    The instructions to get to the house are clear and provide several warnings about the neighbours dog that barks every time you walk along the shared access path. We had our two dogs with us which the neighbouring dog took a disliking too and so sitting in the garden was a little stressful at times! With regard to providing constructive feedback to the owners who appear to have bought the cottage in January this year. Firstly, the cottage is well equipped but to the point of being very cluttered. I find that when there are lots of utensils/kitchen items that other cottage users don't always wash things up properly and we found this out when using an oven dish that was covered in mould! Secondly, the master bed is small. My wife and I are about 64kg each and not big people, but we didn't sleep too well as the bed is very small. With modern mattresses like the emma/simba mattress, it would be entirely possible to get a king in the main bedroom and this would improve the stay a lot. Finally, on the subject of dogs - there is a charge for dogs but it is not clear what this is for! I find paying for dogs frustrating in any case as our dogs stay in their own beds and don't sit on furniture or come upstairs. They also don't shed hair as they are hypoallergenic breeds. Where we have stayed previously, and a charge is levvied for dogs, there is usually a small 'gift' like a bag of treats or a chew or perhaps a dedicated water bowel for the dogs but there was nothing like that. Small things like this make a big difference, especially when paying over £170 a night at the start of low season (mid/late September 2021). As nice as the area and stay is, we won't be returning to rock cottages as we feel there is better value to be had elsewhere currently.

The property

St Ann's Chapel 2.1 miles.

Encompassed by gorgeous countryside and a short drive to the coast, 3 Rock Cottages offers a home-from-home for you and your loved ones in the South Hams district of Devon.

Boasting characterful charm and a homely feel, this terraced cottage is the perfect choice for a family trip to Devon, resting in the village of Kingston, near to St Ann's Chapel.

Step in through the door after a country walk and find plenty of space in the entrance for your wet coats and wellies, with the property home to a utility room containing a washing machine for any sandy or muddy clothes!

Feel right at home in the sitting room as the woodburning stove warms you, resting within the feature stone wall fireplace, and the TV entertains while you relax on the sofa.

Gather in the pretty dining room for quality time together tucking into a home-cooked meal prepared in the charming kitchen; discover all the appliances you need for rustling up your favourite dishes in this bright and airy space, including an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge and dishwasher.

Settle down in the evening within one of the lovely double bedrooms, providing the ideal set up for two couples or a small family as the cottage offers a cot and a highchair.

Spend sunny days in the enclosed rear garden, great for letting your canine companions stretch their legs safely and letting little ones play on the lawn before heading out on your adventures for the day.

The peaceful and calm setting of Kingston is superb for a relaxed rural break, with the feeling of being secluded and remote near to the sea, whilst within easy reach of further amenities and villages.

The village itself is home to a pub, The Dolphin Inn, whilst the nearest shop can be found in St Ann's Chapel and the award-winning Journey's End Inn is a pleasant walk away, great for a rewarding treat after a coastal jaunt.

The nearby beaches of Wonwell and Westcombe are both dog-friendly and can be reached via a pleasant walk, whilst Bigbury-on-Sea is a centre for exciting watersports including kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing with local hire shops providing equipment and tuition.

While at this bustling seaside hotspot take a walk along the causeway at low tide to Burgh Island to admire the wonderful views of the Devon coast and seascapes, with the village's beloved 'sea tractor' bringing you to and from the island at high tide.

The South West Coast Path offers miles of path to walk whilst there are also plenty of places to walk inland within the South Devon AONB, there's plenty of choice!

Take a scenic drive over to Salcombe and Kingsbridge to discover more fabulous places, before returning to the comfort of 3 Rock Cottages, your ideal base for South Hams adventures.

About the location

ST ANN'S CHAPEL

Kingsbridge 6 miles; Salcombe 40 miles.

St Ann’s Chapel is a small hamlet situated in the South Hams area of Devon, England, between the towns of Modbury and Kingsbridge. Within this small hamlet, you will find a good local shop and The Pickwick Inn, a charming pub serving food. Less than three miles away is Bigbury on Sea a village with a large sandy beach (surf school, cafe) and stretching to Burgh Island (famous art deco hotel, setting for Agatha Christie novels). Good golf course at Bigbury. The South West Coast Path is worth exploring as is the real ale pub in the nearby coastal village of Ringmore. A little further afield the traditional market town of Kingsbridge sits at the head of the many creeked Kingsbridge Estuary (boat trips), and plays host to a number of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and antique shops. Further afield sensational Salcombe at the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary with its many cove beaches and boutique shops is worth a visit. St Ann’s Chapel is a picturesque hamlet, and a perfect base for exploring this diverse and interesting area.

Please note there is a £25 per dog per week charge
