Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved the cottage its really nice.

We liked the garden.

You can feed the birds.

The kids room is very small.

Lovely cottage, welcome basket was lovely after a long drive! Quiet, relaxing and with everything you need for a short break, a great base for us to visit granddad who lives close by. We hope to return.

Jen and Iain purchased the cottage in 2008 as a peaceful and tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of London life. They both grew up in Devon and are very fond of the South Hams. Whilst Iain spent his childhood in Mid Devon, hiking on Dartmoor and becoming well acquainted with local watering holes, Jen spent many a weekend in her teenage years and early twenties surfing on the coast with friends and Charlie, the chocolate Lab. However, with careers in law and business management respectively, they do not have the time to stay at Pearl River Cottage as often as they would like, which is why they make every effort to welcome you in the hope that you derive the same amount of pleasure from your stay as they do.

Pearl River Cottage is a very cosy cottage. It originally belonged to the church in the village before becoming a privately owned property. It is located in a quiet setting yet is only minutes into Kingsbridge with access to all the local amenities, as well as a short drive to the South West coast and coastal path, which links to all the beaches in the surrounding area.

This area has many fond memories for the owners and given its location and affordability makes it an ideal holiday for couples and families or simply for those who just wants to get away from it all.

GOOD LOCATION FOR EXPLORING THE SOUTH HAMS AREA

  • 3 of 5
Our initial impression was slightly disappointing because we had booked on the strength of the photos on the website and the positive reviews, however the facilities in the cottage were not quite what we had expected, so unfortunately would not return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.

We are sorry to hear that the facilities did not meet your expectations. I understand from the housekeeper that you were expecting a higher standard based on the positive reviews and the photos. The reviews are based on the opinions of our guests and not on the official 'star' rating of the cottage, and the photographs were taken in March 2013.

I will contact you by email to see if there is anything specific we can improve on.

COSY COTTAGE IN A FANTASTIC LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we have stayed at Pearl River Cottage and once again we had a fantastic time. The cottage itself feels like a home from home. The welcome pack of bread, cake, eggs and milk is a lovely touch and perfect for when you've arrived after a long drive!

The location is fantastic and is an easy walk from town and all local attractions are only a short drive away. We would recommend the Sharp Tor and Bolt Head walk for stunning views and Becky Falls is a nice day out.

We would recommend the cottage to others and hope to stay again in the future.

PEARL RIVER COTTAGE, NR KINGSBRIDGE, DEVON

  • 5 of 5
Of all the hol. cottages we have rented Pearl River Cottage is by far the best - a gem.
The location is excellent, there are so many places to visit within the vicinity.
It is set in a quiet backwater yet only 20 mins pleasant walk into K/bridge with the dog for supplies - or 4 mins in the car.
The cottage is spotlessly clean, stylishly furnished & fully equipped. The extras, so generously included-bread,milk,eggs,butter,wine etc.-
a lovely much appreciated gesture.
There is a nice garden with a BBQ to enjoy & on chilly nights the huge open fire(logs supplied) is a real joy.
We,ve been every year since Jenna began letting & hope to continue
visiting - we happily recommend to all our friends.

COSY COTTAGE IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
Pearl River Cottage was very 'cosy' (& small) but was well presented and had everything you needed for a short break in the South Hams. Clearly the owners have an eye for detail making good use being made of the available space.
The second bedroom uses a bunk-bed so suits smaller children. Parking is limited outside the property but there is a generous village hall car park at the top of the hill, so other than loading/unloading it's not really a problem.
Being on the outskirts of Kingsbridge it is well located for exploring the area - Kingsbridge is a great town - parking available at the bottom of the town adjacent to the estuary. There's a Morrison's and Tesco supermarket on the way into town so no problem getting supplies.
Salcombe is very close -an attractive little town - Burgh Island/Bigbury-on-Sea is worth a visit too - very good beach and when the sea is out you can walk across to the Island. A little further afield is Plymouth - lots of history (Mayflower museum, Plymouth Hoe), great coffee shops (would particularly recommend the Flower Café - great food/cakes to die for). There is a large in door mall shopping centre which is much like any other city. We parked at the Barbican which is very close to the harbour front and quite reasonable. Follow signs for Barbican/Aquarium. The Plymouth Gin distillery is well worth a visit - oldest in the country - great bar/restaurant.
Eating out - sampled Sloop Inn, Bantham - food was very good. Nice pub/restaurant/ not expensive. The Oyster Shack, St Ann's Chapel (on the way to Bigbury) was busy and great seafood (more expensive but not too bad). The Globe, Frogmore - again good pub/restaurant.
All in all, it's a great area, with lots to see and do, great beaches, we'll definitely be back!
