  • “Moorings is a wonderful house.”

    Yes, there are lots of stairs, and it’s at the top of a steep hill, but the views from all rooms are magnificent. There is always something to watch on the river. It was a pleasure to be away from the very busy Dartmouth.

It was a pleasure to be away from the very busy Dartmouth. The house is decorated in a restful style. It was sad to leave at the end of our holiday.

The property

Perched on the hillside of Kingswear, overlooking Dartmouth opposite and the River Dart below, is this stunning property set over three floors and enjoying picturesque views.

Perfectly suited for a family looking for an inviting base to return to after exploring this beautiful area of South Devon, Moorings' interior is stylish and contemporary, bursting with high quality fittings and elegance.

Come in through the front door and into the mosaic tiled porch to hang up your coats before heading downstairs to the lower-ground-floor where you'll find the wonderfully presented sitting room decorated in blue and grey hues in-keeping with the nautical theme.

Here you'll enjoy settling into one of the sofas or armchairs at the end of the day, and either putting a film on the Smart TV or getting stuck into a book.

Next door the kitchen/dining room provides a social hub, with a large island with a breakfast bar perfect for perching at with a glass of wine as you oversee the cooking, before gathering everyone around the dining table to enjoy a delicious meal, made even more enchanting thanks to the glorious backdrop of the harbour views out of the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors.

Whether it's a crisp winter day or a warm summer afternoon, you will want to sit out on the balcony as much as possible, and relish in the natural beauty of the countryside and the quaint waterside town vista.

Travel up the stairs onto the entry level ground floor and discover three bedrooms, each enjoying large windows with that spectacular view and offering tranquil sleeping spots with lovely furnishings, including a king-size, a twin and a children's bunk room, as well as a shower room being on this floor too.

Head upstairs again past the feature painted stone wall which adds rustic charm to this modern masterpiece, and come to the first-floor where you will find the master bedroom holding a king-size bed and benefiting from beautiful furnishings offering ample storage.

When you wake in the morning open up the French doors out to the balcony to begin your day with the magnificent views over the Kingswear Marina and Dartmouth, before stepping into the sparkling en-suite shower room to freshen up.

Begin your exploration of the area by hopping on a ferry to Dartmouth where historical buildings, quaint streets and exceptional local produce can be found served in the many restaurants and pubs.

A whole host of attractions awaits, explore Dartmouth Castle, or visit Agatha Christie's Holiday Home at Greenway, or take the kids to Woodlands Theme Park for endless fun.

Moorings is a superb property and with such spectacular views from your doorstep you'll have to drag yourself away.

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.
