  • "This was our second stay at Anchor Watch… I was disappointed after our first visit to find this year that upon arrival the oven and dishwasher had been left dirty maybe and oversight by the cleaners apart from that the overall cleanliness of the apartment was good."

    The twin bedroom furniture needs replacing ie the beds are broken also the wardrobe is unstable. I am sorry to have to write these comments! Because the main bedroom and living space is good and the view amazing. We still had a very good holiday and would stay again if these issues were resolved.

  • "Lovely property with an amazing view of the Boat Float."

    Very comfortable lounge however beds were a bit uncomfortable for us. Back bedroom would benefit from a mattress topper when made into a double bed as it seemed this was only connected by 1 latch which caused a bit of a chasm between the two beds. Didn't have any issues with the stairs to the property. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book again.

  • "Lovely apartment with the most fabulous view!"

    Everything was in great condition….bathrooms and kitchen were modern and well-equipped. Only downside was the entrance staircase, which definitely needs tidying and cleaning! Parking for unloading was also challenging. Central location made it perfect for restaurants and bars as well as ferries and buses. Would definitely return.

  • "This first floor apartment within an old property has been updated and appointed to a very good quality and standard."

    Nice accommodation and a good comfortable bed aiding a good nights sleep. Situated in the heart of the town with superb views from the living room windows across the water.

    ! Everything was as stated...large warm living room, well equipped kitchen, comfy clean beds, central position in a great town ( I do love Dartmouth). Handy shops, bakers, restaurants what more could I say...Oh yes, very helpful staff at Coastal & Country agency, right on doorstep as it were!

    The view was amazing , and parking permit a bonus . We will definitely be booking again. Lovely helpful staff at coast and country offices also need a mention.

    We would love to be able to return at some point in the future.

  • "We have stayed at Anchor Watch a number of times, the last time in June."

    Then we had supplied tea towel , hair dryer and oven glove. None of these were in the apartment this visit, not sure why these small items are no longer available, not as though they are expensive to supply.

  • "Lovely property to stay in - if anything the photos probably don’t do it justice!"

    We were wondering whether the noise would be a problem being so central, but glad we took the gamble because it was nice and quiet in the evenings even at the height of summer. The parking arrangements are great, and being so close to the office to pick up the keys made things really simple as well. You won’t get a better view of Dartmouth to enjoy with your breakfast, and Anchor Watch is the ideal base for exploring south Devon - thank you for a brilliant stay! (Just a couple of private notes if they are useful as feedback: The extractor fan in the en-suite didn’t seem to work; and we know it’s a communal area, but we were worried when we first opened the door from the street as it seemed a bit messy - certainly not the case once inside the apartment which was lovely and clean. Oh and a hand towel for the kitchen would’ve been perfect.)

  • "Beautiful apartment, bigger than what we thought, so spacious."

    Furnished to a good standard. View amazing over looking River Dart from morning till night. Fantastic location, easy to pop in and out of apartment as so centrally located. The apartment was 100% fully equipped. Appreciated the bottle of wine that waited us too, very thoughtful of you.(noticed to the wine label was the same picture as hanging on wall) We didn't want to leave, such a relaxing holiday.

  • "Generally a very nice apartment."

    Only issues were: (i) a big selling point of the property is the window overlooking the harbour, but this was filthy - and whilst window cleaners cleaned adjacent properties they didn't clean this one during our stay; (ii) the electrics in the kitchen stopped working mid-stay, later tracked down to the circuit breaker kicking in during the middle of the night - suggesting that the electrics may need attention

  • "The flat is absolutely lovely and the view across the Boat Float and river to Kingswear is unbeatable."

    We spent a lot of time gazing out and relaxing. The flat was spotless and spacious, the way it's furnished was just right and the beds very comfortable. Excellent bathroom and shower room - and the towels were a good size, which isn't always the case. The kitchen well laid out and equipped although we would have liked a user guide for the washing machine. We couldn't have enjoyed our Christmas more. Thank you. Sue Dennett.

    The bus stops and ferry pontoons were just a very short walk away. There was a parking permit which was a plus as parking in Dartmouth is very scarce. There were good pubs, restaurants, coffee and tea rooms near to the accommodation.

The property

Tucked away in the vibrant town of Dartmouth on the western bank of the River Dart, Anchor Watch is a fabulous dwelling ideal for a couple or a small family of four.

Within reaching distance of the vast South West Coast Path, just a pleasant drive away from the stunning landscapes of the Dartmoor National Park, this attractive first-floor apartment is a wonderful base offering the very best of both the coast and countryside.

Turn on the eye-catching electric woodburning stove that sits proudly within the welcoming sitting room and allow yourself to sink into the plush corner sofa, relaxing with friends as you recover from an action-packed day spent exploring the local area.

Wander across to the bright white kitchen and discover a sea of essential appliances such as an impressive electric oven and hob, a handy dishwasher, and a washer/dryer.

Take a seat at the pretty dining room table and admire views of the harbour as you tuck-into a lovingly prepared meal, curtesy of the chef of the group.

Make yourself at home in one of the two homely bedrooms a twin (2'6") overlooking St Saviours Church, and a large king-size bedroom benefitting from a beautiful en-suite bathroom boasting a roomy tub and shower over.

Guests will also find an airy shower room with contemporary tiles and a walk-in shower, where you can prepare for the day with a refreshing wash whilst your towel keeps warm on the heated rail.

When you can just about tear yourself away from this restful apartment, be sure to pay a visit to the Royal Avenue Gardens or enjoy a relaxing stroll along the embankment, watching as colourful boats bob happily in the water.

Learn of the rich and exciting local history at the Tudor-style Dartmouth Museum and the 15th century fortress of Bayard's Cove Fort.

Take in the incredible views of the Dart Estuary from the imposing Dartmouth Castle, before descending to Sugary Cove Beach.

Continue along the South West Coast Path to Brownstone Battery and Berry Head National Nature Reserve, before taking a detour to the town of Brixham and indulging in a hearty lunch in one of the many charming cafés.

Embark on a fun-filled day for the whole family at Woodlands Family Theme Park and Torquay's Dinosaur World, or experience an animal encounter like never before at Paignton Zoo Environmental Park.

No trip to Devon is complete without a breath-taking hike through the Dartmoor National Park, home to the enchanting Hingston Hill Stone Circle and Norsworthy Bridge.

With so much to offer, it's little wonder that Anchor Watch is the ultimate setting for an unforgettable adventure in the South Hams area of South Devon.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
