Find cottages in KingsbridgeVisit Kingsbridge

More than a tourist destination, the ancient town of Kingsbridge marks the crossroads between Dartmoor, Torbay and Plymouth. This beautiful region is known as South Hams and is rich in both wild countryside and busy, picturesque towns.

ingsbridge is ostensibly a market town, its heritage drawn from the Buckfast Abbey Monks trading their produce of vegetables, honey and cream in the 13th century. The vibrant market is still held regularly and is very much in keeping with Devon's focus on sustainable farming and locally sourced goods.

The town has been awarded the original 'Walkers are Welcome' accreditation in Devon and indeed, from the early Spring through to the mild, late Winters, Kingsbridge provides a variety of walks and cycle paths for all abilities, including the new Family Walking and Wildlife Activity Trail.

Being situated on the Kingsbridge estuary means water based activities are in abundance, including canoeing, carp fishing and sailing from the nearby Salcombe Harbour. The town has a trendy surf vibe thanks to the excellent Bantham surfing beach very close by, and a lesson at the surfing academy is a super, fun day out for families.

The arable land, lush pastures and clean seas produce a world-class array of foods. Restaurants and pubs in the Kingsbridge area specialise in superb fish and fresh vegetarian rich in natural flavours. A traditional South Devon crab sandwich is a must for all visitors and don't forget to treat yourself to a gooey Devon afternoon tea.

This is a charming and amiable town that welcomes visitors throughout the year. The best way to get a sense of the true Devonian lifestyle is to stay locally, so search for cottages in Kingsbridge and discover a unique way to accommodate your holiday.
