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.

Excellent cottage in great location
Kingston is a great location for exploring South Devon. The cottage is very charming and has all the mod cons needed to make your stay enjoyable. We brought our dog with us and Liz had arranged a crate for the dog along with a goody bag. The Dolphin Pub, a few steps from the cottage serves very good food. Wondell Beach and Westcombe Beach are within walking distance and a dog friendly. All in all, our week in the cottage was one of our best UK holidays and will definitely be returning.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review.
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 :-)

Lovely cottage in a beautiful spot
Rock Cottage is a clean, well equipped, quiet and comfortable holiday cottage. It was a great base for our family holiday. A good playground and the Dolphin Inn are only 2 mins walk away. Wonwell beach is beautiful and less than 45 mins walk (or a few mins in the car). The owners (Liz and Jerry) were very responsive and helpful. The only thing some people may want to consider is that the stairs are steep and uneven. There is a stair gate to protect toddlers but those who are unsteady on their feet may find them challenging. I would be very happy to return to Rock Cottage.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. We look forward to seeing you again.

Beautiful, well equipped country cottage
We had a wonderful welcome from the owners of Rock Cottage, the property was exceptionally clean and well cared for. All the equipment was of a high standard and the cottage was beautifully furnished. I would recommend this cottage to anyone seeking a relaxing and peaceful time in South Devon. The Oyster Shack as recommended by Tom Parker Bowles is close by - ENJOY!!.
3 Rock Cottages was very clean, well equipped and well presented holiday accommodation. The bed was particularly comfortable and the bedroom was roomy for a cottage. The utility room provided excellent laundry facilities and had ample storage room. The views from the enclosed and very safe garden were lovely. The owners were very approachable and easy to contact and made us very welcome. The Dolphin is a small and friendly local with a good size garden for sunny days, but you should book a table rather than assume that you will get one! Kinston is a small and pretty village with tight lanes around, including the one to Wonwell beach, which is stunning and worth a visit, but go early to park.
Fantastic Spring Break
The property had everything we needed for an excellent holiday, location was perfect allowing many different dog walking options without the need of a car. Parking was on the road but was not a problem. Liz was very focused on ensuring we enjoyed our holiday. We will certainly return as we didnt quite manage to visit all the pubs that were recommended in the cottage information bulletin.
