Outside is an enclosed rear patio and gravel garden with outdoor furniture and a chiminea, ideal for enjoying alfresco meals and watching the peaceful night sky, surrounded by the warmth of the fire. The rear garden is also ideal to store those paddleboards or bikes on the odd day that you won't be using them. The bustling town of Kingsbridge is a short walk away, with a good selection of shops, cafés, other eateries and an award-winning pub, as well as a museum and two art galleries. Visitors can enjoy scenic walks along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles, an Elizabethan market arcade. Situated on the edge of the South Devon AONB, within the attractive South Hams area, Kingsbridge rests at the head of a marine estuary, and during the summer months you can take a boat excursion to Salcombe, enjoying an abundance of wildlife along the way. Salcombe rests mostly on the steeper, west side of the Kingsbridge Estuary, and is a popular resort with tourists and sailing enthusiasts, known for its incredible scenery. Here, you can enjoy a visit to the maritime museum, the 20th century Edwardian property Overbeck's, with fascinating art & history collections, the ruins of its castle, Fort Charles, overlooking the estuary and close to North Sands Beach, one of two stunning sandy beaches you can spend the day relaxing on, and you can't visit Salcombe without trying some of its incredible gin at the Salcombe Gin Distillery. From here, you are within easy reach of the National Trust's Snapes Point, with walking trails along the estuary, panoramic views and opportunities to see fascinating wildlife, while just across the estuary, on the other side of Salcombe's harbour, is the small town of East Portlemouth, with a stunning sandy beach and positioned on a hill, where you can enjoy views as far as Dartmoor. Keen walkers can join the South West Coast Path in both directions, taking in some outstanding coastal views along the way, with a venture east taking in the incredible English Riviera, a section of the South Devon coastline thought to resemble the magnificent French Riviera. The seaside town of Paignton is a short drive away, with a zoo and environmental park, Splashdown Quaywest water park, Victorian pier with plenty of entertainment and its selection of picturesque beaches, which form part of the incredible English Riviera. A wonderful base from which to explore the true highlights of South Devon.
