    “Ivy Cottage is a beautiful home.”

    It was incredibly clean and there were plenty of extra towels. The beds were super comfortable. I loved the various window seats about the cottage. The place was perfect for us as we are an older family with teenagers so appreciated the full size beds in every room. The dining room was great for playing games after dinner. The blue antique chair in the living room was perfect for our resident video game freak. It is just a short walk to two beaches- 1.5miles to Wellwon Beach and 2miles to ...

    It was incredibly clean and there were plenty of extra towels. The beds were super comfortable. I loved the various window seats about the cottage. The place was perfect for us as we are an older family with teenagers so appreciated the full size beds in every room. The dining room was great for playing games after dinner. The blue antique chair in the living room was perfect for our resident video game freak. It is just a short walk to two beaches- 1.5miles to Wellwon Beach and 2miles to Westcombe beach. The caretaker is fantastic and came by to fix a shower drain the first day that was not draining properly. Only a few downsides- the living room sofas are very worn and saggy well past their use by date. The kitchen was somewhat dis-organised with cutlery simply placed in a drawer with no holder tray, and the plates were stacked in a high cabinet above the sink which was too high for me to get a plate down without dragging a chair over and climbing on it or asking my tall husband to get them down for me.

The property

In the heart of Kingston is this thatched detached Grade II listed cottage.

Full of character and charm, yet with plenty of space, it is welcoming family accommodation in a pretty village.

Head up the ancient uneven steps into the entrance hall, and from here up another step into the sitting room, full of history with beams, knobbly walls and an open fire in the inglenook fireplace, all complemented by a modern smart TV and iPod dock.

An arch leads through to the dining room where you can open doors to the patio on a sunny day.

The kitchen doubles as a breakfast room in true country house style with its old pine table and stable doors to the garden.

Tread where centuries of feet have worn the steep spiral stairs when you wend your way up to bed in the three spacious bedrooms under the cosy eaves.

Outside, eat alfresco on the patio or stretch out in the sun on the lawn, and you also have a higher terrace and lawn with outdoor furniture for enjoying evening drinks and barbecues.

If you don't want to cook, stroll out to the village inn with its tempting menu.

This is great country for walking along the River Erme estuary or getting on the water at Wonwell beach for bodyboarding, kayaking and paddleboarding.

Bigbury on Sea has a huge and splendid sandy beach for surfing and you can walk across to Burgh Island at low tide.

Ivy Cottage is a wonderful place, full of history and interesting features, with great beaches and a good pub nearby.
