Kingsbridge, Devon, England
Island House boasts an enviable position in a beautiful rural location and a large fully enclosed garden with a patio. The property was tastefully and thoroughly renovated in 2014.

The South West Coast Path, the longest footpath in Britain, passes close to the village and provides superb walking through stunning and dramatic countryside.

It is a spacious, comfortable, well equipped and in a perfect location. It's just a twenty minute walk to the sea and less than a minute to the...

The house was wonderfully situated for exploring quaint villages and beautiful coves. The house itself was well equipped in a small village with adequate space for all our family which was three generations. All the family enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Management response:

We are so pleased that you enjoy the South Hams as much as we do.
