  • "Amberley house was a great place to stay."

    It was very clean all through and very well equipped. We went in October so needed the heating, it worked well and the house was warm throughout. Hot was also good whenever needed. The house is at the top end of a cul-de-sac in a nice quiet residential area. The walk down into Dartmouth took about 15 minutes and was steep in places coming back up. We really enjoyed staying at Amberley and would definitely stay there again.

  • "Really clean and comfortable, had everything you could need to enjoy your holiday."

    Parking is a bonus, walk up and down from town is difficult and not for those with mobility issues but we're not too fit and we managed it. Recycling is easy if you read on the boxes & bag what needs to go in each one. Lovely view from the front of the house and you can see the steam train go past at the bottom of the hill. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

  • "Clear guidance on how to get there and access."

    Good range of equipment with detailed instructions. Very comfortable and roomy house. The walk to the town centre is steep but picturesque. Will return!

  • "A clean tidy, well equipped property."

    Pleasant garden. About 20 min. walk down a steep hill down to the town, The return walk - not for the faint hearted. A garden gate to the adjacent road would be ideal, a bus stop to the town is quite close. Only negative things - we experienced a blocked downstairs toilet, and a cheap Wi.Fi. Would recommend this property.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback after your stay at Amberly. All the points you have raised will be looked at by the owner and ourselves. Please note that if you had brought the blocked toilet to the attention of the local office, we would have investigated this straight away. I can confirm that this has now been checked and is all working fine. We hope to welcome you back to Dartmouth again. Property Owner

  • "The house was well furnished and spotlessly clean."

    Lots of facilities and plenty of kitchen appliances and a beautiful large garden with table and chairs. 4 bedrooms with lots of wardrobe space and a separate dining room to enjoy your meals. Lovely views of the yaughts and boats down on the river. A bonus having ensuite, family bathroom and downstairs loo. Also parking for 2 cars. It is on a steep hill and a hike up from the town. Not for elderly or disabled.

  • "We wanted something clean, comfortable and functional with space for all of us and parking, which it fulfilled."

    We are reasonably fit so the walk back up the hill was not too trying. However there are places you can park down in the town, especially if you only want to park for 1-2 hours. There are steps up to the front door which some might find difficult and there is a bit of traffic noise from the road behind. The beds are comfortable. An unexpected bonus for our 3 year old grandson was the view from the front down to the steam trains on the other side of the river. They announced their presence with a whistle.

  • "This is a spacious clean family home that is very well equipped and comfortable."

    The south facing garden with chairs and picnic table is great for relaxing. It is a very steep climb from Dartmouth so we walked down and got a taxi back for about £5, much easier! There are some lovely restaurants in Dartmouth but booking is essential. The attractions are fantastic with ferry trips to suit all needs. The beaches are a relatively short drive along very narrow roads but have spectacular views especially towards Salcombe. We will definitely return.

  • "Amberley was a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay."

    It was very clean and well equipped in a lovely quiet part of Dartmouth. Whilst it was a ten minute walk into the centre, the walk was enjoyable and it meant there was parking for at least two cars which was very handy. The garden was pretty and an enjoyable place to relax in. I would happily stay here again.

  • "The house was brilliant."

    It had everything we needed and was so clean and we would thoroughly recommend it. The only thing that would have helped is a gate in the back garden giving access to the road at the back of the house making it easier to catch and alight from the bus. This would have eliminated the need to walk up and down steep hills which was not a problem for us as we are both fit but would present a challenge to people with mobility issues, but this is more of a wish list item rather than a fault with the accommodation.

  • "Lovely house, has everything you need to make a great holiday in Dartmouth."

    We will definitely stay there again when we stay in Dartmouth. Just wish there was a back gate, as the bus stops into town, are very close to the house, but you have to walk the long way round at present. Not a problem for most, but, if you have walking difficulties ( like us oldies) it can be a problem, especially the steep climb back up to the house. we had to go everywhere by car.

  • "This is a lovely house in a quiet position from which it is possible to take a variety of day trips."

    We found it very well equipped and prepared with a pretty garden and easy parking. The directions are very exact and easy to follow. The Devon weather and Devon hills were a bit of a challenge but the coast path, Dartmoor scenery and local gardens (Coleton Fishacre and Overbecks) are so gorgeous that can be forgiven.

  • "Generally, position, facilities, property was acceptable."

    However, we wish to bring a couple of Issues we found that may help you. Entrance mat by front door is filthy, needs either throughly cleaning or preferably, replacing. To be met with the site of it every time we arrived ‘home’ was depressing to say the least. Didn’t want to walk on it in stocking feet!! Also, there were was considerable staining to the ground floor carpeting. Surely for the beginning of the season that cannot be right? Although the bedding was changed at the end of week one, which we appreciated, we were not told this would happen, or how. We were prepared to wash and change ourselves since we had no advice as to what arrangements had been made. Quite embarrassing for us and the lady ‘who does’ to confront each other on our return from town, not expecting ‘visitors’. Please mention such in your literature. We wouldn’t use this property again, although we intend to visit Dartmouth on a regular basis, we love the place

  • "The house is very comfortable, clean and well presented."

    The only downside was the lack of a door on the lounge. This meant sound from the tv or people talking, carried upstairs where people were sleeping. The location is ideal, a10 minute walk into Dartmouth although it is very steep hill on the way back up.

  • "Very nice cottage in good location, but let down but let down by a couple of things so does not get a perfect score."

    On the positive side, it is comfortable, clean and in a good location. it offers almost everything you could need. Close to town, but it's a very steep hill to navigate on foot. The only negative is the showers. The ensuite shower is very underpowered, with the water dripping rather than flowing from the shower head - they need to install a pump. The shower in the bathroom is slightly better but both showers would benefit from a safety handle.

    Very well equipped house, luxious nice garden, quiet surroundings good basis for trips in neighborhood Dartmouth and close region is fantastic to stay Might be improved: -some pillows for chairs in garden -better shower head in both bathrooms (the economic/sustainable type of head did give just a limited amount of water)

  • "I booked the property at very short notice for a week away at the end of October with my husband and my daughter, son in law and 20 month old granddaughter."

    We have visited Dartmouth for many years and are truly in love with the place. We needed somewhere that catered for families and found the house comfortable and well equipped although, despite several comments from previous customers, there were no oven gloves. It was clean but there were rather a lot of cobwebs in the lounge particularly around the fireplace which was strange. The showers were extremely slow and inefficient, it may be that the water pressure is poor although elsewhere in the house the water flow was fine. There was also no equipment for babies such as a highchair, cot or a few toys which would have been helpful and could put off families with young children. We were also disappointed at the meanness in the supply of toilet rolls for a family property (no spares!) and expect a carton of milk for a cup of tea when we arrive.. However, there were many positives including its location, parking for 2 cars, garden, good heating system and well equipped kitchen. We really enjoyed our stay and would go to this property again with our family. It was well priced and with a few improvements would be excellent.

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.
