A Devon cream tea welcomes you! Relax and unwind in this newly refurbished characterful cottage, situated in this quintessential Devon village. A short walk from Wonwell Beach and the stunning Erme Estuary, Kingston 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.

Rambling Rose Cottage, is a semi detached period cottage with its own private secluded garden, full of interesting plants and trees. There is a patio with table/chairs and a brick-built barbecue. The entrance to the cottage is via a little footpath and stable door to a utility room with a washing machine, which leads through to the beamed dining room with original (ornamental) fireplace. Steps lead down to a newly fitted kitchen with integrated dishwasher, freezer and larder fridge and a glazed front porch providing access to the enclosed private garden. The pretty living room has a wood burner and Smart TV. The stairs from here lead to two bedrooms – a double room with a king sized bed and a twin room with additional guest bed. The twin beds may be zipped together to create a super king size bed if required. These rooms share a bathroom suite, with a shower over the bath.
The second set of stairs leads from the dining room to a double (5' bed) en suite bedroom with an old, polished wide planked floor and panelling made from local shipwreck timbers.

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, within the grounds of the property. Additional parking or boat store is available at our own home a 15 minute walk away. 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.
Please note, smoking is strictly forbidden in this property and the grounds.

Lovely cottage in great location

By Steve Jones on 16-Sep-2023

Would definitely recommend. Cottage is warm and comfortable - great beds. Jerry and Liz are great hosts - the interactive walk guides you can download in the property are excellent. Parking (for one car) easy and straight outside. Some of the local lanes are a little tight but that goes with the territory. A great area to explore. Locally some great walks and beaches. Larger towns are within a reasonable drive. No shortage of good places to eat and drink. Local pub is friendly and just a short walk (can't comment on their food as it was changing hands in the time we were there and the kitchen temporarily closed as a result). Room set up is great. Up one set of stairs is the largest bedroom, 2nd bedroom and a shared bathroom. Up the set of stairs at the other end of the cottage is a further bedroom and bathroom, effectively an en-suite. To sum up, would come again and would, again, recommend.

Very cosy cottage

By Kate jennings on 18-Aug-2023

Such a great cottage, Liz and Jerry couldn’t be more helpful and were on hand a few times to sort some minor issues out. Lovely peaceful location and easy to get to local beaches etc.. Great pub recommendations from Liz as well Lovely welcome hamper Couldn’t ask for more

Family winner

By Hawthorne family on 11-Aug-2023

The cottage is just gorgeous, well equipped and housed our family of 3 adults and 3 children very comfortably. Lovely little garden, comfortable beds and the calm country sounds just made our stay. Liz really did think of everything, from all the kitchen utensils you could need to the children’s games stacked in the corner. The village is beautiful, friendly community and local pub….and the children’s playground was a big winner with my lot. Beaches are a pleasant walk away, lots to discover. A week just isn’t enough! The allocated parking space is a bonus, but do watch out for the Devon country lanes which can be quite a squeeze. We hope to be back again soon.
