Local information

  • Bowcombe Creek is the most northerly creek of the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary and is about 1 mile from the bustling town centre. The iconic 5 arched bridge that spans this beautiful expanse of water was constructed in 1826 by James Meadows Rendel and was originally built as a swingbridge. The waters edge just beyond the bridge is used as a launch pad for canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding and offers a lovely picnic spot. There are wonderful river and woodland walks on your doorstep but if you want to go further afield, there are a number of beaches and the largest fresh water lake in the southwest known as Slapton Ley, and these are all within about 6 miles. Kingsbridge is a busy community with the town centre offering a cinema, a leisure centre, a medical centre, 2 supermarkets, the highly regarded secondary school KCC and an abundance of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes.
