About our Luxury Bed and Breakfast for Adults in the South Hams
Higher Leigh House in the South Hams is perfectly located for the beach, the coastal paths, the moors and local shopping and eating. Being only 20 minutes drive from the main route between Exeter and Plymouth – the A38 dual carriageway- Higher Leigh House is nestled in a quiet and little known valley and yet is only 2 miles from Kingsbridge – the “capital” of South Hams. Salcombe is 8 miles from us. Accessibility is offered, therefore, in combination with peace and quiet.
Bantham Beach, famous for its sand and surfing, is just 4 1/2 miles from Higher Leigh House. Delightful coastal walks stretch north and south all offering great scenery and seaside experiences. Great golf in beautiful coastal cliff top settings is available at nearby Thurlestone Golf Club and Bigbury Golf Club. There is also a wide range of other activities available locally.
Dartmoor National Park is only 30 minutes from the house and within moments you are plunged deep into its mystical scenery and wilderness.
The house has a large garden enjoyed by its guests as well as its residents – our dog and cat. The garden teems with wild birds including the local heron feasting on the fish in our ponds. With over one acre in which to wander there is a summer house, two ponds, a wild flower meadow, honey bees, a vegetable plot and a host of private spots for relaxing and sun bathing.
Both the house and the garden are designed for relaxation for adults in a child-free environment giving an opportunity to unwind and enjoy. Come and share the pleasures of Salcombe and the rest of South Devon in a relaxed home environment where you can kick off your shoes and chill.
Please note that we are unable to accept pets.
Covid-19 precautions have been implemented for the benefit of guests and staff.
Staying With Us
Higher Leigh House has been furnished and decorated as our home with many treasured finds from travels across the world.
The sophisticated “home from home” feel invites you to relax and savour the charms of South Devon. The generous luxuries of the living rooms and the tastefully furnished bedrooms all offer delightful views. You are welcome to enjoy the house and garden during the day as well as explore the sights and activities in the surrounding area.
Our aim is to provide a relaxing home and retreat with help and assistance on hand to make your stay a lasting memory. Being fully licensed enables us to offer a range of carefully selected alcoholic drinks as well as soft drinks.
Due to the nature of the garden and house, however, Higher Leigh House is not suitable for children and so we are unable to accept young guests under the age of 18. We are also unable to accept pets.
