  • "No 3 the pottery was absolutely perfect for us."

    It was clean, comfortable, with everything you could need for a relaxing break. Parking was great and on the same level as the apartment so no hauling cases and bags up stairs, with just one step up between the entrance lobby and the apartment. The location was fantastic with a pleasant stroll into Dartmouth to the left and a short walk to the castle to the right. With the walls being around 2 feet thick it was surprisingly quiet with no noise from the other apartments. It's really nice modern apartment in a great development of the old pottery building and would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

    Dear Ian Thank you for taking the time to leave such fantastic feedback. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at 3 The Pottery and the convenient but quiet location with a parking space! The Pottery building is very special with an interesting history and, of course, the apartment overlooks historic Warfleet Creek so you can watch boats go by from the sitting room. We do hope to be able to welcome you back or your friends and family for a first visit. Property Owner

  • "Chipped crockery chipped work surface, kitchen cupboards , worn in places, toilet seats moved, door handle in en suite broken( this was mentioned in visitors book two years ago) no mention in listing of the steps up to the property or steps in hallway, both without a handrail, important information for people who assume that a ground floor apartment is going to be access friendly!"

    Sofas look nice , but are very low, again not easy for someone with mobility issues. Beds were comfortable, view from apartment amazing, general position good, just needs a little extra TLC

    Thank you for your comments - feedback such as this is invaluable in helping us to improve and monitor. The view from the apartment across the creek is delightful and we’re pleased that you enjoyed this and also found the beds to be comfortable. With regard to maintenance issues, please be assured that these are generally dealt with by the Coast and Country / Sykes maintenance team as a matter of urgency as soon as they are reported to us. This is evident in the fact that the apartment consistently receives good reviews. The steps within the property have always been mentioned in the description but the small number leading from the communal hallway to the entrance to the property have not. The description will be amended to include information this as soon as possible. Property Owner

    Had to bale it out. Owner of no. 4 tried to help. Said the bath plug was duff (used rather different language), Bathroom switch only worked intermittently. Had to make use of a torch Tripped on damaged floor strip entrance to living room. A piece of strip became separated later. A further piece of strip was already missing. Dangerous. All of these faults were not new.and must have been known about. Why had they not been fixed. Not the standard expected. Apart from very slippery leather sofas, apartment comfortable, well equipped and warm. Lots of instructions to follow on leaving. Walk into Dartmouth very up and down. Could be tiring.

Please be assured that things such as this are usually dealt with by Coast and Country maintenance as soon as they are reported to us.

  • "The directions to the property were really helpful and it was great to have such handy parking It was such a lovely surprise to walk into this apartment."

    .the view over the river is really lovely. We had a comfortable stay..beds were great. The smaller bedroom is quite small. We just had one person staying it it but it would be a squash for two...despite the double bed. The walk down to the creek only took a couple of minutes and it is a great place to sit ..especially with a G and T in the evening. Lots going on as well which kept us amused. Our only problem was with the induction hob.. despite instructions it was temperamental even after someone came to look at it. However the kitchen was really well equipped and the fridge /freezer was very roomy. We had a great week.

  • "Great apartment with views of River Dart."

    Good facilities and finished to high standard. Only minor issue is related to using shower in bathroom no screen so you’ll need to be careful not to slip, be practical and agree with the other couple to use their en-suite shower.

    We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the views from the apartment across to the river Dart. (Great for boat watching!) Re the shower/bath situation, we find that visitors like to have the choice of a full shower (en suite to the main bedroom) and a bath in the main bathroom (with shower over). A non-slip mat for the bath is supplied, if required. Property Owner

    Parking at the apartment was very convenient and a decent sized space. The apartment is a good size, comfortable, warm, quiet enough (the sound of the owl hooting was a welcome surprise), and with a view across rooftops to the estuary. Bedrooms are on the small size, and you can hit your head on the wall cupboards if you’re tall, but the bathrooms are fine. The kitchen is well equipped but workspace is limited. If there were 4 adults these points may be more relevant, but for two of us we found the apartment very comfortable and would certainly stay again.

    Several items of rubbish were under there (which we removed) and thick with dust. The bed valance hasn’t been changed recently either as had several stains on it and thick with dust on back corners. There was a white residue over the bottom of one of the sofas where something had previously been spilt and had sprayed the sofa. The plinth along the bottom of the cupboards needed cleaning as had stains on it ( can see them while sitting on sofa). The property is nice but isn’t being maintained very well: toilet seat loose, most door handles need attention, etc. We had a plumbing issue when we arrived which was dealt with swiftly, thank you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, just some minor issues that need looking at.

    Toilet seat and door handle in the main bathroom were loose. The apartment would be improved by having a tumble dryer or washer/dryer as there is no facility for drying clothes should you need to. Having looked at availability for 2022 and the increase in rental charges l feel that the apartment ought to reflect those rises.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are so pleased that you liked the location of the property, it is in such a lovely spot. We have passed your comments on to the owner who has explained that they have looked into getting a tumble dryer but have been advised against it due to it being a possible fire hazard as the only space for it is in a cupboard.

    We really enjoyed the walk into town with its stunning views of the river, and appreciated the castle ferry for getting back to the jetty by the castle on the return journey, when we had shopping to carry. The apartment was in excellent condition, modern and well equipped. The parking space was much appreciated. We found the main room was a bit chilly when the weather was cold and wet, so weren’t sure that only underfloor heating was quite enough. It felt welcoming and comfortable, and we appreciated the bottle of sparkling wine that was left for us. The apartment was a great base for a week in Dartmouth. We loved all the ferry and boat journeys available, and the town is full of restaurants and cafes. The steam train trip to and from Paignton, was good fun, as was a visit to Greenway, Agatha’s Christie’s house just up the river. As a holiday home, No. 3 is hard to beat.

    Ideal for two couples who are active. Unfortunately, my wife is perambulatory challenged (needs a walker, wheelchair etc) and the three short steep steps inside the apartment combined with the three in the entrance hall of the building, challenged me more this time than last when negotiating them with the walker and/or wheelchair on her behalf. We provided our own "grab rails" for the shower; the smooth panelling made for ideal retention. So a really lovely apartment, ideally suited for a stroll to the castle and an interesting walk into town to get the newspaper. However since then I have learned that C&C do have a few "accessible" properties which I will consider another tie

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.
