Patchwork Cottage is a delightful Victorian end of terrace property situated just off a quiet pedestrian walkway in the market town of Kingsbridge in South Devon. This historic bustling town is located on the head of the estuary and boasts many independent shops, restaurants and a cinema which is housed in the historical old town hall. Only a stone's throw away by car some of Devon's finest beaches, Thurlestone sands, Bantham and Bigbury on Sea as well as the pretty coastal town of Salcombe renown for its annual sailing regatta, making Patchwork Cottage an ideal base. This two bedroom cottage sleeps four guests and is situated next to Duncombe Park, perfect for a child and dog friendly stay. Internally, the cottage retains many of its Victorian features, including the stripped pine doors and original fireplaces (decorative only) yet still offers all of the home comforts of a modern residence. For cosy nights in, the living room has a delightful wood burner or for warmer summers evenings, enjoy alfresco dining on the outside decking area. This two pet friendly cottage has a walled garden full of shrubs and herbaceous plants and enjoys views out over the green space of the park and rooftops. An ideal town stay but nestled away for peace and tranquility.
