    The Paignton and Dartmouth Railway terminates in Kingswear, providing visitors with the opportunity to climb aboard a classic steam train and watch miles of rolling South Devon countryside float by on a seven-mile ride to Paignton. The coast surrounding Kingswear is some of the region’s most beautiful, dotted with quaint fishing villages, long, sandy beached and secluded, rocky coves. The River Dart is also a magical environment, best explored on one of the steam boats which run regular tours. A stay in a Kingswear holiday cottage would be incomplete without a stroll to the village’s most distinctive landmark, the imposing 15th century artillery tower of Kingswear Castle, on the edge of the village. For a pint of local ale or a good pub lunch, try the Ship Inn or the Steam Packet Inn. Across the water, in Dartmouth, you’ll find excellent cafes and restaurants, including Bushell’s Riverside, known for its fresh seafood, and Café Alf Fresco, which is known for serving delicious breakfasts and lunches, prepared with good, local produce.
