailing/boating) off the Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary. Sandy beaches, slipway, pontoon and moorings for your boat, and pedestrian ferry to Salcombe at East Portlemouth, 3 miles. Lannacombe (lovely sandy beach) 2 miles; Gara Rock (beautiful sandy beach, good restauarant), 3; Start Point (lighthouse, cliff walks, sea-bird watching), 3�; Kingsbridge, 5..
