  • "We loved your cottage and had a wonderful stay."

    It was an excellent base for exploring the surrounding areas. The property offered everything we could have wished for. The parking permit was very useful. Thankyou. A extra blanket in the top bedroom would have been nice as you only supplied one in the twin bedded room and it was starting to get cold. Other than that it was perfect. We hope to visit again soon. Thanks again .

  • "Beautifully maintained cottage."

    Very comfortable and although close to town and shops is very quiet with great views over the rooftops to the estuary. Would be useful to know that there are quite a few steps up an alleyway with no access to cars for unloading. You have to carry everything from the road up the steps and along a narrow walkway to the cottage and being self catering that means all your food as well as luggage. Once in, the cottage is amazing! Facilities wise it would be nice if there was a washing machine but understandably space is limited and there is a launderette just around the corner. Would definitely book again and recommend.

  • "I booked a week’s holiday with my Mum at Gull Cottage and we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend the property to anyone wanting to visit Dartmouth."

    The cottage is in a great location, close to all the amenities and the provision of a parking permit for the main carpark which is a short distance away was very useful. We found the cottage to be very well equipped and it was even nicer in real life than it appeared in the photos

  • "One of the nicest cottages we’ve ever stayed in (and we’ve stayed in a lot)."

    The location was terrific and the street was magical - 100% worth the schlep to and from the car!

  • "Super unusual cosy warm cottage."

    Well equipped and conveniently situated. Not suitable for people with mobility issues. Only downside was the bed was very narrow and extremely soft. In all other respects we had a wonderful week in Gull Cottage and enjoyed exploring Dartmouth and its surrounding area.

  • "Property was lovely, very clean and in a great position in Dartmouth."

    Very warm and cosy. We had a wonderful stay. A minor point, but would have been nice to have a few coffee pods supplied for arrival. Easily bought from M&S, but obviously need to arrive within shopping hours or wait until the next morning! Only other point is the steps up to the cottage - no problem for us but it should perhaps be clearer that there are a number of steps from the road up the hill (gradual) and then about 5 steep steps up to the close. This could be a problem for anyone with mobility problems or very young children.

  • "Parking was an issue at the weekend when we arrived."

    The only criticism would be the outside seating area, very good use of photography to make it look like it had more space.

  • "A washing machine, Freeview TV and an easy to use microwave would have been welcome assets to the property."

    Other than those items, everything was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in your lovely cottage!

  • "Such a beautiful property in a fabulous location!"

    Loved every minute of our stay in this beautifully clean cottage. Thank you so much.

  • "Great stay in general, but happy to share some feedback."

    1. Please leave more than 2 toilet roles for the entire week. Should be minimum of 2 per bathroom 2. Consider black out blinds for the bedrooms? 3. Consider a fan upstairs as its extremely hot in the top bedroom

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.
