Marigold Cottage sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms (plus three bathrooms!) and sits in the popular South Hams area, amongst the glorious rolling Devon Hills just four miles from the market town of Kingsbridge. Sitting on a private country estate which was once used for producing cider, today the buildings have been converted into comfy holiday homes that benefit from excellent on-site facilities including a heated indoor swimming pool (open all year round), games room, pitch and put and an outdoor all weather tennis court.
A haven for walkers and sailors, Kingsbridge sits on an estuary and forms a very special part of the English Riviera which is much loved for its dramatic rugged coastline peppered with beautiful beaches for lazy days. The nearest sandy beaches to Marigold Cottage can be found less than twenty minutes away by car, in and around Salcombe (Bantham, Mill Bay and Thurlston) or head to Slapton Sands pretty pebble beach (just ten minutes away).
The popular harbour towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth attract visitors from far and wide, offering lots of fabulous shops, boutiques and galleries to browse, as well as restaurants and pubs for a meal out and an abundance of attractions.
For outdoor enthusiasts there are superb opportunities for water sports (including kayaking and sailing), pony trekking, kit surfing, cycling, golf (enjoy a round at Bigbury and Thurlestone), and miles of walks both through the glorious South Devon countryside and along the South West Coastal Path.
Alternatively, just enjoy lazy days on the beach with a picnic, crabbing, sun bathing and building sand castles.
