A most enjoyable week in a lovely apartment. Very clean and comfortable. Delightful views in al weathers and times of the day from the dining area and balcony. Very convenient for visiting local places of interest. It's also a walker’s paradise along the coastal paths. All in all a most lovely autumn break.

Had a great time with the family. Apartment lovely, amazing views. The boys enjoyed Blackpool sands. They are never too old for crabbing. Very relaxing holiday.

Great family holiday. A very relaxing and most enjoyable stay. Amazing views around the area. Dartmouth and local people are very friendly all made very special by an amazing apartment.

Superb accommodation – a great holiday! We have had a fantastic fortnight staying here. Beds lovely & comfortable and we haven’t tired of the view. We have regularly walked to Dartmouth& back up hill with heavy shopping!! It has been great to hear & see the stream train everyday. Kids have had great success crabbing of Bayard’s cove. Lots of happy memories of Blackpool sands, crab sandwiches at Brixham, fish & chips at Torcross and our day out at Greenway. A terrific holiday made all the more special for wonderful accommodation

July 15

This is our first holiday in Kingswear – the apartment was great, crabbing off Dartmouth harbour was great, Alfresco’s was great, Rockfish was great (book for Fri, Sat or Sun though!) the Steam Train was great, Bayard’s Inn was great, The Golden Hind at Brixham was great (Pirate Days on Thursdays!), basically we had a great week. The highlight of everyday was the car ferry over to Dartmouth!!

Lovely views, fun crabbing and exploring Greenways

June 15

“Beautiful apartment & views.” 5 out of 5 stars. The Pines is a truly delightful apartment with a contemporary homely feel. It enjoys a quiet location with excellent views, enhanced by a super balcony. Kingswear is the choice for a discerning visitor over Dartmouth

Definitely got the wow factor!! During the night look at the turret windows and see the reflections from Dartmouth. Upper bedroom stunning! Loved Rockfish as recommended. Much to see -train-boat-bus- we tried it all, a splendid week in a fabulous location. Thank you for the fireworks display before we left! Westfamily

Wonderful break in a lovely apartment in a fantastic location. We would definitely recommend and would love to come back ourselves. Thank you Rossfamily

"A great place to relax and enjoy the views and area"

 We enjoyed a great week here. We have been visiting the area regularly for nearly 20 years so knew well the location and what to expect of the great views, as well as distance to ferry etc (ferry is 12 mins, shop and bus stop 8 mins - no real hardship if like us you're there to enjoy the coast path and surrounding countryside with all the ups and downs that involves). The apartment is very comfortable, nicely furnished, light and airy. Top room is v nice but you'll probably spend most time in the turret space or balcony. Great views and on the quiet end of Kingswear (not that it really has a noisy end) but at least you can park, and relatively easy access compared to many apartments closer to the river on Dartmouth side. Owners a pleasure to deal with and v helpful. Southern England guest via TripAdvisor

We had a great stay, thank you

"Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful."

 My wife and I were lucky enough to have found this spot, but unlucky enough to only have spent a couple of days. And yes we had sunshine! The condition of the accommodation was excellent. All furniture and fittings of high standard. Everything we could have wished for was provided. The views are incredible, both down towards the harbour and also across the valley. Sitting outside on the balcony for a morning coffee or glass of wine in the evening are an idyllic way to start or end a day. Perfectly positioned for a brisk walk down to the ferry, and to cross over to Dartmouth. Uphill on the way back, but 2 perfectly positioned pubs provide a rest-stop for those requiring. All in all we would highly recommend, and WILL be back. Gareth, Jo’Burg
