  • "A lovely cottage only minutes away from the centre of Dartmouth."

    Very peaceful and cosy. Very clean and well presented. We had a very restful break and even though we've been to Dartmouth many times we actually found other parts of it to explore. The cottage is up a quiet, narrow lane with little outside noise. The only noise we heard was the steam train whistle which was actually really nice. The parking space is a rarety in Dartmouth but make sure you are confident at parking as the space is tight as is the lane up to the cottage. Please be aware the cottage is up a hill or steps and being over three floors wouldn't suit everyone. Those who are fit and able and can park, will love the cottage and the surrounding area. We would certainly book again.

    . the cottage was spotless. Well equipped and comfortable. Ideal location. Did not need the car. Parking space was a bonus, although a little tight when car parked next door. Would highly recommend and would not hesitate to return. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • "Cottage is very comfortable with everything you need."

    We did find the wicker sofa quite large for the room and thought two smaller sofas probably would work but that's our personal taste. DVD player listed but we didn't find it. Premium having parking in Dartmouth. The road to the cottage is extremely narrow so you need to be confident driver especially when parking. Walking to the town is fine but the walk back could be difficult for some as it is steep in places. Great location for visiting surrounding areas with steam trains and boats as a choice if you would rather not drive. Many eating and drinking places all within walking distance. We can recommend Singing kettle for lunch and Floating bridge for evening meal. Dartmouth is a beautiful place hope to be back in the future.

  • "If I were judging the property it would be an 'excellent'."

    Beautiful house and super situation so near to the front/town. Only two things were a challenge : no oven gloves or tea towels (dangerous and a nuisance) and the so called parking area. The narrowness of the street though charming made it virtually impossible to get the car in IF AND WHEN THERE WAS ANOTHER CAR in the area! No mention of that in the description!! My car got scratched by the car of the owners in the opposite apartment coz they couldn't park while our car was there. My main gripe is with Coast &Cottages; : a) had to chase several times to get the final details to get in the house b) got cut off when we attempted to book the second week which was suddenly free c) when picking up the keys we were largely ignored by the staff in the office and d) I utterly object to stripping beds at the end of my stay - that's what we pay extra ,money to an agency for! Likely to avoid Coast and Country from now on.

    Courtyard cottage is lovely, 100 % completely equipped and located in a perfect spot of Dartmouth - quiet, but nevertheless central. We enjoyed our stay very much with excellent opportunities for walks. The Private parking place in the courtyard is really helpful as well. Top recommendation!

    It has been nicely maintained. Would have liked some cleaning products in bathrooms if i had known there would be any i would have bought some with me, as like to keep things clean. But that is a minor issue. Great to have parking and very close to the town in a quiet road. The road is narrow in parts so be sure to check your car is able to fit!! Our Suzuki Vittara was no problem.

  • "The perfect Christmas in a beautifully presented home."

    Delightfully decorated for Christmas, warm, cosy, comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished throughout. Ideally situated too. It really was home from home. We didn't want to leave. We had the most wonderful Christmas at Courtyard House & would highly recommend it. Our only tiny niggle was that the smart TV was old & consequently we couldn't watch some of the Christmas programmes we missed on i player etc. Catch up TV just wouldn't run & there was a lack of main smart TV channels. (The on line description of Courtyard House needs updating as tea towels & oven gloves were provided & there was no CD player). Very minor niggles which did not spoil out lovely holiday & Christmas. We would return at the drop of a hat! Paul & Gill

  • "This is a really nice place to stay."

    Very well presented and appointed, comfortable and roomy. Really good for two people but with accommodation for four. The street is very quiet and has good access to Dartmouth. When they state that Clarence Hill is narrow, they mean it. We didn’t touch the car all week, which is no bad thing.

  • "Everything was wonderful apart from a bannister on the first staircase would be a good idea."

    We took our 84 year old dear friend who is registered and is very unsteady on his feet so he was a bit worried about going up and down, a bannister would have provided more support and stability. Apart from that we found the property absolutely wonderful and would happily go back again sometime in the future. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The property is perfectly located a couple of streets back from the main area which means peace and quiet when needed. The street is as mentioned narrow, but manageable with due care. The space is fine too. Just keeps you on your toes if you’re not used to negotiating small areas! The owners have set the property out well and you can tell they have thought about pretty much everything. Thank you, it was just what we needed.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Courtyard House."

    Everything required was provided (except a Pizza cutter!). We were a little concerned as we approached the property by car as a road sign indicated '6 foot wide'. It needed careful negotiation to access the designated parking area, and ours' is not a big car. We travelled around the area and enjoyed the South Devon scenery although sadly it rained on each day, but it was warm, and it is Winter!

    From the moment we got our keys and parked our car outside the cottage - wow! Parking in Dartmouth at any time is difficult so to have this was a real bonus. Everything was as expected and more. The owners have made a real home from home with a well equipped, well thought out living space on the ground floor and two, practical, stylish ensuite bedrooms on the floors above. It's an easy walk from Courtyard House to Dartmouth town centre and key side with all its attractions. There is an M&S food close by and plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops to suit all tastes. All in all a delightful stay in one of the best spots in Dartmouth.

  • "Fifth time at Courtyard so obviously love the place."

    Only criticism is that every year have found the duvets very heavy with no other choice. Also, as Dartmouth is expensive to eat out, there isn't enough smaller Pyrex type dishes to use in oven. Also it would be handy to have all the re.cycling information on display as we would like to help as much as possible but every County has its own procedures. On the positive side it is accessible to the town and its facilities and the office is handy for any personal enquiries. Because of the service we have received over the years we hope to spend many more years at Courtyard House.

The shower was good and both bathrooms well designed with everything you need. Parking is always a bonus in dartmouth so that was most welcome. The balcony was lovely to sit out on although maybe the furniture could be changed there as a little rusty and not too comfy to sit on (although there were seat pads) This was the only little complaint. It was nice to have tea/coffee and biscuits on arrival, however a small milk would be good as after a long journey a hot drink is most welcome. we would definately recommend this property.

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.
