  • "Really nice 4 story property!"

    Very close to town center and pub at bottom of stairs. Would 100% stay again. Property needs a bit of TLC though and the downstairs lounge is cold in winter. All the heat goes upstairs could do with a curtain. Few things to fix. Curtain master bedroom and clean window. Master sink not draining. mold in bath master bathroom. frying pans all bent in middle, missing some kitchen utensils, top balcony floor needs cleaning and gullies emptied so not dripping below, door is difficult to open. Gutter down pipe leaking seems to of been wrapped together with elec tape. garden decking rotten on curved edge so wobbles. did have maintenance out as bedroom tv wasn't secure. I guess as end of season these will be seen to over winter.

    Firstly, we apologise for the issues you encountered and hope that these did not spoil your holiday. Our cleaner for many years has had to stop work due to ill health and we are having some teething problems with a new company. All the matters you listed have been drawn to the attention of our agents and should be rectified quickly. Thank you for your business and we very much hope that you will come back soon.

  • "Comfortable, clean and spacious."

    The views as expected were fantastic with the whole of Dartmouth harbour spread below you. A very nice week thank you. Our negatives were that there was really no explanation of rubbish disposal. The two guides said the other would detail! And there were no bin bags for towels and sheets, we provided our own. I did mention to a member of staff who phoned me that the bathroom washand basin could do with unblocking as it drains only slowly. Also no protective mattress covers on our bed or one pillow. However none of these detracted from our enjoyable holiday.

    We are glad that you found the house clean and that you enjoyed the space and the views. We will ensure that there is a clear explanation of the rubbish disposal. The requirement to strip bedding was a Covid precaution and should have ended some time ago. Coast and Country believe that they may still be texting this requirement by mistake - they are investigating. The missing protectors are being replaced and the basin drains are being attended to. We are very sorry that these annoying details were overlooked but are genuinely grateful to you for bringing them to our attention. John & Mary French Property Owner

    We would return! We had a heatwave week, so all in all a fantastic week.

  • "This is a really lovely holiday home with beautiful views over the Dart and looking across to Kingswear."

    The house was well equipped with comfortable beds and great facilities. It’s spread over 4 floors which, together with three levels of terraces/balconies, actually allows everyone to have a bit of space if they want it. We liked just how close the house is to the town centre but without any loud noises (except for the seagulls!!!)

    Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your visit. Although the house looks small from the street it is a bit of a Tardis - and our main reason for buying it (many years ago) was the view. We hope that you will come back again and become one of our loyal guests who return year after year. Above all, we hope that you have happy memories of your time in Dartmouth. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property, location and views."

    High standard, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom and very comfortable beds. The outside area was overgrown on arrival but got rectified the same day, so was a minor plumbing problem. The middle terrace from the kitchen requires TLC and a deep clean and the removal of dead plants. We sat on the top terrace, which was much nicer with amazing views over Dartmouth and enjoyed looking at the sailboats and listening to the seagulls. The street leading up to the property is very narrow and steep and our car could only be brought up to unload bags, as double yellow lines. We didn’t use the garage, as too small for a bigger car but the owner provided a parking permit for the central car park. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay as a family of 4 with two dogs and would recommend the property for its quirkiness. Our girls particularly enjoyed the lower lounge for privacy with its own big smart tv and two comfortable leather sofas.

    Thank you for your review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the property and its views over the river. Apologies for the overgrown garden. In summer everything grows very fast in Dartmouth and our gardener had been on holiday. Fortunately he returned just in time to tidy things up! Property Owner

  • "Wonderful property with spectacular views."

    Great location in the heart of Dartmouth.

    Thank you so much for your review. We have been enjoying that view for over 20 years - and so have our guests. We originally chose the house because of the view. Whatever the time of year, whatever the weather, whether it is day or night - there is always something to look at on the river. Property Owner

    Stayed with 3 grandchildren and dog. All thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Note for owner :- Low heat setting on Tumble Dryer not working. Light pull switch in upper bathroom sometimes has to be operated several times before it worked

    Thank you for your feedback. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for alerting us to the problems with the lights and the dryer. We will arrange for the lights to be fixed and for the dryer to be repaired or replaced. Property Owner

  • "The tv in the downstairs lounge did not have any signal and also the cold tap in the kitchen drips."

    We had an amazing stay in your gorgeous house and I think it’s the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The views are just amazing from every floor and the house is fully equipped and has everything you need. We had a lovely week and hopefully will be back one day. Thank you.

    Thank you very much for pointing out these two issues. I am sorry for any inconvenience these caused you. We have arranged for both to be repaired. Coast & Country is a very efficient agency and would have arranged for repairs during your stay, but I know sometimes guests would prefer not to be disturbed during their holiday. I'm really glad that you enjoyed the views and hope that you will return one day soon. Property Owner

  • "What an amazing stay!"

    As you walk into the house you are greeted by the view over the estuary and what a view! The house is like a home from home with stunning views from 3 of the 4 floors. This property has everything you need from super comfy beds, modern bathrooms and kitchen and 2 options of lounges- perfect if you have kids and they want to watch something different on TV. We also loved the pack describing the area and all rooms of the house had clear instructions on operating TV’s, cookers etc. We thank the owners as this really made our stay in lovely Dartmouth even more of a pleasure, WE WILL BE BACK!

    Thank you very much for this review. It is always good to know that other people feel the same way about Dartmouth, the house and the view that we do. We would be very pleased to see another repeat booker. When families return year after year we feel reassured that we are doing something right! Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the heart of the bustling tourist town of Dartmouth, in the sought-after county of Devon rests this remarkable four-storey holiday home, 13 Above Town.

With outstanding views across the rooftops to the River Dart and toward the sea beyond, 13 Above Town is idyllically positioned for a coastal retreat.

Marvel at the vibrant pink exterior of this striking holiday home upon arrival before kicking off your shoes as you step over the threshold and enter into the hallway, providing a handy spot to store your belongings and beach-going essentials away from the main living areas.

Follow the hallway through to the sitting room resting at the rear of the property, flooded with natural light streaming in through the towering patio doors and home to a sumptuous seating area gathered in front of the TV, perfect for settling down and catching up on your favourite show following an action-packed day.

There is a generous balcony through the patio doors boasting spectacular views of the river (including the ferry and the steam railway) and, beyond the castle, the sea.

Descend the stairs to the lower ground floor where you'll find the open-plan kitchen/diner, beautifully-appointed with a contemporary interior and fitted with a range of modern amenities; utilise the facilities provided to prepare a heart-warming meal for the group before gathering together at the dining table to indulge in the fruits of your labour as you recount the days adventure.

In the warmer months, take your experience outdoors with a spot of alfresco dining on the balcony, with the stunning backdrop of the tranquil waters of the River Dart.

As the evening grows darker, escape the excitement and head downstairs to the lower garden room where you can delve into the pages of a captivating book, or venture outdoors for a sociable seat in the private garden, and toast a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday under the canopy of the stars.

When sleep calls, you'll find the first of three bedrooms conveniently located on the ground floor, home to a single bed along with a pull-out, full sized single trundle, perfect for sleepovers for the little ones, or climb to the first floor and choose between a king-size with yet more river views and a twin (can be made into a kingsize on request), each benefiting from their own smart TV so you can catch up from the comfort of the covers.

In the morning, kick-start your day with an invigorating rinse in the shower, or add a touch of luxury to your stay with a soak amongst the bubbles in the elegant bathroom before heading out to explore your surroundings.

Centrally positioned, a short walk from your doorstep will bring you into the hustle and bustle of Dartmouth, where you'll find a fantastic selection of amenities, such as a handful of boutique and high-street stores along with a delicious selection of eateries.

Watch the world go by as you savour fresh fish and chips with a view across the water at Dartmouth Harbour, immerse yourself in the town's fascinating maritime history, home to the famous Britannia Royal Naval College.

Dartmouth Museum is an education in seafaring, or discover the remarkable workings of the RNLI at the Visitor Centre Dartmouth.

Hire a cabin cruiser and sail the waters of the River Dart, or board a passenger ferry and travel to the nearby village of Kingswear where you can embark on a two-footed adventure along the South West Coast Path toward Kingswear Castle and Brownstone Battery.

Pack up your bucket and spade and spend a fun-filled day at the Blue Flag award-winning beach of Blackpool Sands, where you can paddle the shores, feel the sand between your toes as you soak up the sun with your favourite book, or for the hands-on members of your party, why not try your hand at kayaking or rafting?

With all of this and more, be sure to choose a stay at 13 Above Town.

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.
