Cosy Traditional Character Cottage



Updated: 15-Oct-2016
Cottage in Chillington Nr. Kingsbridge, South Devon , England - One And A Half Miles From Beach And Nature Reserve

Rockside is beautifully presented and is ideally located for a perfect self-catering family holiday with the stunning South Devon coastline of Start Bay and the South West Coastal Path which has some lovely coastal walks nearby. The cottage has three delightful bedrooms, a fitted kitchen and bathroom and lounge area with open fireplace. Chillington village lies between the historic naval port of Dartmouth and the pretty market town of Kingsbridge and has a thriving local community, with a village inn - just 50 metres away - a Post Office and village shop. The golden beach at Blackpool Sands is a short drive away, as are a host of other south coast beaches, suitable for families and surfers alike. The beautiful, white sandy beaches at Salcombe, Thurlestone and Bigbury are within 25 minutes drive of the property.

Genuinely cannot wait to book for next time year. An absolutely beautiful place to retreat to. Rockside has everything you need and it's a home away from home

From the Owner

We chose Rockside cottage because we had been enjoying happy family holidays in the South Hams area for over 30 years. The cottage is in a very good position being a village location yet close enough to Dartmouth, Salcombe and Kingsbridge.

Activity and Interests


Torcross and Slapton shingle beaches are a 10 minute drive away.

There are sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands towards Dartmouth, about 15 minute drive away. The beautiful, white sandy beaches at Salcombe, Thurlestone and Bigbury are within 25 minutes drive of the property.


Dartmouth and Salcombe are a 25 minute drive away and Kingsbridge is a 15 minute drive away.

Further Details:

There is a local shop and post office in Chillington just a 5 minute walk from the cottage. There is also a pub in Chillington just 50 metres away that also serves food. There are a host of wonderful restaurants, to suit all tastes and prices, within a 10 minute drive - notably Start Bay Inn at Torcoss, Church Inn at Stockenham, Globe Inn at Frogmore and Queens Head at Slapton. Kingsbridge and Dartmouth have a range of independent and multiple shops plus banks, supermarkets and restaurants.
