Four bedroom converted semi-detached boathouse on the shore of the Salcombe estuary that sleeps 8 a short walk from Kingsbridge, ideal for family friendly coastal breaks in Devon.
Superb views from the balcony and most windows extend across the water to unspoiled countryside on the opposite side of the estuary.

Or just relax and watch the passing river craft, and enjoy the natural beauty with its abundant wildlife, of these stunning surroundings.
