About Claire Jones

My husband is from Kingswear and we love this part of Devon as do our two children. We spend two weeks every summer here and visit as often as we can.

I did the house up myself and it is our only holiday house. We are very proud of this house and we just want anyone staying to have a wonderful holiday and want to come back again and again.

If you decide to stay with us we very much hope you enjoy your stay.

Claire Jones purchased this house in 2008

Why Claire Jones chose Kingswear

We bought this house because we love Kingswear and Dartmouth and visit as often as we can.

There is so much to do and see.

We love walking and we love the coast and views of the water not to mention good food and not having to drive from place to place.

We love the fact that from this house you can walk to everything and do not actually need your car at all once you are there. The views are just stunning from the house I remember lying in bed one morning and thinking that is a gorgeous yacht and it looks as though it is coming in to the house!

There really is so much to see and do with coastal walks, heritage sites the castle and Agatha Christies house, the steam train and an endless choice of places to eat and shop.

You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Wonderful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We found the owner to be tremendously helpful and accommodating. The house was lovely with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Once we arrived we didn’t need our car. Everything is easily accessible with lots to do. We travelled with 2 adults, grandparents and children aged 7,12 & 15, plus dog! The ferry outside is noisy in that it bangs when it arrives, but that was part of the character of staying in the house. We enjoyed just watching the goings on from the window. If it’s not the noisy ferry, then it would be the noisy seagulls! But what’s a holiday without a seagul?

All in all I would highly recommend this property and we would love to return.

Very comfortable and well equipped house right on the waterfront with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our short break very much. It was perfect for our family get together. Spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It was lovely to be right on the waterfront and enjoy the stunning views of the River Dart. You get used to the sound of the ferry coming in next to the house. I enjoyed the short ferry trips back and forth between Kingswear and Dartmouth. Lots to do and places to visit if you desire. The owner Claire was very helpful throughout the booking and leading up to our stay providing us with some helpful information prior to our stay. Would recommend.

Beaches available along the coast in both directions. You can drive or take the steam train which goes to Paignton and Goodrington Sands. There are magnificent coastal path walks from the house to sandy coves like Sugary Cove and famous beaches like Blackpool Sands 4 miles away.


Nearest Airport is Exeter or Bristol. Best train station to use from London is Totnes (20 mins drive away).


You are in Kingswear a small village with good pubs and restaurants. You are next door to the Post Office and the village shop is a 3 min walk. The Marina is a 2 min walk away. Dartmouth is a short ferry ride (the ferry is on your doorstep) and is packed with wonderful shops and restaurants.

Further Details:

In Kingswear the local shop provides all the essentials plus fresh bread and other local produce. The Ship is a great pub with good food and welcomes children. Dartmouth has endless wonderful shops and places to eat. Some highlights are Alfresco's for brunch and a great atmosphere, Rockfish for fab fish and chips. The Seahorse if you want a very special night out. Try and also take the little red ferry to the Anchor Stone Cafe in Dittisham. There is a great day trip from the doorstep; steam train to Paignton followed by double decker bus to Totnes followed by ferry back to Dartmouth. Dartmouth Castle is fascinating and a great place to have a picnic you can walk of get the small ferry from Dartmouth. Paignton Zoo is amazing fantastic Penguins. The owner is happy to give you lots of helpful ideas.
