About Anthony Downes
Anthony and I (Sarah) stumbled across this idyllic location when we were camping one year. In a moment of madness we decided to keep our eye out for a house in Kellaton. Fortunately this property became available and so we embarked on a mad 10 month crusade to completely transform it. Our 3 very patient children were bundled in the car every Friday as we travelled from Bristol to Devon to then spend a weekend of serious DIY!!! The children loved every minute of it as the freedom of the countryside became their playground. They are now older and at universities but still enjoy the peace and quiet that our home gives us.
Why Anthony Downes chose Kingsbridge
If you want to feel like you can truly kick off your shoes and relax whilst looking out at the beautiful countryside, then Orchard View truly is for you. The open sky at night gives you a fantastic opportunity to star gaze with no city light pollution. Coastlines and great beaches are at your doorstep to be explored.

Delightful cottage in a beautiful part of Devon
We had a wonderful week exploring the local area and sampling the excellent pubs and restaurants nearby. The cottage is beautifully refurbished in a very peaceful environment, the view from the garden and the house on that side is lovely. The Southwest coast path makes for a very enjoyable trek, Start point lighthouse close by is open for tours and offers a very interesting visit. There are plenty of other attractions within a short drive. Be prepared for the narrow Devon lanes, though! We did enjoy the table tennis as well.
Both Anthony and Sarah rang us to make sure everything was OK. It was a lovely way to spend our wedding anniversary. I would recommend this accommodation and hope to be able to stay there again.
What a lovely area, peaceful, amazing beaches, nice places to visit, crabbing, fish and chips, boat rides... perfect thanks
Excellent property, very well appointed, exactly as described.
Very nice location, within good reach of many bays, coastal walks and Devon towns.
Beautiful setting and comfortable cottage.
We were very happy in this comfortable and well equipped "home from home" cottage. Very good communication from the owners.
Holiday Home from Home and more.
Everything you could wish for. Perfect for any kind of holiday, restful, beautiful scenery and every need catered for. Would be perfect for a honeymoon!
Looking forward to visiting again.
Lovely property in beautiful surroundings
We had a great week at Orchard View. Comfortable and spacious accommodation, lots to do in the surrounding area. Very helpful hosts.
South Hams is a beautiful district to explore. We are fortunate to live in a beautiful hamlet within South Hams. By walking out of our gate we can stroll through the country lanes to Lannacombe beach which is great for rock pooling. There are plenty of beaches locally, Mill Bay, Beesands and Blackpool Sands to name just a few. A short passenger ferry ride from East Portlemouth to Salcombe is a must! Salcombe is one of our favourite places to visit as we like to stroll along the coastal path to the Winking Prawn Beach Cafe. Dartmouth is also a lovely place to visit. If you enjoy visiting National Trust properties Coleton Fishacre, Greenways and Overbecks are lovely and are great for children. We are fortunate to have wonderful coastal walks directly from our property. From Lannacombe beach you can walk left to Start Point Lighthouse and right towards Prawle Point and beyond. There is a wonderful restaurant/cafe called Garra Rock which is on the coastal path. You can drive to it or as we do, walk from either Prawle, East Portlemouth or take the coastal path from Mill Bay.
There are lovely places to eat locally, the Start Bay Inn at Torcross, the Cricket Inn at Beesands and the Church House Inn at Stokenham. We have ventured further afield to a great seafood restaurant towards Bigbury called the Oyster Shack which is great! All in all, there is so much to enjoy either from our door or a short drive away. Our visitors book is always full of great suggestions of fundays our guests have had.
