The potholes are so bad kept hitting Exhausts. But we did enjoy our stay Reviewed by RussellJun 2022 "Spacious apartment with adequate kitchen." Good shower. Comfortable bed and two large sofas. Nice big TV and also a smaller TV in the bedroom. Welcome pack outstanding. Nice balcony with beautiful view. Balcony furniture needs cleaning or updating. Minimal furnishings or styling but you have what you need. I would suggest some more blinds as I imagine it gets baking hot in the height of summer. It was a bit strange to have to take all our rubbish and recycling away with us. The entry road is challenging but doable. Massive garden across and down a bit from the property. Good for dogs. Overall really clean, spacious and comfortable loft apartment. Reviewed by SharonMay 2022 "Pillows need replacing." They were as flat as a pancake. We acually had to buy two new ones. The blinds in the main lounge kept flying back up. An extra ittle table at the end of the settee would be good, as we were worried about putting down a glass of wine on the carpet. The balcony needed a good clean,as there were cobwebs everywhere. But I quite understand if cleaners left them for the swallows feeding under the eaves. Other than that the apartment is stunning , very spacious, and very comfortable. The welcome pack of food was a lovely surprise. It was situated in a wonderful location with amazing views from the small balcony. .We would come back again, if the driveway was not so bumpy. But don't think the drive down the lane to the apartment did my neck any good. Definitely need a 4x4 or a land rover. Reviewed by ChristineMay 2022 "We really enjoyed our week in the Lower Norton Apartment." It was nice to arrive at a clean, comfortable and spacious property that enjoyed amazing views over the surrounding countryside. The welcome pack was thoughtful thank you! Our dog loved the enclosed garden big enough to throw her ball. We explored the surrounding towns / villages, and walked to Dittisham from this property, which had lovely views en route to a nice pub by the water. The access farm track didn’t bother us - took it carefully, and avoided the few potholes. We would definitely like to return! Reviewed by GaryMar 2022 "This is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle." You feel as if you are tucked away in the heart of the countryside, yet it is only a short drive away from Dartmouth, and even closer to two supermarkets (Lidl and Sainsburys). The apartment was very warm, comfortable and spacious, with a lovely view from the little balcony. Perfect for one or two people. My dog absolutely loved having her own dedicated, giant, grassy garden to sniff and play in. It had a table and seating there, which I am sure would be lovely to eat at in the warmer weather. Sue was very welcoming and helpful and nothing was a problem. The welcome basket was very generous and I really enjoyed munching my way through the contents. Thank you. The bedroom was spacious with plenty of storage space for clothes and bags. And a very comfortable bed. You will see other visitors have commented about the access road, Yes, it is narrow, bumpy and twisty and you need to drive slowly and carefully, but my Renault Scenic coped fine, even fully loaded. So please don't let that put you off. I am very happy to recommend Lower Norton Farm Apartment to you. Reviewed by VanessaOct 2021 "Absolutely stunning place with beautiful views and great for my puppy too!" Only niggle I had is that the drive down to the apartment was a very steep, rough and bumpy trail which I wish I had been pre warned about as my car only just survived it! Other than this I couldn't fault anything. Reviewed by DanielleSep 2021 "Beautiful and quiet ." Nice apartment and had good facilities . Only issue would be the drive for small cars but apart from that the location is stunning . Reviewed by NickySep 2021 "We will love to revisit." Apartment is gorgeous with plenty of room. Greeting pack was excellent. We felt safe. Thank you for letting us enjoy. Reviewed by AdrianAug 2021 "The apartment was lovely, great views." Kitchen was very basic but was ok for me as my friends were staying in the main house so I could use their facilities. Access road was impassible without the use of a 4x4 or on foot. Had to park my car elsewhere and rely on friends to ferry me back and forth. Reviewed by MargaretAug 2021 "Apartment was perfect in cleanliness, facilities and welcome basket of essential items, milk and butter plus goodies!" Extremely spacious with large TV which proved invaluable during Wimbledon week. Road to apartment quite rough and bumpy being well off the main road. for us, perfect as visiting family close by. Reviewed by WendyJun 2021 "Welcome pack was a nice touch, kitchen was fully equipped." Nice views out over the area. The track down to the house was OK for my car, just needed to be careful in a couple of places. Would stay there again. Reviewed by HelenSep 2020 "This apartment is spectacular." The views from the balcony are lovely and although you are so close to a large town it is incredibly peaceful. The apartment was immaculate and incredibly roomy. The welcome pack of milk, wine, scones, clotted cream, cereal, cake and tea coffee and sugar were delightful and were all used. The owners were easy to contact to deal with. This apartment was central to everything we wanted to do and I would highly recommend the Steam train and Paddle steamer trip from Dartmouth/Kingswear although I would recommend using the park and ride as parking is difficult in Dartmouth. A couple of small details, although it is only for two people a couple more plates and more cutlery would be helpful. The main issue is the track to the property. We kept bottoming our car (which isn't particularly low slung) on the uneven surface. If the track could be sorted we would definitely be booking again. Reviewed by JeniSep 2020 "Lovely apartment in a beautiful spot." Very quiet and peaceful. Be prepared for a very bumpy approach to the house . . . . the bridle path is about half a mile long. Check where to park as neighbour may object. Welcome pack was a great idea and scones and clotted cream were delicious. We would love to return to stay at the apartment and explore more of this lovely part of the country. Reviewed by KathyAug 2020 "Fantastic apartment, huge with amazing living space." Great tv in main room and bedroom. A massive thank you for the welcome pack Reviewed by AntonyAug 2020 "The apartment was absolutely lovely and the welcome package was a lovely surprise." We thoroughly enjoyed our stay would recommended it to anyone who wantd a quite but convenient place to stay. Reviewed by TonySep 2019 "A day before we received a text from the owners advising how to get there, a bit about their farm, that there was an enclosed garden for our exclusive use and giving a contact number if we needed to get in touch, and not to hesitate to do so." The welcome basket was phenomenal. The property was warm, sunny, spacious, comfortable and clean. The view from the balcony was lovely and it was warm and sheltered. The situation was peaceful, close to Dartmouth and was on the bridleway leading to the path to Dittisham. The owners had no problem with us bringing our two pets so we had a wonderful relaxed holiday with our pets. Reviewed by KarenSep 2019 "Superb Apartment in a glorious setting." Welcome pack has to be experienced to be believed! Do not be put off by the fact it is down a bridle way. Our SUV managed it comfortably. Owners go out of their way to ensure your comfort and wellbeing. Reviewed by KateJul 2019 "A wonderful place to stay, beautiful apartment stunning views, peaceful we had a wonderful time there."
