Kingsbridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A cosy cottage with a lovely, roaring wood-burning stove! FREE UNLIMITED WIFI

The Linney is a little gem of a cottage with every modern convenience. From the recently refurbished galley kitchen with its microwave, dishwasher, washer/drier, fan oven and ceramic hob to its gleaming bathroom with a full-sized bath and powerful shower over, to its comfortable lounge/dining room complete with log-burning stove and surround sound TV entertainment centre, the Linney offers comfortable, centrally-heated accommodation for four people (2 double bedrooms) all on ground floor level, excellent for those who find stairs difficult. With its own dedicated parking, and plenty of off-street parking nearby, the Linney can accommodate your transport needs. However, as it is also on a direct hourly bus service which serves Plymouth and Dartmouth, and near other local rural buses, there is even no need for a car!

Situated in the small village of West Charleton, less than two miles from the pretty town of Kingsbridge, with its pubs, shops, restaurants and supermarkets, the Linney is well-placed for enjoying the nearby South Hams' beaches of Torcross and Beesands, and the towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth.

Apart from its proximity to the South Devon Coast Path, there is a great selection of footpath walking straight from the door with close access to the peaceful Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary and some equally delightful inland footpaths. A paradise for bird-spotters (there is a nearby village hide available for guests to use), the area is renowned for its flora and fauna.

One of our guests said:

"The Linney was a great base for the area, and the property was clean, comfortable and inside had everything you would need. All mod cons and a lovely new shower. The owner was very efficient in emailing info before and after our stay."

Another said:

"Plenty of amenities - more than i expected in the kitchen, shower and bathroom - lovely and if i could have fit it in the car would have brought the bed home with me as it was extremely comfortable. Location also great just 10 minutes one way a beautiful stretch of beach (at Torcross) and nature reserve (at Slapton) and 5 minutes the other way to Kingsbridge with its lovely harbour. Everything was very close - Dartmouth also not too far and we found lots of very pretty bays within close proximity."

There is a no pets policy. A full linen and bed making service is available but there is a small extra charge for this. Please ask for details from the owner. NEW FOR 2016 FREE UNLIMITED WIFI

About The owner

A former teacher and educational manager for many years in a large Devon comprehensive school, in the final years of my career I decided to make a real leap of faith and work for the Royal Navy, training young Naval officers at the historic Britannia Royal College in nearby Dartmouth.

The owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why The owner chose South Hams

As it was too far to commute daily from my home town in Tavistock, Devon I purchased the Linney and my daily commute was the road from Charleton via Torcross to Dartmouth. Do please follow my route if you stay at The Linney, as the views are awesome... even better on the double decker bus which passes hourly through the village of Charleton on most days!

What makes this cottage unique

A cosy, compact place to stay, which will enable you to enjoy some village life, some excellent neighbours, and above all the rich delights of all the South Hams has to offer.....

A great, well appointed and clean home base for the beautiful South Hams

  • 4 of 5

All on one level, The Linney offers two comfortable double bedrooms, a well appointed, very clean bathroom, a nice well equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge/diner with everything you could ever need on holiday, including decent WiFi, DVD and TV with surround sound and plenty of DVD's, CD's and books if you have a dull weather day. The location is excellent, ideal for exploring the local beaches of Salcombe, of which there are many. The Owner, Graham has taken great care to provide pretty much everything you need for a stay, whether it's for a few days or a few weeks and was very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely week there and could easily have stayed longer. There's plenty to do in the surrounding area. I'd highly recommend The Linney to friends or family, the only slight drawback was the lack of an outside area to sit, which was a shame as we had such lovely weather during our stay and it would have been nice to sit out in the evening. That said, the local pubs including the Ashburton Arms (a few doors down the road - but very quiet) and the Seven Stars in Kingsbridge both served exceptional food and were very welcoming. We had one 'bad' meal out during our stay which was at the The Creeks End Inn in Kingsbridge, where we found the food and service really poor. Food was mainly frozen, and really stood out from the nice fresh meals we'd had at the other two local pubs.

The local beaches in Salcombe were fantastic, perfect for children with soft sand, rock pools and lovely shallow, clean (and warm) sea too! The best was North Sands, Salcombe, closely followed by Hope Cove, then South Sands.

Be warned - Blackpool Sands looks like a beautiful beach but is NOT a sandy beach, it's ALL gravel which really hurts your feet! Take shoes with you - not flip flops! The sea also drops off into a deep shelf so isn't the best for small kids, even my 12 year old was scared of the waves as the gravel shore meant it was easy to slip in deeper than you were comfortable with or fall over standing on the steep edge.

All in all we had a wonderful week and we're very likely to return to the Linney again, I can't recommend it highly enough. It was a great, good value place to stay with a nice, helpful owner and good neighbours. My small family of three loved it - we think you will too!

Only missed 5 stars due to the lack of outside seating!

Sweet little cottage with a personal touch

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was perfectly sized for 3 of us in a great location close to lots of great towns & beaches. Beds comfy & great shower/bath. I felt as though I was staying at a friends place, Graham left out some goodies in the kitchen & even a great selection of DVDs! Which I thought was a nice little personal touch .

The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is down to being situated on the busy road but we knew that when we booked. It could get a bit noisy during the day but died down in the late afternoon.

Thanks Graham for a great stay we will be back : )

Owner's Response: Thanks Andy for the great review and glad you like the Linney. What a long way from Manchester! Pleased you and yours liked the selection of music and dvds for the surround sound system! Also the Ashburton Arms not bad for food and just a short village stroll away! Looking forward to your next visit but I guess I will have to think hard about the surprise goodies and find some new ones! Otherwise they won't be a surprise! Cheers Graham

beautiful, V clean in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

the Property was perfect, stunningly clean and everything you could ever need was all available. in a stunning location with lots of walks all near by. situated roughly about 20 minutes in any direction to get to lots of lovely beach towns. the beds were the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in. My partner and myself would both recommend to anyone who is thinking of a holiday in this area to stay at the linney you would not be disappointed. Such a happy holiday and this cottage just made our stay even more perfect.

Nettes Ambiente, günstige Lage.

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben den Aufenthalt in "The Linney" sehr genossen. Mit den beiden Schlafräumen bietet es ausreichend Platz für Familien. Die kleine Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet und nur fünf Autominuten entfernt liegt Kingsbridge mit zwei Einkaufscentern.

Gut zu erreichen ist das Dartmoor in dem wir einige Wanderungen machten, z.B. starteten wir ein größere Tour vom Ivybridge Medical Center (gute Wahrscheinlichkeit die Dartmoor Ponys zu sehen), auch die Lydford-Klamm ist sehenwert.

In Cornwall ist besonders Lanhydrock House zu empfehlen, 50 Zimmer mit original Einrichtung und tollem Garten. Empfehlen würden wir jedem St. Michaels Mount, zwar über 2 Stunden Autofahrt aber jede Minute wert. Wer gerne Gärten anschaut sollte Coleton Fishacre und Overbecks House nicht verpassen, beide Einrichtungen haben wundervolle Gärten mit Blick aufs Meer und sind nur wenige Kilometer von Kingsbridge entfernt.

Ein Natural Trust Touring Pass, oder eine Mitgliedschaft ist dringend zu empfehlen, bereits nach drei besuchten Einrichtungen spart man ordentlich Geld, oft auch Parkgebühren.

Einen Strand ohne Service aber dafür ursprünglich zwischen den Klippen kann man sehr empfehlen, nur wenige hundert Meter vom Start Point (Leuchtturm) Parkplatz entfernt an einer der schönsten Küstenabschnitte (den Schildern ab Parkplatz folgen). Vom Leuchtturm aus hat man außerdem den besten Ausblick auf den Sonnenaufgang (über dem Meer). Den besten Blick auf den Sonnenuntergang hat man von den Klippen oberhalb von Hope Cove.

The South West conjures up sunny vistas of glorious beaches, green rolling hills, sparkling seascapes and dramatic emerald estuaries. All these and more are waiting for you in the area of South Devon known as the South Hams. Richly agricultural and unspoilt, this area has its own particularly mild and sunny microclimate.

West Charleton is situated less than two miles outside Kingsbridge, an attractive South Hams market town, with an array of shops and supermarkets, and of cafes and pubs for eating. The Linney is on the coastal road to Torcross and historic Dartmouth. It is also on a direct hourly bus route between Dartmouth and Plymouth on weekdays and Saturdays. The coastal villages of Torcross and Beesands are also just a short drive away and here you can access the magnificent South Devon Coast Path, from which you can access some glorious unspoilt and secluded beaches. The upmarket delights of Gara Rock and Salcombe are within easy reach too. The locality is rich in bird and wildlife, all types of flora and fauna, and there is even a local village bird hive which guests may use overlooking the Kingsbridge estuary. With plenty of idyllic local walks available from the front door, there is hardly any need to explore any further!
