Local information

  • The picturesque village of South Pool sits at the head of South Pool Creek, a tidal inlet off the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary. The village has a strong community spirit with many events being held throughout the year, including the Church Fete, village summer cricket matches and the very famous Duck Race! There are lovely footpaths in and around the village and there is a pontoon where villagers can keep their boats. The Millbrook Inn, a fabulous award winning pub, known for its gastro food and craft ales is very much in the heart of South Pool. Nearby are two farm shops, Springfield Farm Shop and Tearooms and Stokeley Barton, offering a range of pop up craft shops. If travelling by boat, Salcombe is about 2 miles downstream and the open sea is about one mile beyond. The town can also be reached on foot or bicycle on the ferry from East Portlemouth where you can also find the beautiful sandy beaches of Mil Bay and Sunny Cove. A yachting and water sports idyll, Salcombe also offers a beautiful harbour, spectacular cliff top walks and numerous boutique shops and restaurants. There are primary schools at West Charleton and Stokenham and the OFSTED ‘outstanding' rated Kingsbridge Community College is about 5 miles away. The A38 Devon Expressway is about 15 miles distant and provides links to Exeter, Plymouth and the M5.
