  • "Beautiful location, stunning property, well equipped and very clean."

    Thank you Kevin & Bev

  • "We took the apartment for two weeks along with the house."

    The apartment is accessible from the house but access is only available if a door is unlocked. In the apartment you are totally independent and unaware of the house. The owner was very nice and very helpful while the apartment itself was very spacious, clean, comfortable, and well equipped. It is ideal whether for one or two people or used as an annexe to the main house. Delightful location - yes the track to it is bumpy but easily managed either on foot or in a car.We never experienced any problem in the two weeks that we stayed there.

  • "We had an amazing time."

    The apartment was lovely and in an idyllic spot, standing on the balcony there were stunning views. There was a large enclosed garden for Winnie to have a run around. We found some beautiful sandy beaches that allowed dogs. ( Salcombe North Beach and Goodrington North Beach ). Would highly recommend and will definitely be going again.

    Really nicely furnished and very clean and tidy .The apartment had beautiful views and in a beautiful setting.It was in an ideal position for exploring Devon . I would highly recommend this place to stay . The only problem was the road leading to the property which had large potholes in the track .However , we managed ok but anyone with low suspension may have problems.

  • "Only marked down on cleanliness due to dog hairs, but it does state clearly on information that dogs are allowed so not really a problem."

    The access road whilst generally OK could be an issue with some lower slung vehicles.

  • "We loved our stay at Lower Norton Apartment and would definitely come again and recommend it to others."

    Bed and settees are very comfortable. It's a lovely big, light, bright, airy space with beautiful views. We were able to cook adequately and appreciated the welcome pack of goodies. As others have said, the approach lane takes careful, slow driving, but our old CRV managed it ok and we didn't find it a problem. In any case, plenty of local lanes are narrow with hedgerows overhanging passing places, so Devon may not be the ideal place for anyone precious about their car! We did have to take our dogs out on their leads for their comfort breaks as there's no enclosed garden seperate from those staying in the property beneath. Maybe to help this, a nightlight could be placed in the lane outside? Ideally located to visit Dartmouth and other local places of interest. Good food shops and decent pubs for meals out are also easily reached from the apartment.

  • "Light switch in bathroom very temperamental."

    Kitchens bit cramped but functional. Plenty of room in the rest of the apartment. Garden great for our dogs. Balcony had bird guano all over it so I couldn’t use it as going through chemo at the moment. Other than that a very nice long weekend stay.

  • "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.

  • "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.

  • "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!

  • "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.

    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.

    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.

  • "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.

    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.

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.

A relaxing location in South Devon.
