  • "Lovely, very comfortable property in a great location."

    It is worth noting, due to the age of the property, that the stairs are steep and spiral with a handrail on the outside only. I suspect older or less fit people might find them a bit of a challenge.

    Many thanks for the positive feedback.I hope that you had an enjoyable stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon .Appreciate the constructive comments regarding the staircase. Property Owner

  • "Grants is a modern, well appointed cottage right in the heart of Dartmouth with easy access to most of the local attractions."

    Top, hotel quality bedrooms with T.V. and ensuit or adjacent bathrooms. State of the art kitchen which even impressed our Chef son. After a day out we could always look forward to coming home to a warm welcome at Grants Cottage. Have already booked the same weeks next year. Thank you for a great holiday.

  • "Thank you for a lovely holiday."

    We have made lasting memories as a family. The House has been the perfect base to allow us to explore and visit lots of beautiful places. The house was spotlessly clean with soft comfy beds and the kitchen was well equipped. If we were to add anything it would be a mirror to the left had first floor bedroom. Thank you again.

    Dear Mr C - many thanks for the positive feedback. We're really happy that you had a lovely holiday and comfortable stay. We'll get that missing mirror replaced. We hope that you will visit again. Property Owner

    Lovely modern furnishings and all necessary facilities, such a good location and decent pun nearby. Wish there was a downstairs loo but we all coped. Lovely comfy beds and decent shower in top left bedroom. Rained a lot which was annoying but nothing we didn't cope with and was expected. Love it here.

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.
