  • "Though the listing states the property is on a steep and narrow hill, we didn’t expect it to be that steep."

  • "Had a great stay."

    Comfortable beds. More than enough towels provided. Got really really fit from all the steep up hill walking. Absolutely loved the position & views. Will definitely recommend it! Thank you

  • "We had a great stay at Crowthers cottage."

    A very cosy place to spend a few days. We would definitely recommend to our family and friends. The cottage had everything you could need. Beds were very comfy and everything was spotlessly clean. Great location. We kept the car in the Carpark so had some great post Christmas workouts walking up and down the hill. Found a flight of steps that made it a little easier too. Would love to come back for a second visit.

  • "An absolutely stunning property in a beautiful location, plenty of nice places to eat nearby and gorgeous views."

    The facilities are perfect, we were a family of 6 and the layout was perfect for us. The hill really is a hill but don't let that put you off.

  • "This was a lovely cosy cottage with lots of quirky features."

    Comfortable for 5 or 6 but be warned the stairs are steep for young children or frail or vulnerable adults. Beautiful views over Dartmouth town and harbour. The cottage is accessible by a very steep and narrow road for unloading and loading luggage but otherwise leave the car in the town car park. We kept ourselves fit walking up and down the steep hill to the shops! The cottage is just a short (steep) walk from the town centre where there is loads to do for all ages: steam train trip, lots of boat trips, museum, escape room, a wide choice of pubs, restaurants and cafes. There’s also a very nice heated outdoor swimming pool and a very nice indoor pool and gym at the leisure centre. Lovely walks with superb views. A nice walk or boat ride to Dartmouth castle and the coast. The castle is managed by English Heritage and there are activities for all ages and it’s well worth a visit. We loved Dartmouth! A friendly, peaceful and pretty town.

  • "Loved our stay, the cottage was great."

    Staff were very efficient & helpful when we had a query. Can’t remember if the listing mentioned how steep access to the cottage is, which might have been a problem for others?

    Our stay was comfortable and relaxing. We will be back to visit again.

  • "Lovely cottage and exceptionally well stocked."

    Comfortable beds and clear instructions on how to use appliances and I enjoyed my stay there. However, although we were made aware that the area is hilly, I feel that it might be appropriate to say that it and the property are not really suitable for elderly or disabled.

  • "A wonderful cottage well equipped and a beautiful location with good views."

    It was a shame the loose toilet seat was not fixed when reported. The courtyard could be improved for a nicer seating outside.

The property

Nestled in the historic town of Dartmouth in the South Hams area of Devon, is this charming, three-bedroom cottage, Crowthers Cottage.

Originally built in 1750, the cottage has recently been renovated to a high standard whilst retaining a wealth of original features and character.

Enjoying a stunning location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boasting superb views overlooking the town and River Dart, This cottage at 16 Crowthers Hill is a marvellous base for a group or family of six looking for their next adventure to Devon.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where the chef of the group can look forward to rustling up mouth-watering meals, with the help of the electric oven and hob, fridge, and a handy dishwasher ensuring a fuss-free clean-up!

Gather around the dining table for six as you tuck-in to a delicious meal and discuss the following days itinerary.

After a hearty meal, kick-back and relax in the sitting room, where you can select a much-loved film from the Smart TV and snuggle up in front of the electric log burner.

Completing the ground floor is a handy utility cupboard housing a freezer and washing machine, perfect for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh!

At the rear of the property you will find an enclosed terrace with furniture and offering you views across the town to the river.

Climb the stairs to the first floor, where you can wash away the day with a refreshing shower, before stepping into the warm embrace of a fluffy towel, courtesy of the heated towel rail.

Continuing through the property, you will find two well-appointed bedrooms, a super-king-size with zip/link and a king-size with en-suite shower room.

The final bedroom can be found on the second floor, and is a twin with desk space looking out through a velux window towards Dartmouth town.

Head into the local town, where the budding historians will not be disappointed with the fascinating exhibits within the Dartmouth Museum readily available, as well as the riverside 16th-century Bayard’s Cove Fort and the impressive 14th-century Dartmouth Castle which overlooks the River Dart.

Take a leisurely stroll around the picturesque harbour before treating your loved ones to a tasty pub lunch at Dartmouth’s Oldest Pub, Seven Stars, or sample fresh seafood at The Sea Horse or Rockfish.

The keen walkers of the group will have easy access to the scenic South West Coast Path, which offers some of the most breath-taking views in the area and ensures you don’t miss any of the sights!

Hire a boat for an idyllic sail along the River Dart or hop aboard the ferry and venture over to Kingswear, home to a 16th-century castle and the 20th-century National Trust site of Coleton Fishacre with its beautiful exotic garden.

For a fun-filled day at the beach, the award-winning Blue Flag Blackpool Sands is just a short drive away and offers the perfect setting for bathing in the sunshine, tucking into treats from The Venus Café or paddling the shores.

Further afield you will find Totnes, home to its own imposing castle which overlooks the town, as well as the Totnes Image Bank, the Totnes Fashion & Textiles Museum and The Timehouse art museum.

For a memorable getaway to Devon, choose Crowthers Cottage.

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.
