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.

Previous Customer,

Our first holiday in over a year and it had to be DEVON. We have celebrated a birthday and our wedding anniversary this week (we were married at the Royal Castle) and we have had a wonderful break.

Past Customer,

Thank you for such a beautifully prepared cottage, it was immaculate!! A real home from home which was even more appreciated because of the awful weather we had!! Even so, we had a lovely break, so nice to have a change of scenery after the winter lockdown, we feel recharged and restored. Hopefully we will visit again and be able to eat out more and see more of the area. Many thanks

Past Customer,

Lovely stay. WEe love the house and its superb position.
