About James Shenton

Married with 3 children children living in Kent. We have been running Kingfisher Cottage a highly successful holiday home business since buying it in May 2007. During this time the cottage has been extensively refurbished and we also enjoy our holidays at Kingfisher Cottage.

James Shenton purchased this barn in 2007

Why James Shenton chose South Hams

We bought Kingfisher Cottage after visiting the South Hams area many times as we realised that it was the ideal place to have a holiday home with excellent beaches, pubs and estuary towns (Kingsbridge, Dartmouth, Salcombe) combined with a host of activities and sports for all ages. The area also offers a fine range of local produce to cook in or sample in the local pubs. We specifically bought Kingfisher Cottage as it is a spacious character barn conversion which is located in a beautiful location next to a spring fed duck pond. The cottage is close to all the attractions and award winning beaches, but is in a peaceful location and has plenty of parking.

What makes this barn unique

Kingfisher Cottage is a spacious barn Conversion which is set in a Area of Natural Beauty and is ideally situated in the South Hams centrally between Dartmouth and Salcombe and close to Kingsbridge. The cottage offers luxury accommodation and benefits from Free WI-FI / Broadband, incoming phone line, 32 Inch Sony LCD TV, Blue Ray Player with DVD Library, iPod / iPhone HIFI. Kingfisher Cottage also has its own great tasting filtered spring water supply so no need for bottled water. The rental prices also include linen, towels, electricity, heating.
