  • "Another lovely week at the Coach House which is a very comfortable property, with many thoughtful extra touches provided and in a peaceful location."

    It was not an issue for me, but I did notice a lot of cobwebs around the place and the windows could also have done with a clean. Otherwise it was spotless. Regrettably I don't think I will be returning, as this time I found the steps up from the road difficult to negotiate.

    Dear Margaret, thank you so much for your feedback and I do apologise for the windows needing a bit of a clean. We will miss welcoming you to The Coach House in the future, but thank you for all your past visits. Property Owner

  • "The Coach House in Kingston is a lovely, quaint period property in a beautiful village location."

    Despite the size of the property, it is quite tiny, the space is very well planned and equipped. We loved the features such as the wood burning stove, the lovely little garden and terrace (a real sun trap), washing machine, an excellent cooker and very good quality crockery and saucepans etc and the library of books. Unfortunately there is a smell of damp downstairs which could do with some attention. The property is also quite dark and could really benefit from some updating. But it was spotlessly clean and for a few nights stay, absolutely fine. Otherwise, the property is in an idyllic location - the village of Kingston is beautiful and very peaceful, in gorgeous countryside and we found some stunning beaches nearby. There is also a fabulous pub in the village which serves exceptionally good home cooked food. Overall, considering the property’s location and value for money, this is a lovely little bolthole and left us feeling relaxed and refreshed after a four night stay. Thank you!

  • "We appreciated the nice touches in the cottage which made it feel a pleasure to be there."

    Perfect location to explore the beautiful South Hams area with.

  • "The cottage is located in a lovely village with access to a pub and walks to the beach."

    The cottage was clean and the garden had lovely views out into the field. The listing states the accommodation is on reverse level which was fine until we realised this meant your head is meters from every passing vehicle. If you’re a good sleeper this should be fine but unfortunately the noise was too much for us and is something we think others should be aware of as we’ve returned from our holiday in need of a good nights sleep.

  • "The village of Kingston is ideal for a "get away from it all" holiday."

    There are beautiful countryside and coastal walks from the doorstep and it is quiet and peaceful compared to the tourist towns of the South Hams. It was me and my dog, and I appreciated the total privacy of the Coach House, especially the garden, but with the reassurance of knowing the owner was just down the road. My dog enjoyed communing with the cows over the garden hedge! The Coach House is a beautifully maintained and well equipped property, and I appreciated the thoughtful touches like towels for my dog and a really comfy bed with quality bedding. I wish I had booked another week, and hope to stay again in the future.

  • "A very nice property, immaculately clean."

    However, there are two important matters not identified in the property details: 1. The very steep steps that access the property, which become slippery when wet - quite unsuitable for anyone with a disability 2. The 'reverse level' (bedroom downstairs) property is advertised as pet-friendly BUT the owners instructions state pets must NOT be allowed downstairs at any time - we would not have booked if the website had stated that fact.

  • "We were extremely disappointed with Sykes stance on refunds during the COVID crisis."

    As we wanted to visit the area and the cottage rebooked when possible however the website price for the chosen few days was less than we were charged and originally paid We were not offered a refund of the difference which again is disappointing
