About Mr Philip Payne
We are a professional couple with adult children. We are happy to share our family holiday home retained for holidays and retreat with other families who will care for it as we do,sharing its facilities and splendid location.
Mr Philip Payne purchased this Chalet in 2009
Why Mr Philip Payne chose Kingsbridge
We bought this property because of our love of the South Hams area. Having dived this coastline for over 20 years and visiting throughout the Spring & Summer months we understood the value of the peace and tranquillity that this location provides and with Salcombe with its attractions and hustle and bustle only 10 minutes away.
What makes this Chalet unique
Our lodge has stunning views over National Trust headlands to the south and to the sea in the west and a large secluded grass area to the side. The South West coastal path is only a short walk as is Soar Mill Cove itself. It really being the hidden treasure of the location. When the other beaches in the area are packed, Soar Mill Cove won’t be. Here you will find clean sand, brilliant for sandcastle making, safe swimming for children,rock pools and streams to explore and all in walking distance from our lodge.

Lovely Stay in very spacious and clean Lodge and in a great location
The lodge had everything for the perfect stay ,we had fantastic weather and only a few minutes walk from the coastal path. The lodge itself is modern , very spacious and was very clean on arrival. We had no issues finding it and the access arrangement was easy/straightforward. The only small disappointment was the welcome card that mentioned the complimentary bottle of wine - there was no bottle to be seen so perhaps the card shouldn’t have been displayed on our arrival if the supply was an issue. This was not a problem as we had brought our own ! Would highly recommend this lodge/property and “Thank you” to the owners for a lovely 4-day half-term break
Everything we could have hoped for
After a long drive We arrived to an impressive , immaculately clean and very spacious lodge. We didn’t expect such a great living space and all the facilities including a complementary bottle of wine on our arrival. The location of the lodge is perfect for views and walks across the coastal Path which are right on your doorstep, Salcombe itself only 10 minutes by car.
It was so peaceful and quiet very easy to relax in its surroundings. The living space was perfect for an evening to chill out.
Philip was brilliant, if there were any questions he would respond quickly to queries.
My only suggestion would be that the bedroom and kitchen windows were able to open. Other than that I couldn’t fault it. I would highly recommend a stay.
Thank you again and hope to visit again soon

The place was clean, modern and very comfortable. We had a bottle of wine to welcome us there.
This has to be one of the most restful breaks that I have experienced. The fantastic view and the surrounding town and coves and the great weather added to the fun and relaxation.
Just what we needed!
A lovely, well-equipped holiday home in a beautiful part of the country. The lodge has everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay, regardless of the weather, providing way over and above the essentials. We were ideally situated as we were attending a wedding at Soar Mill Cove Hotel which is within walking distance, and as we'd booked the lodge for 4 nights, spent our free time exploring the cove and the surrounding area. A delightful hide -away........and we plan to return!!
Great location, clean and confortable
Fabulous stay in a beautiful lodge
The lodge was immaculate. Spotless, clean, inviting and modern. My kids and I had a wonderful time relaxing, playing games which were at the lodge. Watched DVD's also supplied. The kitchen had EVERYTHING one would need which was a pleasant surprise as most just have basics. lovely saucepans (Terence Conran). Beds were very comfy, more than adequate cupboard space. Shower was really nice and powerful. Views from the lodge were lovely too. great location as lots to do if you want but also if you don't, then you can just chill. Will definitely recommend. Oh and a bottle of wine on arrival which was lovely ;-)
Thanks for your kind review Suki. We try to ensure that our Lodge is a home from home. We too have often been frustrated by poorly equipped properties that we have rented on our holidays. We try to ensure that our guests have a better experience.
