Thyme Cottage is a Georgian gem tucked down a tiny side alley off the main shopping street of Kingsbridge, the bustling hub of the South Hams. The cottage benefits from a most attractive garden with an unusual covered al fresco dining area and built-in barbecue. With charming, spacious and most comfortable rooms situated in the centre of town, it is within walking distance of all the amenities that the delightful market town of Kingsbridge has to offer with an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, an outdoor market, a Sports and Leisure Centre with large indoor pool, squash courts and gym and the picturesque quayside of the Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary. At the nearby quayside you can hop on a ferry that will take you on a relaxing cruise around the creeks or follow the estuary all the way to Salcombe. From Kingsbridge you are spoilt for choice of places to visit, little hamlets and villages scattered across the surrounding countryside or take the beautiful scenic coastal road to neighbouring Dartmouth, famous for its sailing and naval history. Perhaps more importantly for some are the fantastic cliffs and golden beaches that make this part of the South Hams such a perfect holiday destination.
