Kingswear Cottages

Across the river from Dartmouth lies the quiet, colourful village of Kingswear. We have a number of delightful holiday cottages in Kingswear, ranging from intimate bolt holes for two, to larger homes perfect for a family holiday. Many of our Kingswear cottages are also luxury properties, with special touches and commanding views of the River Dart. The Kingswear, Dartmouth and Brixham area is also one of the most dog-friendly spots in South Devon, being so close to both the coast and countryside, so much of our self-catering accommodation in the area is also pet-friendly.  

Positioned at the mouth of the river, it’s a great base for exploring Torbay, a UNESCO World Heritage site just a short drive away or take the car or passenger ferry across to Dartmouth and explore the stunning coastline which sits in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With a little shop and a couple of pubs, Kingswear has enough local amenities to make it a relaxing car free holiday if you choose, plus it’s only a short ferry crossing to the busier town of Dartmouth.  

If you love walking then you can pick up the South West Coast Path, where local highlights include Kingswear Castle, the WWII defenses at Froward Point and seal spotting off the coast. If you have a few hours to spare walk to Berry Head, a conservation area outside Brixham with a Napoleonic era fortress, a local cafe and some of the best views of Torbay. 

The Torbay area is also a go-to destination for Agatha Christie fans, but everyone loves a visit to her old home, Greenway House, regardless of whether you are familiar with the author’s work or not. Now a National Trust property, Greenway House is a fascinating museum with beautiful, wooded grounds and a cafe and shop on site. You can get to Greenway by bus or car, but if you do choose to drive here, be sure to book your parking spot through the National Trust website before. You can also arrive at Greenway via the Dartmouth passenger ferry, or on the Dartmouth Steam Railway by disembarking at Greenway Halt and walking up to the estate. If you have a four-legged friend, be sure to bring them along, as dogs are now welcome at Greenway in honour of the Christie family’s own love for the canine species.  

Serene, sunny and truly beautiful, a stay in one of our Kingswear cottages will surely make for a holiday in South Devon to remember.
