About Caroline Montague
We are an outgoing and friendly couple who really enjoy letting our lodge to different people. Our aim is to make our guests happy and ensure that they have a relaxing and memorable holiday.
Caroline Montague purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Caroline Montague chose Kingsbridge
It is in an unbeatable location: Peaceful and quiet, near pretty thatched villages and 10 minutes drive from the picturesque market town of Kingsbridge. It overlooks Bantham and Bigbury sandy beaches, with a direct view of Burgh Island. Sometimes you can see what is reputed to be the world's only working sea tractor transporting people from Bigbury to the island. The art deco hotel on Burgh Island is often featured on travel programmes. Noel Coward and Agatha Christie have both stayed at the hotel, and one of Christie's Hercule Poirot movies was filmed there. The A38 and railway station are only 30 minutes drive away. Dartmoor is half an hour's drive. Beautiful Salcombe takes 20 minutes in the car and Dartmouth only 40 minutes. Plymouth city is 45 minutes away. What more can you ask for?

Beautiful location, peace and quiet day and night and nice to hear the owls and pheasants in the evening. Great view of the beach (5 min drive) and the countryside which looked amazing with the morning mist in between the valleys. Lodge was great, clean and nice and warm on a winter evening. Decking area outside would be the perfect spot in the summer to sit out and enjoy the views. The owner was very friendly and made sure we knew where everything was when we arrived.
Thank you for a lovely peaceful weekend!
Fantastic location and lovely views
We really had a lovely stay over the New Year. Walking distance from the local pub. Reasonably close to the pier at Paignton which was also a treat. Fantastic views over to Burgh Island, made even better by the view of the fireworks on New Years Eve.
A real little hidden treasure. Fantastic view. Warm and cosy, Thank you

Charming and quit retreat. Good position to start from to go NESW to various points of interest.
The cabin is lovely and the view is stunning. Caroline was the perfect host.
What a fabulous find!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped haven. The cabin is situated in a great position for sea views (excepting the occasional bit of sea mist), within easy walking distance to the village of Bantham, the beach and cliff walks, The Sloop Inn is worth a mention for a refreshing stop!
Caroline is a very helpful host. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cabin if you are looking for a quiet space from which to enjoy seaside days, cliff walks and exploring the beautiful Devon countryside. A lovely retreat.
