Stunning Spacious property


Had a Brilliant stay at this lovely and spacious property. Our favourite part was the log burner which gave it a warm, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The property was fabulously equipped with the Christmas tree and bottle of fizz a lovely addition. A great selection of DVDs and games kept us entertained for the whole stay. It was lovely to be able to walk the dogs in the beautiful surrounding area, what a great and relaxing stay it was!

Cosy, well equipped and lovely location


Perfect for my pre-Christmas get away. Pet friendly and homely. Thank you for a perfect location for my break. I can recommend a visit to The Queen’s Arms Slapton Village as well!

Hidden gem in a great location.

Such a great property, well equipped, well located, comfortable and cosy. We went as a family with ages from 12-70 yrs and 2 dogs. We found some amazing beaches to walk the dogs, Beesands had the best fish and chips and we even saw a seal one day. Local to Salcombe, kingsbridge and many more. The cottage is just what we needed and there were some excellent pubs for food and farm shops to get food to eat in. I would recommend it but I don't want anyone to find out about this great find!!!

A hidden gem in the heart of the countryside

Kingfisher Cottage was a very pleasant surprise. A beautiful cottage. Large living space which is ideal for families or small groups. Everything in the cottage was of very good quality and was designed for both comfort and elegance. The place was spotlessly clean and very welcoming. The owners allow dogs but you would not have guessed on arrival. We had a perfect weekend.
