  • "We could not get the over-bath shower to work properly ..."

    We could not get the over-bath shower to work properly it was either boiling hot or stone cold we now realise we should have informed you of our problem from the first day also, in the same space you could fit a walk-in shower (as we have at home) instead of the bath

  • "Lovely flat with superb views of the harbour all the way down to the floating bridge and well maintained too."

    Icing on cake would be Wi-Fi but would highly recommend. Would be helpful if instructions for heaters could be left in flat to save a trip to Sykes office who asked ‘were we cold’.

  • "This was are second visit to Leeside and we had a wonderful time."

    The flat is very well equipped and it was spotless on our arrival. The Christmas decorations were a lovely touch. If I were to be critical, I would suggest the sofas could do with replacing as they were looking a little jaded and worn. We will definitely be coming back to Leeside in the future.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, and glad to know that you had a nice time in Dartmouth. We do take on board the comments, and are pleased to advise that there are two new sofas already on order…along with a new mattress for the main bedroom! Property Owner

    A little noisy being on the ground floor but we enjoyed our holiday

  • "This flat is fantastic in so many ways."

    The location is second to none and the accommodation is plenty big enough. There are some issues that need addressing by the owners though. WiFi is needed. We took our fire stick to watch programmes from as I hadn't noticed beforehand that there wasn't WiFi. I havent come across holiday accommodation yet that doesn't have it. Not to worry we'll watch the new dvds I bought... No we won't, as the dvd didn't seem to work. Ended up buying one in Argos but it turns out it must have been the TV as the players worked in the bedroom as did the connector they had brought. The master bedroom needs some TLC. The mattress felt old and lumpy and the smell of mould was overpowering, which seemed to be coming from behind the wardrobe. We had the window open all night so it didn't seem as bad. BUT... It was a lovely flat in the most amazing position so maybe don't let the negativity put you off.

  • "Many good things about the property, however, the main bedroom felt musty which meant we moved to the twin bedded room."

    No green waste bags were provided. The DVD player did not connect to the main TV - the maintenance team came but could not resolve the issue. The corner lamp in the lounge flickered when it was tuned off. The garage door would not close properly with the remote control, it would start to reopen when almost closed.

  • "A well presented accommodation in an excellent position with local facilities only a short walk away."

    The accommodation benefits from far reaching views across and along the River Dart. Third time we have booked Leeside and look forward to booking again and visiting pretty Dartmouth once more.

  • "We love Leeside, we have been before!"

    It is in a superb location with fantastic views, you could sit all day just watching the activity on the river. It is always so clean too and we try and leave it exactly as we found it as we really appreciate the effort made to present it so well. The shops are only a few minutes away and M & S Simply food 200 hundred yards away. We only used our Kia Picanto car once (it fits in the garage) and got around by boat and bus which are just a few minutes away. There is everything to hand at Leeside and you could just sit all day and take in the view from the big windows but we did get out and about and went to Brixham, Bigbury on Sea, Dittisham and Dartmouth Castle ... we have previously visited the National Trust houses which are all excellent and of course the 'Round Robin' day trip is great too. The local shops are excellent and the Friday market is worth a visit. There is still more for us to see and we will be back. Many thanks to the owners for letting us stay at their lovely property.

  • "Fabulous apartment in a fabulous position in Dartmouth."

    1st time visit and will def look for this if we return. Garage is a great asset as long stay parking in central dartmouth is not good. Our car (seat ibiza estate) fitted in fine but quite tight width wise. Apartment is very comfortable with excellent quality fixtures and fittings. Bed was very comfy. So lovely to sit at the table - rain or shine - and watch the comings and goings along the waterfront. A definite 'must' for a return.

  • "We had never visited Dartmouth before as Fowey was our favourite destination but Dartmouth has exceeded everything and we loved it."

    The apartment is top class and just minutes away from the Ferry, the shops, the bus stop and M & S Food Hall all on the flat and easily reached. So many lovely restaurants too, the list endless. The garage is small but we parked our Kia Picanto in it so no problems there, in fact we did not use the car for 4 days as getting around by boat etc was so easy. We had glorious weather but if it had not been so good we would have happily lazed around in the apartment and watched the activity on the river as it was just bliss. As all other guests have mentioned Wifi would have been the icing on the cake but I managed! We hope to return next year as it is bye bye Fowey, hello DARTMOUTH!

  • "This was our fifth time in this property and we will possibly be back next year."

    For the location to the town and the views over the river from the kitchen and two windows in the lounge, you could not wish for anything better. The choices of places to eat is great. You have pub food or Taylor's standard and others in between. The choice is yours. The car can be left in the garage and you have a choice of bus , ferry and steam train all within easy reach. We had a fabulous two weeks covering the Regatta again this year.

  • "An extremely well presented apartment with excellent far reaching views of the river Dart."

    The apartment being just a 5 minute walk into town. Despite a garage being available it is only suitable for a small car as clearly explained on the apartment web site, with this in mind and 24 hour 7 days a week parking within Dartmouth town proving difficult I did make advanced arrangements and parked my car in a private park. unfortunately adding to the cost.

  • "The property lacks WiFi."

    We could not get to grips with the operation of the radiators. The space at the foot of the beds in the smaller/twin room is inadequate, requiring whoever is using the bed nearest the window to reach it using a sideways shuffle. The view from the living room is spectacular !

  • "Leeside was an excellent place to stay and was very comfortable and spacious and very well equiped to a very high standard."

    The views out onto the river just a few feet away and across to Kingswear were fantastic. Shops including Butchers and Bakers were only five minutes walk away. Parking was a small garage at the rear of the property. Our Renault Clio did not leave much room to get out of the car once parked but it was ok. A larger car might have trouble Overall I would give this property and Dartmouth 5/5

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.
