    “Ivy Cottage is a beautiful home.”

    It was incredibly clean and there were plenty of extra towels. The beds were super comfortable. I loved the various window seats about the cottage. The place was perfect for us as we are an older family with teenagers so appreciated the full size beds in every room. The dining room was great for playing games after dinner. The blue antique chair in the living room was perfect for our resident video game freak. It is just a short walk to two beaches- 1.5miles to Wellwon Beach and 2miles to ...

    It was incredibly clean and there were plenty of extra towels. The beds were super comfortable. I loved the various window seats about the cottage. The place was perfect for us as we are an older family with teenagers so appreciated the full size beds in every room. The dining room was great for playing games after dinner. The blue antique chair in the living room was perfect for our resident video game freak. It is just a short walk to two beaches- 1.5miles to Wellwon Beach and 2miles to Westcombe beach. The caretaker is fantastic and came by to fix a shower drain the first day that was not draining properly. Only a few downsides- the living room sofas are very worn and saggy well past their use by date. The kitchen was somewhat dis-organised with cutlery simply placed in a drawer with no holder tray, and the plates were stacked in a high cabinet above the sink which was too high for me to get a plate down without dragging a chair over and climbing on it or asking my tall husband to get them down for me.

The property

In the pretty little village of Kingston with its good-food pub, a detached, Grade II listed, thatched cottage, light and spacious and full of charm.

Good-sized, pretty, enclosed garden with patio (table/chairs) and lawn (bench), and steps up to sheltered terrace with further lawn, table/chairs and barbecue, a lovey spot for evening sundowners and alfresco meals.

Inside, lovely 17th cent.

features like knobbly walls, beams (lowest 5'11") and the original stone staircase have been complemented and made welcoming with contemporary soft paint colours and smart furnishings.

Six uneven steps (no handrail) up to slate-floored entrance lobby (armchair).

Step up to living room with inglenook fireplace (open fire), smart TV/DVD/PVR/Blu-ray, iPod dock and arch (step) to attractive dining room with doors to patio.

Shower-room (suite).

Cosy cottage-style kitchen/breakfast room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, larder fridge, electric oven/induction hob) with granite worktops, antique pine table/chairs and stable doors to drive (tall gates to road) and garden.

Outside utility room (tumble drier, fridge-freezer, sink).

Door (5'10" lintel) from living room to steep spiral stairs (central vertical handrail, narrow treads, care needed; stairgate) winding up to three large bedrooms - two double (6' beds), and a pretty twin.

Bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Arrival after 4pm.

Comfortable and full of character and in a great spot with a welcoming pub and choice of lovely sandy beaches nearby. Kingston: remarkably off-the-beaten-track little village (good pub, church) with lots of pretty houses, a mile from the River Erme’s beautiful wooded estuary and good sandy Wonwell beach (bodyboarding, paddle boarding, kayaking).

St Ann’s Chapel (PO/shop), 1 mile.

More fine sandy beaches and golf at Bigbury-on-Sea/Burgh Island, 4 miles; for shops, pretty Modbury, 3½ miles.
