  • "Our second visit to Harbourside didn’t disappoint, we absolutely love the views from the bay window and bedroom balcony, we love the layout of the apartment, the kitchen & bathrooms especially."

    I hope the owners keep the decor regularly updated, we noticed there were a few more stains on the hallway carpet this year but with multiple occupancy I guess that can’t be avoided. The outside wooden table and chairs could probably do with replacing for next year, we can’t wait to return again.

    Thank you for your comments, which we appreciate very much. We do try to keep the property updated, and this year had a lot of redecorating done in January. We have mentioned the carpet to the cleaners several times, but to no avail. We will do it ourselves when we go in July! Yes we agree about the balcony table; we are on the case. Thanks very much Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week, fantastic views, shame weather wasn't quite warm enough to make use of the balcony."

    We did note some cutlery and a couple of plates/ saucepans weren't 'clean', but easily remedied. Sofa not as comfortable as it looked, but beds were. Parking mostly at the main car park, so 10 min walk back most days, discovered easier to walk through Bayards Fort and up stairs to avoid hill more. Lovely location within easy reach of Dartmouth and restaurants and shopping Highly recommend Fast rabbit farm gardens 10 min drive.

  • "An exceptional apartment."

    Panoramic harbour views up the river and out to sea from lounge and main bedroom . Close to the town but private. Large living area and double bedroom both with balconies. Very well furnished, decorated and equipped. Both bathrooms spacious and newly fitted. Out of season we were able to park on the road nearby.

  • "This apartment is very spacious and well furnished."

    Comfy beds & choice of seating. Nice big En suite bathroom although watch out for the step! Also funny little step into the cloakroom cupboard. The balcony for 4 chairs & table is very tight but the view across the river is amazing. Short walk into town & loads of lovely coffee shops and restaurants of good quality. We would definitely stay again.

  • "Fantastic stay at harbourside!"

    Key collection supposed to be from 5pm but lovely office staff allowed us to check in at 1pm which was a bonus! Stayed with two teenagers so was great to have two bathrooms and plenty of space! Apartment is much bigger than expected! Location is excellent and car parking permit was great as we left the car in the car park most of the time! Everything included here for a perfect break (Netflix, playing cards, games etc). Lovely to sit out and watch the busting harbour any time of the day! Quiet and relaxed place!

  • "As with previous properties booked through Coast&Country, Harbourside was immaculate, exceeded our expectations and had wonderful, ever changing views of the estuary."

    The kitchen was very well equipped and we loved the shower rooms! We downloaded an enjoyable and spectacular walking route with photographs, from Dittisham to Dartmouth that was on the website, and found it really easy to use, which made doing an unknown walk totally stress free.

  • "Beautiful apartment with fabulous views."

    Everything we needed was there. Lovely comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Excellent location and very close to the ferry terminal. Some confusion over the key pick-up times as not explained very well in the email received. One part said they could be collected after 3.00 pm and another after 5.00 pm. Also had a problem finding recycling bin for plastics and tins in Dartmouth - a note in the apartment about where they can be recycled would be good.

  • "Harbourside was everything we needed for a restful break after Christmas."

    We visit Dartmouth every year at Christmas and New year and this cottage has exceeded everything we have stayed in before. The views are outstanding, every night sitting in the lounge overlooking the beautiful river dart. Every morning we wrapped up warm and enjoyed a coffee on the balcony. This cottage is perfect in every way. Tastefully decorated and containing all mod-cons. It’s a short walk to town, beware lots of steps, fantastic for walking off the Christmas excess, but not so suitable for those less mobile. We will be booking again without hesitation.

  • "On arrival we were greeted with hassle from a resident opposite while trying to unload our car near the property."

    The rubbish bin contained waste from previous visitors, leaving us little room for our own. The twin bedroom was not of the same standard or comfort as the double room. The radiator in the en-suite, off the twin-bedroom, didn't work enough to warm the bathroom, only the bottom of it got warm. Unlike the other bathroom there was no heated towel rail, so we had no way to dry wet towels, which was unpleasant and not expected in a quality holiday property. Cleanliness was also not to the standard expected. In the twin bedroom there was a thick deposit of dirt clearly visible behind a tallboy. The venetian blind in the en-suite had a similar heavy deposit of dirt. The WC pan needed flushing to remove excreta from a previous user. The linen and towels were clean, however a mattress protector on one single bed had an unpleasant stain and should have been laundered. The pillow protectors were also stained and should have been changed. Broadband connection was inconsistent and frequently dropped; the upload speed was insufficient to use FaceTime or Skype. Using the Smart TV to stream from Netflix was made difficult by extended losses of network connection. For one whole day the Freesat satellite signal was lost as well, and as there was no terrestrial Freeview aerial connected, we were without any TV to watch. We would have preferred to be made aware of potential broadband issues at this apartment prior to booking.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We have arranged for the radiator in the en-suite to be looked at so that it works more effectively. Unfortunately, if the weather is unusually bad around Dartmouth the TV and WiFi signal can be affected. We have spoken with the cleaners of this property and raised the points with them so that these areas will not be missed going forward. If you had brought any of the above points to us during your stay we would have done our upmost to rectify them as soon as possible for you. We hope that these points did not detract too much from your stay in Dartmouth, and we hope we can welcome you back to the area again soon. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful apartment overlooking the River Dart."

    Very well equipped with everything we would needed. Only thing against returning were the steps and the lack of parking. My wife has mobility problems and found the steps quite a challenge. The walk into town was easy and Dartmouth really is a lovely holiday destination.

  • "This is a lovely apartment with beautiful river views."

    This is the second time we have stayed there, last time we slept in the double bedroom with the river view & was very comfortable, this time we had the twin bedded room as we went with friends, we found this room quite stuffy & couldn't open the window as its painted shut & also couldn't turn the radiator off as the valve wont move. The flat is very well equipped, both bathrooms are excellent with lovely showers.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are happy to hear that this is your second visit to Dartmouth and to Harbourside. Thank you for bringing these points to our attention we will arrange for these to be assessed and remedied. We hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

  • "Really lovely place to stay, superb views, really clean and excellent facilities."

    Booking and key pick up super easy. Dartmouth is a beautiful town to visit too! Only real grumble was the parking - would have been nice to know in advance how far the car parking was and that also from the Tuesday car parking would be a bus ride away (this was a little inconvenient). We also got a parking ticket whilst parked in the Mayor's car park which I feel could have been avoided if it was simply made clear we were to park in the 'Pay and Display Area' rather than using words such as reserved space, smaller carpark etc.

  • "We have booked Harbourside for the same week for the last 4 years & expected to do so again."

    However, without informing us that we no longer had priority booking at the end of our holiday, we discovered that it was already fully booked & that we would no longer get the loyalty discount. We now realise that you have been taken over by Sykes & that they have their own loyalty scheme but I do think this should apply to previous Coast & Country customers. We are very disappointed not to be returning to Harbourside next year.

  • "The apartment was beyond expectations - luxury as far as we were concerned."

    It had everything we could have asked for and more. The views over the estuary were stunning. We frequently sat in the window after our evenings out as the river was a hive of activity with the ferries going backwards and forwards. There was even a pair of binoculars. It was such a relaxing break and we would definitely consider re-booking at some time in the future. If I could mention anything - and this is only something rather trivial - it would help if the owners compiled a folder with details of various eateries (restaurants/pubs and take-aways) they recommended. There were various leaflets, maps, ferry details etc., but some were out of date. We did have a few take-aways and quickly discovered that one fish shop was better than the other we had chosen. Also we did eat out at an indian restaurant one evening, but were later told by the lady working behind the bar at the Dartmouth Arms that we had not chosen the best indian restaurant. Recommendations are always good and also guests could maybe be encouraged to make recommendations if they have had a good meal somewhere.

    Nicely furnished and very well equipped with those lovely views of the Dart. The only downside is the faff of parking to unload but a small price to pay. We'd stay here again.

    Joined by family who hadn't visited this amazing apartment before, they were simply blown away by the superb accommodation and the fantastic views from the main bedroom and sitting room. The shower room and the bathroom have been updated since our last visit and although there isn't a bath in place any more, this made no difference to our 2 year old grand-daughter who loved having a shower with her mummy! This was, I think, our 6th visit to Harbourside, which really says it all. And the weather was really kind which was the icing on the cake!

    We have stayed there 3 times now and each time there have been improvements made to it. This time the second bathroom had had a luxurious modern refit. The location is stunning, you can sit in the large bay window in the lounge and watch the River Dart, its tides and traffic: ferries, the Naval cadets' training craft, all kinds of yachts and fishing vessels and the occasional rigged sailing ship or gin palace. A fabulous place for a holiday.

    Harbourside is a lovely apartment with the most amazing views of the River Dart looking over to Kingswear. We really do think that this must be the best view ever! The apartment is very comfortable, good bed in Bedroom 1 (although only a double, could do with a 5' bed there), with patio doors with balcony. The sitting room is spacious, as is the kitchen, which is well stocked. The second bedroom is quite small but has its own shower room. We had a wonderful week and hope to be back some time soon.

About the location

DARTMOUTH

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.
