  • "Really stylish modern property."

    Loved the private parking garage and a great location very close to the shops and amenities. Could have done with recycling facilities though. Was asked to put in one bin bag.

  • "We appreciated how clean and comfortable it was and that we had all we needed."

    The central heating was very effective. It's great that there is a guaranteed space for parking your car and that there are so many local walks and good public transport. We would stay there again and would recommend it to friends.

    Dear visitor Thank you so much for your splendid feedback about Freshford. I continue to try and improve customer experience, new frying pan going in today ! I look forward to you visiting us again Pam B Property Owner

  • "A lovely apartment, booked on very short notice, but really pleased with everything."

    Just as described in the listing, perfect for a stroll into town and with M&S only a 2 minute walk away, couldn't have been better. Underground parking a real bonus - we never moved the car during our stay. Will definitely be returning.

  • "Great location close to all amenities, pubs and restaurants."

    Underground parking was a real bonus and we never moved the car all week - so much to see and do in and around Dartmouth by walking, ferry and steam train. Clear and simple directions as well as key collection. We will be back!

    We could fault nothing and Coast & Country (Leah) were very helpful and quick to sort a problem with the bedside lamps which was much appreciated. The location is brilliant and we were treated to the best weather. A great holiday - many thanks

    I think it should have been the other way round, finally got fixed by Wednesday. It would have been nice if the TV worked in the bedroom ( new remote required) . Apart from all that apartment was lovely, very similar to the other one I stayed in.

    This was the second time we have stayed in Dartmouth house. We thoroughly enjoyed both stays.

  • "Convenient location, but not the best property we have stayed at with you."

    The plumbing left a lot to be desired, as, after flushing any loo, the taps and/or shower would slow to a dribble or even stopped.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. We can confirm that since your visit, the system has been upgraded and the water pressure in the apartment is much improved. We do hope to see you in Dartmouth again soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely apartment and very well situated."

    The double bed in the one bedroom was very lumpy and the shower over the bath was almost non existing regarding water flow. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay. The car parking space was wonderful as Dartmouth was very busy every day.

  • "The location is ideal, really central and a bonus to have on site parking (if a little tricky at times depending on who is parked either side of the allocated space!"

    ). We were disappointed with the apartment - it's listed as 4 star and the price for a week in August reflected this, however compared to many other properties of this rating we have stayed in, it is more like a 3 star and felt overrated and overpriced. I agree with comments from other guests - main bed is really uncomfortable, bathrooms need updating including provision of proper shower facilities over the bath in the main bathroom and the kitchen needs some additional crockery and cutlery. We enjoyed our week, however won't return to this particular apartment.

  • "Our main issue with the property was with the main bed."

    The mattress needs replacing.You cannot move without the springs pinging - Didn’t sleep all week .

    Many thanks for your feedback. We were surprised to hear that you found the mattress uncomfortable, we have not had any complaints of this nature since last year, after which the mattress was replaced by the owner. We hope you still had an enjoyable holiday and look forward to welcoming you back to the area soon. Property Owner

    Everything was good but you need more mugs and cutlery because with four people having cups of tea etc we needed to do a lot of washing up and had to wait until the evening to use the dishwasher you need at least 14 mugs and a lot more cutlery

    It is an ideal location right in the centre but , apart from the seagulls, not noisy. We couldn't fault it from any point of view and are already planning our next visit.

    Easy booking last year but no problem with transferring to this year due to Covid. Couldn't make it this year due to personal reasons but again, transfer to my daughter and son in law was handled extremely well with friendliness and professionalism. They had a great stay at a great property. We will all be back next year (Covid permitting!)

  • "En suite light switch not working correctly, no shelf or cabinet for toiletries, mirror far too low."

    Tumble dryer just heats wet clothes. Main bathroom no screen for shower over bath. Double bed mattress too low for frame, bruised legs when you sit on bed. TV in main bedroom found in closet- nowhere to put it in room. Two lights with blown bulbs 1 in kitchen 1 in living room.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback after your recent stay at Freshford, 3 Dartmouth House. We have passed your comments on to the owner, who have said that they will look into the mattress and shower screen. Sorry to hear that there were light bulbs that needed replacing, if you had let us know during your stay, we would have rectified this for you. We have also checked the tumble dryer, and this is now working correctly. We hope that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to Dartmouth. Property Owner

    The main bedrooms en suite had mould developing outside the shower cubicle and the vinyl flooring had lifted. Having reported the squeeking of one of the single beds in the second bedroom last year again we were very disappointed to find exactly the same problem this year.

    The location is excellent, close to the shops and on the level. The parking is a bonus but the allocated space is rather tight for larger cars. It was evident that the caretaker was making sure everywhere was clean and sanitised. The flat is well equipped and very comfortable. Thank you for an enjoyable holiday.

  • "What a fabulous appartment to use as a base to explore Dartmouth and South Devon."

    Everything you could ask for in terms of comfortable furnishings, appliances and location. The underground secure parking is an added bonus. Two improvements we would suggest One of the single beds devloped a creak and whilst the maintenence engineer tried to fix it when we contacted the office it was not sble to be fixed. So to sort that out would be good Secondly we contacted Coast and Country to see if a hairdryer and iron / ironingboard were included in the property. We were told no but only to find when we arrived that both were in place and of good quality. VERY FRUSTRATING However other than these two observations would have no hesitation in recommending this property

  • "Poorly equipped property compared with other properties in Dartmouth House that we've stayed in."

    Cleaning products almost non existent. No drawer space in bedroom 2, no surface space in master bedroom (nowhere to stand personal items). Bedside table window side not usable due to both drawers full of books. Couldn't t put cases in wardrobe as full of superfluous items. However there were THIRTY SIX COAT HANGERS!!!!! Will not book this property again. However would heartily recommend other Dartmouth House properties we've enjoyed.

    The carpets and sofas were grubby and worn and very uncomfortable. The windows were dirty as were the skirting boards and the tiles in the shower were black. It is very tired and needs updating. The position and the actual lay out of the property is excellent.

  • "Freshford is good but as in previous years we have had a problem with the channels on the TV."

    This TV really does need replacing as it is old , the problems with the channels , and it is far too small for the size of the apartment. Also the lack of broadband is an issue and as a result of these issues we will need to consider alternative accommodation.

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.
