    “Generally the house and facilities were excellent and as advertised.”

    There were however a couple of issues :-

    There were however a couple of issues :- 1. Both fridge doors in the upstairs kitchen need repair as they do not stay closed. 2.There is intermittently no hot water in the mornings and it is impossible to ignite the boiler. 3.We replaced the main bulb in the downstairs kitchen at a cost of £10. As there is no mobile coverage in the area it is difficult to call the caretaker.

    Many thanks for sharing your valuable feedback in respect of you stay at Estuary House. Your positive view that you found the house and facilities excellent and are particularly appreciated. We were sorry to hear the issues with the fridges and hot water. The Estuary House Welcome brochure does request that guests report any problems to the caretaker during your stay so that replacement or repair can be organised (the two integrated fridges have since been replaced) The brochure also contains guidance for the domestic hot water supply with additional notices in all the bathrooms. Unfortunately, as in any rural location, mobile phone signals can be variable depending on your provider. We hope that despite the issues raised you had an enjoyable time exploring the beautiful South Hams and do hope you chose to stay with us again soon. Owner relations

The property

Estuary House is a spacious and very well presented holiday home, just a few short steps from the tidal estuary in the pretty village of South Pool.

The two-storey detached house has been significantly refurbished in recent years to provide a high standard of accommodation for families, couples or those simply looking for a comfortable holiday retreat in a sought-after location with quick access to the Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary.

The unique split-level accommodation has five good-sized bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms and even two kitchens, whilst there is a large, private drive with space for a number of cars, boat and trailer.

Set in a conservation area, in an idyllic location in the very heart of the picturesque village of South Pool within a few yards of the tidal estuary, and just a short walk to the award-winning Millbrook Inn.

Boats, canoes or paddle boards can be launched nearby for delightful water trips to the towns of Salcombe and Kingsbridge.

A Canadian canoe is available, along with crab lines, buckets and nets for use on the village pontoon.

Nearby is the stunning Start Bay coastline, with miles of beautiful beaches and the National Trust coastal path - for spectacular walks through the villages of Torcross, Beesands and Hallsands, and on as far as the Start Point lighthouse - is just a short 10-15 minute drive away.

Wonderful views of the village, estuary and gardens from the large French windows. A flight of stone steps lead up to the entrance hallway at first floor level.

This light and sunny dual-aspect living space is very comfortably furnished with two large sofas, two hand woven chairs, coffee table, and wood burning stove.

There is a bluetooth speaker, television with Freesat, DVD player and Wi Fi.

Two sets of double French doors lead out onto the first floor balcony with superb views of the village, estuary and gardens.
