Castle View Cottage is a delightful mid-terraced fisherman's cottage full of character with excellent views from the rear decking in particular across the River Dart and over to Kingswear.  The property has been very tastefully upgraded in recent years and is equipped, decorated and furnished to a very good standard throughout.  It is an ideal holiday retreat for a couple or family with young children looking for a comfortable and cosy base with good views close to the town and its amenities.
