    “The kitchen appliances were substandard.”

    The frying pans were scratched, full of rust, so not usable. The kitchen table was too small to use properly with a family of 3.

    The frying pans were scratched, full of rust, so not usable. The kitchen table was too small to use properly with a family of 3. The view is unique and the biggest plus of the Boathouse. The outside terrace sets were great and we could eat outside in great comfort.

    The Owners are delighted that you so enjoyed the view and the newly laid terrace and dining facilities. Your comments regarding the kitchen equipment are contrary to comments by other guest stating that the kitchen is well equipped. There are plenty of saucepans and frying pans. At the end of each season any damaged equipment is replaced.Thank you for taking the time to help us maintain excellent standards. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Right in the lovely heart of Kingswear is situated this 18th century terraced cottage.

With fabulous views along the River Dart and to Dartmouth, it is excellent accommodation with masses for families or couples to do in the area.

The view is due to its elevated location, since you climb nearly 80 steps up from the road and, in true 18th century style, pass along in front of the neighbouring doorways to your front door.

The sitting room is cosy with a traditional wood burning stove and those great views.

Enjoy cooking fresh local seafood and eating in the kitchen, with its back door opening on to a sunny little courtyard.

Steep stairs head up to the two double wood-floored bedrooms, one with river view.

Outside the front door, enjoy meals or drinks on your decked terrace over two levels, the perfect spot for the view, especially at the end of August when the Dartmouth Regatta unfolds in a blaze of glory.

You don't even have to tear yourself away from the ever changing view, since the local village shop will deliver your groceries, even logs.

There are more shops and pubs to explore in the village, plus a ferry to take you over to Dartmouth with its fascinating town life.

With crabbing, walking, boat and steam train trips, Agatha Christie’s house at Greenway and beautiful Blackpool Sands to enjoy, you can never be bored at The Boathouse.

This is a lovely location.
