Kingsbridge

More than a tourist destination, the ancient town of Kingsbridge marks the crossroads between Dartmoor, Torbay and Plymouth. This beautiful region is known as South Hams and is rich in both wild countryside and busy, picturesque towns.

ingsbridge is ostensibly a market town, its heritage drawn from the Buckfast Abbey Monks trading their produce of vegetables, honey and cream in the 13th century. The vibrant market is still held regularly and is very much in keeping with Devon’s focus on sustainable farming and locally sourced goods.

The town has been awarded the original ‘Walkers are Welcome’ accreditation in Devon and indeed, from the early Spring through to the mild, late Winters, Kingsbridge provides a variety of walks and cycle paths for all abilities, including the new Family Walking and Wildlife Activity Trail.

Being situated on the Kingsbridge estuary means water based activities are in abundance, including canoeing, carp fishing and sailing from the nearby Salcombe Harbour. The town has a trendy surf vibe thanks to the excellent Bantham surfing beach very close by, and a lesson at the surfing academy is a super, fun day out for families.

The arable land, lush pastures and clean seas produce a world-class array of foods. Restaurants and pubs in the Kingsbridge area specialise in superb fish and fresh vegetarian rich in natural flavours. A traditional South Devon crab sandwich is a must for all visitors and don’t forget to treat yourself to a gooey Devon afternoon tea.

This is a charming and amiable town that welcomes visitors throughout the year. The best way to get a sense of the true Devonian lifestyle is to stay locally, so search for cottages in Kingsbridge and discover a unique way to accommodate your holiday.

    "Sands flanked by rock, with wooded cliffs above – true Devon coastal character . . ."

    The wooded cliffs at Bolt Tail form a backdrop to this sandy cove on what is renowned as one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the South Hams. These holiday cottages are set within 100 yards of the safe sandy beach – an unrivalled position for enjoying the seaside, but also perfect for fishing, sailing and water-skiing (with a dinghy-launching slip 200 yards away, and facilities for larger boats at nearby Salcombe). The cottages are in the centre of this charming seaside village, with its pretty thatched cottages, inns, restaurants and small shop within a short walk. The South Devon Coastal Footpath winds along the cliffs and through Hope Cove between Salcombe and Thurlestone, with opportunities for magnificent walking amongst glorious coastal scenery.
    The maritime attractions continue slightly further afield. Salcombe, 4 miles away, is one of the most prestigious sailing centres in the country. It offers extensive sandy beaches, too, and a wide choice of fascinating shops, boutiques and restaurants in its quaintly winding narrow streets. The estuary here is a kaleidoscope of brightly coloured craft of all kinds at their moorings – a paradise for sailing enthusiasts. Thurlestone, 2 miles to the west, can be reached either by car or via the coastal path. It boasts yet more expanses of golden sands, a regular feature of this lovely coastline. But, in addition, it has a superb cliff-top links golf course, edged by sandy coves, tennis courts and picturesque streets of thatched cottages overlooking the bay. Kingsbridge, the ‘capital’ of the South Hams, has a good choice of interesting shops, a museum and a sports centre with squash, badminton and bowling. Boating and diving trips can be arranged in the Salcombe Estuary, and boats are available for hire. Within easy driving distance are the historic cities of Plymouth and Exeter and Kitley Caves. The wide open spaces and breathtaking scenery of the Dartmoor National Park are less than an hour by car, and there are many National Trust properties, stately homes and interesting gardens within a short drive.

Comfortably furnished, each has a small first floor sitting-out area with furniture. They are ideally located for a Devon holiday by the sea. Shop/P.O. 50 yards.
