  • "A stunning location with an amazing view."

    If it were mine I would rearrange the living room such that the sofa looked out rather than in; similar for the front bedroom where I’d put the bed facing the view. But I’m being picky here.

    The quality and great location of the apartment, and the top service levels provided by the Dartmouth office of Coast & Country, made for one of the very best UK breaks that we have ever experienced

  • "Fabulous location, right in the middle of Darmouth, and overlooking the river, with (small) terraces to stand out on."

    The property was beautifully firnished, and very well equipped. Has three bedrooms, but it would be a bit of a tight fit for 6 people, and the third bedroom is pretty dark. We raised a couple of maintenance issues with the agents - a loose stair tread, unreliable light switch in the entry hall, and a shower that was too hot and we couldn't persuade it to a cooler setting.

  • "We had a lovely stay with the property being in the middle of Dartmouth and so close to everything with amazing views."

    The facilities were very good with a well equipped kitchen and bathroom. A few points to note and it does say in the listing is the number of stairs going up to the apartment is quite a few but we were fine with it. There is a draught from the balcony windows in the bedroom which kept my husband awake at night and the lounge needs another comfortable chairs to make it perfect for 6 people as I of us had to sit on a hard chair. Otherwise a perfect base for a group of 6. Agent process was very smooth also.

    We have already booked next year.

  • "Very efficient and friendly key pick up."

    Best equipped self catering I have stayed in. All kept in a very good and clean condition. The only downside is the light all night from the street - maybe some blackout blinds? This would keep the heat in better too. The third bedroom was noticeably colder than any other room. Beds are firm.

  • "The property has great views of river, is well equipped and spacious."

    Central location easy reach of restaurants etc and circa 100 metres from allocated car park. Although we were here at peak summer and the car park/town was very busy during the day, we did not have a problem parking after 4. I would have rated the property as a 5 but unfortunately I have had to reduce rating due to building work going on in the flat below, which wasn't mentioned in the listing.

  • "Lots of steps, no Parking but don't let that put you off."

    The property is a real home from home. The view from (almost) every window is stunning. Watch the hustle and bustle outside, the beautiful ever changing river never grows boring. The flat is very comfortable and has everything you need and more. Highly recommended

  • "Great location, well equipped well decorated and comfortable, suits 4 adults very well, if 6 it would be a squeeze ."

    Because the location is so great, and with everything going on you felt guilty for relaxing and reading the paper. However we did rebel once or twice and just watched and appreciated the views over the Dart to Kingswear. We were lucky with the weather which always changes everything , but the sunshine made it a fantastic holiday. Publish if you want to

About the location

DARTMOUTH

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.
