  • "The property was lovely and really clean except for a couple of food items left in the wardrobe and down the side of the sofa which would have been difficult to spot by the cleaners but became evident during our stay."

    It was great to be able to easily walk into town with only a short hill which is partly why we chose the property. The kitchen was well stocked and the shower was the best we’ve experienced with self catering. Parking was a real bonus especially during Regatta week and was adequate for 1 large car. The garden is steep so others might want to be mindful with children, puppies, or old dogs but was suitable for our needs. The beds were super comfy and pillows just right. There was a hairdryer in the property despite being told by the agents there definitely wasn’t one. Also lots of extras such as hoover, airer, iron etc if needed. We agree the TV signal isn’t great but you can sign into various digital providers such as iPlayer and Prime. All in all we would recommend the property but prefer using a different agency as they weren’t they easiest to get hold of.

  • "The TV signal is extremely poor some channels would not work at all whilst we were there."

    The large rug in the lounge area is a trip hazard has it has started to curl up on the edge. Net curtain needed on the back windows as in previous reviews you ae very overlooked from next door. The clock needs a new battery in lounge. The bath is very high and awkward to get into it needs a grab rail or a non slip mat. Internal doors could do with replacing never seen handles like these. You cannot close a door quietly they clunk shut. Garden is very overlooked from next door. Cooker is very futuristic and took a while to work out how to use it. The extractor fan does not work not even sure if it is connected at all. The weeds down the front steps need clearing as they encroach the pathway. It was ok for what we paid and the good weather was a bonus not far from the town either.

  • "A nicely well furnished and equipped property and we felt comfortable as soon as we arrived."

    We are in our seventies but we could cope with the walk back up the hill after a meal at one of the lovely restaurants or a stroll around Dartmouth.

  • "Very clean and wonderfully situated house in Dartmouth."

    The kitchen; very beautiful; had everything that you needed so you could cook your normal delights. The TV signal was hit and miss which was the only downside.

  • "Kitchen cupboards and handles not up to expected standard."

    Lack of privacy in garden. Externally steep steps need maintenance and weeding. Bedrooms very comfortable and stunning bathroom. Great location with parking within easy reach of all amenities.

  • "Kitchen cupboards could do with new handles."

    Very difficult to open with small knobs. Cooker hood over oven not working. Bath could do with non-slip mat.

    Great location to access Bars and Restaurants, as well as history and the waterfront. Would stay again.

  • "Comfortable, spacious and there was everything there that we needed."

    It was nice having a patio to sit on during the warm days. It was only a 10 minutes walk into the town so we didn't need to use the car at all.

  • "A wonderful 2 week stay at George Cottage, Dartmouth."

    Brand new patio furniture and dawn to dusk sunshine, ensured many hours were spent in the garden. The house is a short walk from the Town centre and with the parking space at the cottage, we left the car and exploded on foot. George Cottage was very clean and welcoming, with everything provided to enjoy our stay. The shower was excellent and bedrooms comfortable. Our dog loved the garden and made friends with the friendly neighbours As ever, the local team in Dartmouth were excellent and checked to see that all was well during our stay and arranged a mid stay linen change. There is so much to do in and around Dartmouth and we wholeheartedly recommend George Cottage as being the ideal place to stay whilst exploring or relaxing in glorious Devon

    The house was in easy walking distance to the town and I would definitely return again. The only criticism is the patio furniture was in poor condition and needs replacing.

    Cleaning of the bath plughole needs to be cleaned I had to remove loads of hair for the water to run away The garden could do with a bit of attention we had to cut back a couple of branches to access the patio the garden furniture is very weather worn and is falling apart House very good although accessing the fridge is difficult with just a small knob

  • "Great place to stay with the additional bonus of parking."

    We were disappointed to find that the patio chairs are very rickety and in our view verging on dangerous and, as a previous reviewer had noted, they should really be replaced before an accident happens. It isn't appropriate to promote the property as having a patio and seating if the chairs feel dangerous to use. This was reported to the Owner Relations Expert by email while we were there. Their response was that this comment would be passed onto the owners to let them know the patio chairs are in a dangerous condition with the hope they would purchase a new set of chairs. I do hope they do.

  • "Excellent location easy to access and park."

    5 minutes walk to town up a gradual hill. House was clean, tidy, well equipped and comfortable. The terrace got sun all day however the garden seats were in a poor state of repair and really need repairing or replacing. The gate cannot be secured if you have children or pets. The design of the knobs on the kitchen cabinets made it quite difficult for my wife and mother to open the fridge and dishwasher door. Taking all that into consideration we would stay again.

  • "Positives - Comfortable and tidy house which overall met our requirements whilst on holiday."

    Good location for town and parking a real bonus, particularly as it was Regatta week whilst we were there. Negatives - We could not find a tin opener which would be very useful. Wardrobe doors were a bit stiff and difficult for our daughters to operate without assistance. Bedding slightly stained in places and TV signal poor and frustrating throughout our stay. Having only one bathroom was tricky, especially with two teenage daughters. A cloak room down stairs in the hallway would be a useful addition.

  • "The house was lovely and very well Located to walk into Dartmouth."

    It was lovely to take our dog, however he is small so we could not let him Out in the back garden not on his lead as he could have escaped through the gate at the top of the steps or the slatted fence to the garden next door . As the house is advertised as dog friendly it would have been good of these could have been solid fencing with no chance of escaping . Other than that - a great stay !

    It needs to be sorted out with the grass being cut etc. New back garden chairs and a table would also make the property a lot better. Maybe even having the outdoor steps jet washed would help.

The property

Situated within easy walking distance of the town centre is this well presented semi-detached abode, George Cottage.

With its close proximity to the coastline and a plethora of things to see and do, this cottage is ideal for families who are seeking a relaxing space to call home as they endeavour on an action-packed holiday.

Once you have situated your car in your designated off-road parking spot, take the external steps up to enter into the property and discover an open-plan living room, offering a spacious social area, where you can all gather together to unwind.

The contemporary kitchen space comes complete with a range of quality appliances, which are certain to encourage a spot of home cooking, whether that be preparing picnic’s for the next day’s coastal adventure or whipping up a family-favourite recipe.

Joining the space is a large dining table and an inviting seating arrangement, where you can look forward to kicking back and flicking through the channels of the TV, whilst amidst the refreshing colour palette and nautical theme touches.

The contemporary elegance continues onto the first floor, where you will find your sleeping spots, comprising of a plush king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom, each one benefitting from quality linens, fluffy white towels and plenty of storage space to keep your things.

During balmy afternoons enjoy the south facing terrace where table and chairs offer an alternative dining arrangement.

Positioned five minutes away from Dartmouth’s centre, so that you won’t have to venture too far to find the perfect spot for food and drinks, with its narrow streets littered with superb restaurants and pubs, as well as boutique shops and enticing art galleries, that are awaiting to be enjoyed.

Be sure to meander to the waterfront, where you can catch a glimpse of the colourful boats bob happily in the water or if you are feeling adventurous, hire a boat to explore the waters even further.

Whilst here, you can pay a visit to the Royal Avenue Gardens or brush up on the local history at Tudor-style Dartmouth Museum and the 15th century fortress of Bayard's Cove Fort.

Keen walkers can take the coastal path to Dartmouth Castle to soak up the views of the estuary, before lazing on the shoreline of the Sugary Cove Beach; alternatively, walk along the famous South West Coast Path, where you can pay a visit to the likes of Brownstone Battery and Berry Head National Nature Reserve.

Families can look forward to embarking on a journey on the Dartmouth Steam Railway, where you can take in the magnificence of the Devonshire countryside before arriving at Paignton, which is home to an array of things to do, including the Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, a number of sandy beaches, a picturesque pier and adventure golf.

The delights of Brixham, Kingswear and Salcombe are all well-worth exploring too, as is a day out at Woodlands Family Theme Park and Torquay's Dinosaur World.

George Cottage promises to be a wonderful place to call home as you enjoy this part of Devon.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
