Great week in Dartmouth
A lovely open plan cottage in a super location. We really liked the layout and decor and very quickly felt at home. Situated in a really good location with easy access to everything Dartmouth has to offer but also tucked away in a quiet undisturbed spot.
Bed was comfy, bathroom is good with a nice shower and short bath. Kitchen is fully equipped and has good appliances.
We would definitely stay again.
Getting to the property does involve a stepped path so won't be suitable for everyone but well worth the short climb if you are able.
very comfortable,well equipped,quiet, likedNO PETS.

Holiday at home.
Lovely holiday cottage, very well positioned and very well equipped. A little tired in places, dirty rugs and wallpaper lifting on ceiling in double bedroom. Unfortunately the house next door is being renovated so work commences at 08.09 and doesn’t finish until 18.00 so quite noisy.
Dartmouth one week stay. A really enjoyable few days with wonderful coastal walks.
Great location being just a short way ( up gentle steps ) from the estuary. Kitchen well equipped and bedrooms, with one double bedroom and one with two single beds worked well. M and S food was less than five minutes walk away and it was really convenient having the parking permit for the parking lot again less than five minutes away. Also having two well equipped bathrooms was a real luxury. It was a little different sitting on stools to eat but we adapted! Thank you. We really had a perfect time and hope to visit again.
Beautiful gem by the sea
We loved our almost two week stay at Dartmouth. Lots to do with and also without a car. We even managed to fit five people in the cottage although er recomend to stay within the given maximum of 4. But therefore you don't really need to worry about the seize of the cottage.
Great place to stay in Dartmouth
A lovely little house with everything you need. Tucked away on 'Browns Hill Steps' but really close to centre of Dartmouth. Parking permit was perfect as carpark is very close by. Two modern bathrooms in this property made this ideal for a family of four.
Dartmouth itself has two small coves (Castle Cove and Sugary Cove) close to its Castle, which is a 1 mile walk (or short boat ride) from the centre of town. The famous Blue Flag beach of Blackpool Sands is only 15 minute drive away with a super cafe/restaurant, whilst Slapton Sands, offering a 3 mile stretch of pebble beach, is a further 5 minutes away. Bigbury on Sea beach is a sandy beach within an area of outstanding natural beauty and is just over 30 minutes drive from Dartmouth.
Nearest airport is at Exeter (40 miles). Nearest railway station is Totnes (12 miles away), with a bus service to Dartmouth. National rail services also to Paignton with bus service to Kingswear. Whilst the town itself has lots to offer the holidaymaker, a car would be recommended if you wish to explore the surrounding area.
Dartmouth is situated in the unspoilt South Hams, in Devon, and the area is a wonderful destination, offering something for everyone. You can wander around Dartmouth’s quaint, cobbled streets, visiting its galleries and individual shops and cafes, enjoy a boat trip out to sea, or down river to historic Totnes or Dittisham. Take the ferry across the river to Kingswear and catch a steam train ride on the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway. A walk, or boat ride, to Dartmouth Castle affords wonderful views of the town, the river and the coast beyond and the Britannia Royal Naval College perches on the hill providing a majestic backdrop to the historic streets and alleyways within the town itself. You may wish to while away a lazy afternoon watching the activity on the busy waterfront, or try your hand at crabbing off the Embankment. Dartmouth enjoys many great restaurants and pubs, or if you want to eat in, the town has an M&S food and a Co-op store as well as delicatessens and bakeries to tempt you. The town enjoys a cinema/arts centre, museum, gardens, tennis courts, park with children’s play area and a tourist information centre which can provide information on local attractions, places to visit, and events taking place in the town and surrounding area.
On our doorstep is the award winning shingle beach at Blackpool Sands (4 miles away), with the 3 mile stretch of pebble beach at Slapton Sands a further 5 minutes’ drive beyond that. The National Trust properties of “Greenway” (Agatha Christie’s former home) and Coleton Fishacre (an Arts and Crafts style house built for Rupert D’Oyly Carte) are close by. Dittisham, Totnes, Dartmoor and the South Hams and Torbay areas are easily reached for those who want to explore the surrounding area. Woodlands Family Theme Park is on the outskirts of the town, open March to November.
