Why Move to Kingsbridge
If you are looking at relocating to a lively but traditional market town within the borders of the beautiful county of Devon, Kingsbridge could be the place to end your search.
Situated at the northern end of the pretty Kingsbridge Estuary, it is the third largest settlement in an area of Devon called the South Hams which is known for its mild climate.
Life here is safe, scenic, and comfortably sedate. A long history makes it not just an attractive location boasting cobbled streets, quaint passages, and alleys, but it is also an interesting one.
The town is named after an ancient bridge that was erected to link two royal estates – Alvington and Chillington, and by 1219 was a market town. Modern Kingsbridge has good connections by road and is linked to Plymouth and Dartmouth by the A379 road, and to Salcombe and Totnes by the A381. There is no railway station in operation, Totnes station is the closest 11 miles away.
Shopping is a delight with Kingsbridge’s bustling Fore Street providing an eclectic, yet an attractive mix of shopfronts, cafes, and pubs. There is a large Tesco Superstore that provides residents with all the main necessities. Entertainment opportunities abound.
If you enjoy nature, the South Devon AONB surrounds the town. Whilst Bowcombe Creek and the Knightsbridge Estuary, the wonderful beaches, and popular seaside towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth provide a host of fun water-based activities.
There is no getting away from the fact that living in Kingsbridge means you cannot help but immerse yourself into the slower pace of life only Devon is able to give in bucket loads.
Schools & Education
No matter where you are considering relocating to, uppermost in your mind if you are moving with children is going to be local schools.
Are they performing well? Is there a good choice? and will I be able to secure a place for my child? In Kingsbridge all these factors are covered.
For all vital school information visit Devon County Council’s informative website here.
There are several well-rated schools for younger children. Among the most popular is Charleton Church of England Academy and West Alvington Church of England Academy.

Since becoming an academy, the college has benefited from over £3 million of capital funding enabling extensive expansion and development of its education provision and facilities.
The closest independent school is located in Ivybridge around 10 miles from the town. A relatively new school that opened in 2020, Colours Academy provides quality private education to around 50 11–18-year-old students.
