the classic guide

A guide to the West Country from the people that know…


Teetering on a little headland that stretches into the River Dart, Kingswear faces Dartmouth across the water, and has just as much Devon charm. Being in Kingswear is all about slowing down and taking time to relax and watch the yachts bob on the river, enjoy really fresh seafood at a waterfront café or mooch around the shops and galleries. If you fancy exploring the river, try a trip on the Picnic Boat, with luxury picnic hampers provided as you sail along.

Lovely little walk with great views

I went in February so not much was open and the streets were clear of visitors which made for a lovely quiet amble around the headland. There are lots of hills, obviously from the geography, and great views out of the estuary here and there. It was really interesting walking alongside all the impressive properties and daydreaming - may have to book a holiday cottage near here! It's an easy, regular quick ferry over that only cost a couple of pounds.
