Coming to Kingsbridge?
If you love the energy and history of an English market town, then Kingsbridge is the perfect place to visit when you’re in Devon. The town is set on the Salcombe estuary, and miles of green, rolling countryside can be found further inland. The estuary itself provides a popular place for water sports, and the South West Coast Path and South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are both within easy reach.
A short drive south of Kingsbridge, you’ll find Salcombe, one of Devon’s most beautiful seaside towns. With the sea on its doorstep, Salcombe is a hugely popular spot for surfing and family days out, and the town itself is dotted with interesting boutiques, high street favourites and independent vendors selling local produce. If you’re passing through Salcombe, be sure to try the delectable ice cream from Salcombe Dairy, and the award-winning Salcombe Gin.
Trek to Start Point Lighthouse
Start Point is one of the most well-known landmarks of Devon: a scenic promontory on the southernmost point of the county. The walk towards this rustic white tower will take you through beautiful, rolling countryside, and regular guided tours will give you some fascinating insight into the story of the lighthouse and the important role it played throughout the area’s history.
