  • "We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at The Nest."

    It’s lovely and quiet and yet only a stone throw from the harbour - you can watch the boats coming and going and see out to sea. We enjoyed walks along the coast and the estuary and coming back to a light, spacious and comfortable apartment with some lovely finishing touches.

  • "What a lovely holiday property which immediately felt like home."

    We had the best time despite the weather! It is in the perfect location for days out, restaurants, shops and pubs. I can highly recommend this property and we would not hesitate to go back. Even though it says there is parking it is very restricted. We found it easier to use the Park and Ride car park rather than keep moving the car. We paid using the app every morning so didn’t even have to get out of bed!

  • "We had a wonderful stay in the nest and the location was perfect - right in the centre of town and a 30 second walk from the harbour."

    The layout of the apartment was also very nice and spacious for the two of us. The decor was beautiful and the place was very well cleaned. In general the facilities were very good but one possible improvement would be to leave washing machine tablets as we were given dishwasher ones instead when there is no dishwasher.

  • "Personally we would have prefered a sofa that you could rest your head on, rather than one that is cut of at the shoulder."

  • "The property was lovely."

    Very modern decoration, clean and spacious. Unfortunately my husband had been in hospital shortly before and the 45 steep steps were a struggle. The only slightly misleading bit was the on street parking. There were double yellow lines in front of the property and parking was for up to one hour. The nearby carpark was for up to 4 hours. We ended up using the park and ride car park 5-10 minutes away.

  • "Very lovely and comfortable place."

    Right in the heart of the town.

  • "A really beautiful bedroom."

    Super comfortable bed. Lounge okay. Very clean. Good location. Nice kitchen. Would ideally have liked a dishwasher, due to covid still being around. However, fully understand the lack of room for one.

  • "Lovely cosy property in centre of town with better views of the river than expected."

    Well maintained and scrupulously clean. Very comfortable bed too!! Perhaps more comfortable seating in living room would be considered as the 40+ steps up to the property took their toll on my poor old legs!! Will definitely be back though.

    Paul, thank you for your feedback and we love to hearing guests enjoying Dartmouth and our nest! We've taken your feedback on board and now swapped the sofa to a softer option which we hope will add some more comfort. We'd love to host you again and hear about your Dartmouth highlights :) Best wishes, Olly and Georgie Property Owner

  • "This property was extremely clean and well maintained."

    There was a lovely view through to the River Dart and Kingswear. A great location for the town for the shops and restaurants and river for ferries and boat trips etc. Will be rebooking this property.

  • "Fantastic compact flat, beautifully decorated with a double aspect (view) of Dartmouth harbour and the town (if you use the skylights)."

    Right in the centre of Dartmouth with easy access to ferry’s, shops and more importantly pubs. Even happy to contend with the 48 steps up to the flat!

The property

Resting in the ever-popular town of Dartmouth, within the picturesque South Hams AONB in South Devon, is The Nest, a delightful third-floor apartment within a stones throw of the River Dart and just moments from the bustling high street.

The apartment has been wonderfully presented and serves as a great base for couples seeking an unforgettable pursuit to Devon.

After a day of sightseeing, look forward to relaxing on the comfortable sofa and flicking through the TV channels, reflecting upon the day’s activities with thoughts of where to head next.

A large dormer window provides picturesque views across the river to Kingswear and towards Dartmouth Castle, tempting your exploration further.

Cross over to the quaint yet well-equipped kitchen and really make the most of the space, offering an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and even a washing machine, so you won’t have to pack all your clothes.

A romantic dinner can be enjoyed at the dining table or book a restaurant within the town; there’s plenty to choose from.

Finishing off the interior of this charming apartment is an inviting double bedroom served by a gleaming shower room, finished with bath and shower over so you can pick how best to start the day.

When you’re ready to explore, meander the narrow streets lined with boutique shops and art galleries before making your way down to the waterfront where you can watch the boats bob with tide, and even hire your own boat if you wish to take to the water yourself.

The town hosts a number of festivals throughout the year including the Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October, providing something for everyone!

Venture along the South West Coast Path and immerse yourself in scenic splendour or pop off your walking boots and sink your toes into the golden sands of Sugary Cove Beach, providing you with a moment of true relaxation.

Hop on board the Dartmouth Steam Railway towards Paignton, encompassing unspoilt Devonshire countryside along the way, and pay a visit to Paignton Zoo, home to over 2000 animals and 300 species.

However you choose to spend your time, The Nest provides an excellent touring base for discovering Dartmouth and the Devonshire coastline.

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.
