  • "This property had everything going for it."

    The view across the estuary to Kingswear is just stunning. We loved sitting on the balcony watching life go by on the river and the street below. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, tastefully furnished/decorated and well-equipped. The 2 bedrooms each have a comfortable king-size bed. Dining area, living area and kitchen all work well together. Plenty of electrical sockets and the lighting is just right. We loved our one-week stay in September and will hopefully return.

  • "Hi the property is just amazing and would hope to stop again the view is stunning, we had plans to go off and visit other towns but the car just didn't move."

    Everything to hand in Dartmouth. Even sat looking through the rear windows at the comings and goings. If you like a place to sit and relax and just unwind look no further !

  • "The cottage is tastefully decorated and furnished."

    The pictures and display articles are lovely. Much careful thought has been given to the provision of the excellent equipment including books and games for rainy days. The lack of a separate handrail, apart from the banister, made negotiating the twisting stairs to the second floor difficult for a person with even slight mobility issues.

  • "We had the best holiday in this gorgeous apartment."

    The rooms were spacious and light yet cosy at the same time. We wanted for nothing. On arrival everything was very clean and tidy. The views from the balcony were breathtaking where you could sit and watch the world go by. We cannot fault this place and will definitely be returning.

  • "The only problem about this property is the balcony."

    Very difficult to keep it clean because of the seagulls. Therefore we were unable to sit out at anytime.

  • "2 Embankment House is in a perfect location in the centre of Dartmouth with lovely views across the Dart from the living/dining area."

    It is above Rockfish, but despite the restaurant being busy most days we were there, we didn't hear any noise - apart from the sound of gulls! The flat has been tastefully modernised and is well-appointed, with everything we needed for our stay. Both bedrooms have comfortable, king-size beds and sufficient storage. There is a good size bathroom with a powerful rain shower and plenty of hot water. The kitchen area is fairly small, but well-equipped. The lock on the outside door is rather complicated and took some getting used to, but we managed to get the hang of it by the end of our stay. We would be very happy to stay in the property again.

  • "Wonderful location which would be good in all weathers as you have a great view of the river, even from inside."

    The balcony was a real joy. Stylish and incredibly well equipped cottage. We forgot our binoculars so a pair of those would have been nice - otherwise perfect.

  • "The apartment is situated in a prime location overlooking the River Dart and the balcony provides the opportunity to sit for hours enjoying watching the world go by."

    Also perfect for a spot of evening fishing and enjoying chats with passers by. We found the property to be very well equipped (Gordon Ramsey would want for nothing in the kitchen!), clean and beautifully decorated. The car park voucher is a gem, although we were able to park outside the apartment on several occasions Had a wonderful week enjoying the relaxed pace of life in Dartmouth and the surrounding area. The street front door lock has an unusual locking device (detailed and simple instructions in the apartment) and whilst we mastered it, the occupants of flat downstairs didn't. So we sometimes found the door unlocked, but it wasn't obvious to passers by. However the apartment door has a secure lock on it anyway, so we never felt unsafe. Great touch that the agent both rang and emailed during the stay to check everything was okay. Already looking to book for next year.

  • "Overall this is an excellent property with a very high standard of decor and facilities."

    There were some cleanliness and maintenance issues which we have advised Sykes under separate cover but they do not detract from a very enjoyable holiday spent here at this apartment. Would most likely return again.

  • "We really appreciated the high standard of fittings, comfort, cleanliness and attention to detail."

    The central location, close to all that Dartmouth has to offer - shops, restaurants, river trips - as well as fantastic river views make this a top spot.

  • "Delightful location & view."

    Property very well equipped, and all of a good standard. Some more information of facilities such as Waste disposal unit (couldn't find how to operate this - couldn't get rid of small items we had rinsed into it), bathroom floor heating, bathroom mirror light (found how to operate on last day, by trial & error. People may want to be informed there is a bottle bank for re-cycling located in the main car park. Finally, when arriving at the property, the directions say that "The apartment is located above Rockfish restaurant on the right hand side." Actually, the entrance door is on the left hand side (facing) and has a number 8 above the door. This would be helpful to know, as it is difficult to park outside and being able to quickly identify where the entrance is would be beneficial.

    Stunning views over the Dart, and a treat to see the ‘train of lights’. The apartment is very well equipped, warm and comfortable, however the biscuit coloured carpets are in need of a good clean. Would definitely recommend this holiday apartment.

  • "The apartment was simply stunning."

    It is incredibly well furnished and the kitchen is stocked with all the items you need and more. There was only 2 of us staying but the apartment could easily cater for 6 if there were more beds! The bed was really comfy and the bedding was of high quality. The location is amazing, we often got take out and sat on the balcony to eat rather than in the restaurants on the street below as the view from the apartment was better than if you were sat in them. We also never heard noise from the apartment or restaurant below which was something we were concerned about before we arrived. The parking permit was also extremely useful and could be used in some other car parks nearby to Dartmouth which was great. The only very minor comment I would make is that when we arrived the hot water had been turned off so the shower was cold. Once we’d figured out this was it we didn’t have any more problems but I’d suggest that the hot water is left on for future guests. Overall, a great stay and we’d love to come back again in the future!

    The shower now has a long curtain so there was no problem with a wet floor. The views from the balcony were lovely, the location was perfect, and we were able to park in the road outside as it is de-restricted from October. I would recommend this without reservation.

  • "We thought the balcony was exceptionally lovely and in general the apartment inside was at least as good as described."

    The kitchen was really well kitted out and everything needed was provided. The sitting room and dining area had stunning views. We loved being in the middle of the town and only took the car out once or twice in week. The walks from Dartmouth and Kingswear were wonderful. However we would comment on the shower which isn't really fit for purpose. Two issues: one already commented on by others is the lack of a shower cubicle/ door. The water runs all over the bathroom floor even with care using curtain. In addition it is fine having a large shower head above but no alternative lower shower head so hair wash necessary with every shower.

  • "The property is generally well equipped however there are a few issues that could easily be rectified."

    The flat could do with a fan in each bedroom during the summer and there were no tongs in the kitchen. The bathroom is built to a luxury standard but it has a poorly fitted shower curtain that causes water to leak all over the bathroom floor. Apart from these issues, we had a lovely stay and the flat was in a great location with lovely views of the river. The parking permit was very useful not only in Dartmouth but also when we visited Slapton beach. Close to the co-op, takeaways, pubs and restaurants.

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.
