Herons,located in the picturesque and peaceful South Devon village of South Pool on the Salcombe estuary is an enchanting and spacious listed cottage that dates from the 16th Century and at one time was the village shop. The cottage is most attractively furnished with every home comfort provided and the rooms are beautifully decorated with a wealth of interesting features and original beams. Furthermore Herons has a lovely private landscaped garden and sunny patio at the rear. South Pool is one of the prettiest creekside villages in the South Hams, with quaint thatched cottages facing onto a quiet lane brimming with summer hanging baskets and fronted with attractive cottage gardens. A stream meanders through the village and ends at the creek approximately fifty yards from Herons where you can wander along the footpath beside the water (but not at high tide). A rowing boat is available for Herons’ guests during the summer season. By motor boat, Salcombe is a lazy 15 minute journey from the village and on a Spring tide the village jetty is accessible two hours either side of high tide. The nearby and welcoming Millbrook Inn is renowned for its delicious food.
