  • "Another lovely stay at no."

    5 Dartmouth House. A warm and cosy apartment with parking a real bonus. Well equipped kitchen with plenty of crockery for four people so only needed to put the dishwasher on once a day! Good to see the return of the Food Festival. Very helpful staff in the Dartmouth Coast and Country office. Thank you.

  • "Lovely to leave the car behind and be able to walk into Dartmouth."

    The apartment was well equipped and mostly clean (the lounge floor had not been cleaned before our arrival). Mattresses on all beds were uncomfortable and the noise of passing road traffic and people talking as the walk along the pavement outside from 6am very noticeable and intrusive. (Maybe some secondary double glazing would help). I have stayed in an apartment on a higher floor in this house previously and although you heard the traffic it never woke you up or encroached on what should be a relaxing break from home. Unfortunately based on these factors I would not stay in this apartment again.

  • "Fabulous accommodation, close to all amenities."

    I would definitely recommend and we will be coming back to Dartmouth, it's such a beautiful place. Parking is very difficult if you arrive early. We were fortunate to have a parking space with our accommodation and would only book accommodation in Dartmouth if it included a parking space in peak season.

  • "We have stayed here a few times now and the apartment could not be better."

    The location alone makes No5 a superb apartment so when you add the fantastically roomy and comfortable accommodation and the safe underground parking you know you are onto a real winner. We can honestly say for a pet friendly accommodation this has to be our absolute favourite.

    Flat was clean, comfortable, spacious and most of all very central to Dartmouth town. Very pleased all round.

  • "This is the second time in this apartment, it's very clean, comfortable and convenient, and equipped with everything that is needed, especially the kitchen."

    The basement parking is a real bonus, no trawling for a safe parking space. There is a little traffic noise but the benefits of this apartment more than outweigh this. The staff at Coast & Country are very friendly and helpful, and always ready with any assistance or advice needed, and we have already booked it for next year.

  • "We had a lovely week in a very comfortable, clean and most convenient apartment."

    The car parking space is a god send in Dartmouth! If I had to find something negative the only things I would say is that the mattress slopes a little away from the middle and you find yourself sleeping on the edge of the bed! Also, as there are only the doors at the Juliet balconies and no other windows it is not possible to have a window open at night and I do like to sleep with a window open. That said neither of these things would stop us returning to this lovely apartment. I would like to add two special thank you's : one to the staff at Coast and Country who got a spare set of keys to us so quickly when we locked our set in the car! And the second to the owners of 5 Dartmouth House who thoughtfully left us the beautiful Christmas hamper.

  • "The photo of the sitting room furniture in the online description does not now match the furniture currently in No."

    5. It is now a very low backed sofa with no head support, which we found uncomfortable & had to use a pillow for support. The tiles in the shower room need a thorough clean, which we have already spoken about to a member of staff on our departure. Apart from the above, we enjoyed our stay very much, the apartment was clean, with plenty of crockery & cutlery, & the heating was very efficient. The bedrooms were large with plenty of hanging & storage space. We knew it would be noisy from the road outside, as we have stayed several times before in different apartments, but some people may find it annoying, just something to point out, perhaps. All in all, a very pleasant holiday in our favourite place, Dartmouth!

  • "An excellent apartment in a good location."

    Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Inevitably there was some traffic noise first thing in the morning, but we expected this and it didn't cause a problem for us. We particularly enjoyed our trip to Coleton Fishacre (National Trust) and our walk along the SW Coast Path.

  • "We visited 5 Dartmouth house for one week during August as a party of 3 adults one of which has limited mobility."

    We found the apartment spotless and very comfortable with plenty of space which helped as one of my party uses a scooter and a walking frame. The lift from the parking area was very good for accessing the apartment, but the parking space was very tight especially for a larger car. The only down side we found was as we had beautiful weather during our visit it was very stuffy. Even though there were two French windows one lounge one master bedroom it was just too noisy to keep them open and unfortunately builders merchant Travis Perkins is a few steps away, this led to heavy delivery lorries unloading and loading from early morning. We feel the apartment would benefit from some air conditioning or even a couple of fans would be helpful. The opposite car park was no problem at all. Even though this is a beautiful apartment we wouldn't choose to stay again.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback following your stay at 5 Dartmouth House. We are so pleased to hear that it suited your group's requirements, and that mobility was not an issue in this property. We will pass on to the Owner your comments regarding the possibility of providing some fans for guests use next Summer. We hope that we may welcome you back to another property in Devon soon.

    the black mould in the shower was filthy needed a good clean ,the extractor fan over gas hob was had grease on the controls.very disappointing for the cost of flat

    We were so sorry to hear that the property was not presented to a satisfactory standard on your arrival. We work very hard with our housekeepers and property services team to ensure that properties are properly presented, and we are sorry that on this occasion we failed to meet your expectations. We also request that guests contact us during their holiday so that we have a chance to address any issues, so it is disappointing we did not hear from you as we most certainly would have been able to rectify this for you. We hope that despite this, you were able to enjoy your stay in Devon. Property Owner

  • "As previously mentioned, the apartment is lovely and well equipped, and perfect central location for Dartmouth (without any hills to climb to access the property which is rare in Dartmouth!"

    ); the added bonus of parking makes a massive difference, so would definitely stay there again! It is however worth noting that it is noisy at night from the road so it may be worth taking ear plugs (both bedrooms face the road), and when the weather is good it gets very hot, so with the Juliet balcony doors being the only windows, makes it very difficult to get any air flow at night (we took travel fans). The two single beds are on the hard side so if we stayed there again we would take mattress toppers as both teens complained they were uncomfortable. These are minor points so I wouldn’t let that put you off staying at the property, just be prepared! :)

  • "This is a lovely apartment with top quality fittings and all that you need for your stay, however the under cupboard lights in the kitchen were not working which meant preparing your food in a very dim light as the only natural light was from the Juliet balcony doors in the same room."

    Also the toilet in the en suite bathroom was not fixed to the floor and tipped forward if you sat on it, luckily there are two bathrooms so we did not need to use this one ! It is also unfortunate that the design of the building meant that there was no way to ventilate the open plan lounge/diner/kitchen other than opening the Juliet balcony doors and the same applied to the main bedroom and this was not practical being on the ground floor and near to the traffic. As we were lucky to enjoy some lovely hot weather this was a bit of a drawback. Unfortunately some roadworks were taking place right outside our window so this did not help either but obviously this was unavoidable for the owners. Having said all this the apartment is in a great position for all that lovely Dartmouth has to offer and of course having your own parking space is a great bonus. I would still recommend this property and trust that Coast and Country make sure the issues mentioned are addressed.

    5 Dartmouth House. Everything spotless, bed comfortable and well equipped kitchen. As usual the staff at Coast and Country Dartmouth were friendly and helpful. One slight negative - we couldn’t seem to open the windows in the main bedroom and sitting room. Maybe they had seized up after the winter! Another enjoyable stay in Dartmouth.

  • "An excellently equipped apartment."

    Chosen for its accessibility to Dartmouth town centre and that it had a guaranteed parking space. We were with a ten week old baby so we were not really going anywhere - just strolling around the town, going on a steam train to Paignton (from Kingswear) and a boat trip to Totnes. It was on the town ring road and we knew it would be potentially noisy - but not too bad even with the windows open. If there was a criticism, it was the inability to get any real air into the property, even with the windows open, so it was a bit stuffy and this was when the day temperatures were only 20-22 C.

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.
