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/induction hob) with back door to tiny courtyard. Steep stairs 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). Reserved parking, 300 yards. Brilliant village shop will deliver shopping (including logs). A lovely location with lots to do, including walking, crabbing and boat and steam train trips.

The Devon region

Torbay and the Red Cliffs: Napoleon declared Torquay “beau” when he saw it from the sea (true, he was a prisoner and there wasn't much of it then), and certainly it could be in the south of France when, in the sunshine, you look down from most of its seven hills on the expensive boats in its harbour/marina, windsurfers and water-skiers skimming its bay, and palm trees, very well-kept public lawns and flower beds and posh-looking hotels lining its seafront behind a sandy beach. People play bowls in white clothes. The exotic impression fades in its streets, but name a likely resort facility, sport or amusement and you can bet Torquay will have it, as well as some fine houses on its hills.

The three towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham surround a very beautiful bay and make up the West Country's largest resort. Paignton, less glamorous-looking than Torquay, has red cliffs and sand and an excellent zoo. Brixham is the fishing port, with still attractive harbour and tiers of coloured houses around it. There are several sandy beaches, and boat trips across the bay and round Berry Head (lighthouse) to Dartmouth.

North of Torquay is a mainly cliff-coast to the boat-filled mouth of the long, broad river Teign estuary (Teignmouth). Above Teignmouth, its good golf course has wonderful views both inland to Dartmoor and out to sea. The best route to Exeter and places east is via it and the A380 – not the coast road which is mainly ribbon-developed, slow and dull. The most beautiful route of all is by the mainline railway (Brunel designed) which for much of the way between Newton Abbot and Exeter hugs the shore.


Kingswear: village (shops, pubs) at the mouth of the River Dart, across the river from Dartmouth (old town). Car/passenger ferry joins them. Excellent base for boating. Agatha Christie's house Greenway (Nat. Trust), 2½ miles. Blackpool Sands, 3½ miles. Torbay and Brixham (sandy beaches, golf), 4½ miles; nearer, fine cliff and woodland walks past pretty coves. Private steam railway to Paignton (resort town).
