About Rosalind Spears
Johnny was born and brought up in Cape Town where his father was the famous painter Frank Spears. www.frankspearsthepainter.com. Rosalind was born in London. They love the area so much they decided to retire here and have spent the last eighteen years making their home and garden beautiful. Five years ago they were joined by a colourful peacock which has been a great attraction for the visitors. See E8807
Rosalind Spears purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Rosalind Spears chose Kingsbridge
We were so taken by the house and the area we decided to retire here - on the spur of the moment! We have loved it ever since. Why - for its beauty, peace and outstanding views.
What makes this Cottage unique
We have no near neighbours - apart from the sheep. Our two holiday cottages are full of original paintings and interesting books and are real one-offs. We are within walking distance of the Buckland tout Saints Hotel where you can get a drink or a meal in the elegant Queen Anne Manor House.

Beautiful location, lovely cottage
After a lovely welcome and a useful introduction to the cottage and grounds, we settled in quickly and knew that although of course we could enjoy the best of the South Hams area from this location, we would very much enjoy the tranquillity and location of the cottage. The woodland, pond and meadow are perfect for a stroll. We walked down into Kingsbridge from the property as well.
The bed was comfy, lovely view out onto woodland (and the peacock). We were surprised when our teenage daughter decided she and her boyfriend would after all join us early in the holiday, but with the sofa bed and dividing curtain this wasn't a problem.
Everything we could have needed was there, couldn't fault anything and we would highly recommend this as an ideally situated base to explore the area.
Don't miss Rockfish fish and chips in Dartmouth accompanied by a drink from the pub next door whilst crabbing on Bayard's Cove. The Maha Bharat in Kingsbridge is one of the best curry houses outside of Birmingham. But the beaches in the area are superb. South Milton is our favourite sandy beach, excellent for rock pooling and kayaking too.
Thank you Rosalind and Johnny for a lovely stay.
