Waterhead Cottage,Kingsbridge

This fantastic four bedroom period cottage is situated a short distance from where the creek ends, in a unique and totally secluded position right on the water’s edge alongside the estuary near East Portlemouth. A more heavenly spot would be hard to find. Waterhead Cottage has been totally modernised, extended and refurnished to a very high standard and provides exceptionally comfortable, home from home accommodation, with the most incredible estuary and countryside views anywhere in the UK.  At low water the tide is out and you can walk across the estuary, over the fields to the local pub at South Pool, about one mile away, but remember the tide for the return trek! All rooms have glorious views and the cottage has a good sized garden.
