The property

A mile from the centre of Kingsbridge and its waterfront, yet absolutely in country, two cottages cleverly converted from former barns on a working farm, sharing exclusive use of an indoor heated swimming pool (29' x 11' x 4' deep, open 7am to 8pm) and games room (table tennis, pool table).

You are welcome to fish (at half price) in three well-stocked coarse fishing lakes (tench, roach, carp).

The cottages are quietly tucked behind 'The Hen House', a fitness, health and beauty centre in a converted barn; you are welcome to book in advance a massage or beauty therapy or fitness class (yoga, pilates) and use the excellent gym at reduced rates.

Payphone on site.

Spring water.

These are wonderfully relaxing retreats after a day exploring the beautiful South Hams Mixit Cottage is at the far end of the farmyard beyond the owners' farmhouse and next door (well insulated) to the swimming pool and games room.

Own small sitting-out area (table/chairs, barbecue).

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with beams to apex, stripped floor (rugs), woodburner and Smart TV.

Stairs down to a double bedroom (6' bed or twin) with French windows (balustrade) and bathroom (suite with separate shower).

No children, except pre-crawling babies.

Kingsbridge: small market town (excellent shops, good pubs, leisure centre with indoor pool) and waterfront (sailing, paddleboarding, motor boats) at the head of the many-creeked Kingsbridge estuary (boat trips) leading to the sea at Salcombe.

Bantham beach, 4 miles.

Tremendous variety of beautiful places and things to see/do within 5 or 6 miles.

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.

Note: The swimming pool is open from 7am to 8pm. Note: This property does not accept children, except babes in arms.
