This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Idyllically situated alongside the river within the Avon Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is the perfect place for a well needed get away.

This pretty, detached cottage, stands on the route of the former Great Western Railway ’Primrose Line’, and is adjacent to the Loddiswell Railway Station, which is now the owners’ home. The Signal Box is an unusual property that offers something special, and just a little bit different. There are superb views through the trees, across the river and to the valley beyond. With direct access to almost 4-acres of outdoor space, there is an extensive network of private footpaths to explore at your leisure. Walkers and dog owners will love the convenience that this stunning property offers.
The building has been extensively renovated and converted into a wonderful property. It has been thoughtfully furnished and well-equipped with an upside down layout and an open plan living space comprising of a kitchen, dining area and a comfortable living area, complete with a cosy wood burner. A spiral staircase brings you downstairs where you will find a large shower room and two comfortable bedrooms.
The local town of Kingsbridge retains its character offering a wide variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafés and supermarkets. Just 220 yards downstream, on the opposite side of the riverbank is the Avon Mill Garden Centre, and alongside it you will find the small deli, shops and a gallery, which boasts a fabulous café. Nearby there are many historic houses, including Agatha Christie’s Greenway, Saltram and Overbecks, whilst Dartmouth and Totnes both have castles to explore. Close by you will find the South Hams beautiful beaches and some breathtaking coastal paths, including Bantham, Bigbury on Sea, South Milton Sands and Hope Cove.

    Añ amazing place and location. Richard & Nikki are exceptional hosts. Nothing was to much trouble and were on hand for any queries. The facilities in the signal box are of a high standard. Some may find the spiral staircase challenging. The signal box is designed with bedrooms downstairs and lounge upstairs which is bright and airy. The grounds and local walks were perfect for what we wanted. A very relaxing 2 weeks was had. We will deffinately return.

    We had an enjoyable stay at the Signal Box. It was very clean and nicely decorated and the welcome pack was a lovely gesture. We brought our dog with us as it was his first holiday but he really didn't get on with the stairs especially the internal spiral staircase which was a bit of a pain. We wouldn't stay at the Signal Box again but it is still a lovely place to stay/visit.

    I only say I will not stay there again because we wish to go to other areas of the country. The signalbox was an excellent base for touring South Devon. The welcome and help from the owners was outstanding and the welcome pack much appreciated. I did have a nagging doubt - I thought I had booked to stay in a historic / converted signalbox. That was not the case. Loddiswell never had a signalbox on this scale. This is a purpose built holiday cottage "in the style of" a signalbox and as a new / purpose built property it is absolutely fit for purpose. We have no hesitation in recommending it.

    Possibly the best holiday location we have stayed in. The beautifully presented Signal Box and the wonderful setting was the perfect place for us. The owners were a lovely couple. We very much look forward to returning.
