Riversea is a fabulous luxurious property in popular Kingswear – the perfect holiday home for a larger family or groups of friends. The property sleeps 7, has 4 large bedrooms and two bathrooms, the open plan living area is expansive, a relaxing area for chatting with family and friends.

The waterside village of Kingswear is in a fabulous location and offers easy access into Dartmouth with its winding streets and pretty inner harbour and it’s just a short walk to the lower passenger ferry. With several marinas and many deep water moorings, Kingswear is a sailing haven and a very popular destination attracting many passing yachtsmen and women. It's also home to the Royal Dart Yacht Club who put on the annual Royal Regatta at the end of August.

You'll find all the local amenities on the doorstep, Kingswear itself has pubs and a very good local shop close at hand. We recommended heading to Kingswear station and take the historic steam train to Paignton… a lovely journey, you’ll feel as though you're stepping back in time.

Riversea has fabulous views over the water which can be seen from much of the property. There's a very attractive raised terrace are at the rear of the house which is a great spot for dining or relaxing with a coffee or aperitif before dinner.

This is the perfect holiday for relaxing, kick off your shoes and just indulging in luxurious surroundings with fabulous views.

Such a great house! The views are so special and we have all had a wonderful time here. The house was spotless on arrival and had everything we could possibly need. The beds are so comfortable and we all commented on how lovely and soft the towels are! We cannot wait until we come back next year! Thank you so much. The Tillyers and The Millers

A truly amazing home, thank you for sharing it with us. The views are outstanding and we were particularly impressed with the level of decor and finish. The new kitchen is lovely and we particularly like the oven. It has been our first visit but we hope to come back again.
