Coastguard Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed former coastguard cottage enjoying elevated views over the beautiful Waterhead Creek, River Dart and Dartmouth in the distance. 

This end of terrace cottage is ideally placed for exploring everything Kingswear has to offer.  Considered the quieter and sunnier side of the water the village boats a couple of pubs/restaurants, a well-stocked village shop and even a teddy bear shop. The scenic Dart Trail walk follows the banks of the beautiful River Dart and leads to the impressive Greenway, once a home of Agatha Christie and now a National Trust treasure. For something different and if you wish to go further afield the Dartmouth steam train departs from Kingswear itself and can take you to Totnes, Brixham, Churston, Goodrington Sands, Paignton and Torquay.

Dartmouth, steeped in maritime history and renowned for its lively harbour, historic Castle and imposing Royal Naval College can be quickly and easily accessed by foot and car on the ferries which run continually throughout the day. Once here a picturesque network of cobbled streets and alleys are easily navigated and brimming with independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants for all ages to enjoy.

The cottage was lovely, the view amazing and the location perfect. Ideally situated for trips with the Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company, close to two National Trust properties and with easy access to the South West Coast Path.
