    Mr Clarke

    “Kingston is a great little village with a warm heart - we had a great reception from everyone we met whether in the pub, the church, on the beach or just passing in the road, and made a superb venue to spend a week with the family at Christmas.”

    Just a general comment about this and other holiday rents we have had from Helpful Holidays - there are never enough of the basics: drying-up cloths, washing-up materials, bin bags etc. Some simple basic instructions on how to 'get to started' and operate the TV & hi-fi etc would be helpful. We had a tech-geek with us and even he couldn't get everything to work and was baffled by why we had three remote controls.

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.
