  • "Well impressed with this property."

    A lot of thought has gone into the furnishings in the house even down to lovely fragrances in each room. Restaurants, shops and many more things are right on the doorstep. Very cosy and welcoming will be returning.

  • "Another holiday returning to Dartmouth."

    Very clean property. Beds very comfortable. Everything you needed in the kitchen. Lovely garden.. just wish the weather would have been nice so we could use it. All secure so the dog could not escape. Only feedback is the central heating. Although July, the weather wasn’t the best for us during our stay and one day we were very cold and wet after a day out in the rain! We couldn’t find any instructions on how to use the nest attached to the boiler for the heating and the thermostat by the tv wasn’t working/wouldn’t switch on. Other than that would definitely stay again.

    Thank you for you comments, we were sorry to hear that you couldn't control the heating, but we have checked this now and all is working as it should be. We hope we can welcome you back to the area again soon. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage - Central to everything ."

    We could have spent the entire week without using the car . The parking permit was a real plus Our two young Westies loved the sheltered secure garden and we liked it for Breakfast, Dinner and enjoy img the sun as it was a proper sun trap.

  • "Lovely central position."

    Everything we needed was there. Property was very nicely presented, with lovely sunny garden, which we used every day, with our two cockapoos. Would highly recommend and hope to return in the future.

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay."

    A few issues. Light sockets near bed in twin room don't work.The towel rail in bathroom doesn't work so it was cold. Mirror in bathroom almost falling off the wall. No small ovenproof dishes to cook with. Beds very comfortable with clean fresh bedding. Good location to harbour and town.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Hideaway."

    It was clean, pleasantly furnished, in a handy location in beautiful Dartmouth & we loved the pretty garden/terrace. The beds are comfortable & the kitchen has everything you may need.

  • "A perfect place for us."

    The kitchen table is a bit 'difficult' , why not put a small freestanding table back?

  • "Very nice property which is very close to the centre of Dartmouth and the river."

    The parking permit was a bonus. We used our car only once during our stay and walked or used the ferry and the steam train instead.

  • "Hideaway was lovely, decorated to a high standard."

    Everything we needed was there, information and walks in the area, much appreciated. Ample seating in the multi level rear garden. The car parking permit is a real bonus, with the car park being so close to hand, a few minutes walk away. The town with it’s shops/bars/restaurants on your doorstep. If I was being really picky, the radiators in the bathrooms have a covering of rust on the rungs. Also, the door to the decking from the kitchen has a large gap when it’s shut that you can see through it, just thinking about when it’s cold outside there could be a strong draught through the gap. These 2 points are observations and not criticisms. All in all, a very nice place to be.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. It really does help us. So pleased you liked our little house and Dartmouth. We will certainly be looking at the radiator and the door. If we can address between guests - we will. Property Owner

  • "On the plus side the central location in Dartmouth is excellent (with an M&S food store an easy walk away!"

    ), the house is well decorated and presented, both bathrooms have good quality modern fittings and the terraced garden is well cared for with plenty of comfortable seating. For anyone with mobility problems (or a large dog) the steps up to the front door and the two flights of stairs inside might be a problem as the stairs are quite steep with a narrow tread. This is more difficult because the kitchen/main living room is on the first floor and the toilets are on the ground and top floor so you do need to go up and down quite a lot. We also reported a missing upper spray arm in the dishwasher which will hopefully now be fixed but meant short wash cycles didn't clean too well - perhaps why we found dirty cutlery in the cutlery drawer when we arrived. The car parking pr is not far away and, as the lane the cottage is in is pretty quiet, unloading and loading luggage proved easy enough.

  • "A great little house in a great location."

    Perfect for our family of 4. Lots of useful extras like crabbing nets which the kids used, retractable washing line and a little welcome hamper which was a lovely touch. One real benefit here which can be overlooked is the ease of loading and unloading directly outside on a quiet road before parking a few minutes away, a plus for Dartmouth as this can often be a stressful start or end to a visit! We met the lovely owners as we left and they clearly care very much about their guests and have thought very carefully about how to make their property truly welcoming. Thank you!

    Near town centre and seafront. Garden area was spacious and a sun trap. Everything we needed for a brilliant holiday!

The property

Resting in the heart of Dartmouth, down a quiet lane, is this magnificent mid-terrace cottage, The Hideaway.

Situated just a few minutes walk from pubs, restaurants, shops and the town’s famous waterfront, this welcoming abode is a magnificent choice for families or couples looking for a coastal base in Devon.

After a day of exploring, the open-plan living space will welcome your return; take a seat on the sofa and tune into the Smart TV, or step into the kitchen area and get the cooker on as you prepare a favourite dish for all.

The addition of a washing machine means you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe, while the dishwasher aids the cleaning up!

On sunnier evenings, venture out to the enclosed rear garden and dine alfresco style at the furniture, or simply sit back and reflect on the days adventures.

As you look to catch up on sleep, there are two beautifully presented bedrooms to choose from, including a king-size with en-suite shower facilities on the second floor and a twin on the ground floor.

Begin the morning with a freshen up in the family bathroom before pulling on your walking boots and heading for the door.

Ideally positioned for enjoying all that South Devon has to offer, why not take to the breathtaking South West Coast Path easily accessible from the property and providing walking opportunities galore.

The centre of Dartmouth is filled with well-established restaurants to dine from, while the many independent shops are perfect for bringing a gift to take back home.

For a taste of history, spend an afternoon at the 14th-century castle or explore the 16th-century, riverside landmark of Bayard's Cove Fort.

If you are visiting with younger guests, unwind on the sandy beach of Blackpool Sands or venture out to the Woodlands Family Theme Park.

Travel further afield to the seaside town of Paignton and explore the Zoo, home to exotic animals including the Bornean Orangutan and Cotton-Top Tamarin.

The Hideaway is a charming base for a refreshing stay with your nearest and dearest.

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.
