Self-catering holiday rentals in Kingswear for your home stay

Kingswear is in one of the most scenic areas of Devon but, while the village is relatively quiet, there is lots to do and see. Located at the mouth of the River Dart, opposite the busy holiday resort of Dartmouth, the village is a perfect base for exploring the county's coastline and countryside. South Devon is famous for its beaches and one of the best, Blackpool Sands, is within easy travelling distance of Kingswear. The idyllic stretch of golden sand is surrounded by fragrant pine trees and has all the facilities you could need for a relaxing day at the seaside, including a cafe and shop, and places to hire snorkelling gear, kayaks, bodyboards and jet skis. Another great way to enjoy the coast is to take a ride on the Dartmouth Steam Railway, which will give you some magnificent views on the journey from Kingswear to Paignton. Booking a holiday home in Kingswear will put you in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which has some of the best walks in south-west England, including routes along the cliff-tops to spots where you can watch seals and treks up the Dart Valley. There are also lots of local landmarks to visit, including Dartmouth Castle, the gardens at Coleton Fishacre and Agatha Christie's holiday home, Greenway.

Holiday letting in Kingswear for your short break

There is a selection of holiday houses in Kingswear itself, which will put you within walking distance of the village's pubs, shops and harbour. There are properties available that accommodate up to eight people, which have modern facilities and great views. For something a little quieter, you could book a holiday cottage in Kingswear. They are mostly located on the outskirts of the village, but have the added benefits of elevated locations that offer the best vistas and private outdoor space for barbecues while watching the sunset. Alternatively, you could choose a holiday apartment in Kingswear on the banks of the River Dart, which is an idyllic spot for a cosy break as a couple. With traditional interiors, high-quality kitchens and bathrooms, and decked areas outside, the flats have everything you need for a successful getaway.

Best time to enjoy Kingswear

A summer holiday in Kingswear is an excellent choice for couples or families, as the warm weather is ideal for days at the beach or exploring the countryside. There are also lots of events, including the local rowing club's annual regatta in late June and the Royal Dart Yacht Club's Classic Channel Regatta in early July. A spring holiday in Kingswear is a good option for walkers, as the paths are quiet and the conditions are perfect. Woodlands theme park, which has both rides and a small zoo-farm, is open from March to November, so there is a good option for family days out at Easter or in the school half-term holidays.
