  • "A lovely cosy cottage with a great secure garden for the dog, and a beautiful seating area to enjoy."

    Beds were very comfortable with good quality bedding and towels. Lots of pots and pans for cooking a range of meals, although the kitchen is quite compact but expected with this age of cottage. The living room was comfortable with a wood burner we used on the colder nights. There is a very good sized smart TV and plenty of information about the local area. The property is located in a very rural location. Kingston is a lovely little village with access to Womwell and Westcombe beaches and coastal path walks. It is also within easy reach of Salcombe, Bigbury on Sea and Hope Cove.

    Cottage is perfect, felt at home as soon as we arrived. Great location for coastal walks, lovely beaches and places of interest.

  • "Very well appointed cottage, with the most comfortable beds and a superb shower."

    The large garden was lovely to relax in, with great views; also secure and spacious for the dog. Ideal location for walking and also exploring the beautiful South Hams beaches. Bantham and Bigbury were our favourites! The owners 'Welcome Pack' was particularly helpful, with great recommendations for places to visit and eat out. This is also the first 'dog friendly' property we have stayed in that provides throws to protect furniture and beds from the dog, much appreciated!

    Thanks Lesley, for your lovely feedback. We're so glad you had a great week there and enjoyed our little piece of heaven. Haste ye back! Best wishes, Sian Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely and in a great position."

    It had all tools you could want Except for usable power points in the kitchen. The shower had fantastic pressure, but the hot water ran out after two showers, either due to the pressure using the hot water quickly or the heating of the water not being on long not suitable for 4 people Sadly, the garden had two dog poos in it, and there were lots of cobwebs and dead insects in the house The utility room floor paint was not sealed properly and was flaking,result was walking blue paint through the house constantly. Although felt secure in the house, the garden was another matter. The gates to the cottage had been opened overnight, and when filling the watering can, to water the pots, someone had put washing up liquid or something similar into the can, these events happened twice during our stay Could not find a food recycling bin However, we had a great holiday in a great setting Must mention the neighbours, Tom & Chris, fantastic in our hour of need when car broke down.

  • "Perfect cottage."

    Lovely large garden, ideal for my dog. All the amenities you could need. Great boot room, well equipped kitchen, comfy sofa and bed. Neighbours were really lovely and helpful in suggesting walks in the local area. Great welcome bottle of wine, overall the perfect place for a relaxing stay. East to get to Hope Cove, South Milton, Bantham and Bigbury, and ideal for coastal walks. Highly recommend this cottage for a lovely relaxing time.

  • "A beautiful cottage within walking distance of beautiful beaches."

    The garden put this property on another level. We were blessed with amazing weather so used the garden to have breakfast, drinks etc. We didn’t eat out at all because we just wanted to eat at the cottage in the beautiful garden. So peaceful with beautiful views - we have re-booked for next year. Would 100% recommend

  • "Really comfortable cottage in a fantastic “away from the crowds” location, lovely enclosed garden and only a 30 minute walk through the countryside to the beach."

    Good choice of walks from the village and the local pub was always a welcome site after a day out. We’ll definitely be back.

    Hi Kevin, Thanks for your kind feedback and I'm so pleased you had a good time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Rock - autumn and winter are also wonderful times at the cottage. We were down at the weekend and had a fabulous day out kayaking on the Erme and around Mothecombe - crystal clear waters and warm enough to swim! Best wishes, Sian Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our holiday at 3 Rock Cottages Kingston."

    The village is perfect for anyone wanting to enjoy a peaceful holiday in the countryside of the South Hams starting the day and returning home to a lovely cottage . The garden was a huge bonus for us and our dog. There are many footpaths leading to the coast , quiet bays and the nearby river estuary. The cottage is well equipped...all mod cons. Especially comfy bed. Sparklingly clean. We will definitely return one day that's for sure but for now we have new foot paths to explore.

  • "We had a lovely holiday, the cottage and garden were delightful."

    Great location, well equipped, cosy, we really liked the fresh flowers left in the house and the wine in the fridge. The garden was a real bonus especially with our dog. A few tea bags to start us off to go with the milk would have been great. Would definitely recommend.

  • "A great little cottage in a wonderful."

    location. A previous review has mentioned the lack of facilities for family dogs and the terrier next door - we did not find this to be the case, the enclosed garden was brilliant for our dogs and the dog next door was simply not an issue!

  • "I would have given it top, top marks since every thing was delightful, and comfortable and the owner very responsive to our questions."

    The keys to property fitted badly and it was very difficult to get it right to enter and exit property. Dishwasher power quirky so do read owners notes very carefully. Owners left excellent recommendations for things to do and local facilities.

  • "The cottage is well situated for a peaceful break near to the south west coastal path."

    The instructions to get to the house are clear and provide several warnings about the neighbours dog that barks every time you walk along the shared access path. We had our two dogs with us which the neighbouring dog took a disliking too and so sitting in the garden was a little stressful at times! With regard to providing constructive feedback to the owners who appear to have bought the cottage in January this year. Firstly, the cottage is well equipped but to the point of being very cluttered. I find that when there are lots of utensils/kitchen items that other cottage users don't always wash things up properly and we found this out when using an oven dish that was covered in mould! Secondly, the master bed is small. My wife and I are about 64kg each and not big people, but we didn't sleep too well as the bed is very small. With modern mattresses like the emma/simba mattress, it would be entirely possible to get a king in the main bedroom and this would improve the stay a lot. Finally, on the subject of dogs - there is a charge for dogs but it is not clear what this is for! I find paying for dogs frustrating in any case as our dogs stay in their own beds and don't sit on furniture or come upstairs. They also don't shed hair as they are hypoallergenic breeds. Where we have stayed previously, and a charge is levvied for dogs, there is usually a small 'gift' like a bag of treats or a chew or perhaps a dedicated water bowel for the dogs but there was nothing like that. Small things like this make a big difference, especially when paying over £170 a night at the start of low season (mid/late September 2021). As nice as the area and stay is, we won't be returning to rock cottages as we feel there is better value to be had elsewhere currently.

    Thank you Mr Ramsbury for your comments which we have taken on board. I'm sorry that you felt we hadn't catered for dogs, the charge which is not levied by us, and didn't find the dog treats and dry food in the utility room in case guests have forgotten theirs, as well as the dog towels, throws, Mud daddy for cleaning off your dirty friends and the dog bowl under the utility room sink. Best wishes. Property Owner

    It has a lovely garden with BBQ and garden furniture. The utility and boot rooms were very useful after a walk or trip to the beach. Linen and towels were clean and crisp. Local beach and pub recommendations were good.

  • "A perfect well equipped cottage for two people but would be incredibly cosy for anyone staying in the second bedroom."

    It is equipped with a double bed but there is only just about space for one person to walk in and very limited storage. A gorgeous garden and lovely walks in the surrounding area.

  • "The cottage was lovely but didn’t work for a family of 4 with older children."

    The kitchen is a bit too small, there wasn’t anywhere to put food other than in the fridges. It is a lovely cottage, nicely finished and furnished. The beds were very comfortable and great to have the garden when you’ve got children and dogs.
