  • “The house is great - what a fantastic location.”

    We were with our 18mts old boy so being this side of the estuary was excellent, made hitting the beautiful beaches really easy. Lovely walks to the gara rock hotel. Walked to the Millbrook in South Pool which is such a lovely pub! The owners ensured we had a travel for, high chair, sun loungers and a BBQ. The whole stay was really easy. One of the ensuite toilets was not working - fixed within 48hrs. ...

    We were with our 18mts old boy so being this side of the estuary was excellent, made hitting the beautiful beaches really easy. Lovely walks to the gara rock hotel. Walked to the Millbrook in South Pool which is such a lovely pub! The owners ensured we had a travel for, high chair, sun loungers and a BBQ. The whole stay was really easy. One of the ensuite toilets was not working - fixed within 48hrs. The location makes this house - wonderful of you have young children who are more bothered about the beach and not hitting the pubs in the evening (the need to cross the estuary via ferry makes that trickier depending on how late you want to stay out).

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.

Please note that there is a drop from the top of the terrace wall to the beach below of approx.15' at low tide and the estuary at high tide - young children must therefore be supervised at all times.

Two moorings available - running mooring for 13' boat/dinghy (max.) and swinging mooring for 18' boat /dinghy (max.)

One well behaved dog permitted.

All bed linen, towels and a limited number of beach towels are provided but you will need to bring additional beach towels and tea towels.

Telephone available.
