About James Shenton

Married with 3 children children living in Kent. We have been running Kingfisher Cottage a highly successful holiday home business since buying it in May 2007. During this time the cottage has been extensively refurbished and we also enjoy our holidays at Kingfisher Cottage.

James Shenton purchased this cottage in 2007

Why James Shenton chose Kingsbridge

We bought Kingfisher Cottage after visiting the South Hams area many times as we realised that it was the ideal place to have a holiday home with excellent beaches, pubs and estuary towns (Kingsbridge, Dartmouth, Salcombe) combined with a host of activities and sports for all ages. The area also offers a fine range of local produce to cook in or sample in the local pubs. We specifically bought Kingfisher Cottage as it is a spacious character barn conversion which is located in a beautiful location next to a spring fed duck pond. The cottage is close to all the attractions and award winning beaches, but is in a peaceful location and has plenty of parking.

What makes this cottage unique

Kingfisher Cottage is a spacious barn Conversion which is set in a Area of Natural Beauty and is ideally situated in the South Hams centrally between Dartmouth and Salcombe and close to Kingsbridge. The cottage offers luxury accommodation and benefits from Free WI-FI / Broadband, incoming phone line, 32 Inch Sony LCD TV, BlueRay Player with DVD Library, and Sony iPod / iPhone HIFI. Kingfisher Cottage also has its own great tasting filtered spring water supply so no need for bottled water. The rental prices also include linen, towels, electricity, heating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at Kingfisher Cottage it was very well furnished and very well equipped to make you feel at home, we loved the wood burner.

The cottage is set in very beautiful surroundings with great access to some very beautiful beaches and some well known places to visit.

The weather was a real bonus too, some of us got burned, we would love to visit again a place I would recommend to any one who looks for a relaxing holiday.

Kingfisher for familes

  • 5 of 5
Lovely, homely and so well equipped. We have stayed in good accomodation before but this was excellent. All the bedrooms were very spacious, extremely comfortable and well furnished. We have 2 daughters, 4 years and 12 weeks old, and would recommend the barn to any other family. We had a great time exploring the South Hams area from this perfect location.

Perfect peace in a luxurious cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our family (2 adults and 3 children aged 10, 7 and 6) stayed in Kingfisher Cottage for a week at Easter 2011. I can't recommend the cottage highly enough. It's beautifully furnished and decorated, with large, light and airy rooms, the beds are incredibly comfortable with super soft cotton sheets, the bathrooms are spotless, the kitchen is fantastically well stocked and the owners have thought of everything to make the cottage luxurious, yet cosy. There is a very large balcony / terrace outside the front door where you can have your morning coffee in the sunshine while gazing at the beautiful shared gardens and pond. The cottage is hidden away from the road so there is no traffic noise whatsoever, but I'd recommend a sat-nav to both find the cottage and explore the local countryside. The lanes are very narrow and winding and came as a bit of a surprise to a city-girl like me! We had some wonderful days out; I recommend Dartmouth for ferry trips, boat hire, steam train, crabbing and ice-cream, Dittisham for a fab pub and cafe - and more crabbing!, East Portlemouth and East Prawle for beaches and Salcombe is pretty. We had some good green lane walks, esp at East Prawle. We also visited Agatha Christie's house at Greenway nr Dartmouth and, further afield, went to the National Park and Castle Drogo. There is a very well stocked and upmarket farm shop, wood-fired pizza cafe and plant shop in Stokely Barton which is well worth a visit and we used the local Easy Market (about 5 mins drive) for everyday shopping. Lovely local pubs, beautiful countryside and lots to see and do - a perfect British holiday! We hope to return next year.

Fantastic cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5
Just had a great week staying at Kingfisher Cottage. The accommodation is superb with lots of space for everybody. Bedrooms are very comfortable and bathrooms fitted to very high standard. Great sized lounge & kitchen/diner. Excellent base for exploring this part of Devon. Very easy to get to local beaches & places of interest by car. Great pubs not too far away. Cottage is one of a few converted barns rented as holiday lets situated around a central duck pond with communal grounds. Cottage has own large secure terrace - great for children and dogs! Would highly recommend.

Our joint favourite holiday cottage in 15 years!

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a superb relaxing week in the beautiful South Hams area of South Devon based in Kingfisher Cottage.
Kingfisher Cottage was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed just to turn up and chill out!
Our Black Lab Jake loved walking up the drive to the country lane, and to snooze after a day of exploring the coast and countryside in front of the cozy log burner! In every other property we've stayed in we had to buy our own logs - the generous supply included in the rental was a great bonus.
Everything was so easy, from booking through to following directions to the property. The owner James has been very helpful and efficient with everything.
We loved the peace and tranquility of Kingfisher Cottage, yet found it so accessible for local amenities - Kingsbridge supermarkets only 4 miles drive away, and local beaches a short drive away.
WiFi internet access allowed us to keep in touch with our business which was a real added bonus for us.
We will not hesitate about booking another holiday here and would highly recommend Kingfisher Cottage.

Great cottage, great location.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Kingfisher Cottage for a long weekend in January 2011. The Cottage is in a lovely rural location and was really well equipped and very comfortable. It was also perfect for the kids.

There's lots of great areas of coastline to visit in the area, such as around East Prawle and Hope Cove and lots of good pubs to find amongst the villages. Totnes is also worth a visit to explore some interesting shops and cafes.

You'll definitely need your own transport (you’ll need to drive to any amenities) and be prepared for navigating small country lanes, but it's well worth it for the location and standard of accommodation.

Family Holiday at Kingfisher Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Kingfisher Cottage is idyllic, hidden away, secluded and peaceful. The location is 10 minutes from the coast and some of the clearest sea water that the UK has to offer. The cottage itself is very well appointed and has everything you would have at home. There is even a duck filled pond, tree house and rope swing out the front. It is remotely nestled i a little valley with a few other cottages, but everyone was very friendly and happy to mingle.
It was a lovely family staycation. Our four kids range from 17 to 6, and they all loved it. Also one of our children has a mental disability and we felt that the location and environment was very sae for him.
