In former times the quay was constructed so that working sailing barges could tie up as close as possible to the tidal channel leading up to Kingsbridge. The current owners make use of two running moorings from the property and the opportunity to apply for and reinstate these moorings is available on contacting Salcombe Harbour Authority.
The estuary leading between Kingsbridge and Salcombe is well known and needs little introduction. As well as its natural beauty it provides safe boating and sailing on sheltered inland tidal waters with a maze of creeks and inlets waiting to be explored. Additionally those with seagoing boats can experience the thrill of going to sea and enjoy the vistas of many of the highest cliffs along the South Devon coastline. Salcombe, with its chandlery and boating outlets and well known sandy beaches and coves is readily accessible by water.
Within half a mile along a near level walk is the Town Square of Kingsbridge which leads directly to the main shopping street and to restaurants and public houses, commercial facilities and clubs and societies for all ages including a Sports Centre and Swimming Pool. Kingsbridge Community College is within walking distance of the property. Kingsbridge has the usual health facilities and two supermarkets. There are three golf courses within ten miles and the long distance coastal path is at its nearest point some five miles distant. Dartmoor is twelve miles away as also is the A38 Devon Expressway and the mainline train station at Totnes.
