  • “The cottage was beautiful and in a ...”
    The cottage was beautiful and in a great location. The standard of facilities was really high and the size was perfect for our family (2 adults and 1 child). If I was being very picky, a washing machine would have been helpful. We had an amazing holiday. It was very straightforward to book through Sykes and when I did need to contact Sykes, they responded very quickly. The owner was also incredibly helpful and answered any questions we had before arrival.

The property

This fabulous character 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 is furnished to a high standard, providing a stylish holiday home 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 kitchen and a good-sized dining table; perfect for some great home-cooked meals to prepare and enjoy whilst enjoying the local views.

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

There are two spacious bedrooms, one on each floor, which are both beautifully presented and finished to a very high standard with a family bathroom on the first floor.

Leading from the living area are patio doors on to an enclosed upper decked balcony with full glass balustrades and furniture, making it perfect for some alfresco dining or enjoying the lovely views to the river and the surrounding area.

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

The town and riverside are just an 5 minute walk where you can find excellent restaurants, interesting boutique shops and of course all the activities along the waterfront, including sailing and river cruises up the 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, there are many local events throughout the year within walking distance from Topsail, 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, with it being 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. 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 Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular sandy beaches are a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
