Wharf Corner is part of a nineteen century stone-built wharehouse which served Bow Creek and the River Dart. You’ll love the outstanding scenery, the waterside location and the opportunities for boating, crabbing and fishing. It's good for couples, families (with kids), and well-behaved furry friends (pets).
The apartment is part of an old stone warehouse, probably dating from about 1800 and converted 30 years ago into 3 substantial apartments. It is situated on the banks of Bow Creek, a tidal tributary of the River Dart, its name reflecting its origins. It has its own small patio area and shares the quayside with the adjacent apartment The quayside comprises seating, a small summerhouse and a set of steps from which our kayak can be launched. You can also bring your own form of river transport. Fishing from the quayside is permitted, but sea bass fishing from boats is prohibited.
Good local facilities for eating and drinking are within easy walking distance: the Maltsters Arms (once 'Floyd's Inn) is literally next door and is a popular refreshment stop for boats when the tide is right; the Watermans Arms, only 5 minutes upstream, is a river-, rather than creek-side, location with a lovely outside riverside garden. Totnes is ~4 miles by car, or glorious 3.5 mile walk first through Asprington and then alongside or overlooking the river Dart. Blackpool Sands is ~25 minutes minutes away by car. 55 minutes away, but with good sand rather than shingle is East Portlemouth, opposite the yachting resort of Salcombe.
Wharf Corner has shared use of the quayside facilities, from which guests can launch small canoe or kayaks.
