    “The position of the garden is not clearly advertised.”

    This meant I had to accompany my dog outside every time to make sure he didn’t go into the wrong garden. This is a very relevant consideration for a dog owner and had it been clearer in the details, I would not have chosen the cottage. ...

    This meant I had to accompany my dog outside every time to make sure he didn’t go into the wrong garden. This is a very relevant consideration for a dog owner and had it been clearer in the details, I would not have chosen the cottage. Furniture downstairs is tatty and extremely uncomfortable with stains on the easy chairs and cushions. Thankfully the bed was comfortable although I noticed that some of the pillows did not have pillow protectors on and were slightly stained. The double-glazed doors to the Juliet balcony had a big gap at the bottom letting in water (there was a lot of rain and gales throughout my stay). The windows in the front bedroom were difficult to open and very dirty outside thus spoiling the view. Aside from the above, the cottage is in a beautiful position but despite this, I consider it to be very dear for reasons stated above.

The property

Bow Cottage is a dog-friendly terraced cottage, stylishly furnished and equipped to a very good standard throughout, in a sought-after position in the heart of East Portlemouth village.

Boasting lovely views of the Salcombe estuary and situated just a ten-minute downhill walk from beautiful sandy beaches, and small foot passenger ferry that runs to/from Salcombe all year round, this is an ideal retreat for families looking to explore this stunning location. There is a cosy sitting room and stylishly finished kitchen with electric Aga, table seating 6, and French doors onto very small balcony with estuary views.

The property has two bedrooms on the first floor.

Double bedroom has a superb 6' bed and large picture window to take in views of the estuary.

The twin room has 3' single beds.

On the lower ground floor level (below kitchen) is a further open space/den (best suited for children, and adjacent to the bathroom) with a 3' single bed and further 3' mattress on a pull out truckle base.

This room doesn't have a window but is very airy, and is offered only as an alternative sleeping option (maximum occupancy is four plus a baby).

The family bathroom is also on the lower floor with roll top bath and power shower. To the rear of the cottage is a large garden with lawn area, shrubs and storage shed for beach/boat gear.

Barbeque and sun loungers available.

Parking is usually available outside the cottage and/or in the village nearby.

About the location

EAST PORTLEMOUTH

South Pool 3 miles; Kingsbridge 8; Salcombe 1 mile (by passenger ferry) 15.8 miles (by car).

East Portlemouth is a tranquil village nestled on the southern edge of the Kingsbridge Estuary in the South Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The small number of properties that make up this settlement are scattered on the hillside and around the cliff, with part of the village once being home to Coastguards employed during the nineteenth century to prevent any smuggling on this section of the South West Coast Path.
Nowadays the village offers a little cafe (open only on dry days) and a number of tiny peaceful beaches - Fisherman's Cove, Smalls Cove and Mill Bay - all of which have been awarded Safe Bathing status.
Further inland situated creekside, is the pretty village of South Pool with its delightful pub, the Millbrook Inn. A haven for food-lovers, this establishment serves a heady combination of fresh English ingredients with traditional Galic cooking.
Just across the estuary is the popular resort of Salcombe with its charming independent boutiques and plentiful selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, which can be reached easily by a five minute pedestrian ferry ride. Further down the coast are the historic town of Dartmouth with its Castle and the bustling city of Plymouth with its museums, aquarium, theatres, shopping and the Barbican.

One well behaved dog permitted.
