Magnolia Cottage

South Pool, Devon

Just the spot for families with children, you’re right next to the water’s edge and the beautiful South Hams coast is yours to explore


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 5


Among rolling Devon hills at the heart of the pretty and popular South Pool is your open-plan cottage. Dating back to the 18th century, its light-filled modern interior is peppered with nods to the past and bright fabrics add a splash of colour against whitewashed walls. The inviting master bedroom has a well-dressed bed and painted furniture, and children will like the tall white bunk beds in the second bedroom. On your first morning rustle up a delicious breakfast (supplies are left for you in the fridge) in your sleek, open-plan kitchen/dining space and admire the beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. You could stay and lounge on deep comfy sofas by the wood-burner, but there’s so much to do in the area – ask lovely housekeeper Becky for tips. Explore the South Hams coastline, hire a kayak, potter around the independent shops in Kingsbridge then come back to soak up the sun on your terrace that overhangs the brook (mind toddlers). If you don’t feel like cooking, pop next door to the award-winning, foodie Millbrook Inn – popular in the summer, the hubbub of its garden reaches yours, but they don’t open late.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Ruth Bennion

  • Just a step away from the award-winning pub, The Millbrook Inn for great, honest fare. Eat lots of seafood in Kingsbridge, Bigbury and South Milton.
  • Near the top end of South Pool creek, this quirky, pretty village is within the area of outstanding natural beauty of South Devon and within reach of a multitude of sandy beaches.
  • Walk the coastal paths for breathtaking views and take in fishing villages along the way. Visit nearby Dartmouth and take a boat trip.
  • You are perfectly placed to explore the stunning South Hams coastline – from the white Sands of South Milton, East Prawle and Bantham to the popular and glamour of nautical Salcombe.
  • Visit Bigbury on Sea (famous for its art deco hotel and Agatha Christie tales)
  • Hire a kayak from nearby Kingsbridge
