Property code: OC-BCWATR

This lovely ground-floor apartment is located on the outskirts of Kingswear village in South Devon and provides a wonderful home from home for a couple’s break close to many of the region’s most popular destinations. Spend your days exploring the village, which sits on the banks of the River Dart and boasts some of the most spectacular views of the river and over to Dartmouth, and your evenings dining alfresco with your loved one in the pretty patio area.

The apartment is very well equipped and decorated in subtle pastel shades which create a relaxing ambience. Step into the lounge with its large two-seater sofa, wall-mounted Smart TV for an evening’s relaxation after days out on the South Devon coast. There’s a modern kitchen towards the rear of the property along with a conservatory with a dining table and chairs for romantic meals a deux. Alternatively, take a drink outside to the rear patio which is surrounded by shrubs and woodland. When the day is done, refresh in the bathroom before retiring to the double bedroom for a great night’s sleep.

In the centre of the village, which is less than 1 mile from the apartment, there’s a handy village shop alongside two great pubs. The village also offers great coastal walks to Coleton Fishacre or Kingswear Castle, with many other walking routes around. For a fun day out, catch the ferry to Dartmouth from the harbour in Kingswear, or you can catch the Kingswear Steam Train and do the Round Robin which takes you on a scenic tour of Dartmouth, Totnes and Paignton on bus, boat and train.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the heart of Kingswear, at the head of a creek, where there are 2 good public houses, post office, village shop, coffee shop and Italian bistro. This is where you can get the ferry to Dartmouth and the steam train to Paignton, as well as pick up the South West Coast Trail. Nearby is Coleton Fishacre (NT).

Property was cold,and we had to put the air conditioning on - unusual for end of May. This was largely down to the positioning of the property which got no sun. Also there were literally no views of anything other than a few trees, which was very misleading as lots of views of the harbour were shown on the website.other than that, the property was Read moreclean and well maintained and in easy reach of the harbour and walks.

The cottage is in a fantastic location, a stone's throw from a lovely green area (great if you have a dog) which, if you walk a little further, takes you right into town, from where the ferry to Dartmouth is easily accessible and regular. Kingswear itself is lovely, with a few good pubs etc, and Dartmouth offers plenty more. The house itself is a gRead morereat place to stay, very well equipped and in a quiet location. Hide

overall a very comfortable apartment althoung a little cold in the morning and evening as the living room heater didnt work. and also unable to dry towells. sugest all these run off a thermostat instead of a timer. as timers do no take into account outside temperature drops especially in autumn months.

I said we had no car when I booked over the phone.. Apartment, which was lovely, was supposed to be near ferry but we had to walk in the road some way to get there with our cases and as we are 74 and 76 the going was hard work as we could not find the place for a long time even though we asked different people just lucky to see a delivery driver whRead moreo told us where it was by which time we were very tired.Found a footpath in the woods to use other days. Only 1 local store and 1 pub in Kingswear which was lovely. You really needed a car. Although I have an iPhone Wi-Fi not very good. Very few channels on tv. We have already booked and paid for another holiday with you to Whitby in September. I would make sure if I was recommending you to somebody else without a car to make sure it was nearer amenities. We did have lovely weather which probably helped overcome the other problems. Hide
