Happy Christmas from Kingswear

Hello Rapunzel here, just wanting to wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

There has been lots going on in Dartmouth and Kingswear including the return of the only steam powered paddle steamer left in Britain the Kingswear Castle which is very exciting:

The paddle steamer Kingswear Castle is the last remaining coal-fired paddle steamer in operation in the UK today. She was built in 1924 at Philip & Son of Dartmouth and plied her trade between Totnes and Dartmouth until 1965 (her engines are even older, dating back to 1904, eight years before the sinking of the Titanic). In her heyday when this impressive ship was the life blood of the river Dart, she could carry almost 500 passengers”

Dartmouth & Kingswear are great places to visit with lots to see and do all year round, so why not book a break in our penthouse Turrety Tower apartment and see what you can discover…… look at our Special offer page for details of a very special deal, think of it as an early Christmas present from me!
