Superb views, high quality and extreme comfort describe this lovely apartment situated on the second floor. 11 The Moorings is most attractively and comfortably furnished, enjoys stunning views from all rooms, including the bedrooms and has its own balcony with drinks table and chairs. The apartment provides its own mooring for up to 4.5m visitors’ boats by arrangement with the owner and the Harbour Master.
The Moorings is an impressive development situated on the water’s edge of the beautiful Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary and occupies probably the best situation in Kingsbridge. Set in attractive, shared, landscaped and enclosed gardens alongside the estuary, with occasional seating, although not suitable for children’s games, they provide an idyllic spot to appreciate the views. All the apartments enjoy these superb views from most of their rooms, balconies and/or terraces with vistas down towards Salcombe, across to the wooded banks and meadows on the opposite side and upstream to the town itself. The town, a short walk, approximately one third of a mile on the level along the embankment, has a wide range of interesting shops, restaurants, pubs, two major supermarkets and a fine leisure centre. Electric gates secure the entrance to The Moorings and there is designated parking for two cars for 11 the Moorings and further visitor parking. Good sandy beaches within 5 miles.

Everything about the property was excellent and we very much enjoyed our stay.
Good location and help from Pauline, for which, many thanks.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Perfect accommodation, brilliant location.
We have used this property over several years now and we are never disappointed, even when the weather has been poor. Not this time! The sun shone all the time and as ever everything was spotlessly clean and welcoming.
Three years ago I rated this Apartment 5* this is my third visit and I am pleased to say the high standards have been maintained. Thanks to the Owners and all Toad Hall staff involved
Enjoyed our stay very much
As in previous years everything was of a high standard including the weather
Yes, we did enjoy our stay......We have visited The Moorings many times...... mainly Apt 11. Further, we have booked again for end of April/May 2019.
We will be back
This property was even better than we had expected! A real gem. Thank you to the owners and caretakers for such a lovely property. It was comfortable, quiet, so well equipped and oh those views! We hope to visit again one day. Best regards, Nancy and Paul
Although some years since our last visit, this was our 3rd time at No 11. We were impressed by the fact that the high standards we had enjoyed some 11 years ago have been maintained. Despite being snowed in on the Sunday (more time to study the birds on the waterside) and family not being able to join us, we had an excellent week. We will return in the not too distant future.
Other than the changeable weather. The apartment was one of the best we have stayed at.
Delighted to find everything needed in the kitchen (including salad spinner)! Very enjoyable stay
See my email 27th Jan
Absolutely first class apartment .. really homely feel with quality furnishings .. a lot of thought has gone into every detail and would thoroughly recommend to friends. The owners have definitely gone the extra mile to make it welcoming.
Once again we enjoyed our stay at the Moorings. We look forward to our next visit Early May 2018. Many thanks.
Yes a very relaxing week!
Once again thank you Toad Hall your service is excellent and your website is so easy to use. We had a very enjoyable stay at No 11 The Moorings as always
Very enjoyable stay as in previous years. Excellent apartment. Lovely views of the estuary with its wildlife, lots of different birds and feeding fish with the changing tides. Good for visting the area ie Salcombe Dartmouth and various National Trust premises
Enjoyed our stay very much. It was my first holiday for nine years! Having friends with me to help with my husband who has vascular dementia was a great . Kingsbridge is where I was born so I was able to catch up with my relatives . Again it was very enjoyable thank you.
We have taken holidays in South Hams for the past 37 years, generally selecting grade 4* and above from major letting companies in the Area ( including Toad Hall and Helpful Holidays) This is the first property I can genuinely rate as Five Star. The owners Mr & Mrs Oakley are to be congratulated on their taste, high standards of decor, furnishings and equipment, also the cleaning staff prepared the flat immaculately. Many Thanks also for the wine which was very drinkable. David Parr
The apartment was superb and well stocked with everything needed to make our stay very comfortable. The owners left a welcome card and bottle of wine which was a lovely touch.
This was by far the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in - and we have been to a lot, not often you can say "excellent" for everything! Pristine, well furnished & equipped. Wonderful location. Booking via Toad Hall Cottages was easy, with friendly & professional staff. The booking was by recommendation, understandably so. All in all fantastic - Thanks to all concerned. Please pass on our thanks to the owners.
Toad Hall are the most courteous and helpful cottage holiday booking company I have ever come across nothing is too much trouble. Would recommend this company to anyone looking for a holiday in the South West.
The quality of furnishings in this apartment are way in excess of any other holiday apartment I have rented. It is just like a persons home.
An excellent Holiday......we have booked again ......same time next year. Thank you
Have never had any reason to complain about Toad Hall, all very efficient. 11 The Moorings is such a super place to stay and so well equipped for self catering that all you need to take is your clothes.
This was our fifth visit to 11 The Moorings and once again we weren`t disappointed. We had a lovely relaxing week in this superb pristine apartment which contains everything you could need for a very enjoyable holiday. The fact the apartment overlooks the estuary makes it very special with beautiful views.
This property is superb
This was our fourth visit to 11 The Moorings and once again we had a lovely relaxing holiday in a beautiful apartment. The apartment is spacious and contains everything you could possibly want. The decor together with the furnishings and fittings are beautiful and together with the view what more could you want.
Excellent stay in a lovely apartment with wonderful views.
This booking through Toadhall Cottages would give us certain confidence to be more than happy to book any cottage listed with them again.
Had a great weeks holiday in a fantastic property.
This property is exceptional and we've loved it each of the three years we've used it. We need good accessibility for my elderly mother which this provides as well as beautiful views and easy walking to the town
11 The Moorings exceeded our expectations. It is the most comprehensively equipped apartment we have ever had. With river views from all rooms the location is perfect. It is a great choice for 4 sharing as the apartment is spacious. We found the caretaker most helpful when we rang her before our visit.
