  • "My wife and I enjoyed our week staying at Fairhaven which is a spacious and comfortable apartment located in the centre of Dartmouth and close to local amenities including a mini supermarket a few yards away It is fully equipped with all mod cons which will suit in particular those who want to self-cater."

    A couple of negatives. Overall the apartment was very clean and tidy however black mould on the grouting between some tiles in the main shower was unsightly and surprising to find. Cigarette ends (despite this being a no smoking apartment) discarded on the decking in the outdoor area had been overlooked. Finally a word of caution to anyone with a mobility issue. The stairs mentioned in the letting particulars are turning and fairly steep and can prove difficult to negotiate with cases.

    Many thanks for your kind words about your recent stay at Fairhaven. We're very glad you had an enjoyable time. We were, however, very sorry to read your comments about the bit of mould in the tile grouting and especially the discarded cigarette butts left on the deck. We have spoken to our cleaner and she is going to see that both issues are rectified. Thanks for pointing them out. Hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely perfect."

    The only downside to the property was the stairs when lugging luggage. Was only arr/dep so no biggy and would not deter us from returning

  • "The property was fabulous."

    Beautiful in a great location. The Coast and Country staff in Dartmouth were amazing. We arrived at the office needing a property at the last minute which they did and they sorted out a problem with the hot water immediately. Very impressed.

    Thanks for your positive feedback Michelle. Glad all worked out in the end and you enjoyed your stay at Fairhaven. Hope to see you back in Dartmouth again soon. Property Owner

  • "I would highly recommend the holiday property."

    Holiday property was fantastic. Great location, very central, quiet at night (apart from hourly clock striking - not a problem for us), comfortable, spacious & light. Nice decor. Kitchen well equipped (needed a salad bowl) & bathrooms great. Only 2 criticisms. 1) the stairs & entrance hall were filthy. This has been commented on in reviews before. It would take 10-15 minutes at most to wipe the dust off the stairs & Hoover the front door mat. It was reminiscent of student flat days. Gave a bad first impression. 2) Pillows were cheap nylon ones with no pillow protector. Mine pillow was yellow & a bit yuk. Given that you are still asking people to strip their own beds because of covid (slightly surprised re this) it would be sensible to ensure pillows are not stained.

  • "Everything was excellent in the property."

    Very well stocked with everything you would need, beds comfortable. The only drawback for me was the stairs to appartment, they were steep and “spiral”, but this was all mentioned in the literature. The location was excellent.

  • "Superb accommodation."

    Great spot, great layout, great furnishings and design - loved the terrace. The only thing i would say is advertise the difficulties of getting luggage or anything of size to the apartment a bit more. Just so people can prepare. But not an issue to us. Thank you for a fantastic week

    Thanks so much for your lovely comments. We're so glad you enjoyed the apartment. We'll relay your suggestion to the letting agent. Many thanks again and hope to see you back in Dartmouth one day. Property Owner

  • "Super location and the photos don't do it justice."

    Excellent facilities and great to have 2 bathrooms. Our only negative is that the bin sack in the hallway was full with extra bin bags on the floor when we arrived on the Saturday, and it wasn't emptied until Thursday meaning it was really smelly in the stairwell. Not sure if this was the normal collection day?

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you loved the property and its location. We are very sorry for the rubbish situation. We have spoken with the relevant parties and this was in fact the lower apartments rubbish that should have been kept outside and going forward it will be. We can only apologise that it was there for your stay. We do hope you a lovely holiday and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

    There were even a few improvements on the previous visit such as bedside units in the main bedroom and expanding airers in each room.

    Enjoyed it also Kids loved it as they had lots of activities to do would definitely go back Just have to make sure no heavy stuff as the stairs can be too much when going in or leaving We had to light pack but it meant so many trips But was worth the Accomodation

  • "Excellent accommodation in a central location but due to Dartmouth being so busy, even with the car park permit it was often very difficult to find a parking spot and impossible to find an evening meal unless booked several weeks in advance."

  • "The accommodation was excellent, it looked great on the photos but was even better in real life."

    The rooms were all spotless and the facilities were excellent. It’s location was right in the centre of Dartmouth and we really couldn’t have asked for anymore. In terms of minor frustrations we were expecting a coffee machine and the use of a hair dryer (both mentioned on the site) neither was available. Not a major inconvenience but it may be worth amending the facilities section if not available. I also need to give a mention to the Seagulls - there are so many, again nothing to do with the property but there are literally hundreds and I can be a little noisy. We would definitely recommend our family and friends to stay here in the future. Thanks for letting us stay at your amazing property.

    We really appreciate your positive feedback with regard to your recent stay at Fairhaven. We’ve just taken over the ownership of the flat, so apologies that there were some inconsistencies with what was advertised on the site. There are now two hairdryers available!

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.
