View over Kingsbridge Estuary

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Kingsbridge is a picturesque estuary town set in the South Hams region of South Devon. The town is popular for family beach holidays, walking breaks or just a relaxing weekend away sampling some delicious Devon produce. There is an attractive harbour, nearby sandy beaches ideal for sunbathing or surfing and an excellent twice monthly Farmers Market.

Enjoy a stay in a beautiful thatched holiday cottage close to all the attractions in Kingsbridge or a welcoming pub with comfortable rooms and delicious food served. There is also a good choice of B&Bs, holiday flats and apartments which often have specific facilities for families and may also take pets by arrangement.

Ferry and boat trips

The 'Rivermaid' ferry service or one of a choice of cruises are the ideal way of exploring the Kingsbridge and Salcombe areas. Enjoy a thirty five minute trip along the estuary which takes in lovely waterfront houses, Saltstone Island, historic limekilns and plenty of wildlife. Evening creek cruises can also be experienced and there are also longer cruises which take in more of the surrounding area including Fort Charles, Starehole Bay and Prawle Point.

Kingsbridge 'Walkers are Welcome' Town

A 'Walkers are Welcome' town, Kingsbridge was the first Devon town to be awarded the status. A fine choice of scenic hikes and estuary walks branch out from the town centre and miles of estuary and creek walks sit right alongside Kingsbridge and Dartmoor National Park is just to the north of the town. At low tide, visitors can walk across nearby Bigbury Beach over to Burgh Island which was the setting for Agatha Christie's novel, 'Evil under the Sun'. Alternatively, at high tide take the sea tractor across - a trip particularly popular with families.

This area of Bigbury Beach is also ideal for outdoor activities with surfing lessons and equipment hire available.

Kingsbridge is a popular South Hams tourist centre featuring an array of fine shops, cafes, restaurants and old inns, the town holds an annual Music Festival and Fair Week in June. You can also visit the nearby Aune Valley farm shop from locally sourced meat or Fast Rabbit Farm and Garden for local plants and flowers.
