    “We really enjoyed our holiday staying in Coastguard cottage.”

    It was cosy but spacious enough for our family of four with two teenagers and Betsy the Cavapoo. The cottage is well fitted out to feel like a home rather than a hotel. The location is perfect to enjoy tranquil living but with Dartmouth a ferry away and Paignton just down the road for those all important food supplies. There are great walks from the cottage without using the car. All in all it was a wonderful experience which no doubt we will repeat in the future. Thanks to Steve and Francoise ...

About the location

KINGSWEAR, DEVON

Dartmouth 2.4 miles; Paignton 7.6 miles

The colourful harbour village of Kingswear is set opposite Dartmouth, on the banks of the River Dart estuary in South Devon. Nestled within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this village boasts some of the most beautiful views on the south coast. Kingswear castle sits on the rocks cradling the sea, and Coleton Fishacre National Trust Property makes for a lovely day out with the family. There are plenty of shops, pubs and gentle strolls along the waterfront, a haven for families, couples and friends. You can take the passenger ferry across to Dartmouth and explore one of the most popular tourist locations in Devon. Its narrow streets are lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus there are many cycling and walking routes around the town, not forgetting the spectacular South West Coast Path. Bayards Cove Fort is a must! Situated at the entrance to Dartmouth harbour, it offers a picturesque setting, reached only by foot.
