Why Liz & Jerry Barnes chose Kingsbridge
Kingston is a beautiful, quaint village. The beaches and coastline are superb. Whilst the cottage is dog friendly, should you visit, you would not know a dog had been there. the cottage is really clean, with good quality bedding. The cottage is a home from home, with everything you need. We have regular returning guests who frequently tell us

Lovely traditional and well equpped cottage. Beautiful and quiet location.
My wife and I have just had a brilliant week's stay at this cottage. The Dolphin pub is only a couple of hundred yards away - Craig is the landlord and head chef at the same time - helpful staff - food good - look out for his monthly international dining night!. Westcombe beach is a 2 mile walk down the road/bridleway/track behind the cottage but well worth it - look out for the local basket maker who sells by the track towards the bottom when he tends his willow patch on the left. The cottage itself is very well equipped including double oven, W/M , D/W, wood burner, hair drier and a welcome bottle of wine. Liz the owner lives in the village and was very approachable and helpful. No shops in the village - we did all ours in the Modbury Co-op. A corner shop in St Anne's Chapel we didn't get to. Modbury, 4 mile drive each way, has a number of good places to eat - the Nepalese will deliver to the cottage - and a few independent shops to browse through. Kingsbridge well worth a day out with river cruises available. For the walker there is a good circular walk from the cottage with longer and shorter options (5-7miles) taking in both Wormwell (you can drive here down a narrow lane but there is limited on road parking at the end) and Westcombe beaches. The steepest part is the coastal path north out of Westcombe beach which can be avoided by doing the walk anti clockwise. This time of year while walking I dined on fresh blackberries and elderberries - lots of Sloe for picking. We had a great time and hope to make a return visit in the future. Note the stairs are very cottagy i.e. tight bend at the bottom, deep and steep.
Thank you for taking the time to review out cottage. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seing you again.
Very Enjoyable Stay
Very enjoyable stay at Rock Cottage. It had everything we needed and was very homely. Enjoyed several visits to the Dolphin Pub that was so close to the cottage. The food was excellent and staff very friendly. Also great play park nearby.
Great Devons in this cottage.
Excellently maintained and equipped property in a quiet but beautiful area. Would thoroughly recommend.
Thank you for your review.
We hope to see you again sometime.
Lovely comfortable and clean cottage
We had a wonderful 10 days at No 1 Rock Cottage. It is far larger than I was expecting with a separate dining room off the Kitchen and Sitting Room downstairs. Nice and close to the pub and the park! The walk to the beach can be confusing, so make sure you read the guest book before you set off for instructions on how to find the footpath! Good location in terms of reaching Salcombe and surrounding beaches, but everywhere is a drive along narrow roads. Parking for the cottage is on the street . Nearest shop is about a 10 min drive away.
Fabulous cottage, had everything in that we needed.
Fantastic location, great village - loved everything about this cottage.
Lovely holiday cottage in great location
My husband and I had not visited this part of Devon before. So, we decided it would be nice to do a trip there for my birthday. We were very pleased when we were able to book Rock Cottage in Kingston with Jerry & Liz and were not disappointed at all. The cottage is all you could wish for and the village is a beautiful unspoilt place to be. Especially as the Dolphin Inn is just a stone’s throw away, serving local beer and excellent food.
The locality of the cottage is perfect for exploring a variety of interesting places which are very close by. The river Erme, and its beautiful walks are just down the road as are some quiet beautiful beaches. The lovely town of Kingsbridge is just a short drive away and just a bit further on is the historic town of Salcombe.
You could not ask for a better place to stay than 1 Rock Cottage. It is beautifully decorated and laid out, exceptionally clean and comfortable. Jerry & Liz were kind enough to supply us with the initial needs such as cleaning supplies, a pint of milk, some biscuits and the essential bottle of wine!
It would have been nice if only the sun had his hat on just a bit more often but it was September after all and the cosy Rock Cottage made up for it.
Many thanks to our hosts for making my birthday break in Kingston a good one :-)
