    “The cottage was lovely, kitchen was fully equipped, every room had a smart TV, and the Christmas decorations added a really nice touch.”

    We also had a card, prosecco and chocolates left out for us. We were blown away, it was a lovely gesture.

The property

The Old Wash House, winner of the 2019 Visit England ROSE Award, is a delightfully presented and recently refurbished Grade II listed property in historic Dartmouth.

Retaining many original character features, including period fireplaces and the remains of the original wash house within its enclosed courtyard, this is a fascinating holiday home in a truly beautiful location. The property is in the Ford area of Dartmouth, just off Victoria Road and a 5-10 minute level walk into the town and its array of boutiques, galleries, restaurants and tea rooms, as well as the picturesque River Dart.

Blackpool Sands beach is just a 5-10-minute drive away whilst Woodlands Theme Park is just three miles outside of Dartmouth, making this an ideal retreat for families looking to explore the Start Bay coastline and local attractions. The property is finished to a very high standard and has off-road parking for one car.

The sitting room is comfortably furnished with a log burner effect gas fire, whilst the kitchen/dining area is beautifully equipped with built in appliances.

There is also a fabulous ‘dog house’, a designated home for your dog to enjoy, plus a utility cupboard and dining area.

With three bedrooms (two doubles - one en suite - on the first floor, and one single in the attic), plus a family bathroom, it is very well equipped for a family.

Outside the property is a sunny paved terrace within the enclosed, walled courtyard, with seating.

There is also off-road parking for one car.

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.
