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!
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.

Location location location
The house was in a great location, and getting 10 travel passes for the lower ferry was a great saving, so made it easier to travel around, the house was very well equipped with quality items in the kitchen, the apartment was Cosy and very comfortable. only down side could not get many t.v channels and definetly not 1,2,3,4,5, so may be a good idea to take a few dvd with you or even better go out.
Yes, the TV reception can be patchy, particularly in bad weather for some reason! However, most of the time it is fine. We shall put a few more DVDs in the flat but as this review says, going out is much more fun!
