  • "In the visitors book, the owners, invite suggestions for improvement."

    We keep returning at least once a year and have only one suggestion to make which is that summer-weight duvets are provided during warmer months, thus giving visitors a choice between the existing 10.5tog duvets and for example, 4.5 tog.

  • "We’ve stayed in several of the Dart Marina properties with Coast and Country over the last 15 years and this has to be up there with the best."

    Some of them are in need of a refresh but this one is utterly superb. It’s clear the owners are keen to impress guests and make us feel as comfortable as possible. The property felt fresh and welcoming and instantly you feel at home. Impossible to ever tire of the view! We will most definitely return to this property again soon, we won’t feel the need to look anywhere else. Really well done!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 42 Dart Marina and are hoping to return again."

    The property was lovely and most comfortable. We have no complaints whatsoever. The only things I would mention are that the door was little difficult to unlock. Once we had mastered the technique by pulling the door towards you then that was fine. The other thing being that the doorbell did not work. It just meant that when my husband went out on a few errands without the key he could not alert me to let him in and had ring my mobile phone. These are not complaints just a couple of things which may need a little attention. I certainly left things in very good order before we left, i.e, disinfecting the rubbish bins, wiping out the fridge and washing all of the oven trays. Not that we had used them because we did eat out rather consistently. It was lovely because of the situation of No.42 we did still have a small view of the river. Most enjoyable and thank you again because we would happily return.

  • "Hi, We felt it was a great place to stay."

    It is very well equipped. The beds are very comfortable. Pillows not as comfy and the duvet was strange as it was two single ones put into the cover sideways but that really didn’t detract from our stay. Lovely and quiet but that could be the time of year and so much to do both in Dartmouth and nearby. The only thing I have marked the cleanliness bit down was I felt the bathroom floor were sticky. A helpful point is when you have the main lights in the left hand bedroom as you look at them on full they flicker badly. All in all a lovely place to stay. Thank you.

    Lovely big beds and the bathrooms were great. The open plan living and kitchen area was really spacious and a pleasure to sit in and the view from the Juliet balcony was lovely. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed. The location was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • "The apartment was great."

    Sadly the fridge is rather small and needs replacing as the freezer section does not work. The frost builds up very quickly as you cannot close the door. This happened in apartment 45 as well when we stayed there last year. We mentioned this last year and this year. The response was that the previous occupant did not close the door properly. Unfortunately the fridges are old. We stayed in the apartments at least 15 years ago when they were relatively new. Fridges don’t go on forever!!!!

    Thank you for your comments on the fridge. In view of these and other comments on the fridge and need for a freezer, we are happy to say a new & larger fridge/freezer is now in place. Property Owner

    Lovely views with a modern and simple layout for a grown up family of 4. Beds split as requested and oven cleaned, thank you. The only improver would be a more thorough pre-clean vacuum.

  • "We were perfectly happy with Sykes in general, However on arrival we were early and it started some light rain."

    At 20 minutes to four we found ourselves near your office and I decided to call in to see if we could get the keys early. I was advised that they didn't know if the cleaning had been finished and that we should go to the Marina, park the car in the alloted space and walk back. It seemed to me that if the cleaning wasn't finished the cleaner may well be parked in our alloted space and walking back in rain also wasn't too appealing and I had to be a little forceful in requesting that this be checked now while I was at your office. The office staff were pleasant about it and did as I requested and we got the keys early. By the time we got in the appartment it was 4 pm anyway and I shouldn't have really had to force the issue. The appartment was generally well cleaned and quite satisfactory but the oven was far from that and we had to do some cleaning before we felt it could be used and even then we bought a roll of kitchen foil to place food on as it really needed a deep clean. Even then, when the oven was in use it emitted an unpleasant odour which appeared to be a mix of differant foods that it had previously hosted. We also noticed in other reviews that the condition of the oven had been previously mentions which doesn't instill confidence. Although the description does not state there is a freezer when paying the top end of the price range it is normal to expect a freezer, especially when the fridge is also smaller than average small fridge with only two selves and the top section taken up by an ice box. If we had been a family with children we could have been in trouble. Never the less we really enjoyed our stay at Dart Marina and were very comfortable at number 42. We would deffinately use Sykes again.

    Thank you for your comments. We are sorry you had a difficult start to your holiday with getting access to the property. The cleaners have been informed about the oven and, in addition, we have arranged for the oven to be cleaned with a professional oven cleaning company shortly to rectify any remaining problems. Regarding the comments about the fridge we are looking at whether there is space in the property to provide a small freezer. We are glad, however, you enjoyed your stay and were very comfortable in No 42. Kind regards the owners. Property Owner

  • "Dartmouth is a beautiful location but can be busy during the day."

    However, 42 Dart Marina is away from the hustle and bustle in a quiet location with beautiful views from the living room over the river Dart. All amenities are close by with the added bonus of a wonderful flat walk from the Marina to Bayards Cove a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday close to the sea.

    Thank you for your kind comments on our property and we fully agree that Dartmouth is a wonderful holiday location Kind regards the owners. Property Owner

  • "Access is at the rear and lift light was not working (total darkness) Oven base needed cleaning En suite floor not cleaned Some glasses need replacing The original booking was for June 2020 which had to be cancelled due to COVID, carrying it forward to May 2021 resulted in an exorbitant 16% increase in the charge for the week."

    The marina and parking are good.

    Thank you for your comments. The issue of the lift light was taken up with the Dart Marina Hotel and has been rectified. Cleaning issues have also been taken up with those concerned and the glasses provided will be checked and restocked as necessary. Regarding the price increase since last year, Coast & Country Cottages set fees depending on market conditions. One of the reasons for higher costs this year is provisions for Covid compliance. We hope you had a good holiday and look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards the owners. Property Owner

About the location


Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
