The name alone helps to describe the peaceful location of this most charming detached cottage standing in nearly three quarters of an acre having direct frontage of 220 feet to Waterhead Creek as may be viewed from the side windows. This whole area of unspoilt countryside around the creeks of the Kingsbridge Estuary is a mix of peace and natural beauty. The front of the cottage is so traditional and to enter is a step into the past with small living rooms and a later extension to the rear setting the imagination alive to create a stunning home possibly combining the traditional and contemporary looking out into the creek.

Goodshelter Cottage is of traditional stone construction under a newly slate roof with a later rear timber frame and clad extension under a metal roof. The garden and land slopes from the cottage to the creek to which there is a 220 feet frontage with vehicular access and parking off the adjoining road.
