Local Attractions near Kingston
Top Attractions: Glorious beaches, a short drive to Dartmoor. Coastal towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth and the riverside villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo.
Recommended Places to Visit: Places to visit. Salcombe is well worth a visit. We recommend you use the park and ride into the town. There are lovely shops here; Fat Face, Crew, Musto, Henri Lloyd, Sea Salt, to name a few. The estuary villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are beautiful. Widecombe in the Moor still has the famous Widecombe Fair. This is a very traditional Dartmoor village. Make sure you call in at the Ruddlestone Inn, a very old pub! It is only recently that women have been accepted there!! Ashburton has many antique shops and is the gateway to the moor. There is a supberb fish shop here. Kingsbridge is the local town to Kingston, with plenty of shops an active waterfront estuary and plenty of things to do. There are gardens worth a visit at Lukesland, near Ivybridge. Occasionally, nearby Mothercombe House and Flete House have an open garden day and this is well worth a visit. You will see it being advertised on the A379 and also at the gate lodge to Flete House, also on the A379. If you are visiting during April/May you will notice a point to point race being advertised at Flete. This is country horse racing at its best and is a lovely day out. It is very popular locally with people taking picnics and enjoying a bet on the races. For children of all ages there are Woodlands fun park and there are leaflets on this and many other attractions in the area. The Vue Cinema in Plymouth. The same leisure complex also has ten pin bowling. The Vue leisure complex is on the way into Plymouth City Centre. From Modbury follow the A379 or head back to the A38 and follow the signs to Plymouth city centre. Down the A38, towards Exeter, at the Bovey Tracey exit (about 30 minutes away) there is a pottery where you can throw your own pots and decorate them. It also has a lovely tea room. Very close to this is the House of Marbles which has a lovely toy and gift shop. It also has an amazing marble run in the shop. Just down the road from VUE in Plymouth is The National Marine Aquarium, well worth a visit but does get busy on rainy days in the summer. For the Lewis Hamilton?s among you, there is an indoor go-karting circuit at Ernesettle in Plymouth (Just off the A38 before you get to the Saltash bridge) and Woodbury Exeter, where Nigel Mansell used to live! Trago Mills is also close to Bovey Tracey. We have a love/hate relationship with this place, and when you visit you will understand why!! We have spent many hours with our children on the small steam railway. It also has a really lovely indoor model railway exhibition (featured several times on Television and Blue Peter). On the site, there are several attractions here, such as go karts, a boating lake (with ride in pedlo swans and mini fishing trawlers for children ? and grown-ups alike!), dodgems etc. The store itself sells everything and you can pick up some bargains there!! It has a huge and impressive garden centre, with everything you could wish for. China Blue is a family friendly pottery based in Totnes. 01803 860908 Garden Centres. For garden enthusiasts there are also garden centres at Ivybridge (Endsleigh), just off the A38 and Otter Nursery on the A379 towards Plymouth between the village of Yealmpton and Brixton. Both garden centres have restaurants and sell clothing, shoes and gifts. Otter Nurseries is probably the better of the two, certainly the restaurant there is very good. At Buckfastleigh (off the A38), there is the South Devon Steam Railway and also the Butterfly farm.
