  • “Ivy Cottage, Kingston, is beautifully appointed with every convenience one could wish for and then some.”

    It has off-road, gated parking for at least two cars and a completely enclosed garden with plenty of space for play. On arrival the cottage was spotless - crisp, clean towels and sheets with comfortable beds. The electric hob failed on first use but a phone call brought the caretaker who replaced it with a brand-new one in 24 hours.

    It has off-road, gated parking for at least two cars and a completely enclosed garden with plenty of space for play. On arrival the cottage was spotless - crisp, clean towels and sheets with comfortable beds. The electric hob failed on first use but a phone call brought the caretaker who replaced it with a brand-new one in 24 hours. The village is delightful with no shop but an excellent pub, "The Dolphin", which has both good food, fine beer and very obliging staff. It is child friendly with a play area adjacent to the garden tables. The village has a public playground with swings, slides, zip-line, climbing frames, etc. which the children visited regularly. Be prepared for the narrow Devon roads with lots of backing-up to passing places required. Apart from the village itself and the charming local beach - in the estuary, so sandy but only gentle waves, ideal for toddlers - there is little to be found, other than the magnificent scenery, less than 30 minutes drive away. Kingsbridge has Tesco, Morrisons and a Co-Op filling station.

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.
