  • "Great location and a good place for a small family (2 adults, 1 kid)."

    All in all, we had a lovely week and enjoyed Dartmouth as our home base. We booked this property last-minute and got a pretty good deal, but I would be hesitant to pay full-price. Based on other Sykes Cottages we have stayed at, this one is acceptable at £800-900 but seems over-priced for what it is at the full summer list price of nearly £1400 for the week. One big thing to be aware of with this property though... As the listing mentions, the property overlooks the M&S carpark. What the listing fails to mention is that M&S takes their deliveries at 7am every morning! Assuming one sleeps with the windows open as we did in the summer, it is impossible to sleep while the extremely loud deliveries are taking place for over an hour. Also be aware that the property comes with only a cleaning starter pack (which seems to be typical these days for properties owned by a company instead of individuals) that will not last you the entire week.

  • "The property is ideally situated in the centre of Dartmouth."

    It was well equipped with spacious bedrooms and comfy beds. There were lots of great places to eat close by and so much to see and do. A great base - thank you. We had a lovely week.

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.
