About Shaun Moore
The house is owned by 2 friends (Ellie & Shaun) who met at University and have been friends for over 25 years. Many happy holidays have been spent in Dartmouth over the 18 years that we have owned the property. Shaun lives in Wiltshire and Ellie lives in Lincolnshire.
Shaun Moore purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Shaun Moore chose Dartmouth
We fell in love with Dartmouth after spending several holidays here and bought the house on a whim when we saw it in the estate agents window... when prices were more affordable! It needed a lot of work and we spent several years doing it up and extending to create the terrace and parking. We love the house and the town both in the busy Summer and equally in the quiet out of season periods.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love walking and visiting the nearby beaches and beautiful countryside. Kipper Lodge is well located in a quiet part of town but is very convenient for the shops and many restaurants....all are within walking distance so quite often the car doesn't go out all week!
Check-in: 3:30 PM
Check-out: 10:30 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Jewel of Dartmouth
We stayed for a week in October. The house is well equipped, clean, convenient to access all in Dartmouth and very comfortable. The owner has furnished and accessorised to a very high standard and it felt very luxurious, but still very homely so you can relax and enjoy.
perfect place for us!
Lovely home, wish it was mine! Brillant location 5 minute walk into the centre of Dartmouth. The photos online do not do this home justice. Very clean and well stocked even essential items like salt, pepper cooking oil and sugar, teabags were provided.Normally you have to bring your own to rented homes.
Lovely terrace which we had barbecues and sat out and read. Great to have a car parking spot, although very narrow road to access the house.
Would definetly stay here again when we next return to Dartmouth.
Excellent location, beautiful house, great base for exploring South Devon
Beautiful house, well furnished, excellent location. Easy walk to all the local amenities. Only draw back is the access is very tight, if you have a wider car beware. This is only a minor thing, we found plenty of parking around the Dolphin pub (short walk away). Overall would love to spend more time here.
A fantastic break!
The photos do t do this property justice, very comfortable and well equipped. Location meant we could park up and only had a five minute walk into town. Owners very helpful and caretaker attentive, not that we needed him. We will definitely be booking again next year!
Kipper lodge is excellent, we had everything we needed a family of seven, the beds were fabulous. Ideally situated for a walk into town.
After a tight squeeze to get to the lodge, we opened the doors and wow!! The lodge was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The lounge had a beautiful bay window with chairs placed to overlook the lovely view. A few steps down into the kitchen which is well equipped with everything you could need. Then the icing on the cake, is the terrace that leads on from the kitchen which overlooks Dartmouth. Many an afternoon spent enjoying the sunshine. The lodge has a homely relaxing feel, so you do not feel you have to get up and out every morning. It is a short walk into the town of Dartmouth which is lovely and full of interesting shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Also plentiful boat trips to surrounding areas. We took the ferry across to Kingswear and then the Steam Train up to Paignton, which was well worth it. We were very sad when we closed the door to say goodbye.
Dartmouth is on the beautiful River Dart Estuary. There are small beaches within 20 minutes walk of the property at Dartmouth Castle. The South Devon heritage coast is 5 miles away with Blackpool Sands which is a beautiful family beach or Slapton Sands with its wide open bay.
Totnes is the nearest mainline train station but there is a steam train which goes to Paignton. Exeter Airport (1 hour), Plymouth (45 minutes) and Bristol (2 hours).
Dartmouth Town: 5 minutes walk
Blackpool Sands: 15 minutes drive
