Guests especially like The Creamery because although tucked away in the countryside and very peaceful it also has easy road access unlike many properties in Devon that are down very long and narrow Devon lanes! Its location makes it perfect to explore in all directions with easy access to a number of beaches so you can do different beaches easily on different days and easily access the local towns and tourist attractions too.
The Creamery is surrounded by beautiful open fields, and rolling Devon countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is nestled on the edge of the delightful historic Kingston village with its own village pub, the Dolphin Inn with local real ales. A number of stunning local sandy beaches are in walking distance, including Wonwell beach, Aymer Cove, Westcombe beach, and Bigbury on Sea beach and Burgh island. A short car journey takes you to Bigbury on Sea, Mothercombe beach, Thurlestone beach, Bantham beach, Hope Cove, and the North and South Sands beaches in the delightful town of Salcombe. The South West Coastal Path runs close by for any walkers and Dartmoor National Park is easily reachable with its fells just 25 minutes drive away with stunning views, its ten Torrs, waterfalls and rivers for a great day out. Burgh Island (and The hotel of Agatha Christie fame) at Bigbury on Sea is just a 15 minute drive away with its infamous beach tractor and the Pilchard Inn for fresh crab sandwiches. The Journeys End, an award winning pub with its real ales and terrific food, is also close by in Ringmore village. And for golfers, Bigbury Golf Club is a great course that also does take away food and is just 10 mins away with incredible sea views from the greens. The list of things to do and see are endless.
There are so many opportunities to get out on the water too. Bigbury's sandy beach with a cafe and facilities is great for swimming, surfing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. (There is a surf school (Discovery) at Bigbury beach where surfboards, paddleboards and sea kayaks can be hired).
Modbury (10 mins drive) is the local market town with butcher, baker, chemist, Coop, Indian take away and antique shops. Local farm shops in abundance. Kingsbridge ( 15-20 mins drive ) has a cinema, quaint cafes and restaurants and local supermarkets (Tesco and Morrisons). Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose all deliver.
The local village shop and Post Office in St Ann's Chapel (4 min drive) stocks most basic things and local food products.
