About the property

3 Bedroom Cottage in Chillington near Kingsbridge South Devon. Ideally located for the whole South Hams area.

Rockside is beautifully presented and is ideally located for a perfect self-catering family holiday with the stunning South Devon coastline of Start Bay and the South West Coastal Path which has some lovely coastal walks nearby. The cottage has three delightful bedrooms, a fitted kitchen and bathroom and lounge area with open fireplace. Chillington village lies between the historic naval port of Dartmouth and the pretty market town of Kingsbridge and has a thriving local community, with a village inn - just 50 metres away - a Post Office and village shop. The golden beach at Blackpool Sands is a short drive away, as are a host of other south coast beaches, suitable for families and surfers alike. The beautiful, white sandy beaches at Salcombe, Thurlestone and Bigbury are within 25 minutes drive of the property.

About david kuschel

My wife and I are semi retired with 3 grown up children and 4 grandchildren.

david kuschel purchased this cottage in 2002

Why david kuschel chose South Hams

We chose Rockside cottage because we had been enjoying happy family holidays in the South Hams area for over 30 years.

The cottage is in a very good position being a village location yet close enough to Dartmouth, Salcombe and Kingsbridge.
