This deceptively large 1750s cottage is the ideal place for groups of friends or family to spend quality time together.
Close to the beautiful beaches at Bigbury and Wonwell, Willow Cottage is also perfect for walkers and golfers. It even has a sun-trap patio and spacious garden with lovely west facing views to the Norman church.
Thoughtfully renovated, Willow Cottage is a lovely 18th century, terraced, traditional Devon retreat, combining contemporary features with classic touches. Don’t be fooled by the narrow frontage, this is an incredibly roomy house. Step inside and you’ll find yourself in the cosy snug. This lovely room is the perfect place to curl up and enjoy the peace and quiet after a busy day exploring the South Hams. Next stop is the very comfortable living room, complete with two settees – one which converts to a double bed (for flexible sleeping arrangements).
Then you’ll find a lovely dining room with a table for 10 and a bookcase filled with books and games. With local Devon produce available nearby, feel inspired to cook for the rest of the group, and the well-equipped kitchen is just the place to do it. With everything you need to cook up a storm, and a large oven to make things even easier, a stay at Willow Cottage is perfect for gathering the family in the spacious dining room and tucking in. There is a good choice of board games, jigsaws and books for all ages, ensuring fun for all the family.
When it’s time to step outside, the lawned garden has plenty of space for games and picnics, and includes a picnic bench. The terrace, just off the kitchen, makes the perfect spot for barbecues, or to sit back and enjoy the lovely setting over a glass of wine or warming tea. The garden contains a charcoal barbecue and rattan dining furniture for eating in the open air on sunny days and balmy summer evenings. Relax and enjoy the birds sing.
Willow Cottage is located in the village of Kingston, just off the beaten track, yet easily accessible by road. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Kingston is a picturesque, unspoilt village, celebrated for its tranquillity and renowned ancient pub - The Dolphin - which is a short 200 metre walk away and serves great beer and home-cooked food. It’s perfect for exploring the south Devon coast, from Dartmouth to Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Plymouth, or inland for day trips discovering the wild beauty of the Dartmoor National Park. Enjoy river boat trips at Newton Ferrers or Dartmouth, take the sea tractor out to Burgh Island, or ride heritage steam trains on the Dart Valley and Torbay Steam Railways. And, if you’re a fan of the 1996 version of Sense and Sensibility, you’ll find the cottage used as Barton Cottage just 2 miles away, on the other side of the Erme. Also close by are the excellent golf courses of Bigbury, Thurlestone and Wrangaton. Beach 1½ miles. Local shop at St Anne’s Chapel 1½ miles, pub and restaurants in Ringmoor 1 mile, Modbury 3½ miles and Kingsbridge 9 miles.
