Sunset Cottage

What a location! Sunset cottage is in the lovely waterside village of Kingswear, just across the river from Dartmouth. The views from the property are fabulous, just relax on one of the two terraces at breakfast or watch the sun go down with a pre-dinner drink.

Kingswear has a vibrant community spirit, join the locals for a drink in one of the pubs or book a table at the restaurant, there's also a village shop for all your day to day provisions.

The property is a great base for exploring further afield… the fishing port of Brixham is just a short drive away or hop on the ferry and explore the winding streets of Historical Dartmouth with its excellent array of shop and restaurants. Stroll along the coast to Dartmouth Castle at the mouth of the river and take a break at the tea shop.

Recently refurbished Sunset Cottage has a contemporary coastal style décor. Furnished in blues and whites with the odd splash of red here and there. This really is a very comfortable holiday home for families or a group of friends. The views from the decking areas over the River Dart and out towards the Britannia Royal Naval College are quite spectacular!

Front door opens into the living room: 2 seater blue and white stripe sofa, two cream armchairs, coffee tables, (binoculars are strategically placed on the windowsill to watch the coming and goings on the river) bookcase with a good supply of books, local information and games. A feature fireplace. TV console with flat screen TV, DVD player and a selection of DVD's. Cupboard with ironing board, airer and coat hooks.

Archway through to kitchen/dining: country style kitchen with wood worktops, fridge with a freezer compartment, built in cooker with electric four ring hob and extractor hood, washing machine and dishwasher. Large country farmhouse style sink, microwave, kettle, toaster. Dining table and four chairs. Door to outside space at the rear of the property.

Master bedroom: Located at the front of the property, is a spacious room with a large window with views of the River Dart. Kingsize cream wooden frame bed, wall mounted spot lights, chest of drawers, built in wardrobe, full length mirror.

Bedroom 2: Next to the family bathroom, two 2'6 single beds can zipped together, bedside table with a lamp and a wardrobe.

Bathroom: Family bathroom between the two bedrooms, white suite with hand basin, mirror above, bath with a brand new wall mounted electric shower, WC, vanity storage cupboard and chrome heated towel rail.

Please note: The property is approached via 78 steps.

Outside Space: Sunset Cottage has plenty of outdoor space - there's a 2 level decked terrace at the front which has prime position for looking out onto the River Dart and Dartmouth Royal Naval College. At the back of the property, through the kitchen, there is a courtyard with another bench and a washing line.
