  • "Overall the property was lovely."

    Guests should not underestimate that the journey into town is as challenging as the steps to the property for elderly or infirm guests.

  • "We had an absolutely fantastic week in this amazing property."

    Sunrise at the property is truly spectacular and we could not believe how busy the harbour was in November. I celebrated my 60th birthday and the house made it a memorable occasion. The views are brilliant and the space is great for adults. A little scary driving in and out because the road is 2 way and very, very narrow but once you are in it is well worth the trip! The walk to town is so short and we certainly improved our fitness climbing the steps from town 2 or 3 times a day. I have a few suggestions for you to consider to improve on this beautiful place. 1) Provide an oven glove 2) Consider having a parking permit for town (especially whilst there is extensive building works going on at several properties on the road) We had 5 adults and would have normally had 3 cars but came in 2 but if you had 8 adults a permit would be great for another car. 3) Clean/ replace the Gtech K9 filter. ( fortunately we have one so we cleaned it out and then were able to hoover)

  • "Wonderful setting, exceptional views from all water facing windows, of which there are many."

    So many places to sit & enjoy the water. Be together but also space to have time apart if needed. A superb house. Stairs to & from road to house as well as those down to town, a little challenging for the frailer members of the family & narrow street a little nerve racking at times but all well worth it.

  • "Enjoyed everything, Decor,view, comfort and everything that you need for living, especially tea ,coffee,hand soap, everything thought off,even milk."

    Nothing to fault,just need to be able to be slightly active to be able to walk up and down to town.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your wonderful feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back to the are soon. Property Owner

  • "Stunning million dollar views from a very comfortable and well equipped property - the house is very well designed to take full advantage of the views from the huge lounge, the conservatory and the outside decks - views up the river to the naval college on the left, Kingswear town directly opposite and the mouth of the estuary and Dartmouth Castle to the right."

    Parking for 2 cars is a real bonus in this area of the town. A couple of points to consider - 38 steep steps from the parking to the house (pack light!) and very narrow streets to approach the house - max 6ft 6ins clearance in many places makes for some very careful driving. Highly recommended if the last 2 points don’t put you off!!

  • "We were a little surprised at the paucity of cleaning products supplied, ie hand soap, bin bags, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, washing powder, kitchen roll and toilet roll."

    When we stay in properties, we expect to keep them properly clean and tidy, and to have the necessary products to hand. Having to buy a full set was disappointing, and felt a bit stingy given the price of the property. I feel that providing adequate cleaning products would benefit the owners and encourage guests to maintain the property during their stay

  • "The house is lovely but just a few comments."

    1. The conservatory has 3 separate leaks in the roof and as we had heavy rain on 2 nights we spent a lot of time mopping up rain water. 2. The fridge in the kitchen was hanging off the hinges when we arrived, luckily my husband is a handyman and mended it. We have taken a photo of the fridge before it was mended. 3. The very large tree in front of the sitting room window which blocks a considerable amount of the view from there, this was particularly disappointing as the reason we booked the house was for the views. I feel it has grown considerably since the photos were taken as it blocks the view totally of the opposite bay. 4. The cleaning requirements asked us to put all our bedding into black bags, but these were not left for us. I phoned the Coast and Country agents and asked for some but they didn't appear. I left a note for the cleaners to this affect. In the current climate, this should have been correctly sorted out.

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.
