  • “Overall, the cottage is lovely, with high-end towels and bedding and a well equipped kitchen.”


    The cleanliness is questionable. Corners had visible dirt, many light fixtures had dust webs and there was food on the first pot I removed from the cupboard. The dryer had enough lint to knit a jumper. The sofa really let's this place down. I'd expect that sofa in a student house. The owner really needs to replace it. It's unacceptable in a cottage at this price level. I did inform the "caretaker" of the lack of cleanliness on the second day, and whilst my text was read, I never received a reply. The superking beds are fantastic. I do recommend this place, but the cleanliness and sofa need improvement.

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.
