    “This is an outstanding property with amazing views over the river to Dartmouth and the Royal Naval College.”

    Comfortably furnished with lovely decor, this property has everything you could need for a relaxing stay. The large lower balcony is perfect for spending the time watching the world go by on the river. Dartmouth itself is easily accessible via the lower ferry, and shops and supermarkets a short drive away. We will certainly return.

Situated in an elevated position overlooking the River Dart, this spacious, three-storey holiday home boasts breathtaking views of the Dart, Dartmouth and the surrounding countryside.

Sleeping eight, this four-bedroom property is an ideal destination for family holidays and group getaways.

With an array of nearby attractions, eateries and popular chocolate box towns and villages to explore, there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained on and off the Dart. On the lower ground floor there is a welcoming sitting room which invites you to sit back and relax.

Boasting charming blue and grey hues, the décor reflects the property’s position by the Dart.

Featuring an electric fireplace in the lounge, with sliding doors out to a fabulous balcony, Moorings offers comfortable living all-year-round.

A Smart TV is mounted on the wall, so you can cuddle on the sofa as a family and watch a film – when you’re not marvelling at the stunning view that is. The open-plan, social kitchen and dining area is located on the lower ground floor, with glass sliding doors that open out to the balcony so that you can enjoy the vista and fresh coastal breeze when dining.

About the location


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. Embark on a journey through beautiful countryside to Paignton on the Dartmouth Steam Railway and visit the delightful fishing harbour of Brixham, home to Britain’s largest fishing fleet. Experience and unforgettable holiday in the South Hams District.

Please note that the fourth bedroom has bunk beds
