This place is absolutely gorgeous. We loved the location and there was so much room. The kitchen is spacious and cozy at the same time. The upstairs bathroom with the en-suite has an amazing view. When you looked out from the bed at night, it felt like you were in Venice. The twinkling lights and sounds of the water lulled you into the most restful night of sleep! We appreciated having wi-fi and the lounge/tv was a nice place to hang out. There were plenty of towels for all of our beach visits. We would recommend trying the local pub for their delicious pizzas and crab cakes...and the village store was great and the owners were absolutely lovely. The garage is a bit tricky, but everyone likes a challenge, but if you are like us, we gave up and parked up the hill which is free and has an amazing view. oh, and the post office is just around the corner and they are very nice in there...they supplied us with emergency chocolate run when everything was closed! It is close to the steam train station and they make a yummy cappuccino. Back to the cottage / accommodation, there were plenty of bathrooms. The outside balcony/veranda is perfect place for you to enjoy your morning coffee. We would recommend this place to stay and be sure to enjoy this absolutely amazing, friendly, scenic location!

Great house with plenty of room for a large group. Ideal location next to the lower ferry for easy access to Dartmouth. We loved the views from many rooms and the rooftop patio for a relaxed evening cocktail or morning coffee.thanks again Claire!

Our second stay at Slipway House was great, we couldn't wait to return. House is spacious, clean, comfy in all weathers and is a complete gem. Stunning views. We'll be back again!

Claire's house at Kingswear is absolutely stunning; the views from the windows are gorgeous and i hadn't realised just how close we would be to the river. It's the perfect spot for a family holiday with lots to see and do in the area. The dog walking is superb so it was great to be able to take our pup with us too. We would definitely stay again.

This place does exactly what it says on the tin! Right in the heart of Kingswear and seconds from the ferry to Dartmouth and steam train to Paignton. Alternatively, stay in and enjoy the beautiful, ever-changing views across the Dart from the upstairs windows. Granted, parking for all but the smallest car is tricky, but we didn't really need ours over the course of a 5 day break - there's so much to do within walking distance. Well equipped to self cater but with a couple of good pubs on the Kingswear side if you don't fancy cooking. Alternatively the ferry to Dartmouth runs 'til 11pm allowing access to a full choice of restaurants in Dartmouth. Recommended!

The house is ideally situated for exploring Dartmouth and the surrounding area. The accommodation is very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped, the patio provides a welcome additional space on sunny days. We will definately be returning.

My husband is from Kingswear, Devon UK where the house we rent out is located. We love this part of Devon. We have two sons and a dog and the five of us visit as often as we can. We bought this house in 2008 and I did it up myself trying to make it as welcoming and well equipped as possible. I always cook from scratch so the kitchen is well equipped. It is important to me that everybody who stays enjoys the house and is comfortable and wants to return.
