  • "Problems at Walter’s Rest:- 1) Serious smell of cooking oil in the apartment on arrival."

    Restaurant below apartment is venting cooking smells upwards through a tube. The smells enter the Children’s Bedroom through a sash window. The window can be moved to close it, but sash lock not working, so window falls down, so it is open all the time. 2) Sash window in living room can be pushed closed, but sash lock broken. This window is large, & drops down by approx 12 inches, & it cannot be closed. Cold can enter the room, gusts of wind, noise from below & seagull noise. 3) Sash window in bedroom can be pushed closed, but lock faulty. Window falls down. 4) Expelair extractor fan not working in bathroom. 5) Shower head faulty. It should be possible to adjust it to spray on the person having the shower. It sprays on the wall instead. 6) Toilet seat is continually moving when it is in use. The seat should be glued to the toilet pan, using bathroom sealant. 7) Serious difficulty in making the front door key open the door. The lock is very dry, & only needs oiling or addition of WD40 to fix it. This is a repeat complaint. 8) When unloading the car, or leaving the property at the end of stay, it is not possible to park legally in Raleigh Street. The description should say the car needs to be parked in a nearby road.

  • "Please emphasise the level of stair climbing more in the advert."

    It was not clear on the amount of stairs which could be a probable for others. It was exhausting carrying bags in and out - that needs to be highlighted! Location was amazing and overall the apartment was great. Very clean and had everything you need.

  • "A most enjoyable three day break."

    The accommodation was really nice and so close to the promenade. A perfect base from which to enjoy such a lovely town. We look forward to returning at some point in the in the not too distant future.

  • "If you don’t mind not having your car nearby, and having 42 steps to do to reach the flat."

    ...then it’s a perfect clean comfortable spacious apartment. Can even pop to the co-op or pick up a takeaway during the adverts! Will definitely return ourselves

  • "Super apartment in a central location."

    Great to have the parking permit which allowed us to park up for most of our stay foc and walk to a few locations rather than drive.

The property

Walter's Rest is a contemporary third-floor apartment, set in the vibrant town of Dartmouth, Devon.

Sitting near the waterfront of the River Dart, this humble abode is in the ideal location for smaller groups of friends or family looking to explore the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

As you arrive at the property following an exciting journey, pop down your bags and hang your coats in the hallway before heading into the living/dining room where you can cosy up on the sofa with a hot cup of tea.

Make the most of time with family and grab a board game from the shelf for some friendly competition, before flicking on the TV and getting lost in a movie.

Step down into the fully-equipped kitchen and rustle up a scrumptious evening meal for the whole family to enjoy around the dining table.

No need to worry about who will be doing the dishes tonight, with a dishwasher completing the set-up.

When you feel yourself drifting off, pick yourself up and wander into your bedroom for the week.

At the end of the hallway, a bright and spacious double bedroom is the perfect place to rest your head and catch a full night's sleep.

Wake the next morning feeling revitalised as you make your way into the shower room and indulge in a thoughtful and refreshing shower as you take your time to get dressed for the day.

Pick out a suitable outfit for the day's activities in the twin bedroom, before pulling on your walking shoes and heading for the door.

A short walk will take you to The Paddle Shack, where you can participate in an exhilarating paddle boarding lesson.

Hire a boat and bob along the River Dart to the pretty hamlet of Tuckenhay and stop off for a bite at the Maltsers Arms.

Visit the enchanting 14th century Dartmouth Castle to learn of the Hundred Years War and how the first castle in Dartmouth came to be.

The nearby seaside town of Paignton is home to the Paignton Zoo, where exotic animals such as Bornean Orangutan and Cotton-Top Tamarin are waiting to meet you.

Spend a day in Torquay discovering prehistoric caves and rocky beaches.

Be sure to stay at Walter's rest for an unforgettable trip to Devon.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
