The property

Thornberry, a fabulous dormer bungalow is nestled amongst rolling Devon hills, resting near the hustle and bustle of Salcombe.

Enjoying stunning, rural views, whilst well-positioned near the town’s amenities, beach and attractions, Thornberry offers a spacious and fully-equipped base for a family of eight, looking to enjoy a memorable getaway to the coast.

Be welcomed by a private driveway, where you can park up, unload your belongings, and take in the breath-taking vistas surrounding your home.

Head indoors and relax in the sitting room, complete with plenty of plush seating and a TV with Freeview, a cupboard full of books and games to entertain your group - the perfect place to curl up with a good book.

The kitchen/diner is well-equipped including a Smart TV and all the essentials for a self-catered stay, with a neighbouring utility and shower room for convenience; store away your wetsuits and sandy clothes, before taking advantage of the rear garden, a haven for alfresco mealtimes in the sunshine and late-night tipples.

Thornberry offers four homely bedrooms, the first of which is a king-size, complete with Smart TV for those lazy mornings.

A ground-floor king-size and twin bedroom are also on offer, as well as a further twin room on the first floor; all are serviced by a bathroom and a cloakroom for ease.

A handy bus stop is close by with regular services to Kingsbridge and surrounding villages.

Travel into the town to experience its charm and beautiful beachfront, an abundance of boutique shops, and some of the freshest seafood in the UK.

A handy convenience store, selling the essential items you will need for your stay is a short walk away.

Should you wish to take a swim, Salcombe's open-air heated swimming pool is very close by - please check local information for opening times and prices. Venture to Kingsbridge, a market town with a fantastic range of independent shops and traditional pubs, where you can also tour the Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum or stroll alongside the creek, resting within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Journey to Dartmouth, where you can explore the historical attractions and admire the stunning river views, or visit Plymouth for an array of cultural activities, from the National Marine Aquarium to the Plymouth Arts Centre.

Whatever you decide, a holiday at Thornberry promises to be one to remember.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
