Make a holiday cottage in Kingston your home away from home

Kingston is a scattered village in Devon with a permanent population of just 400. The village is located one mile from Wonell and three miles from the historic market town of Modbury, which is home to good selection of local shops, pubs and eateries. Most holidaymakers make good use of the excellent and beautiful coastal footpath as a means of exercise and sightseeing. The surrounding area also offers plenty of activities for families. HomeAway have a superb choice of Kingston holiday cottages available to suit groups and families of all sizes.

Holiday cottages in Kingston are made up of a selection of quaint buildings and converted barns. They have all been refurbished to the highest standards of comfort with all the expected amenities and furnishings. Many Kingston holiday homes have a lawn, garden, BBQ area, terrace, and internet access, and a select number advertise as pet friendly. Weekly rates start from just £315 per week, which is slightly lower than the nearby holiday rentals in Paignton.

Things to do

-Beaches: Wonnell Beach is two miles from holiday cottages in Kingston and comprises an unusual combination of grey sand, blue waters and green vegetation. This beach is popular for dog walking as it is pet friendly. Most visitors to Kingston also make use of nearby Bigbury-on-Sea Beach, which is less than five miles away. Bigbury is a popular beach for families with young children as it boasts shallow and calm waters, and is near to a variety of restaurants and cafés.

-Family activities: The Woodlands Adventure Park at Blackawton is a fun way to let little ones (and big kids!) expel some of that pent-up energy. Family admission includes access to all indoor and outdoor activities, the falconry centre, zoo and fun farm. At 16 miles away, the Buckfast Butterflies & Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary is an easy drive from holiday homes in Kingston. The sanctuary provides a fascinating and educational look at how otters live and interact with their natural environment.

-Outdoor attractions: In addition to heading to the beach, walking or cycling, bird watching is a popular outdoor activity in and around Kingston. A lot of visitors stop by King’s Estuary, which is nine miles away, to view all kinds of birds, including buzzards, wood warblers, redstarts and pied flycatchers.

-Food and drink: Kingston is surrounded by villages with excellent eateries and pubs. The Dolphin Inn in Kingston serves excellent pub food and friendly banter with the drinks. Alternatively, enjoy an informal Friday curry dinner and real ale at the Pilchard Inn on Bergh Island, which has been in service for more than 700 years. For some charming harbour city lights and nightlife, head to Plymouth.

Added to this we had amazing blue skies and were able to swim and surf daily with grandparents looking on. The various beaches on the doorstep as well as bantham and bigbury are great for walks and watersports . We could not have asked for more ...

Planning going back next year for longer.
