    • “Fantastic little town. People were really friendly. Easy to get anywhere without using the car. Cottage was so comfortable with a wonderful view. Steps to the cottage were a bit of a workout but ultimately did us good - I think. Only downside was the parking,it cost us £56 to park in the marina car park for the week.”

    Mr Constable, WATFORD, June 2018

    • “The cottage has everything you need. When you get to the top of the steps the view is superb well worth the climb.”

    Mrs Harrison, CHESTERFIELD, June 2018

    • “The cottage was wonderful, VERY clean, extremely comfortable, thoughtfully and extensively equipped (more so than any other cottage or holiday flat I have ever booked). My sister in law (Mrs Linda Rickard) and I could not have enjoyed a better time and we were both hugely impressed by the kindness and helpfulness of everyone we met in Kingswear. Full marks to you and I can confirm we have both been singing the praises of our wonderful week in The Boat House. If I were to make any constructive comment to you I would suggest that the access steps should be mentioned on your website. We knew about them before we booked but only because I read all the reviews printed. Also, we were slightly disappointed that despite leaving 2 messages for Donna on the phone number listed on our booking confirmation, we received no contact in response. We were unable to open the key safe (having both made many attempts to do so) - Linda Rickard has a similar key safe at her house - and we are so grateful to the charming gentleman who so kindly came to our rescue. It may be that Donna's phone does not have voice mail and does not accept text messages but I assumed that my mobile phone number would have shown up as a "missed call" Perhaps that was not the case. However, the above was a very minor blip in an otherwise fantastic holiday. We both certainly hope to repeat the visit though perhaps we would have to look at something with slightly less steps next time around as we are not getting any younger!! :-) May I also point out that we did read the "instructions" for waste removal which asked visitors to place all rubbish in the "seagull proof" sack outside the back door. There was no sack so we disposed of all recyclable items in the bins provided on the Banjo and we took all other rubbish back with us. Thanks so much With very best regards, Patricia Brown Linda Rickard I will click "yes" to publishing our feedback PROVIDED our personal details, addresses etc. are not used.”

    Miss Brown, SWANLEY, May 2018

    • “The views from the cottage were wonderful and trips to Dartmouth to eat out were a real treat too. We also explored more of the area and had some nice, if arduous walks behind Kingswear. Beautiful part of the world!”

    Ms Mcnally, SHEFFIELD, April 2018

The Property

In the heart of Kingswear, an 18th cent. terraced cottage with sensational views along the River Dart and across to Dartmouth - definitely a ‘ships ahoy!’ view, but not for the unfit or faint-hearted because there are 74 steps up to it from the road. In typical 18th cent. style, you walk along the front of its sister cottages to your front door, with its decked terrace (tables/chairs) on two levels at the front.Living room with woodburner, TV/DVD and views to the river. Kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven) with back door to tiny courtyard. Steep stairs (top stairgate) up to two double bedrooms with wood floors (rugs), one with 5' bed and river view and the other with access to one side of bed only. Bathroom (suite, 4'4" long bath with shower over). Public car park, 300 yards. Brilliant village shop will deliver shopping (including logs). The terrace has unrivalled views of Dartmouth Regatta (30 August to 1 September 2018) with its spectacular fireworks and Red Arrows display. A lovely location with lots to do, including walking, crabbing and boat and steam train trips.
