    “Wonderful location despite/because of, the long slog up the hill.”

    We really missed: 1) a better shower configuration-kept flooding window sill 2) washer and dryer, 3) a little more kitchen space Bedrooms were lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The views were AMAZING.

    - Mr Hood, June 2021

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your kind feedback and we're glad you enjoyed your time at Topsail Cottage, especially the spectacular views! The hill is very steep but as you say that's what gives you the amazing views. We're sure our guests go back fitter than when they arrived! However, we will continue to stress the steepness of the hill in our listing especially as we know Topsail Cottage isn't the right choice for anyone with mobility issues. We are sorry if you struggled with the shower, it's true that it is quite powerful but thankfully we haven't experienced any problems to date. Also, we don't advertise a washer/dryer in the Cottage but it is a shame if you anticipated there would be one, and we hope this didn't impact your enjoyment. The kitchen is small, but we think it's practical and well-equipped and with many dining out during their stay, we hope meets all the necessary requirements. The beds are very comfortable and we think good mattresses are important so that our guests get good nights' sleep during their stay with us. I hope it was a happy stay for you all especially after more than a year of restrictions and that we will see you back in Dartmouth in the future. - Sykes owner relations

The property

This character terrace cottage is set in an elevated position, a short walk from the town of Dartmouth, with far reaching views across the stunning River Dart estuary.

The cottage comes with one designated car parking space for the duration of your stay (private car park adjacent to the cottage) which is a huge bonus in Dartmouth where parking can be difficult to find.

You can also stop directly outside the cottage briefly (double yellow lines) to unload.

The cottage is furnished to a high standard in a quiet location, ideal for two to four people keen to soak up the laid-back atmosphere of the town.

The cottage is set over three floors with an open-plan living area on the ground floor.

There is a well-equipped galley-style kitchen and a good-sized dining table; perfect for some great home-cooked meals to prepare and enjoy whilst benefitting the local views.

The sitting area has a sofa and chair in front of the feature fireplace with a woodburner, making it a good place to relax after a full day exploring.

There are two bedrooms, one on each floor, which are both beautifully presented and finished to a good standard of quality, with a family bathroom on the first level.

Leading from the living area are patio doors onto an enclosed upper decked balcony with full glass balustrades and furniture, making it perfect for some alfresco dining whilst admiring views towards the river and the surrounding landscape.

From the balcony there are stairs leading to a paved lower deck; a pretty, private terrace with bench, tables and easy chairs ideal for catching the afternoon and evening sun.

The town and riverside are just a 5-minute walk where you can find excellent restaurants, interesting boutique shops and of course all the activities along the waterfront.

These include sailing and river cruises up the River Dart to Greenway (Agatha Christie's former holiday home).

The Dartmouth area offers a wide range of days out including wine and cheese tasting at the award-winning Sharpham vineyard, exotic gardens open to the public and wonderful walks along the South West Coast Path.

Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon, offering many local events throughout the year, such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta.

Also within reach is the stunning beach at Blackpool Sands, which is one of South Devon's most beautiful natural treasures, set in a sheltered bay surrounded by evergreens and pines.

Topsail is a luxurious, character cottage in a great conservation area, to enjoy a wonderful holiday at any time of the year.

About the location

DARTMOUTH

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.
