About Claire Kettle
I live with my 14 yr old son in a small village near York. Although I am from Yorkshire, my late husband originates from Devon where he was brought up and we still have family in the area so over the years we have been regular visitors to this beautiful part of the country. Dartmouth is our favourite place to relax and enjoy time with family and friends.
Claire Kettle purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Claire Kettle chose Kingswear
As a family we love many parts of the South West of England but we have fallen in love with Dartmouth. With it's historic background and superb position at the mouth of the River Dart it appeals to us in a variety of ways. There are plenty of fine bistros, bars and restaurants amongst the winding streets and an array of specialist shops. The Estuary is a delight at any time of year where there is always some activity on the water whether its boats cruising down to Totnes, Ferrys taking visitors to Kinsgwear or simply people sitting on the Embankment watching children crabbing for the afternoon. It is a town with plenty to offer without having to use a car, however there are many attractions within a 20 mile radius so a car is useful to keep most visitors happy.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment is in the heart of Dartmouth on the level only one street away from the Estuary. It is spacious and well presented. A real home from home with all of the home comforts you expect plus wifi

This was the second time we had stayed there and we loved it. The apartment is located in the town centre so is walking distance to everything. I would definitely recommend this apartment. Communication with Claire was great and she was very accommodating.
Thank you Lucinda for such a glowing review. Looking forward to your next stay.
Superb Holiday in a Perfect location
The flat is all you'll need and more in Dartmouth, we all had a fantastic stay here and cannot recommend it highly enough. We will most definitely be booking again and again. We love Dartmouth and have stayed here for over 20 years every summer but never stayed in the centre. This was a fab location and the flat was clean and very comfortable. It was very spacious. Well equipped and all appliances worked brilliantly.
Recommend to all!
Perfect location in the middle of Dartmouth.
Great. Convenient location in the middle of everything
Thank you Betsy,
I hope you managed to get some sunny weather !! And enjoy the Dartmouth bubble. And thank you so much for the review - much appreciated.
Heart of Dartmouth
This wonderful flat is in the heart of Dartmouth, its location couldn't be more fabulous... it's well laid out and spacious. The beds are very comfortable so getting a good nights rest after getting some sea air is easy. The kitchen is well equipped so if you want to dine in there's no problem.
Great shower with large enclosure.
Overall it's home from home.
It is important to point out however that this flat is on the top floor so there is about 35 stairs to climb in the internal hallway before entering the property...So anyone with mobility difficulties should probably not rent this flat...
Cracking place to stay in a wonderful town!
Really enjoyed our stay at Rock Ferry. Apartment is perfectly placed and has everything - and more - than you need. Dartmouth is such a buzzing little town and being smack bang in the middle of it (as you are when you stay at Rick Ferry) is awesome. Nipping out for the shops or for fish & chips or for a spot of crabbing is so easy. And then coming home to such a comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped rental property is just brill. Thank you very much.
Thank you Maurice - your review is really appreciated. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Please share with your friends and family www.rockferrydartmouth.com
Very good location, comfortable apartment.
Just had another lovely stay in Dartmouth. This spacious apartment is very convenient for the town and right opposite the famous Alf Fresco if you want to eat out for breakfast or lunch. Despite being central, it's not noisy during the night. The apartment is in good condition and supplied with all the kit you need for your stay. This was our second stay, we'll be back and I would recommend it.
The famous blue flag beach - Blackpool Sands is only 15 mins drive away with a super cafe/restaurant. Slapton Sands offering a 3 mile stretch of pebble beach is a further 5 mins away whilst Dartmouth itself boasts two small coves (Castle Cove & Sugary Cove) close to the Castle within a 15 min walk. Bigbury on Sea beach is a sandy beach within an area of outstanding natural beauty just over 30 mins drive.
Totnes is the nearest railway station which is approx 12 miles from Dartmouth. There is a good hourly bus service to Dartmouth from Totnes. Exeter is the nearest airport (1 hour) but it is a good idea to have a car to enjoy the many wonderful places in the surrounding area.
Within a 1 min walk you can catch a ferry from the Embankment over to Kingswear (5 min ferry ride) & the famous Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway. There are also ferry's to Dartmouth Castle, the pretty village of Dittisham, 'Greenways' the home of Agatha Christie and a variety of other trips up the Dart Estuary. There are many beautiful villages within a 20 mile radius and numerous stunning walks in the area.
M&S food, Co-op and cashpoints on the doorstep. Tourist information centre, museum and cinema in town centre. Larger Sainsburys supermarket located on the edge of town, 5 mins drive.
