  • "A lovely stay at Nookie cottage with a great location, ease of access to town centre 400 meters away with a nice flat walk."

    Cosy and comfortable, but as clearly stated, parking is only for a very small car and stairs to in the cottage to top floor are very steep with low head room, so care is to be taken. As always Dartmouth was lovely.

  • "We absolutely loved this accommodation but the parking was a real problem."

    We came thinking we could leave the car on the drive and forget all about it but this was not possible due to there being a car on next door’s drive. This meant we were unable to get ours on Nookie cottage’s drive. We played musical car parks all week which was costly and frustrating! The market square car park is free (and close by) but getting a space there is the hard bit. The park and ride is also an option but we didn’t like the thought of leaving the car so far away from nookie cottage. The cottage itself is gorgeous and has everything you could possibly want for the week stay (apart from enough toilet roll - pack some extra to last the week!). We will most likely return next year as we loved the cottage and it’s location but we will be bringing my mini so we can definitely fit on the driveway!

    Kerrie, Sorry to hear about the parking problems. It is tight, but we get our C class Mercedes on the drive even when there is a car parked next door. Glad you enjoyed the cottage and we look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Chris & Jackie Property Owner

    The parking space was a bit tight but we got our mid size car in the space. Excellent location, loved the shower. If I had one niggle the bed was a tad soft. All in all an excellent stay and will go back

  • "Lovely cottage, centrally located and nice attention to detail."

    Well equipped kitchen & even had sharp knives!! Loved the coffee/drinks station. You need to list stuff like the hairdryer & straighteners on the website & then I wouldn’t have packed my own. Nicely decorated & maintained and easy to use heating & hot water.

    We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the positive feedback. Property Owner

    Parking space a bonus in Dartmouth no problems getting our car in it. Easy short walk into town. Top floor access not for everyone and as previously mentioned wouldn’t have wanted to be in the cottage with 4 adults fine for family.

  • "Lovely, warm and cosy period cottage with traditional features but all modern conveniences, including Nespresso coffee machine."

    Lovely quality crockery, cutlery etc and sharp kitchen knives, which are so often lacking. Comfortable bed. It was just two of us so we used the first floor bedroom and generously sized shower room, but there was another double and a single room on the second floor with a bathroom with a bath. Bed linen was good quality. Good access to internet and Smart TV apps and lovely, easy to use, gas fire to take the chill off when necessary. Appreciated the bottle of bubbly and initial supply of milk, tea bags, coffee capsules, dishwasher tablets and wash capsules (a second kitchen bin liner would have been useful). Like others we found the car park space tight, especially when the neighbouring space is occupied. My hatchback is described as compact by its manufacturer but at most it's small mid-sized, but it was a squeeze and you have to reverse in or you can't get out of the car. If we had been more than two plus a small dog and driven a larger car we wouldn't have been able to use the space. The ground floor area of the cottage is lovely, but again, we were only two and it would have been tight for space with 4 adults. Very easy walking distance of everything in town. We particularly liked the Dart Cafe as the dog was warmly welcomed. We drove to Brixham via the lower ferry, and went to Kingswear as foot passengers to ride the steam train and back. Easy access to the South Coast Path on a good day too.

    Thanks for the comprehensive review and positive feedback. Glad you enjoyed our cottage and beautiful Dartmouth. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Cosy cottage."

    Good fire, comfortable sofa and only a short walk to the centre of Dartmouth. Spacious bathroom on the first floor. Second double bedroom is small. The floor in the main bedroom slopes so it would be good to put something under the bed to level the bed. You can hear the neighbours walking about next door. We thought it was a nice little cottage.

    Thanks for the positive feedback. We are glad you got to experience the charms of staying in a 200 year old cottage ;-) Property Owner

The property

Nookie Cottage is a characterful 200 year old Grade II listed three-storey Georgian cottage resting in Dartmouth, Devon.

Perfectly suited to friends and families alike, the cottage boasts original features, perfectly blended with a stylish decór to create this homely abode.

Arriving at the cottage, an off-road parking space greets you, before making your way into the living/dining room, where you will see plenty of original features including a stunning fireplace and exposed beams.

Settle down with your loved ones on the plush corner sofa to watch TV as the gas fire warms the space.

Carry the conversation through to the stylish kitchen, fully-equipped with a range of modern amenities including a handy dishwasher, and make use of the facilities provided to prepare a heart-warming meal.

Gather your guests together around the dining table to recount the days adventures as you indulge in your culinary delights over a chilled bottle of wine.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head outdoors for an indulgent spot of alfresco dining on the peaceful setting of the private patio, soaking in the fresh sea air as you toast your favourite tipple.

As the evening grows darker, venture back indoors and climb the stairs to the first floor to prepare for bed with a refreshing rinse in the elegant shower room, stylishly tiled throughout, or climb a second set of stairs and pour in the bubbles to indulge in a luxurious soak in the bath.

Catch up on your favourite show from the comfort of the covers in the master bedroom, fit with a sumptuous king-size bed, enjoy an intimate escape from the excitement in the single bedroom, or drift off to a night embrace in the double room.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take the short stroll into the heart of Dartmouth where you'll find a host of unique shops, award winning restaurants and lively bars; discover the fascinating history of the 17th century on display at Dartmouth Museum or learn about the work that the Royal Navy Lifeboat Institution do at the RNLI Visitor Centre.

Historians will be delighted with a visit to the 16th century Tudor fortress of Bayard's Cove Fort as well as Dartmouth Castle, towering over the Dart Estuary, or if that's not your thing, indulge in a spot of traditional Devonshire afternoon tea at Dartmouth Castle Tea Rooms.

Pack up your picnic and spend a fun-filled day at the Blue Flag award-winning Blackpool Sands, where you can paddle the shores, soak up the sun with your favourite book, or tackle the waters aboard a kayak.

Keep the little ones entertained with a visit to Dartmoor Zoo, home to a vast array of endangered animals stretching across 33 acres of scenic parkland; why not book an experience and come face-to-face with the tigers?

Embark on a two-footed adventure and follow the South West Coast Path as it runs parallel to the dramatic coastline of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, taking you on a trek over rugged clifftops and offering some of the most superb views in Devon.

Choose Nookie Cottage as a base that you'll want to return to year after year.

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.
