  • “My daughter and I have stayed in many holidays cottages between us, and this is by far the best we have ever had.”

    Everything was so clean, and it was fully-equipped with everything anyone could need.

    Everything was so clean, and it was fully-equipped with everything anyone could need. We needed to turn on the heating on day 2 but it was registering “call for engineer”. We rang your office and by the time we returned after an afternoon out it had been fixed. Your whole service was second to none - thank you for making our short break so effortless

The property

Tucked away from the main road near the centre of Kingsbridge, is this wonderful recently renovated single-storey property, Little Starboard.

This all-ground-floor accommodation is ideal for one or two couples or a small family wanting to enjoy the best of Devon's coast and countryside, located within touching distance of the South Devon AONB and the coast.

Enter Little Starboard and be greeted by an open-plan living room, a bright and airy space with white painted walls offering a well-equipped kitchen where you can prepare delicious home-cooked meals to be enjoyed together at the dining table, before you head over to the plush corner sofa and spend your evening relaxing in front of the Smart TV and making plans for the remainder of your stay.

There are two stylish, all-white bedrooms with ample storage and hanging space for you to choose from; a super-king-size bed, which can be made into twins upon request and a further double bedroom, to accommodate a variety of groups, served by the immaculate family bathroom with a choice of a separate shower or a bath to prepare for each day.

Outside is the enclosed rear garden with a patio and outdoor furniture, ideal for enjoying an alfresco meal.

The bustling centre of Kingsbridge is a short walk away, with a good selection of shops, eateries and an award-winning pub, as well as a museum and two art galleries.

Enjoy a scenic walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off the main Fore Street or visit the Shambles, an Elizabethan market arcade.

Positioned on the edge of the South Devon AONB, within the South Hams area, Kingsbridge rests at the head of a marine estuary, and you can enjoy seeing an abundance of wildlife with a boat trip to Salcombe, on the steeper side of the estuary.

It is a popular resort with tourists and sailing enthusiasts, known for its incredible scenery and offering a host of visitor attractions, including a maritime museum, the Overbeck's, a 20th century museum and garden, castle ruins of Fort Charles, overlooking the estuary, and a choice of two stunning sandy beaches.

From here, you can access lovely walking trails and panoramic views available from the National Trust's Snapes Point, while just across the estuary is the small town of East Portlemouth, with a stunning sandy beach and positioned on a hill, with far-reaching views across Dartmoor.

From Salcombe, you can access the South West Coast Path in both directions, taking in the incredible coastal views along the way, with a venture east encompassing the incredible English Riviera.

The seaside town of Paignton forms part of this, and 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.

Little Starboard is a charming base from which to explore the South Devon coast and countryside.
