With its living room on the first floor to take advantage of creek and river views, and a pretty garden from which to watch yachts dance on the tidal waters , this modern house stands in a pretty riverside village flanked by National Trust woodland. At the local inn, tasty crab sandwiches and local beer can be enjoyed. Rowing boats can be hired to explore the river banks. Sandy beach at Mothecombe (4 miles). Good coastal walking.
