A Devon cream tea welcomes you! Relax and unwind in this newly refurbished characterful cottage, situated in this 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, Dartmouth, Totnes 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.

he cottage has its own entrance and private front and rear garden. Located in a conservation area, the gardens are full of interesting plants and trees with several seating areas. Steeped in history, the cottage was originally a potters and fisherman’s cottages and include Kingston’s last remaining donkey house! (No donkey now!).

Originally a potter’s cottage, Clematis, has front and back doors from the gardens. The front garden has a terrace with table and chairs and the rear garden has a picnic table and bbq. 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 room 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 and exposed beams. On the first floor are two en-suite bedrooms, one with a super king size bed (or twin beds if required), the other is a double bedroom (king sized bed) also en-suite. Both rooms have views over the garden and the village.

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 forbidden in this property and the grounds. Lockable storage is available for bikes and beach equipment.
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!

A peaceful retreat

By Margaret Easterby on 12-May-2024

A really delightful cottage, Warm, comfortable and cosy. Enjoyed a real fire on a cooler evening. Spacious, comfortable bedrooms, plenty of hot water,in modern bathrooms. A very relaxing week. Plenty to see and do around, lovely walks too.

A glorious cottage in a lovely setting

By Myles Sutherland on 26-Apr-2024

My wife and I, and our two dogs, enjoyed a superb week's stay at this cottage. It is beautifully presented inside and out, with generous-sized rooms. The beds are very comfortable, and the cottage has everything needed. The village is a great place for a quiet, away-from-it-all stay, to relax and recharge. The surrounding area has plenty to offer, especially the beaches and walks. Happy to recommend this cottage to anyone. The owners are lovely, friendly people and most helpful when asked.

Clematis Cottage in Kingston South Devon

By Helen on 19-Apr-2024

We have stayed at Clematis cottage twice, November 2023 and April 2024. There is a warm and homely feel to the cottage, which is very well equipped with two double bedrooms both with en-suites, cozy sitting room with a working fireplace which we lit on both occasions and a well laid out kitchen and dining area. The hostess visited us on arrival and departure to ensure that we were settled. The cottage is also pet friendly. Kingston is a special village with a vibrant and friendly community. This is a cottage you definitely wish to stay and never want to leave, highly recommend.
