  • "Would highly recommend staying at Simples."

    The location is fantastic, so close to everything but also lovely and quiet. The outdoor space is a wee piece of heaven and great for either eating in or just having a place to chill outside. The weather was hot and sunny during our stay and we spent a lot of time in the garden, it was just idyllic and so peaceful. Inside we found the apartment spotlessly clean and had all the accessories and amenities we required. The beds were comfortable and the shower was powerful...just what you need for a great holiday. Having the parking permit was also a great benefit, we pretty much parked up the car when we arrived and didn't use it again until we left.

  • "We love this little cottage apartment."

    It’s the perfect bolt hole for a wonderful Dartmouth stay. The main attraction for us is the fabulous garden as it gets the sun almost all day which is a massive bonus dartmouth. The location is also superb. We have stayed here twice and wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Thanks for having us Simples - we will be back!

    We loved the apartment it was lovely we particularly liked the outdoor setting - there was two of us and our dog the apartment had everything we needed we were able to cook and have nice utensils to enjoy our meals -the only thing I missed was a dish washer but understand that space is limited and managed perfectly well without one

  • "The house was beautiful, the size was perfect, the beds were comfortable, the garden was a god send for the nice weather."

    It’s location to all the local amenities are perfect. The fact that the apparent allows dogs is brilliant as there are so many routes/scenic walks to take that are a stone throw from Simple’s (fully recommend walking to The Castle and Sugary Cove with your dog). The only few things I would change about the apartment would be a to add a proper freezer rather than the small ice section in the fridge. The Sky television was poor. I completely understand we the guests don’t own the box so the Sky Box would have limitations but at least allow the free view function inside the TV to be used so basic channels are accessible.

  • "Fantastic property brilliantly located."

    Lovely inside and the outdoor space was a treat for its location. Only niggle were the sofas. We were only 2 adults but we couldn’t comfortably sit on the small sofa. It’s a two double bed property but can’t imagine any additional people having anywhere to comfortably sit in the lounge area. Great to have a 3pm check-in time.

  • "THANK YOU ."

    We absolutely loved our 1 week stay at “ Simples “ in Dartmouth and thought the description of the property was 100% accurate. The location of the property is excellent and so central . The apartment has been refurbished to a very high standard and besides the quality of the fixtures and fittings so much thought been put into items provided to enhance your stay . It feels like quality items are in the apartment not just basic quality items. The terrace for an apartment is amazing and even though it was November we sat out to enjoy it , how could you not ! Thank you so much for such a relaxing and enjoyable stay . We would definitely return again and recommend “ Simples “ most highly to any of our friends visiting Dartmouth. Alan.

  • "It would be more convenient to collect the key from the key safe at the property rather than Coast & Country office."

    A fuse tripped out on several occasions - initially we couldn't sort this as the fuse box was located in a locked cupboard. The accommodation itself is lovely and we liked it being all on one level however the entrance stairs are quite shabby. Coast & Country were easy to deal with once we got through to them but Sykes only provide a centralised national number which meant lots of hanging on phone lines waiting to be answered and then waiting again whilst they called the local office.

  • "Really nice apartment with every possible convenience included, the outdoor space is perfect and a nice place to relax in the sun."

    The photos on |Sykes are accurate so I will not talk about the many good points of being there but just be sure it suits everyone a couple of points; Although very close to the "flat area" by the river / boat pond it is still up a steep (short) hill, followed by a set of very steep internal stairs to the front door with a sharp bend at the top (like climbing a turret). Will not be a problem for most people and was not for us but happy we didn't have anyone with us who was infirm - not sure if previous reviews mention this. The parking permit is a godsend as parking is really restrictive in Dartmouth, even then its hard to be sure that you will get back into Mayors Avenue car park at the end of the day. The curtains / blinds do not give enough shade to block out the morning sun, this could and should be easily fixed by the owners with some blackouts. Church clock tower practically next door with hourly rings - although I never actually heard any before 4am I did wake for all of the others. Gets better over the week and quaint Please pay attention to the instructions for waste disposal, the family in the week before us left bags of rubbish from a barbecue in a dustbin on the terrace (why is that even there?) which was not removed by the cleaners and we didn't notice for a couple of days until the smell / fly's started. Not cool guys and plain lazy, did not appreciate cleaning up after you and taking that rotten fish through the apartment. Anyway, despite the above we had a great time and Simples is almost ideal, I think just some better curtains would be a simple fix.

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.
