At the mouth of an unspoilt creek on the eastern shores of Kingsbridge Estuary, is the village of South Pool, once described as “the loveliest piece of waterway in the district.” The village is served by a magnificent 13th century church and the award winning Millbrook Inn. Surrounded by tumbling hillsides and pretty hamlets, and far away from main roads, this historic settlement is adored for its thatched cottages and old cob walls. Nestled in the heart of the village is The Cyder House, a traditional country cottage with original stone features. Behind the cottage is a gorgeous sunny terrace and barbecue area with lovely views over the village rooftops. It’s also one of our dog-friendly cottages. Large families will love Orchard View. This spacious dog-friendly cottage sleeps 12 guests, and has a playroom, trampoline and adventure playground to keep the kids entertained. Lilac Cottage, a newly renovated, five-star cottage, is perfect for a romantic getaway. Extremely well presented throughout, it provides stylish and comfortable accommodation for four guests. With easy access to the main Kingsbridge to Dartmouth road and lots of beautiful beaches nearby, a holiday cottage in South Pool makes a great base to explore this stunning corner of South Devon.
