The Boathouse is an incredibly bright and spacious reverse level house overlooking the beautiful estuary in Kingsbridge
If your perfect holiday involves lazy summer days, dreaming away the afternoon while watching the world sail by, there could not be a better spot than the Boat House in Kingsbridge. This two-bedroom, reverse level house is bright and airy inside and thoughtfully furnished with a nautical theme, so there will be no mistaking your waterside location.
On the first floor, you will find a fabulously bright and large open plan living, kitchen and dining area, equipped with everything thing you might need, whether you want to kick back in front of the TV, or cook a feast for the family. With three sofas and a dining table for six, there is plenty of space for the whole group to come together.
From the living area, you can step out onto the balcony with its truly spectacular views over the estuary. The scenery here is ever changing with an array of boats, paddle boarders and kayakers drifting on by throughout the day on the glorious estuary.
The Boat House is set in a beautiful spot in Kingsbridge, next door to the award winning Crabshell Inn and a short walk away from the Kingsbridge Leisure Centre which offers a wonderful swimming pool and an array of classes and activities for those days when the sun doesn't shine as brightly.
The town centre is a gentle five-minute walk away for when you need to collect those essentials, and if you fancy a day sunning yourself by the coast, there is a choice of beautiful, sandy beaches just a short drive away.

EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED
December 21st 2016
We had a great time staying at the boathouse in Kingsbridge for our first family holiday. The location was great, next to the river estuary and with stunning views over the south Devon countryside. Sofia (aged 7 months) loved the boathouse as soon as we arrived there and was able to crawl around easily in the safe and cosy lounge area. The pub next door had a great range of drinks and was lively and welcoming. The outside tables were vacated soon after closing time and noise wasn't a problem for us. During the week it was generally very quite, exactly what we needed. Kingsbridge village has a great range of independent shops including a butchers, fishmonger, fruit and veg store, wine store and deli. There're also two large supermarkets which came in handy. The local area is beautiful with some fantastic beaches only a few miles away - Bantham and Hope Cove both particularly memorable. All in all a great UK holiday and highly recommended.

Beautiful place! The view from the spacious balcony over the river is breath-taking! Enjoyed eating at pub next door.
