Boathouse Cottage, a delightful period cottage, has remarkable and most attractive views across its own lovely garden that winds down to the foreshore of Frogmore Creek, a dreamy inlet of the Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary. Here it is possible to sit on the waterside terrace, glass in hand and watch the endlessly changing tidal ebb and flow of the creek and the accompanying bird life. Comfortably furnished and well equipped the cottage is situated on the main coastal road that runs through Frogmore village which has a good pub and shop/home bakery. The cottage is well located in the heart of the South Hams where there are miles of cliff walks around Start Point, golden sandy coves and beaches close by, bird watching at Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve, horse riding and golf all within easy distance. However, you may not want to go far, the beautiful garden and its gorgeous waterside location will all ensure that Boathouse Cottage keeps you there.
