“Breathtaking” is the only superlative to describe the views that greet you at the summit of the 40 step climb leading up to this magnificent and unique holiday home.

‘Totherside’ nestles amongst the tightly packed cottages that line the Kingswear hillside overlooking the River Dart towards Dartmouth.

The climb to the door soon forgotten as you step into the vast and tastefully furnished living room.

The distinctive glazed gable end of the house offers the most wondrous views over the river, past the glamorous vessels moored at the marina and across to the beautiful and picturesque Waterhead Creek.

There can be no better vantage point for Regatta Week, whilst you barbecue on the decking as the Red Arrows swoop beneath your balcony wowing the crowds in their spectacular annual display.

This luxury year-round venue will suit friends and families looking for a perfect holiday home to relax in supreme comfort. There are four tasteful bedrooms two with en suite shower rooms, the master bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a private river-facing balcony.

A children’s room, equipped with pull out guest bed and desk can double up as study if preferred. Two sunbathing areas and a sheltered timber deck have the river as a backdrop, with an enclosed patio to the rear providing safe play space for children.

A quick downhill jaunt will take you to the ferry, where a five minute trip across the river will bring you to the boutiques, cafes and fine dining restaurants that line the historic cobbled streets of Dartmouth.

The beautiful region of the South Hams beckon to be explored from this lovely location where an abundance of beaches, coves and pretty villages are all on your doorstep.

Less than 5 miles is the award winning Blue Flag beach of Blackpool Sands. Or if it’s a stomp across moorland to invigorate the senses, a walk on Dartmoor will blow away any remaining cobwebs.

For many however, relaxing in the soft leather reclining chairs watching the world go by at your feet is enough to shake off any stresses of day to day living. And as the evening shadows begin to fall over this ancient maritime town, the true pleasure of being positioned across the river becomes apparent, as the colourful houses of Kingswear are bathed in glorious evening sunshine and where sunsets and evening barbecues on the balcony at Totherside become the envy of all on the other side of town!
