Aft Cottage boasts an excellent location to explore the South Hams, has secure & gated parking & garage, a master en suite top bedroom, a second floor lounge & dining area, outside decked patio with seating & BBQ - all with stunning views.

About Ben Ridge

We live on the Hertfordshire & Essex border in the East of England. Ben was brought up and schooled in South Devon, his parents only minutes away from the cottage so he has known the area for 30+ years, we frequently visit as we all still love the area - maybe one day moving back down for good!!

Ben Ridge purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Ben Ridge chose Kingswear

Private, gated parking in the quite village of Hillhead above the hustle & bustle of its busier neighbours of Dartmouth, Paignton & Brixham. Excellent bus services & easy access makes this cottage a fantastic stay for anyone looking to explore, by car, bus or on foot. Great local area for dog walking and loads to explore

What makes this cottage unique

From the rear of the cottage views out to the sea overlooking Brixham and to te front the rolling, green countryside down towards the River Dart. Ideally situated to explore both the quiet, picturesque towns and villages of the South Hams & across the to English Riviera towns of Brixham, Paignton, Torquay with their busy esplanades, beaches, pubs & restaurants.

Beautiful cottage in a semi- rural location near Brixham.

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely love this part of Devon, the cottage is located in the small village of Hillhead, near Brixham. It is conviently located for the many tourist attractions that this part of Devon has to offer. The cottage is near the ferries to Dartmouth. It is a clean and a well presented cottage. There are 2 bathrooms which is useful when you have children. The master bedroom with en suite bathroom was lovely. There are sea views and beautiful views of the Devon countryside. We also liked the gated parking.

I would recommend Aft cottage to anyone and hope to return at some point in the future. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the owners for a wonderful stay.
