Kingsbridge, Devon


A cosy two bedroom property, Pearl River Cottage is a beautifully positioned retreat situated in the village of West Alvington, located between Kingsbridge and Salcombe in the beautiful South Hams.


The warm climate and award-winning beaches enjoyed by South Devon have kept it a fashionable holiday resort for many generations. Torquay, Paignton and Brixham make up Torbay, one of the most popular areas for holidays in South Devon, and the area also includes the coastal towns of Dawlish, Teignmouth and Starcross.

The South Hams

The South Hams are the tourism heart of Devon, an inviting area to explore and discover, combining untouched rugged coastline with beautiful and often deserted beaches.  The estuaries at Dartmouth and Salcombe are close by, providing numerous opportunities for visitors, naval history in Dartmouth, sailing in Salcombe, and Board Paddling in Kingsbridge to name a few.  

For those looking for a slower pace of life, rolling hills hide picturesque villages and spectacular views along a coast that is is perfect for walking along, mottled with coves and beaches, often only accessible by foot.  

Slightly further afield but still within driving distance is the city of Plymouth, home to a variety of shopping, eateries, attractions and the historic Barbican district.

Kingsbridge Area

From Totnes and Ivybridge to Dartmouth and Salcombe, The South Hams sits between the moors and the sea providing you with the best of South Devon’s rolling countryside and 60 miles of dramatic and ever-changing coastline.

There are six historic towns that collectively form The South Hams each with their own individual charm and unique characteristics; Dartmouth, Salcombe, Ivybridge, Totnes, Kingsbridge and Modbury. Meander along the pretty narrow streets and historic harbours and you will find a welcoming selection of gift shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and bars.

Head towards the coast and you will be greeted with an amazing selection of golden beaches and hidden coves. For the adventurous among us, water sports are available at many of the larger beaches while the smaller coves offer a peaceful retreat and are perfect for relaxing with a good book and a picnic.
