    “We enjoyed our stay A Super quirky property, lots of outdoor space, well equipped, Netflix /Disney.”

    Beds and sofa were not the comfiest Fantastic location just off the main high street and Kingsbridge is a great base for exploring the region Luckily, no parking wasn’t too much of an issue as we managed to get a space near to the property to unload/load however I imagine if the weather had been better this could have caused a problem £7 for 24 hours nearby.

    Hi there, thank you for your feedback. So happy you loved our little home! West Island is an ongoing project and we are constantly improving things. Just for future reference the car park at the rear of the property at Lower Union Road is £2 for 24hrs. Love Andrew and Andrea Property Owner

The property

This inviting cottage is located in the centre of Kingsbridge, Devon's bustling town, close off Fore Street.

West Island invites families for a wonderful stay in Devon, with a host of shops, pubs, and restaurants accessible in a short stroll.

It is beautifully presented with a gravelled, lawned and decked garden area plus a tasteful interior.

With bi-fold doors opening to the decking, a central dining table for mealtimes, a corner sofa for lounging, and a wall-mounted Smart TV for watching your favourite shows, the open-plan living area is the social focus of the house.

The kitchen has everything you need for a week away, including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, Smeg fridge/freezer, Nespresso coffee maker, dishwasher and even a washing machine, so you can keep on top of your laundry.

The outdoor area is a true highlight, with raised balconies with chairs that are ideal for sipping morning coffee and side and back gardens with furniture sets for al fresco dining.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed, while the second bedroom is a triple bunk with a 4' double bed and a single above.

As the evening draws to a close, relax with a soak in the tub or take a quick rinse under the rainfall shower before selecting between two refreshing bedrooms.

There is a Tesco supermarket nearby where you can fill up on the week's necessities, and within the high street there are a plethora of cafés, delis, coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs.

Visit the Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum to brush up on local history, stroll to the Quay for stunning vistas, or take a tour of the Salcombe Brewery to taste some of the best beers in Devon.

There are ferries that run to Salcombe during the summer, or you can unwind on the sandy beaches at South Milton and Bantham or try your hand at a variety of water sports such as kayaking, paddleboarding, and powerboating.

There are many independent producers, high-street brands, and boutique stores in the area; why not try the renowned Salcombe Gin and Salcombe Dairy Ice Cream?

Dartmouth is 13 miles away to Dartmouth and is home to the 14th-century Dartmouth Castle and Dartmouth Museum, offering an insight into the history of the town.

About the location

KINGSBRIDGE

Salcombe 5 miles; Bantham 5 miles; Dartmouth 12 miles; Totnes 13 miles; Plymouth 20 miles.

The busy little town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of a marine estuary in the attractive South Hams area of South Devon. Kingsbridge is home to a range of lovely independent shops and coffee shops, as well as a 3-screen cinema and an award-winning pub. During the summer season there are estuary excursions by ferry to Salcombe which lies on the banks of the Kingsbridge Estuary, making it one of the prettiest towns in South Devon. Salcombe is famous for its outstanding coastal views, rolling countryside, and is a watersports paradise for kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding and powerboating. It is packed with boutique shops, high street brands and independent producers, restaurants serving freshly caught seafood, and Salcombe Gin and Ice cream! Kingsbridge is perfectly located as a base to enjoy the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast. Visitors can take a walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles in Totnes, an Elizabethan market arcade. Around the South Hams area there are picturesque ports, such as Dartmouth and Salcombe, together with sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands near Stoke Fleming and the two sandy beaches at Thurlestone. There are a host of small attractive villages in South Hams offering interesting pubs, local farm produce shops and pretty rows of cottages, plus further afield the waterfront city of Plymouth is a vibrant centre, housing the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars. Kingsbridge can be easily reached by train to Totnes and then a local bus service which will take you to Kingsbridge town centre.
