Woodspring Overview

Available during the July and August weeks, Woodspring sits on Bowcombe Creek which forms part of the popular Salcombe-Kingsbridge estuary. With lots of toys available in Woodspring’s boat house for guest use (including wetsuits, life jackets, boating waterproofs, fishing gear, and 2 paddle boards) this is a home with lots to do for everyone. There is also the house’s running mooring located at the bottom of the driveway for guest use – perfect for hopping onto the boat for trips to the beaches or up creeks towards some of the popular country pubs. A Swedish wood-fired hot tub in front of the house and a private gym in the basement add to the fantastic facilities of Woodspring.

Set within two acres of gardens and woodland this is an exceptional architect designed south-facing house. That means all day sunshine for the residents of Woodspring – perfect for an alfresco breakfast in the morning, or that all important evening sundowner overlooking the estuary. For evenings under the stars, there is an open fire and a beautiful wood fired oven nestled in the garden under the trees, perfect for long lazy lunches or feasting in to the evening.  Toasting marshmallows and finding your inner Jamie Oliver is a must in this truly magical new area at Woodspring. Or why not fire up the hot tub and enjoy a glass of bubbles with a spectacular view?

As you walk up the steps from the parking area you will enter the main wing of Woodspring. The large open plan kitchen, indoor dining, and seating area are flawless in design. The indoor dining area can seat up to 12 making it perfect for entertaining and socialising. Two dishwashers in the kitchen keep the washing up at bay and a large drinks fridge can store up to 30 bottles of your favourite red and white wines. You will also find a Nespresso coffee machine and DeLonghi filter coffee peculator in the main kitchen.

Next door to this open plan area is a living room with phenomenal views through large glass sliding windows down the estuary. If you can take your eyes off the view, there is a large television with Apple TV, Sky and DVD. And leading down the beautifully curved stairs you will find the incredible media/cinema room with a 60″ screen and home cinema sound system. Again there is Apple TV, Sky, DVD and Xbox 360 with plenty of games for the whole family, plus a huge library of children’s DVD’s. To help create your perfect cinema night, there are even two drinks fridges ready for you to fill, and a popcorn machine for that all important movie snack. Also on this level you will find the private gym which has weights, a bike, a cross trainer, kettle bells, sit-up station and swiss ball.

Running along the front of Woodspring are huge sliding glass doors which lead out to various dining and seating areas along with an outdoor barbecuing station and a wood-fired hot tub. The outside dining table is large enough to seat 16 guests for alfresco dining with views over Bowcombe bridge and up the Salcombe-Kingsbridge estuary. The Sonos built in sound system runs in the main parts of the house and on the terraces.

Outside there are gardens and woodland to explore with lovely pathways that run through the woods for plenty of exploring and wildlife hunting. Or take the pace down a notch and enjoy a game of boules on the lawn with a little drink in hand.

Next to main lawn nestled under the trees, you will find a wonderful oasis of calm where you can wile away the hours with your loved ones, eating, drinking and cooking in Woodspring’s stunning wood fired oven cooking area. If day turns to night, throw some logs on the open fire, then relax and enjoy a cosy evening under the stars; truly magical.

For the chefs in the group there are raised herb and vegetable beds and you are encouraged to pick your own and enjoy the freshest herbs the South Hams has to offer!

There are two wings to Woodspring and the main proportion contains the primary living spaces plus four bedrooms on the first floor. Each of the four bedrooms has their own en suite bathroom and three of the bedrooms have spectacular views over the estuary. The master bedroom with super king bed has Sky TV and a bags of space and light. In the morning slide back the large glass windows and breathe in the sea air from your Juliette balcony. There are two further super king bedrooms with their own balconies and outdoor seating areas. There is also a double bedroom with spectacular estuary views.

In the annexe wing, there are three bedrooms – two kingsize and one twin room. There is a large family bathroom for the annexe wing plus it has its own Italian hideaway kitchen and Nespresso coffee machine. The open plan living space contains the kitchen, dining and living areas. The dining table seats four and there is an outdoor dining table plus sun loungers on the terrace.

No smoking in the house. Pets not allowed. Allergies: please note that dogs have been in Woodspring.
