Lodge in Kingsbridge, Devon, England - Stunning And Peaceful Location. Less Than A Mile From The Beach
About Caroline Montague
We are an outgoing and friendly couple who really enjoy letting our lodge to different people. Our aim is to make our guests happy and ensure that they have a relaxing and memorable holiday.
Caroline Montague purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Caroline Montague chose Thurlestone
It is in an unbeatable location: Peaceful and quiet, near pretty thatched villages and 10 minutes drive from the picturesque market town of Kingsbridge. It overlooks Bantham and Bigbury sandy beaches, with a direct view of Burgh Island. Sometimes you can see what is reputed to be the world's only working sea tractor transporting people from Bigbury to the island. The art deco hotel on Burgh Island is often featured on travel programmes. Noel Coward and Agatha Christie have both stayed at the hotel, and one of Christie's Hercule Poirot movies was filmed there. The A38 and railway station are only 30 minutes drive away. Dartmoor is half an hour's drive. Beautiful Salcombe takes 20 minutes in the car and Dartmouth only 40 minutes. Plymouth city is 45 minutes away. What more can you ask for?

The lodge was perfect for our stay. Caroline welcomed us when we arrived and the lodge was warm and comfortable with everything that we needed. Weather was perfect. We had lovely meals at both The Sloop and The ChurchHouse. A trip to Bigbury was lovely. We had taken our girls there when they were little and went over to Burgh Island on the sea tractor again. We’re looking forward to visiting Herons Reach again.
We really enjoyed our time at Herons Reach. Made to feel welcome by Caroline and nothing was too much trouble. The cabin is in a lovely quiet spot over looking the sea and Burgh Island. Just what we wanted and needed. Lovely and clean with all mod cons. Would have no reservations in recommending it. Highly recommended.
We had a lovely stay and such a beautiful view.
we have suggested to the owner some improvements that would greatly enhance this holiday
Very basic and lacking those essentials that go to making a comfortable and cosy holiday home
Beautiful setting and good price.
Lovely cabin for 2 people with everything you need,beautiful views looking out to Burgh Island. Very reasonably priced,we'll be returning for a longer visit next time.
Beautiful location, peace and quiet day and night and nice to hear the owls and pheasants in the evening. Great view of the beach (5 min drive) and the countryside which looked amazing with the morning mist in between the valleys. Lodge was great, clean and nice and warm on a winter evening. Decking area outside would be the perfect spot in the summer to sit out and enjoy the views. The owner was very friendly and made sure we knew where everything was when we arrived.
Thank you for a lovely peaceful weekend!
