Management response:

Thank you so much Sally for your feedback, I am pleased the apt. was up to standard, I am afraid the Devon lanes are part of the beauty of the place and am sorry you couldn't appreciate them, maybe try again and you will get used to them after a few days. Bernice

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is within a lovely village with a church and a village hall with fantastic far reaching views towards Dartmoor.The hall holds different functions and entertainment depending on the time of year.
The accommodation is surrounded by a working farm so there maybe sheep and cattle on the fields which add to the rural feeling.
On low tides the beaches along the estuary merge into one fabulous stretch of golden sands with safe bathing water. There are many other beaches within a few miles accessed via the coastal path which is about 10 minutes walk from the apartment.
Car advised
How to get there
When arriving at Kingsbridge make sure to take theA379 towards Dartmouth. Carry on this road until you reach Frogmore, take the right hand turn over a small bridge sign posted East Portlemouth and East Prawle. Follow the road up the hill and take the left hand turn also signposted East Portlemouth, ignore satnav which will send you straight on to South Pool which is a tidal road and very narrow. Continue to follow East Portlemouth signs, approx 5 miles. Just before You reach the village there is a left hand turn to Rickham and Gara Rock, take this and follow the road down the hill to a triangle of grass. Orchard Cottage is just below this.
