All-in-all this area offers so much to those who reside here. We have the benefits of a coastal town, the amenities of Plymouth close by (yet still having the river boundary) and beautiful beaches and rolling countryside are within a few miles. Several villages such as Kingsand / Cawsand and Downderry offer quaintness and character with their communities and old pubs etc. Dolton Property Consultancy are proud to serve this area!!
