  • “Really enjoyed staying here as it was clean, well maintained and not too far from the waterfront.”

    Parking was a known issue but I managed to get into the fee spaces within the market place and leave my car there so it wasn’t a problem.

    Parking was a known issue but I managed to get into the fee spaces within the market place and leave my car there so it wasn’t a problem. Equipped with everything I needed with an added benefit of a washing machine. I would have liked an iron but that’s a minor point really. Overall I’d stay again here as it was really comfortable and clean which is what you really want when you are away.

You are able to park directly outside for unloading/loading your car, and there is close on-street parking (some restrictions might apply), along with a large car park three minutes away.

The cottage is accessed directly from Lake Street and via three steps into a lounge/kitchen area.

The cosy lounge has original oak flooring, an L-shaped leather sofa, fireplace with integral light, wall-mounted Smart TV, unlimited highspeed broadband and a dining table with four chairs.

The galley kitchen has a range of well-equipped units, a four-ring ceramic hob, electric oven, slimline dishwasher, fridge, microwave and toaster.

Stairs lead up to the first floor from the lounge area with integral stairgate at the top.

On the first floor is a twin bedroom with original oak flooring, chest of drawers and a TV, housing all child-friendly equipment.

The landing leads to a family bathroom with bath, shower over, WC, hand wash basin and heated towel rail.

Also on the first floor is a built-in cupboard with washer/dryer, small freezer, iron, table board, clothes airer and combination boiler, providing unlimited hot water.

Stairs with an integral gate lead to the second floor to a double bedroom with en-suite cloakroom, built into the roof space enjoying a Velux window, exposed beams and more original oak flooring, with a king-size bed, chest of drawers, built-in wardrobe, TV and coffee making facility.

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.
