Property Details

Resting right at the head of Frogmore Creek in Devon is this wonderful, single-storey cottage, Creekside. With three bedrooms sleeping up to six guests and excellent amenities, this cottage is a perfect base for a memorable holiday in this stunning part of the South Hams in Devon, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With off-road parking for two cars, you will have no problem getting settled in at Creekside; enter the front gate into the property's enclosed, lawn garden and follow the gravelled path to the entrance, where you can leave your boots and coats, or dry off the dog, in the tiled porch.

Ideal for self-catering holidays, Creekside has a well-equipped galley-style kitchen/diner with a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, plenty of storage space and a pantry, as well as comfortable dining seating for four guests (6 at a pinch), with views out across the creek. Walking along dramatic coastlines and in the elements calls for an evening by the open log fire in the sitting room, with sofas and comfy chairs to curl upon, and a Smart TV to stream your family's favourite movie. Large bi-fold doors lead out onto the decking and give fantastic views down the tidal creek. A handy external utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer means you can pack light and not worry about muddy walks. There’s even a cold water shower outside for the dog! Younger guests can make use of 'The Piggery', a rustic games room for somewhere to play on rainy days.

You will find three lovely bedrooms with pleasant views across the creek and storage space, the first being a king-size with a convenient en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower over, another king-size, and a twin. The whole family can make use of the stylish bathroom, offering a large bath and a rainfall showerhead to stand under and enjoy a hot morning shower, followed by a toasty towel fresh off the heated towel rail. A lawn area surrounds Creekside with plants, shrubbery and an apple tree, whilst the rear decking just off the sitting room has a picnic bench for dining alfresco, or a cocktail while you watch the sun go down over the creek. The deck overhangs the spectacular Frogmore creek which is tidal, and Creekside has (gated) private steps down into it. You can launch your own canoes or paddleboards from here, or your dinghy from the public slipway which is just 30 metres away. Or try fishing or crabbing. Or enjoy this AONB with a walk along the creek at low tide to investigate the birdlife and old lime kilns on its shores. You might be lucky and see a seal.

Walking over the bridge into the village you'll find a fantastic bakery, a traditional pub perfect for dinners out, and Frogmore's family-focused annual regatta in August. Keen walkers will find lots of variety in the area. Creekside places you in a great location for Devon's outstanding beaches, so be sure to pack a picnic and head to Torcross, Mill Bay, Gara Rock or Bantham or to swim or surf. The bustling old town of Kingsbridge is just a short drive west, with a variety of restaurants, pubs and shops to explore, or learn to paddleboard at the local school.

Salcombe lies to the south with a lovely harbour, sandy beaches to stroll along, and a cool vibe. The coastal walk to Bolt Head is a must for avid walkers. Travelling north takes you to Dartmouth, a thriving town with high streets packed with shops and eateries, as well as art galleries, and local museums. The Dartmouth Steam Railway can take you to Paignton or Kingswear near Agatha Christie’s home at Greenway. There are several National Trust properties to see in the area.

Make Creekside your tranquil base to explore the coast, villages and landscapes of Devon with your family or friends.
