Relax and unwind in these newly refurbished characterful cottages, situated in a quintessential Devon village. Kingston, just a short walk from Wonwell Beach and the stunning Erme Estuary, is a sought after village in the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is a thriving community with a pub, church, recreation park and village hall, all within walking distance of the cottage. The neighbouring village of Ringmore (a 35 minute walk) has the Journey's End Inn, an award winning pub, offering real ale and excellent food.

Nearby is the magnificent South West coastline, offering fine coastal walks, beaches and coves, with sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers. 18 hole golf courses are available at Thurlestone and Bigbury, and Dartmoor National Park is within easy reach to the North. Indoor and outdoor tennis is available at the local towns of Ivybridge and Kingsbridge with water sports facilities and lessons at Kingsbridge, Bigbury on Sea, Salcombe and Bantham, all within a 20 minute drive. .

The picturesque Georgian town of Modbury is only 3 miles away. Some two hundred years ago it was extremely prosperous being the local market town and a centre for the wool trade. Today there is a good range of local shops including a butcher, baker, grocers, hardware store, chemist, delicatessen and a number of gift and antique shops. The larger town of Kingsbridge, offering a greater and wider range of recreation and commercial facilities, is approximately 8 miles away.

Each cottage has its own entrance and private secluded garden with dining areas. Clematis has both a front and rear garden. The front garden has access along the side it, for guests in Rambling Rose to access their private garden. Located in a conservation area, the gardens are full of interesting plants and trees with several seating areas. Steeped in history, the cottages were originally a potters and fisherman’s cottages and include Kingston’s last remaining donkey house! (No donkey now!). Booked as a whole, the two cottages will sleep 11, linking the two through a secure lockable secret door.

Originally a potter’s cottage, Clematis, has front and back doors from the gardens. The rear door opens into a utility room with storage, a washing machine and tumble drier. The cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin lead off this room. A door from the utility leads to the an attractive dual aspect, fully equipped kitchen and dining area which leads directly onto the terrace. Next door is a large sitting room with an open fire. On the first floor is an en-suite bedroom with a super king size bed or twin beds if required. Next door to this is a double bedroom (king sized bed) also en-suite.

Quality linen, towels, electricity and heating costs are included, together with one nights supply of logs. Eco friendly cleaning products are provided for your use at the cottage, including dishwasher tablets. Tesco, Sainsbury and Waitrose deliver groceries to the cottage. Please feel free to arrange a delivery from 11am on the day of your arrival but please let me know in advance and I will arrange for frozen and fresh products to be put away for you. Private catering, baby sitting and dog walking is also available by arrangement. The cottage has a good broadband internet connection and private parking off the public road, within the grounds of the property. Additional parking or boat store is available at our own home a 15 minute walk away. Please note, smoking is strictly forbitten in this property and the grounds. Lockable storage is available for bikes and beach equipment. Due to the rambling nature of the cottages and steep stairs, the property is not suitable for very young children or people with mobility limitations. Dogs are welcome by arrangement at £25 per dog per stay. The area is incredibly dog friendly with our local beaches and pubs welcoming dogs throughout the year. Clematis cottage is very old and some of the doorways are small - just a note of caution for taller guests!
Check in time is from 4.30pm, but you are welcome to drop off luggage from 11am and ask if an earlier check in time is possible. Check out time is by 11.00am prompt please.
Whilst a minimum 7 night stay is stated, shorter breaks are accepted out of peak season on a pro rata basis. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

An amazing cottage in a stunning location!

By Rebecca Jones on 20-Aug-2021

We loved our stay here at Clematis Cottage! It's such a beautiful cottage situated in the little village of Kingston, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Our stay was delightful and the cottage had great facilities, was very comfy, spotlessly clean and welcoming. We had a lovely holiday here in May, exploring the local areas and walks. Excellent base for travelling around to places such as Kingsbridge, Bigbury on Sea and Salcombe. Would love to visit here again in the future and explore more of the area. The owners were extremely friendly and professional and made us feel very welcome. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

An absolute gem

By Steph & Ed on 25-Jun-2021

We had the most wonderful stay at Clematis cottage, if you’re after beautiful walks, lovely pubs and a rural retreat, this is your cottage! From the minute we stepped inside the cottage we knew we’d landed on our feet. From treats for the dogs to treats for us we were beaming! Definitely head to the coastal path for breathtaking views. Looking forward to our next visit!

Great Holiday Cottage

By Julie & Roy Yardley on 11-Jun-2021

We had a lovely holiday at Clematis Cottage . All covid procedures were carried out during the period of our stay . The cottage was charming and had character. It had all you could need for a comfortable stay. It had a well equipped spacious modern kitchen and the separate laundry room was really useful. The cottage had quality furnishings with welcoming touches. The beds were comfortable with clean fresh linen . The dog enjoyed the use of the enclosed garden which was abundant with lovely shrubs & flowers. Ideal for relaxing with a book and a cup of tea. Great location and plenty of amenities close by. We had a short drive and walk to the local beaches . We are looking forward to returning again in the near future.
