About this property

A stunning 4 bedroom barn and boat store conversion with an open plan luxurious and stylish interior just a stone's throw from Waterhead Creek with easy access to the Salcombe/Kingsbridge estuary.


Yawl Barn is a wonderful example of a barn conversion with a natural stone and blue wood cladding exterior and slate roof that is striking while also remaining in keeping amid the tranquillity of its South Hams rural and waterside position. In an enviable position beside Goodshelter, a tidal ford that leads to Waterhead Creek and the Salcombe/Kingsbridge Estuary, this is an idyllic property for boating and countryside lovers alike.

The reverse level interior of Yawl Barn has been lovingly designed to create an open plan living space accessed by a stunning wide spiral staircase naturally lit with multiple French windows and skylights. A mix of stone and white walls, exposed beams, hardwood, slate floors and limestone tiling have been blended together amid the comforts of underfloor heating, modern lighting and in-built ceiling speakers to create a truly breath-taking home.

The current owners have recently refurbished the property to a very high standard throughout making this a truly lovely family home or alternatively a fabulous holiday home.

Outside the lawn area to the front of the property enjoys views of the Waterhead Creek bisected by the driveway. Double gates offer alternative private access from the road. Woodshed with power and lighting. The wrap around secluded sun terrace at the rear and the newly designed front terrace are wonderful places to dine and relax in the sun with family and friends. Yawl Barn is where the first Salcombe Yawls were originally made. Mooring may be available for a small fee from a local provider.


East Portlemouth is a popular estuary village that is served by a regular passenger ferry and water taxi service to Salcombe on the opposite side of the estuary for access to a bustling town with shops, pubs and restaurants. Salcombe is renowned for its sailing and boating facilities and is located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West, with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. School bus services run from East Portlemouth. There are also excellent pubs in the neighbouring villages of East Prawle and South Pool.

Mains water and electricity. Gas tank with automatic refill system. Biodisc sewarage treatment system.

From Kingsbridge take the A379 coastal road towards Dartmouth. After three miles turn right in the centre of Frogmore village following the signposts for South Pool and East Portlemouth. Follow this road into the village of South Pool and then keep following the signs for East Portlemouth. About a mile beyond South Pool village the road, which by now is following Waterhead Creek, crosses a stream and Yawl Barn is then the first property on the left hand side.
