Things to See & Do in Kingsbridge

Home » See & Do

There are lots of things to enjoy, see and do in the Salcombe / Kingsbridge area. The market town of Kingsbridge sits at the top of the Salcombe / Kingsbridge estuary, and is only a ten minute walk away from High House Farm.

There are plenty of shops selling local produce, a farmers’ market on the quay every other week throughout the year, restaurants, pubs and three-screen cinema. A swimming pool at Quayside Leisure Centre as well as squash courts and gym.

Salcombe and Dartmouth lay approx 7 miles from Kingsbridge. From Dartmouth you can enjoy boat trips up the river Dart or enjoy the Salcombe / Kingsbridge estuary with trips leaving Kingsbridge quay and arriving in Salcombe.

From Salcombe you can visit the wonderful, sandy beaches, walk across to Bolt Head and enjoy a refreshing drink in the many pubs or a meal at the restaurants serving fresh, locally caught fish.

Rainy days needn’t spoil your stay, the city of Plymouth (approx 20 miles) and city of Exeter (40 miles), are both within easy reach with excellent shopping and restaurants.

You can also find fantastic indoor activities including The Aquarium in Plymouth and Crealy Adventure Park in Exeter.
