The property

Set in a prominent position at the heart of Dartmouth, The Captains House is a gorgeous four-storey Grade II listed Georgian house offering the ultimate escape to the South Hams District of Devon.

Hosting four fabulous bedrooms, this arresting dwelling is perfectly suited to family and friends alike.

Step inside this homely abode and be greeted by a light and contemporary kitchen, complete with all the essential appliances for any self-catering stay.

Cook up a storm at the electric oven, before heading across to the dining room to devour your fantastic feast whilst indulging in a chilled bottle of bubbly from the handy wine cooler.

Retire to the warm and inviting sitting room resting on the first floor, cosying up to your loved ones as you watch flames flicker within the electric stove.

Whisk yourself away to the beautiful super-king-size with en-suite shower, just a few steps away, or venture up to the second-floor and discover two additional bedrooms comprised of a super-king-size with en-suite bathroom and a king-size with an en-suite shower.

From here, a final twin bedroom awaits you on the third floor, served by a sophisticated bathroom where you can unwind with a long afternoon soak.

Make the most of your time in Devon with days spent exploring all the finest local attractions such as the Royal Avenue Gardens, Dartmouth Museum, Bayard's Cove Fort and Dartmouth Castle.

Head on over to Kingswear and embark on an awe-inspiring walk along the South West Coast Path, uncovering incredible landmarks such as the Brownstone Battery and The Daymark along the way.

Explore the rugged clifftops of Berry Head National Nature Reserve, where you can take in the spectacular views of the coast, or head inland to Dartmoor National Park for a fun-filled day wandering Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park and High Willhays.

Visit Woodlands Family Theme Park and Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, or spend the day in the Ancient city of Exeter and enjoy tours of Exeter Cathedral and St Nicholas Priory, before wining and dining in one of the many delicious bars and restaurants.

Head underground at Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves, or explore the wonderful Babbacombe Model Village, both a pleasant drive away, and soak up the sunshine on the cliffs of Compass Cove Beach whilst delighting in a lovingly prepared picnic.

Live life to the fullest on an escape to The Captains House.

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.
