4/5 Good

Frogmore review
Lovely little house with handy pub close by. Great if you SUP as you can launch from bottom of garden. Not such a good location for running as only one footpath close by.

Beautiful Cottage on the Estuary
We stayed at this lovely well kept cottage whilst down in Devon for a family wedding. We only wished we could have stayed longer. The location is excellent, a short 5 minute drive in to Kingsbridge town, there are a couple of Supermarkets there so very easy to stock up. The cottage itself backs on to the Estuary and it is well worth a walk down there when the tide is out. The garden and Summerhouse are definitely a main attraction and ideal for sitting out at the end of the garden with a view of the Estuary. Thanks again for a great stay !

Peaceful setting by the creek
Croake Cottage has a garden that runs down to the creek in Frogmore, the high reaches of the Salcombe Estuary. Sitting on the lawn or in the summerhouse watching the changing water levels and wildlife the tide brings is a highlight if staying here. This cottage was very clean and well appointed. The king size bed was extremely comfortable with good quality linen. The kitchen had plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen utensils. This little cottage is ideal for one or two couples or a small family. and a good base for visiting South Hams The Globe Inn pub is a few yards away and we found it welcoming with good food.
