    The Cracknells, West Sussex

    “If you want a great place to base yourself to explore the delights of the South Hams then you can't do much better than to stay at Lower Great Torr in Kingston.”

    Situated right in the centre of some of the most impressive coast line and countryside in South Devon it's a walkers paradise right from the door step. The coastal path walks East to Burgh Island and West to Newton Ferrers are stunning and we enjoyed watching the seals pop up along the shore. It's not surprising that this coast line has been used as a backdrop for so many Agatha Christie and period drama films. With numerous secluded coves in between and sandy beaches close by there are plenty ...

    Situated right in the centre of some of the most impressive coast line and countryside in South Devon it's a walkers paradise right from the door step. The coastal path walks East to Burgh Island and West to Newton Ferrers are stunning and we enjoyed watching the seals pop up along the shore. It's not surprising that this coast line has been used as a backdrop for so many Agatha Christie and period drama films. With numerous secluded coves in between and sandy beaches close by there are plenty of idyllic spots to take it easy and relax. We really enjoyed paddling across the Erme Estuary at low tide from Wonwell Beach to Mothecome Beach, a really beautiful setting and ideal spot for picnics and warmer weather swimming. The Farmhouse is really welcoming and comfortable, and benefits from being new to holiday letting. It is clean, fresh, cosy and well equipped. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax with a really efficient wood burner offering winter cheer. The beds are of good size and really comfortable. The WiFi works well for those that need to stay connected. There are lots of good eating places close by, pubs and shack style fresh fish restaurants. Our favourite pub is the Dolphin, a few minutes walk from the farmhouse in the centre of the village. It is a traditional pub that has stood the test of time offering great honest food at sensible tariffs and good local ales to match. We look forward to returning sometime soon.

About the location

Kingston

Kingston is a very pretty Devon village, well off the beaten track in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Popular with walkers, the South West Coast Path from Kingston encompasses some of South Devon’s most stunning coastline, whilst Dartmoor National Park is also within driving distance. Less than one mile from the village is the River Erme’s wooded estuary and beautiful unspoilt, sandy Wonwell beach. The popular 16th century village pub, The Dolphin, is within 5 minutes’ walk, serving real ale and home-cooked meals using local produce. Kingston is just 4 miles from the Georgian town of Modbury and 15-20 minutes’ drive from the market town of Kingsbridge. The city of Plymouth, with attractions including The National Marine Aquarium and Plymouth Hoe, plus the bars and restaurants of waterfront areas including The Barbican, is 20 or so miles away. For sports enthusiasts there is sailing in Salcombe (15 miles), surfing off Bantham beach, or challenging coastal golf at nearby Bigbury and Thurlestone golf courses.
