Studio Apartment in Kingsbridge, Devon, England - Peaceful retreat, 2 Mile Walk To The Local Beaches And Coastal Paths
This studio is located in a converted barn complex in a peaceful haven within the South Hams up a single track road. It is surrounded by the local beaches and the beautiful Salcombe estuary. A perfect retreat for those who want a peaceful escape with the idyllic coastal and countryside walking, or for just lazing on the local beaches. The studio also offers the local nature reserve of Slapton Ley with its vast lake and reed beds makes for beautiful walks and bird watching. The studio has its own privacy when sitting outside overlooking the rolling hills and you can often see deer in the hills opposite. Buzzards and rooks chasing each other off and lots of swallows darting in and out. The night sky is beautiful as there is no light pollution and all our guests remark on how beautiful the stars look and they are often found sitting on the decking with a glass of wine star gazing. Inside the Studio you enter downstairs into the small kitchen and towards the left of the kitchen is the toilet and shower room. Upstairs is one long living area with window over looking the rolling hills, where a table is set to enjoy your meals with a view. A chesterfield suite set infront of the TV with a coffee table housing a choice of dvds. Plenty of chests of drawers and cupboards. Electric heating and a big double bed.

About Shirley Marsh
We were born in the home counties and moved to Devon in 1977 the year we got married and moved to Dartmouth, our favourite place.Friendly owners, we are always at hand with helpful advice of local knowledge, restaurants, beaches and activities.
Shirley Marsh purchased this Apartment in 1987
Why Shirley Marsh chose South Pool
We fell in love with this place and area over 30 years ago. The property looks down the valley and over open countryside. It is surrounded by beaches, an estuary and rivers, and it is only 40 minutes to Dartmoor. Great coastal and country walks and nice country pubs serving local produce.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the location and is so peaceful and we love watching the wildlife from our garden.

Charming property in a fantastic location with beautiful scenic views of the Devon countryside
Myself & my partner had a wonderful time at the studio on Cousins farm,for us this was the perfect location to visit all the little villages & resorts close by,but also the perfect place to spend the day on the farm as it was very peaceful & tranquil,this was just what we both needed,also the owners Shirley & Terry made us feel very welcome it was like we had been going to the farm for years,hopefully we will be returning in the near future.
Thank you for enjoying your stay and we loved having you as guests, so warm and friendly
Loved also watching the night sky with you in the decking when there was a meteor shower
Shirley and Terry
Clean, everything you need, comfortable bed
If you go often to this part of the world you will know the insanity that is Salcombe,and the drabness of parts of Kingsbridge. What people come here for is the countryside and the cliff-top walks and and this is right in its heart. It is close to the best pub in the world, the Millbrook Inn, and the view from the front door alone is breathtaking.
Cousens Farm studio apartment
Shirley made us very welcome. Cream tea on arrival was a nice touch. We would recommend to other couples without hesitation.
We enjoyed having Richard and his wife lovely people and they left the studio clean and tidy - thank you for choosing us
Shirley and Terry amazing hosts. Sooo friendly and helpful. If we had known about the cottage at the same place, we would have booked this instead of the studio. Would have loved to be in this. The studio is ok to be used as a base, bit like staying in a bed sit. Was cosy and clean. Shirley had left us strawberries and a bottle of drink to welcome us . Facilities quite basic, although we did manage once we had got ourselves organised. We had taken a vegetable steamer and mini oven so was able to cook some very basic meals. Would have been better if there was something to put over the sink to create some working space in the kitchen area such as a large chopping board as there is no space at all to prepare food. We would definitely recommend staying in Shirley and Terri's accommodation.
Summer stay at Dunstone
Made to feel very welcome at this beautifully positioned Studio overlooking fields and trees, with a Devon cream tea awaiting on arrival. Very handy for coastal walks, beaches and local attractions. Studio had everything we needed. Thank you
We loved having you and enjoyed making your stay a successful one and talking to you about your interests in the local area and pointing you in the right direction.
We try hard to make stays successful and it's so nice to have feedback on the Studio and surrounding area
