The property

Resting in the heart of the popular and picturesque town of Dartmouth, within the South Hams AONB in South Devon, is Peggy's Locker, a charming first-floor apartment right beside the River Dart and behind the high street, close to the amenities and attractions of Dartmouth.

This property is ideally placed for a couple or small family wanting to explore Dartmouth and the surrounding picturesque coastline and countryside of South Devon.

Step inside the property to find a traditionally styled, welcoming space, with a compact but fully-equipped galley-style kitchen, which really makes the most of the space, providing you with all of the appliances you'll need to created delicious home-cooked meals during your stay.

Dine together in the living/dining room, where the dining table comfortably seats all guests, before retreating to the sofa and curling up with a good book from the bookcase or finding a favourite film to watch on the TV, as you admire the feature exposed brick wall, which houses a traditional feature oven.

As the evening draws to a close, make your way to the spacious king-size double bedroom, complete with fitted wardrobes for hanging your belongings, as well as a charming window seat and a desk area, while the second bedroom would be ideal for one or two children with the addition of a pull out bed.

Both rooms are served by the family bathroom, which offers a bath with shower over, so you can choose to start the day with a quick rinse or end it with a rejuvenating soak in the bath.

When you're ready to explore, you will discover that you are not far away from a host of amenities and attractions; the River Dart is just a minute's walk away, as are a handful of shops for picking up essentials, along with restaurants, pubs and takeaway, perfect for when you don't feel like cooking.

Explore the bustling town further, meandering the ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops and art galleries, making your way to the harbour, where you can watch the boats coming and going, and even hire your own boat if you wish to explore the waters further.

Visit the Royal Avenue Gardens with a picnic, brush up on your local history knowledge at the Tudor-style Dartmouth Museum and Bayard's Cove Fort, a magnificent 16th century fortress, and be sure to pay a visit to Dartmouth Castle, which has stood as the guard of the Dart Estuary since the 15th century.

For a day by the sea, take your pick of a number of glorious beaches that inhabit the surrounding area, including the Blue Flag awarded Blackpool Sands, along with Slapton Sands, both of which are extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth.

Hop on a ferry and cross the river towards Kingswear, which rests opposite Dartmouth, and is within easy reach of the National Trust's Coleton Fishacre House and beautiful exotic garden.

Walk along the South West Coast Path towards Brixham for some delicious, freshly caught seafood, as well as a wonderful beach, and pass attractions like Brownstone Battery and Berry Head National Nature Reserve.

Be sure to enjoy a journey on the Dartmouth Steam Railway towards Paignton, which encompasses some incredible Devonshire countryside along the way, while Paignton itself is home to a zoo, a host of pretty beaches and a pier, perfect for a family-friendly day out.

Peggy's Locker is well placed for discovering Dartmouth and the surrounding Devonshire coastline and countryside.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
