About Peter Martin
We are active, outdoorsy people with three dogs and a small boat which is on a trailer outside the apartment. We love walking in the woods and along the coast paths, and spending days with the dogs on the beach at Man Sands. We also love pottering up the river on the boat and visiting the Anchorstone Cafe at Dittisham, famous for local seafood. We are also interested in wildlife particularly the many seabirds we see on the Dart, including egrets and oyster catchers. It's also a good day when we see seals and dolphins in the harbour! Having said that, we also love to settle in with a good book and a glass of something nice, and just relax!
Peter Martin purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Peter Martin chose Kingswear
We bought the upstairs apartment in 2006 because we have always loved Dartmouth and being by the sea. We like Kingswear because it's a bit quieter than Dartmouth and because the dog walking and boat launching is right on the doorstep. However, all the fun and bustle of Dartmouth is just a short ferry ride away (or trip on the boat) but we can leave it behind when we want a little peace! Kingswear has a proper village atmosphere and it's a lovely little community where everyone knows each other. We chose the apartment for it's simple practicality, as we spend most of our time outdoors. Also, we have our own parking space! We also own the upstairs flat which is now let as a holiday flat too.
What makes this Apartment unique
Being in a cul-de-sac means the 'street', such as it is, is safe and quiet. Even the main road is quiet as traffic is restricted by the capacity of the Lower Ferry - just 8 cars at a time! The most noise we get comes from the owls in the woods at night. Having said that, there is a bus stop 30 yards away if you want to go out in Torbay and leave the car behind. But if you do want to take the car you can guarantee you'll be able to park right by the front door when you return, and that's something not many properties in Kingswear or Dartmouth can offer.

Clean and well presented accommodation, everything provided that you are likely to need whilst away.
Kingswear is a beutitful location, apartment was within easy reach of train, ferry and plenty of walks from property no need to use a vehicle once you arrive.
The one negative if there could be one, due to being in a valley with trees to the front and rear makes it rather dark and chilly within the house. Even during the recent hot spell, you felt you had to go out all time just to feel a bit of warmth from the sunshine,
Comfortable apartment in an ideal location.
We had a lovely week in Kingswear, the car did not leave the drive between arrival and departure! We made full use of all the available transport opportunities on the doorstep, ferrys (3 different ones over the river to Dartmouth and also from Dartmouth to the castle), steam train and bus. Also a lot of walking and eating.
Lovely apartment. Fully equipped. Really close to ferry and train station,just a 10 minute walk.
Water head gem

Great place to stay
Perfect place to stay, good walks . Dog friendly everywhere we went😀
Coast/Beach: Waterhead Creek is 100 yards away where you can launch small boats and canoes there or sit on the green with a picnic and watch the swans and seabirds (there is often an Egret pottering about when the tide is out). Alternatively, walk either side of the creek another two hundred yards (5 mins) to the river Dart with the marina, ferries and coastal/river walks. There are two small beaches in Dartmouth or a good selection of larger ones, either side of the river within a short drive.
