Area Details


Kingston is a pretty village surrounded by working farms and an abundance of country walks and conservation areas. Kingston lies between the town of Modbury and Bigbury-On Sea, both 20-minutes in the car. The village is 1 mile from the mouth of the River Erme. The village also lies between the Dartmoor National Park and the South Devon Coastline and is a great escape if you are looking for a more rural escape. There is a very strong sense of community here and you can often find eggs for sale on the roadside, the village offers a pub, the Dolphin Inn, which has a back garden and traditional home-cooked food. The village also boasts a village hall and a recently refurbished adventure playground. Choose from a variety of coastal walks taking in the dramatic cliffs and stunning scenery, spot the local wildlife as you pass the conservation areas. Visit the weekly market in the village hall or if you fancy exploring the nearest beach then Wonwell Beach can be accessed by car or on foot. At low tide the beach has a large expanse of sand and is great for sunbathing, swimming and building sandcastles, the beach is dog friendly all year round. Water sports can often be picked up from the River and surfing is available at Bigbury beach.
