Estuary House is a spacious and very well presented holiday home, just a few short steps from the tidal estuary in the pretty village of South Pool. The two-storey detached house has been significantly refurbished in recent years to provide a high standard of accommodation for families, couples or those simply looking for a comfortable holiday retreat in a sought-after location with quick access to the Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary. The unique split-level accommodation has five good-sized bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms and even two kitchens, whilst there is a large, private drive with space for a number of cars, boat and trailer.

N.B. Special 'Reduced Occupancy' rates available for smaller parties at Estuary House (excluding High Season periods) - please call (01548) 843773 for further information.
