The coastal light simply floods into this recently converted 19th-century former brewery, located at the very top of the Salcombe estuary in south Devon. There’s space for four across the two modern, pared-back double rooms, plus two children will be happily ensconced in the colourful mezzanine floor. It is a delightful mix of airy spaces and sleek design. At the heart of the private house rental is the purpose-built courtyard, accessed through tall French windows that can be pulled right back to create an amazing indoor-outdoor space that’s perfect for entertaining. Here, you can serve up a long summer lunch, cooked in the modern kitchen that’s equipped with an electric Neff oven, gas hob and dishwasher. Heading to the beach? The Malthouse is just a 10-minute drive from the region’s best surfing beach, Bantham, plus family-friendly Bigbury and wilder Mothecombe. There’s lots to see and do in Kingsbridge – pick up pasties from Duke Street Deli or kit out your home with homewares from the chic General Store.
