About Claire Kettle
I live with my 15 yr old son in a small village near York. Although I am from Yorkshire, my late husband originates from Devon where he was brought up and we still have family in the area so over the years we have been regular visitors to this beautiful part of the country. Dartmouth is our favourite place to relax and enjoy time with family and friends.
Claire Kettle purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Claire Kettle chose Dartmouth
As a family we love many parts of the South West of England but we have fallen in love with Dartmouth. With it's historic background and superb position at the mouth of the River Dart it appeals to us in a variety of ways. There are plenty of fine bistros, bars and restaurants amongst the winding streets and an array of specialist shops. The Estuary is a delight at any time of year where there is always some activity on the water whether its boats cruising down to Totnes, Ferrys taking visitors to Kinsgwear or simply people sitting on the Embankment watching children crabbing for the afternoon. It is a town with plenty to offer without having to use a car, however there are many attractions within a 20 mile radius so a car is useful to keep most visitors happy.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment is in the heart of Dartmouth on the level only one street away from the Estuary. It is spacious and well presented. A real home from home with all of the home comforts you expect plus wifi and Smart TV

Great location only a minute from the harbour.
Comfortable, warm, very convenient location. Right in the centre of Dartmouth, very close to the lower ferry. Kitchen was sufficient for prepping and cooking everyday meals. Wide range of options for eating out within a couple of minutes. M&S food adjacent to car park. Lidl and Sainsbury's at top of hill. The parking permit for main carpark (and all others in the South Hams) was very useful. Without it, parking would have been an absolute nightmare. As it was, a short (5 min) walk along harbourside got to car with great views on the way. Well equipped, good clean shower and bathroom. Caretaker responded very promptly to give information about a slight problem. Only suggestion would be to swap washing machine for a dishwasher!!!
Thank you Grahame - so pleased that you had a good stay and for your suggestion regarding the dishwasher - under consideration - thanks. Claire
A fabulous stay!
Loved staying here! The apartment couldn’t have been more central which was a definite bonus. No problems at all with parking as a Permit for the main carpark was included. Very clean and tidy and had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to our most favourite place, Dartmouth
Thank you Lisa, so pleased you enjoyed the stay and look forward to hearing from you again. Claire

Excellent apartment, great location
Spent a week there with the family of 4 in late August. Very pleased, good location, right in the middle of town. Comfy and ideal with 3 bedrooms, all reasonably sized. Highly recommended.
Thanks Mike. Great dealing with you and we look forward to you staying with your family again. Claire
Comfortable Apartment, conveniently placed.
Although on the second floor, the Apartment was well equipped and comfortable. The Parking Pass that was included in the stay, was an added bonus.
Superb Holiday in a Perfect location
The flat is all you'll need and more in Dartmouth, we all had a fantastic stay here and cannot recommend it highly enough. We will most definitely be booking again and again. We love Dartmouth and have stayed here for over 20 years every summer but never stayed in the centre. This was a fab location and the flat was clean and very comfortable. It was very spacious. Well equipped and all appliances worked brilliantly.
Recommend to all!
The famous blue flag beach - Blackpool Sands is only 15 mins drive away with a super cafe/restaurant. Slapton Sands offering a 3 mile stretch of pebble beach is a further 5 mins away whilst Dartmouth itself boasts two small coves (Castle Cove & Sugary Cove) close to the Castle within a 15 min walk. Bigbury on Sea beach is a sandy beach within an area of outstanding natural beauty just over 30 mins drive.
Totnes is the nearest railway station which is approx 12 miles from Dartmouth. There is a good hourly bus service to Dartmouth from Totnes. Exeter is the nearest airport (1 hour) but it is a good idea to have a car to enjoy the many wonderful places in the surrounding area.
Within a 1 min walk you can catch a ferry from the Embankment over to Kingswear (5 min ferry ride) & the famous Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway. There are also ferry's to Dartmouth Castle, the pretty village of Dittisham, 'Greenways' the home of Agatha Christie and a variety of other trips up the Dart Estuary. There are many beautiful villages within a 20 mile radius and numerous stunning walks in the area.
M&S food, Co-op and cashpoints on the doorstep. Tourist information centre, museum and cinema in town centre. Larger Sainsburys supermarket located on the edge of town, 5 mins drive.
