The Old Malt House is a gorgeous property overlooking the creek in the idyllic village of South Pool. Its position is a stones’ throw from the estuary where the pontoon provides access for small craft, with the award-winning Millbrook Pub just a brief walk along the country lane. The layout of this fabulous home is perfect for an enjoyable holiday. Stepping through the front door leads you into a large open plan living, kitchen and dining space which opens out onto a balcony where you can admire the view with a cool glass of wine. There are four bedrooms and plenty of space to relax together or enjoy some peace and quiet.

Outside in the garden is a private space for al fresco dining with views of the countryside and nothing but the sound of a trickling stream to enjoy the warmer days, while indoors the log burner is perfect for hunkering down after a long winter walk. The warm and relaxing atmosphere makes this property popular for repeat visits and ideal for special occasions - a superb house for your South Devon Holiday.

The village of South Pool sits on an inlet of the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary, allowing water access for boating and watersports enthusiasts. The Millbrook Inn sits in the heart of the village, famed for its delicious food, drinks and cosy atmosphere. There are a number of scenic walks around the village and the beautiful sandy beaches at East Portlemouth and Millbay are just three miles away, along with the passenger ferry to the popular town of Salcombe.

Within four miles there are a selection of beaches at Beesands and Torcross, and both these villages have good local pubs and popular eateries. A fifteen-minute drive will take you to the market town of Kingsbridge, with shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and a cinema. Dartmouth is around thirty minutes away with shops and restaurants along with a variety of historic sites such as the castle and the Royal Naval College. Woodlands leisure park is great for a family day out, and those keen on walking can explore the South West Coast Path nearby and Dartmoor a forty-minute drive away. With lots to explore a week may not be long enough.
