Self-catering accommodation in a real castle on the coast in Devon

It is a perilous drive to get there but once found you arrive at one of the most spectacular holiday homes in the UK. This is Kingswear Castle, overlooking Dartmouth Castle in Devon, which you and 3 friends or family (and dog) can hire to enjoy a uniquely spectacular location on the sea edge. There are big bedrooms with huge beds and dining rooms furnished in a suitably baronial style where you can spread out and live like knights and ladies from a time long ago. Get the weather right, and you can sip cocktail on the battlements in the evening and watch the yachts sail and the fishing boats bob by. Access a BBQ  and a few bottles of your favourite wines (careful going down the stairs later) and there will not be a better place to enjoy your evening meal. The local fishmonger for example can supply the most perfect fresh fish for your lunch or evening meal. The views are spectacular and the location absolutely stunning as you would expect for a building designed to defend the harbour.

This is a very different proposition to the run-of-the-mill self-catering accommodation you find in many parts of Devon – and can work out cheaper too. And the sounds of the sea with the unique castle atmosphere will create a holiday or weekend break a million light years away from a bog standard holiday cottage. As well as staying in this extraordinary place, close by are lots of pubs, restaurants, walks and cycle tracks.  And you are also right on the South West Coast Path if you want to stretch your legs
