Bridge Park Cottage is conveniently located close to Kingsbridge in South Devon, at the head of the Salcombe estuary and is a spacious and comfortable family house nestled in a valley that leads down to Bowcombe creek. This pretty stretch of tree lined water runs under Bowcombe bridge and into the beautiful Kingsbridge and Salcombe estuary. This sheltered tidal waterway is a haven for wildlife and a Mecca for boating enthusiasts with every type of watersport available. The cottage comes with a tidal mooring suitable for boats up to 4 metres, so guests can bring their own boats or kayaks and drift down to the vibrant town of Salcombe with its golden beaches or head a short way upstream to the quayside at Kingsbridge where you can tie up alongside the Crabshell Inn for a delicious meal and some liquid refreshment. The property has a large sunny lounge, a spacious farmhouse style kitchen/diner and four comfortable bedrooms - two en-suite, as well as a sheltered garden and plenty of parking. Apart from the estuary and the family beaches that abound in this area there are some lovely coastal and country walks and a short drive brings you into the bustling market town of Kingsbridge with all the amenities required for a family holiday including a cinema and sport centre with swimming pool. Further afield are the surfing beaches of Bantham and Bigbury, the historic naval port of Dartmouth, Dartmoor National Park and the Celtic county of Cornwall. So, not too much time for relaxing then?
