Private access to shared beach

As seen in today's South Hams Gazette.

Kingswear sits on the east bank of the River Dart opposite the historic port of Dartmouth and home to the Britannia Royal Naval College. The village is popular with the sailing community and offers excellent marina facilities, deep-water moorings, local shops and the Royal Dart Yacht Club.

A seasonal steam train service operates to Torbay and the village is linked to Dartmouth by passenger and car ferry services operating continuously throughout the year. Churston Golf course and sandy beaches are easily accessible.

Located along a private road in Kingswear is Brookhill Cottage, a charming period property. Deceptively spacious, with some of the best views in Kingswear. understood to be at least two hundred years old and possibly a former chapel, parts of the original structure remain. 

Brookhill Cottage has extensive majestic gardens and woodland, in total in excess of 2 acres, and private steps down to a shared beach.  There is permission for a running mooring.

Both the living/dining room and the master bedroom have their own terraces from where to enjoy the panoramic views over a cup of coffee.  Brookhill Cottage has a large kitchen/breakfast room and 5 additional bedrooms.  The property is complemented by 3 garages.

Kirsty Cook, Sales Manager, Dartmouth said “Brookhill Cottage is in a stunning location with that all important water access and permission for a running mooring."

Brookhill Cottage is offered for sale at £1,500,000. For further information please contact Marchand Petit’s Dartmouth office on 01803 839190, email dartmouth@marchandpetit.co.uk.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
